It was contrasting emotions for the Central Coast teams in Round 17 of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition with Terrigal Avoca winning by three points with Killarney Vale losing by six points.

The Old Firm of Terrigal Avoca and Newcastle City produced a sensational game of football at No.1 Sportsground. The Panthers, who kicked eight goals in the first half but just one in the second half, just held on against a fast-finishing Newcastle City to run out three-point winners, 9.14.68 to City’s 9.11.65.

Alexander White’s 5th minute goal in the third quarter enabled the Panthers to go to 15-1 on the season, despite Newcastle City kicking the final three goals of the match. The Panthers reknowned defence held on for the final 14 minutes of the game, keeping the Blues goal-less in a backs to the wall performance fitting of the minor premiers.

Sam Ellis and James Webster kicked two goals each for Terrigal Avoca, who were best served by James Hart, Peter Van Dam, Ellis, Corbin Bond, Jack Fitzgerald and Jackson Farquhar.

Warners Bay kept their finals hopes alive with a thrilling six-point win over a gallant Killarney Vale at Adelaide St Oval. Final scores were Warners Bay 10.11.71 to Killarney Vale 10.5.65.

League leading goalkickers Scott Reed (Bombers) and Kayne Gibbs (Bulldogs) had a great duel at opposite ends of the ground, kicking five goals apiece in a low-scoring thriller in front of a healthy crowd at Tumbi Umbi.

Gibbs, benefitting from a downfield free-kick after an ill-timed push in the back, kicked the winning goal in the 25th minute of the last quarter of an exciting, pulsating Black Diamond Cup clash.

Kyall Walford played very well for the Bombers, well-supported by fullback Ryan Barrett, Brendan Lewis, Max Mumford, Harley Bernleitner and Shaun Sinclair.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Newcastle City clinched fourth position with a 50 point win over Terrigal Avoca, Gosford saw off a dogged Lake Macquarie by 20 points and Wyong Lakes came away from their trip to Muswellbrook with a solid 50-point win over the Cats.

In GE Women’s, Killarney Vale defeated Warners Bay to claim the last final position with wins also to Gosford, and Wyong Lakes. All teams will compete in the finals which commence next Saturday.

Terrigal Avoca claimed their fourth Minor Premiership in the past five years whilst Killarney Vale went down to second placed Cardiff in Round 16 of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition.

At Hylton Moore Terrigal Avoca had to overcome a dogged Warners Bay outfit before claiming the Minor Premiership Trophy with a 15.7.97 to 9.7.61 win.

A car mishap on the M1 caused a delay to the start of the match between Terrigal Avoca and Warners Bay, however that did not stop the Bulldogs from starting strongly and lead by ten points at the first change.

As they do when challenged, the Panthers responded and with three time Elliott Davey Medallist, James Webster making a seemless return to football, kicked the next eight goals to open up a 37 point lead.

The Marty Reiman led Bulldogs, are a different beast in 2017 and led by Jake Roach and Rob Schindler-Taylor kicked the next four goals to cut the margin to just 11 points at the final change and an upset was brewing.

The experienced Terrigal Avoca line-up however were able to steady in the last quarter before kicking away to win by 38 points.

Coach Mark Skuse and the in-form first year player Dan Heuston kicked three goals apiece for the Panthers, who once again had an even spread of goalkickers.

Jack Grimmond was Terrigal Avoca’s best, well supported by Heuston, Chris Bishop, 150 gamer, James Hart, Webster and Skuse.

Cardiff returned to the winners’ circle with a solid 55-point win over Killarney Vale at Hillsborough Oval. Final scores were Cardiff 16.15.111 to Killarney Vale 9.2.56.

Max Mumford kicked three goals for the Bombers, supported by coach Scott Reed with two majors. The Bombers’ best players were Trent Debnam, Ryan Barrett, Sam Jabour and Harley Bernleitner.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Gosford and Terrigal Avoca kept their finals hopes alive with wins over Newcastle City and Lake Macquarie respectively whilst Singleton were too strong The Entrance Bateau Bay.

In the GE Women’s competition, Wyong Lakes have taken a big step in making the finals for the first time with a five point win over Killarney Vale which following Warners Bay’s loss to Singleton will see Killarney Vale and Warners Bay effectively meeting in an elimination final next week. Gosford were no match for unbeaten league leaders Newcastle City.

With the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition having a general bye all eyes centred on Newcastle No 1 Sportsground for the annual GE Women’s Round. Six highly entertaining games were played with Gosford, Wyong Lakes and Killarney Vale all recording wins.

Gosford reinforced their credentials as the team most likely to challenge the top two teams, Newcastle City and Nelson Bay with a convincing 15.8.,98 to 0.4.4 win over Warners Bay who were missing a number of their key players.

With captain Alison Parkin returnning to the team the Tigers dominated the game for the outset.
