ROUND 4 MATCH REVIEWS – by Laurie Williams


Morwell East suffered a big blow coming up against Fish Creek, the long trip by the East had a sad
ending with the Hawks being outplayed by a fast skilful but inaccurate Fish Creek side, 35 shots for
14-21 to 13 (6-7) to the East. It was a bitter ending for the East who had shown good form going into
the game but Fish Creek completely outplayed the East to run out winners by over 10 goals. Fish
Creek setting up their win in a devastating second quarter for 5-5 to the East’s one behind. Morwell
East’s Coach Devon Soutar was ropable at the break and urged Morwell East’s to show some pride in
their ability. Their second half was more competitive but the damage had been done by the more
systematic Kangaroos. Jordan Shaw top the goals with five for the Creek with Darcy Berryman
booting four. Morwell East couldn’t do better than two goals by Dylan Day. Sam McGannon was best
for Fish Creek with able support from Jai Stefani, Jordan Shaw and Darcy Berryman. The East’s best
were given as Matt Cunningham who was a trier all day, Daniel Siddle, Rob Michaelides and Joel


Boolarra opened their account against Thorpdale in the battle for the spoon. It was expected that
Thorpdale would do a number on the Dees but Boolarra managed to hang on and win by 14 points.
After an even first term the Demons broke away in the second with Michael Cleaver back in action,
his play and four goals enabling Boolarra to set up a pathway for their first win. There was very little
between the two teams but Boolarra managed to keep ahead to eventually run out winners. Tom
Reiske continued to star for Boolarra with another BOG with Brendan Mason and Sam Mazou with a
couple of goals also amongst the best. Thorpdale had goers in Matt Powell, Deen Allen and Shannon


Mirboo North clawed their way back with a solid win over MDU to claim the inaugural Owen (Spud)
Harris Memorial Cup. It was an emotional day for both clubs with Mirboo North prevailing in a tough
gritty match. The Tigers went into the second half trailing by eight points but got their mojo working
in the third with a seven goal burst to break open the match. Luckily for Mirboo North that MDU
didn’t have much up front in the last but they did restrict the Tigers to only two behinds but still the
Tigers managed to come home with the trophy by 14 points. Liam Nash was again to the fore with
six goals to lead the charge. Ben Campbell, Ethan Woodall, Damien Turner and Mitch Wightman all
proved their worth in the gutsy win. For MDU Jack Stuart, Jason Kennedy and Erik O’Loughlin were
the best from the rest.


Hill End continued on their merry way after a long trip to Toora to win by a big margin. Led by a
strong defence the Hillmen in unfamiliar surroundings kept Toora to a useless score for most of the
match while scoring on 15 from 34 scoring shots. Nine goalkickers shared the honours with Nathan
Lee, Aaron Fawcett and Chase Saunders all bagging three each. Best were Aaron Fawcett, Ambu
Uliando, Jack Hudson and Tyler Pratt in good support. For the Magpies, Peter Grant, Ben Wilder and
Daniel O’Keefe were voted as best.


Foster kicked the sweep against Newborough with super forward Ben Humphrey bagging the best so
far this season with 11 goals (which was five more than Newborough’s tally). The Bulldogs had no
answer to the Tigers and were powerless to stop Humphrey up forward, Foster were powerful and
are making a statement that they are running hot. Ben Humphries got the BOG as expected with
Matt Clark, Todd Bastion and Will Flavelle all playing well while for Newborough Liam Flahavin, Jake
Bowden and Sean Burns all played well.


Yinnar came back to reality with a strong win over Stony Creek who finished runners-up in 2019 but
yet to win a match in this new season. The Magpies coming off a good but disappointing match
against Mirboo North the previous week were out to show fans what they are capable of. Stony
Creek are at their lowest after getting so close in 2019 Grand Final. Yinnar setting up their win in the
second term and never looked back. Ben Cheffers was again to the fore with Seb Famularo, Danny
Campbell and Mark Quigley all doing well while for the toothless Lions their pick were Lachlan
Thomas, Sam Marriott, John Phillips and Tom Stone.
