Eels still alive in footy finals
ELLENBROOK played away from home in C3 grade amateur football at the weekend, with league and reserves in a semifinal.
Reserve grade battled against Piara Waters, only to lose their first game of the year by 19 points. Coach Kevin Andrews’ stern address at three-quarter time lifted the players’ spirits, but it wasn’t enough to win. The final score was 10.8 (68) to 7.7 (49).
The league team started strongly against Snesa in a fast-paced, physical game that featured a high skill level from both sides.
Going into the second half down by four goals, club captain Matt Craig led his team in a resurgence to come within just a few points of the lead, but unfortunately this was not enough to win the final. The final score was 14.6 (90) to 9.10 (64).
The loss wasn’t what Ellenbrook wanted, especially marking Duncan Roger’s 150 club games, but all three sides now host a home game this Saturday, with the winners going into next week’s grand final.
The colts start at 10.30am against Jandakot, reserves at 12.30pm against Cottesloe and the league side at 2.30pm against Dianella Morley.
Duncan Roger played his 150th game.
