ST GEORGES BASIN DRAGONS SENIOR MENS FOOTBALL
25 AUGUST 2018
Basin Senior Men’s 1st, 2nd & 3rd Grade sides played their last matches of the season against the Milton Ulladulla Panthers in front of a sizeable crowd at home last Saturday 25th August.
Results did not favour the home teams as all three lost their matches – 3rds went down 1-3, 2nds went down 2-3 & 1sts lost 0-1 in a disappointing day.
3rds had a very entertaining game with some excellent play throughout, while 2nds showed that they can score goals in a very evenly matched game – just losing it in the final minutes.
1st Grade also lost late in the match with a goal being scored from a questionable free kick given on the edge of the penalty box late in the game.
Saturday also saw the inaugural running of the Basin Gift – a length of the field sprint race open to all Senior players registered with the Club.
This race was brought about to finally work out who is the quickest player over this distance.
Congratulations to Zac Stahlhut who won the race, a trophy, $100 and bragging rights for the next year!
In all, it has been a decent season with improvement being shown on many fronts and I look forward to the challenge of next season – 2019 will be the Year of the Dragon.
Thank you to all who helped out this year and to our band of loyal supporters – I hope you will all return next season in even greater numbers.
