ROUND 13 V WAUBRA
Conditions for football changed this week, with a heavy frost then a good day and surface greeting our Under 12s at Skipton.
U12s team enjoyed the firmer surface, kicking 4.5-29 to Waubra’s 0.0-0. Noah Kennedy won the Pinky’s voucher, Thomas Gardiner in his first game received the Skipcoin voucher, and the classy Bowen Corbett received the Bakery award.
U15s are going very well, playing as a team, with some good contributors in all positions. I know the coaching staff are working to improve every player and the team as a whole, vitally important as we get towards the business end off the season. Skipton 21.8-134 to 0.0-0. Pinky’s voucher went to Jack Sheehan, Skipcoin Harry Wills, and the Bakery award to Hamish Hall. U18s had a great win dominating the opposition 12.14-86 to 2.2-14. This is a great reward for the hard work of the boys and coach Chris Jones. As previously mentioned it hasn’t been the easiest season numbers wise, but there is talent and promise within the group. These young men are an essential part of our clubs future, and its great to see them play well. Jack Sheehan has another Pinky’s voucher for the day, Lachlan Smyth won the Skipcoin and Brandon McCarthy the Emu Creek Deli and Gifts award. Reserves had a pretty good game, better than the scoreboard says. We had a lot of the play but lacked the ability to convert. Skipton 2.4-16 defeated by Waubra 12.6-78. Anthony Bedggood and Alex Morcombe won the awards. Seniors game started in a similar fashion to the last few, Skipton out of the blocks early, and at quarter time the crowd wondering if the effort can be sustained. The pressure stayed on from our team with the boys still a good chance into the last quarter. There were some nerves and concern from Waubra supporters, as it seemed a side that they demolished last year could be challenging them. The difference in the end was that Waubra scored a little more easily than Skipton from their hard work, getting away in the final stages to win by 34 points. Huge steps have been taken this year and we are going to work harder than ever to take many more. Skipton 6.8-44 to Waubra 11.12-78. Better players Kal Dubbeldam and Jack Peeters.
The Skipton emuettes managed 3 wins when we took on Waubra at home on Saturday. Despite the very frosty start, the weather cleared to a sunny though chilly day for some very physical matches.
