Ladies Day

Grounded after a flying start

By Gary Stocks

It was a blistering start at Charles Riley Reserve in front of many of the North Beach faithful on Sponsors Day.

After such a stunning opening quarter it was impossible to predict what would unfold in the ensuing 90 minutes as the O’Rourke Realty A-Grade outfit stumbled to lowly Mt Lawley, losing by four goals.

After leading by 22 points at the first break, it was tough to watch as the Beach unravelled.

The team football, so fluent in the opening 25 minutes, evaporated as the Beach collectively switched off and the Hawks seized the initiative to win 12.8 (80) to 8.8 (56).

It was good to have Ryan Newick back from WAFL duties with Perth, Nic Wells continued his great season along with Jacob Wheelahan and Josh Chapman.

But there was simply not enough contributors on the day and the outcome was that the Beach suffered a bad loss.

In contrast the Lifenet A-Reserves started as they would have envisaged and never took their foot off the throttle as they won 12.12 (84) to 4.8 (32).

The first clearance exemplified the way this unit wanted to play. The inside mids soccered it out of the contest to where the winger got the ball at the back of the centre square, where Jamie Bennett streamed off half back. It was really encouraging to see the younger players in the side take this game over.

Mt Lawley battled hard all day but the Beach beat them on the inside and then the spread overwhelmed them.

Conail McCarthy was superb at full back and was ably assisted by Jackson Martino and Jamie Bennett who provided drive off half back all day.

Jake Moreschini had his best game for the year, comprehensively winning the ruck duel. Cooper Blackburn continued his terrific season with another strong game in the midfield, and Bailey McCauley had his best performance of the year looking lively in the forward line.

Colts players who were elevated to play reserves for the first time, Nick Emes and Kai Marchetto, both had excellent games and indicated they will have big futures at the club.

In the absence of two of their prime movers the Plasterwise Phil Scott Colts still got the job done against Mt Lawley with a dominant 43-point victory.

‘Flat’ threes escape with draw

A welcome respite or an unwelcome interruption?

The Perth Football League mid-season bye can often be one or the other and disappointingly for the Hyrbid Linings C3-Grade the mid-season break for the WA Day long weekend proved to be a momentum breaker.

The third-grade outfit put in a sluggish performance against an opposition they would have expected to cover comfortably but had to settle with a result that saw both teams locked at 6.10 (46) apiece at full time.

Acting Captain Dion Cownie could not have done any more to get his troops over the line with a typically hard running and skilful performance through the middle of the ground. He was well supported by Adam Cockie and Flynn Rose as they battled hard against some accomplished opposition players.

But it was down back where the majority of North Beach’s best performers played. Ben Sweeney and Joel Temm were strong contributors all game and repelled the ball as much as they physically could.

They both marshalled their younger defenders very well and in particular Izakk Mortimer stood up in the absence of senior teammates and put in a terrific shift against older and more experienced opponents.

The Beast Carpet Cleaning C3-Reserves had no such problem slipping back into the groove, methodically despatching Canning South Perth 8.11 (59) to3.3 (21).

In a meticulous team performance the Beach held the Tigers goalless for three quarters, controlling every aspect of the game and once again having Cam Howie finishing off the dominance with three goals.

Similarly, the Indian Ocean Hotel Brett Jones Colts kept North Fremantle goal-less for three quarters at Gil Fraser Reserve as they romped to a 51-point victory – 10.9 (69) to 2.6 (18).

This victory was again built around the dominance of Max Castiglioni, Tom Caiacob, Lachlan Graber, Cody Tayler while Kai Barrett was a force around goals with three goals.

The Progressive Materials E2-Grade had their issues with Wembley, but it was not surprising as they continue to scramble for numbers. They played with spirit and heart but that was not enough to match it with the Magpies as they fell by 40 points – 11.15 (81) to 6.5 (41).

The GJ Osplumb E3-Grade picked up where they left off before the break, winning 11.14 (80) to 3.6 (24).

Mixed results for women, I-Grade

It was again a case of mixed results for the women’s program in big matches against North Fremantle last weekend.

A victory against the Maggies solidified a top five position for the Hair Affair A Reserves Women’s team, and it was a win they got in emphatic fashion, holding the opposition goalless with dominating display by all players.

With the midfield expertly led by Karry Plummer, Rebecca Mirchef and Millie Monaghan winning all centre clearances , it gave the forwards countless opportunities to impact the scoreboard.

A selfless game by Liv Pieters shut down the Magpies key forward –  keeping her scoreless for the match and was greatly assisted by Cara Catterall playing a defensive wing and rebounding through the midfield.

A good spread of multiple goal kickers and forward pressure was also a highlight resulting in a great team win by the Beach.
It was a different game played in the Hillary’s Beach Club A Grade Women, as despite a slew of entries into the forward 50 throughout the match the Beach were held goalless for the first time this season.

Like the match previously, it was a physical game from start to finish with the Magpies using their aggression around the stoppages to take plenty of first possession of the footy.

In a low scoring game where the Magpies scored their first from a 50m penalty, the Beach tried hard to take control but found themselves consistently rebounding from the defensive 50.

Taylah McGorlick played an outstanding game in defence, chopping off many chips into the scoring end with her strong marking and spoiling. Kassi Tyers found herself in an unfamiliar position on the wing, but her defensive style of run and play suited this perfectly.

Gee Shepherd continued her stellar season in the midfield, whilst first year player Shannon Bistrup continues to grow into her role as ruck.

The Beach had opportunities in front of goal with some clever play but failed to convert their chances and turnovers from skill errors on a slippery surface ultimately costing the game. But as always, the Tigers will use the opportunity to improve, and will look to come out firing against Uni on the Club’s 60th Celebration Day.

The BuildNow I-Grade had another absorbing battle but come out on the wrong side of the ledger against Warnbro.
They came with a rush against the Warnbro Bulldogs, but unfortunately they fell just short losing by four points – 6.3 (39) 5.13 (43).

The Beach started off  slowly but seemed to find their way and began to play as a unit in the second half. The last quarter was clearly their best and hopefully they carry it forward.

A highlight was a best on ground performance by Ben Morley who ran his heart out and was everywhere while Ryan Plummer and Lewis Swan played their best games for the club to date. They are really finding their feet and growing in confidence.
