ROUND 5 – Saturday 11th May – Match Report

AJAX vs Williamstown

b2ap3_thumbnail_seniors_20190512-232849_1.png

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.

AJAX next take on Hampton Rovers at Boss James Reserve Hampton on May 18 at 2:00PM.

ROUND 4 – Saturday 4th May – Match Report

b2ap3_thumbnail_round-4-pic.png

Round 4 saw AJAX travel to face a 2nd placed Old Mentonians out at Keysborough. After last week’s loss the boys looked to get back in the winners column and kickstart their season. 

In a scrappy affair it took 12 minutes for the Jackas to draw blood with Jake Lew slotting the first goal from 45 metres out. Richie Simon and Jeremy Forbes were solid in defence making sure the opposition forwards were starved of opportunities. Nico Cohen also started well getting involved in some nice rebound 50s that resulted in set shots but unfortunately the boys weren’t able to convert. Some unlucky calls in our defensive 50 saw Old Mentone grab 2 goals late in the first as AJAX went into the break down 15 to 9. 

The second term saw the home team get a run on the Jackas kicking 5 goals to 1. Again, some unlucky calls and some well rewarded forward pressure saw 4 of their 5 goals scored from free kicks. Brent Shapiro came off after a heavy knock which forced Lew to go into the ruck. AJAX managed to gather the possession, but poor forward entries made it tough for the boys to get anything going. The last 5 minutes of the quarter saw the boys make better use of the footy as Aaron Bryer hit Lew on a lead putting through his second. Half time saw the Jackas down 49 to 16. 

With the message to trust their forwards the boys came out hard able to match the opposition in the middle and garnered more scoring opportunities. Charles Hamilton was effective with his skills and Kane Nissenbaum worked himself into the game after a long stint on the sidelines. As the boys were able to even the contest they went into the three quarter break down 68-32.

The last quarter saw the Jackas take better care with their skills and win the quarter by a point as the rain started to fall. More forward entries led to an Alex Wollan goal and a very close snap from Olly Hoffman. The backline was able to exit effectively as the overuse of handballs was overturned. As the final siren sounded the boys had matched Mentone in the second half losing it by 2 but ended up going down 77-42.

AJAX next take on Williamstown at Gary Smorgon Oval on May 11 at 2:00PM.

This week the Jackettes played Glen Eira away, in a battle of the two undefeated teams. In torrid conditions the Jackettes were a goal down at the quarter time break. With the rain coming down and wind blowing across the ground, scoring was very difficult and whilst we had alot of the play we just came up short and lost by 7 points. Dan Abraham continued her fine form with solid contributions from I Burstin, Marget, Gabriel, Worth and I Burstin.

The Jackettes are looking to bounce back next week when they play the MCC ladies side.

Next the Jackettes are home against MCC at Lindsay Hassett Oval at 11:00 AM on May 11.

ROUND 3 – Saturday 27th April – Match Report
Wasteful AJAX fall short at the last minute

AJAX’s first home game of the year didn’t go as planned against visitors Mazenod Football Club. It was AJAX’s inaccuracy that was the tale of the day, kicking 22 behinds, proving to be costly at the final siren. With veteran Jake Lew and debutant Elliot Debinski brought into the side, the stage was set for a maiden home game win of 2019. It was Eugene Routman who kick started the day and got AJAX on the board with two first quarter goals, including a slick tap from Dov Paltiel and Routman bending it from the pocket. Debutant Debinski was able to get his hands on the ball early easing his transition to senior football. AJAX kicking 2.9 in the first quarter to take a 21-18 lead.

The second term saw a courageous mark from Brandon Joel who ran back with the flight with his eyes set on the ball and nothing else. AJAX’s play of the day began where Brandon Joel spotted up Olly Hoffman on the half forward flank who fed it to Hamilton, who neatly delivered the ball to Alex Wollan, finishing truly and providing AJAX with a bit of momentum to start the second quarter. It was Wollan again who kicked back-to-back goals after selling a bit of candy and slotting it straight through the middle. AJAX led Mazenod at the half, 5.14 to 4.3, with their inaccuracy unfortunately hurting the home-side. Inside the rooms at the half, Adams stressed the importance of “matching their two-way running in order to win the game”.

A complete shift in momentum was displayed as Mazenod came out strong in the second half. With majority of the third quarter being played out in Mazenod’s half of the ground, AJAX were kept goalless which hurt the home side as they were now trailing Mazenod at the final break. Mazenond were too strong in the third quarter kicking 6.6, taking a handy 24-point lead into the 4th. Brandon Joel was moved into the forward line to try and spark a comeback, kicking the first of the quarter, providing a bit of life into what could be late surge for the Jackas. The Jackas were given every opportunity to get back into the game with crucial set shots missed. It was Joel’s move to the forward line which resulted in 3 last quarter goals. Jake Lew’s last second goal right on the 50 was too little, too late for the Jackas, falling short by just one point at the final siren.

