PORT MAC TAKES OUT 2012 FLAG
PORT MAC END MT BURR’S REIGN IN MID SOUTH EAST
by Terry Willoughby - September 17, 2012
Mt Burr, aiming for a 4th premiership in a row, made a good start in the Grand Final against warm favorites Port MacDonnell. Port Mac shed any early nerves and went goal for goal with capointain Steve Noble leading the way around the packs. The Mozzies led by the narrowest of margins at quarter-time but couldn’t shake the resolve of Port Mac who started the 2nd term positively and steadily got on top late in the term through the marking power of Dylan Bromley at half forward and Will McDonald in the ruck.
Mt Burr were still in touch but were showing signs of fatigue after a tough run in the finals with some of their ageing players looking tired. Port Mac came out after ½ time determined to put their stamp on the premiership and crush any Mt Burr challenge. They took complete control with their marking power on the forward line a stand out feature. Bromley, McDonald and rugged Ben O’Dine continually won the ball and with more players around the contest they booted 7 goals to two to race to a 40 point lead. Luke McIntyre across half-back was another to have a big influence for Port Mac.
Many Mt Burr players were out on their feet whilst Port Mac looked fresh with a quarter to play. Chris Puiatti was still trying to lift his team along with youngster Ben Flood and Jake Munn in the ruck but they were simply outnumbered at the contest. Port Mac were not going to show any mercy in the last term and many players got in to goal-kicking act when they added another 7 to Mt Burr’s 3 goals to record a well-deserved win by 62 points. They had a remarkable twelve goal- kickers in their tally of twenty-three which emphasized the difficulty for Mt Burr who just couldn’t lock them down.
Captain Steve Noble won the Stan Jones Medal for best on ground but Port Mac had many good players with Bromley, O’Dine, McDonald, McIntyre and Steve Hunter among them. Mt Burr’s challenge faded after ½ time with Chris Puiatti, Munn, Flood and Scott Bevan being their best.

HATHERLEIGH FALLS AS THE MOZZIES BITE BACK
10 September 2012
Hatherleigh had more of the play early but inaccuracy in the windy, heavy conditions prevented them from getting a break on Mt Burr in the Prelim final. Mt Burr held a one point lead going into the 2nd term but weren’t plagued by the goal-front jitters of Hatherleigh. Both teams had plenty of chances with midfielders Matt Fabris and Todd Watson for Hatherleigh doing well but not getting the desired results which allowed Mt Burr to extend their lead to 16 points at the ½ time break.
Chris Murray and Jack Gregory were having an impact on the forward line for the Mozzies and when their mid-field and on-ball brigade of Flood, Gallio, Piuatti and Muhovics got control in the 3rd term they really broke the Hatherleigh defence apart. Five goals to a solitary point from Hatherleigh gave Mt Burr all the momentum they needed and the game was all but over at ¾ time with the Mozzies leading by 51 points.
The sniff of four premierships in a row drove them on and they added another four last quarter goals to Hatherleigh’s two and run out easy winners by 69 points. Their greater depth of talent was evident in the 2nd half when almost every player lifted and made a contribution and denied Hatherleigh use of the ball. Hatherleigh’s confidence took a hammering after a promising start. Better players for Mt Burr were youngster Ben Flood whose mobility and ball-winning stood out across the mid-field, Chris Murray for his 8 goals, he had good support from Jack Gregory, Clint Gallio and Chris Piuatti. Mt Burr advance to next week’s grand final against Port MacDonnell at Kalangadoo.

PORT MAC DEMONS REPEL THE MT BURR MOZZIES
September 3, 2012
Mt Burr were quickly into action in the MSE 2nd semi against Port MacDonnell. The Mozzies showing all their finals experience with hard-nut defender Matt Lesslie and veteran Scott Bevan keeping the Port Mac forwards quiet to give their team a 14 point lead. Port Mac started better in the 2nd term with Will McDonald coming into the game and mid-fielder Adam Taylor getting plenty of touches. The Bay boys still found goals hard to get but the Mozzies scoring almost dried up in a battle of defences. Port Mac led by just 2 points at ½ time.
Mt Burr looked much better in the 3rd quarter with prolific ball-winners Chris Puiatti and Nathan Muhovics giving Port Mac plenty of headaches and Will Whitty defending strongly. The Mozzies kicked 5 goals to one and appeared likely winners when the stretched the lead to 25 points with a quarter to play. Port Mac looked shaky but refused to concede and charged back into the game through McDonald, Taylor and youngster Riley Chant. They slammed on 7 goals without a miss and put Mt Burr under immense pressure.
The Mozzies buckled under the onslaught and could only add 1 goal 4 to see their lead evaporate. Port Mac broke the shackles and unsighted players bobbed everywhere as they went on to win by 7 points. Mt Burr had their chances but didn’t capitalize on them. Better players for Port Mac were big man Will McDonald for a strong 4 quarter effort, nuggety little man Adam Taylor, Riley Chant and Brad Stephens. Veterans Scott Bevan and Matt Lesslie, captain Chris Puiatti and Nathan Muhovics almost got Mt Burr over the line.

