Great first quarter that had PNU wondering how long their day was going to be. We went a bit quiet in the 2nd and 3rd but finished off strongly. This side wil be one to reckon with this year.

Great first quarter once again with Cenna bagging 5 of those. Scotch got their act together after that for a pretty even last 3 quarters. A good win nonetheless.

The early part of the day was wet, and we adapted well. Got way out in front but they finished well. They were never going to catch us though.

The boys are getting the wins at the moment but doing it tough. As the score line suggests, we were wayward in front of goal, lucky for Scotch.

Really took it up to PHOS but a couple of loose disposals cost us a much needed win against a top 5 side. Will go into this weeks game against Modbury with high hopes.

A good win against another side challenging for a top 5 spot. The win puts us back in the 5. The game was won in the third quarter against a strong breeze when we matched them on the scoreboard.

Another good win against a top 5 contender. If not for poor kicking for goal we could've really put them away. Reverses an embarrassing loss the last time we played them.

A draw was disappointing after getting ahead of them a little in the last. Missed some shots at goal but the conditions were a bit slippery. Keeps us in the hunt for a top three finish but need to win one more to cement a top 5 spot.

The conditions were poor and we trailed all day. Kicked the last 2 goals of the game late in the last to snatch a thrilling win. That win kept us in the 5 and dropped Townies to 6th.
