While the team is now looking forward to the finals, things weren’t so simple last time Ellinbank faced Buln Buln.
“Last time we played Buln Buln, they came up and didn’t really leave anything behind and we were caught a bit off guard,” Ellinbank A Grade coach Taylah Wallace told the Baw Baw Citizen.
“This time around we were prepared, they were going to come out again fighting and giving everything they had and we made sure we played our game.”
So what was so different this time around?
“Last time we played them we had a few players out and were still trying to find our feet,” Taylah said.
“This time we worked on a few attacking strategies to make sure we could get all our goals in effectively and quickly and scoring off all our turnovers as well.”
Ellinbank is now looking forward to a game against Catani, who currently hold third on the ladder.
“We’ll have all have our full strength, and we’ll have all nine players back this week (having had one person away for the Buln Buln game),” Taylah said.
“We’ll just have to make sure we get the rotations right and have the match-up against their players correct as well so we can hopefully come away with another win.
“We’ve had a really good season and we’re looking forward to the finals series as well.”
