Reserves vs Old Carey
The mighty Blues Twos got out of the blocks early and a five goal first term was an encouraging sign, although allowing Carey to drag a couple back put a dampener on proceedings.
The second term was a bit of a struggle with neither team capitalising on the many errors from both sides. The Blues enjoyed an handy 38 point lead at the main break, which could have been more if we had made more of our opportunities.
After half time, the Blues made more of their weight of possession and with Dirk Heinz and Jack Wood each bagging 6 goals we had great targets up forward.
The midfield dominated with Zach Thomson showing the benefits of an injury free pre-season. Tommy Girdwood was his usual reliable self and along with Will Hartnell and Andy Batarilo, the midfield proved a remarkable transition from a dominant defence.
Best Players: Z. Thomson, D. Heinz, W. Hartnell, J. Wood, A. Batarilo, D. Van De Pol
