EDITORIAL AN EYE ON THE FUTURE It is easy to get caught up in the now

and basically manage from day to day, or even season to season.

But as much as it is important to be in the now, it is equally important to try and crystal ball by planning for the future. When I say the future, I mean what will be the profile of the NFNL in 20 years or more. What will the membership base of the NFNL look like? How many clubs and teams will the NFNL encompass? What will the football structure look like? What will be the impact on the NFNL of the projected growth north of Epping? What will be the challenges facing clubs in 20 years? Will clubs have a paid administrator to relieve the pressure on volunteers? Will games still be played only on weekends? What will be the organisational structure of the NFNL? These and many more questions need to be considered and planned for. I ask this question of all clubs, what do you think your club will look like in 20 years’ time? Or what would you like to it to look like? If you cannot answer these questions maybe it’s time to start the conversation to create a vision for the future. Without a vision you are a rudderless ship relying on luck and fate to get you to where you want to be. Don’t end up shipwrecked. Recently the NFNL ran a club planning workshop for

all clubs to attend. The objective of this was to enable and empower clubs to go away and develop a 3 to 5-year plan. The NFNL has asked all clubs to have a strategic plan in place by the commencement of the 2019 season. Some may ask how can clubs do this? With the support of AFL Victoria Football Development Managers Phiv Demetriou and Anthony McDonald, they will be working with all clubs to guide them through this process. Phiv and Anthony are both based at the NFNL office, and they are available at anytime to assist clubs with all club development matters. The NFNL Strategic Plan expires this year and we will also be putting in place a process to consult with all key stakeholders on what they think the focus of the NFNL should be over the next 5 years. It is important that we are all on the same page and we are working in collaboration to grow the league and our clubs simultaneously. We cannot grow alone. A good strong league is reflected by well run, strong and healthy clubs. All clubs want to a part of a strong professional league, and as a league, we are only as strong as our clubs. I believe the league and our clubs have a very strong relationship and no topic is off the table. Now is the time to begin the next phase of the NFNL. To achieve this, we must all take ownership of the future by working together. I look forward to having many futuristic conversations with one and all. Enjoy your weekend of NFNL football or netball.

NFNL News DEMONS PREPARED TO EARN THEIR PLACE

by Nicholas Sacco

Mernda coach Paul Derrick believes his side will

deserve to be in the Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3 final series if it can hold on to a top-four spot by the end of the regular season. The Demons currently sit in fourth position on the ladder and have a one-game and 10 percent gap over fifth-placed Laurimar. Mernda hosts the competition’s top-two sides, St Mary’s and Panton Hill, in the final two home and away rounds, while Laurimar faces bottom-two sides, Lalor and Reservoir. It means Derrick’s side will likely have to win both its final two matches to guarantee a top-four place and play finals for the first time since 2014. “Our mindset will be that we will deserve whatever we will get,” Derrick told The Northerner. “If we can put four quarters together and manage to pull off a couple of victories then we will deserve our spot in the finals. “If not, then we have just been making up the numbers throughout the season. “We need to serve up something in the next two games to prove that we belong there.” Mernda had to survive a last quarter comeback from Lalor to hold on for an eight-point victory in Round 15. It followed a shock 27-point home defeat to Laurimar the week prior. But it’s the importance of winning the two upcoming matches that sits at the top of Derrick’s list of priorities. “We just have to get consistent, but we know we are running out of time,” he said. “The way we played (last week) wasn’t so good but our contested footy was good. “Our message at the end of the game was while it wasn’t the prettiest win, we got the four points, which was our main focus, and will continue to be our focus next week.” While the potential of making the finals has the club buzzing, Derrick is committed to keeping the focus of his team on the last two weeks of the regular season. “I think all along the boys have been keen to get back into the finals. It hasn’t been mentioned too much but

it is probably in the players’ mind a bit,” he said. “But the full focus has to go to St Mary’s, which is a huge opposition this week. Our focus is if we are going to deserve finals then we know we have to put in big efforts starting from this week. “The boys are up for the challenge. I know we will focus on everything possible to give us the best opportunity to win.” After a disappointing 2017 that yielded just four wins, Derrick has taken many positives out of the season so far, most notably the ability to give senior experience to a host of the club’s up and coming youngsters. “We’ve had our ups and downs, but the best part I think is that we have used around 48 players, nine of them from the under-19s,” he said. “We gave everybody exposure and that helps everyone. “We’ve won a few close games, which could have gone either way, so it shows that we have stood up as a club. “Last year’s backline is very similar to this year’s and we’re down 60, 70 points in our scored against column last year. “We are happy with what we have achieved to date but whether it is enough we don’t know. We are aiming pretty high. Finals are our aim and the next two weeks will decide that.” The likes of Matthew Campbell, Tom Deayton and Liam Gray have been standouts for Mernda this season, while captain Josh Delaney has been solid up forward and is the club’s leading goal kicker with 23 majors. Derrick feels the club’s best players have not only improved individually but have also helped their teammates become better players. “Tommy Deayton has been outstanding in the backline, Joshua Delaney has had a good year, Matty Campbell has held up well down in the backline. Liam Gray has been asked to play every position on the field and he hasn’t let us down,” Derrick said. “They’ve all been their own leaders and most of our leaders are young leaders. Everyone is learning and that helps their development. “We’ve got a solid team and when everyone comes to play their role, then that’s when we look and play our best.” WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

NFNL News BORO WIN WITH BUZZER BEATER

by Jarrad Gardner

Greensborough has given its Meadows Greyhounds

Division 1 top-three hopes a major boost with a thrilling three-point victory over Heidelberg in Round 15. After the Tigers took the lead at the 23-minute mark of the final term, a goal to Andrew Stellas with six seconds remaining secured the 12.9 (81) to 11.12 (78) victory for the Boro at War Memorial Park. Lachlan McQuilken was named best on ground for the Boro, with an impressive four-quarter display through the midfield. Jacob Pickett, Tynan Smith and Chris Clark were also influential in the win. Billy Murphy continued his impressive run of form, with another four goals, to take his total to 18 in just five matches. The Boro spread the load up forward, with eight others booting singles. Josh Gribben and Tom Sullivan were outstanding in defence for Heidelberg, while ruckman Sam Gilmore was a presence around the ground all day. Sam Grimley, Harrison Payne, Ben Irving and Matthew Cecchin all booted two goals apiece, while Fletcher Carroll and Ryan Stone slotted singles. Heidelberg did all the attacking early in the match, however was only able to muster three behinds, before Murphy booted Greensborough’s first goal against the run of play. Dan McLinden proved an unlikely suspect up forward, taking a mark and converting minutes later, before Dylan Clancy and Murphy ran into open goals to give the Boro a 21-point quarter time lead. Ryan Stone booted the Tigers first major in the opening minutes of the second term, courtesy of a 50-metre penalty. The sides traded goals before Cecchin and Irving slotted two goals in as many minutes to cut the away side’s deficit to 16 points at the main break. The third quarter was tightly contested, with neither side able to crack their opposition. The first goal came at the 18-minute mark through Fletcher Carroll, before Grimley slotted another to push Heidelberg within one point. The Boro looked like they could succumb to the pressure with just one player remaining on their interchange bench after Zak McCubbin and Brody

4

Tickell were ruled out, before Dan McLinden fell hard to the turf midway through the third term. However, there was still some fight left as Tristan Stead goaled before Murphy slotted his third in the final minute of the third quarter. Murphy booted another in the opening minutes of the final term as the Boro looked like running away with the game. However, Heidelberg got on a roll and roared back into the contest with five of the next six goals, including a huge pack mark and checkside from Sam Gilmore, before Grimley converted to put the Tigers in front for the first time since the opening term. The stage was set as the ball flew into Greensborough’s forward 50, however no one could get a clean kick away. A free kick to Andrew Stellas in a ruck contest set the home crowd alight and as he converted from close range, the Boro faithful erupted. As the siren sounded the passion showed on the faces of Greensborough players, however it was heartbreak for the Tigers, who now sit in sixth place on the ladder, behind Bundoora on percentage. Greensborough travels to North Heidelberg in a massive top-three clash in Round 16, while Heidelberg hosts Northcote Park. FINAL SCORE: Greensborough 12.9 (81) def Heidelberg 11.12 (78)

NFNL News BEARS POUNCE ON DEMONS

By Christopher Chrysostomou

Lower Plenty all but secured a top-two finish in A Plus Labour Solutions Division 2 after defeating Diamond Creek by 32 points at Coventry Oval.

In a hard-fought affair, the Bears accuracy in front of goal in the first three quarters enabled them to come away with a 13.12 (90) to 7.16 (58) win. Jack Wilkinson shone for the Bears, kicking four goals in his first game of senior football. Fellow debutant Brixton Timewell also hit the scoreboard, kicking his first goal in the final term, which sent teammates into celebration. Ben Patterson increased his goal tally to 30 goals for the season, kicking three goals, while Patrick Flynn and Matthew Duckworth were again standouts for the Bears. Diamond Creek had a day to forget in front of goal. At times the Demons were the superior side, but failed to capitalise on the scoreboard. The Demons had plenty of opportunities to reduce the deficit in the third term but only managed 2.4 (16) for the quarter, without counting the few shots that went out on the full. The game kicked off in the mist of plenty of anticipation as both sides were positioned inside the top four. Lower Plenty got off to the best of starts, courtesy of Wilkinson’s intelligence around the stoppage to kick the first goal of the game. Jai Norman reduced the margin to a point by kicking Diamond Creek’s first major, before Ben Patterson increased the visitors’ lead to seven points. Diamond Creek began to take the ascendency, but as would be the case for the remainder of the day, the home side failed to make it count on the scoreboard. Lower Plenty’s defence, led by Mitchell Clamp, held strong and against the run of play. Wilkinson ran into an open goal to boot his second goal, after two Diamond Creek defenders collided in a marking contest. Diamond Creek got off to the best of starts in the second quarter by booting the first goal of the term. After the goal, Lower Plenty’s Ciaran Porter was handed a yellow card.

