Sticking with traditions, last round we came up against Edi Asp on another wet and miserable day. The A grade girls got off to a good start against the reigning premiers, however with a few players down this week, Edi proved to be too strong and ran away with the game in the end. Well done to our girls for continuing to fight until the end in very trying conditions.
The B grade girls had a thrilling win and now sitting on the top of the ladder. The first 3/4s were everything we could have asked for with a hunger for the ball and a strong defensive game. The foot came off the accelerator in the final quarter and we took time to adjust to the weather and the changes made by Edi. Best on goes to Ash with fantastic shooting accuracy, brilliant driving and amazing defensive arms.
The C grade girls had an amazing win with pressure applied over the ball relentless for 4 quarters. The reset and our patience feeding the ball in paid off and our mid court worked their butts off creating plenty of turnovers. BOC goes to Jamie for a super effort running a full game in centre and smashing it.
D grade game had an amazing second half, however we were unable to make up the ground that was lost in the first half. We adjusted for the wind a little too much with the shooting and the accuracy wasn't as high as previous weeks but our defensive pressure all the way down the court to cause turnover after turnover was a real positive for the game. BOC goes to Abbey for ripping it apart in centre.

The boys headed off to Edi Asp ready for a tough encounter. Given Edi Asp had lost only one game the week before to Mornington, the lads were on guard for a fired up opponent and got just that.
The game was tense early and although against a stiff breeze We should’ve been 5 goals with Edi Asp kicking a late goal.
The 2nd quarter saw us gain control the middle in a very busy game with Berenger and Gregory destructive; Josh with his pace and dare and Cal with his uncanny ability to release us from stoppages. Angus Wright and Dos Raphael are playing together like the Dynamic Duo with Dos likely to go for the red tights!!!
With four players off at Groovin the Moo opportunities were there and taken. Caleb Douglas found more of the footy and some different rotations are lifting our depth around The Pulse.
Streety and a worthy opponent with about 3 mates and his four was probably better than his7 goals against Mt Eliza. The forward line was heavily guarded by EdiAsp and we must learn to vary our final approach when inside 50 to get maximum impact when confronted with frustrating tactics.
A bit messy in the last when we had the chance to bat them by 100 points. Kicking 4.7 is never OK!
Best team effort this year. Plenty of uncompromising footy laced with will to support each other play to play. Must be the hallmark when the year gets tougher and it will soon.
