Round 1 6th April

Preview Round 1  

The Old Scholars Football Association kicks off their season this Saturday with two night games and one day game. 

OHA host University in a night game at Geilston Bay and they will play for the Chris Nichols shield in honour of Chris who gave 20 years of support to both clubs. Jason Britten is at the helm at OHA and with a number of recruits signed on and the core of last year’s team available they will again pose problems. University have reappointed Cameron Burgess and with several signings an improvement in their form will be their priority. 

In the other night game Richmond, who have appointed Scott Allen as coach, are home to DOSA. With promising recruits and the bulk of last year’s team playing Richmond will give a good account of themselves while DOSA will be a force after a comprehensive recruiting drive to add to their already imposing playing list. 

In the only day game St.Virgils have appointed Richard Robinson as coach. They have recruited well with Ken Hall their star signing together with the return of experienced players and a new goal to goal line they will be hoping to stamp their authority this season. Nathan Senior will lead Channel and signed some really handy recruits and if their younger players can take the next step up they could be the big improvers.   

Hutchins bye. 

Starting times for the night games are Reserves at 4.15pm and Seniors at 6.30pm.

Review Round 1

Channel began their game full of running against St.Virgils but it was St.Virgils who turned on the power in the second and final quarters kicking a combined total of eighteen goals. While Channel never gave in they were generally outplayed by St.Virgils who were led by Andrew Mann, Patrick Midson, Chris Noye and Ken Hall in their 106 point win.  Luke Swards, Reece Schuth, Chris Stockfield and Will Byers stood out for Channel. 

DOSA opened their account with a 29 point win over Richmond. DOSA shot out of the blocks in a dominant first half to lead by 59 points at half time but Richmond fought back through an improved defensive effort outscoring DOSA but the gap was too great. Ben Van Kraanen, Daniel Hall, Jeff Fisher and Justin O’Brien were best for DOSA while best for Richmond were Garry Splann, Shayne Bradford, Brad Joseph and Trent Graham.    

In a cracker of a game University, with Chris Joyce (7 goals) in ominous form, looked on track for early success against OHA. They lead at every change but OHA outscored the visitors in the final quarter to win the contest by 1 point. OHA werer led by Mitch McPherson, Ben Langford, Aaron Limbrick and Paul Stanley while University’s other best players were Jake Stride, Mark Corbett and Nick Fenton.

Round 2 12-13th April

Preview Round 2

Friday night football is on at Richmond tonight (Friday) with Richmond hosting University under lights. With both teams coming off a round one loss a tight close game is assured. Richmond started slowly last week but if they can play like they did after half time for a full game they will be tough opponents this season. University could not quite finish off OHA but look very competitive and more complete with Chris Joyce partnering Field Reeves up forward. Starting times for the games at Richmond are Reserves 5.40pm and Seniors 7.40pm. 

Channel face a trying time against last years’ premiers Hutchins but they fought hard last week even though they were well beaten. Nathan Senior would have been pleased with what he saw but Hutchins, who usually pick up good players, will be a stumbling block even though they have lost several players from their premiership team.  

OHA host St.Virgils in another close encounter but OHA will need to be in control for longer parts of their games and look for more consistency because St.Virgils showed excellent team play after quarter time last week and have an exciting combination. Ken Hall’s influence is paramount to St.Virgils success with his skill and experience.

 DOSA have the bye.

Review Round 2

In unfortunate circumstances at Richmond on Friday night the game between Richmond and University was stopped ten minutes into the third quarter when the lights went out. When they failed to come back on Richmond were awarded the points after leading by 4 points courtesy of a goal from Trent Graham just prior to the power failure. It was disappointing as the game was in the balance with University looking the better team in the first half but lost Cameron Burgess and Chris Joyce to injury.

A fifteen goal final quarter by Hutchins enabled them to sweep aside Channel by 109 points with recruit Declan McShane, Matt Wright and Nick Leitch running amok sharing 18 goals between them and look dangerous again in defence of their premiership while Channel were gallant in defeat through Luke Swards, Michael Cononlon, and Reece Schuth.

 St.Virgils held on to defeat OHA by 10 points in a tight finish . After an even first half St.Virgils stepped up a gear kicking 6 goals to 3 in the third quarter but OHA fought back in the final quarter through Russell Yaxley, Marc Thompson and Ben Langford. OHA's accuracy at goal nearly got them home as St.Virgils wasted chances but held on with Michael Collis, Lucas Green and Chris Noye their best.

Round 3 20th April

Preview Round 3

Close games are predicted on Saturday in the Old Scholars Football Association and none should be closer than the St.Virgils Hutchins game at New Town. Both teams have shown early promise with St.Virgils looking impressive to date with their core of young players led by Alex Ross, Chris Noye and Lucas Green. Hutchins unearthed a star forward in Declan McShane last week and with sharpshooters Nick Leitch and Matt Wright and the experience of Clint and Travis Brown plus their younger players stepping up the reigning premiers will again be a threat.

