This week the boys had yet another tough and physical game playing the Chidlow cougars at our home ground. With a few blokes out with injuries and the man flu scraping 22 together was a challenging task but managed to get to line.
Austin, Beavo, Dylan and Brock out, Tyson, Nick, Andy Freeman in for his first game of the year and Cam back into the side after his first-round injury.
First quarter underway and we started a little slow, Chidlow kicking the first until the boys found their feet, Tyson and Pep kicking the next couple to gain back the ascendency.
Big Keefey decided to take a nap in the middle of the ground but with a quick spell on the side line was back out in the ruck. Chidlow continued to come but with a few goals late to Musto, Tristan and another to Pep on the siren we were up by five goals at the first change.
Throughout the second quarter there were some big hits on both sides and some good hard footy, just before the half time siren big Zac and Dev gave each other a Liverpool kiss ending with a couple split heads. There was claret everywhere on the sidelines and as we cleaned up the mess Musto decided to join them courtesy of a nasty pirouette. As we limped into half time the Roos had a handy six goal lead.
After a well-earned rest and some patch work the boys came back out after half time slotting the first goal with in seconds, then the Peps show started with Rhys kicking goal after goal to help cement the roos lead.
In the back line ‘mono’ (aka rhino) took a big hit but bounced back after a few seconds on the ground, Dev decided to it was time for a spew after a Barbie special and Kizza hobbled off after a nasty knock to the knee, seven goals up at the last change. Fourth quarter and the Roos continued working hard, we had broken the spirit of the Cougars a comfortable ten goal win.
Mundaring Celebrations Best on ground went to Rhys aka Peps with his 7-goal effort. The Inn’s 2nd best was Luke with a great run through the middle, Brookwood Realty 3rd best went to Tyson ‘hammer’ for his classy display.
A1 caravans 4th best was Lindsey ‘lids’, Mr Magic’s 5th best went to big man Keefey for his efforts in the ruck with the peep show given to Michael ‘Micky’ Italiano!
Pep’s seven on the day, Tyson three with Tristan the only other multiple goal scorer with two, singles to Ando, Musto, Hamps, Mick, Kizza, Marty and Chook.
Thank you to all the supporters that came down and especially all the volunteers that helped with the bar, canteen, running water and boundary.
The boys earned a well needed bye to overcome some soreness ready to take on the young Bullsbrook saints
Carn the Roos!
