Prospect kicks clear

 THE Prospect Hawks dominated the second half of their NTFA division 2 contest against Lilydale at Prospect yesterday to record an impressive 74-point victory in their Good Friday clash.

The Hawks led all day and kicked 10 goals to two after half-time to post a 21.16 (142) to 8.20 (68) win, as inaccurate kicking plagued the Demons.

Will Stoltenberg finished with five goals and Mason Keane four to be the Hawks' best forwards while Billy Tuckerman and Andrew McLean booted two each for Lilydale.

``We were out to get the four points on the board and were reasonably happy with the outcome,'' Prospect coach Danny Hall said.

``We gave them a bit of more of a run through the midfield than we should of and a bit more space to run around in in the first half.

``But we tightened that up in the second half and took that space away from them.''

Hall said he was pleased with the way his young side took the game on and said they were learning more about how to play with each other with every game.

``We attacked the game and were up and about pretty early and I threw a few guys into different positions and they took the challenge on,'' he said.

Jake Goodyer was the best on ground for the Hawks with his efforts on a wing and Tim Woolley was hard at it in and under through the midfield.

``We put the onus on Will Stoltenberg and he done the job for us up forward and pushed up and kicked five in the end.

``We ended up having 11 individual goalkickers so I was happy with the way we spread it around,'' Hall said.

``It was a really good team effort and I am happy with the young brigade that is coming through and the guys who have pushed up from the juniors at Prospect and are starting to develop into good footballers.''

Tom Arnold was Lilydale's best player along with the veteran McLean.
