Round 6 U13 Orange

U13 Orange v Balgowlah Suns

Round 6

It was another gorgeous Autumn afternoon, this time at Balgowlah. Our mighty Cannons were up against the ladder leaders, the Balgowlah Suns.

From the first whistle to the last the Suns were all over us. They were a physical team and outplayed us across the park. In the first quarter our boys were competitive and were only trailing by a couple of goals. Unfortunately, from the second quarter on the Suns pulled away to seal the win with the equalisation rule invoked at the end of the third quarter.

There were however some terrific individual performances. William, Jasper and Felix played some great defence in the backs. Damien, Ethan and Cooper played solidly in the centre and wings. Kaelan took a great mark to prevent a Suns’ goal and Alex H was strong in the ruck. Damien had kicked two behinds. Denver had also kicked one behind and our only goal. As always, a big thanks to Charlie, Leo and Ben for helping out again.

Despite the final score line, our boys did show that they can play some good footy and move the ball forward, particularly when they support each other, create opportunities and never give up. Well done boys!
