Looking for our first win against Karingal away the boys started well having 12 scoring shots to 2 in the first quarter. Emilio Bitters was causing havoc up forward and the backline looked rock solid. We dropped the ball a bit over the middle few quarters and held on to an 18 point lead at 3 quarter time. The last quarter the boys really stepped up and put on 4 goals in the first 10 minutes to ice the game running out winners by 26 points. Xavier Barry-Murphy was terrific again over four quarters and Brad Harvey made a solid return to the senior ranks

At Frankston park the boys were up and about early kicking the first couple of goals and playing well. Second quarter started and the boys kept up the intensity but for some wayward kicking should of been further in front. With the second half on the way the boys were pushing hard and continued to put pressure on Karingal. The last quarter was more of the same with a good result for the boys and a good win

A better effort in the second half gave our boys some well earnt credibility. Our list of available players strengthens again this week and we are looking forward to taking on a rebounding Mt Eliza side. 

Netball Results

D Grade Won 35-24

It started to come together tonight, with the girls being rewarded for the pressure each and every one of them were putting on their opponents. We played an awesome 3 quarters then started to tire in the last. It got sloppy but we still managed to play some hard fought, messy netball. My best on tonight goes to Bridget P. with an amazing intercept and tip count resulting in many turnovers. Well done to Jacqui and Steph who combined well for the whole game together, Jacqui then going on to play a quarter in the C Side. The whole team should be super proud, it was a very exciting and skillful game to watch.

C Grade Lost 25-35

This was not a pretty game to watch, we seemed to play more as individuals and not as the team we played as, in round 1. My best on tonight was Amanda, her tireless work and pressure in  defence does not go unnoticed. Unfortunately we couldn't capitalise on the turnovers our defenders were getting. Welcome Meg who had her first game and what a great game she played, again so many hands to opposition balls but we didn’t capitalise on it. Well done to Demi who played her first game with the C side, although extremely nervous, she had settled in the last sinking all she put up but 1 goal. Lara went down in the 2nd quarter with a nasty ankle injury, best wishes for a super speedy recovery (back next week would be nice). Thankyou heaps to our new trainer Mel for looking after all the girls.

B Grade Lost 32-53

The B Grade girls got off to a flying start against Karingal in their round 2 encounter.  Scoring prolifically through Charli Brown and Katey Rudolph and turning over plenty of ball in defence from Carli Rickman and Eliza Tatham.  It wasn’t until midway through the first term that Karingal even troubled the scoreboard.  Karingal countered in the 2nd quarter with several changes that worked in their favour.  The Bulldogs were unable to match-up with the new and more experienced line-up for the Bulls and lost the following 3 terms to eventually lose the match.

A Grade Lost 37-57

The Bulldogs A Grade team expected a tough encounter against Karingal and that is exactly what they got.  After a solid start, unfortunately, Monica Watkins went down badly on her ankle in the first quarter and things went downhill for the side from there.  Tess Cooper showed some spark through the mid-court, supported by Tess Haddock and Georgia Hunter.  Brittany Archdeakin was the best of the goalers, working in the ring for the first time with Candace Page.  The team fought valiantly throughout the match but in the end were no match for the Bulls.