HATHERLEIGH TIP OUT TANT IN 1ST SEMI UPSET
Tantanoola took an early lead in the First semi and things seemed to going to plan but Hatherleigh soon put a stop to that. Trailing by 15 points, the Eagles started to get on top in the 2nd term through talented mid-fielder Tylah Saunders and Jason Faulkner. They gathered plenty of kicks and put the Tant defence under pressure and with Josh Sandland kicking goals at full forward an upset looked on the cards. Tant’s big guns were having a hard time with Jason Rowe working overtime to keep his team in the contest but trailing by 7 points at ½ time.
Hatherleigh kicked clear in the 3rd term, adding 4 goals and keeping Tant goal-less to be 31 points up at the last change. Hatherleigh had more players contributing in contrast to Tantanoola who were floundering. The Eagles kept going strongly in the last quarter adding another 4 goals whilst Tant got their only goal for the half but it was game over. Hatherleigh with their confidence riding high recorded a shock 53 point win and move into the preliminary final whilst Tant will be wondering where it all went wrong.
Better players for Hatherleigh were tireless on-baller Jase Faulkner, smooth moving Tylah Saunders, Josh Sandland with his 6 goals, Todd Watson and Matt Faulkner. Tant’s best were much harder to find but Scott Agnew, Jason Rowe, defender Matt Warren and Cam Saint battled hard for 4 quarters.

NO CHANGE IN MSE TOP FOUR
Report from Terry Willoughby, August 20, 2012
Playing for pride but not playing with pride. Mt Burr treated their supporters to an exhibition by thrashing Kalangadoo by 173 points. The Mozzies did as they liked from the start and booted 7 goals in each of the first two quarters to lead by 88 points. Prolific kick-winner Chris Puiatti added goals to his resume by kicking 6 whilst the dominant forwards Chris Murray 9 and Jack Gregory 5 toyed with the Magpie defence. Mt Burr continued in merciless fashion in the 2nd half and added another 15 goals whilst Kalangadoo could kick only 2 for the day.
Port MacDonnell led throughout against 4th placed Hatherleigh but were never going well enough to put the game out of reach. The Eagles kepoint nagging away but just couldn’t reach the lead and trailed by 14 points at the last change. Port Mac with greater depointh stepped on the gas and raced away with 7 goals to two in the last term to win comfortably by 45 points and keep a grip on top spot. Will McDonald starred in the marking contests and booted 3 goals whilst mid-fielder Ryan Fox and Steve Noble outclassed their opponents. Hatherleigh lacked a key forward and had to battle for their goals. The Slape brothers, Cam and Clint gave solid 4 quarters efforts, Matt Faulkner and Tylah Saunders tried hard.
Glencoe demolished Nangwarry to the tune of 158 points. The Saints were competitive until quarter-time but just dropped away after that. Leo Sharaf ran riot on the forward line and booted 12 goals against little or no opposition for the Murphies and Zacc Cocks gave another consistent performance along with Adam Creek and Josh Wilson.
Robe gave their most spirited display in weeks and matched Tantanoola throughout the 1st half to be level at the long break. Tantanoola were stung by the challenge and got their game moving and closed down Robe’s earlier avenues to goal. Veteran and former coach Jason Rowe continued his run of good form to be best for Tantanoola with 4 goals along with Bowering, Reilly, Perry and Stringer. Jarryd Dawson booted 6 goals to be high in Robe’s best along with Dylan Coxon.

ARCH RIVALS CLASH IN MID SOUTH EAST
August 13, 2012
Glencoe and Kalangadoo slugged it out in one of the MSE most enduring rivalries. Neither team is involved in finals but it didn’t matter. Glencoe made a better start and led throughout the 1st half. They had more of the play with coach Adam Price using his strength to create openings and on-baller Adam Creek picking up plenty of kicks and looked in control by 25 points at ½ time. Kalangadoo fought back strongly with an 8 goal 3rd quarter with Ben Walker and Brad Auld providing the spark and Matt Doody the goals. Others, such as Andrew Stone and coach Jason Dunn were dangerous around the packs as the Magpies took a lead of 3 points into the last quarter. Glencoe re-grouped and despite inaccuracy battled back into the lead as Kalangadoo’s challenge faltered to win by 8 points. Glencoe’s best were Brendan King, Price, Creek and Trent Hawke. Rugged and persistent Ben Walker stood out for Kalangadoo.
Hatherleigh overcame a slow start to run over Nangwarry by 86 points. Trailing by 11 points at quarter-time they piled on 8 goals to zip in the 2nd quarter and the result was a forgone conclusion. They went further ahead with forwards Sneath and Jack Skeer each booting 5 goals. State country rep Tylah Saunders with 4 goals was among the best for Hatherleigh along with Todd Watson and Matt Faulkner. Ben Dinnison booted 5 of Nangwarry’s 10 goals.
Port MacDonnell had goal-kicking practice against hapless Robe. Not content with a 93 point lead at ½ time the Bay boys rammed through another 24 goals in the last half to win by 237 points. Dylan Bromley booted 11 goals and Joe Noonan 8 for Port Mac. Robe coach Kevin Briggs fears for Robe’s future and so must many others.
Mt Burr showed why they are the most feared team in the top four by whipping Kongorong by 98 points. They slammed on 8 goals to one in the 1st quarter and had the game wrapped up before Kongorong had time to blink. Key forwards Chris Murray and Jack Gregory booted 7 and 5 goals respectively to head a list of twelve goal-kickers. The powerful Mt Burr on-ball and mid-field brigade just kept pushing the ball forward and Kongorong were unable to stop them. John Simkin was Kongorong’s only winner and he finished with 6 goals. Mt Burr have moved into 2nd spot as Tantanoola had the bye.

