NPL TAS: Round 6 TOTW

Jamie Richardson

GK- Kieran Brown (South Hobart)

Kept his side in the game in the first half with six saves including a couple at full extension. Denied Gurson on 4 separate occasions and gave his side the chance that they would go on to seize.

RB- Pat Lanau-Atkinson (Northern Rangers)

Looked vulnerable early in his match up with Baker but fought back wonderfully to curtail his influence as well as getting forward and putting in a number of dangerous crosses.

CB- Lucas Hill (Olympia) 

Dropped back into defence and it proved a clever move as Hill put in a wonderful performance, locking down on the dangerous De Vecchi Marins and keeping things tight at the back.

CB- Oscar Thomas (South Hobart)

South were beaten in the midfield and under pressure for large portions of the match but hung in there with Thomas leading the way at the back and keeping things tight, played the ball that lead to the leveler.

CB- Odaine Demar (Clarence United)

Two weeks in a row that Demar has now stood out for his powerful work in defence and its no surprise Clarence have played their best 2 games in that period. Covers the ground so well and anticipates the play expertly.

LB- Liam Scott (Launceston City)

Cheating here slotting him at full back, but that’s where his supposed best spot is. Not that you could tell after watching him ball out in central defence once again. Has been a rock at the back for his side.

CM- Daniel Syson (Launceston City)

Syson played like a man with a point to prove against his old side, flying about the pitch and driving his team forwards. Supplied the free kicks that led to 2 goals and played the pass to spring Fischer for the opener.

CM- Jeremy Price (Clarence)

Has moved into the middle after starring at full back last season and shown his versatility. Price was rugged in central midfield, disrupting and winning the ball for his side.

LW- Beau Blizzard (Devonport Strikers)

Set up the opening goal with a pass to play in Holden before scoring a wonderful goal himself with a powerfully hit effort from the edge of the area.

RW- William Humphrey (Northern Rangers)

His cross into a strong wind for the games lone was pure class that will go down as one of the assists of the season and he was lively in attack, creating some quality scoring chances.

ST- Tyler Fischer (Launceston City)

Two goals upon his return to Valley Road marked a successful return for Fischer. His first from raw acceleration and his second showing a sharp turn in the box.

Coach- Jez Kenth (Launceston City)

One of the most tactically astute coaches going around, Kenth has his side playing smart football and to march into Valley Road and take 3 points is an impressive feat.
