Casey Demons v Sandringham - Round 19

Recommended Posts

The game didn't go to script but nevertheless was an entertaining one. Hutchins and Bugg mitigated some of the damage early on with Kent coming in to clean up at the end. It was a game where no one really played 4 quarters but Casey kept working hard throughout to overcome Sandringham.

They are both 24, Kent is a month older so you are sort of correct. 

Correct my error but it still does not talter that he has been inconsistent all his career and is out injured a lot.

JKH can't play pressure footy

Hannan and garlett will have played 11 games each for season 2018 after this round.

But only played in the same team twice. I suspect it’s either hannan or garlett.

Jkh will drop out for melksham next week I would think.

Another strong game by Dec, Drunkn.  Based on radio broadcast, he was involved a lot, and was mentioned among the better players.  My assessment from afar is that he stood up very well in defence, in the absence of Pedo .

Much appreciated thanks mate

Hannan is the held over emergency and he trained fully this morning at Goschs whereas Vanders was a no show.

If Hannan is a late in for Vanders tomorrow which player do we hold over since all other emergencies played today at Casey?

If Vanders was in doubt, they would have held an extra player over. I suspect Vanders had a light week, given his last 2years.

jkh is playing Viney's role so I am not sure those two are vying with him for the same spot.

I assume Bugg played as an inside mid today for Casey.

I'm interested in the playing Vineys role you mention.  What makes you say that?

Personally I felt Tyson had been playing that role in the starting midfield, while JKH had been playing as a defensive winger (a similar role to Stretch (when he was in the side), and Salem and Vince have both played at times) and a high half forward (shortcoming to ANB).

At stoppages he stays outside, defensive side of the contest, stopping the run of any player (usually his direct opponent) who gets around the back of the pack, but also being the first long spread/switch option when we get the ball. He pushes forward up the far wing when we win the ball so it's often the option wide or shallow to half forward. 

He has covered a lot of ground in transition. 

Some differences are illustrated in stats, for example in games this year:

Viney has had a higher contested possession ratio; more inside 50s, lots more meters gained and clearances. Viney has a very even distribution of ball around the ground with lots of possessions in the center. 

While JKH has had more rebound from D50s, more intercept possessions. JKH has more of his possessions near the flanks.

That makes sense. From all reports he trained and looked fine on Thursday, we were hoping his absence today wasn’t anything serious.

FIFTY MINUTES by KC from Casey

The Casey Demons made it 12 wins on end with yet another come-from-behind victory at home against Sandringham on Saturday night.  The lowly Zebras jumped the Demons and took the lead at the two minute mark of the opening term and kicked the game’s first four goals to hold a game high 23-point lead just before quarter time. 

By then, the home side was one man down after Bernie Vince hurt his AC joint in a collision with an opponent. He immediately left the field and ended the day in hospital. His season is over.

Casey’s first goal came early in the second term  with a free kick to the diminutive Will Stephenson. They ground their way back into the game with four goals to one during this period to go into the sheds at half time only three points in arrears.   

During the main break, the consensus among the crowd was that the Demons would overrun their opposition in the second half but it was Sandringham that came out firing and booted the first two goals of the third term to retake the initiative. 

Casey fought back with a goal to Mitch King but when the Zebras immediately responded, they led 8.6.54 to 5.8.38. The goal to Sandy’s Ray Connellan came at the 10 minute mark and was to be the visitors’ last score for the game.   

The next 20 minutes or so were spent by Casey clawing back the deficit as they added goals to Corey Machaya and Dean Kent and four behinds to draw to level by the final break.  

The Demons finally hit the lead with a behind five minutes into the last quarter but the arm wrestle continued for what seemed an eternity but it took until the 13 minute mark for Sam Weideman to break the impasse with his second goal which gave his team a 7 point lead. 

There would be another two goals later in the term but the Zebras were cooked as the Demons pushed their lead out to 21 points at the finish. In the last 50 minutes of play, Casey scored 5.7.37 to nothing. The win put it on top of the VFL ladder after Richmond lost its second game in a row. 

The nature of this contest saw to it that very few players were on top throughout but special accolades must go to defenders Declan Kielty who admirably filled the large void left by Cam Pedersen in the key defensive post with his strong marking and attack on the football and skipper Jack Hutchins whose strength in the clinches was instrumental in holding back the tide early and then in shutting down the Zebras in the latter part of the game. They were very capably assisted by youngsters Dion Johnstone and Harry Petty who returned to the field after injuring his finger in the second term. Josh Wagner and Jay Lockwood were very solid as well in a strong defensive effort.

Mitch Gent and Angus Scott were busy all day and Corey Wagner maintained his  consistent high standard of play.

With the loss of Vince, Tom Bugg stepped up to the plate with 31 disposals for the day and Dean Kent was excellent up forward with three telling goals when they were needed. Mitch King and Sam Weideman combined well in a game that saw a rare Casey win in the overall ruck duels. The latter also contributed two goals while up forward. Young rookie ruckman Lachie Filipovic spent much of the game on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

The Casey juggernaut moves on to Box Hill City Oval for what promises to be a hard fought tussle between two teams that will fight out the finals next month.