ROUND 16 REPORT - 6th August 2012
The season can’t end soon enough for the bottom 5 teams and finals begin for the top four, Robe had their 2nd win for the year. The sea-siders were on the attack from the start and had Nangwarry in trouble by quarter-time when they led by 33 points. They forged further ahead and had the game wrapped up with a 64 point lead at ¾ time. Despite allowing Nangwarry to boot 8 last quarter goals Robe were never in danger and won by 32 points. Jaryd Dawson booted 7 goals for Robe with Fletcher, Sawyer and Pearce named as best.
Hatherleigh had a battle on their hands against Kalangadoo with the Magpies leading by 9 points at quarter-time. Hatherleigh quickly gathered some poise and booted 6 goals to two and lead by 16 points at the main break but Kalangadoo weren’t about to lie down. Ball-magnet Michael Jones was in everything for Kalangadoo and Ben Walker relished the in-close stuff to push their team back into the lead by 20 points at the last change. Hatherleigh looked to be in trouble but produced a 7 goal last quarter to over-run Kalangadoo who remained scoreless to win by 27 points. Matt and Jason Faulkner again played well for Hatherleigh along with Todd Watson and Dylan Clough. Walker, Jones and Andrew Stone were best for Kalangadoo.
Top sides Port MacDonnell and Tantanoola went goal for goal throughout the 1st half with Tant holding the narrowest of leads. Bulky Kym Dodd and Dustin Knaggs were dangerous near goals and booted 4 apiece for Tant with veteran rover Jason Rowe providing plenty of drive around the packs. Port Mac lifted in the 3rd term with 6 goals to three with strong marking from Dylan Bromley and Joe Noonan on the forward line. Will McDonald was the leading ruckman in the game and stout defender Ben O’Dine closed down Tant’s forwards. The last quarter was again even but Port Mac maintained the lead to win by 17 points. McDonald, O’Dine and Zack Williams were best for Port Mac, Noonan and Bromley kicked 5 goals each. Tant’s best were Rowe, Scott Agnew and coach Tim Stringer.
The closest game was between Glencoe and Kongorong who were playing for pride only. Only a few points separated the teams from start to finish with Glencoe winning narrowly by 5 points. Josh Wilson and coach Adam Price were best for Glencoe. Brad Cordy and Jamie Croker headed Kongorong’s better players.

NO SURPRISES IN MSE
July 30, 2012
Tantanoola had an easy 125 point win over Nangwarry in MSE football but the result changes little with the top 4 well and truly settled. Dustin Knaggs had another big day around goals and finished with 7 for Tant. Nangwarry never threatened and Tant cruised from the start, increasing their lead at every break. Better players for Tant were Knaggs, former coach Jason Rowe and Cameron Saint.
Mt Burr also had an easy win over Glencoe. The Mozzies are tuning up nicely for finals action and many players shared the goals whilst Glencoe just didn’t have the ability to stop them. Inaccuracy prevented Mt Burr from having a bigger margin at the end but 89 points was enough. Veteran Dale Bowering was best for the Mozzies ahead of Little and on-baller Nathan Muhovics. Young ruckman Matt Kasparian tried hard for Glencoe but many disappointed.
Hatherleigh had a tougher assignment against Kongorong but secured their 4th spot with a 29 point win in heavy conditions. The game was never a high standard with only 2 points scored in the last quarter. The Faulkner brothers, Matt and Jase did most of heavy work for Hatherleigh and defender Todd Watson stopped the Kongorong forwards.
Kalangadoo’s win over Robe by 78 points has assured last years grand finalists will get the wooden spoon in 2012. Robe have tumbled spectacularly with only one win for the season and they never looked a chance against the Magpies. Matt Doody found space to kick 5 goals for Kalangadoo and veteran Michael Jones racked plenty of kicks to be best afield ahead of big man Stewart McLaughlin.

PORT MAC KEEP TIGHT HOLD ON TOP SPOT
Report by Terry Willoughby - July 23, 2012
Port MacDonnell tightened their hold on top spot when they kept Nangwarry to just one goal for the game whilst they racked up 27 to win by 176 points in the MSE. The very one sided game saw Port Mac use Nangwarry like a training drill. Joe Noonan booted 7 goals and injury prone forward Steven Hunter 5 as the Bay boys went unchallenged most of the day. Rugged Ben O’Dine was Port Mac’s best ahead of Noonan, Hunter and Zack Williams.
The constant threat that is Mt Burr again showed out when easily defeated 4th placed Hatherleigh by 86 points. The Mozzies powerful mid-field and on-ball brigade gave many chances to the multi- pronged forward line who finished the job. Mt Burr went right on with the game after ½ time when they added 12 goals to Hatherleigh’s three. Nathan Muhovics, Chris Puiatti and veteran forward Adam Wiese starred for Mt Burr. The Fabris brothers , Dale and Matt triedvaliantly for Hatherleigh.
Tantanoola had a comfortable 57 point win over lowly Kalangadoo in a game that never rose to great heights. Kalangadoo kept in touch early but couldn’t stem the flow of goals as Tant steadily increased their lead. Dustin Knaggs had a rare day on the goal-kicking front to finish with 6 and Sam Tincknell booted 5. Ash Bryant and coach Tim Stringer starred around the stoppages and continually sent Tantanoola forward. Veteran Michael Jones was again best for Kalangadoo along with Tom Bannisterand Brian Casey.
Robe, after some terrible beatings matched it with Kongorong for nearly 3 quarters before falling away in the last. Kongorong shook off the bottom side and booted 7 goals to one in the last quarter to win by 46 points.

