Narre North             5          5          35

The under 8s took on Narre North Foxes at Rutter Park on Sunday and what an entertaining game of football we witnessed. Both teams moved the ball around the ground at a very high standard which kept the crowd entertained.

Narre North got the momentum early and held onto a comfortable lead for the entire first half. The game had skill, speed, teamwork and physical contests with both teams going hard at the ball.

The second half saw the young gulls get into their rhythm and with much better use of handball started to gain the advantage. The third quarter saw the game played in our forward zone for the majority of the quarter- with some clever play from our forwards we managed to sneak in front at the last break. The young gulls eager as ever wanted to finish the game on a high note- they did this and managed to hang on for a very close two-point victory.

The young gulls never gave up and kept playing right up until the final siren. Excellent team effort

Our Under 9’s had put up a fight on Sunday against Officer white who came out firing with 4 straight goals in the first quarter, which left the boys determined to get a score on the board & that’s exactly what they did. Our last quarter was epic to watch as we had some awesome play with Taj McLeod taking out some spectacular marks and converting them to 3 goals.

Goal scores: Taj McLeod 3, Nate Wilson 1

Narre South Lions Navy   2    1    13

On Sunday the boys found a team that was matching them all over the ground. With only 1 Point scored in the first quarter, the boys had to dig deep to get a shot at goals.

With the footy going back and forth all day, every player had a good go at getting a touch. Tooradin were able to kick a couple of goals in the second quarter to open a small lead into half time. Third quarter was an even hit out again with both sides kicking 1.1. In the last it was all Tooradin, with a slight breeze the boys kicked away to cement another win.
Great job today boys let’s hope we continue to get challenged like today.

Best – Brax Lowndes, Tate Jagoe, Lachie Giles
Goals – Koby McLeod 2, Chad Stevens 1, Brodie Trounson 1, Tate Jagoe 1.

Thank you to Taj McLeod, Nate Wilson and Oakley Michie for playing up from the under 9’s

Beaconsfield Blue      8          10        58

 

On Sunday Tooradin Under 11’s were up against Beaconsfield. What a beautiful day to showcase our football in front of a home crowd. with a bit of a slow start from our boys and kicking into the wind we struggled to get the breakthrough we needed. Our defence end showed great resilience and had a couple of standout performances from our defence who are getting stronger and showing their developing skills each game. To our boys’ credit, the second half was our half. they played together as a team and moved the ball well keeping Beaconsfield scoreless in the last quarter and putting a solid effort in in our attacking end.

Thanks to all the families who stayed and supported our boys at home.

Goals – Blake Howlett – 3

Awards – Thomas Cockerill, Sebastian Condotta, Darcy Waight

What a great game to celebrate Mother’s Day, it was worth skipping breakfast in bed to watch these champs in action today. Today saw some tough boys a couple injuries some quick interchanges and they were straight back out. Well done Ryken, Will and Declan for heading back out on the field. Again, the boys talent was fantastic to watch today, they were well matched for the first half but the boys skill and fitness got them over the line. Special mention to Connor who dominated the back line today, well done mate. Great team effort today Seagulls.

Bests: Connor Leopold, Cooper Webb, Tyler Sullivan, Tom Sherer, Will Murray

Goals: 3 Tom Sherer, 2 Jack Alexander, Noah Baker, Noah Langham, 1 Tom Ryan, Dylan Kraskov

Tooradin Girls played above and beyond on Sunday, super proud of every one of them.

In perfect conditions against Berwick Springs, a much-improved Tooradin girls U12 dominated play and controlled the game. They took a well-earned lead into the half time break and although the game became a little scrappy after half time, they rose above it all and did themselves proud and are a credit to themselves, their families and our club.

Goals – Kirra Johnson, Annie Holloway, Tayah Rogers
