Alex Forster and Zac Richards were also impressive and will give Senior Coach Jarrod Cotton something to think about when it comes to selection this weekend. Patrick Levicki also had a solid game in defence playing at full back. Levicki had 17 touches which included five marks and a goal. Forward Daniel Johnston was also amongst Norwood’s best performers, with the former Murray Bushranger forward booting three goals.
In what was a different side that faced Sturt in Round One, the reserves controlled the match at times and were efficient in their ball use generating more inside 50’s (45-40) and controlling the ball with more marks than the Panthers (79-54). Youngster Cole Gerloff was also impressive for Norwood. The 19 year old was a work horse for Norwood collecting 20 disposals as well as impacting on the contest with eight tackles and a goal.