 DOSA play OHA at North Hobart and this should also be close although DOSA had a week’s rest while OHA had a solid workout last week. Both teams will be up for the challenge but DOSA’s stronger defence and classy forwards may prove too much for OHA who will cause problems given their even spread of players.

Channel take on University at Snug and this is Channel’s chance to open their account but they will meet stiff opposition from University who have been unlucky in their first two games and will be looking to open their account.

 Richmond have the bye.

Review Round 3

OHA sent out a warning they mean business in the Old Scholars after overcoming DOSA by 15 points. DOSA began full of running with their onballers running rampant but OHA fought back becoming more accountable as both teams traded goals in a low scoring affair. OHA, led by Nick Paine who put in a faultless display supported by Nick Skeggs, Zac Burnett and Matthew Zukauskas, closed down DOSA’s dominant onballers which had a decided affect on the result. Nathan Muir, Tim Golding, Mitch Broughton and Ben Van Kraanen were best for DOSA. 

University swept Channel aside by 158 points in a one sided game at Snug. The game was over at half time but University continued to apply the pressure in a top class display through Josh Nelson, Peter McEvoy (13 goals), Field Reeves (11 goals) and Jackson Cracknell while Corey Lovell, Rob Harwood battled hard against the odds for Channel.     

A 7 goal third quarter by Hutchins broke the game open enabling them to hold off St.Virgils by 25 points. The first half was a tight struggle and St.Virgils had the better in the final quarter but Hutchins led by Luke Franks, Jamie Clark, James McMahon and Scott Nichols stood firm.  David Corbett, Ken Hall, Jacob Cole and Lucas Green stood out for St.Virgils.

Round 4 27th April

Preview Round 4

 St Virgils meet DOSA at New Town oval in the main Old Scholars Football Association match on Saturday. With both teams coming off defeats this should be a close, hard fought contest. Michael Collis and Brad Dodge are both capable of kicking bags of goals for the Saints while Ben van Kraanen has been in good form on the DOSA forward line. 

Hutchins and Richmond clash at Queenborough and another close contest should ensue. Both teams have a number of players capable of match winning performances and a high scoring game would not surprise. 

OHA host Channel at Geilston Bay and will be looking to boost their percentage against the Saints. However, if the Ships take the game easy, a surprise could occur. 

Following a lighting problem at the recent Richmond v University game at Richmond, discussions between both clubs agreed to split the points for the game and this decision has been endorsed by the Executive

University have the bye.

Review Round 4

St Virgils, after leading comfortably for most of the game, held off a desperate last quarter challenge from DOSA to score a 2 point win in Saturday’s OSFA match. St Virgils' inaccuracy in the windy conditions could have cost them the game with only 4 goals scored from 19 scoring shots.

Best for the winners were Byron Dalliston, Zac Batchelor and L Green while Kim Harvey, Sam Peacock and Benn McIntyre worked tirelessly for DOSA. 

Richmond outplayed Hutchins in the opening quarter of the game at Queenborough but from mid way through the second quarter Hutchins gained the upper hand and despite their inaccuracy scored a 20 point win. Jamie Clark, Jake Fyshe andJames McMahon were good players for the winners while Adam Daft, Mitch Baker and James Mackey were Richmond’s best. 

OHA and Channel fought out a tough 1st quarter but after that OHA took control of the match to win by 113 points. Nick Skeggs, Chris Hevey and Ben Langford stood out for the winners with Rob Harwood, Chris Foster and Matthew Roberts Channel’s best.

Round 5  4th May

Preview Round 5

Top teams, Hutchins and OHA have the chance to give themselves a break at the top of the ladder if they can win their matches in the OSFA round of matches on Saturday. 

Hutchins meet University at Queenborough (please note change of venue) in what should be a thrilling encounter as most matches between these teams have been. Peter McEvoy and Field Reeves are dangerous forwards for University and Jake Stride is a very consistent performer for them. Recruit, Clinton Brown is improving every match for Hutchins and with Lewis Franks and Jake Fyshe in good form the Lions will be a very competitive outfit. 

Richmond are always hard to beat at home and they will certainly push OHA to the limit. Both teams have been involved in close matches and Saturday should be no exception. Adam Daft is in great form for the Blues with solid support coming from Mitch Baker and Alex Cook whilst Nick Skeggs continues his good form for OHA well supported by Chris Hevey and Nick Paine.

DOSA have lost their last 2 matches and will look to getting back on the winners list when they travel to Snug to meet Channel. Ben van Kraanen continues to lead the DOSA forward line while Kim Harvey and Mitch Broughton are match winners if allowed any freedom. Rob Harwood, Luke Swards and Matthew Roberts have been consistent players for Channel throughout the season. 

Please note the Hutchins v University match will be played at Queenborough due to the unavailability of the University oval.

St Virgils have the bye.

Review Round 5

OHA’s 8 point win over Richmond was set up by solid second and third quarters where they outscored their opponents 11 goals to 4 and a had a 38 point lead at the last change.  Richmond’s final quarter comeback saw them get within 2 points of OHA but a goal on the siren saw the Ships take the game away from their gallant opponents. Nick Skeggs continued his good form with another great game for the winners, well supported by Marc Thompson, Stuart Whitelaw and Jason Britten. Alex Cook, Dane Bailey and Jayden Baker were Richmond’s best.

