Un­der 10s braved mis­er­able con­di­tions

Mansfield Courier - - COURIER SCOREBOARD - By SCOTT DUN­STAN

CON­DI­TIONS were mis­er­able at the Lord’s ground on Satur­day morn­ing for the Un­der 10s football, though more so for the brave spec­ta­tors and coach­ing staff.

The De­mons were able to get the first score on the board, with some great football from Seb Birthisel, Seth Dean and Chad Turner.

With goals hard to come by for the Hawks, Max Ma­honey, Harry Pur­cell and cap­tain Asha Foubis­ter played great de­fen­sive football all day.

In the sec­ond half the rain seemed to get heav­ier and both teams worked hard to move the ball for­ward.

Bray­den Van Win­den, Dan Young, and Cody Az­zopardi’s skills were fan­tas­tic in the wet, which made it hard for the Hawks, but Paddy Dun­stan and Con­nor Healy dis­played great ef­fort right to the fi­nal siren in a hard fought match.

The sea­son is near­ing the end with only one game un­til the grand fi­nal.
