BFL SCOREBOARD – ROUND 15

“THE” RESULT

Anglesea has put its finals destiny back in its hands with a 53-point win over Geelong Amateur at Alcoa Oval. The Roos held Ammos to their lowest score of the year in the 13.12 (90) to 5.7 (37) victory. “I’ve said all along there’s not much between the top six on any given day,” Anglesea coach Paul Nigro said. “We weren’t happy with our last quarter last week (against Torquay), and we had to regroup and regroup quickly, and would be measured by our response within seven days. The lads were terrific in their response.” Not surprisingly, Nigro was impressed with the way Anglesea defended. “They had more inside 50s in the first half, even though I felt in general play we were probably on top. We did the right things at the right time, and then took our opportunities after half time going forward.” Veteran Dale Carson, whose short retirement hadn’t concluded when the two teams drew back in Round 7, was outstanding, especially in coming off his opponent to help Jordan Harrison limit Ammos’ spearhead Mitch Day to just one goal for the afternoon.

MEESEN FACING RACE TO BE FIT FOR SEPTEMBER

If Modewarre is to win consecutive BFL premierships it may have to do it without co-coach John Meesen. The star ruckman underwent surgery last week after rupturing a tendon in his finger and admits he will cutting it fine to play again in 2019. “I’ll hope to get back, but I’ll be unlikely to play up until finals,” Meesen told K rock’s The Wash-Up. “How far we go in finals will determine, I guess, my availability. But, at this stage, it’s probably looking unlikely.” In better news for the Warriors, Meesen’s co-coach Seamus Orr is closing in on a return from a wrist injury that has kept him to just three games in 2019. “We haven’t set a timeframe on that return, but when he’s ready to go he’ll put his hand up and we’ll love to get him back in the side.”

STREAK OVER FOR WARRIOR

Tom Worpel’s impressive run of consecutive senior games at Modewarre came to an end on the weekend after he was dropped to the reserves against Drysdale. Worpel, who joined the Warriors ahead of the 2015 season, had played 96-straight matches without missing before being omitted for the clash with the Hawks. He was Modewarre’s leading goalkicker heading into the weekend with 30 majors.
