Senior Archives: St Kilda City vs Heatherton, 18 June 2011
Bendigo Bank Dingley Seniors
Early in this game it appeared that St Kilda City were in for a day out with Quinny on fire up forward, however to the boys credit they battled hard to get some respectability into our 1st term score with three majors. It became a solid contest thereafter with the squad throwing everything at their more highly fancied opponent. Our third term was terrific in which we outscored the Saints. The final scoreboard was a little flattering to the Saints who piled on five goals in the last 7 minutes of the game. Our senior players really stood up. Ryan Amos was our best against his old side. Matt Jamieson was hard at it all day with over thirty possessions and young Mark Di Blasio did a terrific job in the back half continually repelling Saints' attacks. All the boys should be proud of that performance against a division one heavyweight and likely finalist. If we can take that attitude into all games then who knows what can be achieved in the second half of the season.
The President, Committee and players wish decorated past player Glenn Krepp (now with Lyndale) a speedy recover from his serious injury. We also send our best to Craig "Rowdy" Rowell on his continuing battle. A great bloke and treasured by the club
Great night had by one and all at the Dogs. A very impressive venue and Sandown greyhounds are to be commended for their organisation of the function and in particular the food. Recommend this night to all clubs
