Men of Bentstix

Eight years in the making!

It’s been 8 years in the making, and for the first time in the history of Bentstix, our mens team won the minor premiership – finishing on top of the ladder – and taking out our first ever grand final. Right from the beginning of the season, the 7th grade team showed huge promise, scoring plenty of goals, and smashing many of their early opponents. The strategy for the 2013 season was to focus on developing as a competitive team, by working on our press, out-letting, set plays and communication.

The season became a little bit tougher in the latter matches, due to many of the team heading overseas to Antwerp in order to compete in the Wold Out Games. To the clubs delight, they made us all very proud and helped Australia take out the gold!

Throughout the season, the division 7 team was supported by a number of our more experienced players in the division 8 team who continued to step up and prove to the coaches that the club has a great deal of talent, and depth.

Development / Social Team

After a successful 2012 season, and an increased emphasis on recruiting new players, 2013 saw many new faces join the club. We were also lucky enough to welcome back a number of club ex-pats who had been busy traveling, or living elsewhere due to work commitments.  This allowed Bentstix to field two teams; a very competitive 7th grade team, and a developing, more social 8th grade team.

Division 8 coach, Chris Entwhistle spent the season helping the team develop new skills, combine as a cohesive unit, and welcoming inexperienced players to the club. After a tough year initially on the scoreboard, the boys have rallied together to improve out of sight, making them a team to watch in 2014.
