MT BURR MAKE IT THREE ON THE TROT
By Terry Willoughby, September 18, 2017
Hatherleigh may have been favourites but that was of little consequence to the finals hardened and experienced Mt Burr. Hatherleigh made a positive start and led early with Wight goaling and Watson defending well to keep the Mt Burr forwards under tight control. The Eagles led by 13 points at quarter time and when Buckley goaled immediately in the second quarter Hatherleigh supporters were up and about, but the Mozzies quickly found their form with ruckman Henry Crauford dominating the stoppages and around the ground.
Mt Burr banged home four unanswered goals with Jake Dowdy and Dylan Ridley prominent and raced to a six point lead. Suddenly Hatherleigh looked shaky and only a late goal to Wight steadied the ship to have the scores locked together at halftime. Hatherleigh’s earlier good players had fallen away with only McGrath and Jed Telfer looking up for the contest. Mt Burr grew in confidence as more players came into the game with Crauford still dominating.
The early part of the third quarter was an arm wrestle before Mt Burr rattled on three goals to Crauford, Renzi and Hennink to have Hatherleigh reeling. The Hatherleigh on-ballers had no answers to Crauford and also allowed Tom Renzi to run free too often. Only a late goal to Hatherleigh enabled them to stay in touch but trailing by 13 points at the start of the last quarter.
Mt Burr were now well on top and Hatherleigh’s task was made all the harder when Jake Dowdy booted his third goal to put Mt Burr 19 points ahead and almost with their hands on the premiership trophy. Caolin Buckley goaled for Hatherleigh to give them a glimmer of hope to much was being left to too few and Mt Burr again went into attack and the best man on the ground in Henry Crauford booted his third goal to cap off a great day and was quickly followed by another goal to Dylan Ridley which put the result beyond doubt as the clock ticked over into time-on. Mt Burr were victors by 19 points.
Henry Crauford was awarded the Stan Jones Medal as best on ground for Mt Burr and he had many helpers in the game with defenders Josh and Sam Wallis, the veteran Pete Guyett, coach Tom Renzi and Tom Fennell all good players throughout. It was a disappointing end for Hatherleigh who looked good at the start but were dismantled after quarter time. Their best were Watson, McGrath, Jed Telfer who worked overtime in defence and Rayson but it was three in a row for Mt Burr and they were jubilant.

KALANGADOO PERISH IN STRAIGHT SETS AGAINST MT BURR IN PRELIM FINAL
By Terry Willoughby, September 12, 2017
A scoreless first quarter by Kalangadoo as good as sealed their fate against a dominant Mt Burr in the MSE Prelim Final. The Mozzies burst the game open with five goals to nil to have Kalangadoo on the ropes with a lead of 36 points which could have been greater but for some wayward kicking. Veteran defender Pete Guyett was defying the “age” gods and with fellow defenders Sam Wallis and Hennink shut down nearly all Kalangadoo forward moves.
At the other end for Mt Burr, Jack Gregory and speedster Dylan Ridley were giving their opponents a torrid time as the lead increased by the minute. Kalangadoo regrouped a little in the second term and managed to contain the Mt Burr scoring whilst they added three goals but they also wasted many chances and the Mozzies slipped in to goal twice and hold a 24 point lead at the long break. Bannister and Dallas Jeffree in defence were working overtime with Chris and Ben Mules across the midfield also having some influence on the game.
Mt Burr surged again in the third quarter and cut off Kalangadoo’s scoring avenues whilst booting four goals to a solitary behind and stretch their lead to a match winning 49 points. Ty Stanley and Ridley hand won their positions handsomely as all the sting had gone out of the game. The last quarter was something of a formality with Kalangadoo needing a miracle whilst Mt Burr were content to wind down the clock. The Magpies managed to boot three late goals to give the scores some respectability but Mt Burr were in cruise mode by then, adding only one goal to their score to win easily by 35 points and proceed to next week’s Grand Final against Hatherleigh. Best for Mt Burr were Guyett, Brodie Hennink, Stanley, Ridley, Gamble and Sam Wallis with Gregory booting 4 goals. Good players were much harder to find for Kalangadoo but Bannister, Jeffree, Ousey and the Mules brothers, Ben and Chris battled hard for 4 quarters.

