Statewide football returned to the tight confines of Queenborough Oval last Saturday when our Glenorchy boys took on a determined Hobart City outfit in a classic arm-wrestle.  

Always looking for that extra edge, "AC" took the opportunity to recreate the dimensions of Sandy Bay's former home ground by using witches hats at training last Thursday, and it may well have been the difference in securing the 4 points.  

The game opened at a fast pace, and although the 'Pies had much of the play in the first quarter, nothing separated the 2 teams at the first break, but it was the second quarter effort that had the coach fired up at half-time.  Hobart City led by as much as 25 points during the second term, and if it wasn't for a couple of late goals, the margin could have well been more than the 14 points the scoreboard showed at the main break.

After a deserved "spray" from AC that had the paint peeling from the change room walls, our boys came out in the 3rd quarter and showed exactly what playing for the Black and White is all about.  With Mitch Rainbird dominating, Glenorchy piled on 7 goals in 10 minutes in a relentless, skilful display of persistent running football.  Rhys Mott was the link man during the term, setting up countless opportunities, and big-man Cameron Duffy gave our on-ballers first use, time and time again.  A 14-point half-time deficit was turned into a 9 point 3/4 time lead, and with more tackles in the quarter for the entire match,

AC urged the boys to keep up the pressure into the final quarter.  A see-sawing dramatic 4th quarter had Hobart City regain the lead, but 2 late goals from Jaye Bowden steadied the Magpie Ship, and the final siren gave the boys a dramatic 15-point win.  Although slightly disappointed with the first half, "AC" was ecstatic with the effort shown when we had our backs to the wall.  

In the earlier game, our Development League team continued their fantastic start to the season with an 82 point win.  Aaron Grubb was on fire with 7 goals, and Shaun Stewart was brilliant with a best on ground performance.  

Make sure you make the trip down to the Twin Ovals this Saturday as our boys take on an improving Kingborough Tigers at 2pm!  Go Pies!
