BDAFL Round 11 Report/Results

In Round 11 of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup first-placed Terrigal Avoca, who kept their unbeaten start to the season with a win over second placed Cardiff, whilst Killarney Vale were no match for Nelson Bay.

In the Match of the Round, a typically stingy Terrigal Avoca defence were in complete control of a depleted Cardiff forward line in shaping a very convincing 53-point defeat of the Hawks. Final scores were Terrigal Avoca 13.12.90 to Cardiff 5.7.37.

The Panthers were 32 points up at quarter time and were never troubled by the second-placed Cardiff outfit. Cardiff put men behind the ball in the final three quarters to stem the flow.

Ryan Webster and Daniel Heuston starred up front for the Panthers, kicking four goals apiece. Webster’s speed and sticky hands were a nightmare for the Hawks defensive six.

Jarrad Flint was superb for the Panthers, plucking at least 10 intercept marks at centre-half back. Other fine players for the undefeated Terrigal Avoca were Jayson Van Dam, Webster, Heuston and Jackson Farquhar.

Cardiff’s Jack Lennon was outstanding in a well-beaten side, supported by Toby Machart, David O’Donnell and Simon O’Brien.

At Dick Burwell Oval, Nelson Bay responded to last weeks shellacking at the hands of Newcastle City by methodically disposing of Killarney Vale, 18.6.114 to 6.6.42.

Nelson Bay were never troubled kicking the first six goals of the game, with Killarney Vale’s first goal not coming until the five minute mark of the second quarter.

The Marlins continued their dominance in the third quarter kicking five unanswered goals before running out 72 point winners, the second time this year they have easily accounted for the Bombers at home.

The Bombers were best served by Ryan Barrett, Max Mumford, Lachlan Waters and Harley Beckett.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Wyong Lakes moved into second position on the ladder with an easy win over The Entrance Bateau Bay.

In the GE Womens Competition, Gosford had to work hard to defeat Killarney Vale by 27 points in a torrid contest whilst Wyong Lakes pushed reigning premiers, Nelson Bay before going down by 36 points..

BDAFL Round 10 Results

Black Diamond AFL Review/Results - Round 10

Terrigal Avoca maintained their unbeaten start to the year in the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition with a 11.15.81 to 4.3.27 win over Warners Bay, a loss which sees the Bulldogs remain winless for 2017.

The game at Feighan Oval started in enterprising fashion with both teams keen on quick ball movement and play on at all costs.

Terrigal Avoca had the early ascendancy but wasted opportunities before a goal off the ground to Warners Bay’s Dave McGuiness against the run of play opened the goal scoring for the day.

Panthers ruckman, Sam Ellis, who was superb all day responded almost immediately, however from this point on Warners Bay gained the upper hand to kick the next three goals to take a 13-point lead into the first change.

That was as good as the Bulldogs got however as the Panthers began to dominate the clearances and their superior defensive pressure prevented Warners Bay from kicking another goal for the game and in fact were kept scoreless in both the second and final quarters.

Terrigal Avoca’s ability to shut down the game and turn it into a stoppage battle which was dominated by Ellis and Will Delahunty was key to their success and allowed Kurt Fleming to use and pace and skill on the outside to ensure most of the game was played in Terrigal Avoca’s forward half.

Newcomer Daniel Heuston was excellent on debut rewarding himself with two goals whilst Corey Billins (two goals) and Ryan Webster (three goals) were also dangerous up forward.

Only downside for the Panthers was the reoccurrence of a thigh injury to former coach and influential midfielder, Chris Bishop which will have him in doubt for next week’s blockbuster against Cardiff.

Cardiff maintained their moniker as “The Cardiac Kids” with a come-from-behind 11-point win over Killarney Vale at Adelaide St Oval. Final scores were Cardiff 14.7.91 to Killarney Vale 12.8.80.

Cardiff were three points down at three-quarter time but kicked two priceless last-quarter goals whilst holding the Bombers to three behinds in the last stanza. The Bombers actually kicked seven goals to five in the first quarter but could only manage five majors for the rest of the match.

Coach Scott Reed and Harley Bernleitner kicked four goals each for a gallant Bombers outfit.

Killarney Vale’s best players were Josh Mifsud, Ryan Barrett, ruckman Tim Oosterhoff and Max Mumford.

