2nd Semi Final Match Report

The under 17s were out first and it was great to see that all players contributed to their impressive win over South Gawler.

The team was ably led by Jack Madgen, Brent O’Driscoll and Josh Osborne. In the very difficult conditions, there was no doubting the lads’ determination and competitive spirit which was a big factor in the result. Just one more match now for this group, who will contest the Grand Final for the first time in 15 years. Congratulations to all those who are involved and good luck for the big one!

The A grade took to the ground in what proved to be deteriorating conditions. Within minutes of the first ‘bounce’ all the players were covered in mud and it was impossible to distinguish between the two teams. In the second quarter the fog rolled in blanketing the oval making it impossible to see across the ground creating very surreal conditions. Gale force wind at half time blew away the fog but brought driving rain as both sides could do no more than push the ball forward then back from one wrestle to another.

The whole team never gave up all day with every contest hard fought. The conditions ensured that the ball could not be kicked more than twenty metres at a time.

In the end the game went down to an agonising tussle with the lads unable to break through.

Best on the day included Michael Taylor, Adam Spencer, Matt Stelzer, Aaron McAlpine, Ross Christie and Ashley Amber.

Congratulation also to Ashley for his 100 game with the Club.

The players were unanimous in agreeing that the conditions were the worst that they had ever played in, including those who had played when it was snowing. That said, the Club wishes to congratulate Angaston Football Club in doing a great job on what was an extraordinarily miserable day.

The team will spend this week regrouping for their game against Gawler Central.

This should be a hard fought contest with the lads determined to rebound.

All supporters are encouraged to come along and encourage the lads.
