Under 19

Rovers 19s down Monash

The Rovers Under 19s had a good win over Monash Blues on Saturday, getting up by 8 points at Castlefield Reserve.

The Rovers got off to yet another slow start giving Monash a 5 goal lead early in the second quarter.

It was Lewis Turner’s goal that ignited the Rovers with his kick off the ground that would have made even the Socceroos proud. The Rovers drive from the midfielders started to take shape and Campbell Jones became dominant in the second quarter kicking a few himself.

Turner came up with another major from a difficult angle and all of a sudden the Rovers went into the main break just behind.

Monash knew they were in for a tough one and the lead changed a number of times for the remainder of the game, however the composure of James Massey at full back turned away many Monash forward thrusts.

Wakeling became solid in the back line after being beaten in the first quarter and Luke Morcom was also very steady in defence, along with Jack Daley and John Aikin. Nick Hewett was also able to quieten down the opposition’s dominant number 5.

Jim Benjamin became a winner on his wing after a little blast from coach John Cesario. Campbell Jones continued to mark everything coming his way and ended with 5 goals in a BOG performance.

The drive from the midfielders in James Berry, Conor Clarke, Jack Zaina, Jack Stewart and Sam Care continued and all of a sudden the Rovers started to look like a good team.

Hampton eventually ran out winners by 8 points, which was a terrific effort after being well beaten early in the game.

That’s the second win of the season and next week the boys take on Melbourne High at Boss James Reserve – a team the Rovers defeated in round one.
