Season 2017 started off in a positive fashion after a solid first game of the year against a Uni Blues side fresh from Section One.
The start of the game couldn't have been much better as we dominated possession and kicked away to an early three goal lead, although some lapses in concentration allowed our opponents back into the game as they kicked a couple of late goals. The second quarter was much of the same as we once again gained ascendency for much of the quarter then yet again allowed our opponent back into the game, allowing three goals in the last five minutes.
We addressed our issues at half-time and whilst we were tailing we were confident our fitness would come into play in the second half. A much more mature performance in the second half saw us hold Uni Blues to one goal whilst we managed eight.
A few things to work on, but a lot of very positive signs for the first time we have played together as a team.
Special thanks to the people that helped out on game day. We are always looking for more help so don't be afraid to put your hand up if you see Gary around!
A week off for Easter then on to a great test against Williamstown in Williamstown.
