OLD BRIGHTON: 5.3.33
OLD SCOTCH STARS: 6.2.38
Old Brighton opened the season with a twilight home game against the Old Scotch on Saturday. With many new players in the team this year, and with the development of our returning players from last year, we were confident that we would field a competitive team. We started brilliantly opening with the first two goals of the match. An unfortunate accidental head clash involving Cat O’Brien in the second quarter stopped the game for a few minutes as both teams shared their concern for those involved due to the severity of the injury.
When the game resumed the Scotch team got back into the game and kicked 4 goals in third quarter to hold a 10 point lead at ¾ time. A spirited fightback in the last quarter saw us outscore Scotch and the momentum was certainly in our favour when the siren sounded but we eventually fell short by 5 points. Overall a courageous effort as we head to Old Mentone next Saturday.
