Benalla Ensign

Under-14 Bulldogs

-

Our first trip to Mansfield and we were greeted with another warm day.

With only one player still injured from the last game, we had a large bench of players, and it was needed as Mansfield had us chasing them for most of the game.

Thankfully they weren’t kicking straight and despite 20 scoring shots, they had only kicked six goals to half-time.

It was late in the second quarter when we eventually kicked our first goal and all the play shifted to our end of the ground for the next few minutes, but we couldn’t capitalise on our chances.

We started strong in the third quarter scoring early, but Mansfield lifted a gear and kicked away. A hard tackle to one of our players at the third-minute mark of the last quarter saw the rest of the game abandoned while we waited for an ambulance.

Thank you to Dirk Ring and Mansfield’s medical officer who took great care with our player while they waited for the ambulance to arrive. Goalkicker­s: Oscar Beaton 2.

Best Players: Connor Breheny, Angus Richardson, Ryder Robertson, Nate Nicholas, Max Beaton and Lucas Ham.