HATHERLEIGH THROUGH TO THE GRAND FINAL WITH BATTLING WIN OVER KALANGADOO
By Terry Willoughby, Monday September 4th, 2017
The weather conditions at Robe made the prospect of high quality game less likely as the day wore on but Kalangadoo made the most of winning the toss. Scoring was never going to be easy but the Magpies kicked four goals to one and lead by 18 points at quarter time but was probably not enough. The forwards of both teams were having a hard time against tough defensive tactics with Pratt and Jeffree on top for Kalangadoo and Watson, Pulmer and McGrath doing likewise for Hatherleigh.
Hatherleigh controlled play for nearly all of the second quarter but couldn’t make it pay when they squandered chances with inaccurate kicking, even though they led by five points at halftime. Kalangadoo, with the wind again, goaled to regain the lead but were unable to establish a sizable lead with Hatherleigh goaling twice to stay well in the contest. Chris Mules and Reeves were trying very hard and gave valuable support to the Kalangadoo defence but Hatherleigh also had good players in Buckley, Telfer and Walker and were within striking distance at three quarter-time when only four points in arrears. Kalangadoo now had an uphill battle on their hands, kicking against the wind and only a wafer thin margin to defend. Hatherleigh quickly seized the moment with Watson and Pulmer leading the way and whilst goals never came with a rush, they did come, along with many behinds and Kalangadoo couldn’t hold them out despite kicking two goals against the run of play. Nine scoring shots by Hatherleigh in the last quarter underlines the greater amount of play they had as they went on to win by eight points and plunge Kalangadoo into a preliminary final against Mt Burr.

MT BURR MOVE INTO PRELIM FINAL AS PORT MAC FOLD MEEKLY IN SECOND HALF
By Terry Willoughby, August 28, 2017
Weather conditions again played a part in the game but Port Mac matched Mt Burr in the early stages to lead narrowly at quarter-time. Will Macdonald was working hard in the ruck for Port Mac as was coach Ben McGregor but Mt Burr had many more willing to put their head over the ball with Nathan Muhovics, Hennink and Josh Wallis leading the way. The margin was only 11 points in Mt Burr’s favour at half-time but the signs were ominous.
The Mozzies booted 5 goals to one in the third quarter as Port Mac’s earlier efforts faded. Henry Crauford, Cory Gamble and Stanley now lifted for Mt Burr and Jack Gregory was a strong target near goal. Mt Burr really put their foot down in the last quarter when finished strongly with 6 goals to single behind from Port Mac to win easily by 76 points. Port Mac limped into the finals and now they limped out.

PORT MAC HOLD ON TO FIFTH SPOT WITH BATTLING WIN
Report by Terry Willoughby, Sunday August 20, 2017
Port Mac saw off a challenge from arch-rival Kongorong by just 11 points but a win and a place in the finals was in the offing. The win was largely unimpressive and Port Mac’s next task in a cut throat semi-final may be a bridge too far. But, first things first, Port Mac were in front from the outset without ever looking safe. Leads of 14, 18 and eight points at each change meant that Kongorong were within reach. Kongorong, who haven’t played in finals for many years, peppered the goals in the last quarter but only managed two goals from eight scoring shots and fell short once again. Will Macdonald in the ruck was best for Port Mac and youngster Ned Wilke booted three goals whilst Bronson Saffin was in everything for Kongorong.
PORT MACDONNELL 11-12 78 NARROWLY OVER KONGORONG 9-13 67
Kalangadoo and Hatherleigh clashed for what could well be the first in a three match challenge as they will meet again in the second semi-final in two weeks and maybe again in the grand final. Scores were locked together at quarter time with the winner still well concealed. Kalangadoo with Ousey and Reeves winning plenty of touches kicked away in the second quarter and snatched a 15 point lead at the long break and looked a little steadier than Hatherleigh. The arm wrestle resumed in the third quarter when both teams booted four goals but Kalangadoo had absorbed everything Hatherleigh threw at them. Matt Faulkner was a beacon near goal for Hatherleigh and Jack Skeer was a force around the ground but they couldn’t quite match Kalangadoo. Hatherleigh booted three goals to again draw closer but Kalangadoo steadied to win by 12 points and retain premiership favourtism.
KALANGADOO 16-12 108 DEFEATED HATHERLEIGH 15-6 96
Nangwarry’s season finished as it started, with another huge defeat, this time by 232 points at the hands of Mt Burr. A relatively slow start by the Mozzies yielded only five5 goals in the first quarter but unlike Nangers who were scoreless for three quarters the floodgates opened in the second term with the Mozzies booting 14 goals. Nangwarry may as well have had the canteen volunteers and gatekeepers playing as Mt Burr piled on 11 more goals in the third term. Jack Gregory booted 17 goals, his best effort ever for Mt Burr, finishing with 73 to the end of the minor round, winning the league goal-kicking trophy. Nangwarry have now lost their last 50 games straight, their last win was in Round 15, 2014 when they beat Robe 16.12 to 15.7
MT BURR 38-16 244 NAILED NANGWARRY 2-0 12
Glencoe had a belated big win over equally disappointing Tantanoola by 103 points but they still remained anchored next to bottom place. They outscored the disinterested Tantanoola in every quarter with Tory Weaver and Brad Mitchell booting five goals each and the regular culprits in Childs and Kasparian in the best players. Not much can be said for Tant.

