Boy, Oh Boy Wowee of the Week – Round Six
ROUND SIX WINNER
The Camden Cats Premier Division Reserves team for producing one of the biggest comebacks in the clubs’ history against the Inner West Magpies.
It was a first half to forget for the Cat’s as they kicked a measly one goal, one behind and let through eight goals. This effort had them down 46-points at the main break and left a huge amount of soul searching if they were going to overcome such a deficit. During an uplifting halftime speech the Camden Cats’ Head Coach, David McCarthy, implored his players to “fire up” and instilled belief in his chargers that they could turn things around in the second half.
When the Magpies kicked the first goal of the third quarter to go up 59-7 the Cats boys could’ve quickly forgotten everything the Coach spoke about in the sheds. Instead Camden clawed their way back into the game kicking nine of the next ten goals.
The game came down to the wire with Inner West still up by five points with five seconds left on the clock. It looked like the dream comeback had all but slipped away until goal sneak, Vic Musgrave, kicked a 40-metre banana through the sticks and sealed the win for the Cats. A 52-point comeback that will be talked about for years to come.
Nomination: Stuart Farnell, Camden Cats
