Eurobodalla Footy Show Thursday Night 6.00pm to 8.00pm on 2 EAR FM 107.5 Weekend Results for 13-15 May 2017 Group 16 Rugby League It was Moruya’s turn to stage a big second half comeback when coming from 22-6 down to beat Batemans Bay 32-22. The Tigers took all their chances to open up their lead early in the second half, but the Sharks, led by tries to powerhouse forwards Dean Scott and Tim Weyman rallied. As the Bay tired, Jake Hill’s speed saw him bag a double as did flying winger Shaun Staples and the premiers survived an almighty scare. Narooma failed to take their chances when edged out 30-22 away to Merimbula Pambula. They scored virtually from the kick off but found themselves 18-12 down at half time. The Devils scored 3 tries to 2 in the second half but couldn’t catch the tough Bulldog team. In other first grade games, Cooma remains unbeaten after thrashing Bega 36-18 (see the full report below) and Bombala overran Eden 34-16. In Reserve Grade, Moruya won a tough match 22-10 over Batemans Bay, Bega edged out Cooma 16-10, Candelo Bemboka 18-4 over Merimbula. Ladies League Tag, Moruya made it seven from seven with a clinical 22-6 display over the Bay, Bombala thrashed Eden 46-0 and Cooma surprised Bega 18-10. Under 18s saw Batemans Bay have their only win of the day when their impressive squad trounced Moruya 52-4. Bega were also impressive winners 38-12 over Cooma and Merimbula were too strong for Narooma 22-8. AFLSCAFL Round 4 Narooma continued its unbeaten run thumping Eden 25-13.163 to 6.7.43. Bermagui were over run by a rampant Pambula 21.7.133 to 5.7.33 while Tathra were too strong kicking 18.8.116 to Merimbula’s 11.9.75. In the SCAFL Women’s, Narooma are still undefeated, beating Bega 11.8.74 to 2.1.13. Unfortunately, Broulee/ Moruya were outnumbered and not in the hunt, losing to Eden 15.14.104 to 0.1.1 Similarly, Bermagui could not match a hot Pambula squad, losing 12.10.82 to 2.0.12. However, both sides did better than Merimbula who failed to score against Tathra who kicked 14.12.96 In ACT AFL, the Reserve Grade Batemans Bay Seahawks enjoyed their home ground advantage and jumped to an early lead over the Molonglo Juggernauts and held it for the entire game, winning 10.13.73 to 9.5.59. It was their first win on the year. The win inspired their First-Grade team to dominate 18.10.118 to 8.10.58 over Molonglo with Hummel kicking 7 majors.

Ian Traynor From Ashleigh Steinke What a blinder of a weekend with Cooma facing up against the Bega Roosters. Starting with last years premiers the Bega Chicks taking on the new Cooma Fillies; great opening attack put the Chicks off their game and let Cooma slip away with the win 18-10. Under 18's Cooma took on the last year premiers the Bega Roosters and what a neck to neck game it was until the Roosters came back fighting in the second half, dominating the Stallions 38-12. Reserve Grade; the Cooma Stallions fought hard but the Bega team had great ball movement and that showed to be the best on the day. With the undefeated Stallions taking the paddock it was always going to be great game to watch. With a down pour of rain meant that the ball was slipping left and right. With strong defence when needed the Stallions lead the whole game and kept them try-less until the second half. Stallions coming out winners 36-18. The Stallions are now 6 from 6 in the First Grade Fixture. The stallions would like to invite everyone to the Bay next weekend where Cooma takes on Batemans Bay!
