Double Defeat to Dolphins
In stark contrast to the round one game the Werribee players were switched on defensively when they ran onto Frankston Oval to take on the Dolphins. It was the perfect result as the quarter time siren sounded with the home team scoreless. To its credit Frankston fought back in the second term and out scored the Tigers, something that would not have pleased the coaching staff.
Senior coach John Lamont in a post game interview shared this with the Tigers facebook page.
“We had a really good first quarter and controlled the play but we lost our way a bit in the second quarter and Frankston was able to get themselves back into game. We were really good at times in the second half, but other times we didn’t use the ball well, we fumbled a bit, and we over possessed the ball. We did take a step forward in terms of our defence and that was pleasing. We had a good contribution from a number of players Sam Durdin kicked 4 goals, Matt Hanson had a great game on the ball and Majak Daw both in the ruck and up forward made a significant contribution. We did pick up an injury with Ben Speight doing a hamstring. Our development team had a good win, so all in all it was a pleasing day”
Daniel Fraser praised the Development side on the spirit his side showed throughout the game, particularly the defensive effort across the board, with the side preventing Frankston from scoring in the 4th quarter of the game.
Werribee have the bye this weekend and will play Footscray at Whitten Oval on Saturday April 30th at 12 noon for round 4 in a split round. The Development side will face Sandringham the next day at Trevor Barker Oval at 11am.
