Friday 31st July –
The Year 3 Jaguars played their first ever night game against Palmyra at Melville Reserve on Friday 31st July at 6.00pm.
Although it was cool, the conditions were clear but it wasn’t to be the Jaguars night.
The best on ground were Ollie Bridges & Zain Aden.
Saturday 1st August –
• Year 9 v Fremantle City Dockers at Dick Lawrence Reserve
The Year 9 Kats played the Fremantle City Dockers on Saturday 1st August at Dick Lawrence Reserve in magnificent WA winter conditions.
The Dockers had won the 2019 Year 8 White division and had been promoted a division and like the Kats were looking to open their account in 2020.
Although I felt the Kats were on top for most of the day we went into the final quarter down by 11 points (6 goals:3 points to 3 goals:10 points).
A magnificent team performance in the final quarter highlighted by straighter kicking for goals, some desperate defensive tackles and the ability to keep them scoreless resulted in the boys singing the club song with gusto at the end of the game.
Final scores Kats 7 goals:13 points (55) d Freo City Dockers 6 goals:3 points (39).
Goal scorers: Caden Mancini (2), Cahil Fitzgerald (2), Lawson Thomas (1), Andrew Chivers (1) and Bill Riley (1).
Thanks again to Cahil Fitzgerald (Year 8) for boosting our numbers.
Sunday 2nd August –
• Year 5 v Palmyra at Melville Reserve
• Year 10 v Canning Vale at Winnacott Reserve
Today Canning Vale got off to a early lead with a couple of quick goals in the 1st quarter. The Kats responded and show cased a powerful forward line, agility and run through the middle and an impenetrable line of defence. This fantastic team work saw the Kats leading at the half time break.
Light rain in the 3rd and 4th quarters did not hamper the Kats game plan and they continued to deliver the ball forward swiftly from the centre, launching an attack on goals.
Final score Kats 9 gaols 9 (63) to Canning Vale 4 goals 3 (27).
This was a great game of footy, with both teams playing in the spirit of the game.