Skipper Nick Lewis was solid all day, finishing with 35 disposals and a whopping 16 tackles, as Charlie Hamilton (31 disposals) and Brad Caplan (30 disposals) backed up their performance, maintaining their strong start to the season.

Speaking with the debutant, Debinski, he highlighted that the jump from thirds football to senior football was “a lot quicker, the quality of the game was a big jump to what [he] is used to.” Senior footballer Stuart Fayman made note that “we had the opportunities to put the game to bed, but we failed to capitalise which obviously cost us at the end of the day.” AJAX’s 9.22 to Mazenod’s 11.11 wasn’t enough to snatch their first home game win of the year. AJAX now shift their attention to Old Mentonians as they try get back on the winners list and drive for a top 4 position.

AJAX take on Old Mentonians at Keysborough Playing Fields on May 4 at 2:00PM.

The Jackettes started to show their dominance in the second quarter and took a handy 4 goal lead into half time. Abraham led from the front and was well supported by a strong midfield of Marget, Worth, Fleiszig and Smart. With Grek returning from injury she helped the backline restrict Albert Park to one point for the day .The Jackettes never stopped running and finished off strong 8 goal winners.

ROUND 2 – Saturday 13th April – Match Report

Jackas hold off Old Ivanhoe for first win

b2ap3_thumbnail_ROUND-2---iMAGE-1.png

 

AJAX are officially on the board in Premier C for 2019, downing Old Ivanhoe Grammarians by 31 points in a fantastic performance at Chelsworth Park. The Jackas led at every change and despite continuous challenges from the home-side, AJAX was able to withstand every charge to run away convincing winners. With notable absentees Kane Nissenbaum, Jake Lew and Corey Zielinksi unable to play, the Jackas needed some of their big guns to set the tone early, and Charlie Hamilton responded with an inspirational first quarter for the visitors and maintained his strong contribution all day.

Clever goals from the pocket in the opening term from Alex Wollan and Jono Goldberg saw AJAX take 10-13 lead into the first change after a free flowing opening quarter. AJAX continued their smooth transition footy in the second term with Brad Caplan maintaining his strong performance with an early goal.  Precise foot skills and daring ball movement by Krongold and Lewis then led to a huge contested grab by Cam Nankin, who converted from the pocket to give the Jackas a nine-point advantage. Right before the half-time siren, a team-lifting play by second-gamer Benji Krongold as the youngster converted his first major with a kick on the run from long-range, and his teammates quickly got around him as AJAX took a 42-27 lead into half-time.

Old Ivanhoe closed the gap to just two points following two early goals to open the second-half, before youngster Aaron Bryer snuck forward to mark and convert his first senior major after converting from 30 metres out, giving AJAX some breathing room. Eugene Routman then kicked a classy goal from the pocket on his right foot to continue the strong response from the Jackas, before a huge late goal from Nicholas Cohen from distance, firmly asserted the momentum AJAX’s way; as they took 62-41 lead into the final change. Cameron Nankin continued his fine afternoon with some classy pieces of play to begin the 4th, but after Old Ivanhoe reduced the margin to just six points with a few quick goals, AJAX was struggling to withstand a strong challenge, with inaccurate kicking from the home-side costing them the advantage on the scoreboard. With Old Ivanhoe pressing hard, Stuart Fayman steadied the ship as he goaled after marking out the back to give AJAX some much-needed breathing space. Following a 50 metre penalty, Eugene Routman sealed the game for the Jackas from point-blank range to extend their lead to 24 points.

A stirring final quarter from AJAX saw them withstand a strong challenge from Old Ivanhoe, running away winners 93-61.

Charlie Hamilton was outstanding for the Jackas with 34 disposals and 6 tackles, with his silky skills and smarts a difference-maker. Skipper Nick Lewis led from the front once again with 34 disposals and 11 tackles, as Benji Krongold (22 disposals) and Brad Caplan (29 disposals and 1 goal) were also prominent through the midfield. Justin Berkowitz enjoyed a fantastic game in defence, with his intercept ability along with his run and carry propelling several AJAX attacks, as Cam Nankin had several important touches.

In their next encounter, AJAX will attempt to make it consecutive wins as they return home to play Mazenod at Gary Smorgon Oval on April 27 at 2:00 PM.

The Jackettes were looking to make it 2 from 2 playing away against De La Salle. Ajax scored the only goal in the first quarter and took a small lead into quarter time. The Jackettes stepped up the pressure in the 2nd quarter and continually harrassed their opponents. The game opened up in the 2nd half and the Jackettes stormed home for a great win.
