ROUND 10 v DUNNSTOWN
Under 12s - After a big weekend of muddy football last weekend the under 12s played another good game on a nice morning against Dunnstown. The coaching staff were very pleased with the teams effort coming out comfortable winners. Skipton 44 def Dunnstown 7. Awards to James Read, Bowen Corbett and George Wills
Under 15s - It was another great win by the under 15s who are rolling along very nicely sitting on top of ladder. The return of Harry Wills helped cover some injuries and he booted 5 goals along with his brother Lachy who also snagged 5 goals. Keep up the good work!! Skipton 90 def Dunnstown 7. Awards to Tom McCarthy, Campbell Kennedy and Jack Liston. Under 18s - A very tightly fort game all day with Dunnstown leading for most of the game. Our boys came home hard in the last quarter as the conditions became wet and slippery. With only minutes to go we had shots on goal not being able to convert them. It became very tense as Cree Stranks had a shot from a very tight angle after the final siren but unfortunately it drifted off to the left and we went down by 3 points. Skipton 26 def by Dunnstown 29. Well done on a great game, better players Brad Uwland and Cree Stranks. Reserves - A tough day at the office for our reserves team coming up against a very good Dunnstown outfit. They blew us away early and were never headed after that. We battled hard all day in the slippery conditions. Skipton 33 def by Dunnstown 97. Better players were our big men Tim Gawne and Lachy Parker. Seniors - The senior team turned a corner on Saturday with a great start kicking the first three goals to establish a good lead. Dunnstown looked a little stunned as we tackled hard putting them under great pressure forcing the ball forward for Curt Townrow to score 4 first half goals. In the end we ran out 14 point winners. Skipton 71 def Dunnstown 57. Better players Kal Dubbledam, Curt Townrow and Hamish Young. Was great to lift the roof off the Dunnstown sheds after the game. Well done lads!!
