Trial Game 2 - Results, Central defeat North Adelaide

Central District League side made it 2 from 2 this pre-season with a strong 40 point win over North Adelaide on Saturday.

Playing with an extended bench the Bulldogs made headway early in the match off the back of some individual brilliance and youthful enthusiasm.

The Schiller Brothers were busy early, new recruit Jesse Kemp was showing some strong marking prowess as was Goodrem. All of Centrals young players were looking "lively" as both Edmead and Habel kicked great goals. Bryce Retzlaff started to get his hands on the pill and Murray Stephenson was also looking solid as a rock down back.

The Roosters came back hard and led through the middle period of the match with big Darren Shillabeer proving to be a handful for the Dogs, he had 5 goals at half time for the Roosters.

The Dogs kept fighting and although at times there were skill errors (being a trial game) all in all it was a great contest and a good standard of match for mid-late March.

Big man Connor McLean (who was part of SA's Under 18 Championship side last season) was making a contest and getting amongst everything up forward, while Chris Jansen in his second game in red, white and blue showed he will be a valuable pick up in 2015. Jacob Gillbee came onto the ground after half time and showed his class, while McLean finished with 4 goals after dueling for the most part with North Big Man Todd Miles.
