The Basin VS Boronia
This week we welcomed Boronia to our turf, the day also coincided with our past players function so a massive day for the club.
With both teams stalking a Top 3 spot, we knew the game would have finals intensity and that’s exactly how it panned out. We saw a grinding game, with a lot of physical play and stoppages and minimal scoring for the first 3 quarters, unfortunately we were unable to match their intensity and structure in the last quarter and let Boronia run away with the game.
A very disappointing last quarter and just like the previous week against Ringwood, something we need to rectify as we position ourselves for finals in 2013.
Great to see 2 players returning to the team this week were in our best. Both Andrew Cowlishaw & Dean Makin deserve credit for not only regaining their spots in the best 22, but showing that they well and truly belong at this level. Josh Wilson tried hard all day in numerous positions, and the usual suspects of Will Gayfer, Trev Mills & Josh Adams were again dominant.
This week we venture over to Mitcham, definitely the underdogs but well aware of what it takes to beat them having done so already earlier this year.
