Crows in dominant victories
THREE TEAMS IN GRAND FINALS
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.
