CGFC BEST PLAYERS:
It was a big game against rivals Parkdale playing away. A disappointing game against De LA Salle the previous week and the boys needed to respond.
The game started and Parkdale were a little more sharper and cleaner with their skills. However we got better as the quarter progressed. Parkdale hit the post twice and we could have been trailing by a little more at quarter time than 1 point.
The second quarter we had more control and structure around our play and were playing to our strength’s. Our backline were holding tight and providing some rebound. At half time we led by 6 points.
Coach Nathan Beaumont made some positional changes for the 3rd quarter and paid off. Kennedy at full forward caused headaches for Parkdale and kicked some early quarter goals. Wainwright who was applying great pressure throughout the game kicked his second goal after a finger tip mark and kicked a long goal on the run. Another goal to Dorevitch and we had Parkdale on the ropes. The last 8 mins of the quarter we lost our way a little and didn’t have the same intensity. However at ¾ time we led by 26 points.
The last quarter we had control and kicked away. Spielvogel dominated and kicked 2 goals with Ball and Hedger chipping in with one apiece. Caulfield winning by 39 points
Every player made a significant contribution towards the win.
