Round 14 saw us facing up against OT for the third and final time of the year. After a smashing last week at the hands of Fitzroy it was clear the boys wanted to bounce back hard against OT.  Bolstered by a few returns from injury we were full of enthusiasm and keen to get hands on the ball in the first quarter, although this turned out to be our downfall at times as we over-committed to the contest and at times had multiple people trying to do one person’s job. At quarter-time we trailed by two goals as OT came out cleaner than us and worked harder. 

After some changes in position and settling of the nerves we were able to get a few late goals in the second quarter and claw our way back to trail by one point at half-time. 

The second half was much better as we started to put pressure on their defenders with tackle pressure and hitting the scoreboard too. 

As the rain began to fall harder the game got sloppier and I'm sure wasn't the greatest spectacle to watch at times, but what was important was that we were leading and fighting hard in the process.  We ended up running out four-goal winners in a scrappy match, but we will take the four points and it was great to get some guys through a game of footy who had missed for a while through injury.
