OGCC Orange (40) v Barwon Heads (49)
Strong winds, blustery conditions and gusts swirling across and around the oval made it hard for anyone to get a decent kick to a team-mate or goal. Both teams worked hard to create play at the scoring end. Captains were Max Foley, Sonny Warren, Caleb Stolk and Henry Belsar-LeBel with awards to Aidan Berriman, Fletcher Ward, Noah Brooks and Josh Beardsley.
OGCC White (48) v Drysdale Crows (18)
Awards this week to Sean Stewart, Leon Connolly, Ben Mifsud, Nelson Rokesky and Hunter Marsh. The boys worked really well using their team mates into the wind. It was a battle with the Drysdale team using great pressure, but to our boys credit our team work was fantastic in the second half to finish the game well.
OGCC Blue (50) v Torquay Boak (28)
Torquay Boak were strong contenders dominating the first quarter. Cobra Blue boys fought hard with excellent tackling and utilising the wind advantage for a smashing second and last quarter resulting with a win. Awards to Ned Allen, Izak Peace, Ryder Stewart, Jack Vose and Lennox Crabtree.
OGCC Red (64) v Swans Red (65)
A close game, played in tough windy conditions against South Barwon. High scoring considering the conditions. Lucian Joyce displayed a good captain’s game, kicking three goals in the first quarter. Award winners were Lucian Joyce, Darcy Harrington, Archie Knowles and Henry Wynn.
OGCC Orange (67) v Swans White (15)
A great defensive start only allowing Swans White to kick one goal with the strong wind, while we kicked three and four goals down that scoring end. Joe McGregor captained with great leadership and Samuel Eales, George Every, Noah Jeffrey and Gus McCartney all received awards.
OGCC Blue (27) v Swans Blue (45)
The boys applied themselves to the task all day in a seriously wind affected game. If not for a flurry of goals to the Swans in the dying minutes of the game the result could have been quite different. It was great to see the boys begin to adapt to the wind in attack and defence. Awards for the Blues this week went to Tommy Teague, Lenny Honner, Tyler Bishop, Oliver Terhorst and Eddie Clark.
OGCC White (30) v Torquay McMahon (46)
A sunny early Sunday morning home game this week saw both teams start really well and use the ball efficiently. Cobra boys produced some great footy in the second half to narrow the gap and should be proud of their overall effort.
OGCC Orange (39) v Drysdale Wilton (33)
Excellent football showcased on Sunday as these two inform sides battled it out in trying conditions with the wind pinning the ball to one side. OGCC Orange held on to secure the win with an impressive five on the trot. Stand outs on the day were Archie Fleet, Michael Wilkinson, Jamison Hallam, James Dean and Jack Davies.
OGCC White (14) v Torquay Stone (90)
From the first bounce the Cobra boys knew they were up against a determined, hungry Torquay side. The wet ground made it hard for our boys to get possession and were unable to keep a lid on the goal scoring from the opposition despite some strong efforts in defence. Awards to Alex Gibbon, Ryan Drinkwater, Riley Doheney, Jarred Farrell and Remi Reilly.
OGCC Blue (31) v Leopold Brown (27)
It was a slow start for both teams in windy conditions, yet after half time the Cobra boys found the goals and held on as Leopold made a late charge to take the win. Great team effort and a gutsy win.
UNDER 14 Round 10
OGCC 1 (27) v Grovedale Broad (37)
Starting against the wind the Cobra boys pushed to the boundary to hold up play. They banged on three goals at the scoring end in the second quarter but were down at the final change. With the wind in the last they fought hard to gain back the lead but missed opportunities and injuries left them fall short by 10 points. Awards to Darcy Freeman, Darcy Pearson, Brodie Muscat, Kirby Reilly, Xavier Norman and Johnte Lange.
OGCC 2 (59) v East Geelong (19)
It was a top of the table clash at East Geelong on a windy morning for footy but the Cobra boys were up for the challenge. After an arm wrestle in the first quarter the boys put on a show in the second to set up the win. Run and carry was the theme for the day and with continual hard work around the contest we had first use of the footy all day. The boys are now four games clear on top and looking forward to the weeks ahead. Encouragement awards to Will Lamb, Jimmy Spowart, Jack Fox, James Mitchell, Joe Doedel and Bailey Prato.
OGCC 3 (18) v St Joseph’s 3 (15)
In very windy conditions, the Cobras capitalised on the scoreboard early to kick the first three goals, before our defenders stood tall to hold off a fast finishing SJ3. Intercept marking, defensive pressure, and repeat efforts at the contest paved the way for a great Cobras victory and to reclaim second position. The win was a real team effort, with special mention to Kieran Spanner and Bryce O’Neil for their match-saving marks in the final minutes. Awards to Jack Ferguson, Luke Ewart, Kai Forbes, Max West, Flynn Ness and Ned Poynder.
