Best players: C Park, O Woolford, J Lange, K O'Garin.
In what was a disappointing result we went down by eight points to an highly disciplined North side. Our effort to contain them in the last quarter for four minutes when they kicked three quick goals was inadequate to say the least. We must learn from this game to always put in a constant, determined and desperate effort. To not take it easy when we consider the match to be won. We lost our way and had no sense of urgency in those four minutes and let them dominate play to which we were second to the contest and our players did not respond positively to the challenge that was thrown at them. When we finally realised we had a game to be one it is terrific to see our smaller mosquito fleet throw themselves at the contest and to make every effort to attain back the advantage that we held for three quarters of football.
There were still a number of good passages of play with switching play which resulted in a goal for us, standing at the goal line when the opposition were kicking for goal and able to kick and run the ball out.
We can move on from this game knowing that in a game like football, it can change with a small amount of momentum and positive reasoning. There is no reason we cannot take on a challenge like this one has presented to us and we can grow stronger and learn as we develop into a fighting tiger unit.
Our next major hit-out is against the Western Sydney Bulldogs on September 7th. A training session is scheduled for the 20th August onwards with a special session on Saturday the 6th September at 3.00pm. A dinner /BBQ is planned on the Saturday night and all lads are invited to train on the Saturday and have dinner at the club on Saturday night. We will get numbers when we resume training after 20th August.

A special win tonight as we downed South by 2 points in a thriller.
Our tackling was an outstanding feature in tonight’s win and in the three quarters of hard fought football we were on top of all the contestable stats. Their tall players had no respite in the constant pressure we put on their back & forward line and out little mosquito fleet were superb in our attack on the football at ground level and our endeavour to win the ball at all costs. We put them under pressure on all parts of the ground. Missing some quality players only helped our resolve to win the football many times and was well led by our captain on the night McCreery whose body work led to quite a few clearances by our ball carriers. Giles was also involved and improves every week. Brown was terrific in attack instead of defence and two goals is a real confidence booster. McCrae, Vine and Wingard were terrific as well as Morrison, Harry, Pole and Moore, Park, Lange and Welsby.
We seem to gain confidence each week and building to a climatic conclusion in next’s week game against North.Our little mossies Bonutto and Flea never give up in a contest, Bonuttos opponent was nearly a metre in height bigger than he was and yet was able to slot a goal and had chances of many more!
Our only negative for the night boys was our kicking in the last quarter led to too many turnovers and let them back into the game. We must continually practice our delivery of the ball on the run and we must lift our head and spot up one of our players to negate this practice. I realise we tire but we must learn to concentrate be better prepared against our opponents on all skills.
We have to be faster, accurate and harder than our opponents and aspire to be the best we can be each time so we climb that staircase of experience through your footy careers.
Glenelg 7-7 def Sturt 3-3
Best: Kristian O'Gairin, Callum Park, Beau McCreery. Tyler Bishop, Owen Woolford
The boys put in a solid effort all night winning each quarter. They showed some really good passages of play willing to take the game on and move the ball quickly.

Glenelg Under 13 Development ResultsV Port at Plympton Friday 16 / 5 / 14
Glenelg 7 5 (47) def Port Adelaide 7 4 (46)
Goals: 2 each to Bishop, Woolford, and 1 each to Wingard, Short and McCreery.
Best players: Bishop, Woolford, McCreery, Searle, Short and Edwards.
With the first game over it is extremely pleasing to see all the lads chosen for the team putting in a strong performance at Plympton Friday night. Port were a very good side and never gave up at any stage of the match, but I feel our boys were brilliant at sticking to our simple structures to finally outscore them. Our backline were impressive with Searle, Park, Downey, Harry and Brown who continually held off a determined Port attack. McCreery played extremely well and was in and out of the packs as well as Pole who's endeavour and tenacity continues to grow. Woolford was shifted into the centre to give us some extra run in the middle and finished running continuous attacks until being injured in the latter part of the game. Our potent forward line in Short, Bishop Staakic, Wingard, Fountas and Giles continually put their backline under pressure forcing Port to kick quickly and forcing errors. Their defence held strong for most part but we were able to break their lines and score goals in each of the quarters. Our attack on the ball was pleasing to see and we overcame the opposition for disposals. Our wingers Edwards and Patterson were instrumental in our attacking movement and will improve each week as the season goes on. Having five different goal kickers is a great start and I look forward to seeing a lot of the players share the ball around. My congratulations to all the boys for their commitment and the way they responded to the challenge that they encountered during the game. To their credit they were disciplined.
Our disposal did let us down sometimes as we mainly kicked to a contest instead of running off and leading off our opponent and we must continue to work on this as we prepare for our next game and improve our intensity in our training. Port were a high quality opposition as well as in height compared with some of our Mosquito fleet but our endeavour to bring the ball to ground and outwrestle them was commendable. Friday night we played to a plan that we have been concentrating on for the 5-6 weeks. There are still quite a few things that we need to work on. This means that our players need to know our game style instinctively, ensuring that all our players will be swithced on from the outset and in the same game mode.
The challenge was on before the game as I brought up how I was disappointed with the boys training etiquette on Wednesday night as they seemed to be all over the place and very complacent and needed to prove to me and themselves that they have the aptitude and attitude to play at this level. They did not disappoint me and responed very well but I have let them know in no uncertain terms to bring this to training and lets us lift the bar and take the next step to advance our training to an even higher standard.
Congratulations to all the players and I look forward to our next challenge against Sturt. As I have said before all lads that are training can be selected in the next team, no position is safe and I look forward to the next training so the boys can take the next step in their football careers.
