BULLetin – Round 6

Round 6 saw the bulls make the road trip to Lilydale to take on the rams who were sitting in 3rd place, looking to be one of the main contenders in September. We were looking to maintain our hot form and that is exactly what we brought from the first bounce. Kicking into the wind, Skipper Notaro put us on the front foot, he kicked the first 3 of the game which set up and 4 goal to 0 first quarter. The rest of the game became  very scrappy with the rams applying a lot of physical pressure. Despite this the bulls were able to show our strength and were able to grind out the victory. Hugh Sheehan in the midfield, the constant improvement of ‘Chop’ Hayes and Patty Notaro’s bag of goals were just some of the highlights in the 35 point victory. The win made it 6 from 6 which is now the best start to a season since 1995.

In the early game it was a very tight affair. It was goal for goal almost all day, the bulls had plenty of the ball with Murphy and Dancer in the middle but the rams were very hard to stop when they were able to get it forward. With the bulls in front by 3 with seconds to go, we were unable to defend the rams last thrust forward and they were to kick the winner moments before the final siren.

Round 7 – BYE

BULLetin – Round 5

Round 5 saw Parkside come to the bullring as we looked to extend our winning streak to 5. It was a tough start to the game with only 1 goal the difference at quarter time in the bulls favor. In the second term, even though Parkside weren’t able to get on the scoreboard their pressure kept us to 2 goals for the quarter and kept the game in the balance. The second half was much different as the bulls kicked away. Jake George was able to find his early season form up forward and Will Croagh was even better down back as the bulls kicked a massive 11 goals to none in the third. Another 8 goals to 0 in the last showed the dominance from the bulls across the entire ground as the final siren went with us winning by a massive 134 points
