Match Reports are thanks to Scott Stevens (CDFC Development Manager)
ROUND 11 MATCH WRAP UP -
It was a case of so near but yet so far for the Under 18’s.
The young Under 18 side lost by 2 points to South Adelaide on Saturday. For three and a half quarters they gave their all, but just couldn’t hold on.
The boys can be proud of their effort but they just need to be a little better in those crucial moments.
Goals – Tyrone Milera, Ethan East 3, Brad Pilkington, Daniel Roennfeldt, Tyson Richerd, Jack Carpenter, Owen John 1
Best – Ethan East, Brad Pilkington, Mitchell Payne, Oliver Shaw, Tyrone Milera, Rhys Cannizzaro
ROUND 10 MATCH WRAP UP -
BEST - Jarrod Cotgrove, Lachlan Arnold, Ethan East, Rhys Cannizzaro, Jarrad Coombe
GOALS - Ethan East 3, Tyson Richard 2, Daniel Roennfeldt 1, Jack Carpenter 1
ROUND 9 MATCH WRAP UP -
On Friday 1st June, the Under 18’s took on the Eagles under lights, at My Money House Oval.
Again, the side got away to a slow start with the Eagles getting the better of the Bulldogs in the first 20 minutes.
The pleasing thing is, the players never gave up. With this being the half way point of the season, they will need to improve on their starts as well as their goal kicking, to have a shot at September action.
Goals – Durdin, Pilkington, Milera, Carpenter, Glancey
Best – Spence, Cotgrove, Falland, Durdin, Richard, Carpenter
ROUND 8 MATCH WRAP UP -

After a slow 10 minute start, the side hit its straps and recorded a good 75 point win.

Best – Jordan O’Brien, Jack Carpenter, Samuel Falland, Rhys Cannizzaro, Oliver Shaw, Mitchel Payne
ROUND 7 MATCH WRAP UP -
In what is a character building win for the Under 18’s, a slow start to the game worried the coaching staff.
At the quarter time break, Coach Shayne Collins told the players what he thought of the quarter, and to the players credit they responded.
Goals – Lewellyn Milera, Malachai Ahmatt – Lovett 3, Tyson Richard 2, Rhys Sutton, Jack Carpenter, Leek Alleer 1
Best – Corey Durdin, Oliver Shaw, Samuel Falland, Rhys Cannizzaro, Aaron Nietschke, Connor White
ROUND 6 MATCH WRAP UP -
A poor first quarter cost the Under 18’s their game against South Adelaide on Saturday. After a rev up at quarter time, the Under 18’s outscored their opponents 8 goals to 7.
Goals – Richard 3, Ahmatt Lovett 2, Eime, Pilkington, T. Milera, Carpenter 1
Best – O’Brien, Montgomerie, T. Milera, Durdin, Eime
ROUND 5 MATCH WRAP UP -
In a game they controlled for the first half, it’s a game that got away from the Under 18’s.
The second half and the skill level was not up to the standards they have set in the first few weeks.
The players will have to bounce back quickly, as they are set to take on the top placed South Adelaide, at City Mazda Stadium this Saturday.
Goals – Richard 3, Lehman, Pilkington, Ahmatt – Lovett, Nietschke, Bonuedi 1
Best – Montgomerie, Nietschke, Payne, Ahmatt – Lovett, Arnold
ROUND 4 MATCH WRAP UP -
A slow start to the game saw Sturt jump out to a 4 goal head start, and the Under 18’s couldn’t peg the margin back.
The side never really got going until the last quarter, which was their most productive of the game.
Goals – Montgomerie, Ahmatt – Lovett 2, O’Brien, Pilkington, T. Milera, Thomson 1
Best – Montgomerie, Shaw, Nietschke, O’Brien, Smit, Spence

ROUND 1 MATCH WRAP UP -
In what was a tight game all night, the Under 18’s came away with a 10-point win.

BEST - Nietschke, Alleer, O’Brien, White, Shaw, Smitt
