Cowra Blues start finals campaign

The Blues this week enter the finals phase of the CWAFL competition.
Nanjing Night Net

Last year showed that anything can happen at finals time with Cowra coming within two goals of going into the grand final after some fairly heavy losses during the year.

In addition Orange pulled off what many thought was one of the biggest upsets in CWAFL history with a win against the Bathurst Bushrangers in the grand final.

Cowra this week tackle the Dubbo Demons in both first and reserve grades at Mulyan Oval Cowra.

The Blues should go in as favourites in both grades with first grade having a comprehensive win in their last encounter although Dubbo were light on for players ,finals generally change that situation.

In Ressies, Cowra got up by 26 points in their last encounter with Dubbo and would be hoping to get on top if all players are available

Games start at 12-30 for Reserve Grade and 2-30 for 1st grade. Players are requested to be at the ground at least 1 hour before the game starts.

Last Week

The Blues went down in both grades to Bathurst last Saturday to Bathurst at Mulyan Oval.

First grade started well having their fair share of possession but poor kicking at goal cost them dearly.

At half time Cowra had just as many shots at goal as the Bushrangers but were still 15 points behind at half time. Cowra were playing exceptional footy and were really having a crack.

The spectators all had the feeling the Blues could pull off a surprise win at the start of the third term , how wrong could they be.

In probably one of the worst performances in the 3rd term, Cowra tried to play football like it was 2006 again, but, unfortunately without the skill, fitness and team work.

Cowra blew chance after chance stuffing around with unnecessary handballs and passes and ill disciplined play.

The Blues had Mick McVey up forward waiting for the ball to come in but they just stuffed around with the ball instead handing over possession time after time.

Many of the supporters at the ground commented on the promise the game held to half time.

The Blues picked up their game in the 4th quarter but the display in the 3rd term had taken its toll, Cowra going down by 53 points in the end. Note- 2006 was an undefeated premiership year for Cowra where Cowra completely dominated.

In Reserve Grade Cowra lost by 25 points but actually controlled the game for the last 3 quarters and actually won each of those quarters.

The problem was the first quarter which allowed Bathurst to blow to a big lead which the Blues couldn’t claw back.

Well done fellas but in the same case as 1st grade one quarter can well and truly cost the game.

Juniors

The U15’s will be travelling to Orange on Sunday to play the Orange Tigers for the chance to play in the grand final.

Last week the U15’s had a big win against the Bathurst Bushrangers and are in great form heading into the final. Unfortunately the u12’s lost to the Bathurst Giants White and unfortunately ended their season.

The bus for Sundays game will be leaving Mulyan Oval at approximately 9am.

Bullying victims are “morons” – School principal’s comments draw anger

A GRIFFITH counsellor has slammed comments made by a former Griffith primary school principal.
Nanjing Night Net

Former Griffith Primary School principal Christian Cundy has called victims of bullying and students with mental problems “morons” and “village idiots”.

Calare Public School principal Christian Cundy outraged parents and disability groups when he labelled students who may be bullying victims or have mental health problems as “morons”, “nut cases” and “village idiots”.

Mr Cundy made the comments in a newsletter to staff.

In the newsletter Mr Cundy said he wanted teachers to identify students “suffering from undue anxiety, lacking any resilience, poor socialising skills, two heads, webbed feet and village idiots”.

In the letter, he also said: “I will send out a well-scripted letter in week four starting off have you bred a moron? You might like to access the services of Calare’s new initiative, ‘Operation Nutcase’. Sign on the dotted line or leave your thumbprint if you cannot write.”

A local counsellor said Mr Cundy’s comments were a step backwards in encouraging people to come forward if they were the victim of bullying.

“To be calling them morons and village idiots, he’s really living in the dark ages,” she said.

“There are so many people being bullied and it’s really a backwards step with all of the moves to raise awareness.”

She said bullying victims should seek help and people who witnessed bullying should report it or ask the victim R U OK?

Mr Cundy was reprimanded, made to apologise and undergo counselling.

A spokesperson for the Department of Education and Communities (DEC) said the principal “appreciates that the material was unacceptable and apologises for any offence it caused”.

“He has undertaken not to include any material of this nature in future staff newsletters,” the spokesperson said.

The DEC spokesperson said Mr Cundy had not been suspended, but had been formally counselled by the department.

“The Department stresses that the material is contrary to the values of public education and the school’s track record of support for students with disabilities and other learning needs,” the spokesperson said.

Oh, what a feeling! St Xavier’s win school carnival

A JUBILANT St Xavier’s netball side after winning the Anne Singleton Cup last Saturday.NETBALL:
Nanjing Night Net

A strong opening quarter paved the way for St Xavier’s Primary School to take a 28-14 win in the final of the Anne Singleton Carnival last weekend.

