Round 2 Vs Huonville 2013

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

Round 5 Seniors Report -V- Cygnet 2012

The Lindisfarne Nu-Jet Two Blues went into their Round 5 clash with the Cygnet Power on the weekend, looking to make it 5 and zippo and build on our promising start to the season. With the SFL rep game the weekend after, the boys were keen to put in a strong performance going into the week off.

With a cold, wet and windy forecast ahead both teams knew it was going to be an old fashioned brand of football that would bring home the chocolates. With Declan Crawford out sick with a nasty case of the runs, Josh ‘Squish’ Hobden came in to play his first senior game of the season. This was a good reward for Josh, who had a super pre season and some solid form in the Reserves. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for Josh’s driving skills – Josh had a bit of Lara bingle on the way to Cygnet, but escaped unharmed and we were glad he eventually made it to the ground in one piece.

For the 5th game in straight the boys ran out after a victory in the Reserves – super work from Menz and the boys.
The first half saw a very even contest in ordinary conditions with Cygnet playing a tough and competitive brand of football. We entered the major break 6 points up, 6.4: 40 to Cygnet 5.4: 34. Midfielders Sam Hodben, Marty Allison and Nick Braslin were the pick of the players during the first half.

After a well deserved rocket from Coach Goodwin the boys ran back out onto the paddock with plenty to prove in the 2nd half. Michael Clarke worked himself into the game with 2 early sausages and George Fitzgibbon was moved up the ground and instantly proved a spark which been missing early in the game. By ¾ time the game was in the bag with the Two Blues leading by 37 points.

The final quarter saw the margin increase to 58 points with Fitzgibbon and Jenkins slotting through goals to make it a 3 pack a piece. The final siren sounded with the Lindisfarne Nu-Jet Two Blues defeating the Cygnet Power 15.8: 98 to 6.4: 40.

Best players were Batt, Fitzgibbon, Allison, S. Hobden, Swan & Braslin
Goal Kickers: Fitzgibbon & Jenkins 3, Swan, Allison, M. Clark & J Hobden 2, Allie 1.

Congratulations and good luck to Gavin Quirk, Mitchell Swan, Matt Phillips and Marty Allison who will be representing the SFL in Ulverstone on the 19th May. Matt has also been selected in the State U/23 squad which is a great effort.

Players/Supporters are also reminded about our next club function. Sat 26th May after our home game against the East Coast Bombers – put this date in your diary!!!