AS EXPECTED IN ROUND 13
Round 13 report - July 9, 2012
All games went as expected although last years grand finalist Robe’s fall hit new lows when they were demolished to the tune of 248 points by a powerful Mt Burr outfit. In the wintry conditions that covered most of the lower South East the Mozzies piled on 41 goals including 13 in the last quarter to trounce the hapless Roosters. Chris Murray with 11 and Jack Gregory 8 goals did as they liked around goal and Dylan Gamble dominated on the ball. That Robe actually named any best players is a talking point.
Hatherleigh overcame a slow start to defeat Glencoe by just 7 points and end any chance the Murphies had of finals action. Goals were hard to get all day and Hatherleigh had only one by ½ time and trailed by 17 points. Simon Brook and rugged Adam Price were relishing the conditions for Glencoe but Hatherleigh got on top in the 3rd term with roly-poly Simon Beggs showing out. They outscored Glencoe in the last quarter with the Fabris boys Dale and Matt doing well.
Port MacDonnell easily accounted for Kalangadoo to retain top spot. The Bay boys were never threatened after booting 6 goals to two in the 1st quarter. They went further ahead and the game was sewn up when they led by 49 points at the main break. The Noonan brothers, Joe and Pat booted 7 and 3 goals each to be too good for the K’doo backmen and burly Ben O’Dine used his strength to create openings. Kalangadoo were outclassed everywhere with only veteran Michael Jones showing out. Port Mac easy winners by 75 points. Tantanoola were another team to win easily. They had far too much talent for Kongorong and apart from a brief moment in the 2nd quarter were never in danger. They finished with an 8 goal burst in the last quarter to win by 78 points. Kym Dodd used his bulk to boot 7 goals with Chris Perry and Tim Stringer dominating around the mid-field and stoppages. Despite recruiting several players Kongorong have been disappointing and will again miss finals.

MORE UPSETS IN MID SOUTH EAST FOOTY
Round 12 report - July 9, 2012
Tantanoola were again found wanting in MSE footy when they went down to Mt Burr. The 1st quarter was very even with only a point separating the teams. Tim Stringer and veteran Jason Rowe were doing well for Tant but the Mozzies looked stronger around the ground. Mt Burr grabbed a break with 7 goals to two in the 2nd term with Chris Murray on top at full forward getting well supplied by Puiatti and Nathan Muhovics on the ball. Tant reduced the margin in the 3rd quarter but still trailed by 13 points. Rugged Chris Perry was strong at the stoppages for Tant but Mt Burr still had more contributors. Despite kicking only one goal in the last quarter Mt Burr went on to win by 7 points. Scott Gamble, Puiatti and Muhovics were best for the Mozzies and Murray booted 6 goals. Stringer, Rowe and Perry did all the heavy work for Tant.
Port MacDonnell easily defeated Kongorong by 69 points to stay on top. After an even 1st quarter Port Mac stepped up the pace and kept Kongorong to just 4 goals in the last 3 quarters whilst they slotted through 15. Dylan Bromley booted 5 goals to be high in Port Mac’s best along with Matt Byrne and Will McDonald.
Nangwarry overcame a slow start to beat Kalangadoo by 19 points in an uninspiring game. Straighter kicking for goal in the 2nd half helped the Saints keep the lead whilst Kalangadoo wasted chances.
Glencoe thrashed wooden spoon candidate Robe by 156 points but it still won’t be enough to help them play finals. Robe never threatened as Glencoe piled on 19 goals after ½ time. Zacc Cocks booted 7 goals and Clay von Duve 6 for Glencoe.

DRAWN MATCH AT GLENCOE, PORT MAC FINALLY BEATEN
Round 11 report - July 2, 2012
At Glencoe it was so dark that the lights were on before ¾ time. Tantanoola had looked the better side in the 1st half and increased their to almost 5 goals in the 3rd quarter with heady play from veteran rover Jason Rowe and powerful forward Kym Dodd who finished with 6 goals. In heavy rain, Glencoe slogged away late and slowly reduced the margin to just 4 points at ¾ time. Small men Simon Brook, Nathan McEachern won plenty of the ball and kicked goals as well. The last quarter was a slog to the finish and Glencoe may have got a win but for some indifferent goal-kicking. Tant were struggling to hang on and in the end settled for a draw with both sides very tired. Glencoe’s best were Zacc Cocks, Brook, Adam Creek and Matt Childs. Jason Rowe stood out for Tant in the wet and Dodd was strong at full forward.
Port MacDonnell, the only undefeated team in the MSE, came unstuck in the wet conditions against Mt Burr. The Mozzies led at every change and were never seriously challenged. Playing good wet weather football they took control early through on-ballers Clint Gallio and Dylan Gamble, Josh Wallis in defence was a constant stumbling block as Port Mac tried to go forward. Mt Burr led by 13 points at quarter-time and pushed further ahead in the second as Port Mac struggled around the mid-field. Mt Burr booted 5 goals to two in the 3rd term and had the game under control. Their forwards always looked capable of scoring whereas Port Mac’s were hardly sighted. In the final term Mt Burr again outscored Port Mac to win by 43 points. Gallio, Dylan Gamble, Wallis and Nathan Muhovics were best for Mt Burr but it was a strong effort. Port Mac struggled for better players but Steve Noble, Ryan Fox and Matt Byrne battled hard.
Hatherleigh handed Robe another thrashing, this time by 102 points. Robe managed only 2 goals for the day and now are firmly anchored on the bottom. Jason Faulkner, athletic Jack Sullivan and Tom Bell played well and Matt Faulkner booted 5 goals for Hatherleigh.
Kongorong easily accounted for Nangwarry in a lack lustre game by 90 points but made no impression on the top four. The Hawks slammed through nine last quarter goals as Nangwarry went missing. Major goal kickers were Jon Simkin and Sam McCracken with five each whilst Bronson Saffin, Wes Milne and Chris Shawcross played well in the wet for Kongorong.

