Coach's Comments U/8's Red

Round 14 - vs Warrandyte
Lachie Neal led the side out for the last time this season against a full strength Warrandyte line up.
The boys put the pressure on right from the first bounce and worked hard to lock the ball inside our forward line for the majority of the quarter. Jack found plenty of the ball whilst Gabriel was proving difficult to contain in front of goal.
More of the same in the 2nd quarter with Adam and Sam leading by example and taking front position just as the coaches had asked. Lachie Drossos set up some nice attacks with good use of handball that did not go without notice and no doubt for this reason he received the opposition award.
Luke, Ollie and Dion showed pace taking on the opposition tackles with confidence in another strong 3rd quarter.
The last quarter saw some great individual and team efforts, but none better than Mitch's goal saving smother. Josh hit the scoreboard multiple times but it was Max who was the standout. Max did a power of running, continuing to provide an option on the attacking side of the ground as directed. Whilst not being rewarded by teammates every time, when he was it had an immediate impact. A timely mark, play on and goal late in the game confirmed his medal winning performance.
A big thank you to Jacqui (team manager), Paul (assistant coach), David (umpire) and to all the parents and family members who came down and supported the boys this year, a great introduction to football that has seen an enormous amount of improvement. Most importantly we had a great deal of fun along the way.