HATHERLEIGH PUMMEL NANGWARRY AND
KALANGADOO SPOIL KONGORNG’S FINALS BID
By Terry Willoughby, August 14, 2017
Ben Dinnison had the good fortune to boot all of Nangwarry’s goals, three that is, but Hatherleigh had 16 individual goalkickers in their monstrous win against the hapless Saints. It was never likely to be a contest unless you were a Hatherleigh goalkicker as players lined-up repeatedly for a chance to score. Matt Faulkner with 12 goals led the way with Jack Skeer’s 11 just behind.
HATHERLEIGH 48-27 315 OBLITERATED NANGWARRY 3-2 20
Mt Burr’s lazy last quarter made Glencoe’s final scoreline look much better but the result was still the same, a Mozzie win by 45 points. Glencoe tried to stay in touch in the first half but it was Mt Burr’s poor finishing around goal that aided them and the margin of 24 points flattered Glencoe.
Mt Burr pounded the goal-front in the third quarter and raced to a 69 point lead with Hales having a big day out around the forward line where he would finish with eight goals. With little to play Mt Burr eased up in the last quarter and although booting three goals they allowed Glencoe for seven junk-time goals. Something they can iil-afford to do in the coming finals. Tom Hales, Henry Crauford, Dylan Ridley and Zac Watson all played well for Mt Burr. The usual suspects of Zacc Cocks, and Kasparian were among Glencoes’ best.
MT BURR 20-22 142 EASILY OVER GLENCOE 15-7 97
Tantanoola, another of the disappointing teams, made a promising start against Robe and led by 25 points at quarter time with Tom Holmes winning plenty of possessions. Robe, stung by their slow start wiped out the deficit quickly in the second term with coach Jack Kelly dragging his players with him Robe charged to the lead with 9 goals to Tant’s one and lead by 25 points, a total reversal of earlier.
The second half saw Tant battle their way back and the margin was just one point in Robe’s favour at three quarter-time. Tantanoola maintained their momentum and outscored Robe in the last quarter to win by 12 points.
TANTANOOLA 14-15 99 DEFEATED ROBE 13-9 87
Kalangadoo looked likely to have a big win over Kongorong despite being wasteful in front of goal and they led by 26 points after booting only three goals from 12 shots. Kongorong undid all of Kalangadoo’s earlier work when they raced to a 12 point lead at halftime courtesy of an eight goal burst. A pumped-up Kalangadoo regained composure in the third quarter as any top side should and controlled play through Krieger and Ousey to lead by 15 points with a quarter to play. Kongorong’s earlier efforts faded and Kalangadoo came away to win by 21 points.

