Hop­pers club in a dom­i­nant mood

Campaspe News - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

A GREAT week­end of foot­ball and net­ball last week­end at home against Lock­ing­ton saw Colbo take home wins in all but two matches.

Our se­nior foot­ballers surged home in the last quar­ter to de­feat a de­ter­mined and im­prov­ing Lock­ing­ton out­fit.

Whilst our A grade net­ballers were able to take home another great win, re­main­ing un­de­feated with one game left in the first half of the sea­son.

Don’t for­get our next game is against North Bendigo in Bendigo, so it is a great chance to sup­port our ma­jor spon­sors The Old Bound­ary Ho­tel af­ter the game.

A great way to pre­pare your­selves for Sun­day, which is the in­fa­mous ‘One Day in Colbo’ $2000 Re­verse Draw.

Tick­ets are now due back with pay­ment to Han­nah Fuller or Darcy Tay­lor.

We hope to see as many play­ers, sup­port­ers and spon­sors there as pos­si­ble! Net­ball Pri­mary D Awards this week were hard to choose as every player de­fended well, in­ter­cepted the ball and worked on lead­ing to the ball.

All strate­gies they have been learn­ing at train­ing and were now ap­ply­ing in their game.

The can­teen awards went to Mon­ica and Dana, and the spon­sor award went to Alan­nah who were all out­stand­ing and con­tin­ued to sup­port younger mem­bers in their team.

Well done girls, it’s great to see such a sup­port­ive team. U15 — Colbo 41 def LBU 28 The U15s had a slug­gish start to the game, with Locky able to get a six goal lead at the end of the first quar­ter.

The sec­ond quar­ter had some great feed­ing around the goal ring and ac­cu­rate shoot­ing, and the girls were able to close in on Locky’s lead.

The mid court worked hard dur­ing the third quar­ter, keep­ing the ball flow­ing with some great de­fen­sive turnovers, the girls broke even 26-26.

Some smart changes and a re­fo­cus at three quar­ter time saw Colbo come alive and power to­wards the fin­ish­ing line with a 13 goal lead.

Well done girls, your stamina and fight to the end truly paid off.

Can­teen award: Alex In­gram, Sub­way award: Zoe McLean. U17 — Colbo 46 def LBU 35 Another im­pres­sive game by the un­der 17 team.

At half time, LBU scored on the siren to be only four be­hind.

Steph Crouch played a full game in de­fence, demon­strat­ing good pres­sure through­out.

Ella Ker­lin main­tained her mo­men­tum in goals and Lili McAr­dle had ex­cel­lent holds and de­fence.

Best on: Anna Lowe and Lili McAr­dle.

B Re­serve — Colbo 28 def LBU 22

B re­serve had a great game against Lock­ing­ton.

The girls came out fir­ing, tak­ing the lead from the first quar­ter.

The de­fend­ers worked hard all game creating many turnovers and also dis­played many great plays down the court which en­abled them to main­tain the lead through­out the game.

Best on went to Mikayla Palmer for her great in­ter­cepts and turnovers through­out the game.

In the end the girls de­feated Lock­ing­ton by six goals. B Grade — LBU 39 def Colbo 37 In B grade, Locky gave the Colbo girls a good run for their money, and sadly we couldn’t come away with the win.

The girls were de­ter­mined to keep up with their op­po­nents.

Some very ac­cu­rate long bombs from Jam Lowe and the tire­less work of Milly Hughes in de­fence helped nar­row the score.

Mul­ti­ple turnovers from both sides kept the crowd in­ter­ested right up un­til the fi­nal siren.

Kris­ten Moroney had a rip­per game show­ing off her ver­sa­til­ity in goals and mid­court, earn­ing her­self best on for the game.

Me­gan and Han­nah also had ex­cel­lent games, prov­ing that they’re both “Fuller” amaz­ing net­ball skills.

