Full Time Round 5

FULL TIME – Rounds 5&6

Only the one winner from the seven Senior games on Saturday, the Women’s Prem team holding out Westbourne Grammarians away for a tremendous win.

This was an important win for the Prem team who are in a very tight and competitive division.  This game was a real defensive battle with our back six, led by Liv Stockdale, holding firm all day.  Emily Van de Water was outstanding as a defensive mid, while Cass Newman provided her usual drive through the middle. Other good players included Katelyn Randall, Sunday Hollingsworth and Sam McLean. A below strength Reserves fought gamely but were outnumbered by a full-strength Westbourne. Best players were Meg Lambert, Naimh Stainsforth and Maya Buhl.

Nearing the end of the 3rd quarter our Senior Mens team lead by 25 points over Old Ivanhoe, however two late opposition goals changed the momentum of the game. In the end there was only a goal in it and for consecutive weeks we’ve not held onto a ¾ quarter time lead. A key positive was the performance of our defensive six who were without captain Cal Linehan. Leading the way were two young players who have really taken on the challenge, Spencer McLennan and Tom O’Rourke. The other pleasing aspect has been goal kicking accuracy, which has been very good all season. Other good players were, Riley Mihailovic, Nate Dear (3 goals), James Pepper and Will Nish.

The Reserves fought gamely in another tight game going down by 14points. Best players were Matteo Barba, Angus Hill and Matthew Scott.

In the twilight game, the Youth Reserves were out gunned by a well drilled Old Xavs team, however there were some nice BFC family connections. The Young brothers, Brodie and Ryan, who have played an extraordinary 311 combined games for the club, came together for the Saturday night game, Ryan up from the U19s to help out the team. Two great club men. We also had Jake Dickson recruit his Dad Jarrod into playing the game, due to low bench numbers. It’s not everyday you run onto the ground with your Dad. Well done Jake and Jarrod. Best players were Brodie, Thomas McCauley and Ethan Dallas

The U19 Prem boys, playing away, were in front at ¾ time but faded to go down to Uni Blues.  Flynn Groves, Carlos Reynolds and Luka Pecer were our best. Similarly, the U19 Twos were in the game up to their eye balls against Old Xavs at Strady Park but couldn’t muster a final challenge. Best players were Nathan Astill, Hudson Sims and Jack Pacitti.

Big games across the board coming up this weekend.
