Round 3 vs Claremont
Lindisfarne did a lot of the early attacking but it was Claremont that struck first via their captain Nathan Brown. The game was then interrupted by a sour incident off the ball that left Lindisfarne forward Jake McPherson unconscious. After a holdup of over half an hour the ambulance was cleared from the field and play resumed with Lindisfarne once again doing all the attacking as they went in to quarter time with a handy 3 goal lead.
Lindisfarne continued the onslaught in the second quarter and by half time had stretched the lead to 39 points. The flow of the game did not really change throughout with Lindisfarne extending their lead at every break and running away winners by 67 points. Cal Mitchell was absolutely dominant in an ominous sign of things to come for opposing teams. Troy Cunliffe was at his usual best racking up 36 disposals, 9 tackles and 2 goals. Declan Crawford and Jimmy Mitchell were impenetrable in defense whilst Kase Miller and Matt Hutchinson provided run and poise all day. Up forward it was Ollie ‘Rev’ Rand that did most of the damage with 5 goals earning himself a cake on the day. That cake will be baked lovingly by Jack Anning who could have had a cake himself had he converted better than the 2.7 he dished up from his 13 shots on goal. Feel free to get Claudia to help you with the cake there Tiprat.
As you can see, Claudia wasn’t impressed with Jack’s effort that night.
