  • 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.

  • Roos survive final qtr shootout to beat the Coutas

    Last week we welcomed Queenscliff to Alcoa Oval and the boys were eager to get that winning feeling back after suffering a disappointing loss the week before. It was a game that we felt confident in getting a result in as we came close to victory after a poor start to the game down at the bowl. The reserves took a while to get going as a scoreless quarter was far from an ideal start, but that being said it certainly didn’t like that out on the ground. However we kept on fighting an edged ourselves back into the contest with us kicking three goals to two and winniing the quarter by nine points as we went into the long break. Another strong quarter was on display in the third and we also won the quarter four goals to two and all of a sudden it was a 12 point margin heading into the last quarter. Although like the way that most of the reserves games have been so far this season, we have failed to be able to run out games. This was certainly the case this week, but despite that the effort was there all the way until the end as we got over run by 42 points. Ty Norman is fitting nicely back into the footy fold, kicking three goals in his second game back. Then it was the seniors turn to hit the ground and it was all built up to be a big game for the club. The game certainly didn’t disappoint with the game being locked into an arm wrestle. At quarter time the scores were tied, 3.2 apiece, and then the second term was Just as close with us managing to hold the slightest of margins 6.6 to 6.5. it continued to be a tight battle, with plenty of momentum swings and we kept chipping away, and eventually opened up a two goal lead come the last change. Then the last term was a shootout with both teams fighting it out until the siren blew and it was us that managed to hold on by 23 points after winning the term seven goals to five. Blake Grant was back to his brilliant best, kicking a six goals, while Dale Carson chipped in with 3. To sour the win was the injury to Dale Carson, who joins an ever growing casualty list with a wrist injury. We wish him well for his recovery.   Seniors Anglesea: 18.9.117 def Queenscliff 14.10.94 Goals: B. Grant 6, D. Carson 3, T. Leeds 2, N. Baddeley 2, R. Dahlhaus, B. Hunt, J. Onley, O. Mackay, B.

  • Grubbers too strong for Roos

    Last week we set out to Shell Road to take on the grubbers. Without having played each other yet, no one would really know how the game would turn out. The reserves took the field first and it was a very different side and you could almost be mistaken to think that it was a past players day….. with some blasts from the past booting up to help fill the numbers. Despite the margin being just eight points at the opening break,a few more injuries occurred throughout the opening term and the remaining three quarters just got that little bit harder. The home sides skills improved and their fitness stood out and this was the deciding factor in the game as we went goalless for the remaining three terms. Despite that and the fact that we had no bench for the last quarter, our intent and determination was evident right to the final siren. Then it was our seniors turn to hit the ground and unfortunately, like we have seen on some occasions throughout the year, we were not switched on from the start and this proved costly for us as the home side took a commanding 31 point lead at quarter time. With serious work to do, we tried to work our way back into the contest but the home side were determined not to let their hard work slip and instead extended their lead to 57 points at the main break. The third term was a little closer, as we kicked two goals to their three but the game was well and truly over as we headed into three quarter time and we ended up getting belted by 91 points. Not a pretty scoreboard but one we will have to move on quickly from as we take on the Coutas at home.   Seniors Anglesea: 6.5.41  def by Ocean Grove 20.12.142 Goals: T. Clarke 2, R. Williams 2, B.

  • Roos on the hop

    Last week we were at home taking on Drysdale. Last time the sides met, it wasround one when we had a fit list and full of belief and handed the home side a 75 point loss in the senior game. However this time around it’s a different story. Both sides are similar spots on the ladder and we had 11 missing from that day. The day started with the reserves taking the field. It was a pretty bleak half in terms of the scoreboard for the opening half but the pressure and effort was definitely there. Whilst we were goalless at half time we were still ver much in the contest as the wasteful hawks only managed 3.8 for the half. Then we fought our way back into the contest in the third term as we kicked three goals to two and won the quarter by two points. However our lack of fitness came into the equation and the hawks ran the game out to beat us by 42 points. Then it was the seniors turn to hit the field and they were fired up, as the boys were determined to try and make it back to back wins for the first time this year. It was a solid performance in the opening term, however some inaccurate kicking stood in the way from taking the lead into quarter time, instead scores were tied 3.6 to 4.0. We continued our form in the second kicking six goals to four and went into the main break 11 points ahead. It was a pretty even quarter in the third but the hawks managed to claw the margin back by just four points. However we bounced back in the final term and ran the game out kicking three goals to two and taking a 19 point win. The star performance of the afternoon was Dale Carson who continues to dine out on the hawks, kicking 9.2 and just missing his 10 goal haul. Jake “Snake” Nolan had a great game down back, while Bell-Warren was creating plenty of run around the ground.   Well done boys, lets keep the good work going when we take on the grubbers this weekend.   Seniors Anglesea: 15.13.103  def Newcomb 13.6.84  Goals: D.

  • Roos bounce back

    Last week saw us travel out to Barwon Heads, where an undermanned outfit would come up against an unbeaten Barwon Heads outfit that has added some more class in the name of Corey Enright. However, despite that we knew that we would throw everything at the home side and hope that we may be able to record an upset win. The reserves kicked proceedings off and heading up wind made things difficult for us as we only managed the one behind to their seven goals. However we kept fighting and the remaining three quarters  were very different. The second term we managed to boot four goals whilst keeping them goalless and this brought the margin back to an even four goals. Whilst Barwon heads extended their half time lead to 34 points at three quarter time, we still felt like we were very much in the contest. However we were un able to make up any ground as they ran out 43 point winners. Despite the opening term, we actually outscored the home side over the next three quarters. So well done boys to keep fighting the game out and not let the game blow away.   Now it was the seniors turn and the crowd all showed up to see Enright run out onto the field. It was a great start to the game from us as we flew out of the blocks with a three goal to none opening term and led the home side by an even three goals. However a five goal to one second term saw them wrestle the led back and take a 12 point lead into the main break. The third quarter was very close again and the game was balancing on a knifes edge with the margin only four points to the advantage of the home side. The last quarter started out very even and neither side could really gain any ascendency, but then the flood gates opened late in the final quarter and we were unable to stop it as the home side piled on the goals to record a 52 point win. A disappointing result and to sour the result further was the injuries sustained to Hayden Foss and Dan Courtney. Bad luck fellas, let’s bounce back this week when we host the Power.   Reserves Anglesea 9.3.57 Def By 14.16.100 Goals: Venables 4, C.
