WOMEN'S MATCH REPORTS

Weekly Match Reports with Senior Coach - Jason Fairall

 

March 18, 2019 - ROUND 4 GLENELG VS WEST ADELAIDE
Unfortunately we just couldn’t keep the momentum going after the weekend off. Despite the coaches being fearful of this and trying to instill a high level of sharpness within the team, we started the game slow and struggled to get our game going.

Glenelg 0.3-3 defeated by West Adelaide 2.1-13

Best: Lucy Armitage, Caitlin Gould, Charlotte Dawe, Lucy Earl, Sheridan Howell

Whilst we could easily make excuses for our relatively young and inexperienced playing group, that would be highly disrespectful to our opponents, who showed a great level of defensive discipline to shut the game down. It was a real grind, with over 130 tackles for the game. 

All that said, we did challenge the playing group at half time to respond to the challenge that was thrown down to us. It was pleasing to see the group respond well in all the key stats thereafter except the most important one – the scoreboard.

On a real positive note, we have learnt a lot more about ourselves in this one loss than we did in the three wins previous to this. The hurt among the playing group was there for all to see in the change rooms after the game. Last season there may well have been a level of satisfaction with a small loss like this. This season there is a high level of disappointment and hurt, which suggests we have improved significantly, raising our standards and expectations accordingly. 

Lucy Armitage continued her great form, once again showing her toughness around the ground with 8 tackles and 8 contested possessions. Caitlin Gould also continued her rich vein of form, being our highest possession winner along with 6 Forward 50 Entries. 

The opportunity to make amends this week is something we are eager for. We can’t wait for Saturday’s game against Sturt 11:30am at Norwood.

March 04, 2019 - ROUND 3: GLENELG VS NORTH ADELAIDE
On what was a scorcher of an evening, we met North Adelaide on Friday at City Mazda Stadium. Without downplaying our first two opponents, we knew this was our first big test against a seasoned opponent in North Adelaide. Whilst we were seriously challenged, especially across the first three quarters, it was pleasing to pass this test.

We made some history for ourselves in the process, as it was the first time ever that the Glenelg Women have defeated North Adelaide and it was the first time we have ever won three games in a row. 

The Roosters got off to a great start with a goal in the first minute of the game. We responded soon after with consecutive goals to Sam Franson and Madi Freeman. Fortunately we did hit the scoreboard early as poor discipline crept into our game resulting in some costly frees with North getting some scoreboard momentum as a result. Surprisingly we finished the first quarter up by a goal.

North kicked a goal within the first two minutes of the second quarter but one of our junior young guns, Maddi Freeman, kicked a great goal out of a pack in congestion. Unfortunately, another costly free kick at the end of the quarter enabled North to level the scores at half time.

The third quarter went along the same script of the first two quarters. North kicked an early goal to give them 7 point lead, however the game took a ‘dramatic turn’ from this moment forward. Ellen Fauser took a strong mark and converted, which again levelled the scores, the game was all tied up at the three quarter time break.

The game was clearly in the balance. Both teams were battling the oppressive heat and the fast pace of the game. We asked our players to tighten up some areas that had let us down for large parts of the game. To the player’s credit, they did exactly what we asked of them. As a result, we took total control of the game in the final quarter. A set shot from Bec Steer put us in front, followed by the sealing goal from Hannah Crump, which was the highlight of the game given it had a little had extra meaning for her personally.

The ‘dramatic turn’? North Adelaide have been one of the highest scoring teams in the SANFLW, so we take a lot of confidence from keeping them scoreless for nearly two quarters.

As we head into the weekend off, there appears to a real determined feeling throughout the group, which is driven by our leaders. It’s acknowledged there is still a lot of work to do before we are where we want to be, however we are taking steps forward each and every week. There are some tough challenges ahead of us in the coming weeks, starting with our next opponent, a rejuvenated West Adelaide, 7:45pm at City Mazda Stadium on Friday 15th March.

Glenelg 7.6-48 defeated North Adelaide 5.3-33

Best: Madisyn Freeman, Ellie Kellock, Lucy Bellinger, Caitlin Gould, Cass Hartley, Charlie Dawe

Goals: Madi Freeman (2), Hannah Crump (1), Tamsyn Morriss (1), Ellen Fauser (1), Sam Franson (1)

February 25, 2019 - ROUND 2: GLENELG VS CENTRAL DISTRICT
We made the long journey to Elizabeth on Friday night to take on the other new addition to the competition, Central District. We had a feeling it would be a tough encounter, especially given this was the Dogs first ever home game in SANFLW.

As we expected, Centrals were hard at it from the very first bounce, applying lots of pressure inside the contest. Both Ellie Kellock and Lucy Armitage started strong, putting their bodies on the line and displaying a high level of toughness and courage that has become their trademark. As the quarter progressed, we were starting to get first hands on the ball and get our game going, but struggled to put this on the scoreboard. We lead by a goal at the break thanks to Ellen Fauser converting in the dying seconds of the first quarter. 


The second quarter started the same as the first. It was a tough and tight contest with our goals coming late in the quarter. After the Dogs kicked the first goal early, we saw Olivia Walker-Obushak kick a clever goal from tight in the pocket and a set shot from Bec Steer saw our lead extend to just over 2 goals at the half. Caitlin Gould was a stand out, not just for her work in the ruck, but she was starting to impact the game around the ground.   


We had a lot more control in the third quarter, but again struggled to make the most of this on the scoreboard, with only 1 Hannah Crump goal to show for it. Ellen Fauser was positively impacting the game, troubling her opponents with her ability to contest above her head and her Tiger like agility when the ball was on the ground. 
The Dogs unrelenting pressure for four quarters was superb, having registered nearly 100 tackles for the game. They kicked the first two goals in the fourth quarter to get within 11 points, but a crafty goal to Sam Franson late in the quarter sealed a solid 17 point win. 


Two wins in a row is a first ever for our women’s team. Whilst we are under no illusion that we still have a long way to go to bridge the gap between us and the top teams, the last two weeks provides some reward and validation for our playing group, who have worked extremely hard to improve in the off season and they continue to move forward in the season proper.

Glenelg 5.7-37 defeated Central District 3.2-20

Best: Ellen Fauser, Ellie Kellock, Caitlin Gould, Lucy Armitage, Bonnie Wells, Brooke Trevena 
Goals: Fauser (1), Walker-Obushak (1), Steer (1), Crump (1), Franson (1)
