Our round 3 clash saw us playing Old Melburnians at home on the Anzac Day weekend.  After a lacklustre performance last week we had a very solid week on the track and I asked for an improved effort over 4 quarters this week regardless of the result, and that is exactly what I got. 

The game was a shootout the whole day after OM's got off to a quick start. We were trailing most of the day by about 4 goals until we really got our game going late in the third quarter and into the last. Halfway through the last we hit the lead by 2 goals on the back of some great forward line pressure.  Unfortunately OM's hit back with some quick goals late and we could not return the favour.  We ended up losing 16.5.101 to 17.11.113, a much improved effort on the previous week. 

I am very proud of how the boys all ran out the game and didn't give up even when it could have been easy to.  We will train hard this week and hopefully can get win number 2 for the year as we face Fitzroy this week at Victoria Park.
