Kiewa out­mus­cled Beech­worth

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A sec­ond quar­ter where they man­aged only a point while Kiewa posted three goals, two be­hinds was the dif­fer­ence in the game.

Three goals ten be­hinds was not the re­ward against an ac­cu­rate op­po­nent who booted only six goals three.

L Ja­cob­ss­son got two while P. Voight snagged the other.

They joined A.Walker, F. Ja­cob­s­son,and C Ma­her among the best while T Webb was best on ground in a very even team per­for­mance.

The un­der 14 con­tinue to im­press and show what a well dis­ci­plined and drilled side can ac­com­plish. It is dif­fi­cult to pick out the best as ev­ery­one is con­tribut­ing.

Scalzo, Wilkin­son and Hirst con­tinue to pro­vide a solid de­fence while mid­field­ers and for­wards ben­e­fit shar­ing the goals around. Mom with six was out­stand­ing, while Ross and Parkin­son both got three and Pfahlert was the only other mul­ti­ple scorer.

North, Shed­den, Man­derville and Mace scored sin­gles, as did O Meara and Pronk who both fea­tured among the best.

On the courts, the Bushies bat­tled hard at ev­ery level but once again could not taste vic­tory on their home courts against bet­ter cre­den­tialed op­po­si­tion. With the courts like skat­ing rinks and a tem­per­a­ture that made it dif­fi­cult to ex­e­cute ba­sic skills the play­ers again had to fo­cus on their devel­op­ment.

There are a few games next week; A, B and C grades which should be close.

If A grade take their best to Wodonga it would be fit­ting that they fin­ish the sea­son with a win to rec­og­nize their re­silience all year.

B and C grade will also have to show their best but if con­di­tions suit they have shown that they com­pete un­til the very end and could taste vic­tory.

The un­der 18 also showed their ef­fort un­til the end match­ing Kiewa in the last quar­ter.

The un­der 15 and un­der 13 will again face se­ri­ous com­pe­ti­tion but can take com­fort that they are de­vel­op­ing im­proved skills and sys­tems which will be valu­able for their fu­ture.

It is a pity that they will fin­ish the sea­son away from home and will not be fea­tur­ing in the fi­nals but all teams can be proud of their ef­forts and par­tic­i­pa­tion.

They will be able to cel­e­brate a sea­son where the score­board does cer­tainly not re­flect the game.