ROUND TEN REPORT WITH TERRY WILLOUGHBY
Round 10 news - June 25, 2012
Games in MSE football went pretty much expected although wet conditions helped keep the margins to less than some of recent rounds. Port MacDonnell remain the only undefeated side after stifling the life out of Glencoe. Straighter kicking would have ended the contest by quarter time for Glencoe but Port Mac led by only 36 points. Big man Will McDonald and defender Zack Williams were dominant for the Bay and rugged Ben O’Dine won plenty of possessions around the stoppages. Glencoe battled back in the 2nd quarter to trail by 25 points at ½ time with Zac Cocks lively on the forward line, he finished with 3 goals, and young ruckman Lachlan Medhurst also did well. Port Mac took over again in the 3rd term but were plagued by wayward kicking for goal, kicking only 4-9 for the quarter but they also kept Glencoe to just 1 goal and the margin was out to 45 points. Glencoe were unable to get any closer against the top side and Port Mac won quite easily by 60 points. Williams, McDonald, O’Dine and Ben McGregor were best for Port Mac. Glencoe’s best were Zac Cocks, Medhurst and Gosden with not much from the others.
Tantanoola were another team who failed to convert their scoring chances into goals. They should been further in front after having most of the play in the 1st quarter but led by only 20 points. This allowed Hatherleigh to stay in the game with 3 goals to one before ½ time. Tantanoola still couldn’t put Hatherleigh away in the 3rd term despite having most of the play. Rugged Chris Perry and Lyndon Smith were winning lots of kicks and Dustin Knaggs did well in defence but Hatherleigh clung on. The challenge faded in the last quarter when Tant booted 5 goals to two and put the result beyond doubt with Hatherlaigh dropping to 4th spot but still well clear the next best.
Kongorong and Kalangadoo had the closest game of the day with the lead changing hands in each quarter. The Magpies booted 6 goals to have their best start for sometime but leaked 5 goals at the other end. Kongorong were better in attack with Simkin, Cowell and Matt Killey each kicking 3 goals to give their team a 7 point lead. Kalangadoo battled back in the 3rd quarter to lead narrowly by 4points at the last change but looked to be tiring. Kogorong finished better with 4 goals to one to win by 16 points but well outside the top 4. Shawcross returned to his best form for Kongorong, Wes Milne and Bronson Saffin played well in the heavy conditions. Mt Burr raced to a 33 point lead at quarter-time with full forward Chris Murray and Ben Flood prominent. Scoring was more difficult in the 2nd term but Nangwarry could get no closer. Mt Burr controlled most of the play after ½ time but Nangwarry were more competitive. With the result never in doubt Mt Burr coasted in the last quarter to win by 59 points. Veteran Scott Bevan, Ben Flood with 3 goals, Josh Wallis and Clint Gallio were best for the Mozzies. Nathan Reeves with 4 goals played strongly all day for Nangwarry.

ROUND NINE REPORT WITH TERRY WILLOUGHBY
JUNE 18, 2012
The gulf between top and bottom was further exposed in MSE football with 4th placed Mt Burr thrashing 6th placed Kalangadoo by 73 points. The Mozzies ended any semblance of a contest by booting 11 goals to 2 in the 1st quarter. Key forwards Jack Gregory and Chris Murray booted 7 and 6 goals a piece and Mt Burrs’ mid-fielders ran around opponents as if they were witches’ hats. The lead blew out to 100 points at ¾ time. The Mozzies lost some interest in proceedings in the last quarter and allowed Kalangadoo to boot 8 junk-time goals which gave an air of respectability on the scoreboard but not on the ground. Dylan Gamble and fellow on-ballers Josh Wallis and Clint Gallio ran amok for the Mozzies.
Tantanoola added to Robe’s woes with a 71 point belting. Last years grand finalists struggled to stay in touch even without big games from Tant’s goal-kicking stars. Ash Bryant filled the goal breach nicely and finished with 6, wingman Tyson McGrath, Lyn Smith and rugged Chris Perry brushed the opposition aside as Tant cruised to another easy win. Dylan Coxon as ever, was Robes’ best, John Dunn tried hard and young Jordan Briggs is an impressive talent.
Nangwarry caused a boilover when they defeated a disappointing Glencoe by 25 points. Glencoe had plenty to play for but the Saints were more determined. They trailed by a goal at the long break but outscored Glencoe to lead by 13 points near 3/4time. The Lindner brothers, Brett and Rick were snapping at the heels of Glencoe and Matt Fatchen gave them a target at half forward. They kepoint the pressure going in the last term and Glencoe made no impression. Alistair Scott with 6 goals was Glencoe’s only forward to show out and the Murphies are now two games and a big percentage away from 4th spot.
Port MacDonnell proved far too good for third placed Hatherleigh and won by 46 points. The Eagles are being carried by too few with Jack Sullivan and Tylah Saunders again high in their best. Hatherleigh by only scoring 1-8 after half-time won’t win many games. Port Mac had stronger forwards and displayed better teamwork throughout and increased their lead at every change. Pat Noonan, Ben O’Dine and fellow mid fielder Ben McGregor continually won the ball to be best for Port Mac.

