Round 16 Seniors Match Report

MHSOBFC                  15.4-94

Emmaus St Leos     14.15-99

The unicorns had something to prove against the animals after a disappointing performance the week before. There was plenty of excitement with the side with a senior debut from Ashan Wijayakumara and club favourite Ben Burton returning to the side.

The first quarter saw the unicorns kicking with the wind. A strong start from Will Suhr at centre half back and some early forward prowess from Kane Smith and Burton saw the Unicorns leading by 3 goals at quarter time.

The Animals came out strong in the second quarter and kicking well managed to reduce the gap to only 3 points at half time. The Unicorns took full advantage of the wind in the third and extended their lead again to 4 goals.

The fourth quarter started frantically for both sides, with both trying to make the most of the final term of the game. However the Animals managed to take the momentum of the game and kicked the winning goal in the closing minutes of the quarter.

With finals ruled out, the Unicorns look to Powerhouse next week to regain some pride and finish the season well.
