Waubra waffle, week ending 25th July

This week we welcome Bungaree to our first “Family Day” where we will celebrate the important part that families play in community sport. There will be a jumping castle, face painting and a kids football game for 5-8 year olds at half time of the senior football game. If any children (Waubra or Bungaree) want to play please speak with Robbie Gordon, Tige Severino or myself ASAP. A big thanks must go to Darren Rix, the Bungaree Committee, members, players and supporters for allowing us to have this day on a Sunday. On the football and netball front we are expected to see some fantastic games with numerous first vs second combinations in both football and netball.

Last week we travelled to Skipton for what were good conditions for football and netball. Our under 12 footballers again battled hard and played very well while our under 14’s had a fantastic day and came away with another great win. Our under 17’s had high hopes going into Saturday’s game however a few mistakes in the second quarter cost our boys and in the end we fell short. Keep your heads up boys and hopefully a win isn’t too far around the corner. Our reserves (who were undermanned) played very well and recorded a really good win. Our senior boys also had a good result and played well as a team.

The A grade girls though they would have a tough side to contend with last week and they weren’t disappointed by the fight Skipton put up. It was a high scoring game, with Waubra scoring 56 goals, getting up by 2 goals. The A and B grades had good wins and are both sitting on top of their ladders, but the girls will have to bring their best games against Bungaree to get another win this weekend. The U17 girls had a great game which was extremely close, but unfortunately they went down by one goal. The U15’s were competitive, but went down to Skipton. The U13 girls have made great improvement over the year and had a good win. Thanks to our netball coaches for their work so far, we’re having a great year. Part of the success is due to the help volunteers around the club do week after week, we appreciate your contribution. Good luck to all teams today, we’ll need it!
