Airport West 3.2-20 def by Hadfield 21.10-136

The boys were up against a bigger side that was more skilful and faster around the ground.  Hadfield had played in Division 1 and was relegated to Division 2 this year.  It was going to be a good test of where we were at.  We began the game well scoring a goal through some strong midfield work in the opening minute.  From that point, Hadfield hit their straps to pile on unanwswered goals.  The positives for our team were that the boys continued to chase down players, apply pressure and attack the ball.  Inside 50s improved  in the last quarter  as we kept the opposition to one goal, whilst hitting the scoreboard ourselves.  A lot of lessons learned with more learning to come.  We can only improve from here.

Goal scorers:  Ethan McShanag, Jack Deoki and Aaron Neumeister

We are at home next week against Roxburgh Park.  Aaron Neumeister will play his 50th game.
