RD1 '19: Demons vs Lions (Social)
Eoin Kenny |
South London Demons 7.13.55 def. Bounds Green Lions 1.3.9
New season, new faces, new coach (😉) but one thing remains the same.... the Super 3’s having a good win on the Common against the North London Lions!
Our opponents from the last two Grand Finals made their way south on the Northern Line on a grey drizzly morning and were met with the familiar site of captain Terry Unitt and co. suiting up for another crack at AFL London Social glory.
It took a little while for the lads to settle and get to know each other, but once they did, first gamer Darcy Looker slotted the first, quickly followed by another from our Spiritual Leader Mark Brescacin.
From there we did our best to ensure goal kicking practice will dominate training this week moving our score along to 2.11 before the Lions got on the board.
A shaky, unfocused 3rd quarter allowed North to believe they were in with a chance, but a stirring rev up from the skipper and delicious goals from Bresc and departing premiership forward Skinny Mitch steadied the ship and made sure the 4x flag defending Super 3’s started the season the way we left it in 2018.
Huge games from Stephen ‘Andrew McCloud’ Pilgrim, Dogga ‘no one knows my real name‘ Dogson, Darcy ‘Extreme warm up’ Looker, Morgan ‘I played here in 2013’ Jeffrey, Crispy ‘Crispy‘, Hank ‘😉’, and Garry ‘nicest guy in the club ‘ Reilly. Oh, The Prez was pretty handy as well...
On a parting note, thank you to Gareth ‘Kracken‘ Baird for one final game and it was an honour to dedicate the game to you and your family. We love you and enjoy Australia!
