MARK'S MATCH REVIEW - LEAGUE
Goals: J Scott 3, M Motlop, J Koster, T Milera, L Hosie, L Reynolds
We knew exactly what to expect from the Eagles and we planned to use components of our game plan to disprupt their style but overall we weren’t able to execute them well enough for long enough.
The 1st half was fairly even, both statistically and with opportunities in front of goal, but the late goal they scored on the half time siren really hurt.
It turned a 16 point deficit into 22, which is not unsurmountable, but should’ve been stopped.
From our point of view, we worked well in and around the stoppages and kept to our structures fairly well to be even in the stoppage game, and matched them in the turnover game. The disappointing factor at the main break was easily they scored from players getting out the back of the contest, and how hard we made it for ourselves by trying to score from the boundary when a team-mate inside was a better choice.
The 2nd half was one way traffic really – their midfield completely outran us and outworked us and although we fought through some adversity with illness and losing Jesse White, we didn’t work hard enough for long enough against a team that plays the same tempo from minute 1 to minute 120.
We make no excuses – the game gives us strong feedback on the gap between us and the better teams.
We put our heads down and get to work and prepare for Centrals in 6 days.
RELL'S WRAP UP - RESERVES
Goals: N Amato 4, D Wanganeen 2, B Woolard, C Buchanan, D Robinson, T Cox, S Davis, S Kerrish, B Close
Our key focus against the Eagles Round 4 was team defence. We wanted to bounce off that and create offensive opportunities as a result of playing as a strong defensive unit.
It was a game of lead changes from both sides with blocks of goals being kicked by both sides. At times when we had the ball we looked dangerous and like a well drilled side and then at other times we lacked composure with the footy and turned it over with minimal resistance allowing the Eagles to score numerous times. Going into the last quarter 11 points behind we wanted to grind the game out.
It was pleasing to finish off strong with a 5 goal last quarter where for the majority we controlled the ball and moved it the way we want to. Those goals in the 4th quarter set us up to sneak home by 2 points. We come up against Centrals this week in what presents as another challenge that we look forward to.
