Pakenham Blue 9.9-63 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 2.3-15
The final game of the 2018 season saw Tooradin Seagulls taking on Pakenham Blue.
With a howling cross breeze the toss was important and our game day captains, Brodie Matthews and Liam Simpson didn’t let us down.
Our first quarters haven’t produced many scores this season but with plenty of midfield clearances from Jesse Craven and Cooper Bassett we were able to attack early. Charlie Shinners provided great run off half back and combined with our wings to keep the ball in the Tooradin half of the ground. Even with the wind scoring was difficult and it took some smart play from Jai Williams to hit the scoreboard for the seagulls. Not to be outdone Jordan Boyd moved from half back to the forward line and was able to snap truly to give Tooradin a 2 goal lead at the end of the quarter.
Pakenham in the second term were full of run and their forwards were able to take advantage of their height and size and put on three unanswered goals. Our backline never dropped their heads and as they’ve done all season, kept the opposition from scoring on multiple occasions.
With 2 players injured and off for the remainder of the game and no bench, the teams was challenged in the second half. Multiple entries into our forward line didn’t produce any goals and against the wind Pakenham was able to score and setup a three quarter time lead that would prove difficult to overcome.
The last quarter was played in even colder & wet conditions than the start of the match but the team continued to fight till the final siren. Brodie Campbell and Tyler Kirkbride finished the season of with great performances, and both Brodie Matthews and Liam Simpson playing their 100th games fought tirelessly all day.
Goals Jai Williams 1, Jordan Boyd 1
The club is proud of the team and its efforts this season and we look forward to seeing them improve further next year.
Thanks to our coaches and support staff for helping guide the boys all season. And massive thank you to our families, getting the boys to training and games each week and their assistance on game days.
MATCH REPORTS WEEK 13 – SUNDAY 22 JULY 2018
Berwick Springs Blue 8.4-52 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 4.8-32
Tooradin travelled this week to Berwick Springs home ground to face the second on the ladder Titans.
With a strong wind pushing across the ground kicking with the wind in the first quarter would be an advantage. After winning the toss the midfield started well and sent the ball into attack on numerous occasions. Although we had the majority of the play it wasn’t until returning midfielder Jesse Craven took a mark directly in front that we registered our first goal.
The second quarter was all Berwick Springs and with the wind and quick accurate ball movement, we soon found ourselves 4 goals down at half time.
The second half was a tight contest. Tooradin midfielders Jesse Craven, Cooper Bassett and Brodie Campbell all started to get on top of their respective opponents. Our forwards continued to present up at the ball carrier and worked equally hard with their defensive pressure. Goals to Jesse Craven and a great mark and goal from Tait Missen kept the Seagulls in striking distance.
Tooradin’s backline was to be tested in the last term and to their credit they fought hard all quarter and limited the opportunities that the Titans had with the wind. With continued run from the midfield Tooradin drove the ball into its forward 50 against the wind. The forwards again applied great defensive pressure which resulted in a strong mark to Anthony Mirauta who goaled against the flow of play.
In the end Berwick Springs accuracy was the difference but Tooradin gave a strong account of themselves against quality opposition.
Goals Anthony Mirauta 2, Jesse Craven 2, Tait Missen 1.
MATCH REPORTS WEEK 12 – SUNDAY 15 JULY 2018
Beaconsfield Ble 6.9-45 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 4.9-33
On Sunday the U13 Seagulls travelled to Holm Park to play Beaconsfield Blue. After winning the toss and kicking with the wind we had the majority of the ball in our half for the quarter. We had 8 scoring shots but could only manage 2 goals. The second quarter saw our backline busy with Beaconsfield attacking from the centre clearances on multiple occasions. The backs were able to keep them to only 2 goals and at half time there was 1 point the difference.
Again the third quarter was a challenge for the team. Whilst we kicked two goals from our forward entries we let Beaconsfield score into the wind and set themselves up for the final term. The ¾ time margin proved too much to overcome and Beaconsfield kicked clear to win by 12 points.
Goals Anthony Mirauta 2, Joshua Shipton 1, Charlie Shinners 1.
MATCH REPORTS WEEK 11 – SUNDAY 01 JULY 2018
Endeavour Hills 6.5-41 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 3.5-23
The U13 boys travelled to Endeavour Hills on Sunday and having played two weeks of strong contested football, the expectation of further improvement was high. The first half saw Endeavour Hills switched on and through quick ball movement put on 2 early goals.
The Tooradin backline has grown greatly this season and again they worked well to restrict the oppositions scoring opportunities. Tooradin’s midfield started to get first use of the ball late in the half and goals from Anthony Mirauta and Tait Missen, saw the Seagulls with a small halftime lead.
The third quarter again was a struggle for the team and this is an area that requires more focus as the season progresses. Endeavour Hills had more numbers around the ball at stoppages and were able to capitalise on their forward 50 entries.
The last term was hard fought and when an early Endeavour Hills goal put them 3 goals up the challenge was ahead of the team. The midfield fought hard with multiple centre clearance wins and the backline worked to restrict any further scoring. A quick snap from Charlie Shinners reduced the margin but it wasn’t enough and Endeavour Hills ran out winners on the day.
Goals: Anthony Mirauta 1, Tait Missen 1, Charlie Shinners 1.

