  • Roos bounce back against the Demons

    When you start out playing football as a junior, most of the time your happy that you are out on the field, with your mates, playing a game of football and having fun. After the game you share all the moments from the game with your mates and family and have a laugh. These are the memories that you will treasure for the rest of your career and reflect on memories from your earliest years. The weekend, in the reserves, brought back memories to what many can sit back and reflect on as a kid. Cold, Windy, and a game played in majority in one half of the ground. Adding to the already tough conditions, playing the game with 17 men from the opening bounce. It was tough never the less and it certainly showed on the scoreboard but credit to the boys who fought very hard to limit the damage on the scoreboard. After being held scoreless heading into the gale in the opening quarter, we managed to hit the scoreboard in the second, kicking just two behinds, with the home side taking a 49 point lead into the main break. The effort continued in the second half and we did manage to kick a major and also keep the margin under triple figures….. just. It was a big effort from the boys who fought hard all day, some carrying injuries, to reduce the game from being a complete blow out. Then It was the seniors turn to hit the field. Conditions were much the same, except being the senior side, they had a 22 men. It was a great start from the boys, kicking seven goals to three in the opening term to take a 27 point lead into quarter time. We continued on from our good start, adding a further four goals to our tally to their one, taking our lead to 41 points at the main break. The home side fought back in the third and won the quarter three goals to one and reduced the margin to just 30 points. However that was as close as it got with the troops rallying to kick away and run out 51 points. A good win from the lads and nice to get back on the winners list. Blake Grant was the pick of the forwards creating havoc for the home sides defenders, kicking five majors. Seniors Anglesea: 16.10.106 def  Portarlington  8.7.55 Goals: B. Grant 5, S. Leeds 3, B.

  • Roos let one go begging

    Last weekend was the E.J Whitten rivalry round and we were up against our old foes Torquay. It was a big day for the club with the club holding its Past Players day. The reserves took the field first and they really dug in and took it up to the top side. However we managed to keep the opposition to just five goals and despite kicking one ourselves, we fought hard and trailed by 32 at the opening break. Then we put in another good quarter and kept them to just three goals whilst kicking two ourselves as we trailed by 43 at the main break. Despite our best efforts the margin kept on growing and at three quarter time we trailed by 73 points. We managed to finish off strong and keep the margin to double figures rather than triple…. Just and it’s a credit to the playing group for fighting the game out to the end. Then it was the seniors turn and it was a very tight and low scoring opening term and neither side could break the deadlock as we trailed at the main break by just nine points. Then a five goal to three second term saw the contest stay pretty even but ready to break open at any stage but we managed to hold a slender four point lead at the main break. Although it was only half the game and despite the good half, it means little if you cant replicate it in the second. In our case that was the case and the opposition made us pay kicking five goals to two and took a healthy 22 point lead into the last change. However the tigers went on a rampage in the last kicking seven goals to none and we ran the game out 66 point losers. A disappointing result but we have to draw on the positives and learn from it as we look ahead to Geelong Amateur this week.   Seniors Anglesea: 8.6.54 def by Torquay 17.18.120 Goals: B. Grant 2, D.

  • Roos win in a thriller

    Last round was a Sunday game against Modewarre, and the boys were fired up and wanting to take some points away from the home side. The reserves set the day off and like most of the year was a hard battle with limited numbers to start on the bench. However we never gave up. Danny Midolo added himself to the ever growing list on injuries as he did his collarbone. It became a long day for the boys who went four quarters goalless. It was far from ideal, but good to see the endeavour was still evident during this hard season. Then it was the seniors turn to hit the field and they were out to get revenge for our eater Saturday clash where we let the game slip out of our hands. Heading up hill in the opening term, it was an entertaining term, but the home side held the early advantage, taking a six point lead into quarter time. Then a blistering five goal to one second term saw the roos bound away to a very handy 17 point lead at the main break. The third quarter was very even as the home side tried to swing the momentum back in their favour however we were determined not to let that lead and momentum slip. Despite losing the quarter by seven points we still held a ten point lead heading into the final term. The Final quarter was a thriller as the home side kicked three consecutive behinds to bring the margin back to just seven to start the term, but then we responded kicking the next three behinds, before Sam Leeds kicked the match winning goal as we ran out 16 point victors. The scenes after the game was electric from the senior group. The belief and determination from the boys, regardless of who is in and or out of the side is simply great. Well done boys.   Seniors Anglesea: 12.7.79 def Modewarre 9.9.63   Goals: B. Grant 4, S. Leeds 3, N. Baddeley 2, B. Hunt 2, O. MacKay Best: R. Williams, D. Bell-Warren, K. Pickett, S. Leeds, J.
