Thirds down Carey in Sunday thriller

Only two Ajax teams took to the field on the weekend as the Seniors and Reserves made the most of the mid-season break.

The Thirds (Blacks) recorded a memorable win after they erased an 11-point deficit in the dying minutes to snatch victory in their 11.14 (80) to Old Carey 11.13 (79) match at Carey Sports Complex on Sunday.

The Jackas held onto an eight-point lead at quarter time after getting out of the blocks early, only to concede two late goals.

It was a tightly contested second term with neither team able to kick away to a substantial lead. Skipper Zev Aron and agile big man Daniel Wein were prime movers forward of centre for the Jackas in the first half.

Only one point separated both teams at the main break as the game delicately hung in the balance.

With more than half the team observing a religious fast day, naturally, player’s energy and effort was going to taper off in the second half.

Old Carey piled on consecutive goals and threatened to blow the Jackas away but the visitors did well to only trail by nine points at the final change.

Ruckman Ollie Greenberg began to get on top in the middle early in the fourth quarter, however play around the ground quickly turned into an ugly scrap as both teams tried desperately to effectively forge forward.

 The Jackas were fortunate to still be in the hunt as the home side failed to convert a number of scoring opportunities. With five minutes remaining Ajax required two goals. Star on baller Dov Paltiel hit the scoreboard courtesy of an assist from Wein and the Jackas’ sensed an unlikely comeback.

The next clearance went Ajax’s way as a Chaim Wellis-Stosser pass inside fifty missed its intended target, but fortuitously fell into Daniel Wein’s lap, 35 meters out directly in front.

Wein collected himself, put boot to ball and unconvincingly snuck it in, handing Ajax a one-point lead with under two minutes to go.

The Jackas held firm in the dying stages and as the siren sounded, jubilant scenes swept across the ground. The win has the thirds only marginal percentage outside the top four.

Meanwhile Ajax’s women’s team the Jackettes suffered a rude awakening when they copped a 2.1 (13) to 18.14 (122) belting against Gippsland, who beat the girls by over 100 points for the second consecutive game.

Danielle Shmerling kicked both of the Jackettes’ goals while Julia ‘Hotties’ Caplan was the clear best on ground in the deflating result.
