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.

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 12 Reserves Report

On Saturday we took on Triabunna at Anzac Park.  We were aware that we needed a big win to give ourselves a chance of moving up the ladder.  This game also marked the 200th game for club stalwart Adrian ‘AJ’ Pennicott.

Our first quarter gave us the start we needed as we moved the ball quickly and accurately to our forwards.  The next two quarters where good quarters but where pedestrian in the fact that we just were going through the motions and then we finished off the game with another good quarter that gave us a 200 point victory.

Adrian Pennicott: 200 Games

For the majority of the game our tackling pressure was ok and our ability to run and link up through the lines was good but we fumbled the ball quiet a lot when the conditions were good for ball handling.

Senior coach Justin Rainbird played at full forward and kicked five goals as well as giving plenty of goal assists.  The team was rotated a lot and regular back men Mick Hemming and Adrian Pennicott performed well up forward.

Senior players coming back from injuries in Aaron Hilder and Luke Goodsell both made valuable contributions to the team. Aaron picked up numerous possessions playing in the center and Luke took a lot a valuable mark playing at either end of the ground.

In what was a good team effort, others that played well were the ruckmen Josh McWilliams and Chris Russell as well as on-baller Matt Stone.

Next week we travel to the large expanse of Boyer oval to take on New Norfolk.
