It was contrasting emotions for the Central Coast teams in Round 17 of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition with Terrigal Avoca winning by three points with Killarney Vale losing by six points.

The Old Firm of Terrigal Avoca and Newcastle City produced a sensational game of football at No.1 Sportsground. The Panthers, who kicked eight goals in the first half but just one in the second half, just held on against a fast-finishing Newcastle City to run out three-point winners, 9.14.68 to City’s 9.11.65.

Alexander White’s 5th minute goal in the third quarter enabled the Panthers to go to 15-1 on the season, despite Newcastle City kicking the final three goals of the match. The Panthers reknowned defence held on for the final 14 minutes of the game, keeping the Blues goal-less in a backs to the wall performance fitting of the minor premiers.

Sam Ellis and James Webster kicked two goals each for Terrigal Avoca, who were best served by James Hart, Peter Van Dam, Ellis, Corbin Bond, Jack Fitzgerald and Jackson Farquhar.

Warners Bay kept their finals hopes alive with a thrilling six-point win over a gallant Killarney Vale at Adelaide St Oval. Final scores were Warners Bay 10.11.71 to Killarney Vale 10.5.65.

League leading goalkickers Scott Reed (Bombers) and Kayne Gibbs (Bulldogs) had a great duel at opposite ends of the ground, kicking five goals apiece in a low-scoring thriller in front of a healthy crowd at Tumbi Umbi.

Gibbs, benefitting from a downfield free-kick after an ill-timed push in the back, kicked the winning goal in the 25th minute of the last quarter of an exciting, pulsating Black Diamond Cup clash.

Kyall Walford played very well for the Bombers, well-supported by fullback Ryan Barrett, Brendan Lewis, Max Mumford, Harley Bernleitner and Shaun Sinclair.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Newcastle City clinched fourth position with a 50 point win over Terrigal Avoca, Gosford saw off a dogged Lake Macquarie by 20 points and Wyong Lakes came away from their trip to Muswellbrook with a solid 50-point win over the Cats.

In GE Women’s, Killarney Vale defeated Warners Bay to claim the last final position with wins also to Gosford, and Wyong Lakes. All teams will compete in the finals which commence next Saturday.
