Rain came early in the Grand Final at Kongorong and reduced the game to a battle of attrition rather than a game of skill. Hatherleigh were at their best in the 1st quarter when the ball was relatively dry and jumped to a 22 point lead at the 1st change. Port Mac had their chances in the term but strong work on the backline by Todd Watson and Josh Sandland restricted them and gave the on-ballers in Tylah Saunders and Jack Sullivan plenty of scope through the mid-field.

Port Mac hit back strongly in the 2nd term and restricted Hatherleigh’s output but took nearly all quarter to get on terms. Will McDonald started to have an impact and Ryan Fox gave good support. Two late goals enabled Port Mac to hit the front just before ½ time and lead by 9 points with a bit of momentum. The persistent rain made conditions difficult and scoring was reduced to a minimum as Port Mac held on. There was never more than a kick between the teams and every score was crucial but the defences of both teams fought hard to restrict their opposition.

Port Mac managed only three points for the 3rd term as Hatherleigh crept closer to trail by just 2 points at the last change. Todd Watson and Sandland were playing strongly on the Hatherleigh backline and Saunders continued to gather possessions but the effectivness of kicks was negated by equally resolute Port Mac defence.

Both sides looked tired as the last quarter began but Hatherleigh looked slightly better with the weeks rest. Port Mac struggled to go forward but on-ballers Jordan Zietz and Ben McGregor were doing well around the stoppages. Port Mac’s inability to get goals after the ½ time break was telling and whilst Hatherleigh also struggled they were having more of the play and reached the lead with two last quarter goals.

 Port Macs’ only 2nd half goal again had the scores within a kick but with goals at a premium Hatherleigh clung to the lead to win by just 5 points in a low scoring Grand final. Todd Watson was named best on ground for Hatherleigh and won the Stan Jones Memorial Medal. Others to do well for Hatherleigh were Saunders, Sandland, Jack Sullivan, Tom Agnew in the ruck and Ciaran Buckley. Port mac were gallant in defeat with their best being Ryan Fox, Will Mcdonald, Ben McGregor, Zietz, Adam Taylor and Joel Feast. It was Hatherleigh’s 4th flag since 2002 in a roller coaster decade. Hatherleigh 9-10, five point winners over Port Mac 9-5.

PORT MACDONNELL TOO STEADY FOR GLENCOE IN PRELIM FINAL

by Terry Willoughby – 9 September 2013

Glencoe kicked with the aid of the breeze in the 1st quarter of the Prelim final but were unable to gain any advantage with Port Mac matching them goal for goal to hold a narrow  one point lead at quarter-time. Medal winner Will McDonald was deployed in defence for Port Mac and despite not dominating he spoiled strongly and cut out the influence of the Glencoe forwards.

Port Mac edged ahead in the 2nd term with mid-fielders Ben O’Dine, Ben McGregor and Ryan Fox all contributing strongly. Youngster Jordan Zietz was another causing Glencoe headaches around the centre with pace and sure ball-handling and Port Mac went to ½ time with a 14 point lead.

Glencoe started the 2nd half positively but their kicking was not as precise and Port Mac constantly picked off many forward moves from the Murphies. Glencoe forward Mick McRae narrowly missed shots for goal which could have put his team on terms at ¾ time but Port Mac now held a 20 point margin. Marcus von Duve, Zacc Cocks and Kingsley Clark were working hard to lift Glencoe but Port Mac seemed to have all the answers.

The last quarter was as tightly contested as the first three but Port Mac continued to frustrate the Glencoe forwards with strong, disciplined defence led by McDonald and co. Port Mac kicked only 2 goals in the final quarter but Glencoe could do no better and only reduced the margin to 19 points and bow out of the premiership race. Best for Port Mac were Ben O’Dine, Ben McGregor, Fox, McDonald and Zietz. For Glencoe, Marcus von Duve, Clark, Cocks, Lachlan Medhurst and Adam Price. Port Mac 9-11 too solid for Glencoe 6-10 with a chance for back to back flags.

HATHERLEIGH OVERRUN PORT MACDONNELL IN LAST QUARTER

2 September 2013 – by Terry Willoughby

Port Mac looked good early with medalist Will McDonald and leading goal-kicker Dylan Bromley  threatening around goals. The Hatherleigh defenders were battling hard but Port Mac held a two goal lead at quarter-time.

