Last week we ventured to Pines and came away with wins in all Footy & Netball games.
Unfortunately the day started on a terrible note with the serious injury to Pines U19 player Kadel Key early in the 2nd quarter.
Well done to the medical teams from both Clubs for their great work. The MEFNC wishes Kadel a speedy recovery.
The Reserves trailed by a goal at 1/4 time but hit back with 5 goals to 2 in the 2nd term.
We led by 20 at 3/4 time and ended up winning by 27.
Nugget booted 3 and Stricko 2, with better players being Josh Curren, back from injury, Michael & Chris Cleary, Sam Howell, Ben Whitfort and Riley Thorpe.
The Seniors took on top of the table Pines and got away to a great start with the only 3 goals of the first quarter.
Pines hit back with 5 goals to 1 to take a narrow half time lead.
In a tight 3rd quarter the lead changed a couple of times and we went into the last 3 points up.
We dominated the first half of the last with 5 goals before late Pines goals reduced the final margin to 8 points.
Jim Anwyl was great all day and other better players were Dunney (2), Gilly, Lomba, Barto & Lefty.
