Round 10 - Men's Conference - Dees vs Swans
Rowhen McBride |
The top of the ladder clash did not disappoint and if you are craving more hard nosed football then the same match will return the following week.
A theme surrounding intent and intensity was broadcasted before the game but it was the Demons who succumbed to another slow start allowing the Swans to kick 3 quick and easy goals.
The 30+ degrees weather was nothing in comparison to the heat in the coal face. Jonas Manley led from the front in regathering the ascendancy and applying the hard knocks on the Swans.
At half time the Demons had begun to win the territory battle however the scoreboard was not following the trend of the game.
First game in the Conference division for Oli Lewey and he did not shy away from the opportunity. After an early knock, he rose to the occasion in a ruck role assisting the midfield brigade to get their hands on the ball.
We went into final quarter with the aim to win the quarter and prepare for the following week. Coming into the team from Paris for the day, Brad Geddes slotted goal number three for the day. This was followed by Phil Don, in his last game for the club, slotting his final goal.
The scoreboard got tighter however another lapse in concentration and we returned back to their 5 goal buffer.
The Clapham Common saw more corks than a Bordeaux Château.
Although the Demons lost the game the boys secured the minor premiership and go into the upcoming week with some areas to work on but can be confident that we can get the job done.
