Round 4 v St Virgils at Uni 01/08/2020
It was a big day of local footy at University on Saturday with all three TUFC teams taking the field for three wins.
University 3.3, 7.8, 11.13, 16.14 (110)
St Virgils 1.3, 1.5, 4.8, 4.10 (034)

Blake Waight was a clear B.O.G racking up possessions across half back at will and he was well supported by fellow backs Sean Clark and Simon Vandervelde who kept their opponents in check and provided plenty of rebound ball. Veteran Trent Stevens was again a solid contributor on ball and up forward finishing with two goals and 25 possessions.
The last quarter was pleasing again by our boys, keeping the Saints goalless and banging on 5 goals and 1 behind to get some much needed percentage to keep us up the pointy end of the ladder.
The challenge doesn't get any bigger than this week as we take on OHA at home in a battle for 2nd spot. The Ships have been the talk of the OSFA with their recruiting drive over the preseason adding plenty of Ex-TSL players to their already experienced list. We believe we can more than match them with our young on ball brigade to give our forwards enough chances to kick a winning score. Nick Bien, Jack Bromfield and Ash Woodhead will all be available for selection to help strengthen our side and provide the coaching staff with some tough decisions during the week. It should be another exciting contest so get along and Support the Bows in our 2nd last Home Game for the year.

Defensively, it was an excellent effort, with Annie Lord, Kristy Baker and Sarah Donnelly working overtime in defence. The midfield was involved in an arm wrestle with the Suns, who also have quality players. Uniís Bonnie Grynglas was in outstanding form, assisted by Captain Sam Rose and Hannah Simpson to drive the ball forward. We only kicked 2 goals for the day, the second courtesy of an amazing Remi Bampton snap, but it was enough to take the 4 points in a close contest. Charlotte OíNeill, Madi Mulder and Mimi Refaei also had notable games.
I could not fault the effort and grit the team displayed, particularly to come from behind to grab the win. Itís a tribute to the players that they never gave up, but there is still some work to do on our overall skills if we are to match it with the top sides.
It's worth noting that prior to the game the Suns took up a collection from their players to cover the usual $5 gate charge of the SFLW. They were under no obligation to do this, but it shows their integrity to pass this money onto Uni.
We now go into the bye weekend, with a chance to rest some players and have a short break before taking on Lindisfarne on the 15th August.