ROBE DENT MT BURR’S FINALS PROSPECTS
By Terry Willoughby, August 6, 2017
The return of coach Jack Kelly from state duties was enough to inspire Robe to a narrow but significant win over third placed Mt Burr in a rain marred contest. Only nine goals were scored for the day as players slipped and slithered about in heavy rain whilst strong winds lashed the ground. Robe were mindful that a good start would aid their cause but despite them having most of the play they only managed to lead by 17 points after having let Mt Burr in for a very valuable goal. The second quarter was much the same but it was Mt Burr who couldn’t capitalise and Robe held a narrow lead at half-time. Kelly was in everything for Robe and marshalled his players very well. The experienced Pat Perry and Palmer were valuable allies to Robe’s cause. The third quarter saw Robe boot two “worth their weight in gold” goals and keep Mt Burr scoreless to extend their lead to 15 points. Youngster Zac Watson and Brodie Hennink were battling hard to get Mt Burr back in the contest but the conditions were conspiring against any productive football and Robe continued to frustrate them. Mt Burr again had plenty of shots but managed only a single goal and fell short by two points even though Robe again failed to score.
ROBE 5-7 37 HELD ON TO WIN MT BURR 4-11 35
Good starts were the obvious way to put the game beyond reach of opponents in the difficult conditions and Kalangadoo bolted clear of Port MacDonnell with a 10 goal to one first quarter and from there-on were never threatened. Port Mac never managed more than two goals a quarter and Kalangadoo were able to goal against the wind and rain without any great difficulty. The Magpies had many more players willing to contribute as shown with 11 individual goal-kickers. Kalangadoo went further ahead at every change through the dominance of Auld, Krieger and Matt Berkefeld around the midfield and ball-ups. Will MacDonald tried hard in the ruck for Port Mac but the Kalangadoo on-ballers stole most of his work.
KALANGADOO 20-15 135 THRASHED PORT MACDONNELL 7-9 51
Kongorong saw some light at the end of the long tunnel but even after crushing Nangwarry by 189 points they remain in in fifth spot. Nangwarry failed to score in three of the quarters and most of the Kongorong defender’s suffered from inactivity in the cold with play anchored at the other end. Brian Cordy booted seven goals for Kongorong in the win.
KONGORONG 28-27 195 INFLICTED MORE PAIN ON NANGWARRY 1-0 6
Hatherleigh were in no mood for any upsets and quickly asserted their power over the disappointing Glencoe. The Eagles raced to a 28 point lead and pushed further ahead in the second quarter to leave Glencoe well behind. Wight with eight and veteran Matt Faulkner three goals were too good for a number of opponents but it was also the better teamwork that made the difference. Hatherleigh went further ahead with six goals to two from Glencoe and they look the only serious to Kalangadoo for the premiership.

KALANGADOO HAVE GOOD DAY FOR BYE IN MSE AS RESULTS DON’T CHANGE ANYTHING
By Terry Willoughby, Sunday 30 July 2017
Robe, minus the influence of coach Jack Kelly and key player Craig Pitt were no match for the second placed Hatherleigh. After an even first quarter Hatherleigh took complete control and booted 17 goals as Robe became almost becalmed. Leading by 25 points at the start of the third quarter Hatherleigh slammed on seven goals to nil with Tim Merrett and Brad Wight cutting holes in the Robe defence. Hatherleigh continued on their merry way in the last quarter but did allow Robe a couple of junk-time goals before heading to the showers after winning by 89 points. Matt Faulkner, Merrett with eight goals and Caolin Buckley shone for Hatherleigh. Robe only had young ruckman Jack Sneath, Perry and Agnew up for the battle.
HATHERLEIGH 19-10 124 THRASHED ROBE 5-5 35
Kongorong ended a long losing streak when they outlasted the equally disappointing Glencoe by eight points. The win may have restored Kongorong’s morale a little but they still remain well out of finals contention as do Glencoe. Nine of the total of 15 goals for the game were kicked in the first quarter which shows how the weather affected the play but probably the result. Kongorong coach Bronson Saffin, suited by the conditions, particularly late in the game when scoring became near impossible was best afield.
KONGORONG 8-12 60 NARROWLY OVER GLENCOE 7-10 52
Nangwarry endured another crushing defeat as well as the deplorable weather when Port Macdonnell kicked abysmally to win by 151 points. It was never going to be easy for Nangwarry but only two scoring shots to Port Mac’s 53 tells the story although Port Mac should have made a better fist of it after missing so many chances.
PORT MACDONNELL 21-32 158 CRUSHED NANGWARRY 1-1 7
Mt Burr defeated another disappointing team in Tantanoola by 53 points. The Mozzies set up a big lead early and were never in danger from then on. Whilst the game was won easily no details were provided which is disappointing for the public who have a right to know how their teams perform.

