The nine boys that travelled to Dudley Cornell park were quite pleased that Dimboola were able to field a team so they could at least, play one game together in 2017. With a slight breeze and sunshine, it was a tremendous day for football. The students from both teams really enjoyed the contest, with a couple of Murtoa students offering to play for Dimboola to even up the sides.
The first quarter was a very tight struggle, with Lachlan Weidemann kicking Dimboola’s first goal of the game. He played for Dimoola until Deacan hurt his ankle, and then he returned to the Murtoa side.
After the first quarter, Murtoa was able to kick away with a majority of the students having a shot on goal. Tuskan was amazing up forward, kicking 4 goals in one quarter.
Lachlan Weidemann was terrific, providing a great link up through the middle and using his skills to hurt the opposition. Blake Downer was incredible in the backline, rebounding consistently and constantly showing great sportsmanship towards both Murtoa and Dimboola students. Blake received the MVP award for his positive enthusiasm and effort on the day. I was so happy with the spirit shown by the Murtoa students and the enjoyment they received from playing with their friends.
Murtoa 8 goals 16 points
Dimboola 3 goals 5 points
Best players: Blake, Lachlan & Tuskan
Nathan Sachse (coach)
