Association A-men contest on
Nuri shot to a one-goal lead at the
main break, with both sides hitting
the scoreboard in the second half.
Gawler coach Matt Kingsmill said,
despite a few outs, the side gelled and
played solid team hockey.
“We defended really well; we were
far more organised in our defence
and put the Nuri attack under a lot
of pressure, and made them really
accountable, which was really pleas-
ing,” Kingsmill said.
“We made the most of our oppor-
tunities, some of our goal-shooting
let us down a little bit; we possibly
could have equalised with them.
“Some of our movement of the
ball, and work off the ball, was really
“Jimmy Mitchell, at full back,
played a really good game; Daniel
Wilson, playing through midfield,
that was his first game back in two
years, did really well; and, obviously,
Jordan (Rhind) continued to offer us
a lot of drive through there as well.”
Cody Longo and Brad Fairey put
the goals on the board for Nuri,
while Tim Newman provided
Gawler’s only score.

Narrow loss for Gawler
Lions suffer strong defeat
central district football club inc. sanfl
A fitting tribute to ‘Thommo’

WOODVILLE-WEST TORRENS at Playford Alive Oval, 2.45pm, Saturday
CENTRAL District paid
a fitting tribute to captain
Paul Thomas in his mile-
stone 250th game on Friday
night, downing Glenelg by 15
The Dogs started slowly, con-
ceding the first four goals of the
game, before responding swiftly
to take a two-point lead at half-
Central entered the match
without gun forward Bryce
Retzlaff, and needed its forward
line to fill the void in his ab-
Jacob Gilbee rose to the occa-
sion, kicking three goals, includ-
ing a brilliant snap in the second
term, to give the Bulldogs the
Gawler Central product Caleb
Edmead also slotted two majors,
while former Kapunda junior
Connor McLean kicked one on
“ We played some really good
footy, it was probably the best
footy we’ve played for a couple
of years,” reserves coach Jeff
“We moved the ball well, we
were aggressive tackling-wise,
and we were really hard at it.
“We certainly were at our best
Friday night in that area; we were
really pleased with it.”
After racing to a 35-point lead
at three-quarter-time, Central
slowed to a halt in the last, as the
Tigers piled on four goals, but
managed to hold on until the
Jarrod Schiller topped the
Bulldogs’ possession getters with
21, while ex-Tanunda player
Matt Prior racked up 14 dispos-
als and led the team for most re-
bound 50s with seven.
THE Central Districts Lions suf-
fered one of their worst away de-
feats in recent seasons, going down
to the South Adelaide Panthers by
30 points on Saturday night.
Following the trend of their previ-
ous games this season, the Lions played
catch-up basketball in the first quarter
after the Panthers jumped to an eight-
point lead in the opening five minutes.
The Lions couldn’t reclaim the lead,
losing all four quarters, despite a spir-
ited third-term rally, which proved to
be too little, too late.
“It comes down to focus and energy,”
Lions’ coach Scott Whitmore said.
“You’re not going to grab a rebound
when your player runs straight past
you; it doesn’t come down to height, it
comes down to intensity.
“This week we will review, like we
normally do, and put some drills in
place that will help the guys with their
Poor three-point shooting held the
Lions back, converting at 32 per cent
from the field, with only six of 29 shots
As has been the theme so far this sea-
son, Central had trouble securing the
ball on rebounds, giving up 21 offen-
sive boards to the Panthers and losing
the overall rebound count by 25.
Chris Clausen was again a solid pres-
ence in the middle for the Lions, keep-
ing Panthers’ big man Brad Reid to 10
points for the game and grabbing a
team-high 11 rebounds.
Three-point specialist Tyler Kennedy
had a poor shooting night, going two
of 12 from beyond the three-point arc.
Kennedy still led the scoring with 17
points, ahead of Clausen on 14.
In the earlier game the Lions’ wom-
en’s team was defeated by 25 points.
After conceding a 12-point lead
in the first period, Central struggled
to claw back the deficit, with South
Adelaide controlling proceedings for
the majority of the match.
Amy Lewis led the Lions’ scor-
ing with 25 points, followed by Amy
Onaca with 14, while Teresa Kinross
and Jessica Mahony spearheaded the
Panthers’ offence with 16 and 15
The Lions travel to Wayville this
Saturday night to play Forestville
Eagles in an Anzac Day clash.
EX-KAPUNDA junior Connor
McLean made a seamless tran-
sition to the main stage against
Glenelg on Friday night, in his
league debut for the Dogs.
The 19-year-old finished the
game with seven touches, three
marks, two tackles and a goal, play-
ing up forward, in an encouraging
sign for Central’s coaching staff.
“He was terrific, we were re-
ally pleased with Connor,” reserves
coach Jeff Brown said.
“He’s got a really good footy
brain; he’s a super lad, he just wants
“He was really competitive, up
there, for us.”