PORT MACDONNELL HAVE ALMOST LOCKED DOWN A PLACE IN TOP FOUR
By Terry Willoughby, Sunday July 23, 2017
Port Mac overcame a tenacious Glencoe, particularly in the second term, to win by 32 points and open up a game and a half gap on the fifth placed team. The erratic Port Mac ran to a 17 point lead at halftime with big man McElroy marking powerfully and kicking accurately to boot seven goals. Port Mac maintained their lead in an even third term with another big man in Will Macdonald also in good touch. Glencoe were close enough at three quarter-time but Port Mac finished far better with 5 goals to just two from Glencoe and win comfortably by 32 points and leave the Murphies with only Nangwarry below on the ladder.

Kalangadoo seemed to put all their eggs in one basket against Nangwarry when they piled on ten goals in the second quarter before lazily playing out the game to win by 136 points. Former Nangwarry player Fatchen was best for Kalangadoo whilst Krieger and Agnew each booted five goals. It was certainly not Nangwarry’s worst performance.
KALANGADOO 23-25 163 THRASHED NANGWARRY 4-3 27
Kongorong’s downward spiral continued at the hands or should that be feet of a “Brad” Pitt inspired Robe. Pitt was very much the difference as he dominated the game and also booted eight goals into the bargain. Scores were pretty much even in the first half with Kongorong leading narrowly by five points. However, when Pitt got cracking, ably assisted by former North Gambier midfielder Pat Perry and coach Jack Kelly it was all but game over! Kongorong coach Bronson Saffin was trying hard to lift his team but another last quarter fade-out in which Robe slammed on seven goals put the lights out for the hawks. Robe are unlikely to play in finals but Kongorong are also out of the race after a promising start to the season.
ROBE 19-8 122 TOO GOOD FOR KONGORONG 13-8 86
Tantanoola were another team to continue their disappointing season when they fell to a big loss against second placed Hatherleigh by 95 points. Hatherleigh were never in danger of losing and went further ahead at every change, 23 at quarter time, 53 at halftime and 66 at the last break before cruising home. They cruised so hard in fact, that they couldn’t provide any best players or goalkickers which at least Tantanoola could!

KALANGADOO CLEAR AWAY FROM REST
By Terry Willoughby, Monday July 17, 2017
Kalangadoo saw off a feisty Glencoe after scores were level at quarter time. The Magpies quickly opened up a gap in the scores when they led by 30 points at the start of the second half. With a dominant midfield and on-ball brigade Kalangadoo went further as Glencoe unravelled. Seven goals to three gave the Magpies a commanding 54 point lead which they built on in the last quarter when they booted another seven goals to zip and thrash Glencoe by 100 points and go a game clear on top of the ladder.
KALANGADOO 25-18 168 THRASHED GLENCOE 10-8 68
Tantanoola condemned Kongorong to another loss which has seen the Hawks tumble from second place to out of the top four. Tant quickly stamped their authority on the game with five goals to one in the first quarter and whilst they weren’t particularly good Kongorong rarely looked likely to win. Tant maintained a good hold on the game through the kick-winning ability of Tom Holmes and the goal-kicking of Garrett Ha. Kongorong raised something of a revival late but Tant held on to win 13 points.
TANTANOOLA 12-13 85 DEFEATED 11-6 72
Robe made nearly all the running against Port MacDonnell but failed the get result they wanted when the Bay boys levelled the scores late in the game and shared the result. Robe led at each change of ends with Jon Agnew in everything and midfielders Pat Perry and Craig Pitt proving hard to stop. Port Mac were battling to stay in touch with defenders working hard to hold Robe at bay. Ruckman Wil Macdonald and coach Ben McGregor led by example and mounted a charge in the last quarter saw Port Mac squeeze out a draw when they looked likely to lose.
PORT MACDONNELL 11-13 79 DREW WITH ROBE 12-7 79
Hatherleigh’s early season form appears to have deserted them as Mt Burr outlasted them to win by nine points and draw level on the premiership ladder. Mt Burr led narrowly at quarter time and again at halftime. Jack Gregory was effective with six goals at full forward but it was the good work of Sam Wallis and Ty Stanley that kept Mt Burr in front. The Mozzies stole a break on Hatherleigh in the third quarter when they booted four goals to one and lead by 28 points at the last change. Hatherleigh fought back strongly but it wasn’t enough to prevent a Mt Burr win.

