Under 14s stage footy walkover

IN an extremely one-sided game at Abottsfield Park on Sunday, the New Norfolk Under 14s thrashed Claremont by a whopping 135 points. Right from the first bounce, the Eagles took control kicking five goals in the first quarter. This was followed by three in the second, six in the third and a further six in the final term.

Jordan Eiszele was again at his best, picking up possessions at will in a great display of football. Hayden Bielleman gave plenty of spark all over the ground, his pace being a real standout week in week out. Josh Raspin showed great determination for the full four quarters.

Josh Whitford-Marriott gave plenty of drive into the forward line, with his pinpoint passes. Jakob Triffitt worked tirelessly for the entire game while Brayden Chaplin was again at his best booting four goals. The team had 11 goal kickers, which was great to see. The work ethic of Aaron Thorpe and Charlie Stewart up forward was just terrific as was Nathan Wakefield who booted two nice goals.

The small brigade of Hayden Smith, Jack Evans and Nick Wakefield continue to impress while Jahrod Locher and Jacob Picken stood tall around the ground, kicking one goal each. Goal of the day went to our great backman Josh Challenger, who again found his way through the pack – this time up forward, drilling it straight through the middle.

The Eagles’ next game is under lights at Tynwald Park on Friday night against North Hobart starting at 6.30. This will be a great game as both teams have recorded a win each against each other this season. To add to this, it looks like the two teams will play off against each other in the first week of the finals.
