Scores: Zebras 10.1.61 v Vampires 5.6.36
The Teelow U12 team were looking forward to testing themselves against one of the fancied premiership teams in the U12 Maroon division.
The boys forgot to run out down the race at the start of the game and before we knew it, the Zebras had four goals on the board.
After a motivational speech from the coaches at halftime, the boys were able to get themselves back in the game through some good work through the middle. The forwards were able to capitalise on this, kicking three goals to zip to be only five points down at the main break.
The third quarter was an arm wrestle until the Zebras were able to break the game open with a five-goal burst.
The final quarter rounded an intense and see-sawing battle, however, the boys were just not able to convert all their hard work.
The team aren’t far off the best in the comp – 11 scoring shots a piece show a team that can match it with any team.
With a BYE this week, the boys will have an intra-team hit out on Sunday morning at William Street.
Best Players: Harper, Failla, Vandame, Di Crosta, Bailey
Goal Scorers: Punt, Vandame, Di Crosta, Failla, Yates
