Dogs have their day - 2017 grand final day review

Sale City secured an historic senior football and A grade netball double in a highly entertaining 2017 AGL Loy Yang North Gippsland Football Netball League grand final day.

The Bulldogs won all four of the grand finals they contested at Traralgon Recreation Reserve, including the main games of football and netball.

Despite being the reigning premiers, City went into the game as slight underdogs, but played as anything but – dominating the contest from midway through the opening quarter to the final siren.

Coach David Piasente went into the game under an injury cloud but his three first half goals helped put his side in a commanding position at half-time, ensuring his injury-enforced absence after half-time had little bearing on the final result.

Classy wingman Tom Wilson was electric throughout and was duly rewarded for his two-goal performance with both best-on-ground medals, as adjudged by the umpires and the NGFNL board.

Bulldogs co-captain and renowned big game player Jacob Schuback produced another outstanding display on the big stage, while half-forward Justin McLay, half-back Mitch Evans, co-captain Ben Chivers and ruckman Chris Kelf were others to impress.

For Yarram, it was a bitter end to a terrific campaign.

Carson Strobel’s early goal was the only major the Demons managed for the first half and while they shaded the third quarter and kicked the opening goal of the final term, they never really looked like challenging for the flag.

Sel Burley medallist Griffin Underwood toiled hard and booted two of Yarram’s five goals for the day, while David Coulthard, Chris Bruns, Jake Anderson, Tyler Chisholm and Jack Moore were the Demons’ other better performers.

While the senior game failed to live up to expectations, the A grade netball delivered enough drama for both.

Sale City trailed at every change against reigning premier Woodside, but stuck to its task to tie scores at the death and force extra time.

The Wildcats once again took the ascendancy in extra time, leading at the change of ends, only for City to claw their way back and steal a stunning victory, 41-40.

Woodside defender Holly Jonston was named best-on-court.

AGL LOY YANG - NGFNL Under 18 Interleague Carnival 2016


AGL LOY YANG - NGFNL Under 18 Interleague Carnival 2016

Wednesday saw the annual Evans Petroleum Interleague Carnival held at Traralgon West in what

can only be described as wintery. I had the priviledge of being the Team Manager again this year

and with both games back to back against Gippsland League and Alberton League respectively it

was a slog in wet and muddy conditions. Our boys started the game against Gippy League

extremely well and bolted out to a three goal lead at half time, the silence from the Gippy League

bench was deafening in the first half as they were wondering who this group of players were!

Matthew Bond playing at Full Forward kicked a couple and we were looking the goods, Gippy

League regrouped in the second half and shut down our ball movement not allowing us to get clean

ball into the forward line. They started to score and in the end we went down by a respectable eight

points. In what was very much a team effort there were a couple of standouts with Jake Frith from

Glengarry and Tristan Turpin from Churchill showing the way. Bayley Escreet from Heyfield

showed why he was selected as Captain for the day getting in and under off the Half Back line and

with excellent service from our Ruckmen it was a fierce and well played game.

We then took on Alberton straight after in what was a frenetic first half of wet weather footy

meaning the scoring was low and pack work was the order of the day, the North Gippy boys were

great again as a team unit and held the fresh Alberton boys at bay with the scores level at half time.

Unfortunately we ran out of legs in the second half and Alberton started to get some momentum

forward kicking five goals to our one and taking the match.

Thanks go out to all the players, clubs and volunteers that assisted myself to get the boys to this

carnival and a special shout out to Andrew Miller, Brad Evans, Pauline Bayley, Gordon Bayley and

David Kyle for their assistance and I look forward to getting the boys ready for next year. Jake Frith

won the best on ground medal for the NGFNL, great effort mate and well deserved.

The 17&Under North Gippsland ‘A’ team emerged as premiers today defeating their opponents in 7 of the 8 games played throughout the day.  It was exciting to have both North Gippsland 17&Under Representative teams play off in the Grand Final.  The ‘A’ team were strong defensively all over the court all day, causing many opposition errors in every game. Capitalising on their turnovers and giving our goalers plenty of opportunities to score, this was very encouraging to see leading up to our main tournament day in two weeks the NV Association Championships.  A great team effort.  Coach Shirley Fromberg

The girls had a good day out coming out with 3 wins and 3 losses which left us 3rd on the ladder. They fought hard in all games but the real battle came in the semi final against Casey Cyclones where we went into double overtime. The girls fought hard and pushed themselves to their limits and thankfully they came out with the win! We then got to battle it out in the grand final with North Gippy Red who unfortunately got the better of us but the girls didn’t go down without a fight. The girls played very well through out the day and should be very proud of themselves! Congratulations again to both teams and best of luck for 2 weeks time!  Coach Sarah Mayman
