Sun Newspapers WEDNESDAY, November 14, 2012. 23 Chris Dunne continued his recent record against Buffaloeswith a seven-goal haul, while Thomas Motlop chipped inwith five Teams stand solid By JACKSON CLARK Brendan Fevola turned out for Waratahs on the weekend against St Marys but struggled against strong opposition. TIWI Bombers defeated Southern Districts in a high scoring shootout where 48 goals were kicked for the match. The Bombers booted 27.11 (173) to 21.14 (140) to win by 33 points in a match where the ball went from end to end. A ten- goal to six opening term set the scene for the rest of the match. Districts spearhead Damian Cupido played another starring role with a bag of 11 goals to take his season tally to 57 in only six matches. Ross Tungatalum and Rupert Pupangamirri were exceptional with their silky skills and run and carry. A couple of concentration lapses from Darwin in the second and third quarters led to its 28-point loss to Wanderers. The improving Buffaloes outfit only trailed by one point at the first change but conceded 12 goals in the following two quarters allowing Wanderers to win 19.11 (125) to 15.7 (97). The margin at three quarter time was 51 points which was too much for the Buffaloes to overcome. Chris Dunne continued his recent record against Buffaloes with a seven-goal haul, while Thomas Motlop chipped in with five. St Marys recorded another clinical 24.12 (156) to 11.3 (69) win over Waratah at Gardens Oval on Sunday. Brendan Fevolas inclusion into the Warriors line up did nothing to fluster the rock-solid St Marys. Fevola looked unfit and was carrying a knee injury which limited his influence on the match and restricted him to only two goals. At the other end, small forwards Justin Cooper and William Rioli kicked five majors each. Nightcliff kicked 19 goals to two after quarter time to record a 20.9 (129) to 6.6 (42) win over Palmerston at Nightcliff Oval on Sunday. Palmerston started the match well and at quarter time led by three goals. However, the Magpies capitulated after the first change and by half time the match was all but over. Luke Jarjoura played a starring role up forward with seven goals while Jayden Kickett and Jono Peris also had good games. Pirates sink Phantoms PIRATES beat Phantoms in the local water polo last week at Parap pool. In the end the Pirates were too strong and ran out winners 10-5. Pirate striker Eric Vanweydeveld continued his good run in front of goal, top scoring with three goals. Paul Bragg scored one in his first game for Pirates. Despite the scoreline both sides came up with heavy attacking play and it was a hard-fought defensive game with several major fouls awarded. The season continues until mid December. New players welcome.

THE second induction of the AFL Northern Territorys Hall Of Fame welcomed another generation of champions. From St Marys 11-time premiership player Noel Long, to Pioneers 1940s champion Henry Peckham and Katherine legend Doug Kelly, the heart of Territory football was on show. Collingwoods 260-game player Nathan Buckley took centre stage as one of three players to be recognised with legend status. Buckleys playing career began as a 17-year-old with Southern Districts in 1989. Port Adelaide premiership player Peter Burgoyne and Richmonds Joel Bowden also joined greats like Michael McLean, Michael Long and Darryl White on the legends wall. Wheelchair-bound St Marys premiership player Billy Roe, the first Territorian to play in Perths WAFL, was assisted on to the stage by family and friends. Vic Ludwig, St Marys president from 1962-2004, spoke on his behalf. Ludwig, also inducted for his services to the Top End game, told of Roes long trip with his family by horse and cart from Broome to Katherine as a youngster. From there the family moved to Darwin where Roe progressed to senior ranks at St Marys and a premiership with East Perth in the WAFL. Bowdens career was outlined by his dad Mike. The kid from Alice Springs who carried on his familys great tradition at Richmond by playing 265 games was unable to attend. Hall Of Fame inductees: Joe Bonson, Leo Castillon, Henry Peckham, Doug Kelly, Billy Roe, Vic Ludwig, Cal Dean, Noel Long, Benny Lew Fatt, Ted Cooper. Legends: Nathan Buckley (Collingwood); Peter Burgoyne (Port Adelaide); Joel Bowden (Richmond).
