Match Report Round 1 - Sunday April 15th

Colts vs Mordialloc Braeside

What a fantastic start to the year for the boys who played in  difficult wet and windy conditions on Sunday. The day started very well with a superb speech by the Captain Aiden Farrell who led from the front all day. His hard ball gets and superb running continued in the trying conditions. Bailey Rudd enjoyed the freedom of more than one bounce and had our first goal within 20 seconds straight out of the middle with 4 bounces and attacked the goals it was a brilliant start. The boys relished not having to play in zones and we will get better at this but we tended to lose our structure a little as they all just chased the footy. Although I disliked the zones towards the end you can definitely see the benefit of them.

What was most pleasing was the second efforts made by the players notably  Dion in his first game for the club had a shot that was smothered and then picked it up again and put it through for a great goal. There were many other cases like Harry Smith who handballed then ran hard to the next contest then got involved and held the ball in amongst 3 opposition players.

Play of the day goes to Callum(Dusty Martin) Ryan who did a great don't argue fend off and sent his tackler flying through the air and then finished with a goal.

With a comfortably win first up there is still plenty to learn getting used to the new rule changes but we are getting there. We really need to work hard on helping each other out be that shepherding or providing good options further up the field. We must maintain our structure and only give the ball to someone in a better position. Our fundamentals of getting back from the man on the mark and picking them up in the backline or when we don't have the ball were not great but we will continue to work on this.

That being said I was very happy in the tough conditions with how the boys were able to play out a very solid game with a comfortable win.

Big training session this week focusing on contested ball, spreading and positional play.

Well done