The star-studded, local outfit downed cross-town rivals Gunnedah South Public School to claim the championship.

St Xavier’s coach Marryanne Perkins said player’s nerves were heightened with many playing in their first competition final.

The team strategy to “go out strong” in the first quarter worked a treat as St Xavier’s took a handy 12-0 lead going into the first break.

South School were quick to pick up the pieces, tightening their defence and matching their opposition for the rest of the game.

“The court-speed and representative experience of some of the St Xavier’s players was definitely their strength,” coach Perkins said.

“Full credit goes to those players who took the leadership on court and drove the play.

“Above all they are a gorgeous team who work well together and keep it positive at all times.

“I was very proud of all 10 players and thank all the teachers and supporters who came down to cheer them on.”

Perkins offered a special thanks to St Xavier’s netball co-ordinators, Mrs Emma Kirby and Mrs Fiona Hogeveen.

Noreen Percy daughter of Anne Singleton congratulated all the players on their great game and fantastic sportsmanship before presenting the trophy to the St Xavier’s players.

Gunnedah Netball Association thanked all the players, coaches, parents and schools for their continued support of the tournament and hope it will continue to be a part of the school sporting calendar for years to come.

Thanks also went to umpires Teena Sutcliffe and Michelle Tydd and game officials Margaret Stevens and Nerieda Ewington.

The teams on the day were Gunnedah South: Tneesha Milne, Sara Baker, Bridie Kemp, Matilda Betts, Savannah Cull, Chelsea Storey, Kira Mancer and Sophie Williams. St Xavier’s: McKenzie Jones, Paige Gainsford, Alice Gibbs, Grace McLean, Isabelle Shortis, Jade Jolliffe, Matilda King, Neave Duffy, Chloe Verdon and Chloe Perkins.

The St Xavier’s girls head to Sydney next week to contest the Catholic Primary School (CPS) Netball Championships.

Nanjing Night Net

Bulldogs enjoyed a 16-14 win the last time the two sides met, in round 17, and scored a thumping win over Dubbo in the qualifying final last weekend.

In contrast, Orange City had a week off after earning the minor premiership – often the downfall of young sides.

“Bulldogs deserved that win last time, even though we missed opportunities,” Taberner said.

“We’re confident, the last two weeks have been intense.

“We’re expected to train harder at finals time, and that’s what we’ve done.

“We know what we have to do to win. Our forwards need to muscle up and put it over Bathurst and we need to work hard off our set pieces, they will be crucial.”

The under 20s fixture kicks off at 10.50am, at Dubbo’s No.1 Oval.

ORANGE CITY COLTS: 1 Logan Brockmann, 2 Jake Johnston, 3 Harry Cooper, 4 Angus Niven, 5 Ben Wright, 6 Billy Freeman, 7 Harry Taberner, 8 Ben Swadling, 9 Tom Nell, 10 Mitch Green, 11 Regan Skelton, 12 Matt McDonald, 13 Matt Dalton, 14 Sam Sweeting, 15 Terry Brown.

Wellington’s wonder women

Local Wellington woman’s soccer team have defied the odds and defeated Dubbo team Newtown in a tight match.
Nanjing Night Net

Thanks to talented striker Sara Darney scoring the first goal, Wellington took the lead early in the first half.

The score remained 1-nil at half-time, Wellington showing outstanding defence with their strong back line to keep the score Wellington’s way.

The second half saw Newtown coming out strong and fast, determined to challenge Wellington for the win, scoring its first goal.

The game went into overtime with the pressure mounting minute by minute. Each team pushed themselves to the limits after a 90-minute game.

After a quick five-minute break and pep talk from coaches Christie Bradford and Geert Woldhuis, Wellington set out to prove they were serious contenders to have a chance of winning the Women’s Division.

Wellington pulled together and played a performance of a lifetime, proving why they deserved to be in the top four.

The game went into 10-minute halves with Newtown providing strong defence and strong attacks, against Wellington goalie Rhianna Sutherland.

Rhianna proved why she was the most talented goalkeeper in the competition by stopping Newtown in its tracks. Wellington played outstandingly. The final goal was scored from star player Sara Darney with a left kick.

Coach Christie Bradford stated she had never seen Wellington perform as well as they did on Sunday.

“The girls were hungry for the win,” she said.

Come and support the local women’s soccer team at the Lady Cutler ovals Dubbo, Sunday at 9am.

Wellington will play in the finals against Dubbo team RSL 78s where it will be the clash of the titans with Dubbo RSL the heavy favourites and Wellington out to prove they have the determination and edge to take out a win.

