JAKE BRUCE WINS HIS THIRD MAIL MEDAL

August 22, 2016

The Mid West FL Medal counts and presentations were held at Wudinna immediately following the 1st Semi Finals. Congratulations to all the winners-:

A Grade

Jake Bruce of Central Eyre is announced as the winner of the Mail Medal as the League’s Best and Fairest in 2016.  Joint winners of the Presidents Medal as runner’s up are Zac Fitzgerald of Central Eyre and Mark Dolling of the West Coast Hawks, the Joe Day Medal for the best Under 21 is Sam Buckham of Wudinna United.  Winner of the JH Mc Kenna Trophy for the leading Goal Kicker is Zac Fitzgerald with 65 goals from 11 games.

B Grade

Jordan Stutley of Central Eyre is announced as the winner of the Montgomerie Medal as the Best and Fairest in the B Grade Competition.  Joint winners of the Bob Whetstone Medal as runners up are Ryan Cummings of Wudinna United and Shaun Murphy of Central Eyre.

Colts

Jay Johns of West Coast Hawks is the winner of the Lockwood Medal as Best and Fairest in the Colts Competition,  Winning the Doug Fox Medal as runner up is Matthew Reeves of Elliston

Mail Medal – Jake Bruce

This is Jake’s third Mail Medal, also winning the award in 2012 and 2013, intersected with a hamstring injury that hampered him in 2014 and most of 2015.  Also winning the 2016 Flow FM MVP award, which is as selected by clubs, his exceptional work has been noticed by everyone.  Highly skilled, it doesn’t matter if it is wet/dry, windy, hot, cold, he excels in any conditions.  A Prolific midfielder, Jake possesses a devastating long kick, hitting targets from 60m and carry the ball for distances also with wonderful leg speed.  Very hard to match up on, and gets first attention of opposition taggers.  Jake represented the League at Mortlock Shield and Eyre Peninsula at the State Country Championships, playing well at both.  A bid congratulation to Jake, who has stamped himself as one of the very high achievers of Country Football, and at 23, plenty top football look forward to as well.  A very well deserved recognition.

Presidents Medal – Zac Fitzgerald and Mark Dolling

Two of the elite players of Mid West, both new to the league in 2016.  Zac returning home to Central Eyre after a stint in Adelaide with Woodville-West Torrens and then in the Mid North with Brinkworth Spalding Redhill for a couple of years.  Zac has played much of the time in the midfield resting forward, being unstoppable.  Tall, fast and fit, he recently represented SA Country against WA Country.  He possesses a long accurate kick and ability to avoid being tackled.  Mark moved to Streaky Bay early in the year to set up a new business venture.  A highly decorated player throughout his career, starting at Ramblers in Great Flinders, then Port Adelaide Magpies and a place getter in the Magarey Medal, then winning a Mail Medal at Paskerville FC in the Yorke Peninsula FL.  A strongly built midfielder with a passion for the contest, wins the hardball and sets up runners around him. Regular goal kicker and ability to work through heavy traffic, breaking tackles along the way.

Joe Day Medal – Sam Buckham

Sam plays for Wudinna United, and represented Norwood Under 18s during the year, also the Eyre Peninsula under 17 side.  16 years old, he plays in the midfield for Wudinna United, with occasional key position jobs.  Works hard all day and covers plenty of ground in an effort to lift his side.  A true two sided player making him hard to tackle and elusive when he has the football.  Sam won the Lockwood Medal in the Colts competition last year and also represented Mid West at the 2016 Mortlock Shield, captaining the Mid West Kinlough Cup side.

Montgomerie Medal – Jordan Stutley

Jordan is captain of the Central Eyre reserves and also was called upon to play A Grade during the year.  Kicked 29 goals for the season, but is a true utility player, dominant in the midfield, dangerous up forward and a mean defender.  He possesses a strong mark and brings team mates in to the game.  Deceptively quick and great work ethic, a very well deserved award

Bob Whetstone Medal – Shaun Murphy and Ryan Cummings

Two of the speedsters of the reserves competition, Shaun a young centreline player with an A Grade future and Ryan Cummings a former high level A Grader in his later football years.  Shaun possesses great leg speed and carries the ball well, enjoys winning the contested football and regularly sets up his forwards.  Good disposal skills and just doesn’t stop.  Ryan is a former A Grade premiership player with Wudinna United and still possesses his trademark ability to dodge and weave, just when you think that you’ve got him, he’s gone.  Playing in the midfield for a lot of the year before a call back to the A Grade side where he again acquitted himself well

Lockwood Medal – Jay Johns

Captain of the West Coast Hawks and enjoyed another great year at the Hawks, not only in the Colts but as a regular A Grade player.  Wins the ball from the middle and sets up his team mates, leading a strong Hawks outfit.  Able to find the goals and works into defence quickly, he as another player very hard to match up on.  A great build for football and very fit.  A very well deserved Best and Fairest award.

