SE Academies Round Robin
In some very warm conditions the annual SE Academies Round Robin was held at Naracoorte on Sunday 10th March.
Millicent played Bordertown in the first match which was closely contested all game. Millicent ran out narrow winners by 8 points. Brad Wight, Jordan Dawson, Mitch Gordon and Mason Redman showed some form for the Millicent group with Jesse Salt, Tom Perry, Carson Clark and Jonty Searle winning plenty of the ball for Bordertown. 3 lads from Casterton played for Bordertown and did well in Isaac Forbes, Fraser Kent and Ethan Curry.
The second game was won convincingly by Mt Gambier 12-6 to Naracoorte 2-5. They dominated in the ruck through Tim Sullivan (who also kicked a number of goals when resting) which allowed midfielders Jack Dawe, Harry Walters and Troy Hatt to send the ball forward repeatedly. Adam Cram, Sam Zeitz and Ryan Hosking were damaging as well. Naracoorte were best served by Fraser Adams, Scott Merrett , Jake Wehl, and Travis Burns.
After a short break the 2 losers played. Bordertown got away to an early lead but Naracoorte pegged them back with a 6 goal to one second half to win by 14 points. Salt, Perry, Clark, Forbes and Sam Leuwin were good players for the losers, with Joe Fitzgerald, Wehl, Burns, Brock Kennedy and Lachie Busiko showing good signs for Naracoorte.
The playoff between the 2 winning sides was also a little one sided with Mt Gambier winning the clearances, but to Millicent’s credit they fought the game out well in the second half. The final scores were 11-6 to 3-2. Tim Sullivan was gain dominant with Cram, Sam Zeitz, Sam Baker and Riley Chant giving great support. For Millicent, Brodie Gibbs showed glimpses on ball, with Hamish Nitschke, Dylan Vanderhost, Egan Regnier and Dawson being the better players.
Best Players for each Academy on the day were Jake Wehl (Naracoorte), Jordan Dawson (Millicent, Tom Perry (Bordertown), and Tim Sullivan (Mt Gambier)
