CSL Round 8: Ds vs Unley
Result: Whites 3 – 0
Wow lads wow, Saturday afternoon was a turning point for our squad of Men against moaners Unley!
Ok we started with some help in the first half, thanks to Cam & Sam who helped a lot at the back!
We had a quick fire start with yes you guessed it Sammy Belyovski hungry for another hat trick….greedy git! They pegged us back and it probably was a even contest at half time.
We then brought on the Big Guns……yep Micheal, Andy and Cris had their instructions and headed out. We had further goals from Machine Gun Sammy….( yep another hat trick) but then had to endure the last thirty minutes, more in our half than theirs. Needless to say we battled, clawed and were desperate and ultimately prevailed.
Easy to finish there, but I just can’t.
Every single one of you stood up and showed why our great club became just that, Great! The passion, the will, the team ethic, I could go on, it was a privilege to watch old heads as well as young, mature on the pitch as the game went on!
I also have to single out two lads.
Jimmy thank you for your immense determination to beat your old team, backing up from the game before, to stay the whole way. I nearly took you off several times, but I just couldn’t do it!
Then finally Mr Cris (no h) Birzer, what a half you had, Cris you epitomised the values Uni Whites hold so dear. Determination, strength and spirit were there for all to see…..kudos to you
and all of your teammates, you have raised the levels, let’s keep it going for the rest of the season!