TOP THREE A STEP ABOVE THE REST AS FIGHT FOR FOURTH SPOT GOES ON
By Terry Willoughby, July 2, 2017
Kalangadoo brought Robe’s winning run to an end and probably ended their finals hopes in a hard fought contest. The Magpies raced to a big lead in the first quarter with a seven goal burst that had Robe on the back foot. Coach Ben Mules and Auld were in the thick of the action for Kalangadoo with Krieger also in good form.
Robe slowly clawed back the big lead and got within by four goals by halftime but used a lot of petrol to get there with Fletcher, Dawson and Sneath leading the way. Kalangadoo were stung into action and again burst clear in the third quarter, determined to see off the challenge. They won most of the clearances through Krieger and Matt Berkefeld and surged to a 40 point lead at three quarter-time. Despite not scoring in the last quarter, which must be worry, Kalangadoo went on to win by 12 points after Robe kicked the only 4 goals of the quarter.
KALANGADOO 13-7 85 NARROWLY, ROBE 11-7 73
Tantanoola pulled off an upset when they led all day against Port MacDonnell to record their best win so far this season. Tant led at every change and started to gain the ascendancy in the second term when they stretched their lead to 22 points. Building on the momentum they added four goals in the third quarter with Lane on top around goal and Tom Holmes winning many kicks around the midfield. The defences of both teams crumbled in the last quarter but Port Mac were unable to draw any closer and Tant won comfortably by 25 points.
TANTANOOLA 17-14 116 TOO GOOD, PORT MACDONNELL 13-11 89
Mt Burr tore through the defences from the start to completely crush Kongorong and cause some headaches for others as finals approach. The Mozzies had twelve individual goalkickers with Jack Gregory leading the way with seven. Wright was the only threat near goal for Kongorong but the play rarely reached the part of the ground as Mt Burr dominated everywhere. Kongorong failed to kick a goal in the first half and Mt Burr led by 62 points. Resistance was non-existent as Mt Burr poured on the goals again after halftime to win by 119 points. Kongorongs’ season looks to be in free-fall after a good start.
MT BURR 24-17 161 THRASHED KONGORONG 6-6 42
It was party-time for Glencoe as they went on a goalkicking orgy against the kicking bag that has become Nangwarry. Twelve players got among the 39 goals kicked by Glencoe but Nanger’s also booted six which is better than their average of one from earlier in the season. The win had no impact on ladder positions as Glencoe remain in 7th spot with little chance of finals.

TOP SIDES EXERT THEIR INFLUENCE
By Terry Willoughby, Sunday June 25, 2017
Hatherleigh exposed Kongorong as little more than nuisance value and handed the Hawks another big loss. Hatherleigh started slowly but still led by 16 points before extending their lead to 23 at halftime. With Faulkner, Sullivan and Caolin Buckley among the goals Hatherleigh were rarely in danger as Kongorong slipped further behind. The Eagles had their most productive quarter in the last with five goals as Kongorong faded rather meekly. Hatherleigh maintained their place on top with the 52 point win.
HATHERLEIGH 16-14 110 EASILY, KONGORONG 8-10 58
Robe went on a goal-kicking spree against the hapless Nangwarry to win by a whopping 188 points but at least the embattled “Nangers” kept the margin below 200 points. “Brad” Pitt booted 13 goals and Cuthbertson 9 for Robe but most players were reduced to spectators.
ROBE 32-20 212 THRASHED NANGWARRY 3-6 24
Kalangadoo, whose form has been rather erratic in recent weeks, had an easy 63 point win over a disappointing Tantanoola. The Magpies led from the first bounce and never looked in danger against the struggling Tantanoola, increasing their lead in every quarter. Auld, McManus and Jon Mules led the way for Kalangadoo and Ousey booted five goals. Kalangadoo finished strongly with eight last quarter goals and ended any forlorn hope of finals for Tantanoola.
KALANGADOO 20-14 134 BELTED TANTANOOLA 10-11 71
Port MacDonnell needed to redeem themselves after last week’s embarrassment and they went goal for goal with Mt Burr in the first half but still trailed by six points. Mt Burr’s slow start the season appears to have ended and they are gathering momentum for another tilt at finals. The close tussle continued in the second half but Mt Burr had edged away to an 11 point lead. Jack Gregory had provided a strong target at full forward for the Mozzies and Henry Crauford matched Port Mac star Wil McDonald in the ruck. Port Mac again matched Mt Burr in the last quarter but the Mozzies had a greater spread of good players and held on to win by 12 points. The win saw Mt Burr jump to third on the ladder whist Port Mac fell to fifth.

