Round 2 Seniors Match Report -V- Brighton 2012

The Lindisfarne Nu-Jet Two Blues went into their round 2 clash with an unchanged line up from Round 1 and were looking to make it 2 from 2. It was great to be back playing on the home turf of Anzac Park against a strong Brighton outfit.

Again the boys ran out after another great win from Menza’s boys in the ressies. Fantastic position for the club to be in with plenty of depth, we have a number of Reserves players putting pressure on the senior group.

After jumping out of the blocks, the boys went into quarter time with a 7 point lead: 4.2 26 to Brighton 3.1 19.
Half time saw the lads with a lead of 22 points and looking to break the game open 8.7 55 to Brighton 5.3 33. Key midfielders Nick Braslin, Nathan Mills and Michael Clarke 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. Sam Hobden was providing plenty of head aches up forward playing a Stephen Milne type role and with his help, the boys went into 3/4 time with a 44 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 41 point winners and dominating the majority of play in the last quarter. Ruckman Matthew Phillips battled all day in the ruck against a bigger opponent and the ever reliable duo of Jamie Ford and Justin Myers showed plenty of dash and they repelled any attack that went into the back half. Full back Robbie Jackman also played a great game down back and is fitting in the club very nicely.

Lindisfarne 4.2 8.6 14.11 17.16 (118) d Brighton 3.1 5.3 8.3 12.5 (77)
GOALS—Lindisfarne: S. Hobden 4, J. Marriott 3, J. Jenkins 2, N. Mills 2, M. Clark 2, K. Miller 2, G. Fitzgibbon , R. Smith.

Round 2 Reserves Match Report -V- Brighton 2012

On Saturday the reserves took on Brighton in our first home game of the season, in what was a tough hard fought contest.

We expected the game to be a physical encounter and in the first quarter Brighton were first to the ball, won the contested football and got the jump on us. To play our style of football we still need to win the ball and our contested football was no where near were it should have been.

After the quarter time break we started to get some fluency into our game and pegged back the difference to go into the main break with a one point lead.

In the second half we won more of the ball and were able to feed our runners to play more to our strengths and run out with a hard fought 25 point win.

Apart from the first quarter where we put our defenders under immense pressure by not putting enough pressure on our opponents up the ground, we had another even spread of contributors.

The back six where well lead again by Trent Clarke and Scotty Bester. Stuart Clarke played his best game for the club running off half back. Chris ‘Lloydy’ Harper applied the CLAMP!

Up forward Jack Anning gave us some spark across the half forward line when we became stagnate going forward in this area and Brodie Phillips finished with three goals for the Day.

Josh ‘Yonna’ McWilliams and Michael VanBeest worked hard in the ruck as did Brenton ‘Pup’ Allie when the ball was on the ground. Both wingers Simon McCarthy and Jimmie Mitchell got lots of football due to their run.

Next week we travell to Kempton to take on the Central Hawks.

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 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.
