Round 5 Reports – 2011

 

Round 5 Reports -V- Huonville at Huonville

The Lindisfarne Football Club wishes to announce Co-Op Toyota of Argyle St as a new major sponsor for the Nu-Jet Blues for the 2011 Season.  Co-Op have been supporting football in southern Tasmania for decades and continue to do so with this signing.  With Toyota as the naming sponsor for the AFL Season, it provides a natural space for Co-Op Toyota to fill in our league in Southern Tasmania.  Please contact Co-Op for all your new cars needs.  The Club thanks Brad Costelloe, Stuart Hawkesford and the whole team from servicing, spare parts, retail, fleet and administration at Co-Op and we look forward to a long future together.  Remember: when you thinks cars – think Co-Op.

I’d also like to welcome all the past LFC players who have come in from interstate this week who are watching today’s game and wish them well.

Seniors

After a very disappointing first half, which saw the Nu-Jet Blues trailing by three goals, a good spray from Coach Goodwin got the Seniors to regroup.  With a greater determination, the boys met the Lions front-on and proved that the Blues are in this season to win.  The tenacity and fitness which is a hallmark of this season’s group won out on the day.  Even with the siren blowing twice as Mitch Williamson took the final kick in both the 3rd and final quarters.  Although a small margin separated the teams at the end of the match, it proves that Lindisfarne is a true contender for finals this year.  Leading goal-kickers were Williamson with five and Marriott with three.  Excellent performances from “Pup” Clark, “Squish” Hobden, Flood and “I get bums on seats” Batt.  We look forward to playing the Glenorchy Magpies this week at home in front of supporters, sponsors and our past player visitors.

Reserves

The Reserves played some hard-fought football in a low-scoring game.  With the score on the cutting-edge throughout the whole game, the 30 minute final quarter saw the Lions boot the final goal in a closely contested match to equalise the scores.  Unfortunately, the siren sounded on the final bounce to see a rare draw.  Great, competitive football was the winner on the day with Dave Woolley, Dex Bertoldo, Chris Turner and “Tonguer” Clarke excelling.

Colts

The newly-formed Lindisfarne Colts suffered their first defeat for 2011 at the hands of the Lions last week.  Even with seasoned Colts campaigners Jye Bannister, Nathon Brown, Jordan Watson and Jordan McCullum, the Nu-Jet Colts were underdone against a more experienced side.  The hard-playing Huonville boys showed the new recruits the style of play which wins SFL competitions:  tenacity.  However, Jacob Walker, Jordan Rogerson and Arnie Kelly proved their worth and played well against a style of play against which they were not accustomed.  The young bloods of the day have learned from last week and hope to make a good impression this week against the Magpies at home.

Round 17 Colts Report

Saturday saw the colts take on the Central Hawks at Anzac Park.

 
Going into the game we knew that the Hawks were going to throw everything at us and we were determined to start well.
 
Our pressure around the ground was fierce and our midfield were on top and we went into the major break 3 goals up.  This should of been more but credit has to be given to the hawks defence as they continuelly rebounded it out.
 
The second half saw the boys continue to pile on the pressure and we ran out 8 goals victors.
 
We now look forward to our 2 remaining games full of confidence and with a great opportunity to finish the year well.
 
Better players for the day included Jai Bannister & Jy Sullivan in the middle, Bodie Savage & Brad Riley down back and Shaun 'Froggy' Frogson booted 4 goals up forward.

Round 16 Reserves Report

Injuries and player unavailability has been costly for the club this year and especially so the weekend just past, when an undermanned reserves side took on the undefeated Kingborough Tigers.

We eventually scrapped a side together with the help of four Colts players in Jordan Mccallum, Jai Bannister, Luke Alsford and Kieren Isles who doubled up to ensure a full squad hit the field.

The side played good football for the first half as we applied as much pressure to our opponents as we could, but their better skills and speed eventually wore us down and being a well drilled side kicked away from us in the second half.  To our credit we battled hard all day and we could walk off the ground knowing that at least the group that took to the field where out their playing for each other.

Our back line was terrific all day considering the amount of football that was in their area.  Mick Grimsey played the majority of the game injured; Daniel Donavan continued to spoil his taller opponent and Wally Dare, Mick Hemming and Adrian Pennicott repelled as best they could.

Andrew Kennedy is starting to find some good form and set the scene early with some courageous football.  Chris Russell toiled all day in the ruck.  Jordan Watson played well above his years, as he was on the bottom of many packs and got plenty of possessions.

Some positives to come from the day were that we won the last quarter and the young players that played showed that they are well capable of playing in this grade and above.

This weekend we need to bounce back when we take on the Central Hawks at home, who are breathing down our necks on the ladder.

Round 11 Colts Report

Saturday saw the colts take on last years premiers Brighton at Anzac Park.
 
Conditions were good but there was a stiff breeze blowing towards the tennis-court end.
 
Brighton kicked with the breeze in the opening term and, although we won our fair share of ball in the midfield, there class shone through and they went into the first break 40 points up.  Second quarter our boys dug deep, and with the midfield on top, we kicked 4 of the first 5 goals of the quarter before Brighton got a couple back in the latter stages.  Second half the boys tried gallantly and down to just 18 players we fought on although eventually going down by 75 pts.
 
Best players for the day included Jai Bannister, Raedan Smedley, Jordan McCullum, Ian Mckenzie and the entire backline stood up despite being under constant pressure.
 
This week we look forward to Triabunna at Anzac park in which should be a close encounter.
