Four-goal win for juniors

THE New Norfolk Under 14 footballers travelled to Queenborough on Sunday, where they took on and defeated Sandy Bay by 31 points. Both teams were evenly matched throughout the game, but it was the Eagles that got the early scores on the board and by half time they had kicked 4.7 to 0.1. Light rain fell during the first half, but it became heavy in the third and fourth quarters and as a result things evened up somewhat.

The Eagles kicked a further four goals in the second half. Sandy Bay matched them with an equalling four goals, but the damage was done and the red, white and black continued on their winning way. Onballer Jordan Eiszele was best on ground, picking up countless possessions and kicking a goal. Jordan has great composure and gets the job done with no fuss.

Josh Challenger was yet again his ever-reliable self, defending many Sandy Bay attacks. Jakob Triffitt was as usual damaging up forward, kicking three goals and taking his tally for the season to 14. Hayden Bielleman was yet again a stand out – his efforts to run his opponents down and gain possession of the footy was a pleasure to watch.

Jacob Picken and Daniel Browning kept the Lions at bay, teaming up well together throughout the four quarters. Charlie Stewart was again amongst the goals, as was Jahrod Locher, Josh Whitford-Marriott and Brodie Wilton, Josh Berry and Nathan Wakefield ran hard all day and handled the slippery ball very well.

This Sunday the Eagles play Cygnet/Kermandie at Tynwald Park, starting at noon. Photos will be taken before the game, so all players and officials are asked to be there at 10am.
