Another week, another myriad of changes. Many of which; made up the starting midfield the previous week.

Depth is starting to be tested a bit, however unlike other years, we are defying these challenges.

Despite our ascendancy on the ladder, we were wary of this Monash match and getting off to the right start!

Very early it was apparent the whole game was basically going to be played on one wing, with a strong breeze pushing across the ground.

Scoring was at a premium and Monash came to the break with a slight lead. Sam Bailey in a return match for the club looked likely up front BUT goals were hard to come by.

A single goal was scored to the Monash end in the second quarter and we were being regularly outplayed. Cam Wallace, Karsten Rodenberg & Ed Aujard were solid contributors.

At the half we found ourselves 13 points in arrears. Down, but not out.

We summoned up a bit of a resurgence in the third to allow ourselves a shot at a win in the last. Michael Mazzocato had been monstrous on the last line of defence, while Jez Cator (skipper) had returned from injury well.

Down to 2 on the bench for the last, I’ve seen a lot of Carey Reserves sides flop in the past – This years side is dogged and clawed their way to within 6 points late in the match before a couple of Monash behinds all but snuffed out the chance of pinching a win [Monash 5-8-38 – Carey 4-6-30].

Probably only pleased with 30minutes worth of our effort, we came off a little flat BUT there was some great resilience shown and plenty we can work on for future weeks.

We look forward to testing ourselves against a fancied Brighton side next week.
