Reserves Match Wrap Up
Reserves Match Reports are thanks to Darren Reeves (Reserves Coach)
ROUND 14 MATCH WRAP UP -
Whilst not a positive result on the scoreboard, we did take some positives for effort over all four quarters from the game.
We're still not quite at the level we'd like to be, but having 21 contributors was an improvement from the previous week.
A day where we weren't able to turn 8 scoring shots in the first quater into 5 or 6 goals, instead being 1 goal 7. This would take on the momentum for the rest of the game. It just wasn't to be, but a much better sign.
Again, a number of our younger players continued to be the most prominent.
We have a bye this weekend before facing Sturt in a fortnight's time. We still see a glimpse of a finals spot in our destiny with 4 games still to play.
BEST - Jez McLennan, Aaron Nietschke, Matthew White, Marcus Barreau, Brody Mahoney, Ben Antonie
GOALS - Frazer O'Gorman 2, Malachai Ahmatt-Lovett 1, Ryan Humphries-Carnelly 1, Brody Mahoney 1, Matthew White 1, Ben Nason 1
ROUND 13 MATCH WRAP UP -
Plenty of reflection and strong conversation, followed by an equally strong reaction required, after a less than satisfactory performance on Saturday.
We were well beaten on the scoreboard, but more concerning, well beaten in effort across the board.
It has been a little trend for a few weeks now with it being left to a few to carry the load, while others are happy to pick and choose effort levels.
We hope this is a great lesson to the group both as individuals and collectively that consistency of effort, desire to be playing your role and improving every moment, as well as genuine care, are non negotiables at our footy Club.
Nothing less than this will be excepted.
The great thing in footy is we get a chance to rectify it this Saturday against West Adelaide and keep ourselves in the finals picture.
We will be expecting nothing less then 21 fully committed players to take the field.
BEST - Ben Antonie, Frazer O'Gorman, Jordan O'Brien, Ryan Falkenberg, Ari Rigney, Ben Nason
GOALS - Ryan Falkenberg 1, Ari Rigney 1, Malachai Ahmatt-Lovett 1, Nathan Kennedy 1
ROUND 12 MATCH WRAP UP -
In what has been a theme over the year at Reserves level, a frustrating block of the game in the end proved to be to costly.
At the 10 minute mark of the second quarter, we found ourselves 40 points down, only to fall short by 7 points after drawing level deep into the last quarter.
We had some excellent contributions over the day, but unfortunately we had too many who were not able to play their role for long enough!
With a number of different players coming in over the last 5 to 6 weeks, we will take some good lessons into the bye week, and look to rebound strongly in 2 weeks time.
BEST - Jordan O'Brien, James Watt, Ryley Maitland, Ari Rigney, Matthew White, Ben Antonie
GOALS - Malachai Ahmatt-Lovett 2, Connor Mclean 2, James Watt 1, Nick Lange 1, Matthew White 1, Ryan Humphries-Carnelly 1, Ben Nason 1
ROUND 11 MATCH WRAP UP -
Whist we didn't quiet get over the line in a tough and close encounter, we are again pleased and excited by the efforts of the young players that have come into the side.
We were able to debut three more players who have come up through our Under 18's. All three players having an excellent impact on the game.
In the end, some costly turnovers and decisions at important moments of the game were the difference. Two late scores against us in the final minutes of the game left us with the 7-point loss.
Along with the young players, we had excellent contribution from our senior players that continue to lead by great example.
We get an opportunity to look to improve against South Adelaide this weekend, leading into a bye the following week.
BEST - Aaron Nietschke, Ben Nason, Rhett Montgomerie, Ben Antonie, Wyatt Patterson, Ryan Humphries-Carnelly
GOALS - Ben Nason 3, Jack Hannath 2, Ari Rigney 2, Ryan Falkenberg 1, Malachai Ahmatt-Lovett 1, Aaron Nietschke 1, Jordan O'Brien 1, Ryder Eberhard 1
ROUND 10 MATCH WRAP UP -
While it won't go down as a great game of football, or our best performance it was still a pleasing result after a couple of tough weeks.
