A disappointing performance after the highs of defeating Huonville the week before. North Hobart came out fired up, as their season was on the line. They bought the effort and intensity and we did not. Missed tackles, ineffective spoils, playing from behind and giving away too many free kicks was a concern for us, and something that we have to rectify quickly. You are only as good as your last game, so we have some ground to make up this week against a promising young Kingborough team.
Good players from the weekend were Bonnie Grynglas for her hard run and strong attack on the footy, Annie Lord for never giving up, Maggie Bowman for sparking the forward line and Sarah Ikin and Kristy Baker for slogging it out in the midfield. Good sides get back up and dust themselves off. We aim to do exactly that against Kingborough 11.30 this Sunday at Uni. . Belles Player of the week Bonnie Grynglas, Solo Pizza Maggie Bowman.

Saturday was a great result for our club considering the conditions. A 72 point victory gave us some much needed percentage and confidence heading into the last 3 rounds. The style of football we have played over the past month has tested some of the top sides and its no surprise our line up us been much more consistent with less injuries and not as many players away for work or pleasure. 
St Virgil's gave us a physical contest and never shirked the issue in what can only be described as a classic slog in trying conditions but we really stuck to our plans in the 2nd half to run out convincing winners. Josh Hall again showed his experience with 6 Goals in a wet weather master class and his apprentice Lachlan Ayliffe finished with 3 goals in a BOG performance, Lachy was playing with a dry footy compared to all others. Nathan Hardy, Oli Fryett, Jack Tammens and Trolley Fenton provided plenty of drive through the middle and Josh Fogarty and Mick Booth held firm in defence repelling anything that came their way. Over all it was a fantastic team effort with many contributors and no injuries to come out of the game.
Next week we venture down the road to Queenborough for our biggest game of the year against a dangerous Hutchins. It is also the Annual Southee- Palfreyman Cup with it being Hutchins turn to host the game. Hutchins have some stars in their line up and always lift against us with Wright, Alcorso, Clarke and Franks players to make sure we nullify as well as Murfitt- Cowan, Kingston and Triffet up forward who are all capable of kicking bags if allowed.
We really need to stand up and be counted this week and show we have matured as a group and have a desire to take this season further than the 3 remaining rounds. The winner of this game will be in the box seat to take fourth spot which should make for a fantastic game of Old Scholars football with the double motivation of the SP Cup and 4th spot.
Get along and support our boys in this massive game, if you haven't been to a game this year make sure you get to Queenborough to see this one. It will be worth every cent of the admission.

In the wet and slippery conditions we struggled to match it with St Virgils over the ball. Although only an 11 point defeat St Virgils were much better at getting the quick kick in to move the ball forward and give their forwards opportunities to score. Rip and Jordy tried hard and Ed and Adam ran the ball off the backline. Lets get back on track against the Beans and with finals coming up we need to work on sticking to our structures and  lift our communication to one another. Solo Pizza Mark Rippon.

Seniors - First Quarter

Wet conditions prevailed producing a good old game of men in the mud!




Umi kicked 5 goals to nil in the first quarter and were never really challenged after that




















  Hall kicked another 6 goals








Goal to Woodhead who was playing his 50th game






An expected but good win in the wet.