Tooradin-Dalmore 7.1-43 vs Beaconsfield Gold 7.6-48
Tooradin Dalmore U13’s hosted Beaconsfield Gold on Sunday at Rutter Park. When the teams last met the score line heavily favoured Beaconsfield and the team was keen to put on a much better showing.
Tooradin applied constant pressure from the opening bounce and the midfield quickly got on top of their opponents. The quarter was played at a very fast pace and both sides had multiple entries into their forward lines. Tooradin’s backline stood up to the challenge and the Beaconsfield forwards were under pressure whenever they took a shot at goal.
The second quarter saw the pressure kept up and the Tooradin midfield combined with the forwards to kick clear and take the lead into half time. Beaconsfield hit back in the third quarter with some quick goals but again the Tooradin attack on the ball was relentless and another 2 goals meant a one point game at three quarter time.
Beaconsfield continued to fight hard and didn’t take a backward step. Our backline was tested again late in the quarter when multiple entries by Beaconsfield added quick goals. To the teams credit they continued to fight and 3 fast goals saw the margin reduced to 5 points with only minutes to play. That was the final margin as the siren sounded just as Tooradin was about to make another forward entry.
The past two weeks have seen a terrific turnaround in form and confidence. Well done to the players awarded for their game day performance and to our U12 players who helped out during the game.
Goals Anthony Mirauta 2, Tait Missen 1, Bailey Wear 1, Aaron Knight 1, Cooper Simpson 1, Jai Willams 1.

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

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.
Match Reports Week 7 – Sunday 27 MAY 2018
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.
Best: Charlie Shinners, Panos Papas, Jordyn Boyd

Beaconsfield Gold 12.7-79 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 1.2-8
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.
Goals: Jessie Ginger – 1
Match Reports Week 5 – Sunday 13 MAY 2018
Tooradin today hosted Berwick Springs Blue at home on a sunny Mother’s Day.
Having been elevated to Division 1 the team was going to be challenged and Berwick Springs started well with some early goals. The commitment to playing in front and chasing hard was positive and presented numerous opportunities for scoring. Tooradin’s only goal of the day came late in the first quarter courtesy of Jesse Craven, who picked up a loose ball from the pack and sent a soaring torpedo straight through the goals.
The second and third quarters were played with similar intensity and we managed to keep the opposition within range coming into the last quarter. Whilst the opposition kicked away in the last quarter there were some positives to be taken out of the game. Well done to Tyler Kirkbride and Matt Ward who the coaches thought played strong games.
Goals: Jesse Craven 1

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.

Lyndhurst 0.0-0 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 6.11-47
Our season opener away to Lyndhurst was played in true footy conditions; wet, windy and with a muddy centre square. With 5 new faces and a new coach, the team was keen to put their preseason learnings into practice.
It was a solid contest from the first bounce with new and old players combining to score early and set the tone for the remainder of the match. Lyndhurst fought valiantly all game and the Tooradin players were constantly working hard to gain possession from the stoppages and in contested play.
Today’s performance was a true team effort and it was great to see the level of enjoyment the boys had in their first match back.
Goals: Anthony Mirauta 3, Vasili Papas 1, Charlie Shinners 1, Jesse Craven 1.
