ALLIES and Kilcunda Bass met
at Alberton West last Saturday in a
game that would tell clearly where
the Allies are at.
With two wins from two games under
the belt the home team was confident of
The first term was even in terms of
general play however two early goals to
the visitors made the home work harder.
A goal to Hayden Egerton late in the
term saw the visitors lead by seven points
at the first change.
Two quick goals by Sibosado and En-
dres fired up the visitors but the Allies re-
plied with four goals in quick successions
as Marriott, Egerton and Buttegieg started
to control the forward line.
At the main break the Allies now led
by five points but the visitors had the use
of the stiff breeze.
From the initial bounce Killy Bass
turned in a solid display of running, team-
work and marking within range.
An eight goal term with goals to En-
dres, Wilson, Gibson and Bergles opened
up a handy lead.
The Allies defended stoutly but
dropped marks and inaccuracy robbed
them of bridging the gap.
Whilst the visitors used the corri-
dor as the shortest way home, the Allies
were forced wide. Ryan Marriott at centre
half back did a great job and with Steven
Richards, Jaden Nolan and Darcy Atkins
they worked hard for a score.
The last term was fairly even but the
third term would prove fatal.
FISH Creek attained
some slight redemp-
tion for last year’s
shattering grand final
loss knocking off the
reigning premier Da-
lyston by 48 points on
At quarter time one
could have been forgiven
for assuming the match was
heading the same way as
last year ’s main game.
The Magpies led the
Creek by 26 points at the
first change, and had com-
pletely owned the game.
Chris Graham was the
main reason behind Daly-
ston’s dominance, kicking
three goals in the opening
quarter as his teammates
made the most of unchar-
acteristic Fish Creek mis-
But all that changed at
quarter time as Kangaroos’
coach Greg Hoskin issued
the challenge to his charge.
His speech focused on
the challenge of the big
game, highlighting the im-
portance of playing a com-
plete game against the bet-
ter sides in the competition.
It started in the middle
for the visitors in the second
quarter, with midfielders
Paul Tolongs and Ashley
Snooks taking control.
The deficit was wiped
out quite quickly and then
Fish Creek charged ahead,
with only the final siren
providing any reprieve for
the hapless Magpies.
Quite a bit of aggression
was evident throughout
the game, with the visitors

Redemption: Dalyston’s Flynn Brosnan lays a fierce tackle but after all the formalities surrounding the
unfurling of the premiership flag, the Magpies went down to a recharged Fish Creek. It was 17 year old
Flynn and his twin Darcy’s first Senior game.
Fishy takes grand final rematch
but what was fortunate is
that it was kept to a mini-
Next week the Kan-
garoos take on a much
improved Allies at home,
while Daylston will be tak-
ing on Toora away.
All of the league’s fol-
lowers will be keen to see
if the reigning premiers
are able to bounce back, or
whether they might finally
be starting to slip off their
looking to stamp their au-
thority on the match, and
also on the league.
There were quite a few
scuffles that threatened to
become worse, but the um-
pires did a great job to stay
on top of proceedings.
The third quarter was
considerably more level
than the previous ones with
the hard in-and-under play-
ers for their respective sides
getting the most of the ball.
Fish Creek’s backline
stood tall throughout the fi-
nal three quarters, and pro-
vided plenty of run going
the other way.
The final quarter was the
best for the visitors, whilst it
was one to forget for Daly-
Justin Smith and An-
drew Seccull set the scene
for their side, kicking a few
goals and finishing with
four and three respectively.
The Creek finished the
game running on top of the
ground while its opponents
started to look tired.
Unfortunately the ag-
gression on the field spilled
over to some verbal aggres-
sion from some supporters,
A big moment: Dalyston FNC ground keepers Graeme and Julie Pigdon raised
the 2015 premiership flag.
For all to see: the premiership flag flies atop the
flag pole at Dalyston after the flag raising ceremo-
ny on Saturday.
