Round 7 Review


Both the Dimboola the Kangaroos and the Kookaburras teams played against each other in an exciting close fought match. The flat surface at Dimboola allowed for a skillful high scoring game. Jamie Guerin backed up his form from last game and scored the Kookaburras 4 goals, helping them to another win. Votes for Kookaburras went to Jamie Guerin (3 votes), James Keating (2 votes), Ashlee Crowhurst and Jayrell Guzarem (1 vote each). Votes and goals for Kangaroos were earned by Brydon Tischler (3 votes), Michael Pohlner (2 votes, 2 goals), Caleb Halsall (1 vote), Melaie Webb (1 vote) and Lachlan Lehmann (1 goal).

The Kaniva Raiders had a very easy game in bad weather against the Horsham Bombers, scoring 14 unanswered goals. The Bombers were short a number of players, but were fortunate enough that the Radiers had too many, and could lend some players. The Raiders struck very early with some good passing by Lachie Mills and Brandon Rich. Adam Feder and Bobby Rabowe scored their first ever goals for the Raiders. Jo Ellis (3 votes) in goals and Adam Schwedes (2 votes) in full back played a good game for the Bombers, but couldn't hold back the Raiders onslaught.

The Yanac Warriors played another great game against the Warracknabeal Revengers. Yanac dominated the first half using the flat Dimboola ground to execute some great passing and attacking plays, netting them several goals. The second half saw the Revengers step up their defense with Nakita Langman and Darius Cosgrave playing strongly, but it wasn't enough to stop the Warriors who continued to score. Goals and votes for Warriors went to Bradley Alexander (3 votes, 4 goals), Nathan Alexander (2 votes), Sam Bone and Todd Alexander (both with 1 vote, 1 goal).


The Kaniva Women fought against the Highlanders, but it wasn't their day. Highlanders attacked early but were unable to score until Kaniva put in an own goal, giving Highlanders a goal. The Highlanders continued to attack and managed to score another 2 goals before the end of the half. In the second half, the highlanders added another 3 goals to their total. Kaniva were unable to put a goal in the net. Votes and goals for Highlanders – Ellie Morrow (3 votes, 3 goals), Robyn Creek (2 votes), Carmel McFarlane (1 vote, 1 goal), Clare Barnett (1 goal).

Kaniva Men went down to the Horsham Hurricanes in a close game. Hurricanes were a few players short again this week, but were happy to receive 2 of the Horsham women players and a Warracknabeal Hoops player to make up numbers. The flat even ground of Kaniva helped both teams to use skillful passing to make some attacking plays. Kaniva scored a goal early in the first half putting them in good stead for the rest of the game. The Hurricanes didn't give up and were able to come out on top with 3 goals to Kaniva's 1 goal. Hurricanes votes and goals went to Paul Mackereth (3 votes), Aaron Creek (2 votes), Jarrod Knoop (Hoops player, 1 vote, 1 goal), Robyn Creek (Highlanders player, 1 vote), Ash Clark (1 goal) and Ben Schwedes (1 goal). Kaniva Men's votes and goal went to Josh Bedford (3 votes), Clint Beattie (2 votes) and Christian Stimson (1 goal, 1 vote).

The Warracknabeal Hoops played an excellent game against the Yanac Tigers. Hoops came out hard and fast scoring two early goals, which put the Tigers on the back foot in the first half. The second half saw the Tigers show their true form, stopping Warracknabeal from scoring any other goals and scoring 2 themselves. The game went down to the wire with Warracknabeal almost able to score a final goal after the whistle in a short corner, but they ended up drawing with the Tigers.