With still a number of areas of needing to be improved, there were some really impressive passages of play as well as some excellent performances from a number of players, who continue to play consistent football week after week.
It was also another opportunity to see two more debutants out of our Under 18 system, with both players showing some excellent signs.
We continue to be excited by the underage players that are getting some nice exposure at senior level, and look forward to that continuing over the next part of the season.
We look forward to taking on North Adelaide this coming Sunday.
BEST - Rhett Montgomerie, Jacob Templeton, Wyatt Patterson, Ben Antonie, Malachai Ahmatt-Lovett, Murray Stephenson
GOALS - Ben Nason 4, Malachai Ahmatt-Lovett 3, Jack Hannath 2, Ryder Eberhard 1, Nick Lange 1, Josh Spence 1
ROUND 9 MATCH WRAP UP -
A frustrating night on Friday. We were well beaten by a harder working, more desperate team.
The Eagles were able to constantly put us under pressure around the ball. They worked a lot harder away from the contest and we couldn't find a way to match that, or respond at any point.
After being consistent in our effort for the first 8 games, this was a big wake up call for a number of players. Collectively we need to bring a greater attitude and be prepared to play with greater effort for longer periods. Anything less than that will not be up to standard.
We will look to respond this weekend against Port Adelaide.
BEST - Nick Lange, Bradley Bain, Ben Antonie, Frazer O'Gorman, Jordan Furnell, Jacob Templeton
GOALS - Ryan Humphries-Carnelly 1, Josh Richardson 1, Tyler Harris 1, Nick Lange 1, Ryder Eberhard 1
ROUND 8 MATCH WRAP UP -
A slightly disappointing result in the end, after showing some good fight over the course of the night.
We felt we had enough opportunities to win the game. With some poor kicking for goal and not enough intensity from a defensive perspective, we allowed Norwood to stay in touch and overrun us in the last 15 minutes of the game.
Again, we had some solid contributions from our consistent players. It also allowed more game time for the younger players, who we are impressing with their cotinued development.
We have an opportunity to bounce back this Friday night, against the Eagles at home.
BEST - Jack Hannath, Jacob Templeton, Wyatt Patterson, Josh Richardson, Jordan Furnell, Murray Stephenson
GOALS - Ryan Humphries-Carnelly 2, Jack Hannath 2, Ryder Eberhard 2, Josh Richardson 1, Jordan Furnell 1, Jarrod O'Brien 1
ROUND 7 MATCH WRAP UP -
An important step for the development of our group, to come from behind at three quarter time.
With a number of players out of the game due to injury, to find a way to win against last year's Premiers was a great result.
It was pleasing again to see some more experienced players having a strong impact and putting their names up for selection.
There were also 3 more debutants at this level, having a really solid start and influence on our performance.
While not our best performance, it is a positive result and it continues to build the confidence of the group leading into Norwood this Friday night.
BEST - Josh Rchardson, Jack Hannath, Ryan Llewellyn, Luke Habel, Jacob Templeton, Ben Antonie
GOALS - Nick Lange 2, Jarrod O'Brien 2, Ryan Humphries-Carnelly 1, Frazewr O'Gorman 1, Jacob Templeton 1, Brad Beswick 1, Ryder Eberhard 1, Jake Billing 1
ROUND 6A MATCH WRAP UP -
A really pleasing result on a couple of accounts.
Firstly, as a response to a last quarter fade-out last week, it was important that we found a way to bring a solid effort for four quarters.
Secondly, we were able to see some nice reward and result by playing in the aggressive manner that we are wanting to play, both offensively and defensively.
Lastly, with some injury concerns in our League side, there are some players in strong contention given their recent form.
A lot to like as a collective and a lot to still improve on as we move on to Sturt this week.
