Round 7 – Saturday 25th May 2019

Under 13’s: 
Falcons 69 – Aldinga 2
Goal Kickers: L. Roberts 4, L. Sorella 2, S. Burbridge 2, R. Mayr, K. Dooley
Best Players: L. Roberts, J. Carlier, B. Jeffries, C. Johns, S. Burbridge, T. Hodgson
Coach: Craig Bunworth 
With the disappointment of not kicking the dew off due to being submerged under Lake Flagstaff, the boys battled on regardless. Playing the SHARKS in these conditions was a big ask for the team but putting five goals straight on the board in the opening quarter displayed real character. All 22 put in the effort and I’ve sure learnt something from the game. Unfortunately, Joshy Lees came away from the contest with a fractured arm and will miss some footy but was around the boys at training regardless. Look forward to Christies Beach this weekend in what is our biggest challenge yet. TOGETHER WE SOAR.

Under 15’s: 
Falcons 129 – Aldinga 6
Goal Kickers: H. Lemmey 5, J. Williams 3, C. Newall 2, T. Brockhurst 2, A. Hill, J. Brennan, B. Richman, R. Stone, T. Halliday, J. Dooley
Best Players: T. Brockhurst, H. Lemmey, J. Dooley, T. Halliday, N. Spurr, D. Kelsey
Coach: Paul Hollands 
First wet game of the season which was a challenge the boys were up to and despite the opposition we played some excellent team footy as well as giving some more u14s a look at Saturday footy as part of their development. We now set ourselves for a big game this Saturday.

Under 17.5’s: 
Falcons 114 – Aldinga 3
Goal Kickers: B. Burbridge 4, R. Galliford 3, T. Smith 2, K. Vanzetta 2, B. Bope, J. Mayr, D. Henty-Smith, B. Aldridge, B. Pearse, J. Little
Best Players: B. Burbridge, J. Little, J. Mayr, K. Vanzetta, T. Warren, R. Galliford
Coach: Marty Clifton
17.5 lads played a pretty high standard of footy in obviously extremely wet conditions. I told them that it wouldn’t rain but I didn’t tell them about the monsoonal conditions. There are some promising signs with individuals starting to understand their roles. A tough challenge ahead against Christie’s this week will be another tick in the box.

Falcons 60 – Aldinga 0

Coach: Kym Dooley
Despite the unfavourable conditions the B-grade rolled out and made no mistakes by hand or foot. We ended up with a ten goal victory keeping Aldinga scoreless. All played well.
Oh wait they forfeited

Falcons 180  – Aldinga 9
Goal Kickers: M. Johnson 4, B. Rossi 4, R. Mountford 4, S. Smith 3, D. Webb 2, S. Osmond 2, D. Kearsley, Z. Cavouras, B. Patterson, M. Renfrey, S. Tharaldsen, A. Fisher, D. Mitchell, B. Heyward-Ferors
Best Players: M. Johnson, B. Rossi, C. Puiatti, Z. Cavouras, R. Mountford, B. Patterson
Coach: Darren Vanzetta
A-grade has had a couple of good positive weeks with easy wins on the scoreboard, but this was our chance to fine-tune structures and game plan, video review was good to go through even despite the scoreboard. Now for a big test the next couple of games starting with Christie’s this week at home. Let’s get as many of the Falcon Army there as possible to support the boys. See you there.
