Round 2 – Under 10 Division 6 Match Report

Airport West 4.2 – 26  def Burnside Heights  1.7 – 13

WE HAD A WIN !!!

Firstly a big ‘Thank you’ to all the parents and senior players who helped out at last week’s training sessions, your support and continued involvement is very much appreciated by Ben and myself.

On a beautiful sunny Sunday morning we played at home against Burnside Heights.  Our captain for the day was Adrian Galtieri whose birthday was the previous week. Happy Birthday Adrian !

It was a fairly strong breeze to start the game and Adrian proudly and calmly won the toss, allowing us to have the wind in the last quarter. Deon Uren again had a fantastic game not only in the ruck but also around the ground. Our on ballers Lachlan Hamilton, Cooper McMullin, Nikolas Ellul, Lachlan Ziros, J.J Veneziano, Liam Livingston and Darcy Broom ran all day with Lachlan Hamilton having some memorable runs and kicking 2 great goals for his efforts !

Our backline was solid all day with Connor Mundy, Ben Noakes, Harrison Rogers and Liam Sakora stopping Burnside from getting the ball within goal kicking range.  Liam later moved forward in the third quarter and kicked a vital goal for us.

Stefan Sabatino put his body on the line a few times for the team and earned a well deserved free kick after hitting his head on the ground. It was an inspirational moment when Stefan rose to his feet to take his kick.

In the last quarter Darcy Broom iced the game with another goal.

Some of the mothers, who were a bit worse for wear having been at the Ladies day the previous day/night cheered loud and proud as the final siren sounded ! The boys were over the moon with their first ever win jumping around and high fiving each other.

After we shook hands with Burnside Heights we gathered in a circle and sang the song for the very first time with our Captain Adrian in the middle. We stumbled through the words and ended with a big cheer at the end !

Well done boys, it was a very deserving win and a total team effort. It`s been a long time coming and a credit to you all for not giving up. As it happens all the juniors had a win on the day.

Special mention to Jye Muscat who has offered to be our boundary umpire this year and the injured William Lee helping out with water, we hope to have you back in the team soon William.

Very proud coaches Lozz and Ben.
