Hallam SC 1st XVIII played Sale CC at Morwell Football Club on Wednesday May 8th.
Final scores were Hallam 14. 5. 89 def. Sale 10. 8. 68
The standard of football was high and Sale had a better start than we did. Our second quarter was very good and we were able to break them open with good rebound football.
We went into the main break with a healthy lead but lost Mitch Dyer for the rest of the match so were 2 players down as Sale played with 7 on the bench.
Our second half was a battle and Sale won the final 2 quarters. Our contested ball, intensity and speed were all good however we did turn over the ball around the ground with poor disposals by foot.
The boys dug deep and came out on top. Better players were Nick McPherson, Jackson Bianco, Jake Cruikshank, Jack Farmer, Jack Soroczynski and Adam Butler. Taylor Joyce and Anthony Sigeti both kicked 3 goals each.
Round 2 has Hallam playing Box Hill at Shepley Oval in Dandenong on Wednesday May 22nd. The day will involve a double-header with our 2nd XVIII playing a curtain raiser at 10.00am before the 1st XVIII game at 12.30pm.