MID SOUTH EAST ROLLER-COASTER TOSSES UP
MORE UPSETS AS KALANGADOO LOSE AGAIN
Terry Willoughby - June 17, 2017
Mt Burr whose recent form has been unconvincing blitzed Kalangadoo with a seven goal opening quarter on the back of the dominance several good players. Coach Tom Renzi and on-baller Nathan Muhovics led the way as the Mozzies showed their best form for the year. Kalangadoo cut the influence of Mt Burr’s midfielders in the second quarter but struggled to make inroads into the Mozzies lead and still trailed by 14 points at the half-time break. Deadly accurate kicking by Mt Burr enabled them to again kick away in the third term when they booted four goals straight to extend their lead to 27 points. Try as Kalangadoo might they couldn’t bridge the gap and even though they had more scoring chances the Mt Burr forwards finished better by 23 points.
MT BURR 15-6 96 TOO GOOD FOR KALANGADOO 10-13 73
Glencoe’s recent good form vanished as Robe dominated the first half and set up a match-winning lead. Pitt was in dynamic form for Robe and was ably supported by coach Jack Kelly and Kane Cuthbertson. The game was all but over with Robe ahead by 49 points entering the second half. Glencoe had as much of the play in the third quarter but finished with only one goal from seven scoring shots whilst Robe did the reverse and galloped further ahead by 73 points. Robe continued to call the tune despite some lazy defence which allowed Glencoe in for four goals but they were never in danger and won easily by 82 points.
ROBE 22-14 146 THRASHED GLENCOE 8-16 64
It was Tantanoola’s turn to inflict more punishment on the hapless Nangwarry but were unable to do it with the same devastating effect as other teams. Nangwarry managed to restrict Tantanoola’s output and only trailed by 61 points at half-time. Tantanoola kept Nangwarry goal-less thereafter and careered away to win by 161 points. Big enough you might say but it was well short of the 300 point mark set in recent games.
TANTANOOLA 25-22 172 EASILY NANGWARRY 1-5 11
After a relatively even first quarter in which Hatherleigh led by 15 points the flood-gates opened and it was Port MacDonnell who got washed away. Port Mac managed only one goal four behinds for the remainder whist Hatherleigh piled on 18 goals. The Eagles dominated all over the ground against a spiritless Port Mac with Gerard McGrath continuing his excellent form from the interleague weekend. Hatherleigh hardly had a poor player whilst Port Mac scarcely had a good one. Merrett with six and Caolin Buckley four goals also contributed highly to Hatherleigh’s big win.

PORT MACDONNELL DEFLATE KONGORONG’S BALLOON
By Terry Willoughby, Monday June 5, 2017
Port Mac jumped out of the blocks with a six goal opening quarter which left Kongorong playing catch-up all game and at no stage did they threaten. The Bay boys had more scoring avenues backed by a strong on-ball brigade and defence. The margin at half-time had blown out to 44 points and Kongorong were just about cooked. They had a more productive third quarter with four goals but Port Mac still outscored them. The last quarter was ho-hum football with Port Mac coasting home, excuse the pun, by 70 points. Kongorong have failed dismally in the last two weeks which suggests after their earlier form they may have got ahead of themselves. Port Mac, however, may be on the rise.
PORT MACDONNELL 20-14 134 EASILY OVER KONGORONG 9-10 64
Tantanoola’s disappointing run continued when they went down to an improving Glencoe by just two points after trailing nearly all game. After an even first term where Glencoe led by just three points, Tant slowly slipped further behind. Brad Mitchell was winning many possessions for Glencoe and finishing off with goals and Tant were unable to curb his influence. Brayden Lane was unlikely goal-kicker for Tant but they lacked cohesion up forward and Glencoe all but had the game in their keeping when they led by 24 points at the last change. Tant rallied strongly in the final term and rattled on 5 goals but Glencoe held on to win narrowly.
GLENCOE 15-12 102 HELD ON TO BEAT TANTANOOLA 15-10 100
Hatherleigh produced one of their better performances against a top side in quite some time when defeated Kalangadoo quite convincingly. They looked the better team from the start when they raced to a 24 point lead at quarter-time and it should have been more. Kalangadoo restricted them in the second term but were unable to reduce the margin all that much and still trailed by 15 at the half. Hatherleigh again stepped on the gas in the third quarter and booted five goals to have Kalangadoo in deep trouble and 43 points in arrears at three quarter-time. McGrath and Sullivan had been prolific around the mid-field for Hatherleigh and provided the forwards with many chances but also aided the defence to restrict Kalangadoo’s scoring. Play in the last quarter slowed markedly but Hatherleigh ran out comfortable winners by 42 points.
HATHERLEIGH 12-11 83 COMFORTABLY OVER KALANGADOO 6-5 41
Mt Burr were just another team to have goal-kicking practice at Nangwarry’s expense when they piled on 46 goals before time ran out to win by 299 points. They obviously wasted sometime in the early quarters because they piled on 16 goals in the final term.

