Reserves Coaches Report
We did it!!! Just a great day for us as a group, to win meant everything to so many people at the club. Playing in conditions on the weekend was very different to what we have had to since the pre- season games back in March the boys were just terrific. Park Orchards came out hard and jumped us in the first 10 minutes to kick 2 goals, to our credit we settled and level the score going into quarter time. The second quarter we kicked away to lead through the term by 16 points however they kicked a goal on the siren to claw us back to 10 pts at the main break.
The 3rd quarter was pretty even really so we went into the final quarter with a goal lead. We kicked the first goal to but to their credit they got one back and we held the lead by 5 points, it was intense as they surged however our back 6 were fantastic to withhold their pressure and with 4-5 minutes to go we kicked 3 in a row to ice the game and win by 4 goals. Whitchy was super with 4 goals, Tayles was awarded the BOG medal with his run and carry from half back, our on ballers Beags, Bluey, Toddy and Morg’s once again were super, Jayke Murray showed his class with some great marks and work rate all day. Again we had so much even contribution across the ground which has been our theme all year. Looking back it was the Rd 6 win against Upper Gully that put us 3 and 3, since then we have won 16 in a row to claim the ultimate prize, just awesome from the boys, I couldn’t be prouder of them all.
Well done to Bluey who claimed the Comp B&F on Monday night, he had a stella year. Congratulations goes to the Senior group they were outstanding on Sunday, Division 2 awaits. I’d like to thank Winno for his year he has been a great addition to our club, to all the coaching staff I say thank you for all the support you’ve given the 2’s this year. We are all so grateful to Macca & Dane and all the committee members for their hard work, both results are so deserving for them. And to all the supporters who backed us all year, their support on Sunday was unbelievable, we all appreciate this so much. Finally to the Players and the Club for giving me an opportunity to Coach this year, it’s a privilege and a honour to work with an awesome bunch of people, Thank you.
