With the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition having a general bye all eyes centred on Newcastle No 1 Sportsground for the annual GE Women’s Round. Six highly entertaining games were played with Gosford, Wyong Lakes and Killarney Vale all recording wins.

Gosford reinforced their credentials as the team most likely to challenge the top two teams, Newcastle City and Nelson Bay with a convincing 15.8.,98 to 0.4.4 win over Warners Bay who were missing a number of their key players.

With captain Alison Parkin returnning to the team the Tigers dominated the game for the outset.

Apart from Parkin, Emily Crookes, Maddison Kacarovski and Rachael Elcoate all had strong games with Parkin and Kocarovski the leading goakkickers with three each.

Wyong Lakes continued their push for a finals berth with a 23.15.153 to 1.1.7 win over Newcastle Nova’s.

After a very competitive first half, the Magpies were able to kick 15 unanswered goals in the second half to run out easy winners.

Alyce Hemming with seven goals and Grace Jarvis, six goals were unstoppable up forward, with Alexandra Pearce dominant through the kid field in a best on ground performance.

Killarney Vale returned to the winners list with a 11.13.79 to 1.1.7 win over Singleton.

The Bombers who ended a three game losing streak do not have things their own way against a much improved Singleton side, however in the end had a bit too much polish.

Georgia Butler, Skye Bailey and Orana Young were excellent for the winners with Ashleigh Page a dominant presence up forward finishing with five goals.

In the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup, Wyong Lakes confirmed their standing as one of the favourites for this years premiership with a 78 point win over reigning premiers, Singleton. Maitland remain in second position on the ladder with a 56 point win over Terrigal Avoca. It was thriller at Tulkaba Park, with Lake Macquarie holding off a fast finishing The Entrance Bateau Bay to win by six points whilst in the finals game, Gosford had to withstand a strong challenge from Muswellbrook before prevailing by 27 points.
