The Basin FC VS Wantirna South
After finally stringing four good quarters of football together the week before against Whitehorse, this week we ventured out to Wantirna South and a chance to reclaim our spot in the Top 5.
Matt Price missed with injury and we welcomed back Jono Pittman into the senior side.
Again Will Gayfer lead the way in the ruck and all our midfield were dominant, dominating the clearances, however some wayward kicking for goal saw us go in only 2 goals up at quarter time when we had a real chance to push for a commanding lead.
All coaches wanted the players to take the first option and continue to use the ball efficiently and attack right across the ground.
The umpires seized control, handing our numerous yellow and red cards, luckily none to TBFC players, however some uncharacteristic undisciplined acts led to easy goals for the opposition.
Rule number 1: Look after the footy. We were unable to execute sometimes basics skills and these errors continued to hurt us on the scoreboard.
Wantirna South made us pay for these mistakes and held on for a four goal win.
Max Kruger lead the way in his best game for the year (game high 12 tackles), Patch Adams dominated again and Moey Chircop showed he can make a real difference adding some class in the midfield.
Clinton Jones did a wonderful job shutting down their leading goalkicker and continues his “scalp taking” in 2014 !
We now sit 3-4 and sixth on the ladder but with results not going our way, we have fallen two games outside the Top 5.
Season defining game this week against our arch rival Boronia this week, this is sure to be a game you will not want to miss.
