Round 3 saw us host Fitzroy with both teams coming off a loss it was a crucial game to win as it can set us the season early in the year.
The first quarter was hotly contested and our tackle pressure and run with the ball in hand really got us off to a good start as we kicked 5 goals to 2.
The second and third quarters saw us miss a few easy shots and go away from the team football that had us controlling the game. Although we were still in front on the scoreboard, Kicking 5.8 for those two quarters left the door open for Fitzroy to get back into the game.
For the final quarter we wanted to snub out any opportunity of a comeback from Fitzroy so we really focused on the basic areas of improvement that we identified from the first three quarters. This reflected throughout the quarter as we moved the ball with ease and kicked another four quick goals to put the game out of reach of our opponents.
Although we won convincingly in the end it could have been an even larger margin as we once again missed opportunities to kick goals that we should be kicking. All in all a good day and we move onto St Bedes Mentone next week for a tough encounter.
