FOOTBALL | Mansfield 12.11 – 83 vs Mooroopna 16.8 – 104
A very tough day at the office for us. Similar to last week, we were able to get off to a reasonable start. However, were unable to stop the 3rd quarter surge from the opposition.
The theme across the last two weeks has been that we are right in games when we are on top around the clearances; however, when we are conceding clearances we are also conceding scores. Our midfield pressure needs to improve when we are not winning clearances in order to improve our overall consistency.

I was also disappointed with our ball movement. This was due to a combination of a lack of running to create open options and poor skill execution. We will continue to work on the fundamentals of the game as we are currently not executing these at a level that is expected of a team aiming to make finals.

NETBALL | Mansfield 34 vs Mooroopna 40
A close game vs Mooroopna saw our girls play a solid and impressive 3 quarters against a strong side.
The excitement of leading by 7 at quarter time unfortunately got to us in the second quarter, losing that lead as fast as we got it!
