2017 Round 10 Central v Adelaide

 

SANFL
ROUND 10
BULLDOGS SHOW SOME GOOD SIGNS
By Robert Laidlaw
Central District lost its SANFL clash with the Adelaide Crows AFL reserves team by 36-points, at Elizabeth, but there were some promising signs going forward, although with just two victories from their 10 games, the Dogs look likely to be idle in September.
There was a dominance in the statistics by Central, which had more kicks, handballs, tackles, and even free kicks, but Adelaide was slick and efficient with its possessions, and kicked goals almost at will.
If the Dogs error rate was reduced, they would have won the game on the surface of the statistics, but Adelaide had 19 AFL-listed players, and at times resembled a machine in the way it used the ball, which is to be expected by a side that is chock full of professional footballers.
One positive aspect for Central is that if it can build on its performance, there will be plenty of wins available through the coming weeks, as many players would have gained some confidence from their efforts.
To highlight the Crows efficiency, they kicked six goals without a miss in the first quarter (to Central's 1-2), and in the final stanza nailed another five straight (to the Dogs 4-1).
There were several opportunities for the home side to kick goals in the first term, which proved fruitless, with John Butcher booting the Dogs only six pointer at the 17 minute mark, Adelaide kicking three earlier, and three into time on, to control proceedings the rest of the way.
The second term proved frustrating, as Central scored majors with both its shots on goal leading into time on, to the Crows 4-2, with four consecutive behinds just before half time a wasted effort to get the Dogs back into the game, and they trailed 3-6 to 10-3.
With a return of four further points to start the second half, Central all but kicked itself out of the game (eight consecutive behinds), with some other complete misses adding to the woes.
Just on 18 minutes into the third term, Ben Walter won a 50-50 ball outside the 50m arc, broke away, bounced twice and booted the goal of the game, and when Luke Habel nailed a major into time on, the Bulldogs had won the period but still trailed by 31 points at lemons.
When Jacob Templeton opened the final term with an early goal, there was a sniff of life available, but Adelaide put its collective foot down to boot four consecutive goals in a 10 minute period to put Central to the sword.
To finish the game, ruckmen Darcy Fort and Jack Hannath made their presence felt in the forward 50, the former kicking a goal and the latter two, to reduce the final margin to 36 points, 9-11 to 16-5.
Sam Milne was on fire early, raking up plenty of key possessions in the first half, to signal his intentions to break into the on-ball rotations. Walter continued to play with confidence, Isaya McKenzie returned to the league team with a solid effort, while Marcus Barreau had some good moments in his debut.
While Nick Holman, Chris Jansen and Travis Schiller continued to find plenty of the footy, a special mention to Ryan Llewellyn, who worked hard to quell one of the Crows bigger name players.
This Saturday the Bulldogs host Glenelg, in a game that will highlight how much confidence Central gained from its performance against Adelaide.
