Scores: Vampires 7.15.57 def St Bedes/Mentone 1.6.12

In windy conditions, the Vampires used the run and carry game to outstanding effect for most of the game to record a convincing win against big opposition that towered over our undermanned team. With 8 players out leaving only 14 available, a big thanks goes to Fletch and U12 boys Chris, Angus and Tom who helped us out and all played great.

The team spirit was typified by Kai who was electric with his in and under work in the packs that inspired the team to some amazing acts of teamwork. On no less than three occasions players selflessly handballed in the goalsquare to let their mate kick the goal. Our players versatility was on show too – Jem was hugely impactful rucking for most of the day due to Sonny being restricted to the forward line with illness where he wreaked havoc and peppered the goals, whilst Caalan was unpassable in defense.

Best Players: Kai, Caalan, Harry Taylor, Sonny, Jem, Fletcher, Mavi