Doug Fox Medal – Matthew Reeves

This is a great recognition to a player who has developed quickly in the past couple of years, Matt leads the ruck at Elliston, now being one of the taller players in the league.  Needing to learn this recently, he has dominated the contests and also around the ground marking most that comes his way.  Always ready to assist those around him, he also is dangerous when allowed to go forward, long kick and accurate.  Played A Grade this year and will play much more next year.

Mid West FL Round Seven – The Press Box

June 8, 2016

The season is almost at its half way point as home and away football now breaks for the Mortlock Shield, Port Adelaide Cup, and for some the revise where they are at!  The Bulldogs repeat their Grand Final medicine dose to the Hawks at Streaky Bay, an inaccurate Tigers outlast the Bombers at Minnipa, and Elliston flex their muscle, disposing of a luck lustre Wudinna United at Elliston.

The Grand Final replay at the Bay promised big, and delivered of sorts, the Hawks will have liked to be much closer, Dogs winning by 45 points. Tough and hard, as always between these two high flyers, tackles not being broken and ball hard won.  Centrals won every quarter, easing away further as the match wore on, the big bodies, long kicking power and precision ball movement just too good in the end.  The Hawks tried hard all day and will feel that they were able to stay with the ‘Dogs for periods, maybe just needing to increase the options forward! (Steed Sutherland back soon and maybe the older Champ Brent Bascombe warming up in the reserves).

As always, hard work shared amongst the doggies, Lachlan Heath welcome back to the side and leading the best, Jake Sampson, Jake Bruce running and ball use, Zac Fitzgerald on the ball and just so hard to match up, five goals in another impressive performance, Kane Sampson to rock at the back, big man but not afraid to run when the ball turns over creating links.  Tasman Fitzgerald with three goals and Wade O Brien two, just continue to provide sharp forward focus. Keenan Bury all day and Hayden Heath once again making centre half forward his own.  Jared Sampson last game before a mid season break overseas.

The Hawks played well for large patches and maybe a few more than wanted turnovers for their liking.  Mark Dolling in the centre, hard, tough and uncompromising.  Revels in these sorts of games and led the way for the Hawks, Dillon Montgomerie ever reliable, Dale Montgomerie three goals and strong in the contest, Jake Mc Evoy enjoying the run on the ball and displaying his blistering speed.  Darren Brown showed good patches, Nick Schumann worked hard and Aiden Whitford always a dangerous forward.

The Hawks certainly went some way to bridging a gap since round one and will continue their build as the season continues, but the Bulldogs simply irresistible at the moment.  They reach the Mortlock break undefeated in the A Grade and B Grade and have set the standard.

Roosters roared into top four favouritism against rival Wudinna United at the Rooster Pen!  Coach Christian Weetra very pleased with his charges four quarter work rate and attitude as they swept the game away from a disappointing Magpies in perfect football conditions. 

A standout performance in Jordan Newton, 15 goals.  Excitement at Rooster land as everyone running for the record books, has his uncle Jon’s (Jon Newton) record been eclipsed? Some said yes, some no, uncle Jon shaking his head.  (The record shows that Jon kicked 15 against Western Districts on 21 May 1994 at Elliston, and additionally kicked 14 against Streaky Bay the week prior, at Streaky Bay).  So from uncle Jon’s point of view, the lad still has some work to do!, for the rest of us, this was just an outstanding effort.

Jordan’s heroics well supported by Liam Newton, dominating performance from the centre and precision passes forward, Jay Williams in sparkling touch, enthusiastic and fit, Ross Bascomb in everything and amasses disposal at will, Tom Rumbelow cleaning up across half back and almost untacklable. (new word for the dictionary!). Rob Pickett with poise and typical hard at it style, Steve Paul a great target forward, Matthew Reeves after half time showed that he has a big future, Brodie Kenny at half back played well. A whole of team performance and structured well throughout, a few still to come back into the team will have the Roosters sharpening their claws as finals approach.

