8.9-57 v 13.12-90

The Thirds this week had twelve changes from the side that was beaten by De La the week before and, in a first for a few years, we had to leave up to three players out of the team, suggesting a real strength in the club this season.

The first half from Carey was sensational, our midfield dominated with Roach taking on a very tough assignment in the ruck and doing very well. We went into half-time leading by just under two goals, given that we had some inaccurate kicking too, we were clearly the better side of the half.

The third quarter started well, kicking the first goal but slowly, Fitzroy clawed back our lead.  Once they had done that, we went goal for goal until the last 10 mins of the third quarter when our tired legs started to show and Fitzroy kicked away from us a bit.

In the last quarter, Carey showed good fight, four of our better players fought on whilst carrying injuries that they sustained during the game, but all we were able to do was restrict Fitzroy and were not able to capitalise on our effort by kicking goals

In the end, Fitzroy’s 33-point win was well deserved, but did not reflect how close the game actually was. Their coaching staff were very complimentary of our teams efforts.  

Hopefully, our squad has realised that we can match up in this competition, learn from this experience and get a win soon to launch our season forward!
