A mixed day for the Central Coast teams in Round 4 winners in the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition.

In the battle of the unbeaten teams, Terrigal Avoca flexed their muscles with a 20.15.135 to 8.7.55 win over Cardiff at Hylton Moore Oval.

The Panthers had to withstand a strong early challenge from the Hawks before stamping their authority after half time to win by 80 points.

Cardiff were missing a number of players and then lost Liam Gibson and Jack Pratt early in the game, however they had no answer to Terrigal Avoca’s running game and pressure often turning the ball at crucial times.

200 gamer, Jayson Van Dam kicked the first goal of the game with both teams trading goals for Terrigal Avoca to lead by six points at quarter time.

Panthers coach Mark Skuse had done his home work on the Hawks with plenty of pressure being applied to Cardiff’s prime movers Tom Yensch, Marcus de Lear and Simon O’Brien.

Terrigal Avoca opened up the second term with the first three goals, however the Hawks were able to answer with two of their own before late goals to the Panthers saw them lead by 24 points at half time.

With the Cardiff bench lacking personnel, Terrigal Avoca tightened the screws with their miserly defence and by keeping the Hawks goalless in the third quarter they were able to open up a 40 point lead at the final change.

With Cardiff resistance broken, the Panthers ran amok in the final quarter to record an 80 point win, a margin which was not a true reflection on the contest.

Kurt Fleming was outstanding for the winners picking up numerous possessions around the ground and also kicking four goals. Veterans Peter Van Dam and Alastair Richardson made great returns after missing last week, whilst coach Mark Skuse is a smooth mover. Sam Ellis had a great battle in the ruck with Yensch whilst Damen Smith was part of a strong back six.

Nelson Bay responded from two consecutive losses with a comprehensive 22.16.142 to 10.8.68 win over Killarney Vale at Dick Burwell Oval.

It was tough day at the office for Killarney Vale who were still missing a number of key players including their two best Rick White and Josh Mifsud.

Coach Scott Reed, who made a return to the playing field and was standout up forward kicking seven of his teams ten goals, acknowledged as much.

"It was a tough day at the office, we gave Nelson Bay a chance to run over us and they did that. They are a top side and they could very well see September action”

Apart from Reed, Tim Oosterhoff toiled hard in the ruck whilst Darwin recruit Beau Cubillo attacked the ball hard and will continue to be an asset for Killarney Vale.

In the Black Diamond Plate competition, Gosford made it two wins on the trot with a 63 point win over Lake Macquarie with veteran Tim Eather kicking eight goals whilst Wyong Lakes were too good for The Entrance Bateau Bay.

In the GE Women’s competition, heavyweights Newcastle City and Nelson Bay remain the only unbeaten teams however there are plenty of challengers.

Nelson Bay were made to work hard to overcome a very improved Killarney Vale eventually winning by 17 points after leading by just 3 points at three quarter time. Wyong Lakes and Cardiff played a cliff hanger with nothing between the two sides all day before the magpies hung on to win by five points and Gosford, was too strong for Lake Macquarie.
