After some excellent results in all age groups in Round 2, the mighty Waves hit the North Shore on Saturday.
We had teams playing at Acron Oval in St Ives, North Narrabeen Reserve and Barker Main Oval. A real round trip for our families from the East.
The day started early for the 7/8Bs at North Narrabeen, but the boys were ready for the challenge, defeating Shore’s A team by two points in a rain-affected match.
The 7/8As took the field against Knox’s As at Acron Oval, and continued their strong form with a comprehensive 104-8 victory, highlighted by high skill level and a thirst for team play.
The 7/8Cs then took the field against Knox’s B side which also included 11 of Knox’s A players, due to low numbers. The boys played a fantastic game and comprehensively defeated Knox 76-19.
Our 9/10As recorded a victory via forfeit, as Knox did not have enough players. The boys from both teams decided to play a shortened match on a flooded Acron Oval, after two-hour downpour that left the Oval resembling a flooded slip and slide!
Our 9/10Bs travelled to North Narrabeen Reserve and took on a strong St Augustine’s side, fighting it out for four quarters, but eventually going down 79-22.
Our 1sts took on one competition heavyweight Knox, and started strongly in the fine conditions. Unfortunately, the downpour came, and Knox were brutal around the ball, turning a quarter-time deficit into a 65-31 victory.
Our 2nds travelled to Barker Main Oval to face a strong Barker side, who are always difficult to defeat on their main oval. The boys have been starting games particularly well, however Barker asserted themselves in the second half of the match, running out 73-13 victors.
Huge thanks to all of the families who travelled to support their boys on a long trip to the North Shore. Attendance was fantastic, and it was great to have a real Waverley presence at these venues.
