What a marvellous day at Houghton Memorial Oval!
The sun was out, and it was the perfect atmosphere for Houghton Raider's Family Day!
The Reserves kicked off the day with yet another resounding win over Golden Grove. Final Score 20.21 141 to 2.1 13. Best players included T. Ferris, T. Almond, T. Camilleri, B. Johnson, B. Kroepsch.
Following the Reserves game, the HDFC Junior Exhibition game got underway, with a huge crowd looking on. The HDFC and Modbury Under 8s put on a great show, making the most of the relaxed format and a bigger playing field.
The kids lined up in a Guard of Honour to cheer on the HDFC A Grade as they entered the field, with HDFC Captain (and Modbury U8s Coach), Nathan Hall, at the fore.
The A Grade demolished Golden Grove, with Loky Anderson booting 10 goals, 9 of which came in the second half. Final Score 25.13 163 to 5.3 33. Best players included L. Anderson, J. Davis, M. Sharpe, J. Mcmurtrie, J. Schulz.
The weekend was topped off with the HDFC U8s having a great game on Sunday morning against Golden Grove. Well done, kids!
HDFC would like to thank the Modbury Hawks for joining us on our Family Day. We hope to continue the tradition in the future.
