The Saturday that was.  Was it cold?  Was it wet?  Was it snowing? Were the playing conditions atrocious?  One million times yes and probably the worst day I can remember at a game.  The best part was given the weather we enjoyed quite a good crowd. Our Under 18’s were the first to brave the elements and like so many others for the day they were simply stuck in the mud. Everything about the game was challenging but to their credit the fought on whilst praying for a warm shower.
Hobart        1.0    1.0     1.0         1.0    (6)
Claremont   2.4   4.11  10.12   15.17 (107)
Goals: Seb Godrey
Best Players: Harry Fish, Zane Awde, James Granfield, Jaydon Aram, Rubin Hay, Leif Anderson.

The Reserves were a formidable outfit and at every break still looked as though they would make a real challenge and I would say the scoreboard did not reflect the way the game was played and how competitive we were.  It was great to see Mark Nichols back and he showed what a difference he can make to a team and was ably helped by Caley Gough and James McGee.
Hobart          0.1     0.1     0.1     0.1      (1)
Claremont    2.6     4.8     6.9     7.11   (53)

Best players: Beau Bennett, Caley Gough, Josh Young, Jacob Young, James McGee, Danny Bennett.

The Senior game was well described by ‘the Mercury’ with “Hobart is frozen in finals limbo after Claremont overcame the elements to topple the Tigers at the TCA.”  Our side did not handle the elements at all well compared to Claremont who the coach stated “I thought our four quarter performance was the best we’ve put in for the year in terms of effort and intensity”

Hobart          0.0    0.2    2.5    2.5    (17)
Claremont    3.4    7.6    9.9    13.10 (88)

Goals:  Luke Sullivan,  Shane Bradford.
Best Players: Alex Stephens,  Jacob Campbell, Stuart Paterson, Brenton Allie, Luke Sullivan,  Mark Young.
