Revolution Finish Top Four in Impressive International Cup Run

The Revolution came up short in their bid for third place going down to the New Zealand Hawks 12.4 (76) to 6.5 (41).  it was a short turn around for the Revos after their hard hitting game against Papua New Guinea just 2 days earlier.  Looking to match their best ever finish at the International Cup the boys came out strong and confident in their game plan.  Unfortunately the Hawks had done their homework and were prepared for what the Revos had in store.

Brent Mergen, Jon Loring, Luke Nemeth and Pat Miller stood strong in the backline.  Steve Fashant and Mel Chen put in a tough day's work in the middle, while Bryan Dragus found his form again, kicking another 4 goals.

3rd Place in Sight for Revolution and Freedom

Both the Revolution and Freedom will be playing for a 3rdplace finish to the International Cup after coming up short in their semi-final matches today.  The Revolution v Papua New Guinea Mosquitoes match generated an energetic buzz at Royal Park.  The Premier of Victoria Mr. Ted Baillieu was on hand for the coin toss,  AFL CEO, Andrew Demetriou was seen around the Revolution quarter time huddle and International Cup Ambassador, Brett Kirk gave the three quarter time speech.

Revolution Look to Tame Lions in Curtain Raiser to Swans v Saints Game

 The Revolution vs. South Africa Lions game has been selected by the AFL to be the curtain raiser for Sunday’s Sydney Swans vs. St. Kilda Saints at ANZ Stadium. Coach Matt Bishop summed up the experience, “The game against South Africa is a fantastic opportunity for the squad to play a game with such high stakes at a state of the art venue, one that most Australians will never get.” An additional highlight on the day will be a visit by US Ambassador to Australia, Jeffrey Bleich who will address the team prior to the game and perform the coin toss.

Revolution Slice Samurai

The Revolution came into their game against Japan looking to build upon the momentum they established in their first two victories in round 1.  The determination and desire was evident from the opening bounce.  The Revos moved the ball in to their forward 50 quickly and it rarely left that end of the ground.  Jesse Leos got the scoring started with an early goal and Andy Vanica, Bryan Dragus (2), Jacob Moyer and Donnie Lucero rounded out the scoring in a dominant opening term. The next three quarters were much the same as the Revos ran away with a 17.12 (114) to 0.1 (1) victory.
