Semi Final Day  -  Richmond Oval   Top of Page

Richmond put on a beautiful sunny day and perfect conditions for football. A large crowd enjoyed four hard fought contests

A couple of crucial positional changes coupled with a fanatical desire to win got DOSA over the line second semi-final defeating Hutchins by 7 points. Both teams wasted chances at goal with Hutchins leading by 6 points at the first break which they increased to 16 points at half time. Hutchins continued their dominance early in the third quarter and things looked bleak for DOSA but they rallied and goals in the latter part of the quarter enabled them to reduce the margin to 7 points at three quarter time. Hutchins broke out to a 13 point lead early in the final quarter but the move of Sam Peacock and Cameron Golding to the forward line paid dividends for DOSA as the latter proved too strong and the former kicked his team into the grand final. Aaron Parker, Tad Mayhew and Todd Willing while Hutchins Angus Brettingham-Moore, Claude Alcorso, Larry Owen, Lewis Franks and Brent O’Leary stood out.

 An 8 goal final quarter by Richmond topped off their thumping win over University in the first semi-final. Both teams battled for ascendancy early but Richmond were able to keep their opponents at bay with tireless work from Troy Hitchens, Brad Joseph, Kieran Rogers and Scott Boxall  allowing them two to three goal buffers at the breaks and although University’s Trent Stevens, Rob Hill, Mark Corbett and Curtis Bielski worked hard the final quarter avalanche saw the Blues home by 59 points and a preliminary final spot.  

DOSA advanced to the grand final in the Reserves defeating University and Hutchins won the knock out semi-final over Channel.

Hutchins booked a grand final appointment with DOSA next Saturday in Old Scholars Football Association with a crushing win over Richmond in the preliminary final at North Hobart. It was a scramble early but Tom Triffett drew first blood for Hutchins who added three more goals while Richmond wasted chances with poor kicking rewarded only with a solitary goal from Kieran Rogers. The second quarter was a repeat of the first with Hutchins kicking three goals while Richmond could not buy a goal kicking six behinds to trail by 32 points at half time. With their big men taking control in the air Hutchins added the icing to the cake, dominating their opponents to ram home seven goals to one in the third quarter. They held a 65 point lead entering the final quarter which they increased to 89 points at the final siren in an awesome display.  Richmond  lost utility Josh Woolley before half time and sadly missed key forwards Glendon Bentley and Kurt Baker. Hutchins had winners everywhere with on baller Larry Owen, defenders Sam Heron, Jamie Clark and Lewis Franks along with midfielders Sam Wright and Brent O’Leary. Defenders Rod Brumby, Jayden Baker and Ben Cato and on ballers Shane Bradford, Dean Bailey and Mitch Baker battled hard for Richmond.   

In the Reserves Hutchins defeated University by 20 points  and will face DOSA in the grand final.
