Round 1 - 29/4/2007 St Mary's 1.2.8 - v - Park Orchards 12.8.80
In the first half, the team was not playing to their potential. In the second half, the team tried extra hard - they played and tackled harder, and helped each other in most positions. A better effort.

Round 2 - 6/5/2007 St Mary's 1.9.15 - v - Banyule 12.5.77
Very slow start again. Our 3 top players being away with illness, our team could have kicked more goals - they kicked 1 goal, 9 behinds. That could have given them the confidence they needed. Banyule are a very good tall, running side and I thought the team were very competitive in patches.
