Jock Reynolds Evolution League WRAP: Round 8
I suppose you’re all wondering how your JREL team went on Sunday?
We’ll get to that, but first, I want to thank Punt Life. Go grab yourself a new thread for your wardrobe.
Geelong hosted Gold Coast in the first game in a tight, high scoring affair. Geelong clinched the win in the final minutes with a late goal, but Gold Coast didn’t go away to their credit.
Popular captain’s pick Jarrod Witts posted a respectable 68 score, but it was Touk Miller and Mitch Duncan who flew the flag for their respective sides with scores of 81 and 88. Mitch Duncan came away with 11 disposal, all kicks, and 3 goals. Touk Miller finished up with 7 disposals, 8 tackles and a goal.
The second game for the night, St Kilda and West Coast at Marvel, was a blowout. West Coast disposed of the Saints very easily, and as a result, most of their defenders failed to score for our teams. Shannon Hurn went statless for the night, not a single stat recorded. Elliot Yeo top-scored for the Eagles with a 97 thanks to 8 disposals and 11 tackles, while Jack Darling continued his dominance in this format finishing with 95.
Rowan Marshall and Jack Steele marched in for the Saints with scores of 103 and 115, respectively. Popular defensive pick Jake Carlisle could only muster up a score of 30, only tallying up 4 disposals.
The final game of the night was the most exciting one of the night, Dockers hosted the Hawks at home. It was all Hawthorn early on the scoreboard but then Fremantle came from behind to win in a nailbiter.
It was the ruckmen’s night with Rory Lobb the top scorer for Fremantle with 16 hitouts to go with 3 disposals, finishing on 86. Jonathon Ceglar the top scorer for Hawthorn with 8 disposals, 7 marks and a goal to finish on 97.
