Cats enjoy a day in the sun – The Cattery – Unofficial Geelong Cats Website

Geelong Cats v Port Adelaide Power, AFL 2022 Round 10 Ben Jensen In front of a packed GMHBA stadium in the sun, Geelong beat Port Adelaide, after a solid challenge from Power in the first half. Prior to the first rebound, the Cats lost ruckman Rhys Stanley and had no ready replacement, with Mark Blicavs taking on most of the ruck duties. Quinton Narkle was also a late change, with him and Stanley replaced by Francis Evans and last week’s replacement Cooper Stephens.

The inaccurate Cats struggled to defeat an accurate Power team in the second quarter, trailing at halftime. But a five-to-one third quarter, including a crowd-pleasing barrel after Jeremy Cameron’s siren (see below) made it difficult for the Power in the final quarter. At the final siren, the Cats led by 35 points, a margin that may have been predicted before the game but looked questionable even in the third quarter.

About the Author

Ben Jensen

THE CATTERY began as a labor of love, and remained, by creator and lead contributor Ben Jensen in mid-season 2002. His goal was to create the best “unofficial” Geelong Football Club site on the net. Consultant by day and webmaster by night, he created his first website in 1996 while studying engineering and science at Deakin University in Geelong. After a very brief stint (by design!) creating online operations manuals for water installations, the Chartered Engineer quickly decided it was time he combined his love of Cats with his skills and “trying” to do what he hoped for. would be one of the best unofficial sites in Geelong. Ben doesn’t remember ever supporting the mighty Cats, let alone when he started pitching for the team wearing the blue and white hoops. Virtually all of Ben’s family supports Geelong; even cousins ​​in Sydney. Sadly, he married into a mixed family of Carlton and Essendon fans, but he retains first and last rights to any offspring. One of his earliest memories is of his father explaining the rules of the game by drawing a large oval football pitch and drawing the positions in each spot, with “JACKO” in front. The rest of those early memories revolve around Gary Ablett Senior, Billy Brownless (his very first favorite official player) and Garry ‘Buddha’ Hocking. Having lived elsewhere in Victoria and overseas, Ben has remained proud of his Geelong roots and never misses an opportunity to show his allegiance, and particularly enjoys strolling from the top of Collins Street on a Monday morning after a victory wearing a tie Geelong and maybe even a jacket and scarf on special occasions. I live again in Geelong after fifteen years of absence. Ben would love to hear your comments, suggestions and hopefully contributions to The Cattery.
