Round 1 Seniors Match Report – 2012

2012 Round 1 Lindisfarne -v- Dodges ferry
Coach Adrian Goodwin has a Pre-game Meeting with the Senior side

After a long tough pre season the Lindisfarne Nu-Jet Two Blues headed to Dodges Ferry for their first roster game of the 2012 season. After 4 solid practice matches and a week off over Easter the boys were cherry ripe and chomping at the bit to get out on the park.

The senior group had a number of debutants on the weekend which included David Clark, Rubin Smith, Robbie Jackman, and Nathan Mills on duel registration from Clarence. We also had former LFJC players Jake Jenkins and Marty Alison playing their first senior game for the club, very pleasing to see a few lads progressing through the underage pathway into the senior ranks.

The group also welcomed back former players Nick Braslin and Gavin Quirk. Great to see these boys back in the Two Blues line up.

After watching Menza’s group in the Reserves register a fantastic win, the boys ran out onto a very hot and humid Shark Park. The opening quarter saw plenty of tough contested footy with both teams applying quality physical pressure, the boys settled through goals to Marriot and Fitzgibbon and went into ¼ time 2.5 17 to Dodges Ferry 3.1 19.

The 2nd quarter was begun very much like the first with not much separating both teams. With hot playing conditions the two Goody’s had the bench working over time with rotations. With all the boys putting in a super pre season we were already able to see the benefits of this in our fitness levels for the first game. Goals to Swan and Fitzgibbon saw us enter half time with a small advantage 4.8 32 to Dodges Ferry 3.5 23. Captain Justin Myers along with Jamie Ford and Nick Hobden were leading the way for the Two Blues down back.

The second half remained a close hard fought contest with the Two Blues controlling majority of the play but unable to put the results on the scoreboard. Jenkins and Alison bobbed up to register their first goals for the club, with many more to follow no doubt.

The final siren sounded with the Two Blues registering a close 9 point victory, a fantastic way to start the 2012 season. The margin could have been greater if we had kicked straight in the final term, however a victory at Shark Park is never easy so we were wrapt to take the 4 points away and have the club walk away with 2 wins.

Lindisfarne 7.22 64 Def Dodges Ferry 8.7 55

Best players for the day were: Myers, Ford, Alison, N. Hodben, M. Phillips, Mills

Goals: Fitzgibbon 2, Marriot, Swan, Alison, Jenkins 1

We now look forward to our first home game this weekend against Brighton. This game will be a great challenge for the boys to test ourself against another strong SFL opponent. We have built up a great rivalry with Brighton over the past few seasons so we’d love to see as many supporters as possible turning up to support the boys taking on the Robins.

Players/Supporters are also reminded about our first club function for the year kicking off at 7pm at the club rooms.

Round 13 Senior Report

Last week saw us travel up to Boyer to take on New Norfolk which is always a tough challenge but we headed up there with confidence after winning our last four matches.

The first quarter saw us get off to a good start; controlling most of the play and being first to the ball which enabled us to get the ball into our forward line many times and give our forward players many chances.  Unfortunately for us, I felt we didn’t take full advantage of this; kicking 3.3.21 for the quarter to new Norfolk’s one behind.  Even though we had a lead of 20 points at the first break, I felt our lead should have been two or three goals more.

The second quarter saw New Norfolk take control with them kicking 6.4 to our 2.1 giving them a lead of seven points at half time.

The third quarter, I think, was an even contest, with the footy continually going up and down both ends of the ground with both defences standing up to the pressure.  New Norfolk won the quarter by 11 points, leaving us 18 points behind going into the last.

Bracken scored the first goal of the last quarter and Tubb had a chance just minutes later but missed the shot on goal which would have got us to within a kick and maybe even an upset on the cards.  However, New Norfolk steadied; kicking away in the last half of the quarter, winning the game by 44 points.

I thought our attitude, attack on the ball, and the way we played was very good which enabled us to compete and prove to each other that we are capable of matching it with the teams above us on the ladder.

Best players were: D Scott, S Bester, N McWilliams, J White, J Fielding and G Quirk.

Round 12 Senior Report

Last week’s game saw us take on the struggling Triabunna Kangaroos who are yet to register a win this season and it was important for us to get a big victory to boost our percentage which may play a part in the positioning of the ladder later on in the season.

From the first bounce to the final siren I felt we were in total control of the game and it was pleasing to see that we got off to a great start kicking 12.6 to one behind in the first quarter, coming to the break with a 77 point lead.

From there on the game became scrappy with a lot of stoppages around the ground and not a lot of free-flowing footy going on.

The thing that was most pleasing was that we stuck to structures and played for each other and didn’t become selfish which at times can happen when you’re dominating a game.

The only disappointing part on our behalf was our inaccuracy in front of goal, finishing the match with 25 goals, 28 behinds which means that that we kicked 13 goals 22 behinds since quarter time which is something we have to improve.

The end result was a 163 point victory which will give us confidence heading into the next round against a very tough opponent in New Norfolk at Boyer.

Best players were: M Phillips, B Phillips, T Bracken, J Tubb, N Braslin  and D Scott

Round 11 Reserves Report

The Lindisfarne reserves side took on Brighton at Anzac Park in what was a crucial game for the side.  It was a third versus fourth battle with both teams on the same amount of points and the winner would find a little breathing room in third spot and still give them selves a chance of a top two finish.

We started the game with some good intensity and gave our forward a lot of football but due to the swirling wind, we did not capitalize and kicked a poor 2 goals and 8 points.  If we could of made the most of these opportunities we could have had the game well and truly in our grasp.

In the second quarter, Brighton was never going to lie down and they started to wrestle some momentum back their way as we started to play some lazy football. Lucky for us our forwards started to capitalize and we went into the long break with a 16 point lead.

The second half was played much the same as the first but our intensity was back in our game and our tackling pressure was terrific.

Josh McWilliams and Chris Russell were good contributors in the ruck.  Chris Turner went about his business in his usual no fuss way.  The attack on the football by Mick Grimsey and Phil Ashlin was important for us.  Up forward the elusive Mark Rutherford and skillful Henry Pfieffer gave their opponents grief and Jamie Tubb playing a dual role on the ball and up forward showed a huge work rate.
