NTFA Premier Division: Longford beats Bracknell to stay ahead | Examiner

newsletters, football list,

Longford marked his page with premier credentials, beating Bracknell 9.13 (67) to 3.9 (27) at home in a table-top clash. A dominant first-half performance put the writing on the wall, holding the Redlegs to one goal to secure a repeat result in their fourth round game. Luke Murfitt-Cowen and Corry Goodluck traded goals in the opening minutes, but Bracknell would have to wait over an hour for the next one, via Goodluck again. Meanwhile, Murfitt-Cowen led a dangerous line ahead of Mitch Bennett and James Gillow to give the Tigers a 38-point lead at the main break as the Redlegs inside the 50 were cut off by a solid defense. Goodluck broke the Redlegs drought with back-to-back goals in the third, but that would be all she wrote in the visiting goals department as the majors slowed down and spirits heated up in final terms.

Gillow’s efforts paid off, named best on the pitch ahead of teammates Jacob Wiggers and Cameron Gard, while Tyler Page, Ed Keach and Kobi Latham were Bracknell’s strongest. South Launceston honored their scoring men with a 16.8 (104) to 9.8 (62) win over Scottsdale. Aaron Viney’s 250th and 100th to Luke Mccarty and Tom Reinmuth ended in style with a strong performance in the second half. Leading by seven points at the main break, the Bulldogs scored nine to four goals in the third and fourth to secure the win and send the happy stage team home. Bart McCulloch gave five and Jake Laskey two as half the team found the big sticks in a better ground performance from young gun Tom Beaumont. Tom McWatters, Louis Burr and Brady Gee all kicked two, while Gee, Lochie Young and Ethan Petterwood shone for the Magpies, who are now two games behind Rocherlea. It would be Rocherlea who provided the biggest win of the round, beating George Town 28.19 (187) at 0.4 (4) as the Saints returned to Blue Gum Park. The Josh Holton and Brayden Claridge combination looks more and more frightening week by week, with Holton hitting six as the pair combined for 11 between them. Kaiden Cox-Goodyer (four), Dakota Bannister and Andrew Cox-Goodyer (three) joined in the fun while maintaining precision as ruckman Brady Scott and Jordan Cousens were named the Tigers’ top performer. Held scoreless after halftime after kicking three late in the second term, George Town was led by Joel Digney, Jaiden Gibbs, Alex Spicer and Austin Maynard in the heavy loss.

The Parrots led by a goal in the first break before everything was square in the second, increasing their lead to 12 points in three quarters before finishing by the same margin. Reliable utility Arnie Donnellan gave three shots in the win with James Griffiths opening two as the Sharks limited dangerous pair Rohan Sergeant and Matt Zanetto to one apiece. The Sharks weren’t able to reap the full benefits, however, as a scoreless third game cost them dearly. Former Riverside High School quartet Oliver Wood, Jacob Gilpin, Jacob Bonney and Jack De Wit were named the best of the Parrots while Nash Digney, Jake Pearce and Alex Blackaby were the leaders of the Sharks.
