Round 3 Vs Colonel Light Gardens

Not a good weekend for Parkies with both grades copping a loss. The B Grade were more than competitive in terrible conditions not seen at The Den for years. In the best were Shaun Kelsall, Al Driver and the returning Bluedog at full back. Kym Logan was best on ground in a nuggety performance. Despite our best efforts Colonel Light Gardens ran out winners 7.12 - 54 to 3.4 - 22.

A big thanks goes out to Sambo for his excellent performance on the bugle. His rendition of the Last Post was flawless and created an awesome atmosphere.

The A grade were so impressed with Sambo's bugling that I think they forgot to play football. Colonel Light Gardens kicked the first 4 unanswered goals in what felt like the first 2 minutes. Down 9 goals to 4 at three quarter time we were still in with a chance but CLG were too strong and kicked away to win by 50 odd points.

Skitz, Potters, Nat, Sarge and young Stiffy were our best with Skitz winning the ANZAC medal.

Oh and I got sent off.