The Eagles gathered some momentum in the 2nd quarter with classy mid-fielder Tylah Saunders being influential and Todd Watson slowing Port Mac’s progress. Hatherleigh could have been ahead at ½ time but for poor kicking for goal and Port Mac led by 5 points. The 3rd quarter was goal for goal but Hatherleigh were again wasteful but now Matt Faulkner and Matt Fabris were doing well but Port Mac held on through Luke McIntyre and Damien O’Dine in the backline.

There was only a point the difference at ¾ time with Port Mac in front but almost out of gas. Hatherleigh took control in the last quarter with their quality players having great influence. Small forward Brett Sneath chipped in with goals as Hatherleigh ran out winners by 22 points. Best for Eagles were Matt Faulkner, Saunders, Fabris, Todd Watson and Tom Agnew. Port Mac’s better players were Damien O’Dine, Joel Feast, McIntyre, Tim Sullivan and McDonald with 6 goals.

WILL McDONALD WINS MAIL MEDAL

The 2013 Mid South Eastern Football League Mail Medal has been won by Port MacDonnell ruckman Will McDonald, his third medal in 4 years. The high marking ruckman dominated many games throughout the season and is the key to Port MacDonnell’s Grand Final chances in 2013. He won with a total of 27 votes from Mt Burr on-baller Clint Gallio on 21 votes.

GLENCOE WIN THROUGH TO PRELIM FINAL
25 August 2013

Glencoe got off to a flying start and led Tantanoola by 28 points after a five goal burst in the first quarter. Key forwards Alex Hentschke and Mick McCrae were proving difficult to contain and ruckman Lachlan Medhurst was winning at the stoppages and around the ground. Tant surged back into the game with 6 goals in the 2nd quarter with veteran Jason Rowe and Rob Versace up forward sparking them up. 
Glencoe led by three points at the start of the 2nd half as the game tightened up and each side scored 4 goals in an even 3rd quarter but Glencoe kept the noses in front by just 6 points at ¾ time. Tant looked to be tiring a little but straight kicking kept them in touch as Glencoe started to win much more of the ball but wasted it with wayward kicking near goal. 
Medhurst, Hentschke and Zacc Cocks continued to push Glencoe forward and with good work from Jamie Edwards, Adam Price and Clark they went on to win by 15 points and eliminate Tant from the finals race. Best for Glencoe were Medhurst, Hentschke wiyh 5 goals, Edwards, Cocks, Clark and Price. Jason Rowe was best for Tant along with Knaggs, Versace with 6 goals, Cam Saint and Raegan Clarke.

TANTANOOLA REGAIN TOP 4 SPOT IN LAST GASP WIN 
by Terry Willoughby – Sunday 18 August 2013

Tantanoola had been in the top four for most of the season but Mt Burr had tipped them out the week before and Tant had to defeat top side Hatherleigh to regain the spot. It didn’t look likely when Hatherleigh booted 5 goals to one in the 2nd quarter to lead by 13 points on a day where goals were hard to get. Matt Faulkner and star mid-fielder Tylah Saunders were playing well for the Eagles whilst small forward Brett Sneath was good around the goal-front. Veteran little man Jason Rowe sparked Tant in the 3rd quarter along with Cameron Saint and Lyndon Smith and they added three goals to Hatherlaeigh’s one and lead by 5 points at the last change. 
With their season on the line Tant matched everything Hathereigh had and held on to score narrowly by 7 points knowing that Mt Burr had to win against 2nd placed Port Mac or exit the finals race. Weather conditions had a large bearing on all games in the lower South East and this was no excepointion at Mt Burr. Port Mac led for most of the day without ever being completely on top as Mt Burr fought hard to stay in contention. Port Mac were in front at every change but the margins were only 4, 7 and 8 points. Star bigman Will McDonald was a hurdle that Mt Burr couldn’t get over and he also provided a strong forward target with 4 goals and with Dylan Bromley also getting 3 they had the Mt Burr defenders under the pump all day. 
The Mozzies couldn’t find a reliable goal-kicker as the Port Mac backman Ben and Damien O’Dine used their strength to keep the Mt Burr forwards quiet. Scoring became more difficult as the game wore on and each team managed only one goal each in the last quarter with Port Mac winning by 7 points to end Mt Burr’s finals hope. Best for Port Mac were Ryan Fox, the O’Dines, Steve Devine and Will McDonald. Brodie Hennink, Clint Gallio, Matt Lesslie and Dylan Ridley were best for the Mozzies. 
Nangwarry tasted victory for the 1st time in 2013 when they played all over a listless Kalangadoo in the 1st half and led by 40 points. The Saints had plenty of incentive after a disastrous year and they sniffed the winning breeze early. Consistent performers Matt Fatchen, Craig Hicks and Brett Lindner led the way to restrict Kalangadoos’ scoring chances. The Saints went goal-less in the 3rd term but Kalangadoo couldn’t much better and trailed by 34 points. Nangwarry kicked away in the last quarter with 3 goals to win by 39 points and get to sing the team song for the 1st time. 
Kongorong, again the disappointment team, had a 36 point win over Robe to end their year in 6th place.

