Fish Creek get revenge on Allies

FISH Creek was on the road for a third week in a row this week, this time they were headed for Alberton West to take on the Allies, which inflicted Fish Creek’s only loss to date in 2017 only one month ago on the same ground.
Fish Creek, still injury depleted and having lost captain Cal Park and Justin Smith on the morning of the game to the flu, promoted two of its younger brigade in Liam Howard and Ayden Wilson for what was most definitely going to be the match of the round.
The Allies have also had troubles in past weeks but with a new president and a very competitive side they and the League are hopeful of a good outcome for all.
Ryan McGannon had the big job of Kael Bergles who has been a goal kicking machine in 2017 while at the other end Jayden Nolan had the job on Andrew Seccull.
The match got underway and there was a fairly strong wind advantage to the pavilion end for which Fish Creek had the advantage of in the opening term.
After a fairly even feeling out period through the first few minutes, it was Fish Creek that attacked.
There were some missed opportunities with behinds to Buckland, Cameron and Manne before finally at the eight minute mark Seccull registered the first goal of the match.
Further goals to Buckland, Manne and Cooper had the Kangaroos in front at the first break 27 to zero.
The Allies had to use the wind advantage in the second quarter and only two minutes in Jackson Nolan scored its first goal.
Fish Creek answered when Buckland goaled minutes later and it was goal for goal; Egerton for the Allies, followed by Danckert for Fish Creek, and then Bergles got his only goal of the day after he was awarded a down field free kick.
The Allies added a second straight when Sigeti took a mark in the goal square and the margin was back to 15 points with only minutes left in the half.
Fish Creek landed on final blow before half time however when Cooper kicked a beauty from a tough position and the margin was back out to 21 points at the main break.
The third quarter although not the highest scoring, was the most exciting and action packed.
Three goals to Fish Creek and one to the Allies were all overshadowed by the report of Bergles at the 20 minutes mark for striking Tom Cameron.
He also got a yellow card and this was a major blow for the Allies team.
Plenty of feeling in the game at this stage but the Kangaroos were standing tall and held a 34 point lead going into the final quarter.
The final quarter and Fish Creek didn’t take its foot off the pedal; a five goal to one quarter iced what was a strong performance against the only side that has defeated them this season.
Next week Fish Creek is at home to Foster while the Allies are also at home again the MDU.

Great effort: Fish Creek youngster Jai Stefani has shown some great performances in the ruck.
