Lyndhurt Blue 0.1-1 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 3.6-24

On a very windy afternoon for footy our boy’s and girl’s came to the game with one thing in mind, a win.

With everyone playing their roles it was a pleasure to watch all play with respect and courage in tough circumstances.

We had the ball in our hands for most of the game and goals were kicked by Lenny Goldberg, Bevan Bell and Kasy Deren.

In one the best games I have seen a junior play Kasy was inspirational to all and played like it was his last game. Maybe it had something to do with his dad turning up out of the blue after a massive couple of weeks but what an impact he had. Awesome effort Kasy!

We had standout players all over the park Curtis Watts, Bevan Bell, Kasy Deren, Lenny Goldberg, Jett Lowndes, Summah Boyd, Daniel Martin, and Sebastian Cooke. I could name them all but it was a fantastic win, to give us 2 on the trot.

We all need to turn up to training and really work hard we don’t have long to go now so let’s keep this momentum rolling on to next week.

So proud of all of you keep working hard and enjoy what we have left.

Under 12’s

Tooradin-Dalmore 3.2-20 vs Cora Lynn 3.4-22

On a typical winters day in Melbourne the under 12’s played host to Cora Lynn in the Round 9 clash. Cora Lynn came out and kicked the first and only major of the first quarter and our boys knew we were up for a challenge. With the wind going our way in the second we had the momentum and got on the board with our first goal kicked by Cooper Simpson. With our strong midfield and defence we managed to keep the cobras scoreless for the quarter and went into the half time break 2 points down. Our second half saw some awesome tackles and great tap outs with all the boys getting in and giving their all. Cora Lyn managed 2 goals to put them in front by 14 points. Going into the final quarter we once again stood strong and defended well against their runs forward to keep them to another scoreless quarter and with a couple of great snaps by Josh Iannantuono we were back in it only to be beaten by the clock and falling 2 points short.

Goal kickers were Josh Iannantuono with 2 and Cooper Simpson 1. Best players were Foti Ploudias, Daniel Taweel, Cooper Simpson, Jack Mannix, Hayden Stewart-Wells.

Narre South Lions 5.8-38 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 2.2-14

Tooradin U13’s took on ladder leader Narre Warren Sth Lions on Sunday at their home ground. A really fast start to the game saw the Seagulls hit the scoreboard early via Liam Simpson, who’s long range snap cleared the defenders and bounced through, followed by a strong roving goal from Charlie Shinners.

The game in the first half was played at a rapid pace and the Tooradin team tackled fiercely and was first to the ball. At the half time break the teams were evenly matched and the boys were well positioned to cause an upset.

The third qtr showed why the lions are top of the table as their fast ball movement and accuracy by foot, saw them kick clear and set up a handy 2 goals break.

The Tooradin team continued to fight right to the last minute and should take a lot of pride from their endeavour all game. The improvement in the past 3 weeks has been great to see.

Congratulations to Vasili Papas, Josh Shipton and Charlie Shinners who were recognised by the coaches for their efforts during the game.

Goals: Liam Simpson and Charlie Shinners

Tooradin-Dalmore 2.2-14 vs Berwick Blue 11.9-75

On Sunday, our Under 14’s took on Berwick Blue at home. We knew this game was going to be a hard one as we have played these boys before and they are a good team.

The boys came out running through 2 very important banners today as we had Brodie Simpson doing his 100 games and Eden Genoni and James Ryan doing there 50 games. Congratulations to all these boys, it’s a fantastic achievement.

We came out strong kicking the first goal of the quarter by Jed Ashurst which was fantastic made them all lift and we continued to play great football with strong tackles and amazing effort by all. Berwick came back and kicked a goal and we went in 2nd quarter only a few points down. Kicking another goal in 2nd quarter by Ben Sellings, and all the boys still showing lots of effort.

Half time and the 3rd and 4th quarter didn’t go our way although we still continued the effort it just wasn’t happening and we didn’t get the win we wanted. Boys be happy with yourselves and continue to show you want to be out there and the results will show.

Tooradin-Dalmore 10.12-72 vs Pakenham Blue 4.0-24

It was a cold, wet and windy start to the day. Our boys opened the flood gates and came out fighting like a storm. They played hard at the ball, despite the wet ground making the ball wet and hard to control. Their improvement in their skill levels has gone to great heights since the first round and they left the Pakenham Blue boys pointless in the first and 3rd quarter.

Tooradin played a game of skill and showed amazing teamwork and taking out the win to celebrate their teammates 50th game in style with a 10 goals 12 behinds game.