Despite the loss of Porter, Lower Plenty continued its dominance and goals to Corey Sleep, Thomas Blake and Wilkinson saw the visitors increase their lead to 18 points at half time. Diamond Creek was the superior team in the third term but could not capitalise on its dominance. The Demons had all the attacking play and made it difficult for the Bears to clear their defence. But for all their control of the contest, the Demons could only manage to kick two goals, while Wilkinson and Patterson slotted home majors against the run of play for the Bears. At three quarter time, Diamond Creek coach Craig Hayes told his players to play “wet weather footy” and “be brave to take the game on”. Ryan Pingree kicked the first goal for the Demons to reduce the margin under three goals, giving the home side a sniff at producing another come-from-behind win as it did against Lowe Plenty earlier in the season. But from there Dale Nolan, Patterson and Timewell booted majors to seal the win for the Bears. Lower Plenty will travel to Thomastown in Round 16, while Diamond Creek will play the Fitzroy Stars as it looks to jump back into the top-four after slipping to fifth place.

NFNL News POWER KEEP FINALS HOPES ALIVE

by Ben Pascuzzi

Laurimar remains in touching distance of its maiden

Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3 finals appearance after a dominant 69-point win over Kilmore at Laurimar Reserve. With a heavy breeze swirling around the ground, the Power were able to capitalise on their opportunities in the 13.16 (94) to 3.7 (25) win in Round 16. The victory was Laurimar’s eighth for the season and was its second-highest winning margin, ensuring it kept its finals chances well and truly alive with just two rounds left in the home and away season. The Power remain a game and percentage behind fourth-placed Mernda ahead of matches against bottom-two sides Lalor and Reservoir. Conversely, the Demons face top-two sides St Mary’s and Panton Hill in the final two rounds. Early on it was Kilmore who was kicking with the favourable wind and they away side made a promising start, with a goal to Thomas McMillan opening the scoring. But that would be the only major the Blues would kick for the entire first half, as goals to Jacob Lawson and Dallas King saw out the first term with Laurimar holding a seven-point advantage. Kilmore had more clearances and inside 50s than its opponent, however, it also recorded five more turnovers, which hurts its hopes of capitalising on the scoreboard dearly. The second term saw the Power gain the ascendency in the middle of the ground, as goals to Joshua Leather and Jack Kreuzberger inside two minutes saw the margin extend out to 19 points. Leather goaled again not long after before a Mark Mura major late in the quarter saw the Power hold a commanding 37-point win at the half-time break. The third quarter saw the tide shift early on, with Kilmore dominating possession and the inside 50 count for the first five minutes. But it would prove to no avail as Jacson Cecil capitalised after being on the end of a coast to coast play, triggered by a Kilmore turnover, pushing the Power’s lead out to a game-high 42 points. Brad Deed followed suit not long after with his first

for the day, before the Blues finally cashed in on their countless forward entries at the end of the third term, with goals to Matthew Swindells and Michael McCulloch inside a minute of each other. They would prove to be the last time the Blues would put the ball sail through the middle of their goals, as Laurimar piled on four unanswered majors in the final term, including King’s third, to close out the match with a 69-point win. Bouncing back from a disappointing 65-point loss to South Morang the week prior, Laurimar was well led by Noel Murray, Vin Swanepoel and Mitchell Thompson in the big victory. For Kilmore, the never-say-die efforts of Grant Paxton, Leight Irons and Swindells were of note. Laurimar travels to Lalor in Round 17, while Kilmore returns home to tackle the second-placed Panton Hill. FINAL SCORE: Laurimar 13.16 (94) def Kilmore 3.7 (25)

NFNL News JUST ANOTHER GAME FOR ROOSTERS

by James Strebinos

West Preston-Lakeside is treating its preparation for

Saturday’s ANZ NFNL Women’s Division 2 second semi final like any other game. The Roosters begin their finals campaign this week after enjoying a break in the opening week of the finals following a first-place finish on the ladder. Last year’s runners-up won their opening 11 matches in 2018, before succumbing to a shock six-point loss to Montmorency in the final round of the home and away season. West Preston-Lakeside coach Brett Pollard said his side is not thinking too far ahead in the lead up to Saturday’s clash against VU Western Spurs at Epping Recreation Reserve. “We just want to win this week,” Pollard told The Northerner. “This is our biggest game for the year, so we are just focusing on the game on the weekend and if we win, then who knows what will happen in the grand final. “Nothing really changes (in our preparation). We are pretty used to these weekends off due to the midseason byes, but our main focus is just getting the win on the weekend. “There is extra excitement heading into this week, but we will just keep going like every other week.” Despite taking the premiership favourite tag into the finals series, Pollard says his side hasn’t been held down by the pressure of expectation “We have the pressure of being hunted but it’s just another game for us,” he said. “We know that other teams are going to come for us as we are playing so well. “The girls are just taking it week by week and have become a tight group which has helped the cohesion.” After falling short in last year’s Grand Final against the VU Western Spurs, Pollard says his side should need no added motivation heading into this weekend’s game. “We felt it last year and the loss really inspired them and made them hungrier than ever and they want to make amends for last year,” he said. “Especially after the last game where we lost the girls knew we were down and a little flat. We were lucky it

happened then and hopefully doesn’t happen again in the next few weeks.” Despite beating the Spurs twice during the home and away season, Pollard is wary of the reigning premiers and knows his side cannot go in too confident in the lead up to the second semi final. “It’s going to take a full team effort and we will need to be switched on right from the start,” he said. “I wouldn’t say I’m too confident as they beat us in last year’s grand final and we only got them by a point earlier this season. “I’m expecting a close game and the confidence will be up after we did beat them twice this year, but they are a very good side and we can’t take them lightly. “After last week, the girls will be keen to get back on the winners list so hopefully we are at our best.”

NFNL News BURRA CLAIM MINOR PREMIERSHIP

by Samuel Zito

St Mary’s secured the Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3

minor premiership with a stirring two-point win over Panton Hill in Round 14.

The Burra rallied from 17 points behind at threequarter time – booting 3.7 to 1.0 in the final term to score a 10.14 (74) to 11.6 (72) win at Whatmough Park. The result moved the Burra four-wins clear atop the ladder with four rounds left in the home and away season, while Panton Hill slipped to third place – behind South Morang on percentage. After losing to Panton Hill in their Round 5 encounter, St Mary’s coach Fabian Carelli said it was a vital win for his side heading into the finals series. “I think mentally it’s big. You can set yourself knowing that you’ve done the job at some point in time. Now we can tick it off and know what we have to do and maybe play our brand for a little bit longer,” Carelli said. Panton Hill made a fast start in the see-sawing battle, booting five unanswered goals midway through the first term to lead by 17 points at quarter time. St Mary’s responded with a dominant second term to lead by four points at half time, before the visitors took back the ascendency with a four-goal to one third quarter. However, it was St Mary’s who finished the game full of running. The Burra took the lead midway through the final term before Rhys Boyden took a strong pack mark and kicked his third goal to push Panton Hill back ahead. But the ladder-leader was quick to respond, with Jake Dambrauskas getting on the end of a coast-to-coast play and converting from 50m to take back the lead. The Burra were then able to keep their composure in a frantic final five minutes to secure their 12th win the year. “We needed one back mentally on Panton Hill after the first time when they beat us,” Carelli said. “Our boys knew that and were up for a big challenge. I think we really responded. That last quarter and the way we went about it to find a way to win was really good. “Our guys are learning how to grind wins out when

maybe last year they lost those close ones, where four or five went the other way.” Lee Minuz was outstanding in defence for St Mary’s, intercepting many plays and providing rebound for the home side. He was well supported by Leigh Sullivan. The Burra were also well served by first-gamers Ryan Bowkett and Joel Randall from the Northern Knights. Bowkett kicked three goals from the midfield, while Randall was promising in defence on Matthew Byron and Rhys Boyden. “They’ve played every Knights game and I was surprised they got released so when the opportunity came I thought we had to play them,” Carelli said. “I thought Bowkett was outstanding. That’s one of the better debuts you’ll see from a 17-year-old kid. “Joel Randall held his head high down back. We put him against Byron at times and then Boyden and for a young kid to stand up against two quality forwards was really good.” Despite not getting the desired result, Panton Hill can take away plenty of positives after again demonstrating its ability to match it with the ladder leader. Mitch Anderson was superb in defence, while ruckman Nick Parks continued his strong season and Sam Montanaro and John Pritchard found plenty of the ball. Matthew Byron went down in a marking contest late in the third term and took no further part in the game. The Redbacks will hope to have him back quickly ahead of an important final month of the home and away season. FINAL SCORE: St Mary’s 10.14 (74) def Panton Hill 11.6 (72)