Hutchins almost kicked themselves out of their match against University. 7 goals from 36 scoring shots shows the leaders need to work on their goalkicking if they are to continue to win games. Agoal on the final siren was all that got Hutchins home in a nail-biter. Scott Nichols, Travis Brown and Alex Brettingham-Moore stood out for the winners while 5 goals from Chris Joyce was the highlight for University. Jake Stride and Nick Fenton also played well for the Rainbows.

As expected, DOSA scored a comfortable win over an improving Channel, although the margin of 32 points was closer that had been predicted. Ben Setchell and Reece Munnings stood out for DOSA with Jarrod Lawler and Reece Schuth among Channel’s better players

Round 6  11th May

Preview Round 6

University will be looking for a change of luck when they meet St Virgils at New Town in Saturday’s round of OSFA matches. The students have lost two matches to the last kick of the day and drawn a third to prove they are a very competitive outfit. Jake Stride, Field Reeves and Chris Joyce will be dangers to the Saints who have Zac Batchelor, Lucas Green and Ben Parremore playing consistent football.

DOSA returned to the winners list last Saturday and their clash with Hutchins at North Hobart is sure to be a hard fought affair. Sam Peacock and Justin O’Brien are in good form for DOSA while Ben van Kraanen’s first match against his former club will bring out his best. Hutchins are developing into a strong, competitive team with Scott Nichols and Travis Brown in good form.

Channel have the opportunity to open their winning account when they host Richmond at Snug. Channel showed improved form against DOSA last week while Richmond have suffered a number of narrow defeats. Rob Harwood and Michael Roberts are regularly among Channel’s better players while the Baker brothers and Alex Cook have been consisten performers for Richmond. 

OHA have the bye

Review Round 6

Richmond scored their first win of the season with a 107 point defeat of Channel in Saturday’s round of OSFA matches. As the scores indicate, Richmond were on top throughout the game with Brad Joseph, Josh Woolley and Andrew Woodham giving plenty of drive. Channel were best served by Matthew Rogers, Jarrod Lawler and David Cragg. 

Former Melbourne star, Brad Green’s 9 goals was sufficient for University to overcome St Virgils in a shootout at New Town. After an even first half, St Virgils gained a 6 goal break but University fought back to reduce the margin to 3 points at the last change and then kicked 5 goals to 2 in the last quarter to win by 18 points. Beside Green, Peter McEvoy, Aaron Fitzpatrick & Will McAdam played well for University while Ken Hall and Andrew Mann both of whom kicked 5 goals, Patrick Midson & Lucas Green were best for St Virgils.

The game North Hobart between DOSA and Hutchins was tight throughout with the margin never more than 2 goals, Hutchins running out winners by 9 points. Scott Nichols, Sam Wright (5 goals) and Clinton Brown were probably Hutchins best while Justin Carroll, Nathan Abrahams and Kim Harvey all played well for DOSA.

Round 7  18th May

Preview Round 7


With only one and a half games separating third and sixth on the premiership ladder, Saturday’s round of OSFA matches could have serious consequences for the losing teams.  

DOSA (5th) meet University (4th) at North Hobart in what may well be the most important and closest game of the round. Both clubs have high aspirations and a loss in this game could have lasting effects on their seasons. Justin O’Brien, Ben Setchell, Sam Peacock and Kim Harvey will need to be at their best if the rainbows are to be stopped. Jake Stride, Peter McEvoy, Chris Joyce and Aaron Fitzpatrick have been solid contributors for Uni and DOSA will need to watch them closely. 

Richmond host St Virgils and will be confident following their good win last week. St Virgils are in third place on the ladder but a loss in his match could see them under pressure to stay in the four. Adam Daft, Mitch Baker, Andrew Woodham and, Trent Graham have been consistent players for Richmond while Patrick Midson, Lucas Green, Brad Dodge and Andrew Mann have been among St Virgils’ better performers. A win to Richmond will put them well in contention to play finals while a loss to either side sees them in a battle for the finals.

Top teams, Hutchins and OHA meet at Queenborough and another tight match should ensue. Hutchins are getting good service from Scott Nichols, James McMahon and the Wright brothers while OHA have Nick Skeggs, Stuart Whitelaw, Ben Langford and Nick Paine providing plenty of forward chances Irrespective of the result the teams will probably stay at the top of the ladder after the match. 

Channel have the bye.

Review Round 7

University continued their winning form with a class performance in defeating DOSA by 21 points. An 8 goal first quarter set up University’s win even though DOSA reduced the margin to ten points early in the third quarter. University kicked away again through the fine efforts of Field Reeves, Jackson Cracknell, Peter McEvoy and Nicholas Hill while Justin Veitch, Nathan Abrahams, Kim Harvey and Luke Manser were best for DOSA. 

