Q1 Q2 Q3 Final Score Us 0.3 2.7 7.9 9.13.67 Them 4.0 6.1 7.2 9.5.59
Round 11 saw us take one Williamstown as coming off the back of a solid performance against Fitzroy, we were keen to keep the momentum rolling and get another win.
The first quarter was a story of inaccuracy by foot. Both field kicking and goal kicking was really costing us as we kicked 0.3 to 4.0. We simply butchered the ball and really should have converted into goals.
The second quarter was better although we did drop out intensity for a 5 minute period and allowed our opponents to score 2 quick goals. We went into half time trailing 2.7 to 6.1.
The 3rd quarter for the second week in a row was all ours. Our pressure and run was fantastic. We overlapped with handballs and reall took in to our opponents. Some great unselfish acts really underlined our team first approach and saw us take the lead at 3 quarter time with the scores 7.9 to 7.2.
We knew Williamstown would come out hard in the final term and we just had to hold our nerve and not get flustered holding the lead. We were able to absorb the pressure and ran out winners by 8 points with the final scores 9.13 to 9.5.
The rep games next weekend sees us with a well timed break and allows us to prepare for Melburnians after the break.
