In the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup, Terrigal Avoca defeated Killarney Vale at Adelaide St Oval on Friday Night, in a match brought forward to allow the Bombers faithful to head to Sydney on Saturday evening to witness their very own Daniel Lloyd make his successful debut for the GWS Giants.
In front of a solid crowd the Panthers won the match 12.12.84 to 8.4.52.

The second term saw Terrigal Avoca flex their muscles kicking five goals to one, including three to coach Mark Skuse and at the long break the margin was 13 points. A highlight of the term was a brilliant snapped goal from the boundary by the Bombers’ Beau Cubillo.

The two teams went goal for goal in the third quarter and at the final change the margin was 24 points.

The Bombers made a number of changes in the final quarter but each time they were able to get a goal, Terrigal Avoca were able to respond and in the end the Panthers proved too strong winning by 32 points.

Former Coach, Chris Bishop was outstanding for the winners with the damp conditions suiting his style of play. Corey Billins racked up plenty of touches in the midfield whilst Corbin Bond and Pete Van Dam also had good games. Skuse finished the game with four goals.

For the Bombers, Tim Oosterhoff was very effective the ruck winning most tap outs, Alex Bailey was an influential midfielder whilst Beau Cubillo finished with four goals in an impressive display.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Singleton remain the only undefeated team after, Maitland inflicted Wyong Lakes first loss of the season with a 19 point win in an enthralling encounter. At Adcock Park, Gosford hung on to defeat Terrigal Avoca by ten points in an competitive contest and Lake Macquarie recorded their first win on the year over the Entrance Bateau Bay

BDAFL Round 5 Results

BDAFL Round 5 Report and Results below:

In Round 5 of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup, Newcastle City had a thrilling two point win over Nelson Bay, Terrigal Avoca had to come from behind to defeat Warners Bay and Cardiff were too strong for Killarney Vale.
At Newcastle No 1 Sportsground, Newcastle City and Nelson Bay played out a thriller with the reigning premiers prevailing 11.10.76 to 10.14.74.

At Feighan Oval, Terrigal Avoca overcome a spirited first half from Warners Bay to run out winners by 39 points; 10.11.71 to 5.2.32.

Having beaten the Panthers the last two times these two teams have played, Warners Bay, searching for their first win of the year, looked on track to continue this trend when they led by three goals at half time having kept Terrigal Avoca scoreless in the second term which is an accomplishment in itself.

The competition leaders however were not to be denied and slowly took control of the game and by only allowing the Bulldogs to kick one point after half time were able to eventually run away from the youthful Warners bay side to win by 39 points, and remain undefeated at the top of the ladder.

Jayson Van Dam kicked two goals for Terrigal Avoca, who had nine separate goalkickers. Ben Kernahan managed three first-half goals for Warners Bay.

The Panthers were best served by Kurt Fleming, Chris Bishop, Mark Skuse and Jayson Van Dam. The Bulldogs best players were the consistent Lachlan Deverell, Kernahan, Ben Hunter and Adam Van Est.

Panthers Coach Mark Skuse paid tribute to Warners Bay in the first half, saying no-one had tackled like that against them all season and that the Bulldogs fully deserved their lead at the main break after such a good start. He said that his team created outside run and free up space in the second half, getting back to “what we know works for us”.

Skuse said that his players stuck to their allotted tasks in the second half and that he was very pleased to keep the Bulldogs goal-less in the second stanza. He also indicated that the Panthers cannot afford another sluggish start for the remainder of the season, as other sides will put at least ten goals on them.

Cardiff rebounded from their Round 4 loss to Terrigal Avoca easily accounting for Killarney Vale at Hillsborough Oval 21.18.144 to 6.11.47.

The Hawks set up the win with a six goals second term to lead by 43 points at half time before running out 97 point winners.

In a well-beaten Bombers side, their best players were Ryan Barrett, Tim Oosterhoff, Beau Cubillo and Ben Simpson.

In the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Plate, Wyong Lakes remain on top after a hard fought win over Terrigal Avoca whilst The Entrance bateau Bay were no match for the unbeaten Singleton.

In the GE Women’s competition, Killarney vale and Gosford had wins to remain in the top six whilst Wyong lakes fell to Warners Bay.

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.

Round 3 action in the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup saw Terrigal Avoca maintain top position on the ladder with a 89 point win over Nelson Bay whilst Killarney Vale suffered 47 point loss to Newcastle City.

An undermanned Nelson Bay Marlins were no match for a disciplined and miserly Terrigal Avoca Panthers outfit at Hylton Moore Oval in the Black Diamond Cup on Saturday.

At Hylton Moore Oval, Terrigal Avoca’s defence were at their miserly best restricting Nelson Bay  to just one goal in the first three quarters as the Panthers completely controlled proceedings. Two late goals to Nelson Bay meant that Terrigal Avoca ran out 89-point winners, 16.16.112 to Nelson Bay 3.5.23.