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 - Preview OLD FOES IN FINALS BATTLE Bundoora and Heidelberg have shared one of local

football’s strongest rivalries this century, and the two powerhouses now look to be fighting for the last remaining place in the finals. The 2018 season has thrown up plenty of curveballs and there are likely to still be plenty of surprises ahead, however Round 15 defeats look to have ended Montmorency and Northcote Park’s top-five hopes, meaning the race to Preston City Oval appears down to six sides. This week’s marquee fixture takes place at Shelley Reserve where third-placed North Heidelberg hosts second-place Greensborough. The sides share 10-5 records, meaning the winner of this week’s game will move one-game clear in second spot with two rounds remaining. It cannot be understated how important this week’s game is, with the winner to take a massive step forward in the push for a double-chance in the finals. Given how little has separated the best sides in the competition this year, that appears vital to win this year’s flag. Heightening the excitement ahead of this contest is the memories of the last time the sides met back in Round 4. North Heidelberg raced to a five-goal lead, only to be pegged back by the Boro – who prevailed 16.12 (108) to 15.9 (99) in what has proven to be one of the best games on 2018. The Bulldogs have lost just once since that meeting at War Memorial Park and enter this week’s clash on a seven-game winning streak and full of confidence. That includes a 25-point win over Hurstbridge last week, where the Bulldogs weren’t quite at their best, but did what was needed to get the points. Greensborough has won six of its past seven and last week retained second place on the ladder with a three-point win over Heidelberg – thanks to an Andrew Stellas goal in the final 10 seconds. A loss would have left the Boro fourth on the ladder and vulnerable ahead of a tough final three rounds against sides placed inside the top-five. Brent Harvey kicked six goals in a best afield performance last week. The AFL games record holder now has 48 goals for the year and sits third on the goal kicking table, just seven leader and brother, Shane. Conversely, Greensborough on-baller Lachlan McQuilken has been his side’s best player in three of 10

his side’s past five matches and was outstanding in the win over Heidelberg. Billy Murphy was again lively with four majors against Heidelberg and the Boro will sweat on the availability of the Box Hill-listed forward – who now has 18 majors in five games. West Preston-Lakeside is on the hunt for its fourth win on the trot when it makes the trip to Montmorency. The Roosters are arguably the form side of the competition, with their win over Macleod two weeks ago sandwiched between two thrashings of Hurstbridge and Northcote Park. Their nine wins this year have come at an average margin of 11 goals, giving the Roosters the best percentage in the competition at 153.65. Currently a game behind both Greensborough and North Heidelberg, Rob Maiorana’s side will move inside the top-three with a win this weekend. While Ahmed Saad provides the side’s X-factor and looms as one of the competition’s key players heading into the final series, West Preston-Lakeside has shown an ability to share the load this year. Liam McVeigh returned to the side and booted four goals last week, while Sam Glover and Mark Kovacevic have provided plenty in their first year at the club. Michael Ercolano is also enjoying a breakout season after last year making five VFL appearances for Coburg. Montmorency looks destined to miss out on the finals for a fourth-consecutive year but will look to put a dent in the finals aspirations of a number of its rivals in the final three rounds of the home and away season. The Magpies were comfortably beaten by Macleod last week but showed pride in their performance with a strong fourth-quarter resistance – booting seven goals to two to cut the final margin to 17 points. It was the most points conceded in a quarter by the ladder-leader this year. Heidelberg takes on Northcote Park at Warringal Park, where the Tigers will look to atone for last week’s agonising three-point defeat to Greensborough. The Tigers currently sit in sixth position on the ladder, 17 percent behind fifth-placed Bundoora. With just three rounds remaining it is unlikely the percentage differential will be made up, meaning the Tigers will have to win one more game than Bundoora from here. Heidelberg’s final three rounds pit it at home against two bottom-four sides in Northcote Park and

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 - Preview Montmorency. Between those home matches they face the toughest assignment in the NFNL – Macleod at De Winton Park. While Heidelberg’s hasn’t yet secured a finals place – what it has proven is it can compete with the competition’s best. The Tigers have a 5-4 record against sides inside the top-five but are currently being left to rue early-season losses to Hurstbridge and Whittlesea. Josh Gribben and Tom Sullivan head into this week’s game in ripping form, as does ruckman Sam Gilmore – who was very nearly the match-winner after taking a big grab and converting a checkside late in the fourth quarter, before giving away the free kick that resulted in Andrew Stellas’ goal. Footy can be a cruel game. Northcote Park has now lost five of its past six games and must now win its remaining three matches and have other results go their way to feature in a fourthconsecutive finals campaign – a tough ask for a side battling with an extensive injury list. While the Cougars are currently out of form, it is worth noting they led the Tigers by 108 points at three quarter time in their most recent encounter, just seven weeks ago. However, that side featured Ash Close, Jackson Starcevich, Bronik Davies, Brock McLennan and Joel Donaldson – all of whom were missing in the weekend’s loss to West Preston-Lakeside, which was two-time club champion Nick Carter’s 150th senior appearance for the Cougars. Bundoora plays its second-successive home game when it hosts Hurstbridge at Yulong Reserve. The Bulls’ finals hopes ultimately rest in their own hands, with three wins in the final three rounds set to hand the club a finals berth for the 18th consecutive year – a cause which will be aided by the return of three-time Frank Rosbrook medallist Matty Dennis this week. The reigning premier will start a warm favourite but will be wary of a Hurstbridge side that pushed it all the way in an eight-point result in Round 10. They were also scratchy during the opening half of last week’s game against Whittlesea, before hitting their straps with a six-goal final term. 2017 premiership players Nathan Thomas and Nick Grabowski were both among the best last week and are in form at the right time of the year, while the spread of 10 goal kickers would be pleasing. Hurstbridge enters the game with a new coaching

set-up after Trevor Little parted ways with the club for the second time this year. It’s been a difficult campaign for the Bridges, who started the year as finals aspirants but will spend the final three rounds scrapping to avoid the drop to Division 2. The Bridges dug deep in last week’s loss to North Heidelberg. Staring down the barrel of a heavy loss at half-time, they managed to outscore the Bulldogs seven goals to five in the second half and will hope to carry that form into this week’s game. This will be the club’s last road trip for the season ahead of home matches against Montmorency and Whittlesea. It’s hard to determine whether the final two matches at home is an advantage or hinderance, given the Bridges have lost all seven matches at Ben Frilay Oval this year, by an average of 37 points. It is first versus last when Macleod hosts Whittlesea at De Winton Park. The Roos sit first by three wins and percentage. While they look to already have first place sewn up, one win in the final three rounds will make a secondconsecutive minor premiership a certainty. The ladder-leader was quickly back to winning ways last weekend and scored a 17-point triumph over Montmorency. The win did come at a cost, with Nick Lynch suffering broken ribs in a case of friendly fire – a blow for the forward on the eve of finals. The Roos play their final three matches on home soil and over the coming two weeks a host of stars are set to return to the side, including skipper Justin White, Brad Leggett, Jack Bianchin and Patrick Martin. This provides an opportunity for the club to finetune ahead of another finals campaign. It’s difficult to mount a case for Whittlesea given the magnitude of the task it faces this weekend, however the Eagles past month has certainly been an improvement following its struggles between Round 2 to 11. A quick glance forward to next week doesn’t make life easier – with a trip to West Preston-Lakeside to follow. However, facing two of the competition’s most in-form teams may prove a galvanising task for the Eagles, ahead of what is looming as its biggest game of the year in Round 18. Two-time best and fairest Jai Robinson was in good form in last week’s defeat at Yulong Reserves and looms as a vital player in the Eagles’ quest for survival. WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 BUNDOORA This week we are playing Hurstbridge. SENIORS: Great to be back on the winners list with a nice win against Whittlesea. It doesn’t matter where Whittlesea is on the ladder, they always give us a run for our money and we have to be on top of our game. Luckily, we were and we were able to kick away from them in the final quarter. Nice work in the ruck by Daniel Guccione and as usual our captain Nipper Marshall led by example. Best: Nipper Marshall, Nathan Thomas, Dale Marshall, Jai Burns and Daniel Guccione. RESERVES: In very windy conditions it took a great team effort for the win in a very fast flowing game and with some nice teamwork we were able to beat the second placed team on the ladder. Brod Gray was involved in a large part of the game. Best: The Lord brothers, Trent Grant, Travis Keating, Jake Bennett and Simon Crump. UNDER-19: Due to the weather conditions it was a very scrappy game throughout the four quarters

HURSTBRIDGE This week we travel to Bundoora. RESERVES: Another hefty defeat on the weekend against North Heidelberg. With two on the bench being reduced to none by the third quarter, it made for a pretty one side affair/ I thought we started off pretty well and by half time we were still in the game, but we just clearly ran out of legs. Heads up boys as we will get back in the winner’s circle this week. HURSTBRIDGE 1 NETBALL: Section 6 defeated Craigieburn 25-16. Connections didn’t work well in the first quarter but changes for the second brought better timing to grab the momentum for a small lead. Plenty of risks were taken in transitions down the court for the rest of the game but fortunately paid off well to win by nine goals. HURSTBRIDGE 2 NETBALL: Section 9 defeated West Ivanhoe 23-16. Tied down in the first quarter by West Ivanhoe for a slow start but from then there was more direct play down the channels with lower risk passing. Defensive pressure grew after half time with many clean intercepts taken in the mid-court which 12

however we were able to manage a win. Our teamwork has been improving every week and at the right end of the season. Three steps to go boys. Best: Bailey Thompson, Billy Clayton, William Reddrop and Nathan Phillips. WOMEN’S: A week’s rest for our girls last week, however this didn’t stop them from turning up at the Epping football ground to watch opposition teams St Mary’s and VU Western Spurs each other, then the girls watched our boys play Whittlesea. Best wishes to our women’s team manager Ray Bott who tore his calf playing kick to kick with the girls but received no sympathy from them at all. Also Ray congratulations on winning the worst dancer award at the club’s Mid-Winter ball. Today at Epping Recreation Reserve our girls play St Mary’s in the second semi final. If our girls win today they go straight into the grand final. Good luck! AROUND THE GROUNDS: Please remember our $6666 Draw on August 12 tickets are available at the club.

goalers worked hard to reward. A solid eight-goal win and finishing minor premiers! HURSTBRIDGE 3 NETBALL: Section 11 defeated Keon Park 23-13. A solid all round game with a varied attack using good swings across the goal circle, excellent positioning and the occasional long bomb feeds. Plenty of tips and intercepts from strong defensive pressure by every player. Many positional changes showed how flexible the team is. A tremendous 10-goal win and finishing second on the ladder.

