OGCC White (1) vs OGCC Red (32): The team defended very well and split from the contest. The team worked hard at their team focuses for the week and their skills and knowledge for the game is improving every week. The OGCC Red side ran away with the game in the last quarter but it was a great encounter.
OGCC Blue (36) vs Drysdale Crowe (7): The boys improve each week showing excellent tackling, winning contests for the ball. Leading all game with great team effort all four quarters and dominating the fourth for the win. Awards to Thomas McGregor, Lachlan Holmes, Ryder Stewart, Johnathon Punchard and William Devine.

OGCC White (46) vs Torquay Coles (36): It was a very even contest this week with both sides playing some very good football. The theme for the day was for all players to be involved in the game and to the players credit they all played a part and contributed at various times. Best was Harry Morphet in his first game, Tyler Stolk contested well all day and Jack McGough chimed in with three goals. Encouragement awards went to Lachie Morrow who took some outstanding marks, Jarvis Lindsay and Axle Kerr who both won plenty of the footy.
OGCC Blue (105) vs St Albans King (3): A great display of sustained teamwork from the U10 Blues. The boys were relentless in their pursuit of contested possessions and consequently controlled the game with their ball use from start to finish. Very pleasing to see across the board involvement from all players. Award winners this week – Will Cunningham, Henry White, Ben Cirillo, Charlie Confoy, and Lenny Allen.
OGCC Orange (20) vs Torquay Watson (67): Super physical game put out there from both sides with the final score not being a true indicator of the way the game was played. Jami Hallam led well with his vice Ash Dwyer lots of heart in their efforts. Jack Hammond was outstanding as too was Will Dunston and young gun Thomas Staehr who gave their all and James Dean’s intent was inspirational.
OGCC White (2) vs Swans Blue (132): An easy win to the opposition today who got an early jump on our boys and didn’t look back.
OGCC Blue (38) vs St Albans Grinter (15): The U12 Blue boys had a great game to record our first win for the season against St Albans. On the big St Albans ground the boys ran all game, linking up well with some great field kicking, as well as starting to clunk some overhead marks. We were a tackling machine this week never allowing the St
Albans boys to get a run on. Awards this week went to Oliver Martino, Elijah Ottosen-I, Luke Doedel, Hayes Webber, Ethan Hamilton and James Stow.
