MARK'S MATCH REVIEW

Weekly Match Reports

April 16, 2019 - MATCH REPORT - GLENELG VS SOUTH ADELAIDE
It’s hard to know what to feel after a draw - on one hand you think, gee, we’re probably lucky to get that close and on the other hand you think we could’ve won it. But we can’t look at the “what if’s”, we have to take it for what it is and we bank 1 point and move on.
READ MORE +
For the majority of the game we were outplayed and although the stats and our KPI’s look good, there were certain fundamental areas of the game where South were too good.

Their key forwards gave us some headaches, their backs defended well and then ran hard forward in attack. But we hung in, adjusted a few things structurally and showed our fitness is really strong and fought it out right to the 100th minute. The last quarter was a great example of our capability if we combine work rate and game plan and gives us confidence as a group.

Jesse white was superb in the ruck and voted by his peers as our best.

Congratulations to Brad Crabb on reaching 200 games and all the best for the remainder of the season. This Friday we take on Sturt at ACH Group stadium and need all our members and supporters to ride us home again.

April 08, 2019 - MATCH REPORT: GLENELG VS ADELAIDE
Everyone at the club was looking forward to our 1st home game of 2019, and facing Adelaide with 18 AFL listed players was always going to be a tough task.
READ MORE +

In what was a quick 1st quarter we managed to score without playing great footy in a tough physical start to the game. The 2nd produced some our better footy even though the Crows scored and probably won the quarter. I still felt we were applying pressure and hitting in at the contest and scrounged a couple of goals to stay in front.

The stoppages were a concern at half time and we tried some things to adjust and rectify the problem. We had some immediate affect in the centre bounces and managed to defend stoppages well even though we were really outsized and out-classed at ball ups.

The second half produced 11 goals and some of our most efficient ball use on the back of great team shape and defence. Liam McBean got the lick of the ice cream with 9 goals but without Jesse white shouldering the ruck we wouldn’t have been able to keep him deep. He was well supported by Scott Reynolds and Hosie who cleared out at the right times. I also thought our backs were solid and worked well as a group to repel attacks

Overall, a strong willed effort against a good Crows outfit 

This week we look forward to hunting the league leaders South Adelaide at home 

GLENELG 18.7 (115) def. ADELAIDE 9.8 (62)

GOALS: McBean 9, Reynolds 3, Hosie 2, Gregson, Koster, Scott, White

April 02, 2019 - MATCH REPORT: ROUND 1 VS NORWOOD
We were primed for a tough game against last years runners up who we knew would be seething on last years grand final.
READ MORE +

We started well and set the tone for the game with hard run, physical contests and some effective ball use.
There were some areas of our game that were really strong and evidence of the work through pre-season, and others that were down.
Our centre bounce work wasn’t to the level we needed, and even after working hard on it during the week, that area let us down.

The stats were in Norwood’s favour in several areas but we have found a different way to play if needed, and our scoring efficiency meant we needed less of the ball to score.
Only a fool would look solely at stats as indicators to win (as Melbourne found out last week), and so we played with plan B and lead at every change.

The last quarter was always going to be a huge challenge, kicking against a breeze and needing to play with an attacking mindset and not try to defend the game.
We were overrun by a very good team, who executed some set plays better than we could, and earnt their win.

The pleasing aspect was that we fought to the end and never gave up – and had some chances late to score but couldn’t convert.
It must become part of our DNA now to play hard right to the end, every game, no matter what the stats or conditions are saying.

Proud of the effect, need to keep working on execution
