One out of four in tough matches for Thornlie

One out of four in tough matches for Thornlie

649

It was another great day for football with the weather perfect.

Unfortunately, the same could not be said about all four games that were played.

Amelia Johnson is tackled by an Ellenbrook player.

Women’s

Our ladies’ team hosted Ellenbrook and went into the game full of confidence.

That confidence showed through in their play with the Lions leading at quarter time.

But someone forgot to tell the girls there were another three quarters to go.

They lost convincingly 2.1 to Ellenbrook 9.2.

Best players for Thornlie were Kitt Catulpos, Jenna Cameron and Natasha Cotton.

Colts

The Colts were a very similar story; they started well and faded badly.

Full-time score was Thornlie 3.4 to Jandakot 12.10.

The boys had been playing well recently with three wins in a row, so hopefully this will be a little hurdle to jump before getting on the winners list again.

Best players were hard to find but a standout was Shaun Anderson, followed by Jack Breckon and Eugene Lim.

Reserves

Unfortunately, the Reserves played their worst game of the year so far.

The boys have been very competitive this year without winning.

In saying that, the Ressies have been doing a great job in going up and playing League this year without any questions and doing extremely well when called upon.

On a special note, congrats to Nick Falcetta on reaching 150 Ressies games – a great clubman, and a great bloke.

Score was Thornlie 3.2 to Jandakot 21.11.

League

It was another good, hard game in the League with the scores fairly close all day.

But it was Thornlie got the win 9.5 to Jandakot 6.6.

So far this year the League boys have been finishing games off running hard due to the big pre-season that senior coach Dave Joncour has put them through.

Better players for Thornlie were Andrew Tomich with three goals, Sam Davies down back, Jordan Farrell and Mathew Robson.

Well done to the canteen ladies Joanne Holmes and Sharon Yates with special help from Jenny Farrell and Narell Smith. Thank you to all of you; you’re the reason Thornlie has the best canteen in the competition.

Last but not least, it was great to see Nathan and Louise from LJ Hooker Thornlie at the home of the mighty Lions supporting their team – great people always trying to help. Thanks guys, very much appreciated.

We look forward to seeing another big crowd at the Lions’ Den this Saturday as the ladies take on Quinns and the men take on Carlisle.

It’ll be an early kick off for the ladies from 9.30 am.

So please come on down and get a big bacon and egg burger for brekky.
