MATCH REPORT:After a high scoring first quarter St Virgils were in front by 3 goals at quarter time. We matched St Virgils during the second quarter with our pressure so still down by 3 goals at halftime. St Virgils upped the ante and outscored us by 3 goals in the third quarter with cleaner ball movement and accurate finishing in front of goals .  We finished full of running, matching St Virgils again but overall  our skills were not quite as good as St Virgil. 30 scoring shots and kicking over 100 points gives us a lot to work with moving forward and we relish the chance to have another crack  at DoSA this week. Simon again was our best player in the midfield and he was supported by Troy, Trolley and Blaze.
Let's get a big win for Trolley this week in his 200th game.
We wish our senior match manager Chris Palmer a speedy recovery after his medical operation last week and hope to see him back at the club soon. Thankyou to Greg Collis for taking the reins while he is absent.

MATCH REPORT: We had a magnificent start against St Virgils keeping them scoreless in the first quarter, Ned and Grubby scoring two goals a piece. St Virgils came at us in the 2nd but we held strong in defence and continued to play wellin the midfield and led by 6 goals at half time. The premiership quarter was again a win to us and with a solid last quarter ran out winners by 50 points. Jed Behrens led from the front in his first game back from injury and was well supported by Grubby and Chip in the midfield. Oli was solid down back and up forward Gav and Stokers were busy around goals. Lets keep improving our game plan and set a goal of kicking more than 12 goals for the game


 R4 Women :    08.10 (058) d Brighton 01.04 (010)

Another cracking Autumn morning greeted the teams at Pontville. The sun was out, the ground was in great condition and there was no excuse for good footy. Uni had never beaten Brighton previously, and were keen to address this, and in fact had not ever had a win at Pontville Oval, so there was some incentive for the team. Its fair to say that in 2019 and 2020, Brighton easily accounted for Uni and were a team we were worried about.
The first quarter was somewhat listless, the ball bounced between the half-back lines and for Uni, only Mimi Refaei stood out with her courage and decision making. Although Uni had their noses in front, it was far from a convincing performance. As the game progressed, the Uni midfield started to assert and Jas Allnutt, Olly Dove and Sam Rose got into their groove. In the ruck, Maggie O’May and Lauren Maddock worked hard and presented well.
Defensively, Emily Philpott swept around effectively, and Annie Lord and Sarah Ikin were busy players. Up forward, Remie Bampton enjoyed the wide spaces at Pontville and put on a great marking display to go with her 3 goals. Verity Dawkins and Bonnie Grynglas kicked valuable majors and kept our noses in front. The quarter highlight was Sarah Ikin wandering into the forward line to take a strong overhead mark and impressive finish from 30m to show her fellow defenders how goalkicking is done.
Brighton refused to concede and came back strongly. They are not a side to be taken lightly as we have seen before. The last quarter was probably our best, and Sam Rose went forward to kick 2 valuable goals and lift her Pontville Curse. It was good to finish off the game strongly, but as always, we kicked more points than goals and missed some gettable shots.
Uni still have work to do. We dropped too many marks and need to be cleaner with our ground ball collects. Intensity was down a little, and we need to rectify this in future games. It was a workmanlike performance, but we have not yet hit top gear and need everyone to get to training and address our skill errors.
