BULLetin – Round 12 Review

This week it was Mount Lilydale’s turn to challenge the undefeated bulls at Allard Park, despite a couple of  sluggish weeks the bulls were ready for the rams and were on fire from the first bounce. Inspired by the return of ball magnet Sheehan and the ever young Santacroce the bulls were able to rack up 100 points before the half time break. Even with the skipper Notaro still missing due to injury, the bull’s forwards were still dominant with Jake George and Pete Butler kicking 13 goals between them. A supreme midfield display was also to thank, helping create 48 scoring shots in what ended in a 140 point victory.

In the early game, it was a classic 8 point game which could determine the final 4, the bulls were also able to get the jump on their opponents kicking 5 goals to 1 in the first term. Though the margin continued to grow the rams were spending a lot of time forward. Luckily for us, Luke Mahoney was able to help out in defence grabbing anything in the air, and when he wasn’t there the rams were wayward on goal. Mourelatos, Randall and Salloum were the other main contributors in the 83 points win.

BULLetin – Round 11 Review

Round 11 saw us take on Parkside for the second time this year. After one of the coldest mornings of the year the sun shone and once again so did the bulls. It was another strong start but yet again it was another inaccurate display in front of goals that kept the opposition in it. The devils were much more competitive this time around and even won the last quarter alas it wasn’t enough to stop the in form bulls. Pete Butler was strong up forward with 3 goals and Ken Zuidema was dominant in the midfield taking out the best on ground award in a 41 point win.

In the early game the undermanned Parkside came out firing and shocked the bulls. They were able to apply tonnes of pressure causing plenty of turnovers to take the lead by 15 points at the first break. After qtr time the bulls were able to get back on top, the back line started to get the better of their opponents and the experience of Mourelatos and Branch were able to turns things around in the middle. With Parkside struggling for rotations we were able to finish off the strongest winning by 55.
