Match Report Round 10: Lane Cove Cats Rohan U8 vs Manly Phantoms U8 Sunday 4th August 2019

Today was a great contest against Manly which was played in great spirit – both teams showing good sportsmanship and honesty correcting the umpire when he got it wrong even when it went against their team…

We’ve all become used to seeing it but having Oscar as team captain busting through the pack with the ball tucked under his arm going for a run is really great to watch.

Its difficult this week to pick out individuals because everyone worked so well together in each of their zones.  The children now really understand about running into space, stopping the opposition by getting on a player, keeping possession of the ball and teamwork – its not all about how many goals they kick!

Whilst it is difficult to name players this week, a special mention to Joe, Archie and Gus who all displayed great skills with both kicking and handballing to teammates who worked their way into position – there were some great marks from them as well.

Team Captain – Oscar

Best Effort – Max

Best Kicker – Joe

This week is our last round and we have 3 games – below pasted are the details for each of the games.

As mentioned we’ll run a training session with the Juniors this week on Thursday at 5pm.  It will be down the bottom oval on the grass and runs for about an hour.  Its not compulsory but would be great if as many can make it as possible.

Games are 2 x 6 minute halves with a 3 minute half time break.  Those on Orange/Snake duty will only need a few oranges as there are less breaks.  All our games will be on the Synthetic surface.

Go Cats!
