The boys were ready and raring to go on a chilly Friday evening. With no wind the conditions were perfect for a night game – well as good as they can get. Coach Bence delivered his wise words as usual at the pre-match chat which got us all revved up and ready to play. With two of the senior boys back for this game we were keen and ready to go.
Once again it was clear the VAFA had made a mistake with the divisions. We always fought hard in the contests, but we couldn’t find a way to get the ball forward early on. As the game progressed the boys were getting tired, and with only one on the bench it sure made it hard to get a rest. With a couple of injuries in the second half, that really put the nail in the coffin.
This week going to Division 4, it will be sure to be a much closer score line and who knows, we may even come away with the four points.
