WILDCATS travelled to
Maffra to play in sunny
The first quarter saw some great
clearances and solid enthusiastic
plays at both ends of the ground.
Maffra’s speed saw them break
away to score. The wind came up in
the second quarter.
Solid play by Charlie Dillow and
Hamish McLeod saw the Wildcats
have lots of possession of the ball
early in the quarter. The defenders
worked well together to limit Maf-
fra’s scoring opportunities. A great
mark from Adam Janssen, followed
by clever play from Rory McLeod
resulted in our first goal kicked by
Maffra made the most of its
scoring opportunities in the third
term. Woodside had a few good
clearances but Maffra’s defenders
were too strong and we weren’t able
Some good tackles slowed Ma-
ffra’s progress in the final term but
they continued to score well to run
out winners against our Wildcats.
The team ran out the quarter on tired

lifted. Lili Aho was back to her best

In the third quarter the young
Wildcats really hit their straps. Jack
Foat in the centre pushed the ball
long while Grace Dillow was using
her pace to elude the opposition and
help her team.
Ashton Jansson took advantage
of all this good work. He couldn’t
miss in front of goal snagging a
beauty from the boundary.
The last quarter saw Frank Cup-
ples and Kiera Walpole kick great
team goals. The awesome work of
the rest of the team, in particular
Ryan Van de Lustgraaf who was
having a great game getting to the
bottom of the packs and Sam, who
laid some impressive tackles, capped
off a fun game for all players. The
award winners this week were cap-
tain Emily Williams, Ryan Van de
Lustgraaf and Kiera Walpole.

Yarram to fight move
YARRAM Football Netball Club is fighting to stay in
the NGFNL after a leaked document last week showed
clearly that the AFL Commission inquiry has them back
in the Alberton league.
The club has met with the commission and has stat-
ed it wants to stay where it is. Yarram has also asked
its members to fill out a survey and express their views
and will be seeking the support of other NGFNL clubs
to stay in that league.
They have also sought the support from Federal
Member for Gippsland Darren Chester who has con-
firmed he had written a letter of support for Yarram
Football Netball Club to remain in the North Gippsland
Football Netball League, at the request of the club.
Yarram Standard believes the AFL Commission
have a number of options on the table but its preferred
DWWWW, Fish Creek, Foster, MDU, Stony Creek,
Tarwin, Toora and Yarram. Yarram must gets its views
to the commission by Wednesday, May 25.
Alberton tribunal results

tigation and suspended for one week, expiring on May
15, for the following reportable offence: 19.2.2(a)
(vi) engaging in rough conduct against an opponent

IT was all go last weekend with a full agenda of
football and netball on the Saturday followed by more
football on Sunday and the big reverse draw event
where Jess Byrne had the big crowd up on their feet and
dancing for hours.
Thank you to Daniel Missen and Megan Barnes and
everyone else who helped make this a great event.
The members’ draw has jackpotted to $400 this
week. So make sure you stick around to see if you are
the winner. The draw happens at around 6pm on a home
game and you must be in the rooms to claim the prize.
Congratulations to Shaun Lothian and Brydie Foat
who both played milestone games on Saturday. Both
players have been very loyal club members since we
reformed in 2008 and for that we thank them.
The ressies turned it on for Shaun with a great win
while the D Grade girls tried their hardest to win one for
Brydie as well. Maybe this week Brydie.
Our littlest Wildcats ventured to Melbourne on Sat-
urday to play in the half time Auskick match at Etihad
Stadium. By all accounts they had a great time.
This Saturday is our annual Pink Day and night.
The club is honoured to be associated with such a great
organisation as Sale based Footprints Foundation whose
mission it is to help families living with cancer with day
to day chores and activities. This year’s event is about
raising awareness of all the things they do.
The footballers will swap the blue hoops for pink
ones and the netballers will wear pink shoe laces and
ribbons. The over 35’s netball match will be a highlight
of the day and will be played following the A Grade
After the game teas will be served from 6pm thanks
to the Foat/Arthur families who are preparing gourmet
hamburgers and sweets.
It is set to be another very busy weekend with all the
action starting on Thursday night with another delicious
meal planned by Bec Morton and crew and then the all
important teams being announced.
The junior netballers take to the court in Sale on
Saturday at 12.15 for the Under 10’s and Under 13’s
at 1.30pm. The Under 10s football is at Woodside this
Sunday commencing at 10am. The Under 12’s play at
the Briagolong oval at 10.45am.
WILDCATS welcomed back some big
names to its line-up this week and were
able to do enough to claim the four points
over Glengarry at Woodside.
Glengarry turned it on in the first term kicking more
accurately than the Wildcats which wasted its opportuni-
ties around the goals.
The second term saw some rearranging of positions
and the Wildcats were back on track. Wildcats kicked
five goals in this term through the efforts of Michaelidis
and Jones who deprived the opposition of the football at
Glengarry allowed the Wildcats to get under its skin
in the third and some undisciplined play gifted the home
side opportunities in front of goal which they took full
These gifts lifted the Wildcats which finally started to
play good, team football. They ran away from the Mag-
pies, kicking seven goals, four points while the visitors
could only manage two goals of its own.
After some home truths from their coach at the three
quarter time huddle the Magpies came out ready to play
in the final term.
For the first half of that quarter they left the Wild-
cats in their wake, but let themselves down with some
indirect football which allowed the Wildcats to hold on.
When Love slipped a pass to Whiteoak who kicked truly
it steadied the nerves of the Wildcat supporters. Minutes
later Foat’s mark and goal would seal the Magpies fate.
Wildcats chalked up its second win of the season on

WOODSIDE Wildcats will go pink
this Saturday against Heyfield in
a bid to raise awareness about Sale
based Footprints Foundation.
It is the third season that these two clubs
have played a Pink Day match and both are
proud to be involved with such a wonderful
organisation as Footprints.
Footprints Foundation helps families liv-
ing with cancer. Volunteers go out to homes
and help out with gardening, shopping, cook-
ing and cleaning, all the little things that make
life just a little easy for families affected by
Pictured from left, Wildcats Daniel Mis-
sen, president Ivan Best, senior coach Gary
Jones, netballer Brydie Hurrell, senior cap-
tain Ryan Foat and Corey Whiteoak are all
looking forward to doing their bit to get the
message out there about the work Footprints
A tight first half saw the Wildcats just four points up
at the long break.
Fired up by their coach they hit the ground running
but it was Glengarry who scored first and looked like they
might have the edge. However the Wildcats steadied with
the help of Stevenson and King who were being subbed
on and off the bench.
The final quarter again produced some great football
with both teams leaving nothing out on the ground at the
end of the day.
Webb was outstanding in front of goal with six beside
his name while Berkhout once again was the Wildcats
best afield. Wildcats by 31 points.
