GREAT weather during the week
has dried out the course consider-
Better conditions had more players out and
some good results with Peter Dight continuing
his good form. It was a surprise to have so few
turn up in great conditions for the ‘chook run’.
Congratulations to Robyn Galloway and
Owen (plays better without practice) Kindellan
for winning the monthly medals.
Grand quizmaster Peter was back. Obviously
feeling the pressure from master Megan he lifted
his performance to keep everyone smiling and
having a great night.
The winners needed five extra questions to
nail the win. Well done to ‘The Splitters’ who
performed well given the handicap.

IT was a glorious day in
Inverloch on Sunday and
the Stars and Breakers
took the opportunity to
play some great football
in near perfect condi-
It was Inverloch that started
strongest, linking up well down
the right hand side with Gerson
Panchero leading the charge
and setting up a chance for Eli
Barry Farrell was look-
ing sharp and was at the heart
of most of the Stars’ attacking
moves; he set San Oo sprinting
down the left wing and San’s
determined run and battling
challenge in turn set up Far-
rell, whose shot bounced off
the inside of the bar and was
hastily cleared by the Breakers’
This seemed to wake the Is-
land team and they began play-
ing some better football.
It was a dangerous cross in
from the right hand side that led
to a goal for Phillip Island.
The second half saw the
Stars bring on young striker
Oscar Price, who began making
some strong runs for the Stars.
The ever reliable Stuart
Hutchinson was picking up all
the loose ball in midfield, but
the Stars just did not seem to
be able to find that key pass
to score the equaliser they de-
Gene Parini pushed into
The Stars were rolling the
dice knowing they needed to get
a result and the relentless pres-
sure finally paid off with a bit of
magic from Barry Farrell.
He beat two players to fire a
shot into the corner of the goal,
leaving the keeper no chance.
The Stars pushed forward for
a winner which never materia-

could have grasped victory;

WHILE missing their
top two goal scorers
and a wing player,
the Leongatha Lady
Knights were cau-
tiously optimistic go-
ing into their match
In brilliant winter sun-
shine the Knights took some
time to settle into a rhythm
but once they did their de-
fence was unstoppable.
Led by the always depend-
able Reen, the Lady Knight’s
defence of Emily, Pauline,
Jess, Kaitlyn and Kim was
quick to shut down Korum-
burra’s repeated attempts on
struggled with composure but
thanks to Jordan, Bree, Jem
and Susannah some excellent
runs narrowly missed out on
making it between the posts.
No team appeared to gain
any advantage before half
A lucky play by Koru-
mburra resulted in a goal its
way somewhat dampening
the Leongatha Knights’ spirit.
However, Leongatha was re-
warded for its patience after
the wonderfully persistent
Jordan sent a winning cross
to a determined right wing

Though both teams
worked hard neither were
able to again break the score
resulting a well fought draw.
Korumburra and Leon-
gatha have a great rivalry and
it is no different with the U16
Many players are school
mates from both teams and
look to catch up for a chat be-
fore and after the game.
The game started well for
the Knights with an early goal
to Ali Lacanaria following
a long throw from Nicholas
Bongers (it is good to have
Nicholas back after six weeks
away on holiday).
Knights second goal came
from a Curtis Rintoule free
kick deep in the Knights de-
fence which was put over the
Burra defenders and allowed
Caleb Chatelier to run onto
and beat the keeper.
Knights’ attackers Sean
Villasevil, Caleb and Hay-
leigh Bashaw were able to
control the ball for much of
the day and looked to attack
every chance they could.
Ali’s second goal came
from an assist via Caleb who
crossed the ball from the right
wing and after Burra failed to
clear the ball Caleb was able
to put the ball in the back of
Ali was able to push for-
ward as a result of the good
support from Sam Bainbridge
and Will Barker.
Caleb was able to score
the last two goals of the first
half both as a result of throw
First Will took a long
throw which Ali controlled
down to the goal line and then
crossed for Caleb to have an
easy tap in.
The final goal saw Ali
head on a ball from a Nicho-
las throw and Caleb score
long range from the edge of
Hat trick to Caleb and
Knights 5-0 at half time.
Whilst the first half
seemed to be the Caleb and
Ali show it was the result
of lots of hard work by their
teammates behind them that
allowed these two to score
The second half saw Ko-
rumburra change its position-
ing and start to get some ball
of its own in attack.
It was one of these occa-
sions when Harry was able to
get a clear shot on goal from
well outside the box that sailed
over keeper Phil Smith’s out-
stretched gloves for a great
goal. This seemed to spur the
Knights on and when Ali and
Caleb combined on the right
the Burra team scramble to
defend them leaving Will
Barker free on the other wing
to take possession and score.
The Knights defence of
Nicholas, Curtis Rintoule
Adam Watchorn and Jordan
Rintoule was able to cut off
most Burra attacks and when
asked was able to start the ball
moving back up the pitch with
When Tom Roberts,
Malik Phillips and Vincent
Trease came on as substitutes
they were able to carry on the
good work of the rest of the
We are lucky to be able to
call on solid players as these
and it is fairly hard to back up
for a second game.
Sam was playing well
in midfield and when Caleb
passed him the ball it allowed
Sam to run at the defence.

bre of Caleb and Ali around,

Ali take the ball deep into the
Korumburra City defence and
seemingly with nowhere to
go was able to lob the keeper
with the narrowest of angles
and score his hat trick to take
the game 8-1.
The club has a bye next
Great game today against
Korumburra at home, with
the Knights winning 4-0
in great conditions. Goals
for the Knights came from
Toby, Hamish and Hayden (2
goals) Special mention also
to Eddie for various assists
throughout the game. There
were other good players in-
cluding Gerad and Ben. All
players performed well and
showed great sportsmanship.
Well done team and good job
Leongatha Knights U7
players enjoyed their day out
against Korumburra City with
eight players turning up: Lo-
gan, Sam, Shayan, Taj, Noah,
Neka, Mitchell and Tallarah.
It is enjoyable watching
these young players improv-
ing their skills each week and
it is a credit to young Jack
Bainbridge as he looks after
them at training and keeps
them busy game days.
The season is running out
of match days with only three
weeks of play left.
There is no game this
week as Leongatha Knights
have the bye.
Top play: Sam Bainbridge was able to beat City keeper with a Messi

MORWELL Cougars came to Le-
ongatha for the first time to take on
the South Gippsland Miners at its
new home ground.
The Miners Under 13’s looking for its
12th straight win struggled in the first two
innings to get on the board as the Miner’s
new player Andrei Popa-Smith stepped in
to pitch for the Cougars, who were a few
players short on the day.
Cam Prosser from the Miners also
put his hand up to play for the Morwell
side proving that true sportsmanship lives
strong in baseball.
Popa-Smith allowed two runs in his
first outing. The Miners scored with Os-
car Davis and Callum Buckland who stole
home on a passed ball, to take the early
The Cougars put pressure on Miner’s
pitcher Ethan Davis in the second inning
loading the bases with just one out, but
Ethan got to work and struck out the next
two batters to end the only threat by the
Cougars all day.
In the last inning the Miners had five
runs scored from six batters as Tom Nicho-
las, Bailey Harvey and Callum Buckland
all had doubles to put the Miners up 7-0 .
Buckland came on to close the game
and put the result in no doubt, as the Min-
ers put another game in the win column,
7-0. Another fantastic effort from an un-
stoppable team of great sports, reaching for
the team’s first go at finals with only three
games left to play, the South Gippsland
Miners U13’s are definitely the best bet to
take it all out this year!
