OGCC Blue (43) vs Torquay Coles (44)
Another great game but unfortunately Blue were pipped at the post by a strong finishing Torquay team coming home with the wind. Despite this result, there is nothing to be disappointed in the way these boys have gone about their football all year at training and on game days. The coaches couldn’t be more proud of their skill development over the year and the endeavour they have shown in their desire to win the contest for the ball. All this and the fact that they are simply a fantastic bunch of kids who clearly love their footy and always have a ’thanks coach’ to offer after the game.

Awards went to Will Cunningham, Mitchell Charleston, Luke O’Brien, Oliver Terhorst, Cooper Clark.

What an outstanding way to finish the season in a game against quality opposition. Both sides showed there is some tremendous talent out there. It was tough and physical contest with some outstanding passages of play where the skillset of both sides was on display and had parents in awe of how they had developed there understanding of how to play the game and execute skills to advantage over the course of the year. Harry Morphet and Jack McGough were again outstanding with Lucas Anderson, Jarvis Lindsay and Noah Coghlan the award winners.
OGCC Orange (51) vs Anglesea (15)
Outstanding display from this Orange team secured the win early in the peace in this last round for 2017. Full size ground with a howling win – typically this would have been a low scoring game.

The Blue boys had a great finish to the year making it eight in a row. Jamieson Renkauskas was on fire early with three first quarter goals as we piled on five straight in the first quarter.

Well done boys and lets finish what we started on the beach all those weeks ago.
