Welcome to the Rye Football & Netball Club
A win’s a win and we ticked the box and went home with the 4 points. A split round next week, and we have the week off to recharge the batteries and rest some weary bodies. Our next game is July the 9th at home against Pearcedale. The win this week puts us in 6th position but only ½ game from second spot, its an unbelievably close ladder this season. We just need to keep winning.
Tyabb at Tyabb, for some reason is always a bit of a struggle for the boys, and this week was no exception. Although we ended up winning by 36 points, we went to the ¾ time huddle down by 5 points and at the 10-minute mark of the last quarter we were still 2 points down.
We then clicked kicking the next 6 goals. Nick Baron was BOG, and since coming into the seniors 4 weeks ago has been sensational down back, doing a tagging role each week. He was closely followed by Ryan Mullet, another 40 possessions and Dean Millhouse with 6 big ones.
The Reserves had a great win by 79 points and are really starting to hit their straps. This win puts them 3rd on the ladder and they too like the seniors have won their last 4 games in a row.
Big Daniel Schwind was BOG, dominating in the ruck and around the ground. Andrew Dunn was back to his best form and will be pushing for senior selection, while Scott Sterling kicked 7 goals, backing up from 6 last week. The next few weeks could see the reserves consolidate a spot in the top 3.
The Under 19’s had the luxury of starting the game with 20 players, but unfortunately due to a couple of early injuries were back to 18 in the second quarter and no bench. They battled hard and the positive was the 13 shots at goal and 5 majors. Nath Seddon and James “Booga” Papalia, shared best for Rye, while Mitch Dunn, who had been missing for a few weeks injured, was a welcome return. Cowboy Gilmartin and Jac Hollway tried hard. With games still to come against Devon Meadows, Pearcedale and Dromana, the boys may not be far away from their 1st win of the season.