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 HEIDELBERG This week we host Northcote Park SENIORS: Ouch! The senior game was a belter, albeit a heart-breaker. The Borough got away in the first and we missed a few opportunities into the wind. While they held a three-goal break pretty much all day we never gave up and worked our way back into the game, taking the lead close to the death. Just not close enough to the death to get the win unfortunately as Greensborough pinched the last goal of the game to take a narrow win. Valuable learning for our young crew. RESERVES: Our reserves copped another belting for the second week in a row. An extensive injury list didn’t help but the boys worked hard all day, just a bit undermanned. UNDER-19: For the first time in a while our under19s were on the losing side of the ledger against Mernda. Again, our numbers were pretty tight due to school footy commitments. Inaccurate kicking didn’t help either with Mernda too good in the end.

NORTHCOTE PARK This week we travel to Heidelberg. SENIORS: We were under the pump from the get-go. The backline was under pressure and could not get the ball out easily, conceding three quick goals which contributed to the 32-point quarter time deficit. The efforts in the second quarter lifted in around the ground, but not enough scoreboard impact had been made to reduce the margin by half-time. The intent to try and win the game was there in the early part of the third, yet it was to no avail. Congratulations to Nick Carter who worked hard in his 150th game. RESERVES: The scene was not set for an easy day, up against the top side with only 15 players. Many thanks to the five under-19s who filled in – Moleta, Perazzola, Desando, Yama and Phokos. With only one goal in the first quarter the boys were very competitive in the second with great endeavour, we kicked three goals to be only 23 points down at half time. But, tiredness started to takeover in the second half, resulting in a 78-point loss. UNDER-19: We started the game with plenty of the 14

SOCIAL: To quote Frankie Valli – ‘Oh what a night’. Thanks to the 170 people who made last Saturday night’s Gala such a great night. Particular thanks to Lisa Hunter for organising the night, Chad Walker for rounding up a solid past players crew, current footballers and netballers who were out in strength and all those businesses and supporters who donated to our auction items. THIS WEEK: Northcote Park at home. We welcome the Cougars to the Den along with Essendon legends Dustin Fletcher and Mark Harvey, guests at our President’s Lunch. Our under-19s have ladder leaders Lower Plenty in a pre-finals hit-out. Our senior and reserves will be looking for wins to keep their finals prospects alive.

ball but could not make the most of our opportunities. Eventually we found our feet and kicked three quick goals which gave us a one-goal lead at the first break. Our momentum carried through into the second as we kicked four goals to West Preston’s one. It was a slow start to the second half with some poor disposal. DeSando, Faubel, Phokos, Ahmad started to dominate as we stretched our lead to beyond six goals at the last break. We finished off the game in a rather subdued last quarter, but it was good to get back among the winners. NETBALL: A competitive game between Northcote Park 1 and Fitzroy Stars 1 saw Northcote Park take the lead late and eventually win 17-28. Northcote Park 2 had a slow start against played Epping 1 and it was a game of catch-up that ended in a draw. Northcote Park 3 met Bundoora in the final game of the season. Both teams starting strong with a goal-for-goal first quarter. By the last quarter the ladies ran out of legs, losing 31-24 SOCIAL NEWS: Our major club raffle will be held on Saturday August 18 after the North Heidelberg home game, commencing 7pm.

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 MACLEOD We are back at Get Wines Direct Oval today to take on Whittlesea.

LAST WEEK: We returned to the winners’ list with a solid 17-point victory over Montmorency. After a tight first half, we came out swinging in the third term with a seven-goal to one burst. It looked like we had Monty on the ropes but to their credit they were equal to the task in the last stanza, piling on seven goals to our two. With a few out and Lynchy going down with broken ribs, it wasn’t a bad effort. Ned McKeown provided plenty of dash and Hammer was in and under all day. The reserves gave it their best shot but went down by 15 points. The under-19s held on for a two-goal win but were wasteful in front of goal NETBALL: Macleod 1 had a big 39-23 win over Diamond Creek while Macleod 2 lost 32-14 to Fitzroy Stars. THE GRASSROOTS GURUS LUNCH: Next Saturday before our home game v Heidelberg, well-known footy writer and author Paul Daffey will be guest speaker with DVFL legends including Mick Sullivan and Macleod champion Bernie Niclasen.

WHITTLESEA This week we travel to Macleod to take on the ladderleaders.

SENIORS: We didn’t come to play against Bundoora and unfortunately looked really flat. Deards was good again. Jai Robbo was good also. The positive was we managed to stay in a game for three quarters when we were not playing well. Macleod is going to be a tough ask. We just need to play four quarters. RESERVES: Tough day at the office for the team against Bundoora. They have been in fantastic form of late. We started okay and we were able to stay in the game. Our third quarter into the breeze was awesome. We were able to apply scoreboard pressure to Bundoora and got the game back on our terms. Unfortunately, we couldn’t repeat that third qtr effort again in the last quarter and Bundoora got a welldeserved win. Ty in our back half was a rock again for us. Michael Brennan, Jezza worked hard all day in the ruck and forward half, Bateman and Hughes’ run off half back was great all day, Matt Langford’s work rate was up under a lot of pressure from the Bundoora 16

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 MONTMORENCY With three games to go, we can still have a major

say in who plays in September. It starts this Saturday when the Roosters visit Para Road. SENIORS: Found out why Macleod is ladder leader and flag favourite last Saturday. Both sides had key players on the sidelines, but the Macleod boys were able to cover their missing personnel more than adequately and employ an all-ground press which is hard to counter. The realities of modern footy are really evident when you see 36 players confined to one quarter or less of the playing arena. Mont, which was playing to keep its finals hopes alive, never gave in but was beaten by a good contested ball side which plays to a tight game plan. The goals fest in the last 10 minutes provided some good entertainment but was a little on the late side for the Magpies. RESERVES: Rick’s boys prevailed in a high quality and gripping game against determined opposition. The match was a sign of what is in store for this mostly young squad as we approach the business end of the season. Players returning from injury in Blake Dillon and Lachie O’Brien were stand-out performers. They were ably supported by Wyatt LeGassick, Brent Brigham, Pecker and “Stingray’’ Slattery. This week the

WEST PRESTON-LAKESIDE This week our senior men’s take on Montmorency,

while the senior women’s begin their finals campaign. FOOTBALL: A tradesmen-like effort gave us a good win against an undermanned opponent to retain the Mellerick/McNeice Cup for the second time this year. It was great to have our full complement of talls available, dwarfing a couple of our past champions in the rooms. It’s great to have the big fellas but the little blokes like Doggy, Ercs and the Valeris make them look good. The two had another victory and I feel sorry for the bloke who was chased down by 23 and 46. The under-19s got out to a lead early before being run down. Today its Mont and a win should put us in the top-three, a loss puts us back in the pack. The girls are in action today with a spot in the big dance up for grabs. Next week were back at home against Whittlesea with the Presidents/Sponsors Lunch and Under-19s 2008 Reunion. AROUND THE TRAPS: Looks like we will have to get the copyright out on our jumper. Has Snowy pulled off a coup taking over the under 16 girls? It’s not too late to

twos’ face a major challenge when they take on the Roosters. UNDER-19: In a tight game the thirds could not close the gap in the closing stages. Hopefully, the boys can learn from this. Best players: J. Robertson, B. Ramsey, M. Taranto, B. Edwards, J. Mills, J. Rountos. WOMEN’S: Our senior women prevailed against South Morang in the first elimination final. Watched by a good Mont support group, they did enough in the first three quarters to get over the line in a reasonably comfortable manner despite a last quarter surge by the South Morang girls, who were kicking with a strong wind. Lauren Dow led the charge with a best-on-ground performance. She was a tower of strength. The coaching panel handled the situation well, and assistant coach Anton was at his sartorial best. Very impressive. The girls take on La Trobe at 11.55am Sunday at Epping Recreation Reserve. Best players: L. Dow, M. Bayes, T. Parkinson, F. Thompson, M. Reinke. SOCIAL: October 12 - Presentation night. See Nikki Blythe and Megan Allan for tickets, which are $140. MATCH REPORTS: Visit our website at www. montmorencyfootballclub.com.au

NETBALL: Is coming back to Rooster land over summer with Net Set Go & Rock Up Netball. We will be fielding sides in the NFNL comp so if you’re interested in playing register you’re interest at the bar or canteen. JUNIORS: We have junior finals on tomorrow so we need helpers as well as a couple of teams in the finals so we wish the best in their pursuit.