KONGORONG HITS A STUMBLING BLOCK IN MSE FOOTBALL
By Terry Willoughby, Monday May 29, 2017
Kalangadoo gave Kongorong plenty to think about when they demolished Kongorong by 87 points. The Hawks came into the game with plenty of confidence but Kalangadoo smashed that in the first quarter when they raced to a match-winning lead of 37 points. Krieger was on fire on the forward line for Kalangadoo and they went further ahead as they kept Kongorong goal-less for the quarter and added four more to have an unassailable lead of 62 points. Coach Bronson Saffin and Dwayne Phillips were Kongorong’s only credible players as Kalangadoo continued to dominate in all positions. Any thoughts of an even contest had long gone and Kalangadoo cruised home to win by 87 pointts.

Tantanoola trailed for three quarters against Robe but still managed to get up and win. Robe had much the better part of action before half-time and looked likely winners at that stage when the led by 20 points. Scoring obviously became more difficult after the main break as Robe managed only a single point in the last two quarters whilst Tant gradually reeled them in. Trailing by 3 points at the start of the last quarter, Tantanoola battled their way to the lead with ultra-valuable goals to win by 13 points. Robe’s problems with points just didn’t end at the scoreboard either!!
TANTANOOLA 8-9 57 NARROWLY OVER ROBE 6-8 44
A lot of familiar names appeared in the best player lists of both teams as Glencoe caused a boil-over in defeating Mt Burr by 24 points and they were a curious mixture of young and old. Glencoe split the game open when they booted six goals to two in the second term and shoot to a 33 point lead. Mt Burr never recovered and Glencoe increased their lead to 46 points at the last change. Despite going goal-less in the last quarter and conceding four Mt Burr goals Glencoe held on to win comfortably.

MT BURR REVERSE SEMI LOSS TO WIN FLAG
Terry Willoughby - September 11, 2016
Kalangadoo won a wind assisted second semi-final two weeks ago and looked set to repeat the win early on when they led Mt Burr by 9 pts at quarter-time. Both teams had chances going forward but Kalangadoo looked more settled and kicked truly. Matt Berkefeld was influential for the Magpies and Lowe and Pratt were solid on the backline. Ty Stanley had started well for Mt Burr but many others took time to warm-up.
Mt Burr changed up a gear in the second term and with tall Henry Crauford giving drive and with small-men Dylan Ridley and coach Tomas Renzi slipping in for goals the Mozzies raced to the lead. Using the ball more efficiently Mt Burr rattled on seven goals amid a swag of chances whilst Kalangadoo blundered and stumbled under the onslaught with just two goals to be in serious trouble at half-time, trailing by 23 points. Mt Burr had all the momentum heading into the third quarter and weren’t about to let it slip. Dylan Ridley continued to be a menace on the forward line for the Mozzies with Mitch Gordon and Zac Watson bobbing all over the place. Mt Burr went further ahead in the quarter with four goals to just two from Kalangadoo who looked a spent force at the last change with the Mozzies 33 points in front. Mt Burr’s Tyler Stanley continued to play well and Kalangadoo were unable to find a winning forward as the Mozzies again had the bulk of forward entries and should have won by more but for sloppy goal-kicking.
Best for Mt Burr were Tyler Stanley, tall Henry Crauford, Mitch Gordon, unstoppable Dylan Ridley who booted six goals, helmeted Zac Watson and Cory Gamble. It was a dirty day for Kalangadoo who won the second semi but they don’t payout for earlier wins. The Magpie’s best were Matt Berkefeld, Lowe, Pratt, Lachy Jones, Jack Casey and Fatchen. Mt Burr, still the benchmark in MSE football with a 42 point win.
