Sturt – Glenelg Match Prediction | 24-08-2019

However, by the end of the quarter we were down to 17 players that were fit to take the field. After the half time break, we were down to 22 fit players, that would be tested. Our midfielders were strong around the contest and back 6 were defending well in the 1v1s. The third quarter saw a more direct style of play with deeper entries into our forward 50. These efforts resulted in a 5 goal to nil term and set the game up in our favour.

Very disappointing game after the build up of Freds goal kicking and Marjorie Medal and the prospect of Kerls taking another bunch of cellar dwellers up the ladder. The great Manikato won the William Reid 5 times in succession 1979-83. Reckon Tango Miss would have been too good in the Third Race the 2yo. Schoolboys Barry Norsworthy or Richard Cochrane? The drawn First Semi was as close to heaven as my Eagles got before the amalgamation with the Peckers. Bays never in it and Hart looked disinterested even before the big hit. As this post shows she went on to be a top sprinter/miler winning a Thousand Guineas at Caulfied the next spring and a William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley as a 3yo. Ever thus. Both Dogs stalwarts? Full Forward Peter Stokes hit the post from the top of the square with a set shot. Stuff he coped with every week in the VFL and dont recall any suggestion it was more than a strong contest.

Taking on second placed North Adelaide was always going to be a difficult challenge. The players were able to put these elements into practice and controlled the momentum of the game but with limited of scoreboard pressure. The early morning conditions made for a scrappy game; however, our focus was to be strong in the contest, with pressure on the opposition.

A pity though about Princes and Saints not being able to commandeer Adelaide Oval these days. I too also wondered about this strange bit of league programming. So much to reminisce about here. Love the bit about Stewart Moffat travel and the Random Use of Capitals. And I had forgotten about the chunky bits in Ski yoghurt. Gday Mark. Mate, just brilliant. I was at the game, in fact I saw every grand final from 1964 to 1990.

SANFL Statewide Super Womens Exhibition Series Game 2

North kicked the first 3 goals, to the boys credit they kept working away in the contest to kick 2 late goals in the quarter to go in 1 goal down. The first quarter was a scrappy affair, with North having the better skills under pressure and ability to execute inside their forward 50. We moved the ball from our defensive 50 through the middle, but forward entry execution and pressure was not at the required standard, allowing North to exit easily.

All in all, it was a solid performance and our most consistent game for the season. Luke Edwards, Reid Kuller and Sam Liambis were excellent on ball, while Nick Jones and Tex Dowdell had controlled possessions across half back. Three players made their U18 debut with U16s Brodie Edwards and Nasiah Wanganeen coming up and holding their own, while Patty ODea came in an made an impact up forward with 3 goals.

In 1969, the first semi-final between West Torrens (coached by blow-in John Birt) and West Adelaide (coached by blow-in Murray Weideman) was drawn, requiring a replay the following week and putting back the finals schedule by a week. When Glenelg toppled Westies in the preliminary final (held on VFL Grand Final day), the fast thinking Bays officials took advantage of a National Service loophole and registered Richmonds Royce Hart as one of their own for the Grand Final, a week on from playing in the VFL Tigers flag. Hart was reportedly paid $2000 for this appearance, which was made possible because of the rules around his Adelaide based Nasho in 1969.

I remember the day of the grand final well. Modesty should preclude, but I can distinctly remember kicking 18 goals from centre half back. Great article. Sturt won by about 20 goals, which for years afterwards was something to which I accorded almost supernatural significance. Id thought of going to it but my experience in both 1965 and 1968 when I hadnt seen a thing because of crowd congestion finally caused me to change my mind. Instead I joined with a bunch of mates to play out our own version of the GF on our local rubbish dump. Probably the highlight of my footy career.

Round 2 SANFLW Powerade Breakthrough Player

The game went to the wire and as we are becoming accustomed to, it was until the last seconds to manage to gain a draw although a kinder bounce and we win. The 2nd half was a dour struggle and again we had enough of the ball and enough entries, but missed opportunities to capatilise and North were slick at times moving the quickly off turnover and scoring.

The last 10 minutes saw us go away from the disciplined pressure game we had played for 3 quarters, allowing North Adelaide to kick 3 late goals. The forward line was creating more space and looking more threatening to kick a winnable score. By mid-way through the final quarter, the margin was out to 40 points. As the conditions fined up throughout the second and third quarters, our pressure around the contest continued and our ball use and efficiency lifted.

Its hard to tell whether the Bays-following original owner of this Budget stayed on for the final quarter or just ran out of lead in his or her pencil, but the final score was Sturt 24.15 (159) to Glenelg 13.16 (94), giving the Double Blues their fourth flag on end. This score remains the highest in a SANFL premiership decider and Malcolm Greenslades 9.4 has never been bettered in a Grand Final.

In the second half the game opened up with some more direct football being played and players were capitalising on their opportunities up forward. North were pressing hard, which the defence and midfield were able to withstand and then counter attack. Early in the last we got out to a 2-goal lead, but 2 goals in a minute to North put the pressure back on.

Swish, when this match was on, with Norwood not competing,I would have been fishing, either salmon fishing at Port Norlunga or bream fishing in the Port River.However I had my ear glued to my tranny, hoping for a Sturt victory. I wanted the Blues to go on and eclipse Ports 6 in a row. As you know, that never happened.
