U12-3 Manly Bombers 11.7.73 def LCC 0.4.4

After an impressive 2022 campaign, our Lane Cove Cats finished the season with a much-improved six wins, challenging for the top 4 but just missing finals in fifth place. Whilst “mathematically possible” to reach fourth spot, the 2nd-ranked Manly Bombers proved far too strong on their home mud heap in our final match for the season.

Captain Nate set the tone in the first half, Ben, Sachin & Jerry tackling ferociously, with Josh, Crosby & Ivan strong in defence. We showed great resistance keeping the Bombers scoreless in Q2 and our midfield of Oscar, Harry & Jude stood up well. We needed to hit the scoreboard so switch to all-out attack in the second half, but we couldn’t get through the Bombers defence. Tom, Raff, Riley and Toby were reliable as always.

The Coaches Award went to Harry for his consistent effort all season.  It has been a pleasure to coach this group of boys, who train & play with great enthusiasm. Through our two AFL footy trips to Swans & Giants games, the hours of fun at Blackman Park and our signature high fives, these boys have made great friends forever.

Many thanks to the supportive parents for their positivity but especially to Cam as Team Manager and Pete as Assistant Coach/Runner. Huge team effort to improve from zero wins in 2021 to six in 2022 – you should all be very proud of your season together.

Go Cats!
