REPORT: Chirnside took on Warrandyte to open the season, with a hard and long pre-season the boys were eager to get the senior club of to a great start to the year with its first win.

'Mitch Tranner skipper lost the toss and the boys were kicking into the wind.

We had lots of opportunities going inside 50, but unfortunately couldn't get the score on the board. We went into 1/4 time 10 points down.

Going into the 2nd Quarter we needed to make some changes and open up the forward line for 'Chris Smith and our small forwards. Woody went into the ruck and dominated giving us 1st use of the ball, with Boofa and Pants dominating the clearances we created 8 shots on goal, but inaccuracy hurt us, Chris Smith was looking dangerous and could have put the game away by half time. Chirnside 8 point lead at half time

¾ we pushed a spare man behind the ball in Ryan Mitchell who dominated across half baack, repelling many Warrandyte inside 50's. Both sides kicked 1 goal in the 3rd quarter, which we took as win.

Going into the last quarter you could see in the boy's eyes they were not going to let this game go. Chirnside held Warrandyte to 1 point for the quarter and won the game by 13points to start the season of a positive note..