Doug Clark and Coach Mark Skuse lead the goalkicking with three goals apiece. Brandon Thomas and Sam Ellis chipped in with two goals each as the Panthers had ten individual goalkickers on the day.

The Panthers were best served by Jack Grimmond, Skuse, Kurt Fleming, Ellis, Will McKellar and Brandon Sarich.

A whirlwind first quarter and excellent goalkicking accuracy from Newcastle City has laid the platform for the Blues’ first victory of the campaign. Eight goals to one in the opening stanza enabled City to run out 47-point winners at Adelaide St Oval, with final scores being Newcastle City 17.4.106 to Killarney Vale 8.11.59.

Killarney Vale, missing Josh Mifsud, Rick White and Scott Reed, fought very hard after quarter-time, and were best served by ruckman Tim Oosterhoff, Calvin Bond, Beau Cubillo, Harley Beckett and  Kyall Walford whilst Sydney Swans Academy member Harley Bernleitner was superb for Killarney Vale, kicking five of the Bombers eight goals.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Wyong Lakes moved to the top of the ladder with an 85 point win over Lake Macquarie at Tulkaba Park, Terrigal Avoca defeated Muswellbrook by 72 points at Hylton Moore Oval and Gosford were to strong for the Entrance Bateau Bay by 111 points at Passage Rd.
In the GE Women’s Competition, Killarney Vale remained undefeated with a big win over Newcastle, Wyong Lakes had to overcome a determined Lake Macquarie to record their second win of the year whilst Gosford suffered their first loss going down to reigning premiers Nelson Bay.

Round 2 action of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup saw an Alex Wells goal after the siren give Killarney Vale a one point win over Warners Bay, Terrigal Avoca defeated Newcastle City by 36 points in a rematch of the 2016 Grand Final and Cardiff held on against a fast-finishing Nelson Bay to win a crucial away game by 10 points.

Killarney Vale and Warners Bay were dead-level at 6.4.40 apiece heading into the last quarter at Adelaide St Oval in Tumbi Umbi. Warners Bay surged to an 11-point lead in the 25th minute of the final quarter after a Tristan Warner major and looked home. A mark and goal to youngster Harley Berleitner brought the margin to five points and with only seconds on the clock a “hail mary” kick into the goal square saw Bomber forward, Alex Wells take an excellent pack mark and with the siren already gone, went back and kicked the match winning goal.

Jack Nancarrow kicked three goals for Killarney Vale with their best being captain Josh Mifsud, Rick White, Kyall Walford, Wells, Max Mumford and Connor Reilly.

In the BARTV Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup Match of the Round saw Terrigal Avoca face regular Grand Final opponent Newcastle City at a firm and dry Hylton Moore Oval. The Panthers were too strong for the Blues, running out victors 12.7.79 to City’s 6.7.43.

Jay Lewis, Lachlan White and livewire forward Kurt Fleming kicked two goals apiece for the Panthers. Nick Gill played a lone hand up forward for City, managing two goals.

Terrigal Avoca’s decision to put up to three backmen on Gill paid handsome dividends, with City having no targets up forward other than the ex-Adelaide Crow. Jimmy Hart and Corey Billins often dropped off their man to nullify Gill, with Alastair Richardson picking up many marks and touches playing about twenty metres in front of Gill as a loose man in defence.

Panthers Coach Mark Skuse, himself a solid performer on the day, was a content man after the game. He praised Brandon Thomas, the entire defensive unit and the performance of Richardson in the unexpected role of loose man in defence.
Skuse is looking forward to the return of the Van Dam brothers and James Webster in coming weeks, saying the first two games before Easter has set the Panthers on course for a very good season. Skuse also praised the culture at Terrigal Avoca, stating that taking over from Chris Bishop as Coach has been seamless and that the players had bought into his coaching style and philosophy.

Terrigal Avoca’s best players were Hart, Richardson, Davis, Thomas, Lachlan White and Damen Smith.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Terrigal Avoca came from behind at three-quarter time to defeat Newcastle City; Singleton were too strong for Gosford and Wyong Lakes had a comfortable win over Muswellbrook at Tulkaba Oval.

In the GE Women’s competition, Warners Bay defeated Maitland by 14 points in a hard fought encounter at Max McMahon Oval, Killarney Vale overcome Lake Macquarie by 28 points, Nelosn Bay, Gosford and Wyong Lakes were too strong for Cardiff, Singleton and Wyong Lakes respectively whilst in the Friday night game Newcastle City had too many guns for Newcastle Nova’s.

In Reserve Grade, there were wins for Terrigal Avoca, Killarney Vale at home over Lake Macquarie, Cardiff, Gosford and Warners Bay.

There will a general bye in the Hunter Haval Black Diamond AFL competition for Easter next weekend with all competitions to resume on 22 April.
