The guys saw the first autmnal pitch of the season today - long grass, twigs and leaves all over the place. It was certainly to our liking however as it was massive!
A load of injury pull outs - get well soons go to Joe Gempton, Joe Parsons and Louie - could have disrupted the side but with Alex pulling the strings in midfield, supported by the back 5 of Nathan, JoeN, Jacob, JJ and Zac we soon established superiority of posession.
Soon that posession yielded the goals we deserved. Two slide rule passes put Cam in the clear and he was able to finsh well - 2-0. Straight after the break Lucas was able to run into the wide open spaces and score twice (the second was a searing finish) - annoyingly though we conceded two bad goals at 3-0 to put the result fleetingly in doubt. Felix, Max & Jayden were able to help Alex and Archie run the game though and we were then able to put the game to bed by puttting Cam in twice more before Archie got a well deserved goal.
It wasnt a day for sparkling footy - it was a day for getting the job done and proving we are a worthy Div 1 side. The last 3 performances have proven that beyond doubt.
Man of the match was well contested - the so consistent Nathan, the lethal Cam, the rock steady JoeN - however Zac takes the award due to his commitment, fitness and zest for the battle.