MT BURR TIGHTEN GRIP ON 4TH SPOT IN MSE

11 August 2013

Mt Burr’s hold on 4th spot tightened after a 7 goal win over bottom placed Nangwarry. The Mozzies swarmed all over the winless Nangwarry in the 1st half and led by 40 points. Veteran Dale Bowering provided the unusual by booting 8 goals for Mt Burr and headed the best players from Will Lowndes, Josh and Matt Wallis. Nangwarry lifted to match Mt Burr in the 2nd half but it was too late. Brett Lindner again headed the better players from Ben Dinnison and Nathan Reeves booted 6 goals.

Port Mac swept Robe aside in the 2nd term with Dylan Bromley proving too strong near goals and Lachlan Pratt picking up the spoils, they booted 9 and 5 respectively. Robe only goaled in the 1st and 3rd quarters as Port Mac did as they liked. Talented youngster Jordan Zietz maintained his good recent form to be best for Port Mac ahead of Adam Taylor, Jack Cawthorne and Ryan Fox. Tom Pearce, Jaymen Fletcher and Jordan Pettit were best for Robe.

Tantanoola took a quarter to shake off Kongorong and keep their finals hopes alive but were not all that convincing. The Hawks had little to play for but made Tant work hard for the win. The final margin of 30 points suggests that Tant will have to play much better to upset Hatherleigh and win back 4th spot next week. On baller Lyndon Smith and ruckman Michael Bennett were best for Tant and Rob Versace booted 5 goals. The consistent Ben Drew , Bryn Weaver and Wes Milne battled hard for Kongorong.

 Hatherleigh were too good for Glencoe and went further ahead at every change. The Eagles started well with defender Marcus Bennett doing well and Sam Telfer providing a strong target up forward to boot 6 goals. Glencoe struggled for winners but strongman Adam Price, Lachy Allison and Zacc Cocks were giving everything but lacked support. Hatherleigh put the game beyond doubt with 6 goals to one in the 3rd quarter before cruising home by 48 points. Best for Hatherleigh were Matt Faulkner, Bennett, Telfer and Jason Faulkner.

MT BURR SNEAK BACK INTO THE TOP FOUR

Terry Willoughby – 4 August 2013

Winter weather had a marked effect on games especially if played near the coast. Robe ended Nangwarry’s chances of a first win when they reduced the Saints to just one goal after ½ time. Nangwarry matched Robe throughout the 1sthalf and trailed by just two points but Robe steadily increased their lead with regular good players John Dunn, Tom Pearce and coach Jaymen Fletcher leading the way. Both teams have been undermanned nearly all season but Robe went on to win by 37 points. Best for the Roosters were Dunn, Zac Deane, Everett, Fletcher and Pearce. Nangwarry’s best included Brett Lindner, Deamer, Stewart and Fatchen.

 Mt Burr made good use of the dry ball at the start against Kalangadoo and led by 42 points at quarter time. Dylan Ridley used his pace to break the game open and Clint Gallio won plenty of possessions around the mid-field as the Mozzies went further ahead at every change. Kalangadoo had little to play for but Mt Burr eyed off the 4th spot with only two rounds remaining. Ridley booted 8 goals in a best on ground effort for Mt Burr, Gallio, Jamie Little and veteran Peter Guyett also played well. Kalangadoo veteran Michael Jones battled hard and Brad Auld, Dallas Jeffree and David Vine toiled away.