An absolute ripper of a game today with the team tasting success for the first time this year and enjoy it they did. The ball was in our forward half for 90% of the game and goals were kicked regularly with Summah Boyd bagging her first major. Every one of us played with intent and pressure for the whole game so proud of this team.

Under 12’s travelled to Tatterson Park to take on North Dandenong for the second time this season. With the opposition needing a few players our boys stepped up and donned the jersey for them to make a game out of it.  We started the game on fire kicking a whopping 5 goals straight to 1 point. We went on to kick 3 more in the second taking us to a 53 point lead into half time. By mixing up the players positions we let North Dandenong sneak up a bit with them adding 4 goals (with Jordan Bury snapping a quick one while playing for them!) to our 1 in the third. We came home strong with 5 goals 2 in the last to take home the win!

Berwick White 15.13-103 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 3.4-22

On Sunday, Tooradin Dalmore travelled to play Berwick White at Clyde Rd Reserve.

We had one of our best first quarters with a consistent effort from all the team. Our forward entries were driven by great work in the midfield and we hit the scoreboard through Tyler Kirkbride converting from in front. This form continued in the second term as we applied the principles of playing in front and constant forward pressure, resulting in goals to Jesse Craven and Panos Papas.

After half time we disappointingly went away from the things that had placed us in such a good position to possibly walk away with a win. The team kept fighting to get back in the match but Berwick were too strong in the end. We still need to find the 4 quarter effort that’s required to defeat Div 1 teams. We’ll take the week off and enjoy a break to refresh minds and bodies and hopefully come back ready and prepared for our next game.

Goals: Tyler Kirkbride 1, Jesse Craven 1, Panos Papas 1.

Under 14’s

Beaconsfield Gold 15.17-107 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 2.4-16

On Sunday, our Under 14’s took on Beaconsfield at their home ground. We were hoping for a win as we had Bailey Ray playing his 100th game.

The boys had a slow start letting Beaconsfield kick a quick 5 goals to our nothing. The boys continued to keep their heads up with a few great tackles but unfortunately they just didn’t play to their ability and had no talk on the field which definitely showed on the score board. Coach Paul Ray gave them a good speech at half time with them then coming out and kicking the 1st goal of 3rd quarter. Unfortunately this didn’t continue and it just wasn’t our day. Boys with determination and some team bonding it will start to show on the score board. Congratulations again to Bailey Ray playing his 100th game couldn’t get the win but he played a great game.

Best Players – Ben Sellings, Kyle Hernaut, Kye De Little and Ryley Watts.

Tooradin-Dalmore 6.4-40 vs Pakenham Blue 9.7-61

Tooradin U13’s hosted Pakenham Blue at Rutter Park on Sunday. The team had a solid training session during the week and had worked on areas of their game the coaches felt required improvement.

From the first bounce the team was committed to each contest and with fast ball movement and repeat inside 50’s, Tooradin took the lead into the qtr. time break.

Pakenham responded in the second quarter and although they outscored us, we competed well and the midfield continued to provide opportunities to the forwards.

The second half again was a close contest and our backline continued to play some of their best footy for the season. Whilst recent games have been tough, today showed the improvement that has been gained from playing quality opposition.

Players have been given differing roles this season and it was positive to see players like Anthony Mirauta taking strong marks all around the ground, Panos Papas laying tackles in defence and across the forward line and Josh Shipton taking to his role in defence to a new level.

Goals: Brodie Matthews 2, Anthony Mirauta 2, Tait Missen 1, Panos Papas 1.

Tooradin U13’s were away to Beaconsfield Gold on Sunday, in what was expected to be a tough assignment.

The team started well with some quick clearances and opportunities to score early in the first term. Beaconsfield skipped away to an early lead but we managed to draw a goal back courtesy of Jessie Ginger who converted from directly in front after taking a strong mark.

At the half time break we were down on the scoreboard but our intent was strong.

The second half challenged the teams resolve to continue to chase a very skillfull opposition, who’s ball movement through the middle gave them numerous inside 50’s.

The Tooradin backline worked tirelessly all match and the midfield ran, tackled and put their bodies on the line for their teammates. When the opportunity presented itself the forwards had to work hard to hit the scoreboard against a quality Beaconsfield backline.

The end result was a victory to Beaconsfield but valuable lessons can be taken away from the contest. We look forward to next week’s challenge.

Tooradin-Dalmore 3.4-22 Vs Koo Wee Rup 7.5-47

This week our under 12’s took on Koo Wee Rup at home. On a beautiful sunny afternoon at Rutter Park we had some amazing achievements with 4 of our players celebrating their 50 game milestone. Congratulations to Foti Ploudias, Mason Dicks, Hunter Cairns and Jesse Sumner.

