Play high­lights con­tin­ued im­prove­ment from ju­niors

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT - By SCOTT DUN­STAN

THERE was plenty of sun­shine at the Lords Ground on Satur­day morn­ing for the un­der 10s football.

The De­mons got off to a good start with some strong football from their mid field­ers.

Ash­ton Dean, AJ Thom­son and Ben Rear­don worked well to­gether to move the ball and give their for­wards the op­por­tu­nity to get some early scores on the board.

This meant the Hawks’ de­fence was un­der plenty of pres­sure and had to work hard.

Kai Longstaff, Han­nah Ber­ri­man and Con­nor Healy were solid and made the job dif­fi­cult for the De­mons for­wards.

As the game went on there was some great pas­sages of play, high­light­ing the on­go­ing big im­prove­ment in skill from both teams.

Hunter Reeve, Dan Young and Paddy Buchanan fought hard all day for the De­mons, while Jimmy Christo­pher and Paddy Dun­stan linked up well to­gether.

In the last quar­ter goals were hard to come by with both teams show­ing strong de­fen­sive play.

Spencer Tan­ner and Indi Ni­cholls were good for the De­mons while Hawks cap­tain Bob Ritchie and ruck­man Harry Pur­cell moved the ball cleanly down to their full for­ward Car­son Wein­gott, who was able to take a spec­tac­u­lar mark and go back and kick a ma­jor score for the Hawks.

See all teams this week at the main oval for the grand fi­nal, mark­ing the end of the ju­nior football sea­son for another year.
