FOSTER v STONY CREEK
Where is it being played?: Toora Football Ground
What time is the seniors game scheduled to start?: 2:30pm
Everyone following the Alberton Football League this season will know that Foster has been the team to beat from early on. The question will be is can they continue their impressive form when it matters?
From the outside looking in, one would suggest there’d be no reason why they couldn’t, but the pressure of finals – added with the fact they’ve lost just the one game all year – can do funny things to a club. The Tigers, however, have ball winners all over the field and if they given room to move their run and carry is wonderful to watch.
Stony Creek have come good at the business end of the year but whether they can match it with the likes of the Tigers will be another story. When they have a spread of goal kickers the Lions generally come up with the goods and could be key if they are to secure an underdog victory. If their goal avenues are limited their opponents often become the victors. In their Round 7 clash against each other Stony’s ability to move forward with any purpose was severely hampered after quarter time.
Both sides have a had a week to freshen up so there will be no excuses for either side. In their previous encounters this season, Foster have a clean sweep of the ledger, winning each encounter by 22, 55 and 38 points respectively.
