Congratulations to all teams competing in the first week of finals. All up we have 2 football teams and 3 netball teams competing which is a fantastic effort.
Last week we saw the end of the home and away season and on that note I want to thank all of our football and netball coaches and volunteers for a wonderful year. Without your help the club simply does not exist!
Last week our under 12 boys again put in a great display against Daylesford and really had a red hot go like they have all year. The boys have shown some great improvement over the past 12 months and we look forward to seeing them again next year.
Our under 14.5 boys had another win which was the 6th for the year which considering last year was the first year back after an 8 year hiatus it is a fantastic achievement and a great reflection on the hard work that Tige & Caryn Severino and our junior coaches have done.
Our under 17.5 boys had another tough game and were again undermanned and unfortunately went down to a strong Daylesford team. I really thank the under 17.5 players, coaches, volunteers and supporters for your hard work in getting through a tough season. Although results did not show there were some very positive signs.
Our reserves footballers had a strong win against Daylesford and played some good football. Good luck over the finals series.
Our senior footballers came up against a strong Daylesford team and were outplayed by a better team. We will need to regroup for a big game against Bungaree today.
The junior netball started well with the U13 girls having a strong win, this was followed by a triller in the U15’s, who got up by one goal. The U17 girls played well but went down by 5 goals. This is the end of the season for the junior girls, we hope they enjoyed a successful season. The senior netball teams all had strong wins. The girls from Daylesford were fun to play against and enjoyed their last game for the season. Today the A grade will take on Hepburn, B grade have Springbank and C grade will match up with Bungaree, a few of these games didn’t go our way during the season, so we will be keen to play well and have next weekend off!
