Our round 16 clash seen us up against East Keilor at East Keilor, off the back of a bye along with EK starting to hit some form we all were well aware that this game was going to be a tough one.

The first quarter was a scrappy affair with us kicking into a strong wind – our backs led by the ever reliable Jono Hardman stood strong and didn’t let a goal through for the quarter leaving us going into the break 4 points up.

We went into the second quarter needing to capitalize kicking with the wind in order to break away from EK, although unfortunately this didn’t eventuate with EK able to play strong defensive football across the ground in turn leaving us scoring a solitary point for the quarter, having us go into the main break 3 points ahead of EK.

In the third quarter we started off as we finished in the second, unable to break the game open. EK started to pull away kicking 3 straight goals, although finally we started to play the footy we are known for, moving the ball well and finally hitting the score board, kicking 2 goals into the breeze to go into the last change 15 points down.

The fourth quarter again started as a scrappy affair with us unable to break the game open, although we persisted and began to score with goals from Laurie and Becker bringing us within striking distance, although unfortunately this wasn’t enough with the final siren going with us trailing by 3 points.

A learning curve for us not to under estimate our opponents as well as persisting with playing our brand of footy, we go into this week’s game against Hillside needing to win to be a chance to retain 2nd spot. 

Best Players – Smith, Scott, Geyer, Flannagin, Hardman, Steele

Under 17 semi final   Tullamarine 4.6-30 d Oak Park 3.8-26, Congratulations

Wow what a fairy tale story we have scripted to date. Undermanned and never played together before, the under 17s have earnt a spot in the Grand Final.

A strong week on the track again with plenty of tempo running and ball work, we felt very ready for a big final. So drawn at Keilor Park where it all began for us in April was a small omen for us. We had played 3 games there this year all successful wins.

First quarter we had a 4 goal breeze, we didn’t use it finishing with 1 goal 4 to Oak Park zero. Very tough breeze, but Oak Park defended well.

Second quarter was a very similar tale. Oak park kicked 1 goal 5 for the full 20 mins, then took a mark on the siren to kick a second goal. They led by 7 points at half time.

I sent the side the same way we lined up in the first quarter and instructed us to go down the middle only, and they responded, kicking 4 goals with the wind , But Oak park on the back of a terrible error by us kicked a very important goal for them into the breeze , putting us under pressure in the last quarter.

So a few changes made, with Zack Zuhlke moving into the middle and Liam Montrose onto the wing for the start of the last. And it worked, Zack had taken the ball out of the middle a few times and taken some solid marks around the ground, whilst Liam before have a shocking injury ,set us up along the wing playing the boundary line as instructed. Oak park had only had 3 behinds in the last quarter due to the Tullamarine pressure, finally we held on for a huge 4 point win and a spot in the Grand Final.

I have never seen a bunch of young men grow so much in 6 months. They have matured so much and the way they play for each other is the reason for this success. In no way shape or form are we the most talented, but by god we are the most committed.

Dylan Watt was by far our best on the day, taking over 12 marks and just holding the back line together. Whilst our COMP BEST AND FAIREST MATT WATTS led the way again.

We had winners all day and I could not be any more prouder of these sensational kids. 

GO TUALLA , let’s bring this flag home.

Rd 17 Seniors  v Hillside @ Tullamarine 12th August 2017

Tullamarine 9.10.64 def. by Hillside 13.12.90

In – Foote, Baressi

Out – Ferzulla, Devine

Our final home game of the year was up against the 2nd place Sydenham, obviously a massive game for us as put us in the position to move up to second and having to luxury of a second chance come finals.

The first quarter started how we finished to game before, with us trailing the opposition to the ball at the majority of contests – which in turn had Sydenham kick the first four goals of the game; we were fortunately able to snag the last to go into the first change trailing by 3 straight goals.

In the second term we were on the verge of playing the footy we know we can play getting a couple of goals early from Robinson and Flanagan, although multiple acts of undisciplined play let the Sharks back into game and they led us at the main break 20 points.

The third finally had us playing the Tulla brand of footy, strong over the ball and attacking – led by Sims and Harward through the middle we drove forward on a regular basis having 9 scoring shorts to 5 for the quarter to have us within striking distance of 12 points at the last change.

