Hawthorn back to its best and the eight

Saturday June 12, 2010 by  

Hawthorn 19.10 (124) def. Adelaide 11.11 (77)

Hawthorn was at its attacking best against Adelaide on Saturday with a 47-point victory in Launceston, courtesy of some good performances from its star players.

The best was vice captain Luke Hodge who played well in various positions all over the ground, especially when his team needed him the most. He finished with 32 possessions and three goals; the first two coming as Adelaide closed in on the Hawks’ lead.

The Crows came within three goals of Hawthorn a few times but never really looked like taking the lead. Read more

Tigers take early hold of spoon

Sunday May 9, 2010 by

by Shana Morgan – What was a tough, competitive match for three quarters turned into a big win for Adelaide as it recorded its first win of the season with a 50-point thumping of the Tigers.

The game was a battle of the skill of the Crows against the determination of Richmond, which created an entertaining contest, albeit one without the brilliance some of the higher-ranked teams can provide.

In the first three quarters neither team could keep any momentum going as the lead changed back and forth. The margin at each of the breaks was less than 10 points. Read more

The Dogs embarrass the winless Crows

Friday April 23, 2010 by  

The Adelaide Crows woes continue after a demoralizing 49-point loss to the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium on Friday night.

In front of a modest crowd of 26,884 people the Crows were unable to seriously challenge their more favored opponents and remain without a win in the 2010 home and away season.

Bouncing back after a disappointing loss to Brisbane last weekend the Bulldogs reveled in their home turf advantage, and in manipulating the Crows haphazard and ineffective game plan they returned back to the winners list with a comfortable 18.13 (121) to 10.12 (72) victory. Read more