Port MacDonnell nearly kicked themselves out of their clash with Tantanoola when they managed only 10 goals from 35 scoring shots. Scores were level at ½ time with Tant fighting back after conceding a 3 goal lead at quarter-time. Port Mac dominated the scoring in the 3rd term but it was mostly behinds and even though Tant didn’t score they trailed by only 36 points. Youngsters Mal Lewis, Riley Chant and Jordan Zietz were the driving force for Port Mac and ruckman Will McDonald provided plenty of opportunities. Tant lifted in the last quarter and prevented Port Mac from goaling whilst they added 5 to creep within 10 points but the siren beat them.

The loss sent Tant to 5th spot and Port Mac heaved a sigh of relief at the 7 point margin and a shot at the double chance. Lewis, Zietz, Chant and McDonald were best for Port Mac. Reliable Dustin Knaggs was best for Tant along with Adam Dodd who booted 4 goals, Brown and Tyson Mcgrath.

Glencoe easily accounted for Kongorong by 64 points and cling to 2nd spot on percentage. Kongorong managed only one goal in 3 quarters whilst Glencoe had many good players ahead of centre who bobbed up for goals against the leaky Hawk defence. Zacc Cocks was best for Glencoe ahead of big Mark Kieselbach, Brad Gosden and rugged Adam Price. Kongorong’s best were Bronson Saffin, Bryn Weaver and Dwayne Phillips but many were unsighted.

PORT MAC OUTLAST GLENCOE

28 July 2013 – Terry Willoughby

Glencoe held Port Mac scoreless in the 2nd quarter of their clash and went to ½ time with a 22 point lead and a sniff of victory. Mark Kieselbach on the ball was doing well and gritty games from Adam Creek , Trent Hawke and Brad Gosden as well rugged work by ex-coach Adam Price gave Glencoe the edge. Port Mac mounted a challenge through Will McDonald, the leagues premier bigman and youngster Jordan Zietz as they booted 5 goals to just two from Glencoe to draw level by ¾ time.

Port Mac had to work hard in the last quarter and found goals hard to get but they kicked the only 2 for the quarter and reduced Glencoe to just three points to edge away for a 14 point win. Best for Port Mac were McDonald, Zietz, Ben McGregor and Adam Taylor. For Glencoe , Hawke, Creek, Gosden and Price. The double chance now looks likely for Port Mac as Glencoe have a bye in the last round.

Kongorong put up a spirited performance against top side Hatherleigh but it wasn’t enough to get the win. The Hawks led by by 13 points at quarter time but Hatherleigh held them goal-less in the 2nd quarter and were never headed in the 2nd half. Windy conditions made goals hard to get but Hatherleigh always had a bit more class when required. Kongorong narrowed the gap by just two points in the 3rd quarter with battling Matt Killey and speedy Dwayne Phillips getting plenty of touches.

Hatherleigh controlled play in the last and although Kongorong booted two goals they couldn’t match their opponents and finished 24 points down at the final siren. Todd Watson, Albert Ellis and veteran forward Brett Sneath with 3 goals were Hatherleighs’ best. Better players for Kongorong were Bryn Weaver, Killey, Phillips and Bronson Saffin.

Tantanoola maintained their shaky hold on 4th spot by thrashing Nangwarry by 159 points. Any signs of a contest were gone early when Tant slammed on 11 goals to two by quarter time. Eighteen individual goal-kickers featured in Tant’s win and Nangwarry were powerless to stop them although Nathan Reeves did his bit by booting 5 of Nangwarry’s 8 goals.

Kalangadoo had a narrow 4 point win over fellow cellar dweller Robe who rallied strongly in the last quarter after trailing by 26 points but the siren beat them. Former Pioneer basketballer Dallas Jeffree was best for Kalangadoo ahead of coach Jason Dunn and Jarrad Kilsby. John Dunn, Tom Pearce and Zac Deane were best for Robe.

