INVERLOCH Kongwak’s consis-
tency out on the field secured its win
against Tarwin last week.
The Sea Eagles chipped away at the
scoreboard to rack up a 14 goal win over the
Though the ground was in excellent condi-
tion, the wind forced ugly play and the boys
had to fight to keep control.
Tarwin applied plenty of defensive pressure
to limit IK’s scoring opportunities, but a few of
the team’s own mistakes caused the Sharks to
IK continued to play its own game quarter
by quarter and averaged four or five goals each
Toby Mahoney kicked five goals for the
Sea Eagles and was named best player, along-
side fellow goal kicker Dylan Clark.
Onballers Corey Casey and Josh Clottu
provided plenty of drive down the field for IK,
while Aiden Cuff and Dale Lawton kept up the
defensive pressure to ensure Tarwin’s score
IK cracked triple digits and finished the
game off with 110 points to Tarwin’s 24.
Tarwin’s best players on the day were Ben-
jamin Ellen, Paul Hinkley, Nathan McRae,
Ricky O’Loughlin and Harrison Miller.
Next week, IK will have its ultimate grudge
match against Dalyston on its home turf. This
match will be the decider of where IK should
be sitting on the ladder and will reveal IK’s im-
provement over the season.
Tarwin will be tested as it takes on Foster,
which is sitting squarely on top of the ladder.
Invy stays strong
• Inverloch-Kongwak v Tarwin
• Toora v Stony Creek
TOORA stayed at home to take on Stony Creek
in windy weather on Saturday.
Both teams struggled to get off the mark in the first
term, each booting a major and finishing in Toora’s fa-
vour 10 to nine.
Luke Manders kicked the first major and continued to
add to the scoreboard, responsible for kicking two in the
second term and another in the third.
One of Toora’s toughest forwards Lucas Jenkins in-
jured his knee in the first quarter and did not return for
the remainder of the game.
The ball remained in contest for a majority of the sec-
ond half with constant contests responsible for what was
ultimately a low scoring match.
Stony Creek worked for the ball following the half-
time siren however Toora almost doubled its score, up to
46 in the third term against Stony on 35.
Toora’s Ben Osborne and Michael O’Sullivan played
a strong backline however Stony Creek came back fight-
ing in the home stretch.
Stony Creeks’s Kerem Baskaya put two majors on
the board but spread the rest of the scores throughout the
match with sole majors from Lachlan Park, Jacob Byrnes,
Troy Sinclair, William Collins and Daniel Rodgers. Both
teams put up a very tough defence throughout.
Stony’s back line did not give up and only allowed
Toora one major in the final quarter. The visiting side
managed to put three majors and three behinds up on
the last term and overtook Toora just in time for the final
siren, winning 56 to 52.
A gutted Toora will take on Fish Creek this weekend
with hopes to make amends for its close loss to Stony.
Jenkins has been given the go ahead to play in Sat-
urday’s match while Jack Weston will return to the mid-
field after a couple of weeks off injured.

Stony’s last gasp win
