Round 1 - 29/4/2007 St Mary's 10.10.70 - v - Beverley Hills 9.8.62
Great start to the season, boys! We showed the endeavour and mental toughness needed to outrun a quality side. A terrific "team effort" under immense pressure. Well Done!

Round 2 - 6/5/2007 St Mary's 11.4.70 - v - Glen Iris 14.16.100
A good solid effort for three quarters. Unfortunately, three quarters isn't enough to win a game. The intensity and endeavour was terrific! We just need to run harder and longer against quality opposition.

Round 3 - 13/5/2007 St Mary's 18.17.125 - v - Surrey Park 6.7.43
We ran for four quarters - the result speaks for itself! Terrific backline pressure which allowed us to attack relentlessly. Again, a team effort wins games. I'm very proud of all 20 players today!

Round 4 - 20/5/2007 St Mary's 12.17.89 - v - Park Orchards 12.9.81
We came up against last year's finalist. They applied immense pressure from the start! We applied more! Again, you boys never stoppd running and harassing. A sheer gutsy "come from behind" win. A total team effort for four quarters. Well done to all 20 players.

Round 5 - 27/5/2007 St Mary's 8.12.60 - v - Ashburton 16.5.101
We went into this game overconfident. We were totally outplayed by a more disciplined, committed team. If you are not prepared to run with your man, you can't expect to win! Out-gunned all over the ground today.

Round 6 - 3/6/2007 St Mary's 14.10.94 - v - Banyule 13.9.87
We started asleep again! At quarter time, we found ourselves 33 points behind. Then we started to run in numbers and hunt in packs. The scoreline turned very quickly and we found ourselves back in the game. Team work prevailed and we over ran the opposition. A fantastic come from behind win. Well done to all 20 Players.

Round 8 - 24/6/2007 St Mary's 11.5.71 - v - Hawthorn Citz. 14.15.105
Disappointing result boys. We seem to think that we can just come from behind whenever we like. Not today!! Beaten by a more committed, disciplined side that wanted the win more than us. We need to get back to the basics of football.

Round 9 - 1/7/2007 St Mary's 13.10.88 - v - Preston 11.5.71
By far the most pleasing win of the season so far. The scoreboard does not reflect the tremendous courage and determination shown in very tough conditions. Our defensive game was the key to our win. 19 very commited players today!! Very well done boys.

Round 10 - 15/7/2007 St Mary's 4.11.35 - v - Beverley Hills 8.8.56
The opposition worked harder, smarter and longer than us. We only had two 10 minute patches of excellent play. Not enough. Keep your heads up and move on to next week. Well tried, in tough conditions.

Once again boys, courage, teamwork and a 'never say die' attitude!! Hard at it for 4 quarters and able to withstand evrything thrown at you. The backline held strong and gave us the momentum to carry the ball forward. A terrific "TEAM" effort, and another hurdle out of the way. YOU CAN DO THIS!!

I guess the best team won on the day! With great pride I say that the most courageous, unselfish, committed team ran short by 2 points. You guys have a great deal to be proud of, in the way you got the job done this year. We may not be the champion team this year but all 22 of you are Club heroes for your efforts. Well done Men!
