Match Review

After losing the number one ruck mantle to Tom De Koning, Marc Pittonet staked his claim for a recall with a powerful 25-disposal, 11-clearance and one-goal game in Carlton's loss to North Melbourne on Friday. Plenty of other Blues also performed as they try to find a way back into the strong senior lineup. Brodie Kemp kicked a goal to go with his 19 disposals and eight marks, Alex Cincotta had 22 touches and six clearances, while the yet-to-debut Jaxon Binns continued his habit of racking up possessions with 22. Lachlan Cowan had the ball 23 times, key defender Lewis Young finished with 16 disposals, and draftee Billy Wilson found the ball 18 times. Other Blues in action included Harry Lemmey (11 disposals, six marks), Ashton Moir (12 disposals, one goal), Hudson O'Keeffe (seven disposals, nine hitouts), Rob Monahan (one goal) and Dom Akuei (seven disposals).

Pittonet, Cincotta impress in narrow loss

A summary of the Carlton Reserves' opening match of the 2024 season. - By Cristian Filippo, Carlton Media.

A spirited second-half comeback fell short for the Carlton Reserves, who succumbed by 16 points in their opening clash of the VFL season against North Melbourne. After being held at an arm’s length by the Roos throughout the first half, the Blues stormed out of the blocks after the main break, even hitting the front in the last quarter. However, a late flurry by the home side ensured it wasn’t to be, with North Melbourne coming away with a 13.12 (90) to 10.14 (74) victory.

On a day where the Blues had seven Club debutants, there were positive signs by all three of the Blues’ new AFL recruits in Ashton Moir, Rob Monahan and Billy Wilson. With so many new faces, the Blues took a while to get going, unable to generate any meaningful ball movement from the back half despite faring strongly in the contested possession stakes. North Melbourne dominated the Sherrin from an uncontested point of view, ending the day with +36 marks despite Carlton's clearance dominance. Carlton could only muster three goals in the first half, with Marc Pittonet producing one of those in the first quarter. Amongst a young side, the ruckman provided excellent leadership over all four quarters in a best-on-ground performance for the Blues, on a day where he contributed 25 disposals, 19 hitouts and 12 clearances in addition to that first-quarter major. One player who also stood up for the Blues was Alex Cincotta, who was thrust into the midfield to provide a stronger body around the ball. Looking to provide his trademark run and carry all day, Alex Cincotta ended with 25 disposals and six clearances to go with five tackles. The Blues needed a response in the second half, and someone who kickstarted that was Brodie Kemp (19 disposals, eight marks). Playing down back for the first half, Brodie Kemp was swung into attack to provide an aerial threat at the beginning of the third quarter. It yielded almost immediate results, with Brodie Kemp taking a strong contested mark before snapping a goal a few minutes later to give the Blues some energy and a way back into the game. After North Melbourne looked to settle to respond to Carlton’s early flurry, the Blues’ debutants all stood up in a matter of minutes. VFL first-gamer Will White got on the end of his first major, and when Ashton Moir and Rob Monahan both showed their quality in front of goal in quick succession, Carlton was suddenly within a kick at the final break.

The Blues’ momentum continued in the final term, with Zavier Maher - playing his first game in a year, after an ACL injury in Round 1 last season - putting the Blues in front with a running goal from 50. And when Lefroy kicked his third, the Blues suddenly had a handy seven-point buffer. But a late charge from North Melbourne saw the home side kick the last four of the game, with Carlton chasing the result in the final minutes. From a VFL perspective, Lefroy was a clear standout, while Luke Nelson (18 disposals, one goal) and Tom Phillips (19 disposals) - who both arrived from other VFL clubs in the off-season - performed strongly in their first appearances for Carlton. The Blues have another bye in the VFL next weekend, with their next game coming at IKON Park in a fortnight against Collingwood.

One-point loss for Carlton Reserves

A summary of all the action from Round 3 VFL action. - By Hannah Tomasoni.

The Carlton Reserves were on the receiving end of a one-point defeat to Collingwood. In a game similar to Carlton’s AFL clash with Adelaide, neither side had breathing room in a tightly contested game which saw the Pies prevail 12.11 (83) to 12.10 (82). Second-year Blues Lachlan Cowan (22 disposals) and Hudson O'Keeffe (33 hitouts, 10 clearances) were both influential, while VFL-listed debutants Bailey Lambert (three goals) and Kristian Ferronato (16 disposals) impressed in their first games for the Blues.

Quarter one
As Carlton embarked on its second game back for the season after two byes inside three weeks, the Blues came through with a good start to the quarter. Back-and-forth football at Ikon Park saw Collingwood take early possession of the ball for most of the first quarter, as Lachlan Cowan and Lewis Young showed great defensive prowess throughout the quarter to draw the ball and stop the Pies in their forward half. In his first game for the season, Liam McMahon registered the first goal for the Blues in the first 10 minutes of the quarter. Collingwood continued to bring the pressure throughout, before in the second half of the quarter, second-gamer Will White drew not only a free kick but also a 50-metre penalty to close the gap back to a point. However, the Pies quickly scurried back with a goal, seeing the Blues down by five points at quarter time.

Quarter two
The up-and-down nature of the game continued in the second term, with both teams trading goals and lead changes in an arm wrestle at IKON Park. Only one goal was kicked in the last 20 minutes of the quarter, as White kicked Carlton’s second consecutive goal to see the Blues lead by five as the first half drew to a close. Hudson O'Keeffe provided plenty of grunt work as the main ruckman while Jaxon Binns was busy on the wing, leading disposals with 14 for the first half while also converting a second-quarter goal. Carlton were down a man when Billy Wilson came from the ground and didn’t return following a head knock.

Quarter three
Although the Blues got their hands on the ball from the centre bounce, a slow start to the third quarte saw the Pies gain possession and level up the scores. An intercept mark from Lewis Young saw the Blues win the ball back and set up a chain through the middle of the field, leading to the first goal of the quarter through Carlton Reserves debutant Bailey Lambert. The Blues’ backline took another hit when Dom Akuei (concussion) played no further part. Lachlan Cowan continued his busy performance in defence, while Heath Ramshaw and Lachie Young produced intercept marks to halt the Pies. Young’s mark allowed Liam McMahon a chance for his third of the game, before Ned Cahill came out strong, scoring the next two goals for the Blues to see his side lead by one point at the final change.

Quarter four
The final quarter of the game saw continuous back-to-back contests between the Pies and the Blues. However, strong passages of play for the Pies ended in the first three goals of the quarter, with the Blues all of a sudden trailing by 16 points after 12 minutes. In need of a spark, the next few minutes saw Lambert shine, recording back-to-back goals to bring the Blues back in it. Not long after, a goal from Luke Nelson saw the Blues back in front by the narrowest of margins. The Pies dominated territory (59-44 inside 50s), locking the ball in their forward half as they looked to snatch back the lead, doing so with consecutive behinds. Heath Ramshaw and Archie Stevens continued to fight to try and win the ball back from repeat stoppages in the final minutes, but as the siren sounded at the end of the game, the Pies came away winning by one point.
