2015 – O50s & O45s: Round 3 v Beaconsfield
A big day for the 50’s boys last Sunday. Beaconsfield at their home ground is never easy but the 19 blokes that fronted put up a very good performance.
Our major failing was the inability to convert forward 50’s into scores. We had a lot of the ball in general play and the 3rd quarter was very pleasing with the amount of support running, shepherding and talking. We can still be better with our general foot passing and teams like Beaconsfield set the standard – they rarely miss a target and always put the ball to their teammates advantage.
That said, our form is good and we should look forward to Essendon in a couple of weeks at home for a win. Better players were Hedge, Possum, Harpo, Joffa, Macca, Rusty.
We then “doubled up” to play the Beacy 45’s and as there were zero 45’s players there it was a big ask. Beacy helped out with 3 or 4 players and we actually won the 1st quarter. That was where it stopped as Beacy ran over the top of us (to be expected).
This was a massive effort by our blokes and I am especially proud of the effort and the willingness to play. I reckon I speak for everyone at the club when I say well done – our effort was very much appreciated by the Beaconsfield club as well.
Better players were all of us that took the field.
