U12's

.

For the second time this year the Tigers U12's travelled to Alex Hills to take on the team at the  top of the ladder after round 1.

.
This week the coaching staff again reinforced to the boys the importance of positioning on the field and to also remain focussed on remaining in the play and that even though you may not have the ball near you much at all in a game where you posistion yourself in relation to your opponent can be very important when the ball does actually come into your area. This is especially so in the backline and to all our backlines credit they posistioned themselves perfectly to stop most of the forward entries from Alex Hills.

.
When we were on the ground during our warm up we noticed the strong breeze favouring one end and so before the game started we reminded our boys that if we kicked with the breeze to kick long and if we were against it to make a contest at every opportunity and use players running past to move the football rather than kick long.
The first quarter saw us kicking against the breeze but to eveyones credit we all were switched on to play from the first bounce today and for most of the quarter we controlled both the tempo of the game and the possesion enabling us to play most of the quarter in our half of the ground and outscore the opposition 5 scoring shots to 3.

.
The boys came in at quarter time very enthusiastic, without being to over confident, and with very good reason because the game was being played on our terms because of their hard work all over the ground. At quarter time we knew that kicking with the breeze in the second quarter was an opportunity to kick the ball long and give our forwards a chance to outplay their opponents and put more scoreboard pressure on Alex Hills. We asked our players to perform very specific jobs and every player asked to do a specific job responded in the way we hoped. This was best illustrated by Bayden Hurst who I asked to place himself in and around the goalsquare and move his opponent around and get in a posistion to kick a goal. To Bayden's credit he followed instructions to the letter and was rewarded with his first goal of the year ! Hopefully that brings the confidence to Bayden to continue to do his best and aim for another goal next week as his teammates and the coaching staff have the utmost confidence in him. Thanks to some fantastic ball movement and posistioning the boys came in at half time having had 8 scoring shots for the half and keeping the opposition to 1 point for the quarter.

.
Half time was the chance to get the boys in and congratulate them on their first half and to continue it in the second. The instuction at half time was to again limit the opposition to time with the ball and not to allow them to create space and have the chance to use the breeze to get the ball into their forward line. We asked the players to do this by creating a contest at every opportunity and back each other to win the footy and get it going our way. Not only did the boys again have 5 scoring shots against the breeze but due to some fantastic work stopped Alex Hills from scoring at all with the breeze.

.
With the game under control and going our way at three quarter time we asked the boys for a big last quarter and to not relax and think the game was over and give Alex Hills the chance to outplay us. Kicking with the breeze our fitness and skill saw us move the footy perhaps the best we have all year, and with Connor Bloss, Ryan O'shea, Declan Watson, Josh Patching and Lachlan Baynes everywhere in the quarter we continued to control possesion resulting in an 11 scoring shot to 2 last quarter. For the second week in a row we had scored 11 goals for the game which is a fantastic effort from all the boys.


I have already mentioned some players and this was very much a team effort, but to Dan Maher who followed our ruck instuctions to the letter, Braidyn Field who had his best game by a mile, Shaun Baker and, for the second week in a row, Willy Mcdonald, and Brodie Mizzi who controlled both their opponent and the backline, and Jade Emblow and Billy Bryant who moved around the forward line again this week presenting and giving our players someone to kick to, your games all were instumental in our win.

.
The boys play a team game and it takes everyone in the team to do their part, no matter how small, to achieve what we want. On today's performance the boys, as a team, have set themselves a standard to maintain throughout each game from here on in, but it will only be possible if we maintain our support of each other as a team, and that is all the way through from the coaching staff to players and parents. This is why the boys were reminded at the end of the game that coming to the interchange bench is not a punishment like it used to be in days gone, rather it is a chance for another member of the team to go out and do their bit to help us get to where we want to go. Hopefully everbody is understanding of that and accepts it.

.
Once again thank you to the parents for making the trek south and helping us out on the day. Hopefully the way you see your boys are playing at the moment is reward enough for all the travelling you will do this year.

