MIXED fortunes last week with the netballers having just
the one win but putting up a real fight and the football a draw for
the day with a win and a half each. The seniors fell agonisingly
close but a much better effort than round one will see us remain
positive moving forward.
Griff Underwood celebrated his 150th senior game in style
with his usual top performance. This week he notches his 200th
club game with what will be another awesome effort. Griff will
run out with Dylan Rash who also celebrates his 200th club game.
Well done boys on a wonderful contribution to the red and white.
Jarryd Swift leaves this week for Queensland and we will
miss him both on and off the field. We hope he’s not away for
too long and we wish him and his partner Gabby all the best.
Jarryd was the worthy recipient of the Stan O’Neill medal on
Colleen Swift and Maudie O’Neill have just returned from
the UK where they met their new granddaughter and great grand-
daughter Charlotte. Charlotte is the first child for Jess and John
Batty who have both played for Yarram and are currently resid-
ing in Ramsbottom! Our congratulations to the growing Batty
Swift family and well done to Nana Colleen and Poppy Muz.
Toni and Peter Jenkins have just returned from a trip to Chi-
na where they took in the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the
Terra Cotta warriors and many more sights. Toni did her best to
boost the Chinese economy along the way.
Three of our young thirds stepped up into senior ranks last
Saturday. Will Bodman played his second senior game and was
named in the best, whilst Jacob Davis and Liam Farley played
their debut game and both impressed with mature performances.
Well done lads!
The Hawaiian Lu-au evening was a great success with lots
of hoola hoola and a bit of bunga bunga! Louis Rodaughan and
Sarah Lush were crowned Kahuna and Wahine of the night. This
week is a family night with Koko the Clown performing for all
to enjoy his fun and magic. Make sure you bring the children
along for a yummy value packed dinner and some fun and fri-
volity after the match.
Dinner this Thursday is hamburgers and snags with the fa-
mous brown onion gravy with mash and veges and KFC chicken
on Saturday night.

Let’s make sure we have a red hot Demon go on the week-
end against Heyfield . Go You Demons!
Such a big game going up against the 2015 pre-
The mid court and shooters worked tirelessly,
demonstrating their developing unity. Defensive
pressure was put to the test with some big changes
Em Lane had her debut in the side gaining nu-
merous intercepts and was a strong contender on
the court! Abby showed her outstanding defensive
skills, putting her body on the line providing count-
As a team the work ethic was undeniable, never
dropping our heads and working till the final whistle,
great effort girls!
Best on: Abby Pettitt
Another tough game for our Demonettes playing
against a very skilled and experienced team, and it
showed on the court. With a couple of niggling inju-
ries our girls put up a good fight but Rosedale were
too tough and ran away with a good win! With more
training and if we start to utilise each other more we
will be in for a good game next time.
Best on - Kansas Martens for a great, hard game
and never give up attitude!
Super competitive game this week against strong
opponents. Outstanding effort by the entire team,
who should all be proud of the tremendous game
they all played. Lots to work with going forward!
Thanks to Steph and Stella for filling in and Chloe
for such a talented game for a youngster coming
through the ranks!
Best on: the team!
We came up against a very experienced team this
week but we all gave it our best shot, and also had a
chance to try out some new positions. The game has
given us some things to work on at training. Good
team effort with some great passages of play.
Best on: Daina Hughes, for never giving up and
trying your hardest till the final whistle. Well done.
We have definitely seen a lot of promise from the
last two games! We came up against a well oiled side
but definitely chipped away at them! All the girls
tried lots of different positions this week, keeping
the focus on passing. It was a great team effort and
we are keen for the weeks ahead!
Best on: Nicola, who played a ripper of a game in
defence, giving them a run for their money!
The girls went out hard at the first whistle to take
a strong lead early in the match against Rosedale.
A few positional changes throughout the match
worked well for the team.
The girls came out with a strong win but let’s not
get complacent as we head into a big match against
Heyfield this weekend.
Yarram Netball Notes
Yarram kick themselves out of win
Rosedale played out
a thriller at Yarram
on Saturday with the
lucky to come away
with the four points.
Yarram stepped up a gear
after their lacklustre round
one defeat and had the Blues
playing catch up footy for
Yarram looked like it was
going to run away with the
game in the first quarter and
could easily have done so if
not for its inaccuracy in front
Rosedale looked a little
shell shocked as they broke
from the quarter time huddle.
The second quarter was a
more even affair with the De-
mons still managing to main-
tain the lead mainly due to
the efforts of Underwood and
As the teams headed to
the rooms for the long break
Rosedale was faced with a big
reversal of form if it was go-
ing to pull this game back.
The difference between
the two sides in the third quar-
ter was Rosedale being able
to kick straight while Yarram
wasted opportunities. Scores
were locked at 61 a piece go-
ing into the final quarter. 150
gamer Grif Underwood was a
class above as he tried every-
thing in his football arsenal to
get the Demons over the line.
They had their opportunities
to wrap the game up but a few
wayward shots on goal was the
difference at the final siren.
YARRAM and Rosedale
played out a thrilling draw
in the Reserves match at
Yarram on Saturday.
In a low scoring affair
Yarram played determined
football to halve the points
Mark Smallwood was the
main goal scorer for the De-
mons, finishing with three of
his team’s six goals. Smith
took out the award for best
afield for the Demons while
Delaland was the main con-
tributor for the Blues.
Yarram Thirds record-
ed a strong win against
The young Demons
jumped its opposition early
and went into the first break
six goals up. The Blues fought
back in the next two quarters
before the Demons kicked
away again in the last to re-
cord a nine goal win.
Jim Saliakos was the prin-
cipal architect of the win with
a superb four quarter effort.
Liam Bentley, Kyle Wyett
( 3 goals) and Braydn Wil-
son all played strong games
with Zac Richards contribut-
ing from the wing with two
goals. Jacob Cooper played
creative footy and the goals
were spread throughout the
forwards and midfielders.
Will Bodman was busy early
before being rested for se-
nior duties. Jacob Davis and
Liam Farley were also main
contributors until they were
rested for the same reason.
Congratulations to Jacob
and Liam on their first senior
games where they acquitted
themselves well. A pleasing
aspect of the Thirds win was
the even contributions of the
whole team and the teams
ability to surge away in the
final term with all three senior