BIG MARGINS AGAIN IN MSE
Round 8 Report - June 4, 2012
Hatherleigh charged to a 38 point lead by quarter time but were unable to extend it by the final siren. Sneath, Campbell and Tom Bell were handy around goals particularly before ½ time but Nangwarry kept whacking away and matched the Eagles on the scoreboard over the last 3 quarters. Tylah Saunders was best for Hatherleigh ahead of Dale Fabris and Jack Sullivan. The same old names bobbed up for Nangwarry in Jason Manninen, Brett Lindner and Matt Fatchen but you can’t give better teams a 6 goal start.
Mt Burr were never in danger against Kongorong and did as they liked with key forwards Murray, Dylan Gamble and Adam Weise kicking 15 goals between them. A powerful on-ball and mid-field brigade kepointbelting the ball forward to see the goals mount up and the lead ballooned to 88 points by ¾ time. The Mozzies met only token opposition and slammed on another 12 goals in the last quarter to win by 129 points with Gamble, Weise and Nathan Muhovics heading the best players but the return of Chris Puiatti was the most heartening sign.
Glencoe had a chance to have a huge win over Kalangadoo but sprayed scoring shots everywhere. A lead of 23 points after a dominant 2nd quarter was a poor reward. They found their range briefly in the 3rd quarter and had the game wrapped up with a 47 point lead. The yips re-appeared with 2-12 in the last quarter but in didn’t matter as Kalangadoo were powerless to stop them. Zac Cocks 5 and Ali Scott 4 kicked the major share of the goals and Josh Wilson and Simon Brook collected plenty of kicks around stoppages. Kalangadoo veterans Brian Casey and Michael Jones were best for the losers. Glencoe winners by 63 points.
Robe suffered another thrashing, this time from undefeated Port MacDonnell by 130 points. Big men Will McDonald and Rohan Povey gave their on-ballers an armchair ride and strong marking forward Dylan Bromley booted 5 goals as did Joe Noonan as Port Mac won easily and remain on top.

NANGWARRY END LONG LOSING STREAK
Round 7 report - May 29, 2012
Nangwarry broke an 18 month losing streak in the MSE when they outlasted fellow struggler Robe to win by 12 points. The game was close all day but never of a high standard and Nangwarry nearly blew their chances with poor kicking and trailed by 2 points at ¾ time. They still sprayed their shots in the last quarter but did enough to win. The Lindner brothers, Brett and and Ricky worked tirelessly to keep Nangwarry in it and Ben Dinnison and Matt Fatchen bobbed up with vital goals. Robe’s best were John Dunn and ruckman Dylan Coxon.
Port MacDonnell ended Tantanoola’s unbeaten run in emphatic style by 94 points. The Bay boys should have been miles in front by ¼ time but wasted many chances. Tant slowly closed the gap but still trailed by 32 points and weren’t being allowed into the game. Port Mac dominated the 2nd half, adding 12 goals to Tant’s paltry two and won easily. Defenders Brad Stephens and Ben O’Dine smothered the Tant forwards and Will McDonald controlled the aerial duels and stoppages for Port Mac. Tantanoola scarcely threatened.
Hatherleigh easily defeated Kalangadoo by 68 points. Jase Bateman and Joe Campbell booted 4 goals each whilst Tylah Saunders and Jack Sullivan were too mobile and clever around the midfield.
Erratic Glencoe returned to winners list by thrashing Kongorong. The 1st half saw the lead change hands several times but Glencoe led narrowly by 8 points. Kongorong were outplayed all over the ground when Glencoe added 7 unanswered goals in the 3rd quarter and went further ahead in the last to win by 79 points. Speedy Simon Brook and skipper Josh Wilson did the damage as on-ballers and returnee Matt Sinkunas booted 3 goals to boost the Glencoe morale. Kongorong punctured badly after ½ time with only Wes Milne and Bernie Bouchier battling it out.

ROUND SIX REPORT - MAY 21, 2012
Tantanoola continued on their merry way by belting Nangwarry by 142 points in MSE football. Nine goals in the first quarter ended any hope of a contest as Tant did as they liked. Three goal-kicking forwards in James Varcoe, Sam Tincknell and Matt Pilmore with eight, eight and seven goals each had a feast. Tim Stringer roamed around gathering kicks with no pressure, Josh McRostie and Ash Bryant provided mountains of chances as Tant pounded the Saints.
Robe had their 1st win but survived a last quarter surge from Kalangadoo to win by 13 points. The Roosters led from the start but were not convincing despite being 40 points up at ¾ time. Kalangadoo edged closer with 5 goals in the last quarter but Robe hung on. Jaryd Dawson booted 7 valuable goals but it was big Dylan Coxon who led the best players. Battling Ben Walker and Jesse McPhail tried hard for Kalangadoo but they still have only one win.
Glencoe’s horror season continued with a 68 point mauling from Mt Burr. They haven’t overcome the goal-kicking yips for weeks and the Mozzies made them pay dearly for the inaccuracy. Mt Burr led by 22 points at ½ time but were much better in attack thereafter with Jack Gregory and Chris Murray booting 5 goals each whilst quality small men Clint Gallio and Dylan Ridley fed off Dylan Gamble’s strong work around the stoppages. Mark Keiselbach in the ruck tried extremely hard for Glencoe but they were outclassed.
Hatherleigh survived a scare from Kongorong to win by 19 points. The Hawks held a 23 point lead at ½ time and looked set to cause an upset. Hatherleigh with athletic Jack Sullivan and Matt Fabris lifted and veteran Simon Beggs finished with 5 goals. Kongorong still led by 2 points at ¾ time but Hatherleigh had the momentum and finished strongly with 5 goals to 2 in the last quarter. Tantanoola remain undefeated and on top but the bottom four have only 3 wins between them and little hope.

