Round 2 action of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup saw an Alex Wells goal after the siren give Killarney Vale a one point win over Warners Bay, Terrigal Avoca defeated Newcastle City by 36 points in a rematch of the 2016 Grand Final and Cardiff held on against a fast-finishing Nelson Bay to win a crucial away game by 10 points.

Killarney Vale and Warners Bay were dead-level at 6.4.40 apiece heading into the last quarter at Adelaide St Oval in Tumbi Umbi. Warners Bay surged to an 11-point lead in the 25th minute of the final quarter after a Tristan Warner major and looked home. A mark and goal to youngster Harley Berleitner brought the margin to five points and with only seconds on the clock a “hail mary” kick into the goal square saw Bomber forward, Alex Wells take an excellent pack mark and with the siren already gone, went back and kicked the match winning goal.

Jack Nancarrow kicked three goals for Killarney Vale with their best being captain Josh Mifsud, Rick White, Kyall Walford, Wells, Max Mumford and Connor Reilly.

In the BARTV Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup Match of the Round saw Terrigal Avoca face regular Grand Final opponent Newcastle City at a firm and dry Hylton Moore Oval. The Panthers were too strong for the Blues, running out victors 12.7.79 to City’s 6.7.43.

Jay Lewis, Lachlan White and livewire forward Kurt Fleming kicked two goals apiece for the Panthers. Nick Gill played a lone hand up forward for City, managing two goals.

Terrigal Avoca’s decision to put up to three backmen on Gill paid handsome dividends, with City having no targets up forward other than the ex-Adelaide Crow. Jimmy Hart and Corey Billins often dropped off their man to nullify Gill, with Alastair Richardson picking up many marks and touches playing about twenty metres in front of Gill as a loose man in defence.

Panthers Coach Mark Skuse, himself a solid performer on the day, was a content man after the game. He praised Brandon Thomas, the entire defensive unit and the performance of Richardson in the unexpected role of loose man in defence.
Skuse is looking forward to the return of the Van Dam brothers and James Webster in coming weeks, saying the first two games before Easter has set the Panthers on course for a very good season. Skuse also praised the culture at Terrigal Avoca, stating that taking over from Chris Bishop as Coach has been seamless and that the players had bought into his coaching style and philosophy.

Terrigal Avoca’s best players were Hart, Richardson, Davis, Thomas, Lachlan White and Damen Smith.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Terrigal Avoca came from behind at three-quarter time to defeat Newcastle City; Singleton were too strong for Gosford and Wyong Lakes had a comfortable win over Muswellbrook at Tulkaba Oval.

In the GE Women’s competition, Warners Bay defeated Maitland by 14 points in a hard fought encounter at Max McMahon Oval, Killarney Vale overcome Lake Macquarie by 28 points, Nelosn Bay, Gosford and Wyong Lakes were too strong for Cardiff, Singleton and Wyong Lakes respectively whilst in the Friday night game Newcastle City had too many guns for Newcastle Nova’s.

In Reserve Grade, there were wins for Terrigal Avoca, Killarney Vale at home over Lake Macquarie, Cardiff, Gosford and Warners Bay.

There will a general bye in the Hunter Haval Black Diamond AFL competition for Easter next weekend with all competitions to resume on 22 April.
