Tooradin-Dalmore 3.1-19 vs Nar Nar Goon 6.9-45

Today we hosted Nar Nar Goon at home at Rutter Park. With the rain drizzling down throughout the game our boys were ready for a wet hard contested match. With Nar Nar Goon scoring 5 points our defence played hard to stop them getting a goal in the first quarter. Opening our score tally was Foti Ploudias in the forward line and kicking the first goal for the Seagulls. Unfortunately they got away from us in the second and added 4 goals 2 to their score. The boys showed great determination with Koby Peck attacking the ball all game. Hunter Cairns and Jordan Bury running from end to end working hard with Cooper Simpson and Ashtyn Paku in and under frequently winning the ball from congested packs and breaking away propel the ball forward to their team mates. The third quarter saw Cooper Simpson kicking our second goal bursting through a pack to snap truly. With the weather turning nasty and our backs to the wall kicking into the wind the boys never gave up producing a 4 quarter team effort resulting in Jesse Sumner kicking our third goal for the game from a set shot.

Goals: Foti Ploudias, Cooper Simpson and Jesse Sumner with one a piece.

Awards this week went to Jesse Sumner, Jordan Bury, Josh Iannantuono, Aaron Knight, Cooper Simpson, Harry Hardy, Ashtyn Paku, Koby Peck and in his first game for the Gulls, Daniel Taweel. Special thanks to Bevan Bell and Lenny Goldberg for helping us out today.

Under 13’s

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

Under 14’s

Tooradin-Dalmore 3.1-19 vs Endeavour Hills 12.12-84

Our under 14’s today took on Endeavour Hills at home. The weather wasn’t the best but that’s what footy weather is – cold and wet!!

The boys came out with determination to get the win unfortunately we couldn’t get it, but the effort they all showed was a win to us. The boys showed that they wanted to play football – the hard tackles, talking on the field and encouraging each other is the coach wants from them. We may not get the wins each week but if the boys can play with love and passion it proves to everyone that we will get the win one day. Our 3rd quarter was our best game of footy by far keeping Endeavour Hills scoreless. We kicked 3 goals which were kicked by Tyler Evans, Ben Sellings and Ryley Watts. Sunday’s effort was amazing keep it up and the win will come.

Best Players- Ben Sellings, Bailey Ray, Tadhg O’Riordan, Tyler Evans and Kye De Little.
