Casey V Sandy
Case 13.18.96 defeated by Sandy 18.18.126 Travelled to the new Casey fields complex today... Conditions were freezing....a cold southerley blowing right up the ground...plus rain..plus around 6 centigrade made for as difficult conditions that I've seen for a long time Springvale kicked with the wind in the 1st 1/4 and at 1/4 time scores were either level or Sandy down by a couple of points... Sandy suffered a few injuries and as a result we didn't have anyone on the bench in the last 1/4 Liddell, Poyas, Summers and Rigoni were all unable to play in the last 1/4 so to run out winners made it even more enjoyable. Having the bye next week will certainly help these players. Best for Sandy....Danny Hughes best on ground IMO...Jones, Crowe, Gallagher,Lamb.. Had a good look at the new complex and it is very inpressive...the surface was excellent...the visitors rooms are very spacious....the social club upstairs looks good and there was a very rowdy lot out on the balcony.. The atmosphere was really good...maybe because everyone was huddled under the limited cover The Casey Fields complex really is quite outstanding and will only get better....maybe it needs just a bit more parking available near the main ground GO ZEBRAS

good game, agree the umpiring was terrible for both teams, in the end sandringham just had that little bit extra class and experience to run away with it, particularly without a bench. But i feel things are still looking positive for the scorps, they had 7 players just out of under 18 footy, which to hold sandy for as long as they did was a good effort, however as banfeild said, they have to know that losing is not acceptable. [quote]maybe it needs just a bit more parking available near the main ground [/quote] car parking is still under construction around the main ground, it is a pain in the behind when you have to walk from oval 2. I personally would like to see in the future cars alowwed in the far side, all it takes is some is a little road around the outside, i think it would actually give a bit of atmosphere at that far side of the ground. But was a good game of footy, a bit of indirect fighting going on between a few on the balcony and a few in the sandy area but all in good fun. Having seen now Sandringham and Nth Bullants play my tip is for Sandy to win the flag, just too skillfull and classy.
