With numbers around the ball, the youngest Island Bulldogs hung on to win by one point against Wonthaggi Power on Sunday morn-
ing at the Cowes oval.
JUNIOR footy is back and the 2016 sea-
son is off and running.
Phillip Island’s Under 14s played host to
Wonthaggi Power on Sunday at the Cowes
Coming off a great pre-season the boys
were raring to go.
Phillip Island started well with two
quick goals from Harry Anderson and
The young Bulldogs were applying lots
of forward pressure to get the home side
going early. Wonthaggi were using their tall
timber to good effect and they managed
to get a goal back before quarter time as
the Bulldogs managed to keep them at bay
with some great marking in the back line.
The Bulldogs came out in the second
quarter instantly applying the pressure on
the Power and moving the ball around.
Darcy Excell was having a great game
in defence, applying lots of pressure and
breaking down Power’s attack.
Patrick Ryan was taking some great
marks and moving the ball onto the for-
ward line with great effect.
Kirby Fuller grabbed two second quar-
ter goals, followed up by Blake Thompson
and Hayden Smith.
Wonthaggi were finding it hard to get in-
volved as the Doggies kept going, match-
ing them in some very good contests.
The Power started the third quarter well
but the young Bulldogs matched them
in all areas. Fantastic running by Oscar
Marks put the Power under pressure.
Jude Grace picked up two goals in the
quarter, while Keith Robinson was con-
trolling the midfield with some great play,
setting up the forward line with more op-
Both teams where running for every-
thing and not letting up and the Power
managed to pull 2 goals back late in the
third quarter to keep the margin to 3 goals
going into the final term. Both teams had
it all to do in the final term to close the
Wonthaggi’s tall timbers started to get
some possession early in the quarter
but could not finish it off as the Bulldogs
ground missiles shut them down at every
attempt, applying some great tackling.
Keith Robinson was rewarded for his ef-
forts all day with a goal as Hayden Smith
closed the game out with his second of the
The Power got one goal back but it was
too little too late.
The Doggies played great footy, support-
ing each other in all quarters.
It was a great start to the season for the
Final score: Phillip Island 10.5.65 d
Wonthaggi Power 6.7.48.
The youngest Island pups hit the ground
on Sunday morning pumped up full of en-
thusiasm and expectations for a big 2016
After winning the toss and a quick few
words from coach Cashman, the ball was
bounced and the boys went immediately
into attack against Wonthaggi Power.
The Power defeated the Bulldogs by a
point in their last encounter in 2015 and
the home side knew they needed a good
With the midfielders getting plenty of
clearance around the ground the Island
forwards had numerous early opportuni-
ties to hit the score board but could only
find the points.
However good forward pressure and the
defenders pushing up to restrict Wonthag-
gi’s attempts to clear the ball out of defence
meant the game was being played on the
Tully Dickie’s good forward defence and
willingness to run hard to the contest, and
Ben Taylor and Brady Ross working hard
a kick behind the play, allowed newcomer
Tyce kleverkamp to pluck one out of the
congestion and kicked truly for the Bull-
dogs first goal.
Now kicking against the wind, Tully Dick-
ie got the first clearance out of the centre.
A great passage of play resulted in a
strong mark by Jet McMillian, who added
another minor score. This was followed by
more attempts but unable the young Bull-
dogs were unable to find the big sticks.
Wonthaggi started to get their game going
and with a dominate ruckman they were
able to get the ball out in the open spaces
and had the Island boys under pressure.
The backline worked together and were
able to clear the ball out of Power’s forward
line but continual entries by the visitors
eventually resulted in a goal.
Razer Ray Poustie bounced the ball for
the start of the second half and it was game
on with the young chargers from both sides
hitting the ball hard.
Another new player to the side Billy An-
derson was finding the ball around the
ground but the opposition were defending
A big bump in the middle of the ground
left a committed Oscar Kenter “shaken but
not stirred” and sucking in the big ones.
The quarter shifted up a gear with both
sides defences working hard leaving few
opportunities for goal scoring, but when a
small window of opportunity opened due
to the hard work by the Island forwards
Keegan Poustie was able to thread one
through for a goal.
Coach Cashy would be happy with the
boys’ efforts getting to the contest and be-
The final quarter started where it fin-
ished in the third.
The arm wrestle continued with the ins
and unders, Ravi Fostin jet, the younger
Kleverkamp Brandon,Tully, Brady and Ben
all working hard but Wonthaggi , with the
breeze, kept pushing forward and eventu-
ally were able to find their big ruckman
unattended close to goal and he was able
to kick truly.
With a scent of victory the Wonthaggi
boys continued with the push to goals.
The young Islanders were desperately
tackling hard but a big pack mark by an-
other Power tall resulted in their second
goal for the term.
With only minutes remaining the gal-
lant Island pups held on and reversed the
result from their last encounter to come
home with a one point victory.
Final score: Phillip Island 2.9.21 d Wont-
haggi Power 3.2.20.