Hutchins remain the only undefeated team after comfortably accounting for their nearest rival OHA by 54 points. The game was up for grabs in the first half but Hutchins gained the ascendancy and kicked away in the second half with Declan McShane (6 goals) and Matthew Wilson, Angus Brettingham-Moore and Lewis Noye lending solid support. OHA were best served by Nick Skeggs, Marc Thompson, Zac Burnett and Paul Stanley. 

Richmond bridged the gap on the top four teams with a hard fought 29 point win over St.Virgils in what was a scrambly affair. Both teams traded goals in the first half but Richmond stifled St.Virgils dangerous forwards and broke away in the second half. Adam Daft, Nathan Woolley, Glendon Bentley and Nick Mayne stood out for Richmond with Alex Ross, Lucas Green, Jaryd Collidge and Adam Walker the best for St.Virgils.

Round 8  25th May

Preview Round 8

The battle for second position continues this Saturday in the Old Scholars with OHA, University and St.Virgils all vying for the position with Richmond also making their move up the ladder.


OHA travel to University and a close game is anticipated as both teams are similar in terms of onballers and runners. University have in form forwards Chris Joyce and Field Reeves to complement the good work further up the ground led by Peter McEvoy and Jackson Cracknell while OHA rely on Sam Bowering and their small forwards to kick a winning score and have Paul Stanley, Zac Burnett, Nick, Skeggs and Alex Rossiter in form.


The clash at Richmond sees the home team up against a struggling DOSA. Richmond have finals action in their eyes and are improving each game led by Nick Mayne, Trent Graham, Adam Daft and Nathan Woolley while DOSA are only a shadow of last years’ team although Justin Veitch, Kim Harvey, Luke Manser and Nathan Abrahams are playing well.


St.Virgils host Channel and unless Saints recapture some form a close game should eventuate. Alex Ross, Lucas Green, Ben Parremore and Chris Noye are in form while Channel are winless but their endeavour and competiveness cannot be questioned.


Hutchins have the bye.

Review Round 8

A five goal second quarter by St.Virgils broke the game open and set up their 62 point win over Channel. Very blustery conditions made scoring difficult and while Channel drew first blood, a resolute St.Virgils defence kept them in check and their forwards capitalised on of their opportunities. Lucas Green, Mark Beck, Jay Nibbs and Patrick Midson were best for St.Virgils while Greg Mills, Josh Beadle, Chris Stockfield and Daniel Rattenbury stood out for Channel. 

University put on an impressive performance in soundly defeating OHA by 80 points. University were in control throughout and the winning margin could have been greater but for a host of missed chances against a below strength OHA. Top performers for Uni were Nick Whittle, Rob Hill, Peter McEvoy and Nick Hill while Nick Skeggs, Andrew Riseley, Sam Forsyth and Brody Jordan battled on for OHA.

Richmond’s goalkicking accuracy with a stunning 8 goal performance from Trent Graham was the highlight in their win over DOSA. Little separated the teams for three quarters but Richmond kicked 5 goals to 2 in the final quarter setting up their 23 point win. Other good players for Richmond were Brad Joseph, Dane Bailey and Glendon Bentley while Cameron Golding, Justin and Kim Harvey and Justin Veitch were best for DOSA.

Round 9  1st June

Preview Round 9

The vast improvement of Richmond will be put to the test when they travel to University to face the inform home team in the Old Scholars. University have not looked back since round six with their solid starts and attacking football led by Jackson Cracknell, Nick Whittle, Peter McEvoy and Nick Hill putting their opposition on the back foot. Fifth placed Richmond have tasted victory in their last three outings but need to keep winning to put pressure on the teams above them. Trent Graham has found form in Richmond’s forward line and Adam Daft, Brad Joseph and Andrew Woodham are playing well. 

Ladder leaders Hutchins should continue their unbeaten streak when they host cellar dwellers Channel. Hutchins are the benchmark of the competition so far which is a credit to coach Nick Leitch while the arrival of Declan McShane and Clint Brown has added depth. Channel are struggling but have a group of keen young players led by Greg Mills, Daniel Rattenbury and Josh Beadle. 

A close game is forecast when fourth placed OHA meets third placed St.Virgils and the team that can maintain consistency should take the points with OHA’s Nick Skeggs, Andrew Riseley and Zac Burnett in form as are St.Virgils’ Alex Ross, Lucas Green and Jaryd Collidge.

 DOSA bye.

Review Round 9

In a thrilling hard fought contest between University and Richmond University began brightly but Richmond worked themselves into the game to lead by 22 points at half time. University reduced that margin to 1 point at the last break and held firm to win the contest by 4 points. Peter McEvoy, William McAdam, Field Reeves and Wayne Bellchambers stood out for University while Josh Woolley, James Mackey, Trent Graham and Nick Woolley were best for Richmond. 

Hutchins steamrolled Channel to the tune of 156 points at Queenborough. Only 4 goals separated the teams early but Hutchins experience and class took over as they piled on 23 goals to 3 by Channel in the next three quarters. Declan McShane with 11 goals was the star for Hutchins but he had plenty of mates led by Angus Brettingham-moore, Scott Nichols and Sam Palazzollo while Reece Schuth, Jarrod Lawler, Josh Beadle and James McQueen battled hard for Channel. 