All systems go for Greta and Denman

GRETA Branxton Colts and Denman Devils go into Sunday’s A Plus Contracting Group 21 grand final at Greta Oval with full-strength squads.
Nanjing Night Net

Group 21 dominated the Greater Northern Championships and also the Greater Northern senior team and celebrated that in Muswellbrook on Wednesday night. The Group 21 winning side was (back from left) Simon Walmsley manager (Merriwa), Darryl Rando coach (Scone), Justin Apthorpe (Scone), Josh Adams (Scone), Brady Hammond (Greta Branxton), Joey Griffiths (Greta Branxton), Joby Patten (Greta Branxton), Isaac McCormick (Denman), Joe Adams (Scone), Craig Edwards (Singleton), Ben Murray (Greta Branxton), Joel Harrison (Scone), Luke Gardner (Singleton), Marcus Marsh (Aberdeen), Doug Spencer trainer (Singleton), Heath Moore (trainer). (Front from left) Tyler Wolfgang (Denman), Jacob Pottinger (Muswellbrook), Michael Akers (Greta Branxton), Daniel Bates (Greta Branxton), Daniel Ritter, captain (Scone), Ben Hagan (Denman), Tim Smith (Scone), Dave Madden trainer (Scone).

Both clubs enter the replay of last year’s decider, won 20-4 by Denman at Denman Oval, with their best sides in what shapes as a test of the Colts forward power and the Devil “bombing” attack.

Both clubs were also well represented at Wednesday’s Group 21 presentation night at the Muswellbrook RSL where Denman had four players named in the G21 Team of the Year and Greta Branxton one while coach Ron Griffiths shared the coach of the year with Scone’s Daniel Ritter.

Greta Branxton did have six players in the G21 side that won the Greater Northern Championships while Denman produced three.

Greta’s Daniel Bates, Joey Griffiths, Brady Hammond and Ben Murray went on to represent the Greater Northern Tigers in the Country Championships along with Denman’s Ben Hagan.

Hagan was also named one of three Group 21 Representative Players of the Year.

He shared that with Scone’s Daniel Ritter and Tim Smith, the latter going on to win the Group 21 Player of the Year Award.

Hagan deputised for unavailable captain-coach Blake Dureau at Wednesday night’s awards.

His “brain strain segment” with brother, and Scone prop Thomas Hagan, was a funny sideline to the night.

It also offered Ben Hagan the chance to joke.

“I’ve been doing a bit of work with Blake and his kicking game,” Ben Hagan said with a straight face.

It brought a large laugh from the assembled crowd which enjoyed the G21 lock of the year’s humour.

“I joke about it all the time with him,”Hagan laughingly added later on when talking to The Leader.

“But honestly, I’d hate to be one of their wingers or fullbacks,” he said of opposing backs.

“To think that they have got to try to catch some of those bombs or grubbers.

“A lot of our attack does come off his boot and he does have a lot of tricks up his sleeve.

“I’m just fortunate to be playing with him.

“He’s one of the best I’ve ever played with.”

Hagan also said there was a “good feeling” to the side as it prepares for Sunday.

Greta Branxton coach Ron Griffiths acknowledged the threat Dureau’s boot and Hagan’s all-round power game present.

“We’ve trained well, prepared well.

“We haven’t done much different to last year – just tried to stimulate the boys mentally and physically.

“It’s just about getting them up for it now.”

Dureau’s threat is a major factor but Griffiths is confident his back three – Andrew Roberts, Michael Rinkin and Roy Bell – will defuse the kicking raids from Dureau.

“It’s a team effort,” he said.

“We do have our big-game players but all our guys, 1 to 17, will contribute.”

Two televisions were stolen from the lounge room.

Police are continuing their inquiries into the matter. Call 4869 9299 with information.

Officer assaulted

A MAN has been arrested for allegedly hitting a police officer in the chest.

Police were called to a residence in Mittagong on Friday, August 22 to assist Dept of NSW Health officers who were attempting to return a male patient to hospital who had absconded earlier that day.

The week continues until Sunday, August 31 and is a joint initiative between Do Something and the National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations (NACRO).

People are encouraged to donate their unwanted items at home or make a financial contribution.

NSW members of NACRO include Anglicare, Leukaemia Youth Foundation, Lifeline NSW, Mission Australia, Salvos Stores NSW, St Vincent de Paul Society NSW and The Smith Family.

Lifeline Macarthur is offering a 25 per cent off storewide sale (excluding new products) during National Op Shop Week.

The organisation has stores at Moss Vale, Tahmoor, Camden, Campbelltown, Narellan, Ingleburn and Liverpool.

Lifeline Macarthur retail manager Michael Banasik encouraged people to make a donation.

Mr Banasik said residents might have been discouraged by the rainfall, but said the “week is still young”.

“The response has been good across our seven stores,” he said.

However, Mr Banasik reminded Highlanders that not all unwanted items could be donated. He said examples included clothes that were dirty and broken toys.

National Op Shop Week is held to coincide with spring cleaning.
