Chirnside travelled out to East Burwood for round 2, we welcomed in 2 new players to the club in Ben Woods and Thomas Long, Ben woods was the stand out player for the day, and Longy started well with an early goal only to injury the hamstring and take no further part in the game.

Birt, Pesh and Sidari all came in for the 1st game and were amongst the best with Sammy Morton looking dangerous up forward and kicking 4 for the day and could have kicked a bag.

The boys had a good start to the game and in particular the 2nd quarter we started to play the brand of football we have trained all pre-season for, and went into half time with a 31 point lead.

In the 2nd half we were outscored by 7 goals to 4 and inaccurate kicking didn't help with 8 points kicked in the last quarter but ran out winners by 18 points.

We were pleased with the win and takes us to 2 wins from 2 with a really positive start to the year.

Plenty of hard work needed on the track this week when we take Boronia on at home.
