Reserves Match Report

Published on: Apr 16 2018 | Author: Joseph Marciano |

Norwood’s reserves registered their second win of the year defeating Glenelg FC by 17-points at Gliderol Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

In a tough match Norwood held off the Bays all day holding the lead right through to the final siren.

Former Port Magpie forward Kieran Agius played his role booting three majors, while new recruit Josh Glenn enjoyed the conditions gathering 23 disposals and kicking two goals.

Midfielder, Alex Forster also pressed his claim for selection collecting 30 disposals which included 10 marks and four inside 50’s.

Norwood worked hard throughout the match spreading quickly in order to stretch the Bays to generate attacks.

Defensively, Norwood was sound despite conceding two late goals which put the margin to 17-points.

A real highlight from the match was Norwood’s ability to take marks (58 to 78) and then capitalise to create scoreboard pressure.

Gavin Hughes coach of the Reserves will take a lot of confidence out of the match and will look to continue this form against North Adelaide next week.

One disappointing aspect from the match was that Anthony Giannini re-injured his hamstring early in the contest.

Giannini will be out for a few weeks and will be monitored throughout the coming weeks.
