OGCC (33) v Geelong Amateur (73)
A brave effort from the Cobras against an Ammos side that was just too good on the day. Ryan Humphries booted three goals while Will Lamb, Darcy Freeman, Austin Derby, Max Lacy, Ty Armistead and Oliver Northam were also outstanding contributors. The Cobras may not have progressed to the grand final, but they had a crack and could hold their heads high.
OGCC 2 (20) vs Anglesea (35)
The Cobra boys faced a fitting opponent in what was their first ever final, with the game tight right from the start and with every contest meet with immense pressure the boys did themselves proud. Although the result didn’t fall their way, they fought the game out right to the final siren. They will be better for the experience and can’t wait for this Sunday against Geelong Ammos and a shot at redemption. Encouragement awards to Henry Greenwood, Darcy Freeman, Max Lacy, Xavier Eales, Oliver Connan and Max McLachlan.
OGCC 3 (64) vs Geelong Amateur 3 (30)
The lads from OGCC3 were fired up for their first ever final, against an Ammos team that had won their three previous encounters in 2017. Despite conceding the first goal, captain Max West responded to kick two first quarter goals and get the team rolling. The development of the team was then on show, as every player united in a team focused display of footy. In the second quarter, Ned Poynder and Nathan Grasso stepped up to apply more scoreboard pressure. Knowing Ammos were going to challenge late, in the second half OGCC3 maintained the intensity, driven by on-ballers Ned Gray and Jimmy Spowart. The collective team effort resulted in a win and ensured OGCC3 a week off to prepare for their grand final. Awards to Jimmy Spowart, Ned Gray, Max West, Ned Poynder, Izaak Terhorst and Elliott McQueen.
