TOORA has handed MDU another heavy defeat
to the tune of 76 points at Toora.
The Demons put up a spirited contest in the
opening term and trailed by just 12 points at quar-
ter time, before the Magpies got going and kicked
six goals to three in the second quarter.
Despite Toora winning the vital contests and hit-
ting the scoreboard regularly, the Demons battled
away in their best performance of the season so
far. They managed to register their highest score
with nine goals, and stopped the margin from
blowing out beyond 100 points.
Luke Manders was a force up forward for the
Magpies with eight goals and was ably assisted by
Jack Weston with four majors, while Josh Griffin
and Ben Wells were on fire through the midfield.
Jason Kennedy continued his rich vein of form
for MDU, and Matthew Laskey, Matthew Smith
and coach Tom Corry were in the thick of the ac-
tion. Kennedy and Corry finished with three goals
The Demons host DWWWW this week, while
Toora faces Foster in a local derby at Foster.
A DEPLETED DWWWW has held off a fast-fin-
ishing Foster to cling to a two-point win at Foster.
With the aid of a slight breeze the Allies set up a
19-point advantage at the first break despite hav-
ing eight players out through injury.
The Tigers lifted a gear in the second term and
reduced the margin to 10 points to stay in touch.
The Allies needed a spark and Max Homer de-
livered when he was moved into the middle.
He provided run and carry that saw the Allies
boot five goals to two and take a 29-point lead
into the final break, with Anthony Sigeti show-
ing strong hands across half forward and Kael
Bergles kicking seven goals to three-quarter time
despite missing some opportunities.
The Tigers weren’t done yet though, with Joel
Hanlon and Brad Rooney singlehandedly bring-
ing them back into the game in the final quarter.
Hanlon was unstoppable at half forward
throughout the day and took many important
marks, while Rooney won countless possessions
through the midfield.
With James Cook on top in the ruck, the Tigers
were full of run and the Allies were holding on
for dear life.
If not for the home side’s missed chances, it
would have been a different result.
Foster had all the momentum and the Allies
flooded numbers back in the final stages to stop
With five unanswered goals the Tigers drew
close, but the Allies escaped in the end with a

FISH Creek has continued
its unstoppable start to the
season with another dominant
display against Tarwin, win-

With the wind blowing early

the crowd was once again an-

Neither side was at full
strength, but both were con-

came from Fishy youngster

and kick from about 40m out
at the two-minute mark.

The Sharks were getting
good contributions from Der-

were struggling to match the

At half time the Kangaroos

If Tarwin was to get back
into the game it had to be in
the third quarter, but unfor-

the most dominant display by
Fishy for the day.
The Kangaroos booted 10

A further 12 senior clubs, in-

Barry Switzer said part of the
program was about assisting
clubs to engage in practical
methods of tackling the issue.
“One desired outcome from
this program is the develop-
ment and adoption of a club

which is clearly understood by
all members,” Switzer said.

THE Wonthaggi Table Tennis B Grade grand fi-

The match was extremely close with Rocket
League (Jake Stivic, Leit Rivers) scraping over the
line on the last game with a 3-2 result.
Their opposition was TMNT, Bayley Poynton-
Jessup, Levi Clarke - two very determined players
who never had any intention of making it easy for
Jake and Leit. It was a thrilling match with very
noisy spectators cheering every winning point.
The second round of B Grade matches will com-
mence in early July with practice and coaching for
junior players until then.
New players (7-15) are very welcome on Thurs-
days from 6 to 7pm at the Wonthaggi Table Tennis
Centre. With a shortage of girls in table tennis state
wide Wonthaggi Table Tennis would really have the
welcome mat out for junior girls.
