CDHBU couldn’t find the goals in the first half which cost them as they went down by 70 points to Henty at Coreen on Saturday.
Power started much better than the week before and with Andrew Phibbs, Shannon Broadbent, Matthew Howard and Nathan McClelland having plenty of the ball and they looked the better side.
But kicking it through the two big sticks proved difficult as the Power could only manage six points for the quarter while Henty kicked 2.2 to lead by eight points.
The second quarter was much the same as the first, the Power just couldn’t find a way of kicking a goal.
Tom Webb was playing his best game for the season, while Tim Cooper and Andrew Ollington were playing well in defence.
Henty made the most of their time forward kicking 3.2 for the quarter while the Power kicked another six points for the quarter to trail 0.12.12 to 5.4.34 at half time.
With eight of the shots very obtainable the Power should have been three goals up not 22 points behind.
It all went downhill in the second half with the Power struggling to score.
Steven Cordwell, in his first game, got the Power’s first goal at the 15th minute mark of the third quarter but that was the Power’s only score for the quarter as Henty lead 10.8.68 to 1.12.18 at the last change.
Cooper and Ollington continued to play well in defence as they held firm and Jak Payne was providing an option at half forward but the Power just couldn’t score.
It took until Sam Haigh’s goal after the siren for the Power to register their second goal as they went down 13.17.95 to 2.13.25.
Goals: Steven Cordwell , Sam Haigh.
Best: Tim Cooper, Andrew Ollington, Andrew Phibbs, Shannon Broadbent, Jak Payne, Nathan McClelland.
CDHBU reserves took on second-placed Henty at Coreen in sunny conditions on Saturday.
An undermanned reserves side matched the intensity in the first quarter with the boys having plenty of the ball.
The boys worked hard throughout the match never giving up, however, Henty dominated the second half of the game controlling the ball across most of the key positions.
The margin could have been larger without the efforts of the backline in Geoff Harvie, Steven Talbot, Tom Hynes, Mitchell Clifton and J Hayes.
On-ballers in Doug Lavis, Paul Skate and ruckman in James Webb and Nathan Allen continued to try their hardest against the opposition.
Paddy Minogue donned the field for a match, alongside his 15-year-old son Bailey, after not playing for 12 years.
Henty 19.16.130 defeated CDHBU 2.1.13.
Goal Kickers for the Power were Nathan Allan and Tom Hynes with one goal each.
Best Players: Nathan Allan (BOG), Mitchell Clifton Bailey Minogue, Steven Talbot, James Webb, Tom Hynes.
The CDHBU under 14s come up against the top team of Henty.
The scoreboard showed a very different story as the Power boys were very competitive and played very well throughout the whole game.
They did everyone proud and they had extra motivation to do so because it was purple day.
Henty 13.4.82 defeated CDHBU 1.3.9.
