Goals galore on a huge day at The Canal

Kane Peeters
Bull Sharks stalwart Kane Peters booted nine goals against the Magpies 

The scoreboard operators had a big day at The Canal on Saturday with all four Bull Sharks teams recording massive victories.

QFA 

Bull Sharks v Coomera at The Canal. 

Bull Sharks won 21.21 (147) to 3.4 (22) 

Best: Kain Ford, Grant Trew, Ryan Dienjes, Kane Peeters, Matthew Smith, Sam Bowen

Where was it won:

After a slow start the team found its feet and started to play some terrific footy. This week the opposition was a little limited although battled hard to make our lives difficult. This was the case in a first half that was a low scoring, dour affair. After half time we blew Coomera away with clean ball going forward and plenty of run in the legs. 

The highlight: 

This week saw the inclusion of Kane Peeters a Club favourite and long-time servant. A crafty and highly skilled forward who has a habit of finding space given his footy IQ, Kane found plenty of opportunities to kick a score. He ended up kicking 9.4 in a terrific display of forward craft. He had two opportunities right on the death to kick two more goals although hit the post.

What made you happy: 

The second half. We went in at half time incredibly frustrated with our game style or lack thereof. Some strong conversations and a shift in focus ensured the second half was the polar opposite of the first. Quick, clean ball into the forwards set up a big win.

Bull Sharks Football:

We still haven’t found our best footy yet not by any measure. We seem to take time to work ourselves into the game which will hurt us against quality opposition.  The good news is over the next month we will bring back into the side 3 of our A Graders who have been missing through injury. The other pleasing aspect is we are playing the way we know we can on a more consistent basis and that will give us an opportunity to mix it with the best in the competition. 

The work to do:

We have a week off to recalibrate and regenerate which is welcomed. With only 6 games remaining we have an opportunity to build toward the back end and gives ourselves a real chance. 

Trademark Player:

This week it must go to the goal kicking forward Kane Peeters who came into the side and did a terrific job. To come in after weeks in the reserves and kick a big bag as well as hand plenty off was terrific.  

Reserves.

Bull Sharks won 23.12 (150) to 1.2 (8) 

Best: Hunter Booth, Harrison Black, Archie Prime, Hudson Fogarty, William Cooper

QAFLW 

Bull Sharks v Yeronga at The Canal.

Bull Sharks won 15.11 (101) to 1.0 (6). 

Best: Havana Harris, Mia Salisbury, Ella Calleja, Bronte Parker, Courtney Sexton, Charlotte Taylor 

Where was it won: 

Bond dominated the centre bounce clearance and around the ground stoppages. Kicking four goals from centre bounce was pleasing as it has been an area of improvement for us for over the past month. 

The highlight: 

Bronte Parke’s continued growth and development as a first-year player. She won may hard contests and linked up with her run through the midfield and across half forward and finished with two goals. 

What made you happy: 

Following our loss to Southport the previous week we had a strong focus on improving our defensive mindset and shape. The weekend’s result against Yeronga was a true team defensive effort. We were able to launch multiple attacking plays off the back of very strong team defence structure and shape. We also won a lot of 1v1 contests.

Bull Sharks Football: 

When we get a strong even balance between our defence and offence, we play a consistent brand that is hard to play against.

The work to do: 

Put simply we have to find a way to replicate the game style we produced on Saturday. When we play Coorparoo in our next game we have to trust in our game plan and structures as well as bring to life the expected behaviours and actions.

Trademark Player: 

Skye White our key defender made multiple strong spoils and won critical contests to win the ball back deep in defence. It was pleasing to see her rebound from a less convincing game the week before. It’s a great sign for a young player to rebound so strongly and build their game off the back of sound starting points and a very combative mindset.

Reserves:

13.10 (88) to 0.0 (0)

Best: Evie Emmett, Evy Reeves, Chiara Nyhuis, Aleah Stringer, Chelsea Cooper, Isabelle Lowe.
