Waubra waffle, week ending 1st August

Today we come up against Carngham Linton in what is again sure to be a very competitive day of football and netball. We are now down to the last 3 games of the year so I’m sure all games will be very hardly fought from both teams.

Last week we had our Family Day at Waubra against Bungaree which saw a big crowd attend. This was a tremendous success with many families attending and having a great time. Thanks must go to Tige & Caryn Severino, Robbie Gordon, Cindy Clark, Marie Loader, Ebony Corden and Carmen McTigue for their efforts in organising such a great event. It was great to see so many kids involved in the grid match at half time, we hope to see more of these young players in the future at our club.

On the football front our under 12’s put in a fantastic effort against Bungaree and had a real crack which was terrific to see while our under 14 boys registered their 4th win of the year which is a fantastic effort considering this is only the second season that the under 14’s have been playing since an 8 year spell. Our under 17’s came up against an extremely strong Bungaree team and were outmanned but they continuously tried extremely hard all day. Our reserves boys put in a great effort against Bungaree however they went down by 8 points in a terrific match. In the senior game Bungaree showed why they are the premiership favourites after they ran over our senior boys in the last half of the senior games.

The netball was always going to be tough and the junior teams played well against a strong opposition, but were unable to record a win. The C grade clash was 1st V 2nd Waubra had a slow start and were pulling their lead back in the second half, but ran out of time, going down by 4 goals. The A and B teams played well and demonstrated their strength, recording good wins.
