TweetFacebookPAT Gillingham and Josh Wheeler led the way as Newcastle City produced their best performance of the Black Diamond AFL season to stun Terrigal Avoca by 23-points and end the Panthers unbeaten run.

The home side took the lead in the second term and held strong on the way to a 15.4-94 to 9.17-71 victory.

Gillingham kicked the opening two goals, including a snap over his head, as the Blues made the visitors pay for inaccurate kicking.

Tied up at quarter time, City lifted and kicked four of the first five goals of the second term to lead by 10 points at the main break.

Wheeler was outstanding and Andrew Willmot was also dominant.

The Panthers kicked the first three goals of the second half to regain the lead, but the Blues responded with three straight, including one to best on ground Wheeler.

Wheeler end Gillingham both finished with three.

Player coach Chris Bishop was the best with two in a poor day for the Panthers forwards.

In other games on Saturday, Warners Bay survived a late come back by Singleton to win 12.8-80 to 11.11-77.

Ryan Sorenson kicked six for the Bulldogs.

At Adelaide Street, Jackson Ireland kicked four majors to help steer Killarney Vale to an emphatic win over Nelson Bay 17.14-116 to 7.17-59.

Three people rescued from Kremnos bushfire

Posted on 29/06/2018 by

Three people have been airlifted out of the path of an out-of-control bushfire in northern NSW as the blaze bears down on dozens of properties.
南京夜网

The NSW Rural Fire Service has issued an emergency fire warning for the blaze at Kremnos, south of Grafton. It is too late for residents near McGills Road to leave and they should seek shelter as the fire approaches, the RFS says.

A helicopter has already flown three people to safety at Kremnos. The fire was burning in and around their home as they were rescued.

The state of their property is unknown.

Instagram user Aliciajtownley posted an image of a burnt-out landscape at Halfway Creek, about 17 kilometres from Kremnos.

 

The fire has been burning for 24 hours and is heading in a north-easterly direction towards Curlew Drive and Sandstone Drive. Firefighters are working to protect homes.

The Kremnos blaze is one of 96 fires burning across NSW, most of them along the north coast.

“The Rural Fire Service is of the view that many of these fires are the result of escaped private burns,”  RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said.

“The outlook is for hotter and drier months ahead. This is a massive wake up call.”

BFL: Sacked Sebastopol coach Phil Carman says the right call was made

Posted on 29/06/2018 by

Sacked Sebastopol coach Phil Carman earlier this year.SACKED Sebastopol coach Phil Carman says he feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders.
南京夜网

Carman coached his last Ballarat Football League match for Sebastopol on Saturday, in his side’s 111-point loss to Redan.

It was Sebastopol’s seventh 100-point plus loss for the year, in what has been another winless season for the Kookaburras.

The former VFL/AFL star said the decision by the club to cut him loose three games from season’s end was the right call and he held no bitterness towards Sebastopol.

He will be replaced by interim coach Wayne Sheridan for the rest of the season, who has coached the under-18.5s for the season, while last year’s senior coach Shawne Dummett will coach the underagers.

Carman had originally signed on for two years but told the club during the week that he would not stay on board for 2015, at which point the decision was made to end his tenure after Saturday’s game.

“It would have been a case of just going through the motions if I was there for another three weeks, it was a good call,” Carman said.

“To be honest I feel absolutely wonderful. I can honestly say a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”

Carman still lives in Bendigo and was forced to drive more than 90 minutes to training twonights a week, as well as on match day.

Sebastopol president Chris Parker said it was far from ideal to have a coach that was not part of the Ballarat community try to resurrect his side.

“We felt it wasn’t the right thing for our group to have a coach that doesn’t live in the town,” Parker said.

“We need someone that is in the town that is still connected with the league.

“We don’t want to be in the same position as last year where we don’t have a coach late in the year. The search starts now.”

Carman was signed in November last year and was the last BFL coach to jump on board for the 2014 season.

He admitted he was behind the eight-ball to start off with, with no big recruits and only an extremely young list at his disposal.

“I’ve never had to coach sides where players can play without training, I don’t think that would happen with other clubs in the league,” Carman said.

“It was too hard to build up good relationships with the players when I was living so far away.”

The Burras have won just one match in their last 52 games, but Carman said he thought it would be possible for someone to turn the club around.

“They need to recruit heavily but also keep everyone they already have,” he said.

“It will be hard for whoever steps up, but it is possible.”

Sebastopol faces Melton, Bacchus Marsh and Ballarat in its three remaining games for the year.

