A Grade Report
Round 12 V SHOCs at Campbelltown 7/7/2012

Another successful week for the ROCS with convincing wins across all three grades meaning that September action for all grades is looming as a distinct possibility.  The A Grade got off to a flyer in the first quarter with 250 gamer Drew Litster on the end of some good direct football kicking 5 goals in the first quarter alone.  The willingness of the midfield to bustle the ball forward at all costs caught out the Sacred Heart defenders numerous times and the writing was on the wall for a comprehensive victory.  After SHOC beat SPOC last week it was important to get off to a good start to quash any momentum they may have brought into this game.

The second quarter became a bottle neck with numerous ball ups and the ROCS not able to find the space and free flowing football produced in the first quarter.  James Jordan was finding plenty of the ball and was supported through the midfield by consistent performers, in Will O’Malley in his 50th game and Craig HolmTrent Versace playing his first game for a long time came on for his first run and played well down back while Paul Fantasia worked very hard across half forward to provide a real focal point.

With a significant lead at half time the aim was to come out and put the game beyond doubt early in the third quarter.  The first 10 minutes was a frenetic pace with numerous forward 50 entries and three goals to achieve exactly that.  We had many winners all over the ground with Scott Gilbert taking further steps to getting back to peak form, Damien Moyle was strong on his wing and Tom Birch and Steve McKenna busy in the forward line.  John Corbett went down with what looked to be a bad injury however it appears to be more of an impingement on his ankle

The last quarter wasn’t the prettiest football Campbelltown has seen as SHOCs seemed content to bottle the game up with lots of ball ups in a repeat of the second quarter.  Given the game was beyond doubt the only real spectacle with the probably the Golden Retriever coming off the bench for his second run for the game and first touch on the outer wing.  The ROCS have a big opportunity in the next two weeks to cement our spot in finals and have moved into third position on the ladder with Salisbury North dropping another game to Goodwood.  Congratulations again to Drew Litster on his 250th and Vice Captain Will O’Malley on his 50th.  Most importantly both played very good games to help remember the occasion.

Best Players:  Drew Litster, James Jordan, Will O’Malley, Craig Holm, Mick Aloisi, Chris Pahl

Goal Kickers: Drew Litster 8, Tom Birch 2, Paul Fantasia 2, Scott Gilbert 1, Matthew Dawes 1 

Well done to the B grade on another good win after another week of many changes.  It’s pleasing to see some guys continuing to press for selection and keep the A grade players on their toes.  Congratulations also to the C grade who thrashed Walkerville who they lost to earlier in the year.
