A tough day in beautiful conditions.

With last week’s win we were ready to go against Old Scotch on their beautiful home ground at Camberwell Sports Grounds in great conditions for footy.

Going into the game we were definitely pegged as the underdogs but we felt that despite having another 11 changes in our side (including 5 of our best from the previous week) that if we could gel as a team and play out four strong quarters, catching Scotch on a 5 day turnaround, we may be able to get close enough to pinch a win late in the game.

We charged out of the blocks and in the first quarter our backline was sensational in repelling the Scotch entries and our midfield drove the ball long and hard into our forward line on the counter attack – we finished the quarter just 2 points down and feeling great. 3-3-21 to 3-1-19

Sadly, this was the last we saw of Scotch and we chased their tail for the rest of the day as they piled on 8 goals 6 to our 1 goal in the second quarter, 7-5 to our 2 points in the third and 7-4 to our 2-2 in the last.

Scotch proved to us that we have a long way to go in a lot of areas but MAINLY fitness. They ran very hard all day and their midfield ran us off our feet.

We did take some positives out of the game and some items to work on, the return of club great Brett De Leijer will help our backline and midfield in the near future.
