Kinglake Memorial Oval, Kinglake Central.
Kinglake quickly put pressure on Yea with 19 inside 50s to Yea’s 10 in the opening quarter, with AFL Yarra Ranges Grapevine predicting that “…the cards might fall Kinglakes’ way today.”
Kinglake took early control of the match kicking the first two goals with the footy in the lakers forward half for most of the first quarter. Kinglake were five goals up early with Yea yet to score.
The lakers had less centre clearances than Yea, 6 to 7, but sill controlled the match at the quarter time break. Kinglake by 19 points as Yea kicked two goals late in the quarter.
At the quarter time huddle Kinglake coach Brad Wilkinson stated “We need to set up a bit differently around the centre clearances.”
“Defensively we’re not setting up well enough around those stoppages.”
Yea coach Mark Beattie told his players at quarter time “We’ve got run in two’s and three’s both ways, that way if we turn it [the footy] over you’re out here jogging…”
The tigers steadied in the second quarter with both the lakers and tigers kicking four goals three. Kinglake had control in the centre with ten centre clearances to just five from the tigers, though Kinglake couldn’t capitalize on them as Yea stepped up its’ defensive pressure. At halftime it was Kinglake by 22.
Kinglake came out after halftime and really put the pressure on Yea with seven centre clearances to just three from Yea with 13 inside 50s from the lakers whilst the tigers only managed six as Kinglake’s accuracy in front of goal improved. At three quarter time Kinglake held a 40 point lead.
The lakers kept up defensive pressure whilst going forward 11 times whilst Yea only managed to get into their forward line three times in the final quarter, with Kinglake winning the match by 74 points as the tigers failed to roar.
Kinglake’s reserves won their second match of the season after defeating Yea. Last time the lakers reserves faced the tigers in Yea, Kinglake managed only two goals for the match. A much improved performance from Kinglake’s reserves, winning by 23 points.
Reserves coach Andrew Young stating after the match “They’ve (Yea) beaten other half alright sides…that shows what we’re really capable of.”
“Make sure everyone gets to training.”