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 NORTH HEIDELBERG We welcome Banyule for the under-19s and

Greensborough for development and senior games at our Bendigo Community Bank Oval. For the big boys, plenty riding on this game and we welcome the challenge SENIORS: Started well and then probably content to hold our lead. To the credit of Hurstbridge they came back in the third quarter to give us plenty of concern, particularly with the breeze behind them in the last. We dug deep however and held on, but with respect we need to not get ahead of ourselves or coast through games as we will pay the price. Greensborough are a quality outfit and have done it all before so from the bounce we have to be ready for what they serve up to us. DEVELOPMENT: A great result and some consolation for the hard-working performances for the majority of the year that unfortunately have seen us come a close second in many games. Today you will face no bigger challenge than Greensborough who are strong in the twos year after year. If a few players on the cusp of senior selection want to put their hand up and be noticed, today is the day. You have nothing

GREENSBOROUGH Today we head to North Heidelberg. SENIORS: Pulled off a remarkable three-point victory over Heidelberg. We led all day, but surrendered the lead late, before Andrew Stellas slotted home the winner with just seconds remaining. Billy Murphy booted four goals and was amongst the best players, as prominent midfield trio Lachlan McQuilken, Chris Clark and Jacob Ireland all continued their impressive seasons, with Jacob Pickett playing an important role in the ruck. The win sees us retain second spot, with huge games against third, fifth and fourth to come. Strap yourselves in for a big end to 2018! RESERVES: Downed Heidelberg by 120 points in a dominant display. The boys put their foot down in the second half, kicking 17 goals to three. Jason Tucker was prominent up forward booting eight goals, as Scott Clark dominated through the middle, earning best afield honours. Jesse Presser kicked a bag of six, while Jamie Craker’s efforts in the ruck gave us first use. The reserves sit second on a tight ladder where each game is of the upmost importance. UNDER-19: Our future stars made it three wins on 20

to lose so stick to the plan and support one another. UNDER-19: The boys had last weekend off with the bye and will play Banyule today and with two games to go will be looking to finish the year positively. NETBALL: Team 1: North Heidelberg (65) def Greensborough (47); Team 2: North Heidelberg (35) def by Craigieburn (43); Team 3: North Heidelberg (31) def Bundoora (30); Team 4: North Heidelberg (33) def Craigieburn (28); Team 5: North Heidelberg (21) def by Thomastown (36). In the run into finals we have three teams in contention so get behind the girls. AROUND THE CLUB: Saturday August 18 - $5K Draw at $55 per ticket, see Rick Thorneycroft; Friday October 5 – Presentation Night at Heidelberg Golf Club. With the home and away season nearing an end and with today our last home game of the year the committee extends a huge thank you to those involved on Saturday mornings and preparation during the week for our home games. To all volunteers in the canteen, those doing ground maintenance, cleaning and displaying sponsor banners you know who you are and 100% we would struggle without you. Great work by all. the trot, recording their second-straight win over Eltham, this time by 49 points. Jaylon Smith added three more goals to his season tally, with Tom Phelan successfully returning from a long injury layoff with three goals. Nathan Jasper was awarded best on ground, as big men Kynan Kett and Rayden Garrard were also listed among the best players. The boys now sit fourth, with a huge test against St Mary’s awaiting. WOMEN’S: Bowed out of the finals race last weekend, losing to Eltham by 26 points. Rachel Spencer and Giuseppina Tarantello were our goalkickers in the elimination final, Rebecca Buckley and Rita Slewa amongst the best players. A huge thanks for our coaches, players and administrators for helping make our first season with a women’s team so successful and enjoyable. We’re looking forward to bigger and better things in 2019! AROUND THE CLUB: Our annual $5000 Draw was a success, thanks to Terry and the committee everything ran smoothly on the day! On Saturday August 18 we host Bundoora, on the day we will be celebrating the 30 year anniversary of 1988 premiership. We’d love to see players, administrators and supporters back at the club to reminisce on the good old days.

A PLUS LABOUR SOLUTIONS DIVISION 2 - Preview FIVE INTO FOUR The top-four sides lock horns once again in A Plus

Labour Solutions Division 2, with the final two places in the finals still up for grabs entering Round 16. Eltham hosts Banyule at Eltham Central Park in the first of two top-four match-ups. If the previous encounter is anything to go by, we should be expecting another epic. The last time these two sides faced was back in Round 10, and it was the Panthers who prevailed by a solitary point, courtesy of a goal on the siren to Tom Rogers. The loss seems to have sparked the Bears, who have convincingly won four of their past five matches since. With Tim Currie, Josh Merkel and Gavan Connelly all returning, Eltham scored its biggest win of the season last weekend against the Fitzroy Stars. The Panthers piled on 17 goals to one after half time in the 149-point victory. Such was Eltham’s dominance, three players kicked in excess of five goals. Tim Currie was best afield with ten majors, while Brandon Freeman and Daniel Jarvis combined for 13. Banyule produced a similarly dominant display in its 105-point win over old foe Epping at R.J. Brockwell Oval. A strong percentage means Banyule could potentially win just one more match to play finals. Its final three opponents are Eltham, Fitzroy Stars and Lower Plenty. James Kroussoratis and Bailey Jordan were unstoppable last week, with the forwards kicking five goals apiece, while the latter also dished off a number of others in close range. Mannon Johnston, Michael Italia and Riley Hogarth also excelled. The second top-four clash of the round sees Thomastown return home to host an in-form Lower Plenty at Main Street Reserve. These two sides haven’t faced off since Round 1, where Lower kept the visitors goalless after half time in a 28-point win. Both sides come into this week’s encounter with plenty of momentum behind them. Thomastown scored its third win from its past four matches with a runaway 59-point triumph over Watsonia. Leading by just 17-points at three quartertime, Thomastown blew the game open in the last term with seven goals to one, with co-captains Matthew Vasilevski and Josh Beare dominant. Ben Chapman’s side sits a win and eight percent above fifth-placed Diamond Creek, ahead of a

by Ben Pascuzzi

massive three games against Lower Plenty, Epping and the Creekers. Two wins in those matches would likely give the club its first finals berth since 2014. Lower Plenty needs just one win from its final three matches to secure a double chance in the finals after scoring a 32-point win over Diamond Creek at Coventry Oval in Round 14. Jack Wilkinson had a debut to remember and finished with a game-high four goals. He and Ben Paterson combined for seven of their side’s 13 goals, while Jordan Sacco and Corey Sleep also featured in Lower’s best players in its third win on the trot. Watsonia hosts Epping at A.K. Lines Reserve. While the result won’t impact the finals race, both sides would love to secure a win late in the season. The Saints remain winless after losing to Thomastown last week. Once again, they were able to put together three good quarters, but were let down by a lapse in one term – which proved to be the last. Spencer Briggs, Gary Ring and Cooper Gunn gave their all in last week’s defeat, while Allan Young was the sole multiple goal kicker for the Saints with his bag of three goals, two of which came in the first quarter. A week after scoring its biggest win of the season, Epping was on the receiving end of its heaviest defeat of the campaign – smashed by Banyule in the club’s worst performance since returning to second division. The Blues trailed by 36 points at quarter time and never recovered. The performances of Leigh Judd, Reed Jepson, and Joel Carter were the only positive from the day. The final match of the round sees the Fitzroy Stars play their final home game of the season when they host Diamond Creek. Diamond Creek again finds itself outside the top-four after suffering its seventh loss of the season to Lower Plenty last week. Eleven wins could be required to play finals this year, meaning last year’s runners-up may have to win each of their final three games to play finals. Following this week’s trip to Fitzroy, the Creekers host Eltham and then travel to Thomastown. They hold a 0-4 record against the Panthers and Bears this season. Fitzroy enters this week’s match off the back of consecutive triple-digit figure defeats. Last week’s loss to Eltham was not only their biggest losing margin of the year, it was also the biggest tally conceded this season (202). Steven Stallion, Allan Norris and Jye Karpany never gave in, but the ladder-leader proved far too strong for their injury-depleted side. WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

A PLUS LABOUR SOLUTIONS DIVISION 2 ELTHAM This week Banyule come to Panther for the first time. THIS WEEK: With an after the siren win last time we met this should be another cracking game. The U19s (1) try and get their season back on track against Northcote Park at home and the (2)s travel to Mernda. The Panther Women’s move to the first semi final against VU Western Spurs 10am on Sunday at Epping. We also welcome all the ladies for the ladies’ lunch and hope they have an enjoyable day. LAST WEEK: Two solid wins by the senior sides against Fitzroy Stars keep both on top of the ladder. The U19s(1) came up against a very determined Greensborough for the second week in a row this time with a better showing but still going down, the U19(2)s played Mill Park and only had a thirdquarter fade out against the wind that cost them. The Eltham senior women’s side had great win against Greensborough in their first final. NEXT WEEK: The senior sides head to Diamond

BANYULE This week we travel to Eltham. SENIORS: Another impressive display from our senior side, who put in another four-quarter performance against our nemesis, Epping. Jordan and Kroussoratis combined for 10, with Bails also dishing off at least another three to our smaller forwards. Kelly, Smith, Loton, McDonald and Hogarth were all winning through the middle, whilst down back, Truefeldt and Biscontin were outstanding. Johnston and Italia, two boys who will be extremely important for us over the coming month, were probably our best two. The highlight of the day, however, was debut ruckman, Pat Molony goaling in the run in the second quarter and rightfully being mobbed by teammates from everywhere. Best: Smith, Johnston, Italia, Truefeldt, Jordan, Biscontin and Hogarth. RESERVES: Back at home last week taking on Epping and aiming for our first win at home for the year. With Borgy winning the toss and going with the wind, the boys started well. Alex was winning the hit outs out so our on-ballers were getting first use of the ball to kick some good early goals on the board. In the second 24

Creek for the second time this year. Both U19s will be back at home in a chance for people to see the future of the Club in two consecutive games U19(1)s against Montmorency and the U19(2)s against North Heidelberg, if you are not heading to Diamo stay home and watch two under-19 games.

Epping roved the first two centre hit outs straight off Alex to kick the first two inside a minute to put the pressure back on us, but the boys settled to kick away against the wind and Borgy kicked three for the quarter. The boys stood up in the second half with Jye Keith tackling everyone and the on-ballers getting on top, with a late last quarter charge from Epping getting back to three goals, the boys stood strong to hold on to a good win. Well done. Best: Yarwood, Alex, Jye, Borg and Coulson UNDER-19: On Saturday the boys took on Panton Hill, the bottom side. From the beginning of the morning the feeling in the rooms was a bit flat, considering we knew we were playing a weaker opposition. This isn’t something that we want to be having, only a month away from finals. Although we were flat, there was some impressive play and ball movement from the boys during the day. The dry conditions helped us a lot and a strong breeze to one end all day. We still weren’t overly content with how we played but we still got the victory by 30 points. We take on North Heidelberg, the other bottom side, this week at Shelley Park.

