ROUND 7 V GORDON
Bailey and Blake played their 100th game respectively for the mighty Emus this week, congratulations on this great achievement!
Skipton turned on the great weather again for our games against Gordon on the weekend. Plenty of local support in evidence and the opposition were well supported.
The Under 12s played well under fill in coach Warwick Read, we wish James Draffin all the best with his back ailment recovery, but be aware Draff, someone is eyeing off your job! Skipton 6.5-41 to Gordon 0.0-0. Pinky’s Pizza award went to Laine Scott, Skipcoin to Tiger Williams. Well done boys.
The Under 15s came up against another undefeated side in a test for their team play. They hit the ground full of enthusiasm looking to help Bailey Meek and Blake Scott celebrate their 100th games. After an evenly matched first half Skipton were able to control a relatively low scoring game, winning 7.6-48 to 4.2-26. Awards went to Bailey Meek for Pinky’s pizza , and Marty Boyer received the Skipcoin.
The Under 18 game was a familiar affair, as I have said before Skipton have a quality list but are 5 players short on quantity. Such is the nature of junior football, your fortunes change yearly in a cyclical nature as players move in and out of age groups. Despite this, as in every other game they play, our team gives it their all, and are continuing to learn and improve under coach Chris Jones. Final score, Skipton 3.5-24 defeated by Gordon 11.7-73. Pinky’s went to Lachy Wills, Skipcoin to Cree Stranks, Emu Creek Deli to Jake Crack.