HATHERLEIGH STUMBLE AGAINST PORT MAC

23 July 2013 – Terry Willoughby

Top side Hatherleigh failed against reigning premier Port Mac in heavy weather. The battle hardened Port Mac handled the cold and wet conditions better and matched Hatherleigh in the 1st half before taking control in the last quarter to run away to a significant 33 point victory. Both teams went goal for goal in the 1st half with Hatherleigh narrowly ahead at quarter and half-time.

Playing conditions became tougher in the 3rd quarter and Port Mac with an advantage in physical strength around the packs through Will McDonald and Ben McGregor, Ben and Damien O’Dine began to get on top and lead by just 3 points but having a wind at their backs in the last quarter. Port Mac never allowed Hatherleigh to play open possession keeping football and tackled strongly at every contest to wear the Eagles down. Port Mac had their tails up and added 5 goals to nil in the last quarter for a convincing win. Dylan Bromley and Ben McGregor each booted 4 goals for Port Mac. Better players for the winners were McGregor, the O’Dine boys, Will McDonald in the ruck and classy Jordan Zietz.

Robe with only one win for the season threw everything at Mt Burr but the inability to kick goals against the wind brought about their undoing. The Mozzies jumped into the top four in recent weeks and weren’t about to give take a tumble here. Weather conditions reduced the game to survival of the fittest and that was always going to be Mt Burr with greater depointsh of talent. Trailing by just 2 points at ¾ time the Mozzies reduced Robe to a solitary point in the last quarter and added 2-8, which was enough for a 15 point win.

Josh Wallis , Nathan Muhovics relished the conditions to be best for Mt Burr along with Jack Gregory and Fiebig. For Robe, Jaymen Fletcher, Everett, Dunn and Pearce battled strongly.

Tantanoola made short work of Kalangadoo to win by 102 points. Tant raced to a 56 point lead by quarter-time and the game was over. Kalangadoo could hardly score with the wind let alone against and Tant played all over them. Sam Tincknell and veteran small man Jason Rowe each booted 4 goals for Tant whilst Lyndon Smith, Knaggs and coach Tim Stringer were high in the best players.

Glencoe were another team to win easily and make better use of the wind when it thrashed winless Nangwarry by 126 points.  Youngster Alex Hentschke booted 5 goals to be best for Glencoe ahead of Jason Bates, Lachie Allison and Tom Edwards. The regulars, Matt Fatchen and the Lindner brothers, Brett and Rick toiled away for Nangwarry.

MT BURR TIP TANTANOOLA OUT OF TOP FOUR

Mt Burr knocked Tantanoola out of the top four with 12 point win. Tantanoola led early but the Mozzies with veteran Scott Bevan and Dylan Ridley booting 5 goals each ran out winners. The Mozzies started to get on top in the 2ndquarter despite the efforts of Tant bigman Michael Bennett and held 9 point lead at ½ time.

There was never much between the teams but Mt Burr always seemed to find a way to goal when Tant threatened. Tant’s quality players were doing well but lacked support as Mt Burr clung to the lead in the last quarter to win narrowly. Dylan Ridley around the forward line was Mt Burr’s best ahead of Richard Humphries, veteran Pete Guyett and Josh Wallis. Michael Bennett, defenders Dustin Knaggs and Lyndon Smith, and coach Tim Stringer played well for Tant.

Port MacDonnell easily defeated Kongorong by 95 points. The league leaders were never in danger and should have won by much more but sprayed plenty of kicks wide of the goals. Kongorong managed only one goal after quarter-time . Youngster Jordan Zietz impressed again for Port Mac along with star ruckman Will McDonald, Ryan Fox, Joel Feast and Ben McGregor. For Kongorong the consistent Ben Drew and Matt Killey tried hard.

Hatherleigh were far too good for the winless Nangwarry and romped in by 79 points. Tylah Saunders, Todd Watson  and Jack Sullivan had too much class for Hatherleigh, who had many good players. Nangwarry could only kick goals in two quarters and must wait a bit longer for that elusive win. Glencoe charged to a 44 point lead at quarter time against arch enemy Kalangadoo and any semblance of a contest ended right there. Kalangadoo didn’t kick a goal until the 3rd quarter as Glencoe controlled play almost everywhere through Tom Edwards, Zacc Cocks and Trent Hawke. Wet conditions restricted scoring but Glencoe had more forward power than struggling Kalangadoo and won easily by 72 points.

