MONBULK JUNIOR FOOTBALL
Freezing conditions greeted the first teams of the Monbulk Junior Football Club, but the icy conditions didn’t deter an eager bunch of Under 9s. It turned into a glorious winter’s day for remaining teams with spectators needing sunglasses and hats.
UNDER 9
Playing against an older team and minus-two degree conditions gave the team a slow start. The kids started warming up and played great passages by getting in front, running with the ball and kicking it long. Well done.
Awards: H. Brooks, S. McIntosh, E. White, A. Sproat, B. Hennig.
UNDER 10 MAROON
The guys ran and linked up well today, we worked on hitting more targets and hunting the footy. The team is improving weekly and are not far away from a four-quarter consistent effort.
Awards: N. Seamer, F. Clunie, I. Mullinder, J. Monro, D. English.
UNDER 10 GOLD
A bit of a tough day. Tested by a physical team which put them off their game; the positive is that they have heaps of improvement left. Keep working hard, it will happen.
Awards: A. Hylton-Stewart, H. Piesley, R. Kay, C. Henderson, C. Seamer.
UNDER 11 – bye.
UNDER 12 GIRLS
All-round great team effort for the whole four quarters. The focus this week was pressure around the footy, playing in front, leading and timing. Basic kicking, marking and handballing have improved immensely, which is really evident in the way they are playing.
Awards: M. Laven, N. Seamer, J. McDermott, J. Woodgate, M. Hooper.
UNDER 12
A bit sluggish to start saw the behind earlier a much improved rest of the game was pleasing to see. Looking forward to a week’s rest.
