Canada Bay Cannons Orange Under 13 – 2 Vs Mosman Swans
Round 3, 28th April 2019
The Under 13 Div 2 team came up against a very fast and skilful team from Mosman Swans at St Lukes. Based on the quality of play I think the Swans are worthy of elevation to Division 1 as they demonstrated great team work, foot and hand skills, tackling, goal kicking accuracy and supreme running capacity.While we lost to a much better team, it was great to see our performance improve throughout the match. We nearly matched their scoring the last quarter. Most importantly the game was played with good sportsmanship and spirit.
Special thanks goes to Charles and Leo for playing up to help fill out our team. I would also like to thank Mosman Swans for providing two players for the second half. It was interesting to see how competitive the game became when two strong running players from the Swans joined the Cannons.
With our full team returning next week, we should be able to regain the running momentum we saw last year and the team work needed to manage the full size ground.
Damien and Ethan deserve special acknowledgement for their continuous pressure and attack on the ball across all four quarters. Pressure on the opposition creates opportunities for us to control the play. In second half we scored four goals after putting Mosman under pressure.
Good to see the team still smiling after the match.
