RD3 '18: Demons vs Giants (Men's Conference)

Clapham Demons 14.10.94 def South East London Giants 3.1.19
A glorious day for football saw the conference team take on the South East London Giants in our Round 3 clash. We were entering the game in great form but given the evenness of the conference division we knew we were in for a contest.
The first quarter saw a very competitive contest and probably should have seen the Giants put on a few more. Neither team was able to get on top, as we went into the first break 3 goals to the giants 2.
After that we really stepped into gear. With Mangoes pulling the moves at quarter time, we threw big Gareth in the ruck and Chester down back. This saw the momentum start to swing our way. The midfield got to work with Moore, Tyquin, G, Fintan & Soon starting to get on top. And with the ever reliable backline led by Mitch and Kirby, we were able to shut down each of the Giants attacks.
To the Giants credit it never felt like they were out of the game but the further the game went on, the more it opened up. The Demons running out winners by 75 points.
A great team performance, but special mention to Mitch, Kirby, Grundy, Gareth, G, Fintan, and Evan.
We now look forward to our Round 4 top of the table clash against the Putney Magpies. Friday night under lights!
