All tied up, Nomads women scratch up a draw against Suns

July 19th, 2021

The weekend had the Nomad women hit the road to make the journey to the distant Northern outpost of Moree after a venue change. It was shaping up to be a typical miserable winters day at Bellevue (the spiritual home of football in Armidale), so Moree seemed like a tropical paradise in comparison. On the back of a tough loss the previous week we were looking for a scalp against the Suns. Travelling short on numbers with big outs, punters wouldn’t have listed us as favourites. We knew it could be a tough day in the office, but we back each other, and we back our system to get the job done. After a slow start we looked like we’d run away with a steal. The Suns were determined not to concede, and a draw ensued. The final score being 4.2.26 to 3.8.26.

Nomads win in a tight match in Modra’s 150th game

July 19th, 2021

In David Richard’s 150th game, the Nomads managed to sneak over the line with a ten-point win against a resurgent Roos side who kicked 5 goals in the last quarter to almost run over the Nomads. The Nomads had been comfortably in the lead, with an 8 goal second quarter, putting them in front at half time. It was nail bitingly close (especially for the spectators) and it was only a snap from forty metres out from Barker.Clarence.dot.coach.dot.com (CBDCDC) in the last minute that put the result beyond doubt. It was a really good game of quality fast-running football. For the Nomads Patrick Sharp and the irrepressible Noah Connick kicked 5 goals apiece, while the aforementioned CBDCDC chimed in with 3 goals. The Cisco Kid, Charlie Paine, was in the thick of the action taking strong marks and played a crucial role in the final stages of the game with his game-sense. New boy Fraser Menzies showed what he is capable of, with match-winning form in the midfield. Conor Nest was brilliant in the background and Modra was at his usual will’o’the’wisp best up forward and in the middle. Final scores were Nomads 15.7.97 to the Roos 13.9.87.

Nomads women dealt a narrow loss by a resurgent Roos

July 12th, 2021

Football was again being played at the spiritual home of football in Armidale, Bellevue oval-albeit under the usual guise of COVID19 precautions. Our girls had been defeated convincingly the previous week by the Gunnedah Poochettes and so looked to make amends against the Roos. The Roos had bested us in our last two encounters by less than two goals. We made it our mantra that we wouldn’t lose this week. The only option is a win. We had the strongest team that we’d put up all year that even consisted of a bench (Bench: noun, substitute players, the act of having substitute players). Although in a heartbreaking turn of events, the football gods had other plans and we went down 2.3.15 to 3.5.23.