It was great to get another win on the board. A Grade — Colbo 68 def LBU 22 Com­ing off a strong win last week, the A grade team con­tin­ued that form into the first quar­ter of the game against LBU, jump­ing out to an im­pres­sive 20-2 first quar­ter.

Ef­forts from cap­tain Bry­die Law­ford cre­ated plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to con­vert in at­tack.

Ge­orgie Rodger was also dy­namic through the mid­court and took some great in­ter­cepts out of de­fence.

Lou Dupuy was ever so strong and con­sis­tent in GS again, show­ing great di­rec­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion for young­ster Mardi Ryan to work into the game.

An all-round team ef­fort led to a con­vinc­ing 46 goal win. Foot­ball Thirds — LBU 10.4 Colbo 6.3 (39)

Colbo con­tin­ued to take risks and run the ball through the mid­dle of the ground but couldn’t cap­i­talise on their for­ward drives.

Cooper Hamil­ton was a ball mag­net through the mid­dle of the ground, win­ning plenty of hard ball and us­ing the ball mov­ing for­ward.

Will Brown was sen­sa­tional again in de­fence, beat­ing his di­rect op­po­nent and re­bound­ing strongly in tran­si­tion.

Hugh Hamil­ton found plenty of his own ball up the ground but also pro­vided a dan­ger­ous tar­get deep for­ward.

Other bet­ter play­ers in­cluded Darcy Brown whose pres­sure was ter­rific and Sam Ryan whose ball skills were elite.

Re­serves — Colbo 6.10 (46) def LBU 6.4 (40)

The re­serves re­ceived a well de­served shock, only just scrap­ing over line against a fired up Lock­ing­ton out­fit.

Af­ter a dom­i­nant month, Hop­pers re­ceived their first chal­lenge of the sea­son.

Be­ing pushed to the fi­nal siren by the tena­cious Cats.

Af­ter a slow start the Hop­pers were able to weather the storm and rally to the real lead by eight points at three quar­ter time.

Af­ter a hotly con­tested fi­nal quar­ter, it was the com­posed Hop­pers who were able to con­trol the play and hit the score­board, run­ning the game out six points in front.

Tim Hill was ter­rific again across half back for the Hop­pers, re­bound­ing ev­ery­thing that came his way.

Luke Hill pro­vided a cool head across half back, as did Stephen Tuo­hey who pro­vided plenty of drive in tran­si­tion.

Other bet­ter play­ers in­cluded Bubsy who marked strongly on the lead and Char­lie Tay­lor who won plenty of con­tested ball through the mid­dle of the ground.

Se­niors — Colbo 14.16 (100) def LBU 9.8 (62)

The se­niors en­dured a great chal­lenge from a young, spir­ited Cats line up, even­tu­ally run­ning out thirty eight point victors.

Lock­ing­ton’s pres­sure and in­ten­sity around the con­test were elite early, tak­ing the Hop­pers by sur­prise.

Af­ter half time the Hop­pers lifted their in­ten­sity and were able to rein in the Cats and hit the score­board, tak­ing a nine point lead into three quar­ter time.

The fi­nal quar­ter was all green and gold as the Hop­pers piled on 5.8 to the Cats 1.3 to stretch the fi­nal mar­gin to thirty eight points.

Hadleigh Sirett was enor­mous in the ruck for the Hop­pers, pro­vid­ing first use to the mids and us­ing the ball with pre­ci­sion around the ground.

Damien Car­mody con­tin­ued his dom­i­nance over op­po­si­tion for­wards, de­fend­ing well and of­fer­ing plenty of drive in tran­si­tion.

Ryan Hon buried five ma­jors and dished off sev­eral more while Sauce Ezard’s tack­ling pres­sure cre­ated op­por­tu­ni­ties for the Hop­pers small for­wards.

Other bet­ter play­ers in­cluded skip­per David Price who was measly in de­fence and Mitch Bright who col­lected plenty of ball through the mid­dle of the ground.

Colbo’s A Grade Net­ballers with the ‘Net Set Go’ pro­gram par­tic­i­pants be­fore the match against LBU.
