go the Villains.....

Upwey take the points despite strong performance from Villains

Our home match against Upwey Tecoma saw the Villains fight hard all day but in the end just couldn’t get over the line.

Spectators were treated to numerous displays of quality team play by both sides. Thanks to excellent passing by hand and foot the ball was often delivered quickly into the Villain’s forward line only to be repelled by the determined Upwey defenders.
The away side got off to a good start and held a four goal lead as the siren sounded to end the first quarter.

The second term saw the Villains fight back and win the quarter, kicking 3 goals 4 behinds to Upwey’s 2 goals 3 behinds.
With the Villains still having every chance of victory , the third quarter continued the monumental struggle. 10 minutes into the 3rd term and the Villains got to within a couple of kicks of the lead. But a few late Upwey goals took the gloss off a great effort by the “Green and Gold”.

As the final quarter got underway the Villains still had a sniff of victory and with their ’never say die’ attitude fought hard to the end.

Best players - Lucas Russell, Tony Carr, Leigh Fisher, Rod Grotaers, Brain Heard and Richie Timms with Brodie ’Biscuit’ Arnott also deserving of special mention.

The Villains next match sees us head to Croydon North on Sunday 29th June in what will be a tough encounter, but the boys are keen as mustard to take the four points.
