GROUP 16 Round 13 Results
Moruya held its Indigenous round at home on Saturday, accounting for cellar dwellers Batemans Bay 40-4 in a fiery game. Tiger Mason Harrison was sent off for head butting and a number of players were sin binned. The Sharks lead 16-4 at half time, running away with the game in the second half, with captain Dennis Green and outstanding back rower Dean Scott both scoring doubles. In other games, Narooma’s season of losing the close ones continued, pipped 26-24 at home by Merimbula. The Bulldogs have now taken third spot on the ladder following Bega’s 26-16 loss to undefeated Cooma. In Bombala, the home side were too strong for Eden winning 36-8.
Next week is the last round and barring major upsets, Moruya looks likely to clinch fifth spot and an elimination semi-final berth against Bega, the team they face this week at home. If Moruya loses Eden can jump over them but will need to a win away at Merimbula and Narooma head to Bombala. Batemans Bay finish their season with the long road trip to Cooma.
Batemans Bay retained the Robbie Stewart Shield with a hard fought 30-22 win over Moruya. This local derby saw many players who have played for both clubs and is now a keenly sort fixture. Bega defeated Cooma 26-20, Candelo-Bemboka defeated Merimbula-Pambula 30-6 and Bermagui-Cobargo were forced to forfeit their match to Bombala.
Batemans Bay swamped an undermanned Moruya team 70-12, Bega too strong for Cooma winning 34-20 and top side Merimbula accounted for Narooma 38-14.
Moruya were too well organised for a young Batemans Bay team winning 40-4. Fellow competition leaders Bombala scored a solid 26-4 win over Eden, Merimbula won their double header weekend thrashing Narooma 48-0 and Candelo-Bemboka 30-6 and Cooma surprised Bega 22-18.
SCAFL Round 11
Narooma confirmed their premiership credentials with a 20.18.138 home win against Tathra. The visitors lead at the first change, but the Lions took charge after that, grabbing a comfortable lead, and holding it for the rest of the game. In a surprising low scoring game. Pambula kicked 4.8.32 to Bermagui’s 2.3.15. Merimbula inflicted more pain on the undermanned Eden winning 22.9.141 to 3.4.22
In the Development League, Narooma too good for Tathra, winning 13.7.62 to 4.4.28. Pambula won the local derby, defeating Merimbula 8.16.64 to 2.315. Broulee Moruya had the bye. However, the Giants had a near perfect day on Saturday at Kyla Oval, Tuross Head in four great games against Bermagui. The Giants Womens had a good win 9.8.62 to 7.5.42, the Under 16s way too good winning 16.9.105 to 3.4.22 and the Under 11s opened the day with an accurate kicking display, winning 13.3.81 to 8.12.60.
Above: Big thumbs ups from the BMG women for their fantastic game with their highest scoring game to date.
Bermagui’s Under 13 spoiled the party defeating the home team 7.648 to 2.4.16.
In the ACTAFL, Batemans Bay Seahawks at home annihilated a disappointing Googong team 27.21.183 to 1.3.9. While appreciating the win, no one likes to see scores and games of this nature. The Reserve Grade had a rare draw against Googong 14.10.94 each. In Rugby Union Batemans Bay Boars defeated Booroowa 44 to 14 at Hanging Rock on a day that celebrated and host the Indigenous Rugby Union Round. Read more of the day here
