Round 16 v Hutchins at Hutchins 14/08/2021

Hutchins get the upper hand against the men but the Lady Bows prove too good for Brighton. The Seniors bow out for this season but the Reserves make the finals finishing second on the ladder.

Our lads fought hard last week to regain the Southee/Palfreyman cup and the game was in the balance until the last quarter. A couple of skill errors by us and good reading of the play by Hutchins saw them run out winners by 25 points. Our Skipper led from the front and was well supported by Blake, Will and Chiv down back. Vanders continually won in the centre and as always Jed tackled well around the ground. The game probably sums our season up as again we were close but not as clean as the opposition. We have a lot of positives to work with. By keeping the group together and building on the last part of the season gives us a lot of hope for 2022.

A slow start cost us again and we were three goals down at quarter time. Outscoring Hutchins for the next three quarters gives us a lot to lot forward to today when we front up against them in the Second Semi. Bos had his best game for the season running off the wing and Jimmy, Cappa and Albs solid in defence. Of note was Cappa's great goal in his part in setting up the wall. We must start well today and give our forwards more opporunities to kick a winning score and see us through to the Grand Final.

 R13 Women 10.14 (074) d Brighton 02.01 (013) Sat 14th Aug at Pontville Oval 10:00am.

Uni had lost 2 of their last 3 games and were looking to bounce back against Brighton at Pontville. Whilst they might be sitting at the bottom of the table, Brighton always give a strong account of themselves and are usually competitive and hard at the ball.

The Uni mantra was to control what we could control, and so we went into the game with a strong focus on our effort and energy, with a large dose of determination.  The wind certainly picked up early and became a factor. That said, Uni’s ground kicking was astray, but they made up for it with some quality handball movement down the ground. Bec Boxall continues to grow in the ruck, and Leah Bartlett, Madi Mulder and Olly Dove were busy around the ground. We also welcomed back Nat Gartlan and Gabby Watson after some weeks out. Bonnie Grynglas continued her purple patch of form in the middle, and Annie Lord and Em Philpott were tidy and assured down back.

Unfortunately, after half time the game deteriorated as Brighton adopted an overly physical and verbally abusive mindset, which was unnecessary and not in the right spirit. This only steeled Uni’s resolve, and after an inspirational address by Erin Chivers at three-quarter time, Uni shut the gate with a number of strong goals to record a 61-point win.

The ever-improving Lauderdale await today in what should be another close contest between these two young teams.

UNIVERSITY – 1.5, 4.7, 5.9, 10.14.

Goal Kickers – Remie Bampton 7, Bella Shannon 1, Olly Dove 1, Eleanor Dykstra 1.

Best – Annie Lord, Madi Mulder, Nat Gartlan, Bec Boxall, Em Philpott, Eli Cropp, Remie Bampton.

BRIGHTON – 0.0, 0.0, 2.1, 2.1.
