Finally the wait is over! After the numerous training sessions, practice games, and young demons day we made it. Tooradin-Dalmore under 8s got to play their first footy match over 4 quarters. We played against Beaconsfield Gold at Rutter Park. Coach Dave was very pleased at how quickly the young gulls come together as a team and put together a very solid four quarter effort.
Exciting passages of play combining running, marking and passing amongst each other being the highlights in what was a very entertaining game of football. Beaconsfield themselves had their share of the ball and played very well. The sportsmanship from both sides was first class as both teams tried their hardest for the whole four quarters. Goals: Tanner 3, Thomas 2, Mateo 2, Bailey, Spencer, Harry
The young gulls won in the end.

What a way to start the morning with the last post played, all teams lined up and paid their respect to the ANZACs.
This must have motivated the boys as they were up and about early on. Putting in the pressure where needed and kicking a goal, (great job Koby McCleod) into the wind in the first quarter to Cranbourne 2 goals 1point.
With the wind at our back in the second quarter we were able to keep Cranbourne scoreless and put on 2 goals (great job Blake Howlett) and 1 point down our end.
In the second half they continued their pressure and although we didn’t score the boys didn’t drop their heads. Cranbourne put 3 goals 4 on the board in the third quarter.
Last quarter rolled around, and we knew it was our time to put the foot down. With the boys all getting amongst it we were able to put on another goal (Great Job Java Lauterboom) and 6 points and keep Cranbourne scoreless again to come away with the win by 2 points!

Tooradin Dalmore Under 12’s girls team went down to a strong Beaconsfield on Friday night for their inaugural game of footy.
The scoreboard does not always tell the story as the Tooradin girls fought tenaciously against an opposition that was too big and too fast.
Well played to all the Tooradin girls. Go Shegulls!

It was great to see our under 14’s pay their respects to our Anzacs today. Watching the team stand shoulder to shoulder while the last post played was a proud moment.
