Big win for Under 14 footy team

AFTER a sluggish first half, the New Norfolk Under 14s defeated Lindisfarne by a whopping 106 points at Tynwald Park at the weekend. After the three week break the young Eagles were slow out of the box and missed goals they would normally kick. However, after a half -time rev-up by the coaching staff the team came out all guns blazing to kick five goals in the third quarter and a further seven in the fourth.

None tried harder than Zoe Thurston. Her hard work all over the ground was superb and she kicked two goals in the last quarter to cap of a great day. Another to get amongst the goals was Hayden Bielleman, whose hard running and good use of the footy saw him bag four goals. Josh Raspin’s presence up forward was a real standout, Jordan Eiszele continued on with his good form, while Jacob Picken and Jahrod Locher stood tall around the ground. Brandon Bearman and Jack Evans were in and under all day, kicking a goal each.

The team had 11 goal kickers for the game, which is a great sign of some more big scores ahead. Pocket rocket Josh Whitford-Marriott kicked a great goal on the run from the boundary in the first quarter, very nicely done. Hayden Smith, Charlie Stewart, Jakob Triffitt kicked two goals each and Nathan Wakefield booted one.

Thank you to all who worked in the canteen, it was a job well done The next game is on Sunday against Sandy Bay at Queenborough, starting at 11am.
