Waubra waffle, week ending 18th July

Today we travel to Skipton in wintery conditions which again see all teams facing tough football and netball games in all grades.

Last week we had our past players, sponsors and supporters day which was a great success. It was fantastic to see so many sponsors, past players and supporters attend what was a great day. Thanks to Marie Loader and the ladies in the canteen for all of your hard work in preparing two meals in the one day as well as normal canteen duties. Thanks also to Gerard Fitzgerald for a very inspiring speech and an insight into successful teams.

On the football field our under 12, 14 & 17 boys came up against very strong Buninyong teams and although trying extremely hard were outclassed in difficult conditions. All teams gave all they had and it was a fantastic effort by all boys. In the reserves game our boys had a strong win which was setup with a very strong opening term whilst our seniors played in a very entertaining game which saw both teams come away with two points.

It was nice for the junior netball teams to have some sunshine to play in this week! The 13B and 13A girls faced strong Buninyong teams and were unable to get up for a win, but the girls played well, in particular Julia Cocksedge, Zalia Clark and Charlie Williams. The U15 had a great team effort and got up by 11 goals. The U17 girls played a great game against a much higher ranked opposition, only going down by 7 goals, with Rachel Crook best on. The C grade girls got out to a great start and were able to hold on and build on their lead, recording a strong win, which was due to a great team effort. The B grade girls had a good win with Eliza Clark best on. The A grade also had a stong win, with Olivia Cameron strong in the attacking end.

We are now down to the last 6 games of the year so let’s get behind all teams and support each other as much as possible for the remainder of the year.

Our next home game is against BUNGAREE which will be played on SUNDAY 27th July which will coincide with our family day. Our family day is a chance for all of our Waubra families and friends to get together and enjoy a day out at the footy. There will be a jumping castle and face painting for the kids while we will also have a football game at half time of the senior football for kids aged between 5 and 8 years old. If you are interested in having your child play please contact Robbie Gordon on 0400 693 841.
