With one of the hardest pre-seasons completed under Matt Parker’s program and guidance of Richard Bottomer we were ready for Caulfield.
We have also picked up some handy recruits, which helped bolster an up and coming young list.
The first and second quarters where as expected, intense pressure and a lot of tackles with both sides being inaccurate.
The last ten minutes of the half we were able to get a few late goals through Will Nichols and we went in at half time four goals up.
The message at half time was to remain focussed on the pressure we had applied in the first half and stay disciplined to our game style.
The third quarter was one of the best quarters I have seen in my time at Carey. Everything we had been training was coming off and we were able to put Caulfield to the sword!
We ran the game out well and it was a proud moment for coaching staff and supporters a like.
It was a great day for the club with the seconds implementing our game style also and running out convincing winners.
Having said that we come up against a strong St Bernard's outfit this weekend and we are fully aware of what to expect!
