Some amazing kicking, precise marking and some great talking between players. These kids worked very hard to get in the lead. They were challenged well in the 3rd quarter, and worked even harder in the final quarter to close the gap kicking some amazing goals. Cranbourne Blue taking out the win by a tiny 3 points. Congratulations to Brock on not only your first goal, but then kicking another 3 right after!
Well done team, a very strong game!

Under 14’s Cranbourne Blue vs Tooradin-Dalmore

Cranbourne Blue  8  4 52
Tooradin-Dalmore 8 11 59

Tooradin Dalmore travelled to Camms Rd Reserve to take on Cranbourne Blue.
Having not played Cranbourne before it was hard to know what to expect. The first quarter saw Tooradin score quickly from centre clearances. Panos Papas was lively in the forward line and proved accurate in front of goal, giving us a handy lead. Cranbourne applied plenty of pressure around the contest and was able to score against the wind and the run of play.

The second term saw Cranbourne start to assert itself in the middle and were able to get on top of the Tooradin midfield. This resulted in some quick scoring and the margin quickly reduced to 16 points.

With a challenge from the coach at half time to lift their work rate around the ball, the mids started to win the footy in the packs and combining with our wings started to provide the Tooradin forwards more opportunities. Panos Papas continued his straight kicking and along with Brodie Campbell & Jai Williams extended our lead.

The final quarter saw Cranbourne kicking with the wind and when their midfield started to win clearances, they kicked 3 quick goals to draw within one point. With only two minutes remaining Tooradin’s midfield won a crucial centre clearance, drove the ball into our forward line and Brodie Campbell finished a best on ground performance by winning a disputed ball and calmly going back and kicking the winning goal.

A great effort by the team under intense pressure from the opposition all day.

Goals: Panos Papas 4, Brodie Campbell 3, Jai Williams 1.
