Friday and Thursday night were good, they were good. Both teams got out and then got back in the last quarter. But West Coast and St Kilda prevailed. I thought that the ones that won would lose. A couple of upsets were there. This year is so crazy, you can not pick who will win.

 

On Saturday I wake up and then I get ready for tennis. The first thing I do is warm up with my Dad because it is early. I don’t play very well because their is a digger behind us and it is smashing a house. Then when the game started it stopped and I played well. We won the doubles 6-2. Then my partner won the singles 6-4. Then my game came, for the first couple of games I smashed her. Then the digger came on and then we got to 5-5, with long rallies. In the last game the digger stopped and I won.

 

Then Dad and I went straight to brunch at cafe di crema for my dad’s birthday brunch and we caught up with the family. It is a nice little cafe. For brunch I had a croissant, they gave my nutella spread and I spread it all over the croissant and it was so good. I also had an Iced Chocolate.

 

When we got home my Dad opened his presents, the first thing that happened is my present and card. I got him a Sturt beanie and the card that I gave him said. When your at this age, just think of it as climbing another rung on the ladder. At your age the important thing is just to not look down.

 

Then after we drove to the festival theatre to see the musical, matilda. It is for my dad’s birthday and he is pretty excited. It is meant to be good. When I watched it I thought that it was okay then we went to my uncles house to see my 18 year old cousin and gave him a bottle of whiskey.

 

 

When I get home I watch the Port game, I come home half way through the 3rd quarter and I see that Port are winning but not by that much. Port’s losing margin plus Brisbane’s winning margin is 135. That means Brisbane will win by that much. They end up losing by 40. It is 175 points off.

The Walkerville Game

 

The Link

Walkerville versus Pooraka

10.50pm, Sunday 18 June,

Walkerville Oval, Adelaide

I woke up and then I got ready, the first thing that I did is get ready. I knew that I was ready to beat them. Socks up. Guernsey on. Shorts on. Bottle Filled. Boots on. I go to the game and I realize that I forgot my mouthguard. Then after that I warm up.

 

I see that the umpires are like 12. I am running off the back of the square and then go forward. I end up in the forward pocket and drop punt a goal. I end up over the top and score a goal. I have another assist and I am feeling so well. We are thrashing them.

 

At quarter time we get told that we have to keep driving the bus. We are a bit shaky in the first bit but then we keep going, I am on the bench and I am ready to go on. We are doing so well and are driving the bus. We get lots of goals over the top.

 

At half time it is the oranges. I was on the bench so I only have one orange. That is the bad thing about being off in the 2nd quarter. In the 3rd quarter, I play more in the midfield and I am the link. I give an assist. But we have a mix up and a centre square infringement.

 

In the third quarter I am off again. I see what he says. I see what he wants to say. Don’t let them score. In the last quarter we don’t do very well. But we still win by a lot and we are well and truly contenders of this 2nd on the ladder, go Cats!

 

Walkerville 13.3 81

Pooraka 1.0 6

My Premiership Race

This is a little thing that I used to do when I was younger to see who I would think would win the Premiership. Who I think will win the premiership will change throughout the season. I will do an update every time it changes. I know it is not a very good method and it is not reliable, but here goes.

 

The reigning premiers start off as favourites then whoever beats them are favourites then whoever beats them are favourites and so on. Western Bulldogs start off as favourites and they have only had one team beat them which is Fremantle and that was in Round 3. Fremantle lost against West Coast so that means that West Coast are favourites. West Coast lost to Essendon so that makes Essendon favourites. Essendon lost to Richmond so that means Richmond are favourites. Richmond lost to Sydney and Sydney haven’t lost since then so sydney are favourites.

 

This is a more complicated version of it. So the reigning premiers are the favourites and whoever beats them are favourites. If the favourites have been beaten before the round that they got beaten on then the team with highest winning margin on them and so on.

 

Western Bulldogs start favourites, the only team that has beaten them are Fremantle, Fremantle have lost 2 games. One against Geelong by 42 and the other one against Port by 89. So Port are the favourites. They have lost 2 games, 1 against Crows by 17 and 1 against GWS by 31. Therefore GWS are the favourites. GWS have only lost 1 game and that was against the Crows. The Crows have lost 1 game and that was against North Melbourne North Melbourne have lost 5 games the most against West Coast by 43.

 

West Coast have lost 2 games, the most by 50 against Hawthorn. Hawthorn have lost 5 games, the most by 86 against Gold Coast and Geelong. Gold Coast have lost 4 and Geelong have lost 2. Geelong have lost 2 games, the most against Collingwood by 29. Collingwood have lost 5 games, the most by 29 against Geelong.  Geelong have lost 2 games, the most against Collingwood by 29, we have already been down that path and it would go on a endless loop so the other team they lost to is Gold Coast.

 

Gold Coast have lost by 4 games the most by 102 against GWS. GWS have 2 games, the most by the Crows by 56, we have already been down that path so it will be on an endless loop so the other game they have lost was against Saint Kilda by  23. Saint Kilda have lost 3 games, the most by 38 against Geelong. Geelong have lost 3 games and 2 have been mentioned already, the other game was against Essendon.

 

Essendon have lost 4 games, the most by 65 against Crows. Crows have lost 2 games but we have already been down one of those paths, the one that we haven’t been down through was against Melbourne. Melbourne have lost 4 games, the most by 29 against Geelong. Geelong have lost 4 games and we have been down 3 of lose paths. The other one is against West Coast. West Coast have lost 5 games, we have already been down one of those paths. The most by 61 against Essendon. Essendon have lost 6 games, the most against the Crows but we have already been down that path so second is against Collingwood for 38. Collingwood have lost 7 games, the most by 29 against Carlton. Carlton have lost 7 games, the most by 90 against Port Adelaide.

 

Port Adelaide have lost 5 games, The most by 70 against Essendon. Essendon have lost 6 games. We have been down 2 paths so the 3rd the most losing margin is against Fremantle by 37. Fremantle have lost 6 games the most by Crows by 100. The Crows have lost 3 games the most by North Melbourne but we have already been down that path so the second highest margin is against Melbourne. Melbourne have lost 5 games the most by 29 against Geelong but we have already been down that path so the second highest margin is 14 against North Melbourne.

 

North Melbourne have lost 4 games, the most by 43 against West Coast but we have already been down that path, so the second most is by 42 against Sydney and GWS, the highest score out of them, was Sydney. Sydney have lost 6 games, the most by 42 against GWS. GWS have lost 3 games we have been down to of the paths so the only path left is against Carlton. Carlton have lost 7 games we have already been down 1 of the paths so the second highest margin is against Richmond. Richmond have lost 5  games the most by 76 against  Adelaide.

 

Adelaide have lost 3 games we have been down 2 of those paths so the only path left is against Geelong. Geelong have lost 5 games and we have been down all of those paths except against West Coast. West Coast have lost 5 games we have been down 2 of those paths. The third most is against Richmond.

 

Richmond have lost 5 games, we have already been down one of those paths so the second highest path is against Sydney. Sydney have lost 6 games, we have already been down one of those paths so the second highest is against West Coast.

 

West Coast have lost 5 games and we have already been down 3 of those paths so the fourth highest margin is against GWS by 8. GWS have lost 3 games and we have been down 3 of those paths so GWS are favourites.

 

If Greater Western Sydney and Sydney don’t lose anymore games from here they will stay favourite.
