CRYSTAL BROOK & ORROROO HAVE DRAW, BROUGHTON MUNDOORA STAY 4TH…….Tuesday August 21, 2007
In what could be a preview of this years Northern Areas Grand Final, the two top sides side of the competition battled out a draw at Crystal Brook. Crystal Brook started the game well and skipped away to a 13 point lead at half time.

BROUGHTON MUNDOORA UPSETS CRYSTAL BROOK.......Wednesday August 15, 2007
In one of the upsets of the season, Broughton Mundoora defeated League leader Crystal Brook by 47 points at Mundoora. The Eagles were helped to an extent by Crystal Brook’s poor kicking, leading at half time by 36 points – 8.2 to 1.8, but won the second half with some inaccuracy themselves kicking 5.8 to 3.9. Avan Ireland and Matthew Gale were best in the teams sixth win of the season with Shannon Wilson kicking four goals. Matthew Jackman and Andrew Wright were best for Crystal Brook, Jamie Kemp restricted to just one goal – he now has 89 for the season.
Orroroo took advantage of the loss by Crystal Brook, to grab spot after their win over BMW at Booloeroo Centre. Orroroo powered away in the opening term kicking 6.1 to 0.2 and were far too good for their opponents, with Jonathon Byerlee and Will Bennett best. BMW’s best were Zac Murphy and Sam Keller.
Southern Flinders recorded their ninth win of the season with a 19 point victory over Jamestown/Peterborough at Gladstone. Brett and Nathan Cunningham were their best, with Scott Brand and John McKenna kicking three goals each. For Jamestown/Peterborough, who have been fairly competitive in the past month, Bernard and Nick McInerney were their best.
This week is the final round in the NAFA, Crystal Brook hosts Orroroo, in the minor premiership decider. BMW has to beat South Flinders at Booleroo Centre to keep its faint finals chances alive – hoping that Jamestown/Peterborough can knock off Broughton/Mundoora at Port Broughton.

Meanwhile Orroroo had to work overtime to secure the points at home against bottom side Jamestown/Peterborough. The visitors jumped the gun in the first term, gaining a near match winning lead of 33 points at the first change. They had every right to sense victory at the last change with a 19 point lead, but Orroroo did what they had to in the last term, adding 4.5 to 1.0 to secure a narrow six point win. Will Bennett (three goals) and Josh Clark were best for the victors, while for the valiant Jamestown/Peterborough, Ryan Simpson and John Arnold played well.
Despite trailing at half time, Southern Flinders proved too good for Broughton Mundoora winning by 33 points at Wirrabara. 8.7 to 4.5 in the decisive third term proved the difference, ensuring Southern Flinders their eight win of the season – their best were Matthew Woolford and Nathan Cunningham, while for the Eagles, Nick Hewett and Ben O’Donohue were best, with Kane Allen kicking three goals to move to 70 for the season.
With two rounds to play, the top three is set, with Crystal Brook and Orroroo set to play in the Major Semi, while the Elimination Final will be Southern Flinders versus either Broughton Mundoora or the improved BMW, who are both on five wins. One fancies the Eagles will keep fourth spot, as they have Crystal Brook and bottom placed Jamestown to play while BMW faces Orroroo and Southern Flinders.

Andrew Milne to coach BMW in the NAFA in 2007
Andrew Milne has been appointed to coach the BMW (Booleroo Centre/Melrose/Wilmington) Football Club for season. Milne was the clubs leading goalkicker in 2006, with 58 goals.
Milne replaces David “Freddie” Freeman who had coached the club for the previous three seasons winning the NAFA flag in 2005. Freeman was not reappointed for 2007, despite a record of 37 wins and 16 losses. BMW had finished Minor Premiers in 2006, but losses in the Qualifying Final to Crystal Brook (35 points) and the Preliminary Final to Broughton/Mundoora (9 points) may well have contributed to that.
LYNDON PRIOR TO COACH SOUTHERN FLINDERS IN 2007
Lyndon will coach the A Grade in 2007 and has had the following A Grade coaching experience: 1992-93 - Two Wells, 1998-99 Crystal Brook and 2000-02 Port Pirie Lions. He is also a four time Premiership player with Two Wells and played in one flag with Virginia
