Round 2

Freeling FC Round 2, 2017 : Match Media Reports

Under 9 Blue

Best: Trent Hutchens, Oscar Leske and Dean Cloak.

Under 9 Red

The reds started strong against Willaston kicking 3 goals early on, but credit to Willaston who never gave up and came back with 3 quick goals before the Reds took the game on. Our younger lads Oliver Horley and Ace Hutchinson got involved well. Special mention Hamish “Tex” Warner for great attack at the ball. Goals to Blake Rawlinson 3, “Bomber” Moss 2, and one each to Ally Morris, Dylan Harding, Tali Pipe and Ryder Chinner. Best went to Charlie “Mossy” Moss, Ryder Chinner and encouragement award went to Tahlia Nairne who got herself involved in the play well.

Under 11 Blue

Best: Elijah Wood, Jack Schrapel, Nicholas Harris

Under 11 Red

A good night for footy but narrowly going down by a couple of goals. The team is improving every time they play. The game was played in good spirits by both teams. Special mention to Jake Adkins and James Horley for playing a half for Willaston. Best players were Jordan Wendelborn (3 goals), Xavier Pipe, Will Morris, Harry Oliver and Bailey Gaskin (1 goal).

Under 13’s

Great results from the team, they continue to gel well together on and off the field and their football continues to improve. Another excellent result, let’s continue to improve our skills and work together for another win when we take on Angaston. Best went to Connor O’Donnell, Jayden Matz and Harvey McDonald.

Junior Colts

Tough day for the boys today, going down by 15 goals to a big Willaston side. We’ll lick our wounds, take some lessons out of it, and keep improving to close the gap. Best players today were much harder to pick, but our defence was under siege most of the game and I thought Luke Wynes and Pat Blows battled manfully. It was good to see Shannon Stuart find some run and dash and Tom Hahn find a bit of the ball down back in the second half. When we got the ball in our hands, we did show some promising passages of play.

Senior Colts

Without playing our best football, the 17’s never dropped away all day. Looked really good with our quick ball movement and hard running forward. Backline was sensational all day with fullback Sam Daff best player and fellow defenders Blake Duregon and Ben Massie.


The Reserves came out with a bang, playing some excellent footy in the first quarter going into the first break just one kick behind, however this is where it stopped, a few injuries led to our fitness levels coming back to haunt us, giving Willaston free run for the rest of the game. While the results have been disappointing the team seems to be settling with some late comers into the season, and with some work at training things can improve quickly. Best on the day went to Ant Graham who played hard all day, Nathan East and Ben Laube.

A Grade

The A’s went out expecting a tough match against a quick Willaston squad knowing that a few of our key players were unavailable. As it was in Round 1 against Kapunda, both teams were kick for kick with margins at 1, 3 and 9 at the breaks and Freeling took the lead halfway through the last quarter, but this time it was Willaston that kicked away. Time to regather, and with players due to return we can focus on this week’s game against Angaston. Best went to Travis Muster, Adam Cockshell and Peter Dempsey.

Round 1 Jumper unveiled

Freeling Football Club will adopt a new jumper for Round 1 against Kapunda to commemorate Anzac Day

If you are interested in helping out this season there are many roles that need filling from team managers, first aid safety officers, umpires, goal umpires, helping at training to doing a couple of shifts on the junior brekky bbq, helping in the canteen and at various events.

All this helps spread the load over all our Redlegs families and a great way to get to know more people in our ever growing club and town.

If u can help please let a committee member know, send an email to: freelingjuniorswebsite@hotmail.com or phone Marie on 0432 616 843

With such big numbers in our juniors we would appreciate if every family or friend can help once or twice during the season.
