The Basin FC VS Glen Waverly Hawks FC
Finally the training and talk was over and it was time to get into the 2014 season.
As per usual every club had recruited amazingly well and was ready to roll, TBFC included of course!
Quite amazingly we welcomed 10 new and returning players into the senior team for this week’s game against Glen Waverley Hawks.
Our new look midfield got us off to a flyer, with Matt Price and Daniel Den Braber constantly forcing the ball forward with pin point accuracy.
Cam Cripps & Michael Thompson and new recruit Michael Cardamone all looked dangerous up forward and we had a ruthless 10 goals on the board before GWH had known what hit them.
The coaches implored players to keep the foot down and despite “only” 3 goals in the second quarter, the bears took a commanding 73 point lead into half time.
Another 11 goals to 4 after half time saw the bears run out convincing 119 point winners.
Cliché will be to say a great team effort, however best on the day deserve their accolades and were almost all new players to the senior team – congratulations to Matt Price, Cam Cripps, Justin Dight, Andrew Battye & the returning Aaron Brown & premiership skipper Daniel Den Braber on fantastic games.
Whilst we will never take a great win like this for granted we are acutely aware the challenge that face everyone when we welcome Mitcham to the bearcave for the first time since they ended our finals campaign 6 short months ago.
Let’s make sure we come out in force to cheer on the boys and go 2-0 leading into the easter break.