.
For the second week in a row the Tigers U12's sing the song.

See you all at training

U14's

The Redcliffe Tigers under 14's travelled to Coorparoo in what was expected to be a very tough assignment.

Coorparoo struggled to get a full team which meant we were forced to play 16 a side and rotate from the bench as much as possible. This can at times be a very difficult thing to do as it does disrupt the side and the ability to settle into a position properly. However this is how the game is played at times and players have to make the most of any opportunity they get and force the coaches into giving them more game time.

The team once again showed that they are a more than capable side when working hard and moving the ball in the manner they have been taught. The onballers gave us the chance to apply scoreboard pressure and when moving
the ball quickly and allowing Liam and Haydos to stand strong and mark and kick truly they did so. Our small brigade in Martin, Dickfos, Furness and Rayner were creating plenty of headaches for Coorparoo it appeared most of the team had turned up to work hard and play the game. Stand in Skipper Jake Villot was given the job of the year to tag their quality captain and running machine in Patrick Crosling and restrict his involvement. What a fantastic job he did all day. Our Backline once again lead by Tylor Cester, were able to apply pressure and limit the accuracy of their shots at goal.It was pleasing to see Zac Crispe work his way into the game and show he is a more than capable recruit and we expect even more things from him in the near future as we do from Connor and Sandsy.

It appeared that the game would have to be played to the very end before we had a winner.

Even though we had worked very hard and deserved our ¾ time 3 goal lead it proved not to be enough as Coorparoo slammed home 4 unanswered goals in the last quarter to prove that ¾ of great committed football is not enough and
the game is played over 4 quarters.

Needless to say the disappointment was there to see and experience and the players hopefully learnt from it.

We did have some players who did play out the four quarters and some who thought they had done enough at ¾ time. Well done to Jake Villot, Jacko, Liam, Rusty, Skippy and Tyles who earnt best player honors and did play 4 quarters.

Back to the drawing board but it appears we have set a bench mark and that will be our goal. There are some very positive things to come out of this game and expectations can now be aimed a little higher than some may not have thought. We just have to do the work and we will.

.
Thanks again to all of the support and volunteers who make it happen.

U16's

Well, what a fitting finale to our game, to win with only minutes remaining. A Cantlin goal, mind you, his fifth for the day, just about sums up our TEAM spirit and values, our never give in attitude and of course the significance of what this weekend is all about.

 

The boys were addressed at the pre-game talk, of the importance that this weekend represents not only for sporting endeavours, but why we should take note and pay our respects for those who have come before us, and for those who have fallen for us, as they have given to us this wonderful opportunity to be free to enjoy our pursuits, free to enjoy spending time with our family and friends, free to live and play in a land far removed from the turmoil that they endured. So today was about saying ‘Thank-you”, and in a small, but significant way about claiming our very own Anzac Day memories.

 

The game was played in true Anzac spirit with both teams very evenly matched through-out the day, Strathpine to their credit were most probably deserving to win the match, as they harassed, pressured, ran, and used the ball far superior than what we were doing. To the credit of our boys who were under enormous and mounting pressure to get back on track, (and that was just from the coaching panel) they continued to show at times the fighting qualities of a TEAM that is slowly building toward something, what that something is remains to be seen, but that just left a glimmer of hope that things could turn and go our way. With some positive words of encouragement at three quarter time and with the continued drive from half-back through Spooner and Wilko, the on ball brigade lifted another notch to win more centre clearances, the forwards worked harder to keep the ball locked in and we were able to get that vital goal with only seconds remaining.

 

Well done boys, now you have your very own special memories of the Anzac Day 2009 weekend that you can take with you far and wide and always remember that you played a small, but very significant part of the Redcliffe Tigers U16’s TEAM.

 

All parents and friends who witnessed today’s match should be justifiably proud of the boys’ efforts.

 

Best Players: Cantlin, Adsett, Spencer, Strang, Wilkinson, Wadley, Van Haaften
