Rnd 7 Reserves versus Mordialloc
Round 7 we were back at the raider dome to take on Mordialloc – another good even contest for the reserves.
The boys started the game well and had plenty of the ball from the first contest, however poor disposal was letting our ability to get on the scoreboard.The conditions were a little windy, however a similar style of play and disposal led into the second qtr and only achieving I think 1 goal 7 to half time this kept Mordialloc only 9 points behind at the half
The second half was more the same and the game was not pretty to watch, however at 3 qtr time we had a slender lead of 11 points, and I urged the boys to keep fighting hard as this would be a season defining game for us, even though Mordialloc came back to get the lead, our boys dug deep and kick 3 goals to eventually win the game by 16 points
Even though not a great performance, it was pleasing the boys dug deep when needed and gained back the momentum – the last qtr was probably our best for the day
The Reserves have now won 3 on the trot, and we have another big test against Dingley to keep progressing to a finals campaign – keep getting on the track and start trying to get some weekly extras also done
Congratulations to Rossco and Clarky on their respective milestones – a great achievement
Also thanks to Clarky for his pre-game chat about Army and his time as a Raider – a great reflection on giving 110%
