Round 20 and 21.

Men’s Premier 2’s Lost to YMCC 2-1

Last week we had a tough even battle  – the stuff of legends – against a top ranked team, so close it made the 2-1 loss even more infuriating.
It showed us that despite our location on the ladder, we really are a good team who can challenge the top teams.

We had a Tuesday midweek game over at Shenton this week and it was almost as if history was repeating itself. Some superb dominance from Zeus at the front saw him rewarded with the first goal on the scoreboard. However with exactly one minute to go till half time, YMCC just like our opposition from the previous week, came back with a goal of their own to even it all up at 1 all at half time.

The thing with losing the lead just before half time means that we’re in the change rooms sitting there frustrated and disheartened, whereas our opposition is now pumped with a renewed sense of “we can do this guys – let’s win”.

The second half saw some great performances from TC our Mug winner and our captain Domby and we had some opportunities in the form of 3 shorts and some field goal attempts however it was YMCC who converted their short with 20 minutes to go who would eventually come away as victors. Special mention goes to Lachy for being yellow carded for trying to pick on the female umpire – shame on you. She would have none of that. A close game and a disappointing result.

Men’s Premier 2’s Lost to Suburban 3-2

It was the our second match for the week, and our second last one of the season. Sitting in ninth, it was essential that we secured a victory against the 11th ranked team namely Subs.
This looked promising in the first half with Viner slotting in a field goal ten minutes into the match. We were the stronger team and this should have been an easy one for us to win. Despite us knowing that our weakness is letting in a goal just before halftime, we STILL managed to let one in against us 5 minutes before half time. 3rd match in a row we’ve let the other team equalise just before half time. Once again 1-1 at half time.

Ten minutes in, once again a goal was scored, but this time by Subs. 2-1 down and the bench was starting to get angsty. It took not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 short corner attempts for us to finally convert a goal and it was a Squibb push to the bottom right corner. Sub’s goalkeeper was the same one as for the 1’s match and he really was having an amazing day.Matty Sweetman on our side was having a blinder and got nicely rewarded with the mug for the game. We managed to hold out against two of Subs’ corner attempts and then Lachy got sent off with a yellow card, his second one this week to put us a man down with ten minutes to go. This was just the edge that Subs needed and they scored a breakaway field goal while we were a man down with 6 minutes to go.
Our trapping was poor, our marking was a little bit average and our communication needed a lot of improvement. It was these basics which saw us throw away the match in the second half to see the final score at 3-2 against us.

Samn.

I got asked to do the graphics for this event.

It’s a movie screening night.

You’re more than welcome to attend. Let me know what you think about the job I did!

I finally did it

I gave blood.

To all the haters out there who think because I’m a Vegan, that I’m weak, and have to be low on iron because I don’t take supplements.

You’re wrong. My levels were perfect and they want my blood.

So after so many attempts, I’ve finally been able to give the gift straight from the heart.

You should too.

I have this.


Apparently I’ve been suffering from this for a decade now, ever since I got thrown over a cliff by a horse on family holidays in the Drakensberg Mountains.
My snowboarding injury in Japan a few weeks ago has made my condition severely worse.

I’m getting an MRI tomorrow – slightly petrified as I am claustrophobic, to ensure nothing is broken and that nothing more is damaged.
Looks like my treatment will be the invasive injections filled with cortisone for 12 – 18months.
~fun~

Evacuation

So the area where I live keeps on getting hit by bushfires.
Apparently 167 fires have been lit in my suburb in the last 2 years. The reason why this is such a bad thing, is because our housing estate is surrounded by hundreds of hectares of bushland in the form of regional parks.
That’s a very scary thought. A couple of fired have come really close and scared the hell out of me, the most recent one actually saw me fleeing my house on Sunday.

 

I’d never thought about it too much before but here was my dilemma.

What do you grab from your house when you think it might burn down and not be there when you return?

I grabbed my dog, his water bowl, his leash, my computer, a change of clothes and my massive file of paperwork (birth certificates/passports/educational qualifications etc)

Sunday was very stressful, not knowing whether the house would be there or not, and seeing the massive mushroom of smoke from 30 kilometres away.



I returned with my dog at around 9pm that night and found it still standing. Apparently the 80 amazing firefighters had protected all the houses and buildings, even though the fire had swallowed up 212 hectares of land. The fire however was still not under control.
That night I slept terribly with the house being filled with smoke and I cough and spluttered my way through.
The next morning I grabbed the same items again, when I left the house in the wee hours of the morning. I dropped Benny off at a safe garden about 15 kilometres away, and headed to work. By the time we returned at 7 on Monday evening the fire had been controlled and it was safe once again.


I just don’t understand why people would even consider lighting fires.
How can they be so inconsiderate and stupid?
