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.
