Launceston 1.4.10 def by Lauderdale 12.11.83

Saturday won’t go down as the most memorable day for The Blues at Windsor Park as the Senior side struggled to score against a very dogged and determined Lauderdale side. Being outclassed by a side that was far more committed and ruthless, not allowing our young side any space and time, will go down as a great learning curve for the games ahead.
Beau Green (playing his 250th), Joe Groenewegen, Scott Stephens and Jordan Harris all tried valiantly to lift their side along with youngsters Curtis Murfett (playing his first game), Jack Dyer and Casey Reissig but were overwhelmed by a very strong and persistent Lauderdale outfit. We look forward now to the challenge of playing the undefeated Clarence side at Bellerive next Saturday.

Our Development League team – TSL 2’s – went down by 9 points in a tight clash, not helped by some poor kicking at goal. They took a 3 goal lead into the second quarter but were unable to hold Lauderdale who put through 6 unanswered goals with the wind, and although outscoring the Southern Bombers in the second half were unable to bridge the gap. Brayden Pitcher, Zach and James Griffiths, Shaughan Killalea and Lachlan Bonney never gave up against their older and bigger opponents. Hamish Leadham continues to battle manfully as does our Captain, Nathan Zanetto.
