EVEN at this early stage in the season, it’s
probably unrealistic to think that Korumburra-
Bena might make the finals.
They’re sitting in second-last place on the lad-
der, ahead of Bunyip on percentage; both teams
yet to record a victory this season.
But, after last Saturday, they can at least tick
off one of the aims of their first year in the new
West Gippsland league, to be competitive.
Because they were better than that – they
should have won the damn game against last
year’s Ellinbank premiers, Cora Lynn.
They started with a 1.10 first quarter and re-
ally could have had the match shot to pieces at
that stage, such was their dominance around
the ground and their attack on the ball.
Cora Lynn got a good return from forward Lang-
ley and Gillis who booted a goal each into the wind.
In the second quarter the Giants’ Nathan
Cant kicked a miraculous goal to match Cora
Lynn’s two with the wind and the locals went in
at half time six points adrift.
They turned that around with a four goals to
two third term to lead by six points, well served
by Henderson in the ruck, plus onballers Snooks
and Fitzpatrick, as forwards Cooke, Walker and
McMillan struck gold up forward.
And even with the game in the balance in the
final minutes of the match, with Cora Lynn kick-
ing home with a howling gale in stormy condi-
tions, Korumburra-Bena might still have won.
You certainly couldn’t doubt the engagement
and resolve of the supporters, packed together in
the grandstand to the end. Their voices rose as
one in a great crescendo when Zach Walker beat
off two Cora Lynn opponents to force a stoppage
on the wing just as Cora Lynn looked likely to
surge forward and kick the match-winning goal.
They did eventually get that goal, by virtue of
a 50 metre penalty after nine points, but not be-
fore the Giants had raised several special efforts
of their own, against the wind, with a slippery pill,
only to score a solitary point for their trouble.
The team was bolstered by the return of
John Ayama and Daniel Abou-Karroum, both
of whom were missing against the Island and
they had plenty of other goers too including Ben
Fitzpatrick, Cam Trewin, Ash Snooks and oth-
ers but the team lacked the required compo-
sure up forward, whether kicking for goal or
into the forward 50.

PHILLIP Island has shrugged off a deter-
mined Garfield to claim back-to -back wins
at home and strengthen its position before
the week off.
It was the visitors who got away to the per-
fect start with the first two goals before in-
form Island forward Jack Taylor kicked his
side’s first at the 11-minute mark.
Kicking against a stiff breeze, the Island
defence was doing a great job thwarting Gar-
field’s attacks, but they broke through just
before quarter time to gain an 11-point lead
at the first break.
The Island came out swinging with the
wind in the second term and Steve Pimm
goaled in the first minute of play.
Pimm and Taylor went goal for goal during
the quarter to outscore Garfield four goals to
one and grab a seven-point lead at half time.
The third term was set up for a great quar-
ter of footy and neither team had full control,
but Garfield goaled first at the 10-minute
The Bulldogs hit back through the danger-
ous Taylor, which was followed by another
goal from Aaron Edwards, who was working
his way into the contest.
Garfield got themselves back into the
match with a goal of their own at the 20-min-
ute mark, but Island ruckman Nick Higgin-
son shinned a goal through from 30m for a
14-point lead going into the final break.
The weather started to turn in the fi-
nal quarter which saw the game become a

Island kicked 2.4 to 1.3 to run out 21-point
Taylor continued his devastating form

Jaymie Youle’s work in close helped get the

stir at Korumburra
Island on top at home
In the gathering gloom at Korumburra on Saturday, Giants’ midfielder Ben Fitzpatrick
makes a desperate attempt to get the ball going his team’s way as the time ticked away with
Korumburra-Bena only eight points behind, Ash Snooks in support. m841917
Korumburra-Bena onballer Daniel Abou-Karroum added some bite around the packs after
missing the previous round against Phillip Island. m851917