A burst of goals in in the second and third quarters set up St.Virgils' 72 point win over OHA and while the home team fought back the damage had been done with Ken Hall, Aaron Vlahov, Ben Parremore and Tom Graves best for St.Virgils while JamesTeirney, Andrew Riseley, Aaron Limbrick and Matthew Zukauskas were best for OHA.

Round 10  15 th June

Preview Round 10

Approaching the half way mark in the Old Scholars and both DOSA and Richmond, who have fallen behind the pack, need to get back to their winning ways if they are to play a part in the finals. 

DOSA are home to St.Virgils and have been boosted by the inclusion of ex Carlton star Simon Wiggins which is a massive gain and his presence is the tonic DOSA needs to lift their standard while St.Virgils are going about their business without fuss and will look to Ken Hall, Lucas Green and Ben Parremore to lift them over the line.   

Richmond face a challenge when they host the undefeated Hutchins and a supreme effort is required if they are to upset the visitors and need Adam Daft, Trent Graham and Josh Woolley to show the way. Hutchins are the benchmark of the competition and in ominous form led by Angus Brettingham – Moore, Declan McShane and James McMahon.  

Channel could cause an upset when they face OHA but they must work hard for four quarters and convert their opportunities while OHA are experiencing a form slump not having won since round five but will be determined to hold onto fourth spot. 

University have the bye.

 Review Round 10

Richmond won every quarter when they accounted for the previously unbeaten Hutchins. It was a tight contest early but Richmond eased away in the second quarter to hold a 3 goal buffer up to the final quarter. They increased that margin to 34 points in a team lifting display led by Steven Dick, Marcus Turner, Jayden Baker and Josh Woolley while Hutchins’ best were Jamie Clark, Nick Leitch, Sam Pallazollo and Josh Archer. 

A 6 goal to 1 first quarter by DOSA proved the difference in their 40 point win over St.Virgils. Goal scoring became difficult with the slippery ball as both teams battled for ascendancy with DOSA coming out on top. Best for DOSA were Tim Golding, Ben McIntyre, Justin Veitch and Aaron Davey while Ken Hall, Aaron Vlahov, Zac Batchelor and Ben Parremore stood out for St.Virgils. 

OHA had to work hard for their win against a determined Channel. Channel were up to the challenge early but could not sustain the pressure and OHA kicked away for a 60 point win. Matthew Zukauskas, Ben Langford, Alex Rossiter and Nick Skeggs were the pick for OHA while James McQueen, Cameron Wheatley, Reece Schuth and Ben Bowerman were best for Channel.

Round 11 22th June

Preview Round 11

With only two and a half games separating first to fifth on the premiership ladder games are hotting up, none more so than the first placed Hutchins clash with second placed University. Hutchins suffered their first loss last week and will be determined to turn that around but face a formidable University who have not lost since these teams last met in round five. Both teams boast talented onballers and link up players and the game could well be decided by the respective forwards’ accuracy.


OHA will need to be on their game if they are to repeat their round five win over their more fancied opponents Richmond who are in pretty good form. OHA will be desperate for victory to retain fourth spot while a Richmond victory will put them into third spot courtesy of their greater percentage and St.Virgils having the bye.


Channel host DOSA in a night game at Snug Park and face a tough task even though they are troubling the other teams but need to be more accountable at stoppages and capitalise on their opportunities while DOSA returned to the winners list last week in a gritty display  and will be keen to continue that trend.


St.Virgils the bye.

Review Round 11

University showed their mettle in a come from behind win over Hutchins. Hutchins jumped the home team early but University fought back to trail by 26 points at the first break while reducing the deficit to 15 points at half time. Uni broke the game open in the second half to post a 12 point win with Jake Stride, Rob Hill, Sean Hamilton and Jackson Cracknell their best while Jamie Clark, Scott Nichols, Clinton Brown and Sam Wright were best for Hutchins.

 Richmond leapt into third spot courtesy of a 70 point win over OHA. It was even early but Richmond broke away in the second quarter to hold a 27 point lead and flexed their muscles in the second half taking control of the game. Josh Woolley was again in fine touch for Richmond supported by Brad Joseph, Adam Daft and Mitch Baker while James Teirney, Zac Burnett and Mitch McPherson were best for OHA.

 A 9 goal performance from Ben Van Kraanen set up a 117 point defeat to Channel in their night. Although even early DOSA took control from quarter time in their big win with Kim Harvey, Matthew Harrison and Justin Carroll other stand out players while Josh Beadle, Rob Harwood and Ben Bowerman were best for Channel.

Round 12 th June

Preview Round 12

Hutchins will be out to recapture their rounds one to nine form in the Old Scholars when they host St.Virgils whose aim will be a victory to return to third spot as Richmond have the bye. A Hutchins defeat will see them replaced on top of the ladder as University are expected to win against Channel.  Hutchins coach Nick Leitch will stress how important this game is to his players and a win will boost their morale while St.Virgils will need to take their best game form with them as they have dropped off lately.

