Round 7 saw us host Caulfield at home. Coming off a strong result the week prior we knew they would want to come out hard for a victory. 

In the first quarter it was a tight affair as both sides traded quick goals from fast ball-movement.  The second quarter saw more of the same as we regained momentum late in the term through our mids lifting their work rate and hitting the scoreboard. 

The start of the third quarter saw Harry laidlaw join the ever-expanding injury list when he dislocated his finger within the first two minutes. This left us a midfield rotation short but didn’t stop us. We kicked five goals to two in the third quarter to be leading by 15 going into the last quarter. 

The final quarter saw Caulfield's better players stand up and take a hold of the game. In a reverse of the third term we kicked two goals to Caulfield's five. Although we battled hard all day Caulfield just got over the top of us by eight points. 

All in all a tough loss to take after being in control, but we move on and ready ourselves for Trinity next week.
