ROUND 3

GLENUNGA v PLYMPTON

 

A GRADE

 

GLENUNGA 13.15 d PLYMPTON 8.8

 

Goal Kickers: H. Prosser 3, S. Pollock 3, T. Butterworth 2, L. Bennett 2, J. Schmidt, M. McMahon, T. Bielby
Best Players: M. McMahon, T. Butterworth, L. Bowman, A. Haren, T. Beard

 

Glenunga moved to the top of the ladder with a solid 37-point win at home. After a tight first quarter, the Rams gradually exerted control, extending its lead each quarter. Although missing James Wundke, Tom beard carried the ruckwork for most of the game, dominating the hit outs as well as enjoying plenty of possessions around the ground. Alex Haren and Tom Bielby took advantage of the ruckwork to be influential while Michael McMahon gave a master class across half forward, with support from Harry Prosser with 3 goals. Nick Wundke also provided a strong, aggressive target up forward. Tom Butterworth again provided plenty of run from his wing and will be missed while he completes school footy duties. Luke Bowman played his best game for the club thus far while Jack Harford was cool in defence. Jack is also playing a key role in the outstanding communication between our back 6 which is making us a difficult team to score against. Dylan Smith also had his best game for the year, winning his wing convincingly.

 

With other results going in favour of the Rams, Glenunga is now a game and percentage clear at the top of the table. Next weeks games against Flinders Park, (which with Portland and possibly Golden Grove look to be the teams to beat) will give the best indication so far as to the Rams chances.  At least at this stage on form to date, a finals berth looks likely.

 

B GRADE

 

PLYMPTON 10.10 d GLENUNGA 8.12

 

Goal Kickers: J. Orken 2, D. Zecchel, T. Campbell, M. Bristow, T. Mitchell, R. Kamenic, K. Smith
Best Players: T. Slater, H. Downard, B. Schulz, D. Pittman, R. Kamenic

 

 The B Grade was unlucky to lose this one, only being headed in the last 10 minutes of the game. After a slow start, scores were level at half time and the rams lead by a goal going into the last. In the final analysis, the Plympton full forward with 7 goals was the difference.

 

The B Grade comp seems quite uneven at this grade, with several teams having big wins. Finders Park had an easy win over Gepps Cross, which suggests the Rams will be tested again next week,

 

C GRADE

 

PLYMPTON 19.15 d GLENUNGA 2.6

 

Goal Kickers: G. Tellis, L. Cobain
Best Players: S. Hubbert, Z. Strathearn, S. Czabayski, J. Makestas, E. Knights

 

The C grade went into this game with considerable confidence after their convincing win last week only to be completely outplayed by a very competent Plympton. The strong tackling and precision kicking of Plympton was worthy of a much higher grade, and once they took control after the first quarter the Rams had no answer.
