It's been 2 weeks since our last outing and to be honest I can't recall alot as it seems so long ago. One thing I do remember vividly is the form of Simon Trenorden in the post match celebrations. With the customary port stained cheesy grin he was the length of the Flemington straight in front of next best.
Tren's little fellas had a nice little win, no wonder the coaching staff were out to celebrate. They played great team footy and will be looking to snag a few more wins and sneak into the top 5 by years end. Best players were Lachie Makin (Tolmer Takeaway), Lachie Jamie Francis (Tatiara Industrial Repairs), Lachie Murch (Jolpac), Lachie Angus Day (Optimum Cut), Lachie Conner Coventry (Bordertown Fruit Market), Lachie Joain Tumlos (Limestone Coast Freight).
Ol' Johnnie's boys were set for their big match up last time out and showed they were up to the fight with a great performance. This side is shaping up very well and will be looking for a couple more wins to roll into finals with some good momentum. Best players were Pecker Densley (Niel and Pam Murch Award), Brodie Foulds (Pooles Menswear), Harry Fromm (Murch Plumbing and Roofing), Ben Jarrett (Tatiara Driver training), Jack "Linguini Arms" Trenorden (Wickham Flower), Lincoln Weatherald (Ray White).
The magoos were up against a top two side and were slow starters. With depth being tested with some A graders overseas. The boys were gallant in defeat and their pressure around the ball was ok at times and with some players coming back the side will go places later in the year. Best were Graeme Twigden (USE Liquid waste & Creaser Bobcat and Haulage), Brendan Kupke (Redden kitchens, Norton Bulk & Ladies meal voucher), Josh Tink (Bordertown Pharmacy & Wild Mulberry Garden centre), Travis Verco (Cut loose hair &.Body lounge), Jarred Creaser (Woolshed Inn), Matt Tink (Sport N Moore).
Hayseys men were neck and neck with the demons in the first half, but with the speed of ball movement back to its best and the better polish than the opposition our boys were able to ease ahead in the last half to finish with a comfortable win. Best were Clint Diment (Jolpac & Wise Ford), Nafe Clark (Densley Earthmoving & Wickham Flower), Gene Robinson (AWE Richards), Maddy Hayes (Woolshed Inn), Lochie Eats (Optimum Cut), Brent Shuttleworth (Bordertown Pharmacy).
Today we are heading over to the sleepy town of Goroke, one of the sporting fields that Roger the Rooster was a great performer on. All trips to Goroke involve great stories so let's have a great day and create another story to tell your grandkids about.
Tonight's teas are at the Woolshed Inn after the day's play so head there and fill the dining room with red and white
