FISH Creek has dished out a 108-point
thumping to local rival Foster in front of a big
crowd on Easter Saturday at Terrill Park.
Both sides were missing a couple of players,
but nevertheless the scene was set for what was
anticipated to be a good game.
The Kangaroos have been fast starters in
2017 so far and it was no different on Satur-
day, winning the opening clearance through
Matt Taylor, and the opening goal was on the
board inside the first minute and a half to An-
drew Seccull, who was on the end of a bullet-
like pass from Lachie Park.
Fishy had six goals to separate goal scorers
on the board in the opening term and it took
until 24-minute mark for Foster to open its ac-
count when Luke Mann capitalised on a turn-
over to reduce the margin to 31 points at quar-
Fishy youngster Matt McGannon back from
Gippsland Power duties for the week was fan-
tastic, along with Gareth Park, Sam McGannon
and Blaine Coates.
For Foster, Matt Brown was working very
hard in defence and cut off a number of at-
tacks, and was well supported by Brad Rooney
and Josh Toner.
The second quarter was a more even contest,
with the Tigers looking to slow Fishy’s scoring
by flooding the forward area.
The Tigers scored the opening goal of the
term through Shaun Chaseling early in the
quarter and Fishy answered five minutes later
through big man Taylor, who was having a great
battle with Tiger recruit James Cook.
Fishy scored two late goals through Justin
Smith and Coates to take a 48-point advantage
into half time.
The third quarter has not been a good one
for Fishy so far this season and they were very
keen to make amends in round three.
Five minutes in and it was the Tigers who had
the opening goal after Hanlon received a 50m
penalty and kicked truly from close range to
reduce the margin and get the supporters up
That would be their only goal of the quarter
as the Kangaroos backline led by Jack Hayes,
Brent Cooper, Ryan McGannon and Liam Eade
were on top and making things very hard for
the Tiger forwards.
Two goals to skipper Cal Park and another to
Matt McGannon had the Kangaroos well on top
at the final change, up by 65 points.
The only negative for the home side was a leg
injury to Cal Park, which saw him done for the
day and possibly on the sidelines for a few weeks.
The final quarter was all Fishy as they piled
on seven goals to zero to close out the game in
very strong fashion.
The Tigers battled hard but the rampaging
Kangaroos were very keen to finish strong in
front of the big crowd.
Smith nailed three goals in the final quarter
and gave two more away to his fellow forward
Andrew Seccull, while Tom Cameron hit the
post twice and didn’t have it all his own way,
shadowed by Nathan Clarke.
Fish Creek will be at home again this week
when it hosts DWWWW, while Foster takes on
TARWIN has romped to an 85-point win over
MDU in the Easter Saturday clash at Tarwin.
The Demons stuck with the Sharks in the open-
ing term and trailed by 16 points at the first break,
before the home side broke away with seven goals to
two in the second quarter to set up a 48-point lead.
The match tightened up a little in the third term
with Tarwin kicking three goals to two, before the
Sharks booted four unanswered goals in the final
quarter to run out convincing winners.
Alex Whalebone was named Tarwin’s best for a
second consecutive week and is proving to be a
great pick-up, Troy Toussaint won plenty of the
footy and veteran Travis Cameron has been vital
in his return to the senior side and booted four
goals on Saturday.
For MDU, Cameron Harris was in the thick of
the action, coach Tom Corry was a major ball win-
ner, Matt Smith battled throughout the contest
and Jason Kennedy kicked two goals.
The Demons make the short trip down the road
to face local rival Stony Creek this week, with both
sides looking for its first win of the season, while
Tarwin has the bye.
THE match between Foster and Toora this
week has been moved to Toora, as the Foster
Showgrounds continues to recover from the
The Round 10 match between the two
sides will now be played at Foster, and Fos-
ter is expecting the ground will be available
after this week.

Fish Creek’s Ethan Park leads Foster’s Peter Coelli to the ball in the Kangaroos’ 108-point
drubbing at Terrill Park on Saturday.
Fishy smashes rival Foster
DWWWW has taken another
scalp, easily accounting for Stony
Creek by 65 points at Alberton
West on Easter Sunday.
The two clubs paid their respects
at an Anzac service prior to the se-
nior match, with Yarram RSL pres-
ident Rick Rogers speaking at the
service and Saul Stainer playing
the last post.
In ideal conditions for footy, the
Allies started in top gear, but it
took nearly 10 minutes before Kael
Bergles opened the goal tally.
From the centre, Darcy Atkins,
Jimmy Phillips and Trent Robert-
son set up scoring chances, but
Ryan McKnight and Andrew Logan
showed strong resistance with sol-
id marks on the last line of defence
for Stony Creek.
The Lions persisted in attacking
around the boundary, trying to lim-
it the Allies possession of the ball
in the centre corridor.
Later in the term opportunities
opened up and Bergles was the recip-
ient of accurate passes that saw him
boot three goals to give the Allies a
handy 24-point lead at quarter time.
The second term was fairly even
with Bergles kicking the first goal
before the visitors finally opened
their account with a snap from the
Moments later the Lions added
another, which would prove to be
their last goal of the match.
In defence Jayden Nolan ap-
peared to be well in control of
Stony Creek forward Kerem Bas-
kaya, whilst Steve Scott and Matija
Sigeti swooped on the loose ball
and quickly cleared it out.
By half time the game was still in
the balance with the Allies ahead
by 15 points.
Phillips, Atkins and Tait Sabec
cleared the ball out with ease to start
the third term and set up Bergles and
Anthony Sigeti for scoring chances.
Stony Creek were intent on spoil-
ing, but the Allies soon found Leyton
Sketcher on the vacant forward flank
and he goaled from the boundary.
Within minutes Bergles, Sigeti
and Haydn Egerton were in the
play, as the home scored four valu-
able goals to open up a 41-point
buffer at the final break.
The last term saw the Allies full
of running and fitness was now the
key factor as they peppered the
Logan at full back had a huge
task trying mind Bergles, Sigeti
and Ben Mayers, but inaccuracy
saw the home side register 3.7 for
the final term, while holding the Li-
ons to one behind and goalless for
the second half.
Bergles finished with nine ma-
jors in another clinical display for
the Allies, while Darcy Atkins was
presented with the Anzac Medal for
most courageous player on the day.
Jayden Nolan, Egerton and Max
Homer were prominent for the Allies,
while Jayden Gee, Will Collins and
Clint Mackie battled for the Lions.
The Allies travel to Fish Creek
this week for its biggest challenge
yet, while Stony Creek will host lo-
cal rival MDU.
