Jackas hold-off Chelsea challenge

 

AJAX's pre-season form across the board showed no signs of slowing on the weekend, as an undermanned Seniors side shook off a late challenge from Chelsea to record a 15-point victory in wintery conditions. 

 

With likes of Warren Steinberg, Josh & Jarryd Ludski and reigning Best & Fairest winner Adam Caplan on the sidelines, it was a perfect opportunity for the depth of the club to put their hand up for a potential round one berth. 

 

Kicking with a two-goal breeze, the Jackas kept the home-side scoreless in the opening quarter.

 

 

Chelsea responded in the second term, bridging the gap to 15 points at the main break.

 

There were a couple of bright spots for the Jackas before half-time with 19-year old Josh Baron kicking his first senior goal, while Dean Rotenberg continued his strong pre-season form, kicking his second.

 

Goals to David Fayman and Brandon Joel lengthend the advantage to 21-points at three quarter time.

 

 

With the conditions favouring the home-side in the final term, they converted their chances in front of goal, piling on the first three majors to trail by four points with six minutes remaining. 

 

Last gasp goals to Richie Simon and Asher Burstin put the result beyond doubt as the Jackas ran out winners 9.7 (61) to 7.4 (46).

 

Later on the Jackettes prevailed over a highly-fancied Rosebud, recording a 4.9 (33) to 3.1 (19) victory. Vanessa Mrocki led the way with two goals.

 

 AJAX's new and revamped Media Department will be boundary side at every Senior game, all season, endeavouring to deliver unrivalled live match coverage via twitter (@ajax_footy) as well as a range of other club media interactions throughout the week (Stay tuned!)

 


Coaches' Corner


AJAX Media caught up with some of the coaches after Saturday's results and asked them to review their team's performance.

 

 

 

Reserves Coach Rob Paterson's Report: 

 

"The AJAX reserves continued to develop and adapt to the game structure against Chelsea on Saturday. Welcoming back some players who missed the first match we also had the opportunity to try out some players in new positions. Once we got our running and support game going we put together some really good massages of play. The second half of the match saw Chelsea outscore us and give us a few areas to work on prior to the final practice match against Old Trinity. All up it was a pleasing performance and certainly gives us a lot to look forward to for 2016."

 

Under -19s Coach Ash Shenker's Report:

 

 

"The Under-19s continued their rapid development in a hard-fought victory over Chelsea. The young guns put some great pieces of play together and showed plenty of glimpses of what's to come in 2016. 

 

Elliot Blau put in an impressive display down back, while tough-nut Jesse Velleman suffered a broken nose in a superb (and rugged) performance in the midfield.
 
 
With a lengthy list of players and an even spread of talent, it's an exciting prospect for what the side can achieve throughout the season."

 

The Jackas will hold an intra-club session at Moorabbin this Saturday, before their final practice match on April 3 vs Old Trinity.