Next week, Killarney Vale travel to Nelson Bay and in a blockbuster BARTV Match of the Round, first-placed Terrigal Avoca host second-placed Cardiff at Hylton Moore Oval. All games commence at2.00pm.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Gosford moved back into the top four with a comfortable win over The Entrance Bateau Bay whilst Wyong Lakes remain in third position with a win over Lake Macquarie at Don Small Oval.

In the GE Women’s competition, Gosford moved into second position with a win over Warners Bay whilst Killarney Vale and Wyong Lakes also had wins over Cardiff and Lake Macquarie respectively to maintain their position in the final six.

Wet weather greeted players in Round 9 of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition with Terrigal Avoca keeping their unbeaten record in tact whilst Killarney Vale lost a tight encounter against Newcastle City.

Undefeated Terrigal Avoca withstood an enormous challenge from a determined Nelson Bay before kicking three goals into the breeze in the last quarter to run out 22-point victors at Hylton Moore Oval. Final scores were Terrigal Avoca 10.13.73 to Nelson Bay 7.9.51.

In a match played in varying conditions, including steady rain, Nelson Bay kicked the first two goals of the match before the League leaders steadied, kicking the next 5 goals.

The two teams traded blows until the last quarter, when two Jeremy Eddy goals got Nelson Bay back to just 9 points behind. The Panthers steadied in the final 15 minutes of the game, keeping the Marlins goal-less as they finished with the finals two goals whilst keeping the ball in their forward 50m arc for long periods.

Brandon Thomas (two goals), rovers Corey Billins and Chris Bishop, backline general James Hart and Jay Lewis were best for an even and disciplined Panthers outfit.

The night game, played in persistent rain, saw Newcastle City hold on to defeat and a gallant Killarney Vale side 5.6.36 to 3.10.28 at No 1 Sportsground.

Newcastle City had the better of the early exchanges with Cameron Keast kicking the first two goals of the game. Killarney Vale were having enough of the football but were unable to convert with veteran Dane Amidy kicking the only goals for the Bombers in the first half, desoite having seven shots on goal. A long goal from Newcastle City key forward just before half time saw the Blues take a nine point into the long break.

The rain caused the game to be a battle of attrition and tough for the players, none who shirked an issue. Goals to Conor Haswell and aaron seen, two of the Blues best after half time gave their team a valuable break but the Bombers were not about to give in and a goal to coach Scott Reed reduced the margin to 13 points at the final break.

The last quarter was all Killarney Vale’s as the continued to attack however resolute defence from Newcastle City led by Haswell and Ian Baker only allowed a goal to Alex Bailey for the term and when the final siren sounded the Blues prevailed by eight points.
Josh Mifsud, Max Mumford, Ryan Barrett and Jimmy Kidd were the pick for Killarney Vale.

In the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Plate competition, Muswellbrook put in their best performance for the year however still went down to Terrigal Avoca by seven points. Newcastle City outlasted Gosford by ten points, with star Goalkicker Courtney Knight making his return to the playing field, finishing with two goals. The two leading teams Maitland and Singleton proved two strong for The Entrance Bateau Bay and Lake Macquarie respectively, whilst Wyong Lakes had the bye.

In the GE Women’s competition, Newcastle City and Nelson Bay remain undefeated with wins over Killarney Vale and Maitland, although both had to work hard for the wins.

Gosford, Lake Macquarie & Nelson Bay – Byes

In the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup, there were wins to undefeated Terrigal Avoca, Killarney Vale and a four-point win to Cardiff over Nelson Bay.

For the second time this season, Nelson Bay & Cardiff produced an absolute thriller in the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup fixture played at Dick Burwell Oval.

Both teams kicked two goals in the second half after being tied 6.8.44 apiece at half-time. Cardiff held on to win by a mere four points, with final scores being Cardiff 8.19.67 to Nelson Bay 8.15.63.

David O’Donnell managed three priceless goals for the Hawks, whilst veteran Nick Kocon kicked two goals for his beloved Hawks.

The Hawks’ best players were Simon O’Brien, O’Donnell, Kieren Bellemore, Tom Yensch, Zac Metcalfe and Trent Thompson.

Representative player Todd Thornton and veteran Aaron Clayden both kicked goals each for the Marlins, who are now three games adrift of second-placed Cardiff.

Best players for the Marlins were Elliott Davey Medallist Jayden Rymer, Louis Dews, Chris & Jeremy Eddy, Billy Barton and skipper Tim Divall.

