KILCUNDA-BASS has blown a 29-point lead at
three-quarter time, falling to a determined Koo
Wee Rup by 12 points at Koo Wee Rup.
After winning the toss, the Panthers were hop-
ing to capitalise while kicking with a strong
breeze, but it was the home side who snagged
the first major.
Foreshadowing what was to come for the en-
tirety of the contest, the first quarter was a
scramble with both sides struggling to break
free. Chris Endres was winning plenty of the ball
as always, however Koo Wee Rup’s pressure was
far too strong to break the game open.
Co-captain Danny Wells finally slotted the Pan-
thers’ first goal of the season on the run and not
long after, returning premiership hero and goal
kicking machine Luke James snapped one over
his shoulder to extend K-B’s lead to seven points.
Despite the strong wind, the Demons con-
tained its opposition for the rest of the quarter,
putting them in a comfortable position at quarter
time although down by seven points.
Early in the second Koo Wee Rup looked to
have utilised the breeze as they had an easy shot
on goal, however the chance went begging.
The scrappy contest continued with the Sher-
rin stuck in the dead pocket, until Ben Kerrigan
was able to capitalise for the Demons and lev-
elled the scores.
With the game in the balance, K-B’s young-
sters began to stand up with Brad Aldwell get-
ting his hands on it and also Jaidyn Burgess, as
he cleaned up a James smother and comfortably
split the middle.
Former Cora Lynn premiership star, Nathan
Muratore consistently launched attacks from
half back for the Demons, however Matt Ed-
wards was his same old self, impacting nearly
every contest he was involved in, proving to be a
vital figure for K-B down back.
A miskick from the Panthers was snaffled up
by Koo Wee Rup, which went back over the goal
umpire’s head for a goal, giving them a two-point
lead just before the main break.
Kicking with the wind once again, K-B looked
to take control of the contest as crafty forward
pocket Jason Wells kicked a classy goal.
Wells started to find his groove as he hit the
scoreboard shortly after, giving the visitors a
The tough contest continued with both sides
cracking in hard, however it was Endres and co-
coach Brent Macaffer who managed to get boot to
ball and send it forward.
James was able to kick a typically strong goal
after the ball went to ground, as the floodgates
looked to open.
The full forward once again goaled, after he
clunked a contested mark and kicked truly from
Jason Wells capped off a strong few minutes
by snagging his third for the quarter, giving K-B
all the momentum with a 29-point lead at three-
Despite managing just one scoring shot in the
third term, Koo Wee Rup came out in the fourth
playing with a fire that K-B struggled to match.
The Demons were doing all the attacking, cre-
ated by the midfield dominance of Dave Collins.
The home side booted six unanswered goals
and kept the Panthers goalless for the term, to
clinch a 12-point win.
Kilcunda-Bass will look to make amends for
its late blunders in two weeks’ time when they
come up against Dalyston on Easter Saturday at
Koo Wee Rup will also have the week off before
travelling to Phillip Island on Easter Saturday.

win of the season by 40 points at Korumburra
The Giants lived up to their off season promise
to be more competitive, but a powerful third quar-
ter by the Sea Eagles proved to be the difference.
In a fast paced contest, only four points sepa-
rated the two sides at half time, before the Sea
Eagles stepped up with five answered goals to
set up a 36-point buffer at the final break.
Clinton McCaughan provided a big target in
the forward half, particularly in the third term
and finished with three majors.
In front of a big crowd, the Giants didn’t
throw in the towel and matched the visitors in
the final term.
There was plenty to like about the new-look
Giants, with vice-president Andrew Newton
pleased with the side’s effort after a long and
“It was a fast and intense game and both
teams ran it out right from start to finish,” he
“We were really proud of the guys. It’s a new
group playing together and they played really
well, but when they kicked four or five goals in
a row it was hard to claw back because it was
such an even game.
“Both sides show very clean, quick hands
and from a club point of view, it was a good
spectacle with the night match and we had an
absolutely cracking night.
“The Inverloch-Kongwak guys stayed around
for a couple of hours after the game, the rooms
were full and we were very appreciative of the
New recruit Johnny Ayama was the Giants’
best with strong work in defence, alongside
Jimmy Kyle who led by example with his attack
on the footy.
Sam Edwards was also solid in defence in
his return to the club, Ben Fitzpatrick was at
his usual best through the midfield and the fast
game suited young winger Nick Wylie.
Another recruit, Daniel Abou-Karroum, was
lauded for his tackling pressure and showed
his presence up forward in the final term.
For the Sea Eagles, ball winners Andy Sou-
milas, Shem Hawking and Josh Purcell contin-
ued their strong start to the season, while gun
recruit Tom Hams was impressive in his first