TANTANOOLA WIN NARROWLY BUT STILL VULNERABLE

by Terry Willoughby – 30 June 2013

Tantanoola almost did the unthinkable, lose to Robe who failed to goal in the last round of MSE football. With coach Tim Stringer sidelined through injury Tant struggled to break free from a vastly more determined Robe and scraped in by just 11 points. Tant led at every change but only by a goal at ¾ time.

Big efforts from regular best players, Tom Pearce, Jaymen Fletcher and Andrew Everett enabled Robe to stay in touch . Slippery conditions made scoring difficult but Tant had just a little more talent and steadiness at the finish with Lyndon Smith and defender Dustin Knaggs leading the way.

Tant’s shaky hold on 4th spot will be severely tested next round against resurgent Mt Burr who overcame an early deficit to win over 2nd placed Glencoe. The Murphies burst away to an 8 goal 1st quarter and lead by 24 points with full forward Mick McRae proving too elusive. Mt Burr responded just as emphatically with 8 goals in the 2nd quarter to lead narrowly by 3 points at the main break but they had better teamwork through on-baller Clint Gallio and Nathan Muhovics with veteran Scott Bevan getting among the goals.

Scoring became difficult after ½ time but Mt Burr maintained control with Brodie Hennink and Tyler Stanley doing well. Both sides scored a goal each in the last quarter as Mt Burr refused to surrender their narrow lead and won by 12 points. Gallio, Stanley, Hennink and Muhovics were best for Mt Burr. Glencoe’s best were Mark Kieselbach in the ruck, McRae with 7 goals, Zacc Cocks and Lachie Allison.

Top team Hatherleigh battled the weather as well as Kalangadoo to win by 73 points, the biggest margin of the round. Quality players Tylah Saunders and Ciaran Buckley had too much skill and speed around the stoppages and continually put Hatherleigh into attack. Kalangadoo looked likely to be the 2nd MSE team to go without a goal when they had only a solitary point on the board at ¾ time but 2 last quarter goals spared them of the embarrassment.

Kongorong celebrated the 25th anniversary of their 1988 premiership with 20 point win over bottom placed Nangwarry. Nangwarry looked set to spoil the Hawks day when they led by 7 points at ½ time. Stalwarts Rick and Brett Lindner worked hard to put the Saints ahead but wayward kicking for goal would prove costly. Consistent Ben Drew and mobile forward Jason Phillips were hard to contain and Kongorong edged to the lead in the 3rd quarter by just a goal. Nangwarry battled hard in the last quarter but Kongorong were just a little better. Drew, Phillips with 5 goals and Rob Hein were best for Kongorong. Nangwarry remain winless but they are not the worst side of the bottom 3, they just can’t crack it for a win.

NO CHANGE AS TOP THREE DEMONIZE LOWER TEAMS

24 June 2013

Port MacDonnell crushed Nangwarry with a 13 goal burst in the first quarter before romping away to win by 156 points. Dylan Bromley again had a big day at the goal front to finish with 11 goals. Nangwarry had no answers to whatever Port Mac did as the lead just got greater in every quarter. Youngster Jordan Zietz was best for Port Mac ahead of Rohan Povey, Ben O’Dine and Bromley.

Best of the Nangwarry chasers were Simon Merrett, Nathan Reeves and Matt Fatchen. Kalangadoo at least had some scoreboard respectability but still finished 65 points in arrears of Kongorong. It was one of the Hawks better performances and they had 10 individual goal-kickers as they outscored Kalangadoo in every quarter. Nick Ham, Bryn Weaver and Aaron Harding were best for Kongorong whilst veteran Michael Jones, Jason Bannister and Andrew Stone tried all day for Kalangadoo.

Robe were kept goal-less by second placed Glencoe who could have won by much more than 149 points. They had strong forwards in Mick McRae and Zacc Cocks who booted 7 and 6 goals each and good contributors in Tom Edwards and Marcus von Duve but lacked a bit of will to drive to a bigger win. It was the first time in many seasons that a team hasn’t managed to score a goal in MSE football.

