Geelong V Collingwood-Match Report

Posted by Josh on September 20, 2009

I had the pleasure of going to watch this game with Ben and it gives me the opportunity to do a great Match Report.

1st Quarter- Pendlebury was a late change, Beams came in to the selected side. After Collingwood kicked the first 2 goals, Geelong came storming back kicking the next 24 points. Ablett had 12 touches in the first quarter. It was 10 point ball game at Quarter Time. Byrnes and Ottens had kicked great goals.

Score: Gee 3.6.24 V Col 2.2.14

2nd Quarter: The 2nd quarter was lively. Geelong kicked 4 goals to 3 and Collingwood missed many chances. Geelong had 104 possession to the Pies 84 whilst Collingwood dominated the Inside 50’s 18 to 9. In the 2nd quarter O’Bree collected 68 SC points,  Hawkins 59 and Harry Taylor 52. The Cats led by 11 at the main break. It was time for me to go and buy a Warm Meat Pie.

Score: Gee 7.7.49 V Col 5.8. 38

3rd Quarter:The 3rd quarter was total domination. 113 to 80 disposals. 4 goals to 1. and it really blew the game away. Joel Corey had 40 SC points, Corey Enright 37, S.Johnson 34 and Chapman 34. Stevie J was amazing but only managed 1.3. Collingwood turned the ball over 18 times in the 3rd term to Geelong’s 11 and that resulted in 3 of Geelong’s 4 goals in that quarter. The Cats also won the I50 count, 16 to 7.

Score: 11.13.79 V Col 6.9. 45

4th Quarter: The season was already over for Collingwood and the Cats didn’t stop. The Cats had 122 possessions in the final term and the flood gates completely opened. The Cats kicked 6.5 to the Pies 0.2. Bartel was on fire racking up 14 disposals and Chapman kicked a few goals. SC points: Bartel 39, Chappy 33 and Gary Ablett 32. Three of Geelong’s goals came from stoppages in the last term signalling the dominance the Cats had in the ruck.

Final Score: GEE 120 DEF COLL 47 by 73 points

SC scores: G.Ablett 150, P.Chapman 142, J.Bartel 131, C.Ling 121, J.Corey 120 and H.Shaw 112.

Votes:

3. Paul Chapman. Kicked 5 goals and had 26 possessions and 142 SC points.

2. Gary Ablett. Ablett had an outstanding game. 34 possessions and 2 goals.

1. C.Ling. Stopped Dane Swan and collected 27 possessions himself.

A Few Stats

Saints  captain Nick Riewoldt was named with the (C) and Chris Judd (VC). It is the fifth time Cat defender Matthew Scarlett and Crow midfielder Simon Goodwin have been given the honours with both players being selected in the back half. The most talked about position was the full-back position which was taken by Matthew Scarlett and Brian Lake was named in the back pocket. The surprise was that Leon Davis was named in the side and West Coast forward Mark LeCras missed out after his outstanding year. Paul Chapman was surprisingly named at half-forward and Brendon Goddard was named on the BENCH for his first selection in the team. Nick Dal Santo, Matthew Boyd and Adam Goodes round up the bench. Dane Swan was named at half-forward as expected and Brendan Fevola was worthily selected at full-forward after winning the Coleman Medal. Simon Prestigiacomo, Mitch Clark and Sam Gilbert were unlucky not to be selected. Lance Franklin surely could have been selected in the forward pocket?

Collingwood V Adelaide

Posted by Josh on September 12, 2009

 

COLLINGWOOD

 

 

ADELAIDE
B: Graham Johncock, Ben Rutten, Andy Otten
HB: Brent Reilly, Scott Stevens, Michael Doughty
C: Andrew McLeod, Scott Thompson, David Mackay
HF: Chris Knights, Trent Hentschel, Bernie Vince
F: Jason Porplyzia, Kurt Tippett, Brett Burton
Foll: Ivan Maric, Tyson Edwards, Simon Goodwin
Int: Robert Shirley, Brad Symes, James Sellar, Patrick Dangerfield, ,
Emg: Phil Davis, Richard Douglas, Rory Sloane

In: Robert Shirley
Out: Richard Douglas (omitted)

 

FORM GUIDE (past five matches):
WWWLL (Collingwood); LWWWW (Adelaide Crows)

MATCH ODDS:
Collingwood $2.25, Adelaide $1.65 (TAB Sportsbet)

PLAYERS TO WATCH:

Dane SWAN

Swan has had a fantastic year and is one of the favourites for the 2009 Brownlow Medal. Swan has dropped of his best in the past few weeks but has still been up with the best players on the ground. Swan statistics this year show he has been working hard for the ball. Swan has averaged 31.8 disposals a game in 09′, 7.8 marks, 3.0 tackles and 5.4 inside 50’s. He was ranked 1 in the competition for disposals in 2009.

Bernie VINCE

Vince has been in outstanding form in Adelaide’s ;ast few weeks when they have demolished Carlton and Essendon. Vince has been in career best form and is expected to perform to high levels in this game and in finals to come. Vince who is still 23 has already established himself as one of Adelaide’s best players. Vince was taken 32 in the 2005 draft and has improved ever since. Vince has averaged: 27.2 disposals, 6.0 marks, 2.8 tackles and 97.8 SuperCoach points. He had 34 disposals and 3 goals against Carlton in Round 22.

Previous Games

Round 1, 2009
Adelaide – 13.12 (90)
Collingwood – 13.8 (86)

Round 19, 2009
Adelaide – 9.14 (68)
Collingwood – 13.11 (89)

WHO WILL WIN:

Collingwood have the psychological advantage being at home but Adelaide are in red hot form kicking more than 25 goals in both of the past few weeks. I think Adelaide will be to good for the Pies but I will give both teams a great chance to win the game. If Collingwood were to win: Swan, Davis, Didak and Jack Anthony would all have to fire and if Adelaide were to win: Vince, Tippett, Knights and Goodwin would all have to bring there best games down to Melbourne. Prestigiacomo will be the most likely person to play on Tippett and Swan would probably play on Vince. You would think Rutten would play on Anthony and Shirley will probably get Alan Didak. This Game should be decided by less than 20 points and I would think both teams will form a zone to stop the other team with ther deadly attacks. Expect a low scoring game with heaps of excitement.

THE WINNER:

Adelaide by 10 points.
