Whilst the game was on, the weather gods were kind to us and allowed us a glimpse of blue sky and no rain.
We only had 11 players against a strong Oxton team. We were missing some key players, but everyone that played on Saturday gave their best. It was another great team performance.
Quarter 1. We frustrated Oxton from the beginning till the end of this quarter. The score for this quarter was 2 - 1 for Oxton. Had we been more clinical with our finishing, this quarter could have been a draw or even a win for us. We did great defensive work to keep them at bay.
Quarter 2. Had a great quarter for us although Oxton pulled two goals away in this quarter. The score for this quarter was 5 - 3 for Oxton. Similar to quarter one with our performance.
Quarter 3. Another close quarter. The score was 3 - 2 for Oxton. We were close but never went ahead.
Quarter 4. We tried to win this quarter but came a bit short. The score was 4 - 2 for Oxton.
Overall a great performance. We showed what we can do in defence against a strong side. We were calm and stayed calm and composed. We were not defeatist in our attitude and approach towards this game. There is a lot of things we can take away from this game for future games. Well done all.
