Reserves Match Wrap Up
Reserves Match Reports are thanks to Darren Reeves (Reserves Coach)
ROUND 6A MATCH WRAP UP -
A really pleasing result on a couple of accounts.
Firstly, as a response to a last quarter fade-out last week, it was important that we found a way to bring a solid effort for four quarters.
Secondly, we were able to see some nice reward and result by playing in the aggressive manner that we are wanting to play, both offensively and defensively.
Lastly, with some injury concerns in our League side, there are some players in strong contention given their recent form.
A lot to like as a collective and a lot to still improve on as we move on to Sturt this week.
BEST - Brendan Dew, Jacob Templeton, Dylan Weaver, Brody Mahoney, Ben Nason, Wyatt Patterson
GOALS - Ben Nason 3, Brendan Dew 2, Ryder Eberhard 2, Ryan Humphries-Carnelly 2, Brad Bain 1, Brody Mahoney 1, Steve Burton 1, Jacob Templeton 1
ROUND 6 MATCH WRAP UP -
A disappointing result and hopefully some lessons learned for a number of players on the weekend.
While we were not completely satisfied with how we had played, we found ourselves leading by 24 points at the three quarter time break. A 5 goal to 3 points final quarter left us with a 3 point loss.
Some great lessons on areas we have been demanding in and around total team first actions, and an ability to find a way when momentum is going against us, will hopefully be of great value moving forward.
The great thing about football is we get an opportunity to improve again this Friday night against North Adelaide at home. Nothing less than 21 committed players for long periods will be excepted this week!
BEST - Ben Nason, Jack Hannath, Dylan Weaver, Ben Antonie, Luke Habel, Jacob Templeton
GOALS - Jack Hannath 2, Chol Anyang 2, Ben Nason 2, Luke Habel 1, Ryan Falkenberg 1, Brenton Watts 1, Jez McLennan 1, Brody Mahoney 1, Josh Richardson 1
ROUND 5 MATCH WRAP UP -
A really pleasing result to come away with a solid win, against the ladder leaders on their home ground.
We were able to play some good football both with and without the ball, and with some of the key team-first characteristics that we are wanting to see, were really evident in the first 3 qtrs.
A slight drop off in our work rate and intensity allowed the game to get a little closer than it should have. But overall, we are pleased with the improvement we're seeing.
We're looking forward to taking on South Adelaide at Noarlunga this Saturday!
BEST - Ryan Llewellyn, Dylan Weaver, Jake Billing, Josh Richardson, Brendan Dew, Murray Stephenson
GOALS - Jake Billing 5, Ben Nason 2, Sam Milne 2, Brendan Dew 1, Brody Mahoney 1
ROUND 4 - BYE
ROUND 3 MATCH WRAP UP -
Whilst we were not able to produce our best football over the day, we were pleased to be able to keep ourselves in the contest. We managed to find a way to win the game after being behind at 3/4 time.
Overall, we felt we were a little flat and lacked the energy we posessed the previous week. However it was a good learning experience to work our way out of it in the end.
There was a lot to like in some of the consistent performances we've seen in some of our players these first 3 rounds. This could see a few pushing for selection in the League team this week.
BEST - Nick Madden, Nick Gillard, Matthew White, Ben Antonie, Josh Richardson, Ben Nason
GOALS - Ben Nason 3, Ryan Falkenberg 3, Tyler Harris 2, Josh Richardson 1, Brody Mahoney 1
ROUND 2 MATCH WRAP UP -
A really pleasing performance by the Reserves, after a disappointing result in Round 1.
There was a real emphasis on sustained effort for long periods, with a strong belief that other areas would then fall into place.
We felt like we had a genuine team contribution from all. This was evident with a number of players having between 10 and 20 possessions, and also a number of contributors on the scoreboard over the day.
We had 3 players playing their first official game for the Club at Senior Level, and a couple who are still very new. We are excited by what we are seeing and looking forward to continued improvement next week against West Adelaide.

ROUND 1 MATCH WRAP UP -
A disappointing first half that saw us second to the ball on many occasions. We were generally outworked across the ground, which left us with a lot of work to do in the second half.
With an improvement in effort after half time, we were able to work our way back into the game, and gave ourselves a strong chance to win late in the game.
Through strong defensive pressure and general workrate, we put together a dominant second half and finished with six more scoring shots. Unfortunately we didn't capitalise and couldn't quite get the result.
Overall, a positive second half with a number of guys playing their first game for the Club, and another talented bunch of young guys still waiting for a chance.