TANTANOOLA BREAK FREE IN LAST TERM
Round 5 report - May 14, 2012
A resurgent Kalangadoo matched lead leader Tantanoola for three quarters before fading in the last. Straight kicking kept the Magpies in touch with former East Gambier player Pat Hatch and veteran Michael Jones having plenty of touches and Chris Mules effective with five goals. Tantanoola shook off their opponents and in a dominant last quarter booted eight goals to two and win running away by 54 points. Ash Bryant around the packs and Sam Tincknell seven goals up forward were Tant’s best.
Robe copped another shellacking at the hands of Kongorong with Jon Simkin booting 11 goals for the Hawks. The writing was on the wall by quarter time and Kongorong were never seriously challenged thereafter. Simkin, Brad Cordy and Nick Ham were best for Kongorong. Robe had only battlers.
Port MacDonnell crushed winless Nangwarry after an even 1st quarter to win by 101 points. Forwards Chad Parish and Mal Lewis kicked 6 goals each as Port Mac bombarded the goalfront. Will McDonald had his best game for the season in the ruck and Ben McGregor won plenty of kicks around the packs. Veteran little man Brett Lindner tried hard for Nangwarry.
Hatherleigh very nearly commited football suicide, kicking just 9 points in the 1st quarter against Mt Burr. The Mozzies continued to lead in the 2nd term but gradually Hatherleigh closed in. Mt Burr lost the lead in the threerd quarter when Hatherleigh’s goal kicking straightened. Forward Brett Sneath was in good touch and finished with 6 goals and the Fabris boys, Matt and Dale played well for Hatherligh who finished strongly over a tired Mt Burr to win by 19 points. Clint Gallio with four goals, Dylan Ridley and Nathan Muhovics were best for Mt Burr.

WORRYING SIGNS IN MSE THRASHINGS
Round 4 report - May 7, 2012
The closest margin this weekend was 49 points which indicates the gulf between the top and bottom halves of the ladder. Hatherleigh snuffed out an early challenge from Glencoe and went further ahead at every change. Matt Fabris was best for the Eagles, Tom Bell impressed with 4 goals and veteran Simon Beggs booted three. Glencoe were outplayed after quarter-time with only Mark Kieselbach and Josh Wilson showing much resistance.
Port MacDonnell destroyed Kalangadoo to the tune of 177 points to remain undefeated along with Tantanoola.
Mt Burr also carried out a demolition job on last years grand finalist Robe. Full forward Chris Murray booted six and Dylan Gamble six as the Mozzies dominated every position on the ground. At least the Robe players got used to seeing their opponent’s numbers as they were led to every contest in the 157 point hiding.
Tantanoola continued on their merry way with an easy 64 point win over Kongorong. The Tigers had plenty of goal-kicking forwards with Sam Tincknell leading the way with 5. Coach Tim Stringer again had a feast of possessions and Will Fleming played well. Kongorong had battlers in Sean Farrell, Brad Cordy and Bron Saffin but they lacked support.

BIG MARGINS IN ROUND 3
APRIL 30, 2012
Big margins were the order of the day in MSE football with triple premiership winning Mt Burr getting a belting from Tantanoola by 83 points. The Tant Tigers dream start was on show from the 1st bounce when they led by 30 points. Coach Tim Stringer again had a bag of possessions and former coach Jason Rowe also had a great game. The margin blew out to 43 points at ½ time with Mt Burr making no impression. Tant kepoint up the pressure with Varcoe and Bryant booting 6 and 4 goals respectively. They had many good players and despite 5 late goals to Mt Burr they were never threatened. Stringer, Rowe and Josh Mcrostie stood out for Tant whilst Mt Burr struggled to have any all game contributors.
Kalangadoo belted Nangwarry by 126 points with 11 players getting in on the goal-kicking. Matt Doody led the way with 6 and Jack Casey 5. Veteran Brian Casey was best for the Magpies who did as they liked.
Port MacDonnell overcame a determined Kongorong after ½ time to win by 29 points. The Hawks made a good start to lead by 16 points at quarter time but Port Mac reeled them and took a one goal lead at the main break. A greater spread of good players enabled them to kick away in the 3rd term with forwards Lewis and Bromley getting among the goals. The last quarter was more of a struggle but Port Mac were too good. Ben McGregor was best with strong support from Matt Byrne, Rohan Povey and Bromley. Kongorong’s best were John Simkin, Bronson Saffin and Brad Cordy but most faded after a good start.
Glencoe bounced back after last weeks’ disaster with Matt Sinkunas back in the side to boot 5 goals. They never allowed Robe a sniff of victory and kepoint the Roosters to just 2 goals after ½ time whilst adding 9 of their own. Ruckman Mark Kieselbach excelled for Glencoe, onballer Josh Wilson, Sinkunas and pint-size Nathan McEachern who booted 4 goals were best. It was Robes 2nd big loss and they hardly looked like a finals prospect.

UPSETS IN MID SOUTH EAST
REPORTS TERRY WILLOUGHBY
ROUND 2 - APRIL 23, 2012
Consistency went out the window after last week when Port MacDonnell came from 21 points down at ½ time to run over seemingly invincible Mt Burr by 26 points in the MSE. The Mozzies started slowly but got going in the 2nd quarter and raced to the lead with Chris Puiatti in good form around the stoppages and speedy Dylan Ridley doing well across the forward line, defender Will Whitty was driving out many attacks. The game changed quickly in the 3rd term when Port Mac piled on 6 goals to lead by 5 points at the last change but they had all the momentum. They went on with the job by adding another 4 goals as Mt Burr faded and won convincingly by 26 points.
Kongorong easily defeated Nangwarry in a lack lustre game. After a promising start the wheels got wobbly for Nangwarry who managed only 2 goals after quarter-time. Kongorong got better as the game wore on and slammed through 7 last quarter goals to win by 84 points. Brad Cordy was best afield for Kongorong and Chris Shawcross again impressed. The dark clouds have appeared early for Nangwarry.
Tantanoola thrashed Glencoe by 91 points and won just about every position on the ground. Ball magnet and coach Tim Stringer was unstoppable and won possessions allover the ground and had strong support from Zac Walker, Ash Bryant and rugged Chris Perry. Glencoe had little to speak of.
Hatherleigh, inglorious last week, led throughout over highly rated Robe. A 23 point lead at quarter-time had the Roosters chasing from there-on although they had clawed back the margin to 15 points at ½ time. Jase Bateman with 4 goals was best for Hatherleigh along with Tylah Saunders, Matt Faulkner and Matt Fabris. Big man Dylan Coxon tried hard to lift Robe but lacked support.