CHFL: Bombers stun Burras with brilliant comeback

The Bombers moved a step closer to securing a Central Highlands Football League top four berth with a memorable five-point win over reigning premiers Hepburn in a rematch of last year’s grand final.

In a dull and scrappy affair for the opening three quarters, the Burras looked home for all money when they kicked the opening goal of the final term to extend their lead to 37 points.

But the Bombers weren’t done with yet.

In a victory that will live long in the memories of those that witnessed it, the boys in red and black booted the last seven goals of the game to snatch a 10.7 (67) to 8.14 (62) win.

The result continues the Bombers’ unbeaten run on home soil, which stems back to round 12 of 2011.

After a quiet opening three terms, star onballer Sam Turner turned it on with three final-quarter goals, including the winner with a long set shot to send the Buninyong fans into rapture.

Bombers coach Jarrod Morgan also helped ignite his side with two goals to begin the fightback, while forward Adam Scott lifted in the last quarter with a couple of important majors.

The defeat sees Hepburn, which was led by the likes of onballer Brad McKay, ruckman Brendan Sutcliffe and forward Michael Watt, who went back as a loose man in defence in the final term, slip from third to fifth on the ladder, while Buninyong remains second.

Meanwhile, the upset of the weekend took place at Ballan as the Blues defeated Springbank by 25 points.

Sea lion surprise for paddle boarder

Posted on 29/06/2018 by

Vitalik Chipurim watches as the sea lion seems determined to get onto his board. Photo: Robbie RichesA man paddle boarding near Trigg had a big surprise this morning when a sea lion tried to climb onto his board.
南京夜网

Vitalik Chipurim said he was paddling just off the dog beach north of Trigg when he saw something grey swimming in the water.

“I thought it was a person until I got closer and saw it was a sea lion,” he said.

“I fell off my board a couple of times as he swam around, and for about ten minutes the sea lion was as interested in me as I was in him.

“He was floating around the board and at one time tried to get on the back of it.”

The mechanical engineer, who is a regular surfer, paddler and kite surfer, was delighted with the close encounter.

“I wasn’t nervous, I was really happy with the seal lion. Although I was a bit nervous in case there were some other things around – the kind of thing that eats seals and sea lions,” Mr Chipurim said.

The whole encounter was filmed by GetFishing南京夜网.au director Robbie Riches, who was at the beach at the time.

Mr Riches said the encounter took place just 30 meters from the beach. He has uploaded the pictures and video to his website.

It was Mr Chipurim’s second close encounter: eight years ago he was surfing off the Great Ocean Road in Victoria’s south west when he had an encounter with a seal.

“I didn’t see it at first and then I noticed my friends on the beach shouting and pointing at something in the water close to me,” he said.

“That made me a bit nervous. Then suddenly the seal and I saw each other. I don’t think he had noticed me until then.  He belted off in one direction and I belted off in the other.”

Sea lions inhabit several islands off the metropolitan coastline, including Carnac and Garden islands.

It’s been a big week in art… with Jim Pavlidis

A photobomber crashes Captain Cook’s selfie.This September, the reason footy fans will fill the MCG won’t be thanks to astute management by the AFL suits, but the fans’ love of the game’s traditions.
南京夜网

Ditto the recent World Cup finals, where the toxic smell coming from FIFA head office would have killed off most living things.

But what happens when the stench from a sporting event comes from its own genesis?

That’s what you have with the competition formerly known as the Empire Games. There’s no escaping the uneasy symbolism of the Commonwealth Games, and thankfully some Aussie athletes are doing their bit for historic accuracy in Glasgow via their fists and ill-tempered comments.

Empire remains a tough concept to market. Even if Emanuel Phillips Fox’s 1902 painting of Captain Cook’s landing at Botany Bay were altered to depict the Captain’s selfie photobombed by a curious blackfella, the awful truth of what followed remains.

Earthquake registered near Cessnock

Posted on 29/06/2018 by

A seismic sensor array in Coonabarabran detected an earthquake 10km from Cessnock on Friday morning.
南京夜网

Michael Phillips operates theseismic sensor and saidthe event occurred around 6.15am.The earthquake measured 2.4 on the richter scale, with the epicentre located near Cessnock.

The exact location of the Seismic activity. Picture: Google

The estimated depth of the quake was about 1km and it’s likely that some residents nearby would have felt the small tremor, with Mr Phillips likening it to a “short, sharp, china-cabinet-rattler”.

Mr Phillips runs the Edward Pigot Seismic Observatory and forwarded the technical details from Friday’s event to Kevin McCue, Director of the Australian Seismological Centre, who placed the earthquake just south of Cessnock.

Geoscience Australia have yet to verify the seismic activity, but are expected to do so in the coming days.
