Brunswick came through one of the toughest tests in Division 1 – Ormond at EE Gunn Reserve – with their heads held high, even if poor kicking for goal denied them the chance to finish with a much more respectable final score.
The NOBs’ effort could not questioned, especially in the third quarter when the home side – with the wind – was kept goalless for the first 25 minutes. A vast discrepancy in disposal efficiency, though, meant we not able to capitalise on our time in possession.
For not the first time this season, the opposition got the jump on us in the first quarter, before we took stock at the initial break and tightened up our defensive game thereafter.
In his first senior game, big ruckman James Moverley was lion-hearted and gave our midfielders lead by Nick Burgin and Ben Wilson plenty of opportunities to get first use of the ball. Jed Carey was again excellent as the key forward and could’ve kicked half a dozen goals, but three was still a good return.
Liam Whelan continues to impress with his run off half-back, while Aidan Pollock gave another four-quarter performance. Weston Howell was playing his best game for the Club when he unfortunately went down with a broken collarbone. We wish him a speedy recovery. Teenagers Daniel Mott and Dom Sullivan showed flashes of brilliance and we look forward to them building on that in the weeks to come.
This Saturday we play bottom team Ivanhoe at Gillon Oval in a game we simply must win. Get down and offer your support!