With their eyes on fourth spot DOSA will be keen to defeat OHA but will face stiff opposition as OHA won their previous encounter.  DOSA have shown the better form of late although OHA have expectations of playing finals football so this game should be a close encounter.

University should have all the answers when they play Channel. University are enjoying their best season for a long time developing into a formidable outfit but must not take Channel lightly as they have a group of up and coming youngsters on a learning curve and they will improve in time.

 Richmond have the bye.

Review Round 12

A dominant second half by DOSA enabled them to overrun OHA by 47 points and leapfrog into the final four. OHA looked impressive early but DOSA fought back in the first half and then took control after half time with twenty shots on goal to three as they continually broke OHA’s defensive lines with Kim Harvey, Aaron Davey and Sam Peacock there best players.  Ben Langford, Andrew Riseley and Ashley Banks stood out for OHA. 

Hutchins returned to the winners list with a hard fought 6 point win over St.Virgils. Both both teams struggled for supremacy early but Hutchins kicked away to lead by 25 points at half time and 26 points at three quarter time but St.Virgils stormed home kicking five goals to two but fell short. Angus Brettingham-Moore, Leith Walker and Jake Fyshe were best for Hutchins with Aaron Vlahov, Jacob Cole and Brad Weston the pick from St.Virgils. 

University brushed Channel aside with a 113 point win. University held sway for most of the game and while Channel had a positive second quarter they were dominated by an in form team who were led by Peter McEvoy, Nick Whittle and Rob Hill while Channel’s Reece Schuth, Brad Boucher and Brad Garth-Smith battled hard.

Round 13  6th July

Preview Round 13 

University host St.Virgils in what should be a close encounter given the results of their previous clashes. Last time these teams met University had Brad Green’s 9 goals to thank for getting them over the line but have since developed into a solid unit led by forwards Peter McEvoy and Field Reeves, midfielder Michael Jones and defenders Rob Hill and the versatile Nick Whittle. St.Virgils have dropped off the pace but Aaron Vlahov, Michael Collis, Ken Hall and Lucas Green are in form and they will be heartened by last week’s strong finish. 

Richmond are home to Channel with consolidation of third spot their priority and should hold all the aces with their consistent form and their prime movers creating plenty of chances for Trent Graham and Marcus Turner. Channel have unearthed some promising talent led by Jacob Fordham, Brad Garth-Smith and Reece Schuth. 

Hutchins need to repeat last week’s performance when they play DOSA who have recaptured some timely form over the last two weeks. Denying their opposing prolific ball magnets possessions will be crucial to winning and both teams boast powerful key forwards in Declan McShane and Cameron Golding and classy midfields.    

 OHA have the bye.

It was a slugfest in round thirteen of the Old Scholars roster but University, DOSA and Richmond overcame the conditions better than their opponents as University swept aside St.Virgils in the first half to lead by 31 points at half time and they continued that trend in the second half with Chris Joyce (7 goals) and Field Reeves (5 goals) damaging forwards while St.Virgils struggled in their forward half although Jaryd Collidge and Michael Collis were creative with the 54 point win elevating University into top spot. 

DOSA led at every change to inflict Hutchins third loss with a 9 point win. In a low scoring affair DOSA, led by Justin and Kim Harvey and Matthew Fielding, built up a 20 point half time lead which appeared enough in the conditions but with Lucas Gorringe, Angus Brettingham-Moore and Luke Franks dominant Hutchins fought back in the final quarter outscoring DOSA but fell short. 

Richmond were too powerful for Channel registering a 71 point win by controlling the first three quarters and led by 82 points at the last change through Alex Cook, Glendon Bentley and Jayden Baker but Channel never gave in and outscored their opponents in the final quarter with Matt Roberts, Jay Smith and Cameron Wheatley prominent.

Round 14  13th July

Preview Round 14 

With eight rounds remaining in the Old Scholars both OHA and St.Virgils need to return to their winning ways if they hope to feature in this season’s finals series.

OHA host Hutchins and both teams are ruing losing games they should have won and a lift in intensity is required but they boast classy players led by OHA’s Stuart Whitelaw, Ben Langford and Nick Skeggs and Hutchins’ Angus Brettingham - Moore, Nick Leitch and Lewis Franks. 

On a roll since round ten and looking a true finals force DOSA meet new ladder leaders University who have won seven in a row. A cracker of a game is anticipated and DOSA’s Justin Harvey, Scott Beattie and Aaron Davey could have their hands full with University’s dangerous forwards Chris Joyce, Peter McEvoy and Field Reeves. 

St.Virgils will need to recapture their free flowing game when they take on a resurgent Richmond. Saints have stagnated lately but are a talented team needing to recapture their early season form if they are to threaten the Blues who are in good touch and have a group of players in dominant form led by defenders Alex Cook and Jayden Baker and onballer Glendon Bentley.   

Channel have the bye.