Hatherleigh brought Mt Burr’s winning streak to halt with a comfortable 44 point victory over the Mozzies. Mt Burr challenged strongly in the first half and trailed by only 10 points but Hatherleigh increased the tempo after that and drew clear in the last quarter. Jumping Jack Sullivan was best and booted 5 goals for the winners, Josh Sandland, on-baller Ciaran Buckley and defender Todd Watson were other good players for Hatherleigh. Josh Fiebig, Justin Nowak, mid-fielder Clint Gallio and veteran Dale Bowering were best for Mt Burr, who remain outside the top 4 on percentage.

BIG MARGINS PREVAIL AGAIN

Monday 17 June 2013 – Terry Willoughby

Forty one points was once a big win but it was the smallest margin in round 10. Port MacDonnell savaged Kalangadoo by a whopping 234 points with Dylan Bromley booting 16 goals which outstripped all losing scores in the round. Port Mac slammed through 14 goals in the 2nd term as all resistance folded for Kalangadoo.

Obviously Bromley was best for Port Mac ahead of Will McDonald and Rohan Povey but they had little opposition. Robe also suffered another crushing defeat at the hands of Hatherleigh, this time by 183 points. Ciaran Buckley, Tylah Saunders and Jack Sullivan won the ball whenever they liked and Sam Telfer booted 9 goals. Robe only managed to goal in the final term.

Erratic Tantanoola trailed Glencoe by just 20 points at ½ time but scarcely gave a yelp after that. Glencoe raced away to a 42 point lead by ¾ time with Kingsley Clark and Marcus Von Duve doing plenty of damage and goal-kickers McRae and Leo Sharaf each booting 4. Seven more goals in the final term sealed Tant’s fate and they now sit shakily in 4th spot.

Clark, Von Duve, Dane Paproth, Tom Edwards and significantly Lachlan Medhurst in the ruck were best for Glencoe. Tim Stringer tried hard to lift his team, Tyson McGrath and Cooper Hamilton battled hard for Tant.

The closest game of the round was between Kongorong and resurgent Mt Burr. The Mozzies got out to a good start with 7 goals in the 1st quarter with Chris Murray in good touch around goal. Kongorong worked back into the game to trail by 16 points at ½ time with the Phillips brothers, Shaun and Dwayne playing well. Mt Burr kicked away through mid-fielders Gallio and Ridley to lead by 31 points at the last change. This proved too much for Kongorong as Mt Burr had the better of the last quarter and ran out winners by 41 points. Brodie Hennink with 3 goals, Nathan Muhovics, Gallio and Ridley were best for Mt Burr who have won 6 on the trot and look a real threat. For Kongorong, another year of what if’s, their best were Ben Drew, the Phillips boys, and Nick Ham.

HATHERLEIGH TOO STRONG FOR TANTANOOLA

Round Nine report – 3 June 2013

Hatherleigh took control of the game after ¼ time against Tantanoola to win easily by 68 points. The 1st quarter was fairly even with the Eagles 10 points up and Tant having their share of the play. Hatherleigh steadily increased their work-rate and added 6 goals to three and lead by 28 points at the half way mark.

Jumping Jack Sullivan and star mid-fielder Tylah Saunders were proving difficult to contain and veteran forward Brett Sneath was dangerous near goal. The margin got wider in the 2nd term as Tant struggled to stay in touch with Hatherleigh able to find goal-kickers whenever they went forward. Hatherleigh held a 37 point lead at the last change but swamped Tant with 7 last quarter goals.

Sullivan, Saunders, Sneath with 7 goals and Albert Ellis were best for Hatherleigh. Cohen Williams, veteran little man Jason Rowe and Tyson Mcgrath battled hard for Tant. Kongorong, smarting from recent losses took hapless Robe to the cleaners with a 124 point win. Robe were never in the hunt after ¼ time and added only one goal in the 2nd half whilst Kongorong raced away.

Key forwards John Simkin (6 goals) and Josh Wright (5 goals) met only token opposition from Robe and Aaron Harding picked up kicks everywhere to be best for Kongorong. Robe’s regular battlers were Tom Pearce and Zac Deane.

Nanwarry again faded at the finish when in a match winning position at ¾ time. It had been a goal for goal struggle with the lead changing hands several times before Nangwarry appeared to be getting on top near ¾ time to hold a 12 point.

