Dunshea turns it on, and a lesson is learnt!
In picture perfect conditions our seniors extracted revenge on Uni Blues.
Blues have been a very difficult combatant since we entered Premier A grade and until last Saturday Carey has come away for its previous encounters worse off. Seemed the Uni boys had our match until last weekend where we well and truly turned the tables on their undermanned outfit.
The day started well with our mighty 3rds getting the chocolates, playing on Gramlick they quickly found form and held out the higher placed Blues. At the same time courtesy of the school’s generosity our 2nds were able to enjoy a game on Dunshea. The boys played very good football and continued their excellent form, and despite losing the lead late in the game, going down by 5 points the boys can be very proud of their commitment. It’s no coincidence that the seniors are performing well on the back of a committed 2nds team who haven’t lost sight of their goals despite being well out of the finals race this year. Sadly our Unders continued their wretched run with injuries and had to play out the game away to Old Brighton without a full team, it was a tough loss but the club is strong in its support of the Unders as they are our future.
Preceding the senior’s game we had our customary lunch up in Cookies Kitchen and the All Carey crew was enthralled when listening to the Rev Tim Costello speak with Michael Gordon about some of Tim’s life long memories, motivations and some insight into his latest novel, HOPE, a must read. Believe or not, Tim still plays football and from all reports he can still mix it!
Looking to this weekend, we are away to Collegians at their beautiful Lakeside Oval, the Harry Trott. It’s a gala day as we have all 3 senior teams playing there, commencing at 9.20am. It is a critical game for our seniors who sit in 4th spot on % ahead of Old Scotch. On paper Old Scotch has an easier game than us but we are up for the challenge and as a club we are ready to tackle Collegians a well-respected and proven Premier A grade team.
Carey support has been amazing again in 2012, without sounding biased, I believe we have the best group of passionate supporters in the competition, it means a lot to the players and coaches to have the support, so crank it up another gear. We need you in numbers now, the next four games will be something to be part of and cherish, so don’t miss out.
So see you at the Harry Trott on Saturday and in full voice.
