That was the week that Was – V Karingal

This week we congratulate Ben Landry on his 150th and MEFNC Life Membership game.

Langers started with the Junior Club in 1998, making his Senior debut in the last round of 2009.

An accomplished left footer and hard working mid fielder, he missed the ’13 and ’14 seasons, whilst playing in Queensland. He returned in 2015 and has missed just 7 games in nearly 6 full seasons with the Redlegs. Good luck this week (Benjamin) Langers !

Last week we took on Karingal and took the points in all games.
Once again in blustery conditions, the Unders won narrowly. The first quarter was even but we kicked with the wind in the 2nd and held a 3 goal lead at 1/2 time. We led by just 3 points at the last change and in a hard fought final term the boys hung on to a 5 point win.
Best were Max Rea, Jimmy Logan, Smally (Back from the Seniors), Oscar, Ricey & Jacko.

The Reserves led by 5 goals at 1/4 time with the wind and by 6 at 1/2 time, restricting Karingal to just 1 goal. A 7.12 to 0.1 last half saw us back on the winners list by 89.
Nugget booted 3 and Wetters and Buzz two apiece. Other better players were Josh Curren, Chesty, Ben Whitfort and Smaley.

The Senior game started as a low scoring affair 1.6 to 2.0 in the 1st and we trailed by 3 points at 1/2 time. We kicked 6 goals to 1 in the 3rd to lead by 22 at 3/4 time. We kicked the first couple of the last to extend the margin to 5+ goals, before they kicked the last couple to reduce the margin to 20 points.
Gorms booted 3 & Cappy & McKinnon a couple each, with other best players being Lombo, Stricko, Heasa, Lill & Tenno.

Another big game this week against the Dogs as we look to retain the Vosti Shield.
