ROUND 5 v ROKEWOOD/CORINDHAP

FOOTBALL

In a day reminiscent of times past Skipton travelled to Rokewood and had a clean sweep of the football. A good, vocal crowd was in attendance, supporting our teams.

The under 12s had a scrappy game for three quarters, leading all game, until they put some good play together in the last, getting away to a good win. Skipton 3.3-21 def Rokewood 1.0-6. Awards to Oakden Williams and James Read.

The under 15s again played an entertaining game, and are improving each week. Very impressive is the way they listen to Kiernan’s instructions, carrying them out to the best of their abilities. Final scores, Skipton 12.10-82 def Rokewood 1.1-7.

Awards to Bailey Meek and Andy Wills.

The reserves improved again, welcoming back the old war horse Tim Gawne. Gawney commented that in his time at Skipton he had never experienced the feeling of togetherness and common purpose that he saw on Saturday. There is more upside yet in our reserves, and sitting at 4 wins and 1 loss , more fitness and skill from continuous training together will only help. Skipton 13.8-86 def Rokewood 3.8.26.

The senior game promised to be exciting, we had come to Rokewood with great expectations last year and been defeated, so we were a little nervous. We had three inclusions, Mitch Bruns our assistant coach playing his first game for the season, Luke Bell after performing well in the Reserves previously and crowd favourite Tim Huglin returning after a spell in the twos. Omissions were the three injured, Sam Peeters, Michael Madden and Josh Hassan. Skipton continued the good form from the last quarter against Hepburn, moving the ball well against the breeze, with many contributors, among them especially in the first half was Andrew Pitson, Pitto was wearing a very close tag but still managed to have a major influence on the game. Mitch Bruns showed what an asset he will be to our team and rock solid defence with great contributions from Josh Draffin among others were prominent. Curt Townrow was a great target in attack and finished with 5 goals. After half time we lost Xavier Lourey with concussion but Bailey Thompson stepped into his fullback role admirably. Rokewood came out and used the wind well, lifting their intensity and reducing our lead. All was set up for a tight final quarter but Skipton put the pedal down and kicked away to wi by six goals. Skipton 15.14-104 def Rokewood 9.9-63.

NETBALL

The juniors had bragging rights on Saturday as all 4 grades took home wins against Rokewood at Rokewood. Unfortunately the 3 senior grades were unable to continue the good results but were gallant in their efforts.

The under 13b girls started the day strong with some good netball and a big
