Match Report: It was a glorious Sunday morning for our Round 9 catch up match verses Henry Lawson. With the disappointment of the loss the day before, Aidan away and Heath out injured, we needed to work hard to secure a win against the team we beat convincingly in the first round.
We controlled the match early and settled into some good passing play. Gus grabbed a fine goal early to settle us further into the match. It was another sharp finish from the captain which put Henry Lawson on the back foot. They threatened a few times but our backline was solid and worked the ball out well on several occasions. Will Foreman and Chris controlled the midfield extremely well.
Gus grabbed another goal in the second half to also grab Man of the Match honours. He stepped up when we really needed him to and both were very well placed shots. Excellent finishing. He was desperately unlucky not to grab a hat trick but was thwarted by an excellent keeping effort late in the game. Others also went close but we couldn’t find another goal.
It was a good win, though a little tighter than we would have liked. We were a little ‘clunky’, we often tried to beat one too many and our passes didn’t always hit the mark, but there were signs of better things to come.
Happy to take the three points!
