A new look division 3 team took to the field in a round 1 matchup against Altona/Wyndham. The team included first game players Jacob and Mike Spilkin and Josh Rotstein along with James Faull back playing after a long absence. Just before the game started a wild burst of wintry weather swept across the ground drenching all the players and their equipment. However, a sign of how different this year’s team is to recent Div 3 teams, the team still went out i8n the rain before the game and got a good dynamic warm-up in.
The game started with a goal to Altona, however we added 2 to take the lead in a tight first quarter. As the game evolved our juniors settled into their roles and started to take control of the game. The second quarter was played at a pretty fast pace, our D repelling Altona’s attacks, our clears working well leading to some transition goals – including a ripper from Peter Dyson playing in his last game for the club (he’s returning to England), as well as some great inside feeds to Josh who added 2 more goals to the 2 the scored in the 1st quarter.
We took a 6-1 lead into half-time. The pace dropped off in the 3rd quarter but the pattern of the game was unchanged. Jai and Jacob dominating the face-off. James Currie stopping any shots Altona managed to get, and solid defence from Pedro, Ethan and James Faull keeping the ball in attack for long periods of time. We added 3 more goals in the 3rd quarter. Altona added another in the last quarter but we got another 4 to run out winners by 13 to 2.
James Faull got 3 votes for a dominating performance in defence. (Ethan and Pedro also did well). Josh in his first game got 2 votes – finished the game with 6 goals and 2 assists, and Dylan got 1 vote, running rings around the defence at X, and scoring 1 goal and throwing 5 assists.
Caulfield defeated Altona 13-2 (Rotstein 6-2, Bartlem 2-0, Dyson 2-0, Harari 1-5, Richards 1-0, Cohen 1-0, M. Spilkin 0-1, O’Donnell 0-1, J. Spilkin 0-1) – POD
The Div 1 team missed out on a game in round 1. Malvern giving a walkover. The next game will be a tough one against a polished and strong Williamstown outfit at Greenwich reserve – POD
State league played Altona on Saturday with a 12-10 loss, but a gutsy effort with a couple of very late withdrawals just b4 the game that left us with 13 players to start.
An injury to another in the 2nd term which meant we played most of the game with 12 players , just 3 long poles. This made man down very difficult.
Tank dominated face off for us , we had enough ball to win the game.
Ultimately unforced errors and execution let us down. We had some good assisted goals which we had been working a lot on at training. We fielded a young team , which will be better for the hit out. Some individuals stood out that almost got us over the line. In Defense, Michael Rodrigues 1st game in defense was reborn again (a natural) , Will Lettieri did it all (defense , ground balls , clears)
Midfield stand outs were tank in the face off & Liam Harari with some tremendous ground balls, Attack – with Liam Fothergill had to some nice finishing and Will our American import doing a good job opening up angles for the team.
A few basics to work on during the week to hopefully turn it around for the next game – Rob Stark
