Dockers Stall in Second Half, fall to Columbus

The Cincinnati Dockers Australian Rules Football Club opened the festivities of the USA vs. Canada international matches at Mason Sports Park on August 1st, but were not able hold back their in-state rivals, the Columbus Jackaroos, for all 40 minutes as Dockers fell 42-14.

The Dockers were immediately set back when player/coach Kyle Strenski was unavailable to play in this condensed game, as he would play for the USA reserve squad in their match later that day. Despite this setback, the Dockers showed grit and toughness in the first half, as they matched the Jackaroos in scoring shots, with each side making 4 each. The Dockers proved to be more accurate, scoring 2 goals and 2 behinds for 14 points, against Columbus 1 goal and 3 behinds for 9 points.

The second half was a much different story, as the Jackaroos denied the Dockers a single point. Cincinnati were able to win plenty of center rucks, but Columbus were better able to pick the ball out from those contests, and not allow the Dockers to advance the ball into their forward line, forcing the defense to work overtime in that period. Columbus 33 unanswered points were more than enough to put away the Dockers on this afternoon. The final score had Cincinnati with 2 goals and 2 behinds for 14 points to Columbus 6 goals and 6 behinds for 42 points.

Cincinnati Dockers Triumph in Columbus

The Cincinnati Dockers Australian Rules Football Club was able to endure both Mother Nature and the Columbus Jackaroos youth and speed en route to a victory in Ohio’s capital city, as the Dockers defeated the Jackaroos 45-19 last Saturday afternoon at Tuttle Park in Columbus, OH.

Due to travel issues from both visiting teams, the initially scheduled 3-team tournament was changed to one standard 4 20-minute quarter match, with the Milwaukee players that made the trip joining the Dockers to challenge the hosting Columbus Jackaroos. Making things more interesting was Mother Natures presence in the form of heavy rain. However, not even this perfect storm of events could stop the Dockers.