The final term was a scrappy affair, again with us not playing the discipline footy we need to be to be the side we want to be, whilst going forward an even number of times Hillside were able to cover where and when it mattered finishing the game 26 points up.

Overall a disappointing effort, we now will finish third and will need a strong performance this week over a fast finishing Oak Park.

Best Players – Nikolik, Sims, Scott, Mulvaney, Bartrop, Harward.

Under 17's Grand Final

Well , finally the day had arrived , a Grand Final , at Keilor on a perfect winters day. The week leading up to this day was outstanding. We had trained at Keilor on the Monday with Mick Maguane having a big chat with the boys and getting us up. Tuesday and Thursday were great training sessions and at a high standard and on Friday, we all went to a movie together. So a really enjoyable Grand Final week.

Sunday was huge, a big crowd , sunny warm day and the scene was set.

First Quarter was excellent, we hit the ground running kicking the first 2 goals of the game, with many more opportunities, but with 3 minutes left in the quarter, Oak Park kicked 3 goals to lead by a point . Very disappointing, and that set the tone.

Second term was goal for goal. We would kick one then it would be answered quickly by Oak Park. The game was fast and at a great standard. Half time there was only a couple of goals in it.

Third term was a different story, Oak Park really bodied us out of the contest and used the ball so much better than us. Our top players were held well which made it hard for us to get it into their hands and use it. Oak Park also had some very lucky goals from the boundary line and bouncing their way.

Last term was hard, we were down by 5 goals and needed to kick the first 2 quickly to get back into the game, but is ended up being a scrap, and very hard for us to peg it back. We tried to play on at all costs, but Oak Parks defence was strong. Finally going down by 5 goals.

Although it was a very disappointing day result wise, we have won our own mini premiership.  To come from nothing in January with 2 players, and finish with 27 players, being put up from Division 5 to Division 4, then be beaten by 20 goals for 4 weeks straight and come back and win every game to finish 2nd then win the first place in the Grand Final is a testament to the strength of the boys. The year has a huge fairy-tale story about it, and we have achieved so much more than a premiership, we have bonded a special bunch of kids, that are the future of the Tullamarine Football club, The resilience to keep winning against bigger teams, more experienced teams and come together as mates in 6 months is an outstanding achievement.  

I could not of been more proud as a coach and as a Tullamarine Member.  We will only get bigger and better next year. Thank you to all who supported the under 17s this year, it was a great journey.

Round 18 – Seniors v Oak Park @ Oak Park 19th August 2017 Oak Park 10.5.65 def by Tullamarine 22.18.150

In – Liberatore, Port   Out – Smith, Campos

Our final round clash was up against the at times dangerous Oak Park at JP Fawkner Reserve, after a couple of disappointing weeks we were fully aware that we need to switch back on to ensure we gave ourselves the best possible preparation coming into finals.

It was the Tulla of old that started off in the first quarter, tough & disciplined footy seen us get the jump early on Oak Park, with Simmons fresh back from his trip to Europe and stint in the twos driving us forward at will to give us the early jump. Late goals to Oak Park brought them back within 19 points at the break.

Oak Park came out strong in the second, playing good footy across the ground – kicking the first couple of the quarter. Strong defensive efforts starting from our general Steele down back held us in good stead, having us up by the reduced margin of 9 points at the main break.

It is said class rises to the top when the pressure is on, and this is exactly what happened in the third term with us finally putting our best football together at once, the quarter of the year so far capped off with an outstanding 4 and 3 goal respective quarters to our starting mids Sims and Burns seen us pull away from Oak Park to be 63 points up at the last change.

It was much the same in the final term with Oak Park not showing the intensity needed to be able pull the game back within reach, we slammed on another 6 goals and it was only 3 late term goals from OP that stopped it from being a major blow out. We finished the game up by the impressive sum of 86 points.

Some great signs to come out of the game, although that is now done, our focus purely now on this week’s elimination final against Airport West on Sunday at Windy Hill.

Best Players – Sims, Burns, Robinson, Mulvaney, Simmons, Liberatore.