Review Round 14

DOSA turned on an outstanding performance to crush ladder leader University by 36 points. DOSA set up their victory with a 7 goals to 1 first quarter and nullified Rainbow's danger players while creating space for their own ball carriers to set up a 50 point half time lead and it took until the last quarter for University to add some respectability to their score and reduce the deficit. Justin Veitch, Justin Harvey and Scott Beattie stood out for DOSA and Mark Rippon, Peter McEvoy and Sean Hamilton battled hard for University. 

Hutchins looked on track to return to the winners list with a 6 goals to 2 in the first quarter of their game but OHA had other ideas and they dominated the next three quarters kicking 17 goals to 5 to win by 51 points. With forwards Mitch McPherson, Chris Hevey and Ashley Banks running amok OHA had all the answers but Hutchins Scott Nichols, Ollie Robinson and Lucas Gorringe played well. 

Richmond proved too strong for St.Virgils winning their clash by 35 points with the second and third quarters setting up their win after an even first quarter while St.Virgils fought the game out outscoring Richmond in the final quarter but Richmond were worthy winners.

Round 15 20th July

Preview Round 15

A terrific clash is predicted when two of the form teams in DOSA and Richmond meet in the Old Scholars Football Association roster. DOSA continues their surge up the ladder after an indifferent start with their ball carriers, forwards and defenders lifting to another level.  Richmond can move to second spot if they win and have improved dramatically under coach Scott Allen winning seven of their past eight games with an even spread of players at his disposal. 

OHA host University with the Ships looking to further enhance their finals chances while University will be desperate to hold onto top spot. OHA have been inconsistent but at their best are very good and must continue on from last week’s effort. University suffered a setback last week with a number of key players down but they will bounce back through Peter McEvoy and Chris Joyce. 

For Channel to topple St.Virgils they need to play for four quarters and convert their chances and are well led by Reece Schuth and Cameron Wheatley but the experienced St.Virgils, who are desperate for a win to keep their finals chances alive, should have enough poise and polish to carry them to victory.       

Hutchins have the bye.

Review Round 15

Richmond leapt into second spot on the Old Scholars ladder after shrugging off a persistent DOSA. Richmond worked their way to a 25 point lead at half time but DOSA hit back in the third term to set up a thrilling finish. DOSA hit the front in the final term but Richmond reclaimed the lead winning by 11 points with Jayden Baker, Brad Joseph and Glendon Bentley their best while Rhys Munnings and Kim and Justin Harvey stood out for DOSA. 

A 13 goal haul from Chris Joyce enabled University to overcome OHA by 70 points. University set up their win in the first half to lead by 78 points but OHA refused to give in and outscored University in the second half. Other good players for University were Mark Corbett and Jake Stride while Mitch McPherson, Jason Britten and Ashley Banks were good for OHJA. 

A Ken Hall led St.Virgils held off a fast finishing Channel with a 36 point win. St.Virgils kept Channel at bay for three quarters but the home team fought the game out to the end. Jason Slade and Callan Thomas were other good players for Saints while Tom Malone, Chris Stockfeld and Brad Boucher were Channel’s best.

Round 16  27th July

Preview Round 16

With six rounds remaining in the Old Scholars, the battle for finals berths is becoming intense. A close game is forecast when ladder leaders University face off against second placed Richmond. University won their round nine game but were fortunate given Richmond’s final quarter inaccuracy at goal.  This game could be a high scoring affair as both teams have star forwards in University’s Chris Joyce and Field Reeves who are first and second in the Association goalkicking award and Richmond’s Glendon Bentley and Trent Graham who is set to return from injury and given space they can all do untold damage.   

Can an improved Channel upset a Hutchins team who have lost their past two games. The departure of four key players overseas allows other players to step up and they should prevail with their available player depth  Channel are improving week by week and will be out for victory led by an enthusiastic group including Tom Malone and Matt Roberts. 

St.Virgils host OHA in a must win for both teams in their bids for finals action. While consistency has been the problem for both teams they possess classy midfielders and have very good finishers in St.Virgils’ Ken Hall and OHA’s Mitch McPherson.  

DOSA have the bye.

Review Round 16

A solid first quarter and a fast finishing final quarter by OHA enabled them to hold off St.Virgils. OHA were first to the ball and capitalised on their chances to hold a 26 point half time lead. St.Virgils failure to kick goals when in possession in their forward half proved costly and OHA made them pay with their clinical finishes. Ben MacMurray, Matthew Zukauskas and Chris Hevey with 6 goals were best for OHA while Jaryd Collidge, Patrick Midson and Adam Walker stood out for St.Virgils. 

Richmond joined University at the top of the ladder finishing strongly to defeat their counterpart by 16 points. In an even game the half time lead of 2 goals separated the teams but Richmond’s accuracy in the final quarter proved the difference and exact revenge from their round nine clash. Josh Woolley, Kieran Rogers and Mitch Baker were best for Richmond as was Cameron Burgess, Peter McEvoy and Nathan Brerton for University. 

It took a dominant second half for Hutchins to shake off a persistent Channel by 79 points. Channel took the game up to Hutchins early through Josh Beadle, Matt Roberts and Brad Boucher but Hutchins prevailed with James McMahon, Harry Nichols and Michael Egan.

