The Basin FC VS Chirnside Park
This week we ventured out to Chirnside Park, looking for our first back to back wins for season 2014 and to continue the momentum we built at training and our defeat of Ringwood the week before.
Matt Price & Andrew Battye missed through injury and Jackson Kean & Josh Hensler were welcomed into the senior team for the first time this year after some stellar form in the reserves.
A hard fought contest all over the ground ensued for the first 3 quarters, with windy conditions making good ball use difficult.
With the bears showing great resilience to keep our eye on the prize (and not the man unlike others) and assisted by the breeze in the last quarter we kicked into top gear and nailed 8 unanswered goals to run out 40 point winners.
Trev Mills was outstanding with 4 goals, and another highlight for TBFC supporters would be young players Lachie Cripps (2 games), Cam Cripps (10 games) & Moey Chircop (15 games) all deservedly in the best players on the ground.
With some fantastic individual performances in the reserves and a few to return from injury and holidays this week, players know they must perform each week to retain their spot, certainly a healthy position for the club to be in.
Great to see us get back to back wins and we now eagerly await a rematch with Heathmont who defeated us earlier this year.
We now sit 5-5, and now only one win away from our rightful position back in the top 5.