A PLUS LABOUR SOLUTIONS DIVISION 2 FITZROY STARS This week we have our last home game against

Diamond Creek in what is another opportunity to shape the finals. SENIORS: This game was always going to be a tough ask having to front up against the undefeated Panthers and the Stars with six of their best players unavailable. As expected the Panthers mauled us early, piling on eight goals in the first while the Stars fought back to add six of our own in the second quarter. This was a fairly competitive game at this stage which turned unfortunately one-sided after this point of the game. Although there were not many highlights for this particular game, one could only marvel at the expertise in which Ali slotted his first ever goal. The response was what you would have expected for a match-winning effort, but this was so much more considering where Ali has come from. Stevie Stallion never stopped trying while JD and Jye were heroic in their efforts against a tidal wave.

DIAMOND CREEK This week our seniors travel to Sir Douglas Nicholls Oval to take on the Fitzroy Stars.

SENIORS: A disappointing result against Lower Plenty, however we created enough opportunities, especially in the first quarter to win the game. We must continue to focus on the process and work hard on converting our opportunities. Looking forward to Fitzroy this week. RESERVES: A very solid performance saw us walk away with a hard-fought victory over Lower Plenty on Saturday. Our consistent work rate was very pleasing and every player on the field played their role. Kieran Brick had his best game since returning and Joe Langford was really strong off the half back line. UNDER-19: Not the result we were after against St Mary’s. We will continue to work hard and improve going forward. Let’s try and spoil the party for a few sides trying to play finals. An excellent performance by the four under-17s who stepped up and showed us that the future is bright. Best players included Donaldson, Hobbs, Noble, J Elzink and Whalley. NETBALL: Diamond Creek 1 had a bye. Diamond 26

RESERVES: The reserves with so many out again had a job to fill a side. The Ellis boys, including the elder statesman, were fighting for respect while everyone else who turned up wore the guernsey with pride. It would be just so great if we had more of the boys on the side lines watching, have a crack to help the club out. Well done to Leigh and the boys for never giving up because we all know how tough this is. NETBALL: The netballers had a good night on the courts with all three sides looking to push for September action. Our first side went down against Northcote Park 28-17 and copped a dressing down from the coach but remain in the four. Our second side went up against Macleod and were victorious 32-14, which has them just outside of the finals. Meanwhile, our third side got over the line against St Mary’s 29-25 which has them outside of the finals by percentage only. Great effort by our netballers. GO STARS!

Creek 2 (34) defeated St Mary’s 1 (15) After a scratchy start we kicked into form and built up a comfortable lead. Diamond Creek 3 (19) lost to Watsonia 1 (32) Keeping the top team within arm’s reach for three quarters, we couldn’t hold on throughout the final quarter. Diamond Creek 4 (37) defeated Kilmore 1 (12) Killed it from start to finish. Diamond Creek 5 (23) lost to Macleod 1 (36) Struggled to find out best line up against a tough opposition.

A PLUS LABOUR SOLUTIONS DIVISION 2 THOMASTOWN This week we host Lower Plenty. SENIORS: A really tight contest for three quarters against Watsonia on the weekend who really took the game up to us in blustery conditions. Pleasingly, we were able to finish the game off strongly to gain another valuable four points.

Tickets are $60 which covers the meal and entertainment, with drinks available at bar prices. Entertainment includes David Schwarz, Rodney Eade, Timmy Roberts and memorabilia auctions.

LOWER PLENTY This week we travel to Thomastown. FOOTBALL: Two out of three matches last round. Our cubs are sitting pretty comfortably on top of the ladder after downing South Morang last week. Sammy, Stags and Fitzy were the cub’s best for the day. This round we meet Heidelberg for the first time and last time before finals. Our reserves went down to Diamond Creek in a tight contest, but Diamond Creek ran away with the match in the last quarter. Desi, Lucas and Keenan were our best on a disappointing day. The seniors had a lot to prove as our last encounter with Diamond Creek did not go our way. They went out firing and had a comfortable win in the end. Debutant Jack Wilkinson had a productive day in front of goal, snagging four majors. Sacco, Sleepy and Patto were the sides best for the day. A six-goal win at the final siren. NETBALL: Our netball girls played their final match of this season and finished with a win against Heat. Thanks to all the supporters that came to watch the girls in their inaugural season. Bring on 2019! SOCIAL: A great night was had last Saturday night 28

sportsmen for the week after our actual function. Also, rumour has it Fazz is on track for a return from injury after 1276 days on the sidelines with a bruised knee. Some are saying it’s an even greater achievement than Alex Johnson’s return. Good luck Fazz.

A PLUS LABOUR SOLUTIONS DIVISION 2 WATSONIA This week we host Epping. AROUND THE CLUB: The week started with the fallout from a very interesting function the weekend before dominating the Watsonia headlines and those who were tough enough to brave the elements Tuesday were treated to some fun with 400s a plenty. Thursday came and saw a lot of plucky twos players gearing up for what seemed to be a season-defining game. Afterwards, the Hines Fines wheel delivered, with Patto having to share a moment of passion with Onion. UNDER-19: The boys kept their finals chances alive with a 10-goal win over Eltham, despite Riley and AJ being more concerned with wearing matching white jeans than helping their teammates win. RESERVES: Still buzzing off a thrilling win vs Diamond Creek, the game that had been pencilled in from what seems like the start of the year turned out to be anti-climatic, with the boys dispatching the fifth-placed Thomastown with relative ease to all but

EPPING This week we travel to Watsonia. SENIORS: Last game was pretty disappointing. Whilst we were quite undermanned in crucial positions we didn’t bring the effort that has been our trademark this season. Banyule are in white hot form and are a great chance come the finals. We will regroup this week, stick to the goals we have set ourselves and move forward. RESERVES: Unfortunately, we fell short, but certainly can’t question the endeavour from the players that pulled the jumper on. We gave everything we could right up to the final siren, so keep your heads up fellas and continue to fight the fight. Amongst the best were Sheriff, Riccardi, Fergs, Rosey, Adam, Ellis, Lewis and many more. JUNIORS: Congratulations to all our teams on making it into the finals this year. You have all had a fantastic year on and off the field we are extremely proud of all of you, and your achievements. Under 11s well done on making it into your first finals series, the boys have had a fantastic year unfortunately they didn’t get the outcome they were hoping for. Under 12 went up a division this year, well done on making 30

lock up a finals spot. Andy continued to work back in to form with a best on ground performance despite a heavy tag. Seal Pup continued his run of form with a dominant game on the wing while Fitzgerald was great in his first game back from Europe. A tough contest against a plucky Epping side awaits, with a win making a top-two spot still a possibility. SENIORS: Two first quarter goals to Allan Young had supporters up and about early and dreaming of an upset against an in-form Thomastown. But as good sides often do, eventually Thommo pulled away for a comfortable win over the seniors boys. Once again three quarters of good footy proved not to be enough. Pin was solid down back, Jonah was unreal to watch up forward with both his play and his lip, and Watto presented hard all day up forward. A shout out to Nords, Gaz, Ringy and Spence who more than held their own at 2pm after getting the call up. Shout out to Peety who spent the night in hospital after going back for a high ball. Hope you’re well mate. GO WATS! the finals again. I know you were all disappointed you couldn’t get over the line in the last game but hold your heads up high and be proud. Under 13s had a 15-point win. Fantastic team effort in what was always going to be tough contest against Research. You are straight into a grand final and we couldn’t be prouder. Good luck boys! SOCIAL: August 18 is the President’s Lunch. Twocourse lunch and guest speaker will be Alex Marcou, a local Thomastown player who went on to play with Carlton and then St Kilda. Cost will be $40 each, see Tags for tickets. Presentation Night is September 14 at The Regal Ballroom in Northcote kicking off with pre-dinner drinks and canapés at 6:30 pm SPONSORS: This week’s sponsor is Direct Cut, for all your concrete cutting give them a call on 0417 568 356 and Epping Timber for all your wood and building supplies and if you need a battery replaced of any auto-electrical work go and see Epping Battery Centre, show you club membership ticket for a generous discount.

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 - Preview TWO TO GO The ladder is beginning to take shape after Round 16 action of Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3.

