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.

Awards went to Oakley Bourke, Wil Studham, Aaron Knight, Brodie Alsemgeest, Josh Iannantuono, Foti Ploudias, Koby Peck, Jack Mannix, Lachlan Plant, Ashtyn Paku and Daniel Taweel.

Under 13’s

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

Under 14’s

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.

Goal kicker – Jed Ashurst and Ben Sellings

Best Players- Tyler Evans, Ryley Watts, Ben Sellings, Brock Marshall and Fergus Goldberg.

Under 17’s

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.

Congratulations to Austin Hernaut who celebrated his 50th game at Tooradin.

Well done to the Tooradin Seagulls flying high and proud.

Our goal kickers on 2 goals each Matthew Birnie and Cian O’Riordan.

One goal apiece to James Cross, Keith Piccardt-Corn, Robert Loudon, Benjamin Peters, Corey Potrich and Joseph Spano.