Round 17 3rd August

Preview Round 17

With the top two spots still up for grabs in the Old Scholars the clash between third placed Hutchins and second placed Richmond is a must win for either team. Clashes are even this season and a tight encounter is expected although Hutchins form has dropped away slightly and an improved performance is required whereas Richmond have gone from strength to strength since round ten with the return of two players from the Statewide League a bonus. 

OHA is another team that must win but will have to be on their game against a vastly improved Channel. OHA need James Teirney and Chris Hevey to control the ruck contests but will meet stiff opposition from Reece Schuth who is having a good season along with Josh Beadle, Matt Roberts and Brad Boucher but have to put in for four quarters. 

St.Virgils face DOSA and have the chance to right their indifferent form and their slim final chances while a DOSA win will strengthen their finals chances in their clash at New Town. Injuries have hit St.Virgils but they are a capable outfit while DOSA have looked promising over the past six rounds but must retain their form.

University bye.

Review Round 17

Richmond grabbed top spot on their way to a gutsy 21 point win over Hutchins in the Old Scholars. The game was up for the taking at half time and Richmond took full advantage in the third quarter slamming on seven goals to Hutchins’ two to open up a 39 point break and while Hutchins came home strongly Richmond steadied to run out victors. Kieran Rogers, Adam Daft and Josh Woolley were best for Richmond while James McMahon, Nick Leitch and Elliot Noye stood out for Hutchins. 

OHA’s finals hopes are well alive after seeing off Channel by 61 points. OHA were in control throughout the game with Russell Yaxley, Ashley Banks and Paul Hudson dominant but their inaccuracy denied them a much needed percentage boost. Channel battled for three quarters but finished on through the efforts of Reece Schuth, Chris Stockfeld and Ben Bowerman. 

DOSA remained in fourth spot after their comfortable 62 point win over St.Virgils whose finals hopes nosedived. St. Virgils were in the game up to half time but DOSA kicked away through Ben McIntyre, Sam Peacock and Cameron Golding while Tim Nicholas, Zac Batchelor and Brad Dodge were best For St.Virgils.

Round 18 10th August

Preview Round 18

With four rounds remaining in the Old Scholars Hutchins, DOSA and OHA are locked in a battle for third and fourth spots although OHA have one less game due to a bye in round twenty. 

DOSA should have all the answers when they host Channel in a night game at North Hobart. DOSA will be wary of complacency but have too much at stake while Channel need to be competitive for four quarters if they are to cause an upset. Entry to the games is free with the Reserves kicking off at 4.15pm followed by the Senior game at 6.30pm.

Hutchins are away to University and a win will help them immensely while University have their eye on a top two finish and with a potent forward line suggestions are they will have Hutchins measure but Nick Leitch, Elliot Noye and Luke Franks may have other ideas.

Richmond should hold all the aces against OHA with the visitors consistency over the past three rounds a bonus but Richmond with their rich vein of runners and link players blend in superbly with their forwards while OHA have a key in Chris Hevey while Mitch McPherson and Ashley Banks are creative forwards.

St.Virgils bye.

Review Round 18

Richmond sent a message to their opposition with a clinical display against OHA in the Old Scholars. A nine goal haul in the premiership third quarter took the wind out of the Ships sails setting up their 67 point win after a reasonably close first half. Richmond’s midfielders and onballers in Mitch Baker, Adam Daft and Ben Cato created havoc on OHA’s defence but Andrew Riseley, Nick Skeggs and Trent Fenton were good players. 

An even performance by Hutchins enabled them to defeat University by 30 points. An even spread of goals in each quarter by Hutchins was the difference as University faltered in the opening and final quarters failing to put scoreboard pressure on their opponents. The win saw Hutchins leapfrog into second spot through the efforts of Nick Leitch, Sam Heron and Scott Nichols while Field Reeves, Jake Stride and Rob Hill played well for University. 

DOSA looks to have secured fourth spot after they dealt Channel a 91 point belting. DOSA applied the pressure from the first quarter and the game was over by half time through James Cerritelli, Rhys Munnings and David Ingles but Channel had a good third quarter and Jarrod Lawler, Jacob Fordham and David Cragg battled hard.

Round 19 17th August

Preview Round 19

Tension and excitement is building in the Old Scholars as finals approach and with three rounds remaining it appears the top four is settled with the interest in who will finish second between Hutchins and University.

Hutchins must defeat a struggling St.Virgils to hold second spot as University are tipped to defeat Channel. Hutchins form has improved over the last three rounds with their midfielders having an influence and if they dominate, St.Virgils will be in trouble although St.Virgils defence will make Hutchins forwards work hard. 

If previous results are any indication the OHA versus DOSA clash should be a thriller. OHA dropped vital games which cost them dearly and they will keep DOSA guessing as to what approach they take being giant killers one week and ordinary the next while DOSA want to lock down fourth spot and are finishing their season off strongly. 

University should handle anything Channel throw at them with the incentive of finishing second to spur the home team on. University’s evenness will be a problem for Channel who have shown they can match it with their opposition for periods but cannot sustain the pressure for four quarters.  

Richmond have the bye.
