Playing Karingal this week at home we were slow out of the blocks and it seemed to take us the entire first quarter to get on the same page. Trailing at the first break we went on a tear kicking 10 for the quarter and going to half time with a handy lead. The third quarter saw more of the same and we really controlled the game taking a 90 point lead into the last quarter. It was a pity we couldn't finish off the game strongly but an 80 point victory was a good result for the work put in. Ryan Smith was sensational down back and with the big forwards in McGettigan, Calder and Whelan dominating the forward line. All up a very good team display.

After a couple of bad weeks the boys were up and about right from the first bounce, with a 6 goal first quarter and from then on the boys were never headed and played good footy for the whole game and finished up winning by 90 points. Trying to find best players was hard with every one playing well and doing there bit but special mention to Hutcho who finished with 8 goals was a fantastic effort, but with a big game against Seaford this week we must be all back on our game they will be no push over

We always look forward to taking on Karingal and this season has been no different. Our opponents have been the form team in the comp which made this game an even more tantalising prospect. Typical of our contests over the past few years this one went down to the line with our boys prevailing in a hard fought last term. A really pleasing aspect of the game was the spread of contribution from all 22 players. Many players are starting to bring an element of versatility to their game which will be required to play senior football. We have a long way to go but our vital signs are up and we can now look forward to the last third of the season with some confidence

Coming up against ladder leader is a tough ask at the best of times but it’s made that much harder with two players unavailable and two struggling with injuries. But the A grade girls persevered and started with an optimistic attitude which never wavered throughout the match. Sarah Williams had a standout match in goals, moving freely, presenting well and supporting Britt Archdeacon better than ever before. Georgia Hunter played a blinder of a captains match, turning over more passes through the mid-court than any other game this season. Jess Gordon was superb driving out of defence providing solid, clear drives into attack. When Candace Page came off the court with injury Katey Rudolph and later Sophie Baker really held their own against their much regaled goaling opponents. Tess Cooper played a superbly consistent game throughout providing quality options into attack. A 9 goal deficit is the closest any team has got to Karingal so far this season which is an awesome effort from the Doggies.

Once again B grade were undermanned against a tough opposition this week in Karingal. The girls were valiant in their efforts with Katey Rudolph playing out of position in defence and doing a sterling job. Her and Sophie Baker battled throughout the whole game against their much bigger and stronger opposition. Laura Noonan was her best throughout the 3rd term running the centre well and supported by Dee Wilks who was impressive in the midcourt.

Our defensive end worked tirelessly but we just couldnt capitalise, missing too many goals, losing our confidence and then our attack at the ball. Thanks again to Katie McWhirter for stepping in and Lucy Waldock coming up to play from the D grade.
Again best ons go to the entire defensive end. Time to crack the whip at training !!

D grade went down by 5 goals against Karingal
We had a good game, dealing with many changes made by myself. Tonight the only thing to let us down were our passes, choice of pass, delivery of that pass and also receiving that pass cleanly. Unfortunately that's a huge thing to get wrong.
My best ons tonight were my defensive end.... emily, pippa, bridget and lucy. Awesome pressure on the player, pass and the shot. It was a competitive game and the girls never backed off or dropped their heads
