Under 11’s

Cranbourne Gold 3.8-26 vs Tooradin-Dalmore 2.3-15

What a game we witnessed by our Under 11’s. Each and every child put in effort after effort only to fall just short. We had a number of kids playing their best games for the season with Cooper Pasnin, Brodi Armstrong, Riley Fengler, Kade Howes, Kasy Deren, Ben Brown, Tommy Rudeforth and a young Tom Sherer all with fantastic games.

Riley kicked 2 goals and Tom unlucky with 2 hitting the post.

We now only have 2 games left and with no footy this weekend it’s time to refresh and come back firing for the remainder of the season. Great effort by all.

Under 12’s

Tooradin-Dalmore 3.7-25 vs Koo Wee Rup 5.4-34

On Sunday the under 12’s hosted local town rivals Koo Wee Rup at Rutter Park. With Koo Wee sitting on top of the ladder the boys knew they had to play their hardest to give us a chance against them. In a slow start for the Seagulls, we only managed a behind in the first quarter with Koo Wee putting 2 goals 1 on the board. In a tight and hard fought second quarter both sides kicked a goal with Tooradin adding 9 points to our score to go into half time 9 points down.

With Koo Wee applying pressure in the third quarter our boys played some great footy and our defence showed them what we can do, blocking their attempts and giving them few opportunities to score. They did however add 1 goal 3 to their tally and we went into 3/4 time 18 points down. With our spirits up the boys went out and fired off early with determination and great team work to kick 2 goals 3 to their 1 with Tooradin only being 2 points down at one stage throughout the final quarter.

We went out and gave it our best but unfortunately were down by 9 points at the final siren. A credit to our boys who played the game in great team spirit and big thanks to the under 11’s players that came and helped us out today!

Goal Kickers were Aaron Knight 2 and Foti Plodious 1.Best players were Aaron Knight, Jack Mannix, Cooper Simpson, Hunter Cairns and Jordan Bury.

Awards winners Hayden Stewart-Wells, Cody Ray, Bevan Bell, Cooper Simpson, Jack Mannix, Mason Dicks, Aaron Knight, Riley Fengler, Hunter Cairns and Matthew Huxtable.

Under 13’s

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.

Under 14’s

Tooradin-Dalmore 2.4-16 vs Koo Wee Rup 14.12-96

Under 14’s took on Koo Wee Rup on Sunday, a beautiful sunny winter’s day.

The boys showed that they have determination, effort and most of all that they enjoyed playing football together. We may not have come away with a win, but all we want is the boys to play like this each week and show the effort the strong tackles and team talk./ That’s a win for us.

Goal kickers: Jayden Tatnell and Liam Simpson both kicked a goal and all boys showed a great team effort.

Best Players- Tadhg O’Riordan, Ryley Watts, Kye De Little, Kyle Hermaut and Bailey Ray

Under 17’s

Tooradin-Dalmore 13.14-92 vs Berwick Blue 3.2-20

What an amazing day with the sun shining down at Rutter Park Memorial Reserve, and what a show our boys from Tooradin put on.

It was a spirited win by our under 17’s with second spot up for grabs.

Just when Berwick Blue thought they could have their way, we put a stop to it right there and then kicking 5 goals in the first quarter to Berwick only kicking a behind, which set the standard for the game. It was a brilliant effort by Matthew Birnie kicking all our 5 goals in the first quarter.

Berwick never even looked like they were in it, as we ran right over the top of them right to the end with an amazing team effort.

Matthew Birnie ended the game with 7 goals, Joseph Spano on 2 goals, Cian O’Riordan, Robert Loudon, Max Kendell and Jack Jenkins kicking 1 goal each.

Our best players for the day where Matthew Birnie, Benjamin Peters, Joey Spano and Cian O’Riordan.

However it was a great effort put in by all 19 of our boys. Bring on the finals can’t wait. GO THE SEAGULLS.