Very hard day at the office for the undermanned Magpies, simply too many disposals finding red coloured guernseys.  Sam Buckham in the centre leading the best, Darryl Marshall another great game at the last line of defence, reading incoming plays well, David Moyse back into the side and showing the form that made him a premiership player in Mid West and Far North, Brayden Chambers enjoying a great year, Ian Jericho never gives up trying and captain courageous Henry Zwar. Remi North, particularly in the second half, and Thomas Dupree trying hard in the ruck can hold his head high.

The break comes at a good time for the Magpies, a chance to reassess and maybe look forward to college lads return for a few matches respite.  Just couldn’t shut the relentless Rooster attack down and need to regroup to challenge for finals contention.

The Tigers kept their season alive with a typically hard fought win against the Bombers at home, ten points the win, probably a larger than usual margin between these two.  Bombers may have torpedoed their top two chance, but the Districts boys will retain a hope for a second half of the season run at the finals. Did their very best that the Bombers stayed in the match with some wayward kicking, but some of these were rushed.

A huge welcome back to Dylan Beinke, his second game but he is adding additional bite to a centreline already productive, and certainly generating an improved level of forward entries.  Dylan leading the way, along with Scott Feltus, Shannon Horgan who have both carried a large load all year very capably.  Jerel Fromm another important cog, good in the air and on the ground. Kade Hood in the ruck, Steven Brands a great return of three goals, young and particularly skilful.  Thomas Lee move forward was productive with three goals, and likely he will spend more time forward in the future. Damon King played well and fronted in the B grade also, so will have spent a weary Saturday evening.  Good efforts across the Tigers team.

Again Yanni Kozminski leads the way for Wirrulla, fourth consecutive time and probably the form ruckman across the League.  Not just ruck work, but high marking and general ability to get to the contest.  Rob Holmes worked hard all day, Mark Binder mainly in defence, Regan Mastrelangelo proving a great pick up, the strength of Cody Colbung, Paul Haynes some great work also.

Disappointing outcome for Wirrulla, but they remain very much in contention and missed a couple of players who may well have bridged this gap.  For the Tigers, coach Feltus very pleased to win a close one and put themselves back in to a position to launch into the second half of the season, Districts forever competitive and maybe have found some extra avenues to goal that they have been searching for?

Mid West heads to the Mortlock Shield and Port Adelaide Cup next weekend.  Both teams trained at Streaky Bay on Sunday, and the A Grade will go through their final paces on Wednesday evening at Wudinna.  New faces in the league this year has the League looking towards the Mortlock and Port Adelaide Cups with high hopes.

Round Six – May 29, 2016

Central Eyre showed once again why it is Premiershuip favourite in the Mid West Football League, with a 162 point win over Western Districts. Tasman Fitzgerald and Wade O’Brien pleased themselves up forward kicking eight goals each. To Western Districts credit they tried to the bitter end, adding six goals in the final quarter, to gain some respectability on the scoreboard.

West Coast Hawks showed they’re well a truly a live chance for the 2016 flag, with a 54 point win over Elliston, Aiden Whitford kicking six goals in an impressive display up forward.

After a tight first half, Wirrulla out ran Wudinna United to win by 30 points, to confirm their hold on third spot.

Elliston recorded their first win of 2016, winning at Wudinna by eight  points. There was little in it all day, until Elliston kicked 4.4 to 2.0 in the last, to grab the win.  Jay Williamswas best for the Roosters, with Adam Hurrell kicking three goals.

GRAND FINAL TO CENTRAL EYRE

UPSET WIN OVER HAWKS WHO WERE UNBEATEN

Centrals Conquer Hawks in Style

Central Eyre have posted a rousing win against their recent Grand Final nemesis the West Coast Hawks in the Mid West Grand Final.  Better conditions to play football in have not yet been invented, 21 degrees with a zephyr of a breeze to keep players cool, with a great crowd in anticipation of a big day.

West Coast Hawks entered the game undefeated, warm favourites with most pundits, but Centrals had earned their stripes, they pushed the skilful Hawks all the way in the 2nd semi, then continued their improving form in the Preliminary Final in disposing of the Bombers.

Early in the match, goals were traded somewhat, 1st quarter seven scoring shots for the Hawks to six by Central Eyre, hard football, tackling strong and space hard to find. Similarly the arm wrestle continued in the second term, both sides creating opportunities and winning their fair share of the ball.  So much of the Bulldogs inaccuracy has been talked about this season, they found themselves ten points down at half time, inaccurate 4 goals 9 on the board to the Hawks more productive 6 goals 6. Those enjoying the refreshments at the break were suggesting that the ‘dogs again have been brave but had perhaps missed their opportunity again, the fit agile Hawks on their home ground going to be a mountain to climb after half time. How often this is the case, and the Hawks for their part appeared to have weathered the Centrals attack well, the direction that the match would go as scripted.

