Very disappointing result for the club last weekend against Wantirna South away.1st XVIII stumbled out of the blocks and never really got going Jayden Hoegel booted 3 to be our major goal kicker with Whitchell, Toohey, J. Hoegel, James McCubbin, Glossop and Murray all named in the best. 2nd XVIII Have really hit a flat spot for the second week in a row going down to a side placed lower on the ladder. With no multiple goal kickers Keedle, Taylor, Menzies, Haralambopoulos, Story and Sciortino all named in the best. NEXT WEEK is the split round so we NO game next Saturday lets re group and re foucs before we play Wavelry Blues at the MCG of The Saturday 15th July.
The Cocktail Ball however was a roaring success at the budgie smuggler with the girls dressing it up and the boys not to bad either WELL DONE to Michelle Lucas for another great ball

Reserves Coaches Report
Travelling to Wantirna Sth is always a tough ask unfortunately we couldn't quite get the points this week. I couldn't question the boys effort or endeavour they had a real crack all day however we just couldn't finish our work off up forward as we had more inside 50's than them for the game, 14-3 in the 2nd qtr alone. In a low scoring game there was never more than 2-3 goals in it and that's why making the most of your opportunities is just so important. Our Mids and Ruck were terrific crashing in whilst our back 6 held up well, Tayles off half back with run and carry was super, Keed's ball use was also a highlight as it was good to see him run out a full game. A timely break this week will be great with a few to comeback next game, we must continue to persist and stick together as a group, thanks to all who came down to support us.

Senior Coaches Report
We travelled out to Wantirna Sth this week for another important game, a win would see us stay in touch with the top 4. We started slowly conceding the first 2 goals of the game and from there we never were really able to mount a serious challenge. In what was our most disappointing output of the season our disposal was deplorable with a number of unforced errors and poor decisions halting any momentum we were able to muster. We must regroup over the bye week and hit back hard next round. Lachlan Rudd and Jackson Glossop batted hard all day down back for us. Congratulations to Mick Barro who played his first senior game. Thanks to all our supporters who came along to cheer us on we really appreciate your support.
