The Lindisfarne Nu-Jet Two Blues went into their round 2 clash with 3 changes from our disappointing loss to Kingborough. Jordan Watson, Declan Crawford and Matt Stevenson came into the senior line up after pleasing performances in the Reserves. Great feeling to be back on the home turf at Anzac Park, up against a competitive Huonville outfit.
After jumping out of the blocks, the boys went into quarter time with a handy 26 point lead: 5.4 34 to Huonville 1.2 8.
Half time saw the lads with a lead of 34 points and looking to break the game open 9.12 66 to Huonville 5.2 32. Key play markers Nick Braslin, Dexter Bertoldo and Sam Proctor were all finding plenty of the footy.
The last half saw the boys really take control in the midfield and open up a match winning lead. The combination of Swan and Marriot up forward was providing plenty of headaches for the Lions defenders. By 3/4 time, the Two Blues had opened up a sizeable 47 point lead.
With plenty of midfield rotations our fitness and skill levels improved as the game went on and this was evident on the score board.
The game finished with the Two Blues running out eventual 61 point winners. Ruckman Todd Willing dominated the ruck contests all day and earned himself BOG. The ever reliable duo of David Clark and Nick Hobden showed plenty of dash and they repelled any attack that went into the back half. While the coaching staff was pleased with the result there is certainly a lot of room for improvement after our first 2 rounds of footy. This week we take on Cygnet @ Cygnet which promises to be a very tough encounter
