Round 6 Match Report – Under 9s
So proud of the boys this week. What a game! We travelled to Upwey Tecoma early on Sunday morning to play on the full ground. It was clear from the start this was going to be a tough contest. It was hard to get the ball loose and there was a lot of packs and tackling. Given the increase in ground size and the tough conditions, scoring was difficult. Our energy levels were certainly down in the first half, we lacked the intensity that we had brought to our footy in recent weeks. After a half time rev up, the boys began to click back into gear. Our disposal became quicker and our overall team spirit improved with plenty of encouragement coming from teammates. After being behind all day, Rocco eventually broke free and kicked an amazing running goal with great support from Ethan. It was fantastic to see the boys really digging deep and never giving up.
Tyler, Bae, Noah and Lochie did a great job in the ruck, the tap outs in the second half made a big difference. The work rate from our onballers was amazing. Tyson, Will, Nick, and Jackson ran all day and all over the ground. Brayden was particularly impressive, his hunger for the footy in the middle was great to watch. Johnny proved very versatile, providing a focus up forward and pushing back in defence. Our back men were solid in defence. Leighton, Zac, Tom, Ethan and Emanuel were put under significant pressure all day and were equal to the task. Ethan showed great courage to play on after a hard knock late in the game. Isacc showed great desperation by saving an almost certain goal which proved to be critical to the final result. Oliver seemed to be everywhere, he was in many of the pack situations and seemed to get the ball free under heavy pressure.
All boys have improved so much this season. I am extremely proud of their efforts. Can’t wait for our 8.00am game against Healesville!
