It was a great turnaround considering their last quarter fade out against Ascot Vale in round 2. That's 4 out of 5 for Coburg and 4-points clear in third place.
The defence was brilliant keeping Ascot Vale goalless for the entire match and the effort was capped off with a 5-goal last quarter which also included a “supergoal” from Rodney Craig.
Theo Grimaldi ran through the banner accompanied by his daughters and joined in the on-field party with a goal of his own in the second quarter. It was fitting performance both honouring the “T” and the Ladies Days fundraiser.
Despite wayward kicking in front of goal the Reserves had crushing 60-point victory ending a mini drought that had dogged them in the last three rounds.
There was plenty to like about the win, energy, effort and positivity were the order of the day with only blight being inaccuracy that resulted in 21 behinds being kicked on day. Coburg murdered Ascot Vale in the centre clearances and if they had their kicking boots on the victory might have been much greater.
Jason Baker and Marco Rabar landed 3 goals apiece in the top notch effort.
Disappointingly the Supers once again failed to fire a shot after half-time going down 41-points in an insipid performance that left everyone at the ground wondering why Coburg are unable to put teams to the sword when they get themselves in a good position to do so.
It’s twice in as many matches that the Coburg have gone scoreless in the third term allowing their opponents a sniff. At times it was an selfish and undisciplined performance marred by a lack of desire, urgency and the appetite for the contest. Seemingly Coburg have forgotten how to win.
The coaching staff know the team have the personnel and capability, we’ve witnessed the effort in patches, the players now just need to find the necessary spark to get the season back on track.