Unaware of the obituaries being settled on the outside, the ‘Dogs brains trust were conjuring up plans and moves that would break the game completely open.  Ty Mc Kenna to full forward, Wade O Brien to the pocket, instructions for immediate play on at every stoppage, quick delivery, no stopping to catch the crafty Hawks defence man on man.

From the first bounce after half time, wave of Bulldogs harried their opponents causing turnovers, runners tearing past, slick handballs and then long kicks forward. In the vaunted “Premiership Quarter” Mc Kenna was their new target.  On the lead, in the pack, on the boundary and crumbing, he rose to the occasion, kicking six goals for the quarter, a ten point deficit had become a 30 point advantage.  Wade O Brien himself taking some crucial grabs, but the mid field / engine room was getting on top.  Jared Sampson, Jake Bruce, Jesse Stringer in the thick of it and fantastic delivery forward.  Nine goal quarter to three for the Hawks, wow!, that wasn’t supposed to happen against the strongest defence in the League!

The Hawks coach Paul Evans for the first time had faced a deficit going into the last quarter, this is a Grand Final, so pulling players back to stop the goal haemorrhage cant be an option, except for the Bulldogs!  Evans instructed his players to play on and move the ball quickly, take risks in an effort to bridge the gap.  To the Central’s credit, stopping their momentum was not going to be an option, more scoreboard hurt would bury the Hawks, play the spaces, exploit the forward running Hawks on turn overs.  And so it happened, fierce pressure caused normally pin point accurate to turn the ball over which was quickly converted to Bulldog score.  So successful were the Bulldogs, the last quarter saw them score seven goals to one in an onslaught not seen against the Hawks for decades. A sixteen goal to four second half that swept the Premiership Cup to the Bulldogs in an astounding performance.  The Hawks for their part went down trying to win, but just found themselves swimming against a red, blue and white tidal wave!

For the winners, good players everywhere, Jared Sampson a well deserved P A Matthews Medal for the best afield, prime mover in the middle with targets being hit every time hand or foot, Jake Bruce, on the wing was fantastic, hard running and it was his kicks so often resulting in the next shot for goal, Jake Sampson, a great year and a great grand final, ball on a string and tough at the contest, Ty Mc Kenna, seven goals in the second half, maybe the match winner, certainly set the game alight with his third quarter, but was good all game, Keenan Bury, tough and gets plenty of it, Matt Sampson, 1st game back and was excellent, spent an enforced ten minutes back on the pine with the coaching staff in the first quarter, but was valuable for the rest of the match. Jesse Stringer, plenty of football and tackles that are simply not broken, Martin Grocke, another strong performance from the veteran, and plays anywhere, Wade O Brien, wonderful big man strength and contested mark. Three goals so ten for the two big forwards is a more than satisfactory result! Kane Sampson in defence, long spoils from behind as good as a kick, and keeping the dangerous Brent Bascombe to one goal, Clint Winter, Brett Mc Comb there all day and Lachlan Heath a pillar, either in the middle or across half back his ability to win the balls that are not his to win is fantastic!  Could go through the entire team, no passengers for the Grand Final journey!

The Hawks have had a wonderful season, but fell at the final hurdle, always a class outfit and while they will feel this loss, know that it took a herculean effort to beat them.  Cam Montgomerie, forward for much of the day provided a productive target, Dale Montgomerie, always around the packs and still running into the last in an effort to lift his side, Derick Freeman in defence, plenty of work to do, but he does it so well, Dillon Montgomerie, another good game as expected, tried and tried, Tyson Montgomerie, often drifting across centre setting up play,  Aiden Whitford and Nathan Wollford picked up plenty of football, Dylan Kelsh in the ruck but maybe felt the lack of match practice when the pace of the game continued so late, Quite a few Hawks fell off the pace in the second half and when the tape is watched, will regret some missed tackles and short passes.

A big congratulations to Central Eyre, a premiership three years in the making, some hard decision at the selection table and concentrating on their game plan to the end, coach Wade O Brien maybe more relieved than elated. Given the Hawks success, much of the remaining crowd’s goodwill probably rested with the ‘Dogs. An entertaining and fast paced match, well catered and hosted by the West Coast Hawks!  Salute 2015 Mid West Premiers – Central Eyre.
