TOORA has moved to outright second on the
ladder after a strong final quarter saw the Mag-
pies defeat the Allies by three points at Alberton
The game began at a rapid pace with the Allies
first to score through Anthony Sigeti, before Kael
Bergles kicked two miraculous soccer goals to
give the home side a handy lead.
The ruck duels went the Allies’ way, however
late in the term Toora fought back with clever
goals to Luke Manders and then Josh Griffin,
who gathered a spilt mark to snap a goal to re-
duce the margin to five points at quarter time.
The second term was also even with Toora us-
ing the wide flanks to advantage.
The calm conditions turned very windy and
meant the ball had to be centred for best effect.
A Peter Grant goal put the Toora side in front
momentarily, but with Darcy Atkins and Tait Sa-
bec working hard to give the forwards chances,
Bergles chipped in with two more timely goals.
By halftime the visitors led by just two points,
but the weather was quickly deteriorating and
rain clouds loomed over the Hedley Ranges.
The third term saw the best football of the day
as the Allies ran and tackled hard to clear the
ball from the midfield via Trent Robertson.
Haydn Egerton and Jackson Nolan were
amongst the action and the reliable Bergles
kicked two majors put the home side back in
Not to be denied, Toora went forward with a
few minutes left in the term, and goals to Luke
Manders and Jack Weston saw them pull back
the lead to nine points at three-quarter time.
Heavy rain fell during the break and condi-
tions became very greasy.
Toora came home strong in the final term and
a 50m penalty at the 20-minute mark saw Toora
take the ball from halfback to within range.
The ball came to ground at centre half forward
and a snap by Josh Griffin sailed through to put
the Magpies in front by three points and they
held on until the final siren.
Weston, Michael O’Sullivan and Ben Wilder
were the Magpies’ best, while Manders kicked
Egerton racked up disposals throughout the
day for the Allies, Bergles finished with six ma-
jors and Cam McKenzie found plenty of the footy.
The Allies will be looking to bounce back when
they host Tarwin this week, while Toora hosts
FISH Creek led from start to finish to re-
cord a 13-point victory over Stony Creek in
trying conditions at the racecourse.
The Kangaroos took home the Jack Charl-
ton Cup, in the first of three clashes for the
annual cup this season.
The conditions were ordinary to say the
least, with a horrific wind blowing straight
across the ground and consistent rain.
It wreaked havoc with the footy and like
those before it, the senior game turned out
to be a real slog.
Fishy had a couple of good ins with captain
Callan Park returning along with defender
The game got underway with Fish Creek
doing most of the attacking to the highway
end with a favouring wind advantage.
A three-goal to zero quarter had the Kan-
garoos on top at the first change with young-
sters Ryan McGannon, Jake Buckland and
Gareth and Ethan Park off to a good start.
For the Lions, Jack Stuart, Andrew Logan
and Jacob Byrnes were lively.
The second quarter was a more even af-
fair and the Lions were looking dangerous
with the wind advantage in attack, which saw
the margin reduced to 10 points at the long
The third quarter saw the heaviest of the
rain during the day and this slowed the pace
of the game right down, and the match was
not a great spectacle in some very tough con-
ditions for the players.
The desire and effort was fantastic and this
had tempers flaring up right through the sec-
A few little spot fires broke out, and the
game was played tough and hard, but fair.
The margin at the last change was reduced
to eight points and with the wind dropping
out, the game was set for a frenetic finish.
Fishy did the majority of the attacking
through the early stages of the final quarter
and got the start they were looking for when
Andrew Seccull stood tall to take a good
mark and kick a great goal from a difficult
spot in testing conditions.
The Lions answered when Kerem Baskaya
kicked his only major for the day to reduce
the margin to single digits again.
Seccull stood tall again when he nailed
another difficult shot to give the Kangaroos
breathing space, and Callan Park snapped a
great left foot goal from deep in the pocket to
seal a 19-point win for the Kangaroos.
Fish Creek are at home to MDU next week
while Stony Creek have another tough match,
travelling to Toora to take on the Magpies.

TARWIN has easily disposed of Foster in a
one-sided clash at Tarwin on Sunday.
It was a tightly contested match on the
scoreboard at quarter time with the Sharks
leading by just four points, but the home
side powered away after the first break.
A seven-goal to zero second term set
the tone for the win, as the Sharks held a
49-point buffer at the long break.
Kicking against the wind in the third term,
the Sharks were held to a goal while the Ti-
gers managed to strike twice.
But the Sharks finished off strongly with
eight unanswered goals in the final term to
run out convincing 88-point winners.
The Sharks had a number of multiple
goalkickers with Travis Cameron, Andrew
Murray, Dermott Yawney and Troy Toussaint
booting three majors each, while Jordan Pas-
tura was a major ballwinner for the Sharks
and Nathan McRae was amongst the action.
For the Tigers, James Cook and Matt How-
ell continued their good form, while Mitchell
Jones and Luke Mann were also prominent.
Foster has the bye this week, while the
Sharks will travel to Alberton West for what’s
expected to be a tough encounter against the
