Our first home game of the year was met with a tough challenge to field a team.  Only 8 players available from the previous week due to injury, players moving up to the 2s and the long weekend.  With a bench comprising of an U19 playing his second game of Aussie rules ever and the coach pulling on the boots, things seemed a bit nervy before the bounce…  But the group of top up players banded together quickly and sealed a very strong victory in the end by 6 goals

The key to the win was getting off to a good start and we were able to do that by kicking the first two goals, but St Bedes kicked back and we went into quarter time down by 1 point.  (3.2-20 to 3.3-21).  After quarter time, our new players began to gel and found ourselves pulling away with a two goal lead going into half time.  (8.5-53 to 6.3-39)

We had a chat at half time about the opposition looking tired and the fact that we felt we had control of the game despite the scoreboard showing we were only two goals up.  The team reset, found the next few gears and piled on 5 goals 5 to 1 goal 1 in the “premiership quarter” lead mainly by Stuart Wilsons drive out of the middle and big Will Guine’s tap work around the ground.   (13.10-88 to 7.4-46).  The last quarter was pretty even and St Bedes wrestled back some pride, we ran out winners by 36 points, we felt that we should have won by more because we missed some simple shots at goal but very good platform built for the rest of the season.  16.15-111 to 11.9-75