Mernda journeyed to Lalor Reserve to take on Lalor. The Demons needed to return to the winners’ list after an upset loss the previous week against Kilmore. Mernda led all day and hung on to win by eight points. While it was a bit close for comfort, the Demons claimed the much needed four points – with Brad Dimech a standout. “Our fate is in our own hands,” Mernda coach Paul Derrick said. “Winning the next two games – it’s tough, but not impossible.” Regular top players Isaac Edgar and Daniel Moore did well for the Bloods, as did Daniel Langborne in his first senior game for the year, alongside brothers Jarrod and Jake. “Hopefully, we can finish off with a fortnight of competitive performances,” Lalor coach Dean Grainger said. Panton Hill hosted Reservoir at A.E. Cracknell Reserve and kicked a club-record score of 41.14 (260). The win gave the Redbacks a healthy percentage boost – with Matthew Byron booting 12 goals and Rhys Boyden 10 in the 227-point victory. Taylann Luckman played his best game for the Mustangs. South Morang faced a potential danger game against Heidelberg West at Heidelberg Park. But the Lions atoned for their Round 6 loss to the Hawks at Mill Park Lakes Reserve with a 41-point win. The win was set up by South Morang booting eight goals to two in the middle terms. The result sees the Lions safely in third place as they go to the bye, ahead of a Round 18 clash. Laurimar hosted Kilmore at Laurimar Reserve and kept its finals chances alive with an impressive 69-point win, led by Noel Murray and Vian Swanepoel. The Power’s performance was a pleasing turn-around from a disappointing loss to the Lions at Mill Park Lakes Reserve the previous week and keeps them in the finals picture. The ladder has St Mary’s clear on top by three games after its Round 16 bye. Panton Hill is second on ten wins. South Morang also has ten wins but trails the Redbacks by 24 percentage points. The Lions play St Mary’s at Whatmough Park after this week’s bye. Mernda is a game back in fourth place with a

by Doug Long

percentage of 116.61. The Demons sit a game ahead of Laurimar whose percentage is 102.97. The equation for the Demons is simple – win both games and they will play finals. However, if they drop one or more, then percentage may come into play. Mernda plays the top-two in the run home, while Laurimar plays the bottom-two teams. A key match-up in Round 17 action of Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3 is Lalor having back-to-back homes games when hosting Laurimar at Lalor Reserve. The Power can potentially be in the top-four with a win. This would require Mernda to lose and for the two margins to add up to 90 or more approximately. However, the Bloods almost caused a major upset last week at the same venue and would be keen to claim the scalp of a potential finalist. St Mary’s comes off the bye and travels to Waterview Recreation Reserve to play Mernda. The Burra are expected to be hot favourites despite having less incentive in the match – having already sewn up top spot. Based on recent form, it would be hard to tip the Demons, particularly after losing by close to tripledigits in the last meeting between the side. But they won’t leave anything out on the park in this encounter. Reservoir hosts Heidelberg West at Crispe Park in a match that has no bearing on the finals. However, both teams would like to finish the season well and the Hawks have the chance to move up a ladder position with a win. The Mustangs have elected not to continue with coach Aaron Collins next season, but he will coach out the season. David Nelson will take the reins in 2019. It has been a difficult period for Reservoir since they re-joined the league in 2017 – with virtually all the 2015 premiership players missing when the club re-formed. But they have survived, and the reserves team will feature in the 2018 finals series. Panton Hill makes its first journey to J.J. Clancy Reserve to clash with Kilmore. A win for the Redbacks will seal the double chance, so they have plenty of incentive. But the Blues upset a top four-team two weeks earlier and would be keen to finish their season with a win. Kilmore has the round 18 bye. WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 LALOR This week we host Laurimar. LAST WEEK: After some disappointing results over the last couple of weeks, it was very pleasing to see a strong performance by our senior side against Mernda in Round 16. Whilst we didn’t get the win – going down by eight points – it was great to see our undermanned side push fourth-placed Mernda all the way in windy conditions at Sydney Crescent. It was also fantastic to see all three Langborne brothers – Jarrod, Daniel and Jake – playing together for the first time in the senior side – a family name that has a long, proud history at our club. Well done fellas - rumour has it your old man is thinking of making a comeback! Unfortunately, our reserves team battled again – not helped by limited playing numbers – in the end they gallantly went down by 34 points. THIS WEEK: This week we’re at home for the last time this season against Laurimar. With it being our final home game and the beer marquee set-up for all our loyal Red & White Knight coterie members and Bloodsmen player sponsors. We’re hoping to get as much support as possible!

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 KILMORE This week we host Panton Hill. SENIORS: We travelled to Laurimar hopeful of a win after a good month of form. Unfortunately we were unable to continue that. Laurimar got on top midway through the first and never looked back. Leigh Irons played his heart out as he always does and gave plenty through the middle. Grant Paxton again rucked well and his follow up work was outstanding. Matt Swindells continued his late run of form and Jax Kinnear intercepted well in defence. Unfortunately it was no match for Laurimar who seemed to want it more right from the start. We now move on to Panton Hill at home in our last game for the season and hope to redeem ourselves. RESERVES: With only two games left a big effort was needed against the big bodied and fourth-placed Laurimar. Unfortunately it didn’t happen with the first half littered with skill errors and a lack of intensity around the ball. After a bit of a rev up at half time the boys responded an in the second half and the intensity and team work improved out of sight. We

PANTON HILL This week we travel to Kilmore. SENIORS: This week we played an undermanned Reservoir side who are just trying to survive in what has obviously been a tough year. That being said we were determined to make sure we firstly improved our game percentage and secondly tick all the key boxes as we continue to improve as a group to the standard we are clearly focused on. I must say we pretty much achieved everything and more in this game with some pretty slick ball movement. The twin towers dominated up forward with MB 12 goals and Boydo 10 thanks to our midfield dominance via Matty Fowler, Scott Conte, Dan Freeman, Tarco and JP, with all mids hitting the scoreboard. I am told that the score-line of 41 goals 14 points was a club record which was great but for us especially being our last game at home this season. It was about ensuring we continue to fine tune the group further which we achieved. This week is a different challenge taking on Kilmore on their ground where they have proven to be a strong opponent taking the league leaders to a close result recently, 42

eventually went down by five goals after staring down a huge defeat at half time. Jack Maher and Lachlan Gough worked hard through the midfield and Darcy Panyoitis again used the ball well out of defence. Last game this week so hoping for a massive effort to finish the season well.

so we look forward to maintaining our form with two rounds to go. RESERVES: The group came out hard from the start against Reservoir, causing pressure turnovers, and break structure which is a big positive. Unfortunately skill errors and wrong decisions at points hurt and gave them goals. But that’s footy! Well done boys lets continue our good progress last two games. UNDER-19: We played Banyule for the first time this season. With the top-four set, we knew Banyule would be preparing for finals and thought it would be a good opportunity to be more competitive. To outscore them in two quarters was a great effort. We eventually went down by only 30 points. There was further improvement by some of our younger boys against a quality opposition which was pleasing. With a bye this week, it will give some injured boys time to recover and prepare for our last game against Mill Park at home, the following Friday night. It would be great to see as many supporters as possible at the game to cheer on our young side in what has obviously been a long but enjoyable season.

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 MERNDA Biggest week at the Mernda Footy Club for quite

some time. An absolute must-win in all grades.

SENIORS: We got it done in the end in a scrap. It wasn’t a lot of fun to watch and credit to Lalor for going at it and responding after a couple of tough weeks. Lemo kicked three and Cawsey two. Must win this week. RESERVES: The twos were far too strong for Lalor, pulling away after half-time to win by six goals. Stavlich kicked three, Garra has continued his solid form since returning too. UNDER-19: From what I know, this is our first win at any level for a long, long time against Heidelberg and it’s a real credit to this group that they are showing how capable they are of going all the way. Nic and Fitzy kicked three each. Hard to say who was truly our best player as it was a complete team performance. Mick and Ben were absolutely thrilled with the performance to say the least. NETBALL: Fair to say the girls have led the way for

ST MARY’S This week we head to Waterview Recreational

Reserve to take on Mernda in a 1 vs 4 match up. UNDER-19: Take on Greensborough away this week in a 2 vs 4 match up. Last Saturday we took on Diamond Creek, finishing a windy match with a six- goal lead. This win has bumped us to sit in second position on the ladder. WOMEN’S: Our inaugural senior women’s team had their first final for the 2018 season. After finishing the season off sitting second on the ladder we were confident that our consistent playing ability would get us through the final against a competitive VU Western Spurs. With the wind playing havoc we figured out early in the first quarter we would need to play the ball low and utilise how handball skills to keep us on the board. Congrats to our Burra girls for finishing the final with a three-goal lead. This week we take on season rivals Bundoora in the second semi final at Epping Recreational Reserve. ST MARYS WHITE NETBALL: St Mary’s White saw

44

us this year which is a truly superb effort. Our Section 10 girls just missed out on top spot after beating West Ivanhoe, but will fancy themselves against Reservoir. Meantime, our Section 11 girls tuned up for finals, beating Heidelberg West in a strong performance. THIS WEEKEND: Five enormous games. Our netball girls kick things off this weekend with a chance to go straight into the Grand Final as they play Reservoir and Hurstbridge respectively. Saturday is Sponsors Day and it is an enormous game for our seniors and reserves against the minor premiers in St Mary’s, while our 19s play Eltham as they look to secure the double chance. GO DEES!

a very competitive first half against the top team Diamond Creek, with only a few goals separating it at half time. Diamond Creek upped their anti in the second half and unfortunately, we were unable to match it with them seeing a 19-goal deficit at the end of the match. ST MARYS TEAL NETBALL: With an all-important 1st v 3rd match it was Heidelberg who took the initial lead at quarter time, however it was Burra who came out firing after quarter time to capitalise on all turnovers winning every quarter and securing top spot with a 7-goal win! Score: 34-27. ST MARYS BLACK NETBALL: Burra had the early lead in the match by up to nine goals over the Fitzroy Stars. Although unfortunately due to a knock to the knee to Hannah, it saw us playing most of the second half with only six players on court and without any of our usual shooters! The girls put on a great fight but ended up losing the match by four goals. GO BURRA!

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 RESERVOIR This week we host Heidelberg West. SENIORS: It was always going to be difficult taking on Panton Hill at their home ground. A very disappointing day for us. We did not show any passion to play for the jumper. Panton Hill showed why they are the team to beat, handing us a 40-goal defeat. Best: T. Luckman, D. McGregor, C. Emmett, R. Miller, L. Shaw, M. Perichon. RESERVES: We needed to back up our effort from the St Mary’s game to secure a finals spot and after quarter time we played like a finals side. Even with a few injuries, we still had a convincing win. Potsy was back kicking five and Azza Culps chipped in with three. No doubt we will hear for a while about his mark over their ruckman. Congrats on making finals but the real work starts now. Also, congrats to coach Crackers on becoming a grandfather for the first time. Best: A. Altham, A. Lanning, E. Maloney, S. Potter, R. Toet, D. Lewis.

