18 men up against it!!!!!!!!!!!

Again the 3rds struggled to fill a team but managed to take the field with 18 men against a Beaumaris side who needed to cement a top four position in a very even competition. 

The first quarter was very tough with a hungry Beauy putting on 51 points to our one goal. Graudins first goal for the club was a small win for the boys.  The score-line did not reflect the effort, but we were committing way too many turnovers. 

The second quarter was tougher as the lack of rotations kicked in, with Beauy piling on another six goals to our one point.

The second half we set a goal to walk out with our heads held high. We talked about the Bombers & Carlton & not giving up against a team that was going to try and feast on our lack of rotations.  We fought really hard in the third term, and at the end of the quarter there was not one player that hadn’t run themselves into the ground, but we all could look each other in the eye and be proud of the effort.  The run and tackle was inspirational, and we stemmed the tide with Beauy kicking just 4.1 to our 1.2. 

The last quarter was tough, we had spent all our tickets and Beauy were keen to assert their dominance again. We managed to reduce their scoring but did not add to ours. 

The boys finished off the game heads held high, proud of what we had delivered in very tough circumstances.  Our whole team put in 100% and it was hard to pick the best.
