Round 7 v Boronia

Chirnside Park 11.6.72
Boronia             2.0.12

This week the boys took on the Boronia Hawks at Home. What an amazing 4 quarters of footy.

Well done to the boys who stood up in the ruck and worked hard to tap it down to their teammates. Ruck work is something the team have really improved on this year, being able to share the load has been a huge advantage.

Effort levels were high throughout the entire game. Dave and Dom asked for 20 metre runs and handballs and the boys executed the use of swing man well today. All 19 players once again played their role whether it was defending down back, run and carrying through the middle or standing tall, taking some big marks and kicking goals down forward.

Goals were well spread again today with Will bagging 4, Isaac kicking 3, Hugh with 2 and Zak and Ryekan kicking 1 each.

A well rounded team effort from all involved.

Congratulations to our award winners Aussie (medal), Xander, Josh V and Bruce

Thanks as always to our parent helpers.

Round 6 v Glen Waverley

Chirnside Park 7.2.44

Glen Waverley 5.4.34

This week the boys played away at Glen Waverley. The ground was quite a bit wider than we are used to playing on. The boys listened well to Dave and Dom's instructions using swing man and the centre corridor for most of the game.

Team work and effort are a just a couple of our team rules and the boys well and truly delivered today. Goals were well spread again with Hugh kicking 3 and Zak, Will, Jackson and Cooper bagging a goal each. The back line defended extremely well, doing their job to clear the ball out of the danger zone.

The boys in the middle worked hard to win the ball, a lot of the time at ground level and then run and carry with it giving our forward line every opportunity to score.

Well done boys on a fantastic 4 quarters of footy today, we had the wind and some ginormous opponents to overcome

Awards this week went to Hugh (medal) Kai, Harry and Casey congratulations boys well deserved.

Thanks as always to our parent helpers

Round 5 v Rowville

This week the boys took on The Rowville Knights at home.

It was going to be an interesting game from the get given that the boys fell short playing against them in the lightening premiership just last week.

The boys put in an incredible team effort and we're definitely ahead of our opponent in hard ball gets, carries and runs. We continue to ask that they get their hands on the footy first, now becoming easier having Aaron, Ryekan, Isaac and Josh V stand out in the ruck contests.

Congratulations to our goal kickers Isaac (3), Zak (2), Harry (1), Bruce (1), Aaron (1), Cooper (1)

Final Scores Chirnside 9.8.62
Rowville Knights 2.2.14

Congratulations to our award winners Maximus (medal) and Will, Xander and Zak well done boys
Thanks as always to all our parent helpers.

Chirnside Park 12.7.77
Vermont           1.1   7

BEST: Josh, Cooper, Harry

GOALS: Will 3, Harry, Cooper & Jackson 2, Kai, Charles & Josh B 1 each

We could not have hoped for a better start to the season.

The boys took the field against Vermont (away) and were ready to play from the first siren.
