The panther threes are on the board!
After showing consistent improvement week on week with no result going our way this year, we managed a very solid effort against Parkdale and came away with a 71 point win!
We had a lot to play for celebrating Travis Chiuchiarelli & Tom Chang’s 50th games and the team did not let these guys down.
Old Carey jumped out of the blocks booting 10-4 in the first half to our opposition’s 1-3. It was our midfield who dominated and won the ball with Tom Mcready Bryan, Spencer Cambridge & Trav Chiuchiarelli wreaking havoc in the forward line.
Second half started slow, we spoke about not dropping off and playing four consistent quarters, our opposition came out hard and worked our midfield over and won the third quarter by 2 points. We were disappointed but with a 10 gaol lead going into the final term, we were still confident that we could finish off strong.
Our backline were sensational under any pressure, mopping up and driving the ball forward all day with Nick Quinn, Sam Fennessey & Simon Lenders all showing strong resilience & leadership
In the final term we scored 3-3 to 0-3 and closed the game out nicely with momentum to take into our match against Scotch next week
Things to work on: fitness, playing 4 quarters and getting a consistent team on the park
Things going well: effort, tackling, intensity, playing for our mates, forward line and back line working well together
