Jim Park Voting 2023 1st Semi Final

Voting is as usual: you have 15 votes to award pretty much as you will, with the following provisos:
[1] 15 votes in total, no more, no less.
[2] No more than 10 votes for any one player (even Sam Walsh or Patrick Cripps)
[3] Three players at least must get a mention.
[4] A grade for the game, A+ (what I want to see) to F-.
Live Long and Prosper!

I won't get to sleep for at least another hour yet, so I'll start off proceedings.
1st Semi Final      Carlton vs Melbourne
Another heart-stopper and the perfect result. But I can’t give the team an A, not even for a win like this. We made far too many errors at crucial moments and wasted a lot of Inside 50’s.
Team:   B+
Finding a way to win from where we were was special.

Votes:
[3]   Sam Walsh
[2]   Patrick Cripps
[2]   Jacob Weitering
[1.5]   Tom de Koning
[1.5]   Nic Newman
[1]   Adam Saad
[1]   Sam Docherty
[0.5]   Mitch McGovern
[0.5]   Jesse Motlop
[0.5]   Blake Acres
[0.5]   Lachie Fogarty
[0.5]   George Hewett
[0.5]   Adam Cerra

Explanations:
[3]   Sam Walsh:      34 possessions, 2 brilliant goals, 6 marks, 8 tackles and 3 clearances says it all: the sort of game that makes a difference.
[2]   Patrick Cripps:      27 possessions, 9 clearances, 6 tackles and some really good moments describes the game from a man who it mattered to.
[2]   Jacob Weitering:   Head knock or not, Weitering dominated his position, even if he didn’t hold some he usually marks. His ability to starve the Melburne key forwards was crucial.
[1.5]   Tom de Koning:   Tom produced in some big moments. He took only 4 marks, but each of those was crucial, as were his goals and clearances.
[1.5]   Nic Newman:      A few uncharacteristic mistakes, but a very solid game on defence at 30 possessions again.
[1]   Adam Saad:      Really did a job on his opponents.
[1]   Sam Docherty:   Came back after a dislocated shoulder and was crucial at important times.
[0.5]   Mitch McGovern:   20 possessions and a solid job in defence.
[0.5]   Jesse Motlop:      Not a lot of ball, but his goals were crucial.
[0.5]   Blake Acres:      Down for him with only 17 possessions and was targeted by the Melbourne players, but still managed to pop up at do crucial things when he was needed.
[0.5]   Lachie Fogarty:   Not enough scoring, but still doing very good things in the forward line.
[0.5]   George Hewett:   20 possessions; a solid game.
[0.5]   Adam Cerra:      Faded out of the game, but what he did was excellent.

Honourable Mentions:
Brodie Kemp:      Not his best game, but still doing nice things and hold down a critical post.
Matthew Kennedy:   Not really a key forward, but he worked hard and did some nice things.
Caleb Marchbank:   What could have been: got to a lot of contests but didn’t hold his marks. His decision making was much better tonight.
Marc Pittonet:      Lion-hearted in the ruck. Worked hard and kept Gawn under control mostly.
Oliver Hollands:   4 possessions in the last quarter, and 1 kick smothered poorly, but his run and smart disposal was excellent in that final flurry.
Alex Cincotta:      Not huge possessions, but really did a solid negative job.
Live Long and Prosper!

2: TDK...one of his best games imo, goals, speccy's and important moments.
1: Docherty....soldiered on with a bung shoulder and a credit to the jumper and himself as always.
1: Cripps..led well and was humble in victory, very impressive character.
1: Pittonet...great job dogging Gawn all game
1: McGovern...copped a few hits like Acres but got up and helped Weitering defend well when he had to.