BEST - Brendan Dew, Jacob Templeton, Dylan Weaver, Brody Mahoney, Ben Nason, Wyatt Patterson
GOALS - Ben Nason 3, Brendan Dew 2, Ryder Eberhard 2, Ryan Humphries-Carnelly 2, Brad Bain 1, Brody Mahoney 1, Steve Burton 1, Jacob Templeton 1
ROUND 6 MATCH WRAP UP -
A disappointing result and hopefully some lessons learned for a number of players on the weekend.
While we were not completely satisfied with how we had played, we found ourselves leading by 24 points at the three quarter time break. A 5 goal to 3 points final quarter left us with a 3 point loss.
Some great lessons on areas we have been demanding in and around total team first actions, and an ability to find a way when momentum is going against us, will hopefully be of great value moving forward.
The great thing about football is we get an opportunity to improve again this Friday night against North Adelaide at home. Nothing less than 21 committed players for long periods will be excepted this week!
BEST - Ben Nason, Jack Hannath, Dylan Weaver, Ben Antonie, Luke Habel, Jacob Templeton
GOALS - Jack Hannath 2, Chol Anyang 2, Ben Nason 2, Luke Habel 1, Ryan Falkenberg 1, Brenton Watts 1, Jez McLennan 1, Brody Mahoney 1, Josh Richardson 1
ROUND 5 MATCH WRAP UP -
A really pleasing result to come away with a solid win, against the ladder leaders on their home ground.
We were able to play some good football both with and without the ball, and with some of the key team-first characteristics that we are wanting to see, were really evident in the first 3 qtrs.
A slight drop off in our work rate and intensity allowed the game to get a little closer than it should have. But overall, we are pleased with the improvement we're seeing.
We're looking forward to taking on South Adelaide at Noarlunga this Saturday!

GOALS - Jake Billing 5, Ben Nason 2, Sam Milne 2, Brendan Dew 1, Brody Mahoney 1
ROUND 4 - BYE
ROUND 3 MATCH WRAP UP -
Whilst we were not able to produce our best football over the day, we were pleased to be able to keep ourselves in the contest. We managed to find a way to win the game after being behind at 3/4 time.
Overall, we felt we were a little flat and lacked the energy we posessed the previous week. However it was a good learning experience to work our way out of it in the end.
There was a lot to like in some of the consistent performances we've seen in some of our players these first 3 rounds. This could see a few pushing for selection in the League team this week.
BEST - Nick Madden, Nick Gillard, Matthew White, Ben Antonie, Josh Richardson, Ben Nason
GOALS - Ben Nason 3, Ryan Falkenberg 3, Tyler Harris 2, Josh Richardson 1, Brody Mahoney 1
ROUND 2 MATCH WRAP UP -
A really pleasing performance by the Reserves, after a disappointing result in Round 1.
There was a real emphasis on sustained effort for long periods, with a strong belief that other areas would then fall into place.
We felt like we had a genuine team contribution from all. This was evident with a number of players having between 10 and 20 possessions, and also a number of contributors on the scoreboard over the day.
We had 3 players playing their first official game for the Club at Senior Level, and a couple who are still very new. We are excited by what we are seeing and looking forward to continued improvement next week against West Adelaide.

Luke Habel 4, Ben Nason 4, Tyler Harris 3, Ryan Humphries-Carnelly 1, Ryley Maitland 1, Frazer O'Gorman 1, Nick Madden 1, Brody Mahoney 1
ROUND 1 MATCH WRAP UP -
A disappointing first half that saw us second to the ball on many occasions. We were generally outworked across the ground, which left us with a lot of work to do in the second half.
With an improvement in effort after half time, we were able to work our way back into the game, and gave ourselves a strong chance to win late in the game.
Through strong defensive pressure and general workrate, we put together a dominant second half and finished with six more scoring shots. Unfortunately we didn't capitalise and couldn't quite get the result.
Overall, a positive second half with a number of guys playing their first game for the Club, and another talented bunch of young guys still waiting for a chance.
