GOALS

North Launceston: J. Foon, D. Roozendaal, E. Petterwood, J. Avent, A. Cox-Goodyer, T. Whitford

Report: Burnie made use of kicking with a good breeze in the first quarter, booting 5.5 to 0.1 to set the tone early in this Qualifying Final. They then kicked 4 goals against the breeze in the 2nd quarter to 3, which proved decisive in the context of the game. Harry & Nick Walters were dominant early and continued to provide solid defensive pressure, with Harry getting on the scoreboard to really lay the foundations for a Burnie victory. Kyle Harman was also fantastic for Burnie, proving a huge headache, booting 3 goals and making use of the opportunities he created. To North’s credit, they fought back in the 2nd half, lead by Jay Foon and Daniel Roozendaal, getting to within 2 kicks of the lead, with the ever reliable Ethan Petterwood missing a kickable snap for goal in the middle of the 4th, one of the many chances the Bombers had to steal the game away from Burnie. The Dockers never gave up and held on for the win.

 

2015 Elimination Final: LAUDERDALE v DEVONPORT

Sat, 29th August – 2:00pm at Blundstone Arena

Lauderdale                  13.8.86

GOALS
Lauderdale: B. Halton 3, N. Dodge 3, R. McManus 2, M. Cassidy, J. Dunham, T. Boscott, K. Waller, B. Walsh

Lauderdale: E. Stanley, J. Siggins, W. Tate Turvey, A. Duggan, I. Franks, B. Walsh
Devonport: B. Symmons, S. McCrossen, P. Crowden, N. Rataj, S. Douglas, S. Hess

Report: Another contest where the winner held the opposition goalless in the first quarter, this time with Lauderdale putting the clamps on the Magpies, leading at the first break 3.2 to 0.0. The Bombers defensive pressure and structure was fantastic during the whole match, restricting Devonport to 7 goals for game. Bryce Walsh was best on ground, finding some much needed form and consistency. Backmen Siggins, Adam Duggan and Edward Stanley were also fantastic in making it hard for Devonport to pose a threat on the scoreboard. For the Magpies, they certainly never stopped trying, with Nathan Rataj and Brad Symmons doing their best to get into them into the game. They’ll certainly be better for it after tasting finals again for the first time since 2010 and will be a tough proposition come this time in 2016.