NETBALL: For the third week running we have two different results. Although the 1s threw everything they had into the bag, they didn’t get the win they were hoping for.

ANZ NFNL WOMEN’S Review QUALIFYING AND ELIMINATION FINALS The ANZ NFNL Women’s finals series begun in

incredible fashion, with the qualifying and elimination finals offering close results at Epping Recreation Reserve Bendigo needed extra time to overcome VU Western Spurs 6.9 (45) to 4.7 (31) in the qualifying final. The Thunder kicked two goals to one to take an eight-point lead into half-time. Both sides only managed behinds in a hard-fought third term and the Thunder held a nine-point lead at the final change. In an enthralling fourth quarter, the determined Spurs hit back and outscored the Thunder 3.4 to 2.1 to tie the match at 31 points apiece. The Thunder showed all their class in extra time to produce two goals and a 14-point win. Lauren Datson and Jacinta Louttit were pivotal in getting the Thunder over the line, while Caitlyn Brown and Stephanie Holland excelled for the Spurs. Diamond Creek Women’s advanced into week two of the finals with a 6.5 (41) to 2.7 (19) win over Darebin. After suffering a two-point defeat to the Falcons only three weeks ago, the Creekers came out firing, kicking the opening two goals via Isabella Farchione and Linda Thorp to take an 11-point lead into quarter time. Kicking with the wind in the second term, the Falcons only managed to add two behinds and were hurt by Brittany Grech’s stellar banana from the pocket, which handed the Creekers a 16-point half time lead. The Creekers produced a terrific third term, controlling the play and adding three goals to the scoreboard to ice the game. In the fourth quarter, consolations goals came for the Falcons via Stephanie NormingtonDickens and Sabine Cowley Du Parquet. Shae-Lee Murphy-Burke had plenty of the ball and Brittany Grech kicked three goals to contribute to the Creekers win, while Falcons captain Shannon Egan excelled. In Division 2, the VU Western Spurs moved into the second semi-final, defeating La Trobe University 5.6 (36) to 5.1 (31) in a hard-fought match. The Spurs kicked the first two goals in the opening quarter and gained a 15-point advantage before La Trobe responded with a two-goals to one second term to close the gap to nine points. A strong third quarter by the Spurs saw them add two goals to the scoreboard and stretch their lead out to 24 points by the final change. Two early fourth quarter goals for La Trobe gave them a chance at pinching the match and a Kaitlyn Ritchie goal brought them within five points in the final five minutes. Olivia Osborne and Brittany

Salt were fantastic for the Spurs, while Kate Bond and Stephanie Castagnini carried their strong form into the finals series for La Trobe. Montmorency produced a 9.6 (60) to 6.6 (42) victory over South Morang to move into week two of the finals. With the wind blowing heavily in their favour, the Magpies made the most of their opportunities and kicked five goals in a superb opening quarter display. Making the most of their time with wind once again in the third term, the Magpies got out to a 56-point lead thanks to goals from Lauren Dow, Bayes and Teisha Parkinson. Two goals by Shenay Reeves in the span of five minutes to begin the fourth quarter kick-started a late momentum surge for the Lions, who proceeded to add four more goals in a display that closed them to within 18 points and would have had the Magpies grateful for the final siren. Lauren Dow and Madison Bayes played crucial roles in setting up Montmorency’s win, while Cassie Hurst ended her outstanding season named as the best performing Lion for the fifth time. In Division 3, St Mary’s defeated VU Western Spurs 4.11 (35) to 2.3 (15) in the qualifying final. The Burra secured the opening two goals of the match to grab a 15-point lead, before the Spurs booted their first goal to close the gap to nine points at the main break. A great premiership quarter from the Burra saw them dominate the play and stretched their lead out to a match-winning 27 points at three quarter time, with the Spurs unable to hunt down the deficit in the fourth quarter. Taylor Marshall and Emily Temple were fantastic for the Burra while Eden Cassar and Ashley Gulka were stalwarts for the Spurs. Eltham kept their season alive with a 4.18 (42) to 2.4 (16) victory over Greensborough. Early goals to Kate Cardamone and Rhiannon Burleigh gave the Panthers a 16-point quarter time lead. The Boro responded with goals from Rachel Spencer and Giuseppina Tarantello to close the deficit to just six points by half time. Eltham’s inaccurate third quarter saw Maegan Devine’s goal sandwiched in between eight behinds, but nonetheless they stretched their lead out to 20 points by the final change. Cardamone’s second goal early in the fourth quarter ensured the Panthers ended their day on a high note as they ran away 26-point winners. Kate Cardamone and Leah Darcy were named best afield for the victors, while Olivia Angwin and Rebecca Buckley were the best performers for the Boro – who bowed out of the finals with the defeat. WWW.

Section 1 – South Morang 1 vs Heidelberg 1 A tight contest between South Morang and

Heidelberg saw the Tigers come out on top and leapfrog their opponent into fourth spot on the Section 1 ladder. South Morang came out strong in the opening minutes of the first quarter with GS Mahalia Rank and GA Tayla Hardiman shooting their team ahead 6-0, capitalising on Heidelberg’s early mistakes. Heidelberg struggled early to move the ball into their shooting circle with tight one on one defensive pressure from South Morang forcing Heidelberg to go backwards before moving forwards. South Morang C Samara Harris and WA Lauren O’Hehir put on a feeding masterclass throwing the ball into their shooters with precision, despite good pressure from their opponents Heidelberg C Claire Henderson and WD Georgia Harper. During the second half of the first quarter, South Morang started to make a few mistakes resulting in Heidelberg making the most of the turnovers to come back, sitting only a goal behind the Lions at the end of the quarter. The two sides traded goal for goal throughout the second quarter as intensity continued to build. Defensive pressure from Heidelberg defenders GD Mackenzie Blakey and GK Vanessa Rischitelli slowed South Morang with intercepts and deflections hurting the Lions. However, South Morang defenders GK Olivia Pels and GD Michelle Millhouse put the Tigers under just as much pressure, creating turnovers that went in South Morang’s favour. Some late challenges from Heidelberg saw contact calls go against the side often in the second quarter, however, they kept up with South Morang for scores to be level at half time. The two teams continued to be neck and neck in the first few minutes of the third quarter before a misdirected pass from South Morang allowed Heidelberg GA Lauren Jones to shoot her team ahead by three goals. Down by three South Morang quickly responded with GD Millhouse intercepting the ball and GA Rank scoring to swing momentum back their way.

56

However, shortly after Tigers WD Henderson intercepted a South Morang throw in which gave her team the centre pass advantage again with another goal. As Heidelberg were starting to get on top of South Morang a bit of push and shove from the Tigers across the court saw the Lions continue to score and keep the margin close. Nerves started to show in the final few minutes of the third quarter for South Morang with Heidelberg GK Rischitelli doing well to position her body and rebound missed goals from the Lions’ shooters. Four goals separated the teams heading into the final quarter with Heidelberg in front. South Morang were swift to move off their first centre pass with GS Hardiman scoring before scoring again. As scores narrowed Heidelberg lifted with C Harper moving quickly down the court to find space and feed the ball into her teammates. Despite some good passages of play, South Morang faded as the quarter went on, allowing Heidelberg to get out to a six-goal lead. Heidelberg WD Henderson came off the court with roughly three minutes remaining calling an injury time. South Morang managed to halt Heidelberg’s flow of goals during the final few minutes of play to trim the difference in scores, however, they ran out of time to catch up to Heidelberg. FINAL SCORE: Heidelberg 1 (48) def South Morang 1 (46)

Section 1 – North Heidelberg 1 vs Greensborough 1 With finals just around the corner second and thirdplaced Greensborough and North Heidelberg faced off on in an important Section 1 match in Round 1.

In what started as a close match, the sides were split by a single point at half time, but by the second half the match took a turn in favour of the Bulldogs. Tight defence by Lauren Byrnes and Kristie Parks of North Heidelberg forced the ball to be passed over the circle to Greensborough’s mid-court in an attempt to free up space. North Heidelberg GS Rebecca Colwell used her height to her advantage in the shooting circle, owning the space beneath the ring to score 11 of her side’s 13 goals in the first quarter. Just in front at quarter time by two goals, North took the first centre of the second quarter. Boro’s GK Charlie Seivers tapped the ball out of reach from her opponent, as Boro teammate Rebecca McDonagh backed up her defender and fed the ball down court for the first goal of the quarter. An intercept by Greensborough C Olivia Ellis fed the ball back to the Boro shooters who tied the game at 13 all. North Heidelberg had many moments throughout first half where they would pull in front, but each time they did, Greensborough would respond and reign in the deficit However, Greensborough were caught behind their opponents in the third quarter – often allowing North Heidelberg to steal possession. The Bulldogs capatalised on these turnovers, putting through eight goals before Greensborough scored one in the third term. North Heidelberg’s players made leads at the right times to move the ball down the court steadily. The Bulldogs had gone close to cementing their win by three quarter time, pushing ahead to a 13-goal advantage. The Boro started the fourth off well with the opening two goals. WD Adele Cosma had a great start to the term, shut down her opponent in the goal third and reading the ball well for an intercept. However, Greensborough soon fell into the same pattern as the third quarters, making a number of

poor passing choices and turning over the ball too many times. North Heidelberg once again made its opponent pay for its mistakes, extending out its lead to 18 goals by match end The win bumped them the Bulldogs up to second place on the ladder at Greensborough’s expense, with the Boro now sitting third despite being the only team to topple ladder-leader Diamond Creek this season.