But as in previous weeks they faded as Kalangadoo dominated the last quarter with 16 scoring shots to three which saw the Magpies win by 21 points. Veteran Brian Casey had a day out for Kalangadoo and booted 8 goals, James Pratt, Jason Banister and Jason Stone also played well. Ben Deamer, Rick Lindner and Matt Fatchen tried hard for Nangwarry but couldn’t stem the tide in the end.

Port Mac’s chances of a 2nd flag in a row are only stumbling along after they were beaten by a resurgent Mt Burr. Goals were very hard to get with eleven scored for the game but Mt Burr made better use of their chances when near goal. Not many games are won when you can only kick 3 goals in 3 quarters of football but the Mozzies did just that by cutting out the Port Mac forwards.

Mt Burr held a 29 point lead at ¾ time and didn’t score in the last quarter but still held out Port Mac to win by 13 points and win their 5th game on the trot to get on equal terms with Port Mac but remain well behind on percentage. On a difficult day for good footy Brodie Hennink, star mid-fielders Clint Gallio and Nathan Muhovics and wingman Josh Fiebig played well for Mt Burr. Rugged Damian O’Dine relished the tough going to be Port Mac’s best ahead of Joel Feast and Ben McGregor.

sp; May 2013

Robe passed over the wooden spoon mantle to Nangwarry in MSE football with a gritty 6 point win. Displaying their best form in ages the Roosters surged to a 41 point lead after an eight goal 2nd quarter. The dizzy feeling must have got to them as Nangwarry surged back in the 3rd term to trail by 12 points at ¾ time with veteran Brett Lindner showing the way and Ben Dinnison providing goals on the forward line.

Nangwarry continued to press forward but Robe clung on tenaciously to record their 1st win for 2013. Jaryd Dawson with 5 goals, Tom Pearce, skipper Jayman Fletcher and Andrew Everett were best for Robe. Lindner, Adam Gartside Craig Hicks and recruit Brett Sutherland  best for Nangwarry.

Nippy on-ballers Clint Gallio and Dylan Ridley gave Mt Burr plenty of drive around the packs and defenders Brodie Hennink and Dale Bowering restricted Kalangadoo’s forwards for the Mozzies to record a 30 point win. Mt Burr led all game but never by enough to call the game safe but Kalangadoo couldn’t find a reliable avenue to goal. Gallio, Tom Fennell, Ridley and Hennink were better players for Mt Burr. Forty-three year old Michael Jones won plenty of kicks, Pat Hatch and Bannister tried hard for Kalangadoo.

After a tight first half where Glencoe saw a 30 point quarter-time lead evaporate to just one point against Kongorong, the Murphies bolted away. Pint size forward Nathan McEachern was an unlikely villain for Glencoe and Alex Hentschke also gave plenty of drive but Kongorong hit back in the 2nd quarter through Jason Phillips and Josh Wright. Glencoe took control with 8 goals in the 3rd quarter as Kongorong’s defence unraveled to lead by 36 points. They again dominated the last quarter as Kongorong fell right away to win by 66 points.

Twelve individual goal-kickers highlighted Glencoe’s win and better players were Hentschke, Tom Edwards, Zacc Cocks and Trent Hawke. Kongorong left too much to too few but Jason Phillips with 4 goals, Ben Drew, Bronson Saffin and Josh Wright tried hard.

Port MacDonnell tumbled to their 3rd loss in a row when Tanatnoola came from behind to win by 11 points. Both sides went goal for goal in the 1st half with Port Mac leading narrowly. Will McDonald was again the star for Port Mac and was also having to kick the goals. Tant were battling to stay in touch as Port Mac held a 12 point lead at ¾ time.

Rob Versace had proved elusive near goals for Tant but they needed others to step up.  Tant finished strongly with coach Tim Stringer winning stacks of kicks around the mid-field and Versace booting goals they ran over Port Mac with 6 goals to two for a morale boosting win. Lyndon Smith starred in defence for Tant, Cam Saint, Stringer and Versace with 7 goals made big contributions in the win. McDonald with 5 goals tried valiantly to get his side across the line, Ben O’Dine and Jordan Zietz and Luke McIntyre were also good for Port Mac. The gap might only be one game between fourth and fifth but the percentage is 12% and growing which suggests the battle of the top four is for re-arrangement only.
