The Port Game:

Right When You Need It

Port Adelaide versus Richmond

7.10pm, Saturday 2 July,

Adelaide Oval

Aidan Hammond

 

Port are good this year, they are doing well. They need to win this game to show that they are in it to win it. Richmond have talent and early season showed that talent. They are dropping off lately. If they want to stay in it they need to win this. At the start of the game it is low scoring. It takes something like 10 minutes to score a goal.

 

Port Adelaide and Richmond are being really close, they are doing well and are having a really good game. It is 2 points at quarter time and both coaches will be happy. In the second quarter it is still a very close game, Port have the helpful edge.

 

At half times the Port Adelaide supporters would be going wild in their nerves. The coaches would be saying to go hard and keep it close otherwise the game will slip out of your hands, the game is slipping out of Port Adelaide’s hands.

 

Richmond are doing well and are winning in the 3rd quarter, Richmond are being really good. In the last quarter Richmond win it and it is just a thereabouts game for Port Adelaide, right when they need it they lose it. Are they contenders?

 

PORT ADELAIDE  1.6   5.11   6.14   8.15 (63)

RICHMOND           1.4   3.8   7.10   11.10 (76)

The Walkerville Game:

A Huge Improvement

Walkerville versus Tea Tree Gully

10.40am, Sunday July 2,

Bulkana Oval

Aidan Hammond

 

Last time we drew with Tea Tree Gully, we didn’t play well, If we see ourselves as contenders of the flag, he know that we need a huge improvement. The match starts off with Walkerville all over the first quarter and getting into it hard saying goodbye gullies.

 

At quarter time our coach is really impressed with us, he said that we need to come out firing and we certainly have done that. I was water boy but now I am on the wing. In the second quarter we definitely keep it up we still keep them to zero.

 

Tea Tree Gully are not playing as well as them, they were doing well at the start of the season but they are slipping down. At half time our coach is happy, the oranges are so tasty. In the 3rd quarter we still do really well but they score a couple of points.

 

At the three quarter time break our coach told us that we did really well, if we just do well in this last quarter we will have a 4 quarter effort and a huge improvement. We did so well and that means that we are in a huge improvement, next week we have to verse the table toppers in Payneham, the good old rivalry will come again.

Tea Tree Gully 3.4 22

Walkerville 10.7 67

My Premiership Favourites:

This is a little thing that I used to do when I was younger to see who I would think would win the Premiership. Who I think will win the premiership will change throughout the season. I will do an update every time it changes. I know it is not a very good method and it is not reliable, but here goes.

 

The reigning premiers start off as favourites then whoever beats them are favourites then whoever beats them are favourites and so on. Western Bulldogs start off as favourites and they have only had one team beat them which is Fremantle and that was in Round 3. Fremantle lost against West Coast so that means that West Coast are favourites. West Coast lost to Essendon so that makes Essendon favourites. Essendon lost to Richmond so that means Richmond are favourites. Richmond lost to Sydney and Sydney haven’t lost since then so sydney are favourites.

 

This is a more complicated version of it. So the reigning premiers are the favourites and whoever beats them are favourites. If the favourites have been beaten before the round that they got beaten on then the team with highest winning margin on them and so on.

 

Western Bulldogs start favourites, the only team that has beaten them are Fremantle, Fremantle have lost 2 games. One against Geelong by 42 and the other one against Port by 89. So Port are the favourites. They have lost 2 games, 1 against Crows by 17 and 1 against GWS by 31. Therefore GWS are the favourites. GWS have only lost 1 game and that was against the Crows. The Crows have lost 1 game and that was against North Melbourne North Melbourne have lost 5 games the most against West Coast by 43.

 

West Coast have lost 2 games, the most by 50 against Hawthorn. Hawthorn have lost 5 games, the most by 86 against Gold Coast and Geelong. Gold Coast have lost 4 and Geelong have lost 2. Geelong have lost 2 games, the most against Collingwood by 29. Collingwood have lost 5 games, the most by 29 against Geelong.  Geelong have lost 2 games, the most against Collingwood by 29, we have already been down that path and it would go on a endless loop so the other team they lost to is Gold Coast.

 

Gold Coast have lost by 4 games the most by 102 against GWS. GWS have 2 games, the most by the Crows by 56, we have already been down that path so it will be on an endless loop so the other game they have lost was against Saint Kilda by  23. Saint Kilda have lost 3 games, the most by 38 against Geelong. Geelong have lost 3 games and 2 have been mentioned already, the other game was against Essendon.

 

Essendon have lost 4 games, the most by 65 against Crows. Crows have lost 2 games but we have already been down one of those paths, the one that we haven’t been down through was against Melbourne. Melbourne have lost 4 games, the most by 29 against Geelong. Geelong have lost 4 games and we have been down 3 of lose paths. The other one is against West Coast. West Coast have lost 5 games, we have already been down one of those paths. The most by 61 against Essendon. Essendon have lost 6 games, the most against the Crows but we have already been down that path so second is against Collingwood for 38. Collingwood have lost 7 games, the most by 29 against Carlton. Carlton have lost 7 games, the most by 90 against Port Adelaide.

 

Port Adelaide have lost 5 games, The most by 70 against Essendon. Essendon have lost 6 games. We have been down 2 paths so the 3rd the most losing margin is against Fremantle by 37. Fremantle have lost 6 games the most by Crows by 100. The Crows have lost 3 games the most by North Melbourne but we have already been down that path so the second highest margin is against Melbourne. Melbourne have lost 5 games the most by 29 against Geelong but we have already been down that path so the second highest margin is 14 against North Melbourne.

 

North Melbourne have lost 4 games, the most by 43 against West Coast but we have already been down that path, so the second most is by 42 against Sydney and GWS, the highest score out of them, was Sydney. Sydney have lost 6 games, the most by 42 against GWS. GWS have lost 3 games we have been down to of the paths so the only path left is against Carlton. Carlton have lost 7 games we have already been down 1 of the paths so the second highest margin is against Richmond. Richmond have lost 5  games the most by 76 against  Adelaide.

 

Adelaide have lost 3 games we have been down 2 of those paths so the only path left is against Geelong. Geelong have lost 5 games and we have been down all of those paths except against West Coast. West Coast have lost 5 games we have been down 2 of those paths. The third most is against Richmond.

 

Richmond have lost 5 games, we have already been down one of those paths so the second highest path is against Sydney. Sydney have lost 6 games, we have already been down one of those paths so the second highest is against West Coast.

 

West Coast have lost 5 games and we have already been down 3 of those paths so the fourth highest margin is against GWS by 8. GWS have lost 3 games and we have been down 3 of those paths so GWS are favourites.

 

If Greater Western Sydney and Sydney don’t lose anymore games from here they will stay favourite.