We got away to a fast start kicking 3 goals to 0 but unfortunately the boys fell asleep and struggled to impact on the scoreboard after quarter time. The boys have shown they are good enough to mix it with the best of them but need to believe in themselves and back their abilities and not leave it to the few ones who consistently perform week in week out. Thanks to Jack Mannix for helping us out. Goal kickers with 1 goal each were Hunter Cairns, Brodie Alsemgeest and Foti Ploudias.

Best players were Merrick Stewart-Wells, Cooper Simpson, Jordan Bury, Aaron Knight, Hunter Cairns and Ashtyn Paku

Bit of hard work on the training track to turn it into a 4 quarter performance and we will show everyone what we are capable of.

Cranbourne Blue 3.2-20 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 20.7-127 

Tooradin U13’s travelled to Camms Reserve on Sunday to take on Cranbourne after the bye last week.

The match provided great competition and the boys were challenged all game. Our starts have improved this year and we held a handy 4 goal lead at the end of the first quarter.

During the second and third terms the team started to bring each other into the contest with chains of handballs, strong tackling and a great intensity at the ball.

The last quarter was a great display from all the boys, with goals to some new players and we eventually ran out winners.

Congratulations to Brodie Campbell, Anthony Miruata, Cooper Bassett, Jordyn Boyd and Josh Shipton who all received awards.

Tooradin-Dalmore 1.1-7 vs Lyndhurst 19.10-124

On Sunday our under 14’s took on Koo Wee Rup at home. We knew this was going to be a hard game with Koo Wee Rup being a very strong team.

Although the score didn’t reflect the game the boys played well as a team, strong tackles and some really great passages of play. Jayden Govaars kicking our only goal for the game. Coach Paul Ray was happy with the boys’ effort and had some positive words at the end of the game although we didn’t get the win.  If all train well and play like they want to be out there, then the win will eventually come for us and that’s what the boys need to keep in the back on their mind.

Best Players: Ben Sellings, Eden Genoni, Bailey Ray, Kye De Little and Brodie Simpson.

Goals: Jayden Govaars

We ventured down to Pakenham on Sunday to take on the boys of Pakenham Blue.

Unfortunately we only fielded 17 players; however the boys still managed to put in a good strong performance and come away with a strong win.

Without an interchange bench they still managed to play strong footy right to the final siren, an amazing effort. It was a good strong all round performance by the Tooradin boys. They worked amazingly well as a team and everyone played a great role in sealing our second win.

Some amazing kicking skills from our forwards with Max Kendell being our highest goal scorer, followed by some great kicking by Luke Townsend, between them kicking 9 goals of our 12.

Our goal kickers with an amazing 6 goals by Max Kendell, 3 goals Luke Townsend and 1 goal each to Cian O’Riordan, Jack Jenkins and Matthew Birnie. Keep up the great work. Go Seagulls.

Tooradin-Dalmore 4.5-29 vs Lyndhurst 11.19-85

Today the under 14’s took on Lyndhurst at home the sun was shining and we were hoping to get a win on the board. Unfortunately this wasn’t going to happen. We came out with Bailey Ray getting the 1st goal on the board. The boys played a good 1st quarter and then let themselves go for the rest of the game letting Lyndhurst run free and couldn’t catch them they were quick but our boys just couldn’t chase or nail strong tackles. It’s disappointing for them as they are a better team than this so a few hard training sessions this week to hopefully get a win next week and get the boys confidence back up.

Goal Kickers – Bailey Ray 2 and Tyler Evans 2

Best players – Charlie Hobson, Charlie Ogier, Brock Marshal, Bailey Ray and Kye De Little.

Tooradin-Dalmore 18.5-113 vs Narre North Foxes Grey 2.0-12

Tooradin U13’s took on Narre North Foxes at Rutter Park in the late game of the day. After last week was played in wet and windy conditions, today was perfect weather for footy.

The first quarter was a tight contest and it took a dominant performance from Anthony Mirauta in front of goal, to ensure we took a strong lead into quarter time.

The Tooradin midfield was able to take control of the centre clearances early and the teams trademark of using teammates and defensive pressure at both ends, ensured that we stayed on top at half time.

The second half gave the coaches an opportunity to move players around, which resulted in everyone being able to play their part whether in the ruck or at fullback and it was pleasing to see the even spread of goal kickers by the end of the game.

There has been terrific growth by the team in the past 12 months and we look forward to seeing where the season takes them.

Goals: Anthony Mirauta 5, Panos Papas 4, Liam Simpson 3, Tylor Dalgleish 2, Brodie Matthews 2, Matthew Ward 1, Bailey Wear 1.
