ROUND 8 v BUNINYONG


FOOTBALL

The Buninyong oval is a fantastic football surface , even though a little frosty early it was great for our teams to play on. The chill lifted with the sunshine and it was as good a day as any we have had so far. James Draffin returned to his coaching duties this week at Buninyong. His Under 12 team had a big test in a very low scoring game. The youngsters sometimes looked a bit lost on the expanse of the wide Buninyong oval, making it very difficult to score when trapped out wide. The contest ended in a draw, 1.4-10 apiece. Best players S. Kennedy, H. Draffin, P. Gowans, D. Alexander, A. Wills, C. Cahill.

The Under 15 side got out of the blocks well, making the most of the breeeze scoring 4.3-27 to 0.0-0 in the first quarter. They managed to contain Buninyong when they had the breeze in the second, and the game continued in that fashion with Skipton managing to score a goal against the wind in the last, taking the margin out to 33 points. Skipton 9.7-61 to Buninyong 4.4-28. Best players B. Scott, L. Wills, J. Sheehan, M. Boyer, B. Nash, J. Liston

The Under 18s played a good Buninyong outfit, a top four side that played the large ground very well. While there were some encouraging individual performances and passages of play, for the most part it was Buninyong’s day. New player Mitchell Miller from Sebastopol on permit. We hope Mitch enjoyed himself and sees a future for himself and his family with the Emus! Skipton 4.3-27 defeated by Buninyong 13.8-86. Best players M. Grieve, B. Uwland, H. Tompkins, A. Jackson, C. Stranks, F. Morcombe

The reserves were a bit light on with missing players and injuries, but it is a credit to see that a full side played despite this. Last year we would have been stretched very thinly with so many missing, so well done everyone concer
