Crows in dom­i­nant vic­to­ries


Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT - Danielle Jarvis

THE St Clair Crows dom­i­nated over the week­end with all three of their fi­nals-qual­i­fy­ing teams go­ing straight through to their re­spec­tive grand fi­nals.

The Crows un­der-11s, un­der-15s and un­der-17s all won the right to move straight to the grand fi­nal, all of which will be held at Spot­less Sta­dium next month.

The un­der-17s dom­i­nated Cam­den with an im­pres­sive 90-20 win at Gipps Rd Re­serve on Sun­day.

Coach Richard O’Keefe said the win was largely due to the qual­ity game of the back six (play­ers).

“In the first half they played our style of football, the right struc­ture,” O’Keefe said. “They com­peted very well. They played the best brand of football I’ve seen all sea­son and that led the way.

“It all came from the back six and from there the rest of the team gath­ered mo­men­tum.”

The coach said de­spite the high score, their ac­cu­racy was a lit­tle off.

“We an­ni­hi­lated them to be hon­est,” O’Keefe said. “The score was 77-1 at the end of the first half.

“In the first quar­ter we were up four goals and two be­hinds to noth­ing.

“In the sec­ond quar­ter we kicked a fur­ther seven goals and nine be­hinds – we had shock­ing kick­ing ac­cu­racy.”

The win­ner of next week’s Emu Plains-Cam­den match will play the Crows.


The St Clair Crows un­der-17s side romped home with a 90-20 win over Cam­den.
