LEAGUE MATCH REPORT (Round 16)

The league side unfortunately went down to 2nd place Wanneroo on the weekend but I was pleased with our guy’s performance especially in the first half. We started the game extremely well applying great pressure to Wanneroo taking a 3 goal lead into quarter time. Again in the second quarter we held our own taking a slender lead into the half time break.

But unfortunately after half time we couldn’t maintain the pressure and intensity we displayed in the first half and continued to turn the footy over with skill errors. Again our young bodies gave out to the more seasoned conditioned bodies of Wanneroo who had several players playing straight out of the WAFL system.

But again we did show we can take it up to any team in B grade competition for a period of time and with a further 2 games of match experience and a solid pre-season under the belt next year the 2016 season looks very promising.

On the weekend we had Michael “Fryzy” Chandler play his 150 games for the club which now makes him legible for Life membership. It is a fantastic achievement and for a guy that has given his heart and soul for the football club, life membership would be well deserved. Michael is one of the key reasons why Kingsway now finds itself in B grade football as his continued leadership amongst the group and his influence with the younger generation has been nothing short of first class. Well done and well earnt Fryzy.

We also played another 1st gamer on the weekend in young Gareth Magee (Dinko) who prior to this year has never played Aussie rules football or had even kicked a football. Dinko has been incredible in the way he has picked the skills of the game and has been the most improved player I have seen come through the Reserves system this year. His attitude and desire to play at the highest level sets himself apart from others.

Well done to the Colts and Reserves on their wins on the weekend and again good to all grades for the upcoming fixture against Whitford.

RESERVES MATCH REPORT (Round 16)

Everything leading up to this game against Wanneroo had it challenges, starting from selections on Thursday night (where at one stage we only had 17) through to the pre-game warm up which was well below our best.

Back in Round 7 our lack of intensity & desire to compete resulted in a 12 goal loss up at the Showgrounds. Fair to say we had a bit to play for this time around.

From the opening bounce the ‘Teal Roos’ dominated the game all over the ground. The midfield group of Stretch, AJ and Fish led by Hoppy continually won the ball, which in turn gave our forwards plenty of opportunities. Bakes is improving every week and was unlucky not to feature in the awards.

Our defence was solid all day, with Ante the general in our back line being well supported by Nick and Matt Trichet and Macca.

Overall our ability to win the ball, use the ball and spread allowed us to come away with a 7 goal win.

Thanks to Tags, J Mac and Blakey coming up from the colts, Barrel and Ethan from the 3rds and Fish for putting their hands up to help out this week.

Congratulations also go to Jamie Wynne on receiving ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award for the Subiaco District.

COLTS MATCH REPORT (Round 16)

Although not our best performance we did win which is all we need to do for the rest of the year. This week is the big one. Win and we finish top 3.

THIRDS MATCH REPORT (Round 16)

The weekends game saw us come up against the 3rd placed Collegians in what was to be a very important game of the season, as a win would have nearly guaranteed us top spot, but coming away with a loss has now allowed Warnbro to level us on points with Collegians and Forrestdale only 1 game behind.

Collegians were able to set up there zones and structures all over the ground and on the very skinny Collegians oval, it restricted our run and carry and ability to spread all over the ground.

However with all this being said and done we had our chances at times throughout the game but we weren’t able to capitalise on the scoreboard and went down by 12 points in the end.

The season is shaping to be an intriguing one and with 2 games left against the 5th placed Noranda and 6th placed Brentwood Booragoon, it’s important that we take momentum into the finals with 2 wins and claim top spot, giving us a first home final…..but in order to do his we need to get back to playing Kingsway football!!!!
