Missed opportunities cost Rovers against NOBS

The Hampton Rovers put in a much improved performance than round one but couldn?t come home with the four points as they took on North Old Boys at The Boss on Saturday.

 

A smallish crowd by Rovers standards was on hand at David Street hoping for the Rovers to turn around the disappointing first round loss at the hands of St.Bedes Mentone.

 

North Old Boys, recently merged with St.Patricks College, were also looking for their first win of the season. The Rovers welcomed Gary Carr back into the team, and will see the return of further players in the coming weeks.

 

It was a game of missed opportunities for the home side with several set-shots for goal missing the target, however the scores remained tight until mid-way through the final term as the N.O.B.S. kicked away to defeat the Rovers by 21 points.

 

Jeremy Yellend put in a good performance for the Rovers kicking 3 goals while Mark Devereaux and Anthony Browne were the other multiple goalkickers with 2 each. Sam Parkinson was a standout for Hampton playing in the backline and also pushing up the ground. Browne and Greg Cannell performed well also.

 

The Rovers will hope to see the return of a couple of players including Heath Tregear next weekend as they take on the Monash Blues away at Monash University in Clayton.

 

North Old Boys also proved too strong in the Reserves. Best for the Rovers were Paul Adams, Lachlan Wheeler and Jackson Ward. Luke Holt kicked 2 goals with Graham Davis and Josh Glanville kicking one each. The Under 19’s went down to Mazenod away at Central Reserve.
