Waubra waffle, week ending 12th September


Last week end the club was busy with the Junior Presentation Night on Friday, two netball teams playing on Saturday and two footy sides on Sunday.

The Junior Presentation Night had a huge turn up with approximately 170 people attending, we hope you all enjoyed the night.  Once again congratulations to every player who received a trophy that represented Waubra this year and well done to our award winners with Dylan Hinchliffe winning the B & F from Runner Up in Samuel Cashin.  Leading Goal Kicker Jaden Hande, Most Improved Jimmy Muller and Coaches Award Jayden Severino.  The Junior Clubman Shield was awarded to Mitch Harrison.

The conditions were great on Saturday with C grades girls getting off to a good start in the first quarter against Hepburn and were able to hold their lead for the remainder of the match. The B grade girls had a tough start against Learmonth, neither side could get ahead. As the game progressed Waubra was able to get on top and hold on to win the match. Both C and B will play Springbank this weekend, with the C grade game kicking off at 12:30 and the B grade game following.

The reserves got off to a good start against Springbank last weekend, but they came back at us in the second quarter. The boys then settled in and had a good win over Springbank. This weekend they face Bungaree and are planning to make it back to back premierships, the midday show kicks off at 12:30.

Last week the senior boys came up against Springbank, who got off to cracking start, with accurate kicking they had an impressive lead on us at quarter time. Our guys were able to slow the scoring, but were unable to make up the deficit.

Come along and support the netball and football team who have made it through to the grand final and to celebrate the successful season that the club has had.