Terrigal Avoca, led by Jay Lewis with five goals, disposed of Newcastle City by 47 points in a clinical victory at Hylton Moore Oval. Final scores were Terrigal Avoca 13.11.89 to Newcastle City 6.6.42.

In addition to Lewis’ five goals, the brothers Van Dam (Jayson and Peter) managed two goals each for the Panthers. Terrigal Avoca were best served by Will McKellar, Kurt Fleming, Jarrad Flint, Jayson Van Dam, Alexander White and Brandon Thomas.

Jackson Crawford was almost a lone hand up front for City with three goals. City were best served by Hugh Blanchfield, Crawford, Aaron Seen, Liam Dwyer, Conor Haswell and Stephen Batten.

In the BARTV Match of the Round, ruckman Tim Oosterhoff produced a five-star performance against three opponents to lead his Killarney Vale Bombers to an 11-point victory over Warners Bay at Feighan Oval. Final scores were Killarney Vale 12.9.81 to Warners Bay 11.4.70.

Oosterhoff was simply outstanding on the ball all day, against Ben Crawley, Tom McDonell (until the tyro Bulldog ruckman was taken to Hospital for checks on a badly-injured back) and replacement ruckman Jake Roach.

Sitting a kick behind the play, Oosterhoff controlled the stoppages and produced many intercepts in a display that showed he was perhaps unlucky in missing out on a rep jumper last week. He was ably supported by coach Scott Reed, who kicked five goals in an excellent display, the returning Josh Mifsud, James Kidd, Kyall Walford and Nathan Higgins.

Warners Bay will lament quiet patches in the first and third quarters, kicking just one goal in each. The Bulldogs exploded with five goals in the second quarter and four in the last but couldn’t quite get over the line once again.

Corey Deverell and Matt Spinks kicked two goals apiece in their small forward roles. The Bulldogs best players were Rob Schindler-Taylor, Jake Roach,Luke Roach, Kernahan, Tom Prentice and Nick Turner.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Wyong Lakes pulled off the upset of the season so far in defeating the previously undefeated Singleton by 22 points at Rose Point Park, and in doing so, relegated the Roosters to third place on the ladder; Maitland, now in first place in the Plate, defeated Terrigal Avoca by 45 points at East Gosford; Newcastle City won at Passage Road over hosts The Entrance Bateau Bay and Gosford defeated a gallant Muswellbrook at Adcock Park.

In the GE Women’s competition Killarney vale defeated Warners Bay by nine points in a tight contest at Feighan Oval. Lake Macquarie recorded their first win with a win over Newcastle. Wyong Lakes were made to work hard before defeating Singleton whilst Newcastle City, Nelson Bay and Gosford all recorded comfortable wins.

BDAFL Representative Round Results

Hunter Haval Black Diamond AFL Review/Results

Representative Football made its welcome return to the Black Diamond Football League on Saturday, with the BDAFL hosting AFL Sydney in both Womens and Mens matches at the home of the Killarney Vale AFC, Adelaide St Oval in Tumbi Umbi.

In an outstanding game of Mens football, the lead changed several times in the first three quarters until AFL Sydney steadied in the last 30 minutes to eventually run out 26-point victors, with final scores being AFL Sydney 1712.114 to the BDAFL 14.4.88.

Maitland’s Pat McMahon was once again outstanding at the highest level, kicking five goals in a virtuoso performance at centre-half forward. Warners Bay’s Ben Kernahan and Killarney Vale player-coach Scott Reed chipped in with two goals each.

Conor Haswell was named as the BDAFL’s best player, thwarting many AFL Sydney attacking raids with strong intercept marks. He was ably supported by Corey Billins, Pat McMahon (who dominated the first half), Zac Metcalfe, Aaron Seen and Alex Mitchell.

The AFL Sydney Womens team produced four very solid and accomplished four quarters in despatching the BDAFL by 62 points. Final scores were AFL Sydney 10.12.72 to the BDAFL 1.4.10.

The BDAFL side was able to match their more fancied opponents around the ground but struggled to convert their forward entries into scoring opportunities.

The BDAFL were best served by Alison Parkin, Kailee Goodwin , Paige Mathewson, Sarah Burns and Bec Ives with Sarah Halvorsen also had a strong game kicking BDAFL’s solitary goal.

In the Black Diamond Plate, there were wins to Wyong Lakes, Muswellbrook in an historic first ever Plate victory, Maitland and Terrigal Avoca.
