On a day where the sun was
out but the clouds were coming
the Island Bulldogs were taking
on the team from the paddocks
The Doggies had the wind in
the first and Jai Asbury and his
sore shoulder got the first goal
on the board.
Max Mattock and his interest-
ing new hairdo was getting plen-
ty of footy with other midfield
friends Billy Taylor and Brodie
Anderson causing a muck.
Liam Arnold got the sec-
ond and not long after Bailey
Sutherland slotted through the
The dogs went in at quarter
The Garfieldians had the
wind in the second and got an
early goal on the board.
With the backline working
wonders it had the Garfield side
struggling to score.
Liam Sullivan and Alec Farrell
were doing terrific down back
with the ever new back-liner
The Island quite possibly had
their best play of the year in the
second when a long kick from
the backline found Billy Taylor.
Billy played on, handballed to
Max Mattock, Max handballed
to Brandon Lloyd and Bailey
Sutherland finished it off with a
snap around his head.
The dogs had a 13 point lead
going into the second half and
were asked to keep pushing,
and that they did.
Young up and comer Jarred
Pearsall was working hard with
fellow winger Connor Thomp-
son. This enabled Billy Taylor to
go forward and kick a goal with
forward buddies Jack Spencer
and Brandon Lloyd smashing
packs and bruising bodies.
Ruckman Jye Clark was
giving the midfielders use all
around the ground and was tak-
ing strong grabs.
The Island went into the last
by the same amount as the
third, but by the look of it the Is-
landers had a quieter off season
then the Garfieldians.
Through grunt work from the
backline and a thousand marks
from Tom Officer this opened
up every aspect of the game,
with Fletch and Froth going in
hard laying tackles, the Island-
ers used the momentum to re-
cord a 23 point win against a
very formidable opponent.
The young Pups have a well-
earned bye this week and will
look to make the most of it.
After the break the two un-
defeated sides go into battle at
Cora Lynn and if you’re around
the area it would be worth a

land 2, L Arnold, L Wilson
Browne, B Lloyd, J Pearsal.
Best: Mattock, Keating, An-
derson, Officer, Clarke, Pearsall.
Garfield arrived at the ken-
nel Saturday morning, ready to
They dominated the first half
with clean possession and a
greater hunger for the ball than
Cale Farell, Liam Wilson
Brown and Noah Bee Hickman
were having their usual impact
and they battled tirelessly but
they had little help.
With captain Tarquin McMil-
lan sidelined this week, it was
also unusually quiet on the field.
In a familiar half time ad-
dress, coach Brendan asked for
the team to lift and Jack Wilson
did just that kicking three third
quarter goals to get the Doggies
back in the game.
A quick goal to Garfield in the
first minute of the final quarter
did not help but when Nick An-
derson replied with a goal, there
was still hope.
Jarrod Anderson was free
range on the wing and is im-
proving every week.
Unable to goal again, in the
end the Doggies were beaten by
a better side.
Scores: PI 4.8.32, G 6.5.41.
Goals: J Wilson 3, N Ander-
Best: C Farrell, N Anderson,
N Bee Hickman, J Anderson, L
Wilson Brown, J Wilson.
Phillip Island’s Mark Griffin gets another contested pos-
session against Garfield on the weekend.
Club stalwart Rob Linford sends the Island back into the
Panthers inflict first defeat on IK
INVERLOCH-Kongwak has suffered its first
loss of 2017, at the hands of an in-form Kilcun-
Things were looking good for the home side
as Clint McCaughan kicked a goal from a free
kick, early in the opening term despite kicking
against the strong wind.
The early goal was just a small glimpse of the
performance McCaughan put in all day, as he
was looking dangerous up forward and in the
Chris Endres, who also was dominant in the
middle all day, snagged the first major for the
Panthers with a snap from the boundary.
Danny Wells looked to put his stamp on the
game early, marking strongly, dashing away,
and then using the ball effectively often hitting
up KB’s forwards.
Unfortunately for the travelling 21, some op-
portunities went begging, as some poor kicking
for goal resulted in five behinds.
In his first senior game for the Panthers, An-
gus Harrison broke through and finally con-
verted after a strong play.
Down the other end, the Sea Eagles received
another free kick in front of goal, and made the
offenders pay as Dave Newman kicked truly
and reduced the margin to three points before
Now with the strong wind, IK were looking to
take over the contest and Tom Wyatt got them
off to a good start after his classy finish from 50
on the run got them in the lead.
However the hard task of kicking against the
wind fuelled KB to execute some fantastic pas-
sages of play, which was often sparked by Dan-
iel Mock who was continually getting his hands
on it down back.
Mock was able to regain the lead for his side
after a 50-metre penalty insured his set shot
would be worth six points.
Also playing in the defensive half, Aiden Paton
managed to spoil many of IK’s entries, restrict-
ing them to just the one goal in the quarter.
Shem Hawking was looking dominant off
halfback for the Sea Eagles as he gained lots
of possessions and made sure they were used
Unfortunately his efforts couldn’t be convert-
ed into goals, which proved to be a costly ordeal
for the home side.
Lewis Rankin was also holding up the back-
line well for IK, repelling multiple attacks from
After a stoppage at the top of the Panther’s
50m arc, Brent Macaffer quickly kicked for-
ward which Luke James was able to snaffle up.
James calmly split the middle from the tight
angle extending the lead to nine points before
the main break.
Wet second half
As the two sides were preparing for the next
half in the rooms, the heavens opened, increas-
ing the probability that the contest would re-
main a low scoring one.
Yet it was the complete opposite as the Pan-
thers had an astonishing 13 scoring shots in
the third quarter alone.
Also playing his first senior game for KB, Jay
Breen marked uncontested 35 out and finished
Soon after, Breen was again in the play as he
hit up James in the forward pocket for what
seemed to be an easy set shot.
However he turned to his right and hand-
balled off to Jason Wells to put it through,
opening his account in his 100th game.
The home side responded shortly after, as a
KB mistake was quickly turned into a goal to
The IK goal was quickly answered as James
marked and goaled once again which was fol-
lowed up by another goal from Jason Wells af-
ter the Sherrin spilled to the front of the pack
allowing him to wheel around and slot an awe-
McCaughan added another goal to his tally
after he smartly snapped over his shoulder to
reduce the margin back to five goals in the now
extremely wet contest.
It was Danny Wells down the other end that
snapped a goal on the run despite the ‘bar of
soap’ like condition of the ball.
Harrison added a second goal to his tally af-
ter a shot for goal skidded through and James
capped off the dominating quarter as he re-
ceived a free kick right before the siren, which
resulted in his third goal for the day.
Being 45 points down at three quarter time,
winning in the pouring rain was a massive ask
for IK, but it was clear they were not prepared
to give up the four points easily.
Corey Casey worked his way through a tag to
impact the match and launch it forward as did
youngster Ryan Sparkes, whose skills were ex-
ceptional in the wet.
Cameron Allum, who was playing in the ruck,
also worked his way into the contest booting
IK’s first and only goal for the fourth quarter.
Both sides slogged it out in the deadlocked fi-
nal term, resulting in many stoppages and little
After a low scoring term the siren sounded
signalling KB as 38-point victors.
This week both sides will have a chance to
relax as country footy halts for the interleague
