NPL TAS: Round 12 TOTW

With the winners this week scoring 4, 3, 7 and 5 goals respectively, this week’s TOTW is all about sneaking in as many attackers as possible.

GK- Kieran Brown (South Hobart)

Made a huge save with his side 2-1 down that proved crucial, keeping his side in the game allowing the late fightback.

RWB- Jayden Hey (Hobart Zebras)

A powerhouse down the right, Hey was an outlet for his side to knock long diagonals to and stretched the defence.

CB- Danny Cowen (Kingborough Lions)

Started the game at centre half before shifting up front in the second half. Led from the front and got his side back on terms then held his nerve from the penalty spot to secure the win in stoppage time.

CB- Alexander Markaj (Hobart Zebras)

In complete control at the back, Markaj was commanding in the air and his distribution outstanding as he set up plenty of his sides attacks.

LWB- Michael Holden (Devonport)

Scored one of the goals of the season when he cut inside onto his right and unleashed a stunning strike and was a menace to the Rangers defence throughout.

RM- Tyler Fischer (Launceston City)

Continued his scintillating form with a brace against South Hobart, both showing his amazing pace and clinical finishing ability.

CM- Henry Andrews (Devonport)

Given the chance to start in the middle, Andrews made the most of it with a quality performance, knocking the ball around the pitch nicely and supplying his front line.

LM- Phil Kantzos (Kingborough Lions)

Has been quite the find for the Lions with his knack for scoring goals and got them started with a well taken header. His flashy footwork kept the Clarence defence guessing.

ST- Jakub Sklenar (Hobart Zebras)

A hat-trick and an assist for the Czech striker as he hit top form up against his former side, reminding them of just what they are missing out on.

ST- Renato De Vecchi Marins (South Hobart)

A hat-trick for De Vecchi as he showed he is not just about the skills, but also great poachers instincts. Twice he was the quickest to react to rebounds, whilst the third came from slipping in ahead of the goalkeeper.

ST Brayden Mann (Devonport)

Four more for a player at the top of his game right now, there appears to be no stopping the league’s leading marksman who is on course to smash the most goals in a season record.

Coach- Ken Morton (South Hobart)

It was his substitutions that swung the game and the decision to inject Kemp and Walter into the contest loom as one of the defining moments of the season.
