Match Report

Result: Won 55-50

Never has a game of two halves been so appropriate… 

First game of the season for our U13 boys and with a new mix of players with the current Year 7 and 8 boys combining it was going to be a steep learning curve. Wellow arrived with a small squad, so we had lots of changes throughout the game to ensure every boy got a good amount of game time. It was a slow start and we sat back to see what Wellow could offer. Wellow took advantage of this and ran in 40 points to our 15 in the first half. 

The second half we came out with more confidence and a passion to play. We took a lot of ball off of Wellow and with great passing and attacking the wings with some fancy footwork managed to run in 40 points to Wellow’s 10. Well done to the Year 8 boys for stopping up and leading by example and well done to the Year 7 boys for a phenomenal effort.
