The Week that Was – The Low Down – Anzac Day

A great turn out on Anzac Day as we took on Mornington.

Thanks to the Mornington people who stuck around at the end of the day and to those Redlegs who assisted on the day – Much appreciated.


The U/19’s set the scene with a solid win.
We led narrowly at qtr time and by a couple of goals at half time. A 2.5 to 1.3 3rd term saw the lead out to 4 goals. In the last we kicked the first 4 goals, before they kicked the last couple – Well done on a solid 35 point win!

Best were Smally, Jacko, Fewster (2), Housey (2), Hawk & Ricey.

In drizzling rain the Reserves game failed to reach any great heights with Mornington kicking 2.3 to 0.2 in the 1st half. We got our game going in the 2nd half as conditions improved, kicking 9.4 to 1.0 to win by 39.

Ben Whitfort kicked a couple to be in the best, along with Clears, Trent, Kenty & Sam Howell.
Congrats to Groota and wife Emma on the birth of their first child, Xavier.

The Seniors’ inaccurate kicking for goal kept Mornington in the game as we went in at ½ time leading 5.10 to 5.1, however a dominant 10.10 to 3.0 2nd half, saw the boys win by 10 goals and retain the Vosti Shield.

JV booted 7 and best players were Shane Tennant (Anzac Day Medal), Langers, Heasa, Harps, Lambie & Lill.