REIGNING PREMIER MT BURR START OFF WITH BIG WIN
TANT GIVES NEW COACH A DREAM START
by Terry Willoughby, April 16, 2012
Tantanoola gave new coach Tim Stringer a dream start when they ran over a disappointing Hatherleigh after quarter-time. The Eagles had plenty of scoring chances but kicked poorly and Tant took control in the 2nd term and raced to a 39 point lead. Tant had more efficient forwards and Matt Pilmore booted 7 goals and veteran Jason Rowe got three. Hatherleigh only reduced the gap by 2 points in the 3rd quarter but Tantanoola kicked right away in the last. Dustin Knaggs, Pilmore and Adam Lindner were best for Tant. Hatherleigh struggled ahead of centre and their best were only battlers.
Mt Burr demolished Nangwarry by 152 points, signaling to others that they will just as powerful as in recent years. A 10 goal first quarter put Nangwarry out of business and despite battling hard in the middle quarters were smashed again when the Mozzies rammed through 12 goals to finish with a mammoth 35-16. Jack Gregory starred at the goal-front with 12 majors but it was Dylan Gamble, Chris Puiatti and Scott Gamble around the midfield who kepoint sending the ball forward.
Kongorong led all day against Kalangadoo to win by 18 points. They held a 4 goal lead at the 1st change and Kalangadoo played catch up footy from there on. Kongorong eased down in the finish. Chris Shawcross, a recruit was best afield and last years star Brad Cordy again played well. Former East Gambier player Sam McCracken booted 4 goals.Tthe same old reliable names of Brian Casey, Chris Mules and Ben Walker bobbed up for Kalangadoo.
Port MacDonnell charged out of the blocks and led Glencoe a merry dance with Ben McGregor dominating around the stoppages. Port Mac looked set for a big win when they held a 44 point lead at halftime. Glencoe slowly got back into the game with a 6 goal 3rd quarter to close the margin to 17 points at the last change. They had some momentum but Port Mac tightened the game and goals were hard to get in the finish with most players feeling the warm conditions. Port Mac held on by 7 points. McGregor was best ahead Zac Williams and Adam Taylor. Rugged Adam Price played strongly for Glencoe along with Zac Cocks and speedy Simon Brook but they paid dearly for their slow start.

MOZZIES BUZZ OFF WITH MSE FLAG
by Terry Willoughby
The last of the South East grand finals got under way in fine conditions at Tantanoola and Robe kicked to the clubroom end aided by a slight breeze. Mt Burr used the ball better in the early play but scores were hard to come by. Coxon was winning the knocks for Robe but Mt Burr reduced his effectiveness by taking them away. Quicker players across the midfield were a problem for Robe who wasted chances before Ben Parish got the 1st goal but he had been forced to roam far for his kicks. Veteran Adam Weise was a good target at full forward for Mt Burr in a game of defences. Robe skipper Tom Mount regularly cut off Mt Burr attacks but late goals gave the Mozzies a 2 point lead.
Robe started to dominate the play but were indirect and failed to put the score on the board whilst the Mt Burr defence did well. Star Mt Burr on-baller Chris Puiatti was winning strongly around the packs and at ground level and Nathan Muhovics used his pace to break up many Robe attacks. Goals late in the 2nd term put Mt Burr in front and Robe had used up plenty of petrol for no reward in a low scoring but not high standard game.
Mt Burr grabbed a strong hold on the game early in the 3rd quarter as Puiatti and Muhovics continued to bring others into the game and coach Mark Kruger goaled twice from 50m penalties after undisciplined play by Robe defenders. Mt Burr showing more play-on style, goaled again through Jack Gregory, who had barely had a touch. Robe appeared to be in trouble with Lesslie doing well at centre half-back for the Mozzies. A couple of clangers by Mt Burr allowed Robe in and Bigmore goaled twice to put them behind by 14 points. Robe raised another effort through Tom Mount in the mid-field and Parish marked strongly for a goal and the game came alive with Mt Burr just holding on to a 3 point lead at ¾ time.
The game looked set for a close finish as play went between backlines with Robe looking dangerous but it was Gregory who marked and goaled to steady Mt Burr but Ryan Dew did the same for Robe who trailed by 2 points. Mt Burr lifted in the middle where Puiatti again won the clearances and a strong mark by Weise resulted in a goal and suddenly Robe looked tired. Clint Gallio, handy all day with good disposals goaled after a long run along the scoreboard flank and Gregory after muffing a couple of chances, goaled and Mt Burr led by 29 points. Robe had no gas left and Mt Burr controlled play through to the finish. The Mozzies finished with a 6 goal last quarter to win quite comfortably and raise the premiership cup for the 3rd time in 3 years in a row.
Chris Puiatti, was a deserving winner of the best player medal for Mt Burr, ahead of Nathan Muhovics, Clint Gallio, Andrew Ferguson and Weise. Robe, who only managed more than one goal in any of the 4 quarters, were best served by Tom Mount, Jaymen Fletcher, Ben Parish and Dylan Coxon.
