Head coach report
Under 12 Boys, played Div 1 did not win a game but effort was very good playing. Lead most games at half time die in second halves. Good job overall. Proud of their effort. In hindsight we should have been in Div 2.
Under 12 Girls had their best carnival for the year, played Div 2 made it to the Grand Final but lost to Riverland. Great last game to beat Yorkers to make the final but was not their day. Great Defence but shooting let them down. Well done girls.
Under 16 Boys, played in a Div 1&2 comp joined, they had a tough draw. Started very slow and did not win a game but I must say I was very proud of their efforts in the Quarter finals never gave up and all tried. Excellent work boys.
Under 16 Girls, played Div 1, won 2 lost 1. Due to a bad draw they hit the team that won the GF in the quarter final losing by 18. Great game against Yorkers to win by 1. Even though they did not make the semi due to the draw they played very well. Good job girls just unlucky.
