FOOTBALL

The Beaufort Crows visited Skipton this week in one of our biggest home games for the season. A great rivalry has developed with Beaufort which adds a little bit extra to the day.

Under 12s got off to their customary good start, victorious in front a a shivering crowd, 4.2-21 to Beaufort 1.1-7. The awards for best players were Pinky’s Mia Wright, Skipcoin Oscar Sim, and Bakery Tiger Williams. Under 15s Beaufort had the best of the Under 15s in the first quarter, leading by 7 points at the first break. Thereafter however Skipton turned it on, restricting Beaufort to only one more scoring shot while adding 7 goals of their own. Again it was a good team effort by our boys to shut the opposition down. Final scores , Skipton 7.4-46 to Beaufort 2.2-14. Awards went to Ben Van Gaans for the Pinky’s voucher, Skipcoin to Campbell Kennedy, and Bakery to Aiden Walsh.

Under 18s came up against a good Beaufort side that will likely feature in the final series. There is a special intensity when our 18s play each other, while the game was played in good spirits, it was easy to tell each wanted bragging rights. Unfortunately Beaufort were too strong, increasing the margin at each break, running out victors. Skipton 4.8-32 defeated by Beaufort 10.6-66. Pinky’s went to Lachlan Maxted, Skipcoin to Fraser Morcombe and Emu Creek Deli to Matt Plover.

Reserves were in the game at times, sometimes restricting Beaufort to no score in the odd quarter but found themselves without many scoring options of their own. In the second and last quarters Beaufort made the most of the scoring end, kicking nearly their entire score . Skipton 2.5-17 defeated Beaufort 10.9-69. Josh Appleby and Mitch Webb received the awards, and in the player auction Josh Grist came through for “Only Gavan”, and Jack Robson paid out for “Midda”.
