Round 2 Reports – 2011

ROUND 2 -V- Cygnet at Slab Road

The trip last week to Cygnet allowed the Blues to post a solid win over Cygnet in the Seniors and a disappointing loss in the Reserves.
Post-game beers in the Cygnet clubrooms in amiable surroundings made celebrating the mixed results enjoyable.  We thank Cygnet Football Club for extending their hospitality and we hope to reciprocate in Round 13.  Thanks to Nifty and the team.

The Centenary Ball is on Saturday 9th July at Wrest Point Casino.  To register you interest to attend, please contact the Club on the numbers listed in this record

SENIORS

Another road trip for the Two Blues, this time to Cygnet, saw our senior team take the points in perfect conditions for football at Cygnet Oval.

The first term saw both teams play some exciting end-to-end footy with the Two Blues taking a slender lead into quarter time.

Early dominance in the second quarter was a sign of things to come as the Two Blues extended their lead ay half-time.

With a strong defence, hard-working mid-field and lively forwards, the Two Blues controlled the game after half-time and never looked threatened to record a satisfying Away win.
A strong team performance was the highlight of the day, allowing Marriott to kick five goals and Nick McWilliams three with a host of other important contributors.
 

RESERVES

The Two Blues Reserves travelled to Cygnet in what proved to be a valuable earning experience for the young team.  It was terrific to see a lot of improvement from the previous week, especially the younger players some of whom have clearly signalled their intention they want to work hard and play senior football.  The return of several strong and experienced players combined with some very exciting youngsters will see the Two Blues Reserves mould into a very competitive team in the coming weeks.  The team is well coached by Boof Turner and a solid win is just around the corner.

COLTS

Unfortunately, Lindisfarne failed to get enough interest to field a Colts side last week.
Things are afoot to remedy this situation and, with the bye against Claremont this week, we have some to time to consolidate our plans.

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.

Reserves 2010 Elimination Final Report

 

The first week of the finals was on us and we had to travel to Huonville to take on New Norfolk in a fourth –V- fifth knockout final.

The word was that New Norfolk where eligible to drop half a dozen senior players into their side since their senior’s where not playing, but we went into the game confident that the 22 that we came up with were more than capable of taking on any side in this finals series.

We started the first quarter in the right mindset, we played to our game plan, our intensity and pressure was good and we lead at the first break by two goals.  

Our luck was soon to change as the senior side took Andrew Kennedy due to Tim Bracken’s late unavailability after being attacked by a dog while taking his dog for his Saturday morning walk. Adrian Pennicott then suffered a hamstring injury after playing some good football and then with about 10 second to go in the second quarter Joshua Baliebalvari and myself crashed heads, which resulted in concussion and a hospitalization.

After these series of events, we went stagnant and were unable to find our form back and ended up losing the match by 78 points.

Better players on the day were Ricky Batt who did a fantastic job, still got a lot of possession and showed a lot of leadership.  Mathew Weeding up forward plucked every ball that came his way and was our only major goal kicker.  Mick Grimsey, Chris Russell, Jesse Hamill and Kieren Iles battled hard all day.

In conclusion on the year:  It was a year that promised so much but ended up fizzling out due to the club’s injury list and non-committed players.

A big thank you should go out to all reserves players who seen the year out to the end.  We did have a winning season only losing five roster games and I owe all of you a big thanks.

To my assistant coach Nathan Senior, runner Kenny Weir, stats man Frank Menzie and my various team managers, I thank you all for the un-rewarded work that you all do.

In a week or two I will do a recap on season 2010, so stay tuned.

Stay Frosty!
