Final score: d 4.6 (30) v 4.4 (28)
------- Game Summary ------
The Pups made the trip to Fish Creek this week in what later proved to be the game of the day but they went down by just 2 points in the last quarter.
The first quarter started slow and slippery with Tarquin doing well in the ruck. The pups worked hard and successfully held Fish Creek . Max worked hard across half back and Cale was strong at full back against tough opposition. Isaac was effective on the wing and Billy managed to score one major.
The second quarter was similar to the first however many sloppy errors and dropped marks cost the pups some opportunities which Fish Creek capitalised on. Bailey’s goal from a free kick was a stand out.
The third quarter got away to a strong start and the momentum seemed to start to go the pups way. Jai took a nice mark and went back to kick his first. The backs did well again lead by Riley along with Jack pushing everything back our way. Nick was having a great quarter and Connor really turned it on getting in and under every pack. This helped keep Fish Creek scoreless and the ball in our half for most of the quarter. Jarred roved to he packs well up forward. We put on 1 goal and three points to be only down by one.
In the last quarter the wind picked up to Fish Creek’s advantage. This didn't deter the boys who got off to a great start with Tarquin and Connor at it again along with Jai. Zane took a tough mark on the 50 then Nando kicked to Matt who had been kept quiet. He managed to kick a goal to get us in front. It looked like the boys had it in the bag, however reminiscent of last year’s final, Fishy didn't let up the pressure and sealed the win with a goal in the last 3 mins. It was a hard fought battle to the end.
