Southern Breakers travelled to Plympton to take on the Bulldogs in the under 15 competition.
In the first five minutes Breakers scored through McDonald. The Breakers were unlucky not to score again when Peters shot ricocheted off the upright for the keeper to pounce on. The Bulldogs hit back with a fast break to equalise 1-1. Beaton started to find time and space with the ball and soon had the Breakers' second and before the half time break, Beaton had his second and the Breakers third giving the team a comfortable 3-1 lead at half time.
In the second half the Breakers controlled the tempo of the game with good ball movement and possession. the Breakers defence of Hird, Bell, Rennerts and Anderson were playing well and giving the Bulldogs attackers no chances.
Midway through the half, Beaton buried his hat trick and then from a corner kick, Peters scored the Breakers fifth with a solid header. The match finished 5-1 with a dominant performance from the Breakers.

Round 3 had Breakers travel to Marden Sports Complex to take on Adelaide Blue Eagles. The reserve game saw Breaker pinch the lead just before halftime when a ball in from Aaron Houghton found Mogs who steered the ball past the keeper.

Breakers won 3-2. Best players were Lee Coles, Zak Garland, Josh Peters, Mogs Nair and Aaron Houghton. Special mention to Brady Southwell who played an excellent first game for the club.
