Freezing, wet ol' day today. Stayed in by the fire and watched a bit of the live stream of the Pies and Launceston game on facebook in between the Bluebaggers and Swantits.
Saw Lindisfarne got rolled by the Mont boys at Abbotsfield. Huge turnup after last week!
The Farne not hungry enough, thought breaking the drought last year was good enough and don't look as interested in winning more.
Claremont's been either great or terrible, no in between this year. That kept them in touch with the finals anyway.
Dodges beat Hobart in the sand easily to stay undefeated on top, was close to 70 points. Hobart can't kick a winning score of any sort. Won't win a game this year. s**thouse.
Dodges doing what they have to to win each week, been a solid season from them so far without being sprctacular.
Huonville had a scrappy win in the wet down at Huonville by about 8 goals. Kept Sorell to 2 goals all day.
Either N.Norfolk have a boatload of injuries or they put on a performance as poor as their bad old days in the statewide league.
They got a smashing by Huonville at the Valley of Love by 15 goals.
Would have to be the biggest belting they've got up there for about 20 years.
Had them as my smoky to win it this year but on that effort the race is wide open.
Sounds like the Lions are building again under Lamprill.
Dodges undefeated still, flogged Sorell at Sorell by 80 something points.
My spies tell me there's a bit of anymosity between the Sharks and Sorell as the council down there plan to spend millions on turning Pembroke Park into a sporting hub for the area while not tipping a cent into Shark Park at all. Like putting lipstick on a pig in Pembroke's case.
It'll always be a windy, open and horrible footy ground. Dodges Ferry is dreadful too.
Hobart'll be absolutely kicking themselves over their shocking kicking on Saturday.
Lost to Claremont by 6 goals but should've rolled them. Kicked about 2-20 at one end!
Most winnable game all year for them and they'll be filthy at that.
Claremont have a heap of injuries supposedly but could get to within a game of Cygnet this week.
Premiership race very open, any one of about four sides could win it this time.
Injuries will probably determine who wins it.
SFL Seniors Final Scores: Round 15.
Lindisfarne 16.19 (115) d Cygnet 16.9 (105)
Dodges Ferry 21.6 (132) d New Norfolk 14.19 (103)
Claremont 13.9 (87) d Sorell 9.5 (59)
Crowd of more than 2,000 piled into Cygnet where Barry Hall lined up in a special appearance for Cygnet.
Hall booted 6 to half time in close game, but was held to one in the second half.
Lindisfarne held a 29 point lead at the final change but the Port came back strongly, the Two Blues secured a late winner to take a 10 point victory.
Dodges Ferry held sway all day but couldn't quite shake a persistent New Norfolk off at Shark Park.
Was not much in it to half time but the Sharks drew away after half time to win by 29 points.
A much improved performance this week by the Eagles after last week's dismal display.
Claremont drew level on points - but with a poorer percentage - with Cygnet after a 28 point win over Sorell at Abbotsfield Park. Claremont remain in sixth position 25% behind fifth placed Cygnet.
Dodges Ferry remain unbeaten on top (12-0) with Lindisfarne jumping up to second (8-4), Huonville Lions with the bye yesterday drop to third (8-4), New Norfolk in fourth (7-5) after a lapse in form recently with the aforementioned Cygnet rounding up fifth on 5-6.
Big Barry Hall strapped on the boots for Cygnet again yesterday in their home match against Sorell, fresh off a 101 point belting of Hobart at the TCA Ground last week. Hall booted four in Cygnet's 83 point win in atrocious conditions to ensure they'll play in the finals.
Lindisfarne belted winless Hobart by 128 points at Anzac Park, consigning Hobart to the wooden spoon and a winless season, their second such season in seven years. The Tigers have lost fifteen matches in a row.
Huonville Lions recorded an easy win over Claremont at Abbotsfield Park by 98 points.
With one round of matches to play, Dodges Ferry remain on top (48), Huonville in second (40), Lindisfarne a game behind on 36, New Norfolk sit fourth on 32 and Cygnet remain fifth on 28.
