Eastern Districts on the March

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 - 9:25 AM

Eastern Districts ensured that their time in Division 3 would be short lived with a commanding 28-point win over Great Southern in the Division 3 decider on Sunday.

With three sides locked on three wins apiece following the qualifying matches it came down to percentage as both the Great Southern and Eastern Districts progressed into the decider ahead of the Regional Allstars.

After only five points separated the two sides in the qualifying fixture the crowd gathered early on Sunday at Claremont Oval were hopeful of another close encounter however Eastern Districts put that theory to bed on the back of kicking the first five majors of the match.

Two late Great Southern majors looked reduced the margin to 19 points at the first change.

The second term was an arm wrestle with both sides unable to build any momentum in the slippery conditions. A goal to Nukarni’s David Gare the only major for the quarter giving Eastern Districts a 27-point lead at the main break.

Any chance the Great Southern had of clawing their way back into the contest was extinguished in the third term as Eastern Districts not only restricted their opponents to three behinds for the term they also managed to kick two majors through Captain Alex James and sharp shooter Cody Nelson to take a commanding 40-point lead into the final term.

That was extended to 46 points early in the last when Aiden Anthony kicked his third and the promotion to Division 2 had been secured.

Three late majors added some respectability to the scoreboard though it was all Eastern Districts in a dominant display, running out 28-point winners.

Gare was everywhere in a best on ground display to be awarded the Landmark trophy. He received great support from Anthony, James Culleton and Josh Nelson. Anthony finished with three majors whilst Gare and Cody Nelson each chimed in with two.

For the Great Southern Ryan Kinnear, Michael Trevenen and Nick barrow all toiled hard in a losing cause whilst Kym Monteath finished with two majors.

Goldfields go up!

Monday, July 9, 2018 - 10:38 AM

In only their second year back in the Landmark Country Championships the Goldfields have gone one better than 2017 and claimed the Division 2 title with a hard fought 33-point victory over Mortlock.

After an impressive showing last year the Goldfields were determined to go secure promotion to the top flight and that’s exactly what the did, largely on the back of a final term blitz in which they piled on six goals to two.

The first three terms were an arm wrestle and at the final change only eight points separated the two sides thanks largely to Goldfields inaccuracy in front of the big sticks.

After a wayward 6.13 in the first three quarters Goldfields finally had the radar working in the final term as Alex McLeod and Bevan Bennell combined for five majors to take control of the contest and secure the Goldfields return to Division 1.

Goldfields ruckman Alex Stewart was brilliant for the duration of the contest and was fittingly presented with the Landmark trophy as best afield whilst McLeod finished with four majors to be the best forward on the park.

Mortlock duo Zareth Roe and Ben Whitsed toiled hard whilst Dylan Smith was their only multiple goal scorer with two majors. For Whitsed the loss was a disappointing end to a brilliant carnival that saw him presented with the Bud Byfield Trophy as the Fairest and Best player in Division 2.

Whitsed's great carnival saw him named in the Landamrk Allstars alngside James Batterham whilst Goldifelds duo Dylan Clarke and Jordan Delbridge's fantatsic carnivals saw them named in the Allstars as well.

GOLDFIELDS 12.14-86 def MORTLOCK 8.5-53

GOALS:

Goldfields: A McLeod 4, B Bennell 2, G Broughton 2, D Clarke, M Stevens, J Perry, A Devitt

Mortlock: D Smith 2, A Barry, C Sermon, L Indich, G Carter, M Walley, R Ward

BEST:

Goldfields: A Stewart, J Bootsma, A McLeod, J Swallow

Mortlock: Z Roe, B Whitsed, J Batterham, C Whyte, B Ward

CBH Group Colts Carnival - Preview

Tuesday, July 3, 2018 - 2:22 PM

You would be hard pressed to find a better Grand Final than the 2017 CBH Group Colts Carnival decider between the South West and Peel. A set shot after the siren was a fitting way to decide the competition and the 2018 version is building up to be much of the same.

South West have been powerhouses of the competition since its inception in 2000 claiming 14 of 18 titles along the way and will be looking to make it a hattrick of titles in 2018. The competition though has never been as close as it has been in the last four years with narrow victories in 2016 and 2017 following on the back of break through wins for the Northern Suns (2015) and Peel (2014).

Division 2 Landmark Country Championships - Preview

Tuesday, July 3, 2018 - 11:41 AM

A return to a traditional three division format at the Landmark Country Championships will see an extremely competitive Division 2 competition in 2018.

Last year Central Midlands Coastal claimed their first Division 2 title since a hattrick of titles between 2001 and 2003 when they defeated the returning Goldfields in the decider. Coach Lewis Harvey will have a vastly different side at his disposal however with the departure of State Country duo Rhys Waters and Simon Moore whilst Jayden Magro has also moved on. The trio were all named as Landmark Allstars last season and will take some replacing if the Green and Gold are to make it back to back titles.

WA State Country claims honours in the Goldfields

Monday, June 18, 2018 - 9:10 AM

The New Holland State Country side continued their preparations for their Interstate clash late in July with a hard fought 38 point win over a spirited Goldfields side.

Making the trip to Kalgoorlie to help celebrate the City of Kalgoorlie Boulders 125th year the State Country side jumped out of the blocks with a 4 goal to one first term. Jurien bay’s Mitch McPhee and Bruce Rock’s Cody Nelson both looked dangerous up forward will Kalgoorlie’s own Robbie Forrest, who now plays for Federals in the Avon Football Association kicked two first term majors.

WA began to get on top in the second term, extending the margin to 38 points at the main break thanks to a five-goal term.

It was all Goldfields in the third term as they ramped up the pressure on the WA midfield and began to find avenues to goal with Boulder City duo Scott Worthington and Alex Devitt finding plenty of the ball. A four goal to two term had Goldfields right back in the contest and trailing by 29 points at the final change.

This was reduced to under 20 points thanks to two long range goals in quick succession to Worthington. When he snapped truly not long later the home crowd could sense an upset. It wasn’t to be however with WA settling with a few late majors to run out 38-point winners, 16.16 to 11.8.

McPhee bagged three majors in a starring role up forward whilst Cody Nelson could quite easily have finished with a handful, managing 3.5 in front of the big sticks for the black and gold.

Goldfields Captain Worthington finished with four majors whilst club teammate Devitt was the home sides only other multiple goal kicker, finishing with two majors.

Forrest was awarded Best on ground honors for WA and was joined in the best by WA State Country regulars Eddie Dann and Jayden Brooks.

Mines Rovers Matt Braham received Goldfields best player award and he received solid support from Worthington, Devitt and club teammate Jordan Delbridge.

The match was a conclusion to a fantastic day in the Goldfields with a Women’s Exhibition game between the Goldfields and Esperance kicking off proceedings followed by the Kalgoorlie Masters strutting their stuff against the Kale-brities. All proceeds raised went to the Give Me Five for Kids.

A big thankyou to the various sponsors who made the day and trip possible, especially the City of Kalgoorlie Boulder.
