YYN treated their match over Boolarra as a training drill giving the hapless opposition little scope to play attacking football. The Bombers were always going to be a standard ahead of Boolarra and showed the Demons how the game should be played. Conditions were almost perfect but YYN weren’t able to capitalise on their good play and wasted the opportunity to build up a big score. Most of the action was at one end of the field as YYN peppered the goals and 2-8 was little reward for the amount of effort for the first quarter. Coach Barrie Burnett would have been pulling his hair out in frustration (if he had any) at the inept result by quarter time. The YYN defence did their job to keep Boolarra scoreless. After a few choice words at the break the Bombers approach was different, Keenan Hughes and Dean McDonald stated to get into the action and they put through some impressive goals between them. A further eight goals by the Bombers to a lonely point by Boolarra saw the lead blowout to nearly ten goals by half time. After half time the carnage continued as Hughes and McDonald again put goals in from all angles and they finished with Hughes nine and McDonald seven. It was all one way traffic as the Bombers finished with 28-19 to Boolarra 1-1. For YYN there were 10 goalkickers overall. Best players were Dylan Bath, Keenan Hughes, Luke Webber and Tyler Brown while for Boolarra none tried harder than James Holmes, Matt Windsor, Gerard Farrell and Sam Mazou.Laurie Williams
Newborough had their second win over Thorpdale this season and was more impressive than the first, the Bulldogs showing good signs that something is starting to work, all they need is another four or five Joel Mitchells, the livewire forward who finished with seven goals in another impressive display. While he was active up forward the Bulldog defence were also strong restricting Thorpdale to only one goal to three-quarter time. Thorpdale backed themselves in the final term to outscore Newborough which saw then score 4-2 to 2-3, not a great difference but importantly to Thorpdale showed fighting spirit to the end. Newborough won the match 15-12 to 5-8. Newborough’s best were Liam Cordner, Josh Bland, Ryan Louch and Daniel Risol. For the Blues Daniel Hammond, Kyle Wilson, Deen Ellen and Trent Gibson all played well.Laurie Williams

Hill End haven’t won at Yinnar for over a decade and the troops were giving high fives after their epic win over the Magpies in a tough and gritty contest. Early signs in the match saw Hill End jump to an 18 point lead after Chase Saunders outdid his marker with three goals. Yinnar replied through an ex-Hillender in Matt Coutts who was given a bit of stick from the HillEnd supporters which may have put the big man off his game. Yinnar came back at Hill End but couldn’t put the score on the board except minors. The Magpies goaled again through Jordan Makepeace, so new to the Magpies he hasn’t got in the Spectator yet. The game was on and Hill End with a string of possessions scored two more goals to go to the break leading 5-3 to 2-4 in an entertaining match. Yinnar’s coach Kane Grinstead-Jones showed the way in the second with a goal within the minute to bring the game back to an 11 point difference. Clearances were hard to get in the middle with a mass of players around the centre it was a case of grab the ball and get tackled. Jeremy Rees was having his fair share of the ball with tap outs and he and Emerson Hicks had a great duel all day. Jack Hudson was doing well for Hill End as was the Fawcett brothers Dane and Aaron and Luke Fallia also picked up many possessions. Hill End scored another couple of goals but it was a tense battle with fierce tackles as players went in hard. Yinnar struggled up forward and managed only two further behinds. Undisciplined play by Yinnar gave Hill End two, fifty metre penalties which resulted in goals and by the half way mark Hill End were 31 points to the better (8-7 to 3-6).
Chase Saunders scored his fifth goal for Hill End just after the break and then the Hillmen fell flat, they started to miskick and at times went for the wrong option which let Yinnar back into the match. Brendan Chapman was good for Yinnar and Jack Finlay and the Coach were also into the fray. Yinnar’s Brad McBride goaled after an incident upfield which involved eight players but it was tough in the middle as both teams went in hard and it ended with two goals each for the term. Yinnar came out hard in the last term and pushed and shoved their opponents which at times worried the Hill End players who were looking over their shoulders. Yinnar staged a mini fightback with a couple of goals but Hill End rallied with Luke Mulqueen and Ambu Uliando playing hard ball were able to stop Yinnar from getting too close as Hill End ran out winners by 29 points. Hill End had many good players with the spritely Aaron Fawcett in everything, Dane Fawcett, Jack Hudson, Jacob Cassar and Jeremy Rees were also among the best in a good team effort. For Yinnar Brendan Chapman was exhausted picking up possessions, Danny Campbell, the Coach, and Jack Finlay were also good in a tough match.Laurie Williams
