Coming off a good win against St Bedes the week before we really concentrated on getting another good start to the match to put early breathing space between us and our opponents.
Our start was almost exactly as we planned as we were first to the contest and converted early shots on goal to take the lead by 2 goals at quarter time.
The second quarter saw us take control of the game as we moved the ball quickly and run hard in both directions to nullify our opponents ball use. Although whilst we kicked 5 goals in the quarter we did allow blues to kick 3 themselves as we took a 4 goal lead at half time.
The third term was an arm wrestle with both teams cracking in hard and not taking the best of their chances. It was a stalemate as both teams only managed 1 goal each.
The final term was great to watch as although we once again kicked a few behinds we managed to run over blues as we kicked 4.6 to 1.2 in the last term to run out winners by 45 points.
A pleasing effort but still plenty to work on.
