Poor showing lands Tigers in corner

For the cause: Tristan Salerno was one of the few bright lights shining on a day that was dimmed by Yallourn Yallourn North showing the power it has.

Fish Creek – it’s time

Pursuit: Fish Creek’s Ashley Snooks accepts a hand ball from a team mate looking to clear the ball from the Kangaroos backline during the last meeting between these two teams on July 30. It was a battle between the top two sides and Fish Creek came out on top by 15 points to displace the Inverloch Kongwak Sea Eagles from top spot.

IT was 2002 when Fish Creek last won the Alberton Football Netball League Grand Final. President Jason Harding said he would be “delighted” to fly the flag at Fish Creek once again. The year has belonged to Fish Creek in many ways and a premiership would be a fitting end to the team that won […]

Wonthaggi misses finals

Lucky break: Power’s Pat Ryan came in for a mighty bump which knocked the ball free and into the path of his opponents.

WONTHAGGI’s hopes of having its Senior team contest finals failed on the weekend when results of other games didn’t go its way. Despite a last round win at home over Bairnsdale, the shock win by Warragul over Maffra guaranteed both Wonthaggi and Sale would fall just short of the top five. Wonthaggi needed a big […]
