BULLiten – Round 9

Round 9 saw us host an in form Elsternwick at Allard Park as the bulls looked to make it 8 wins from 8 games. The seniors started off slowly with Elesternwick applying all the pressure and producing clean skills across the ground. Despite this and inaccurate kicking in the first quarter the bulls were still able to lead by 5 goals at the main break. The third quarter came and the game started to get ugly. Despite the scuffles and the blood, the bulls were able to show their strength and discipline and started to win the ball. Jake George top scored with 4 goals and even Bill Croagh kicked one in his BOG performance as the bulls went onto to kick 5 in the last quarter and take the win by 61 points.

In the early game, the reserves were taking on an under-strength Elsternwick. The ‘wickers’ were still able to provide a tough contest in the first quarter with only one goal the difference. After the first break the bulls got into gear, Donny and Murph were able to hit the scoreboard with 15 between them and Dancer and McMonigle were able to dominate the midfield. This lead to 23 goals in the last 3 quarters and we were able to increase our percentage with a big 150 point win.

BULLiten – Round 8

In round 9 we took the Eastern freeway down to Box Hill to take on Eley Park as we looked to remain undefeated. Despite the bulls kicking 3 early goals it was the Sharks who were able to move ahead with 7 goals in the first quarter to put the early scoreboard pressure on. After  12 goals in total for the opening term, the game became a massive arm wrestle as Eley Park were able to extend their lead kicking the only goal in the second quarter. The half time break came and the in form bulls were able to regroup. The dynamic forward duo of Notaro and George were able to find the ball up forward while Croagh and Bruhn took control down back. With 12 goals to 2 in the second half the bulls were able to make it 7 from 7 with a 14 point win.

In the earlier game the bulls were not able to get the start we wanted as we went into half time 28 points down. At the break the reserves were expected to lift and that is what the bulls did. With Dancer, McMonigle and Mourelatos winning plenty of clearances, moving it forward to the dangerous Sparkes and Goyne the bulls were able to hit the scoreboard and just before 3/4 time there was less than a goal the difference. Unfortunately the momentum could not be maintained and the sharks took the victory by 12 points.
