ROUND 5 – Saturday 11th May – Match Report
AJAX vs Williamstown
It was a nice sunny start to the day at Albert Park with the Jackas hoping for a big win against top placed Williamstown, however there were no goals in the first 17 mins, with the game very even and AJAX competing hard. Nick Lewis & Charlie Hamilton started well, however, the moment of the quarter was a goal of the season from Kane Nissenbaum at the 20 minute mark with a left foot snap from the boundary. Unfortunately, this was followed by a great goal at the 26 minute mark from a set shot for the visitors, putting them up by 2 points at the first break.
AJAX came out firing in the second quarter, with clean hands from second gamer Elliot Debinski opening Brad Caplan up to slot a beauty from the boundary line. An early goal was followed by a Roi Abraham set shot straight through the middle to put the Jackas back in front. Play of the day was done by young gun Aaron Bryer, who took 4 bounces on the wing before spotting up Stuey Fayman for a nerve settling goal. With the Jackas flying, Charlie Hamilton snapped from 30m out for our 5th of the day and it just didn’t stop there with a Stuey Fayman set shot to put us up by 19 points approaching half time.
The third quarter started slowly for the Jackas with three early goals to the visitors, narrowing our lead to just the 1 point, calling for a lift desperately. Hoping for a much needed siren to go, the visitors kicked a big last minute goal to take a 4 point lead heading into the last quarter. The last quarter started strong with much attacking from the Jackas in the last, including Nico Cohen, who broke a tackle on the boundary line and slotted one of the goals of the day on the right to put the Jackas up by 3 points. Straight after, Stuey Fayman continued his great game with a set shot goal from 20m out in front to give the Jackas a steady 9 point lead. However, after two quick ones from the Jackas, the visitors got one back to tighten the score to just 3 points midway through the 4th quarter. It was a neck and neck battle, until Williamstown kicked a late one to take the lead and hold on to win a tight affair. Great game and effort by the Jackas, hopefully it’s a bounce back victory next week when we travel to Hampton to take on the Hampton Rovers.
