No team remains undefeated and no team remains without a win following Round 12 of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition which saw wins for Newcastle City, Cardiff and Warners Bay.

In the Match of the Week, reigning premiers Newcastle City served notice on the rest of the competition with a comprehensive 28 point win over Terrigal Avoca, 13.12.90 to 9.8.62.

The loss ended the Panthers ten game winning start to the season and was further compounded by a groin injury to inspirational leader Jayson Van Dam who left the field in the third quarter and did not return.

The game opened with both teams making uncharacteristic skill errors and despite Newcastle City having the early ascendancy it was Terrigal Avoca’s who kicked the first two goals courtesy of Austin Clark and Jack Grimmond. Both sides traded goals before quarter time which saw Terrigal Avoca lead by nine points.

With Newcastle City dominating the clearances and make shift ruckman, Abe Gibson doing a sterling job, the Blues were able to dominate possession and take control of the game in the second term. Their back line led by the experienced Ian Baker and Luke Rawnsley plus Ethan Durbridge and the talented Conor Haswell repelled numerous attacking forays for the Panthers whilst up the other end of the ground Pat Gillingham and Cade Triffit were creating options across half forward.

Four goals to two for the term saw Newcastle City lead by four points at the long break.

Newcastle City, led by Aaron Seen, Mitch Knight and Sam Payne increased their pressure around the contest which forced Terrigal Avoca to rush their possessions. The Blues kicked six goals in the third quarter to open up a lead of 29 points at the final change.

Needing to start well, the Panthers led by Kurt Fleming kicked the first two goals of the final term to reduce the margin to 17 points and give their supporters hopes of a comeback, however a turnover across half back resulted in an excellent running goal to Jackson Crawford to kill off the contest. The final margin was 28 points and a well deserved victory to Newcastle City.

The Blues were best served by Gillingham (three goals), Ian Baker and Cade Triffitt, whilst the performance of youngsters Crawford, Hugh Blanchfield, Aidan Watling, Reed Van Huisstede, Max Quinlan and Liam Dwyer would have pleased the Newcastle City faithful. Courtney Knight also was his normal dangerous self up forward finishing with four goals despite close attention from the Panthers defence.

For Terrigal Avoca, Fleming, Austin Clark and Jack Grimmond were their best.

At Feighan Oval, Warners Bay, after knocking on the door for their first win for a number of weeks finally broke through with a convincing 12.7.79 to 4.6.30 win over Killarney Vale.

Coach Marty Reiman, was ecstatic with his teams performance and led by Jake Roach and Rob Schindler-Taylor dominated from the outset kicking the first four goals of the game before winning by 49 points.

The Bombers who were missing their key midfielders through injury and unavailability were unable to create enough quality scoring opportunities to challenge the Bulldogs after their slow start.

Apart from Roach and Schindler-Taylor, Kayne Gibbs continued his good form up forward to kick four goals whilst Lachlan Deverell and Ben Hunter also had good games.

Lachlan Wilson, Mick Broadbent and Conor Reilly were their best whilst Ryan Barrett continued his consistent season.

Cardiff returned to the winners list and in doing so consolidated second position on the ladder with a 16.6.102 to 9.5.59 win over Nelson Bay.

Using the tight confines of Hillsborough Oval to their advantage, the Hawks controlled the game from the outset when they led by 13 points at the first change before extending their lead at each break before winning by 43 points.

In his 100th game, Nick Chapman was the Hawks best with good support coming from Matt Vukovich, Simon O’Brien and Chad Mayo with Josh Murphy and Trent Thompson their most effective forwards finishing with four and three goals respectively.

For a disappointing Marlins outfit, Jeremey Eddy, Adam Grinyer, in his first game of the season and Billy Barton were their best, whilst Luke Price kicked three goals.

In the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Plate, Newcastle City completed a good day for the club by defeating reigning Premiers, Singleton at Rose Point Park by 18 points to move back into the top four. Kevin McDonald made a welcome return for the club finishing with four goals. Wyong Lakes returned to the top of the ladder with a hard fought 25 point win over arch rivals Gosford highlight by six goals to captain Lee Moore. Lake Macquarie recorded their second win of the year after a dominant second half to defeat Muswellbrook at Tulkaba Park by 35 points with Tim Wells starring whilst Terrigal Avoca were too strong for a gallant The Entrance Bateau Bay outfit at Bateau Bay.

In the GE Women’s competition, Nelson Bay gained the upperhand in the race to secure the all important second position on the ladder with a 23 point win over Gosford in an enterprising match at Adcock Park. Maitland gave their finals chances a big boost with a 56 point win over fellow final aspirant Killarney Vale. After not winning a game in 2016, Singleton recorded their fourth win, third in row for 2017 with a 62 point win over Newcastle Nova’s. Warners Bay had to come from behind to defeat Lake Macquarie by 22 points at Tulkaba Park whilst Cardiff were too strong for Muswellbrook recording their second win of the year. In the final game ladder leaders Newcastle City were made to work hard by a depleted Wyong Lakes before winning by 63 points.
