AGAINST ALL ODDS
Coming up against Uni Blues at Uni Oval was a terrific chance to make a statement after giving up 7 goals in the last quarter against Xavs the previous game. Make a statement the Senior boys did, with a terrific win over the much more highly fancied Uni Blues. This just goes to prove anything is possible when you put your mind to it and play to the structures and team rules. Special mention to Rising Star Ollie Jackson, who, in only his second senior game, kicked 5 goals in a standout performance.
The other great win of the weekend was the Thirds getting the points at the Trott over Uni Blacks and celebrating their first win of the season. This is just-rewards for all the hard work they have put in. Special mention must go to Mitch Polities who works so hard getting the team on the paddock each week and to coach Paul McGowan.
The Development boys came home with a late charge but ended up a couple of goals short. However, with our depth tested at the moment, things must be put into perspective.
The Under 19s are finding the going pretty hard at the moment. However, they got a few players back from injury this week with hopefully more to come next week.
The girls had a tough weekend with both teams losing to Old Geelong after a trip down the highway to play them at Geelong College. Thanks to all the girls who agreed to play down there and represent Collegians. They were not the results we wanted, and a few injuries down there didn’t help matters either. On a bright note was the runner for both games, who did a great job; I wonder who that was!
