Tigers protect title Memorial Shield remains at Tantanoola H J.L. J.L. “FRED” firstname.lastname@example.org 15.20 (110) 3.7 (85) THE Neil Von Duve Memorial Shield remains safe in the keeping of Tantanoola followed the meeting of the Tigers and the Murphies at Tigerland on Saturday. First awarded in 2008 to honour the memory of the exTiger and ex-Murphy player and MSEFL umpire, the Tigers have now achieved an unprecedented hat-trick of victories. Although the final score showed a margin of just 25 points, the home side seldom looked threatened after the long break. The two teams had gone into the long break with six goals a piece but the home team had booted an additional eight behinds. The home team took a stranglehold on the match in the third term and ensured 100-gamer Robbie Versace would have another reason to celebrate. Tantanoola Glencoe Tantanoola v Glencoe At Tantanoola 4.8 6.11 11.18 15.20 (110) 2.1 6.3 9.4 13.7 (85) GOALS – Tantanoola: G. Gascoyne 3, T. Stringer 2, R. Versace 2, R. Clarke 2, C. Hamilton 2, M. Pilmore, C. Williams, J. Williams, T. McGrath; Glencoe: A. Hentschke 8, T. Hawke 3, B. Mitchell, L. Allison. BEST – Tantanoola: L. Smith, S. Tincknell, C. Saint, J. Williams, J. McRostie, T. Stringer; Glencoe: T. Hawke, A. Hentschke, K. Clark, D. Childs, B. Swan, J. Bates. Early in the last quarter, the margin had shot out to 45 points and then the visitors added some bonus goals after the sting had gone out of the contest. It was only the inaccuracy of the Tantanoola forwards and a superb solo effort of 8.1 from Glencoe forward Alex Hentschke which kept the scores relatively close throughout the match. At game’s end, the prize of the coveted Neil Von Duve Medal for best-on-ground appeared to be a three-way choice. Speaking on behalf of the clan, Gareth Von Duve commended the games of Hentschke and Tiger Sam Tincknell who took the mark of the day in the third term. However, the memorial medal was awarded to Tantanoola onballer Cameron Saint. The Murphies will continue to struggle without its leaders Adam Price (captain) and Simon Brook (coach) who are sidelined with injury. Another worrying sign for the club is that another senior player was yellow-carded and sent from the field for an indiscretion. Defender Ben Swan received his marching orders for a 15 minute spell early in the last term when his team had a slim hope of victory as the difference was less than four goals. More MSE football on page 32 THE misery has continued for Hatherleigh as the reigning premiers succumbed to Kalangadoo at home by 53 points. It was not a pretty sight for home team supporters as the Eagles posted the lowest score (7.9) of round six, suffered the biggest defeat and had their score more than doubled. In what is becoming a worrying trend for Hatherleigh, it began the game without posting a goal in the first term. A return of just two behinds was a miserable effort for 30 minutes of football while Kalangadoo was able to boot 4.4 in this period. The Magpies were never headed thereafter as the lack of confidence of the Hatherleigh line-up was exploited. IN FRONT: Tantanoola’s Tim Stringer is first to the bouncing ball. Magpies swoop on Eagles Kalangadoo 15.14 (104) d Hatherleigh 7.9 (51) In a tough day for forwards, none could manage more than three. Tom Bell was the sole home team player to achieve this tally while the visitors had four (Alexander Lyon, Anthony Kilsby, Tyler Jones and Matt Doody) and this may explain why they posted a 53 point victory. Kilsby kept his place at the top of the goalkickers tally while his side retained third place on the ladder. After the MSEFL competition resumes following the interleague weekend, Hatherleigh will travel to ‘Mick’ and Jean Walker Oval to take on undefeated top team Mount Burr. Kalangadoo’s next challenge will not be easy as it will host Port MacDonnell which is in the midst of a lay-off lasting three weeks.
