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

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 1 Reserves Report 2011

A team of a mix of young-bloods, new comers and Club stalwarts took to the field at midday. With the mercury holding level in low double figures and the ubiquitous wind ensuring that the game would be as interesting as in past years, spectators had on the winter woollies.
With new Reserves Coach, Brad “Boof” Turner at the helm, and ably supported by Captain Chris “Lloydy”  Harper, the first quarter was fairly scrappy but, with some position changes, the boys started to show some fluidity, with 188-game veteran hard-running Chris Turner kicking the first goal of the game.
Big Colt Brandon “Walshy” Edmondson, in his first game of football, showed tenacity in the ruck and down forward, laying some great tackles.  Being kicked in the face while on the mark changed his outlook for a minute or two but he went on to show that the right attitude can beat experience.  Michael “Beasty” Vanbeest was brilliant on the wing with some excellent movement of the ball and assisting in contests.  Watson and McCullum proved a handful in the centre and club icons Micka Hemming and “Tonguer” Clarke added experience in their respective positions.
Unfortunately, the Hawks were too good in the final quarter, with the locals beating the visitors by five goals at full-time.
 

Round 6 Colts Report

Saturday saw the colts travel to Oatlands to take on the central hawks.
 
After a few hard weeks of playing the benchmark teams the boys were confident on taking on the hawks who have been struggling this year.
 
Kicking into a stiff breeze in the first term we were happy to come of at 3 goals a piece and by half time we were up by around 4 goals.  The third term saw the hawks take the ascendancy and with the breeze they were leading by a solitary point heading into the last.  The boys dug deep and with the aid of the breeze kicked 7 unanswered goals to run out winners by 46 points.
 
Better players for the day included Jake Whittenbury, Kieren Iles, Raedan Smedley, Shaun Frogson, Jordan Watson and Luke Alsford.
Major goal kickers were Jake Whittenbury with 4 and Shaun Frogson with 3.
 
Was pleasing to see that our game-plan is coming together and our forward structure is working.
