The Footy gods looked down on us favorably last week with a nice sunny day a large crowd was on hand to witness our seniors first win for this year. Coach Dowdle was pleased with the boy’s efforts and was rapt to see the boy’s hard efforts at training finally paying off.

Best: M Adams, B Alexander, J Margosis, B Skeers, M Thomas, T Curtis

Our young brigade of skeers, Alexander, Curtis and Margosis continue to improve each week. Mark Adams got through a massive amount of work around the ground and was amongst the best on the day.

The u17’s started the days proceedings off against the CAK u17s for the first quarter being well in touch with the high flying Gullie side, until their coach added two extra players to have 16 against our 14, and the weight of numbers proved too great in the end,

CAK       5:3,          10:9,        13:11,      20:16       136

NthW     3:3,          3:3,          7:3,          7:3           45

Goals: Billy Carey 4, A Butt, J Mildren, B Curtis

Best: A Butt, D Graham, B Curtis, C Carey, J Dennis, J Gregory

all the boys played well with Buttsy, B Rad and newcomer Daniel Graham being amongst the better players.

All three netball games were closely fought affairs, C grade notched up another win 39 to 26, A grade 36 to 43 and B grade 30 to 38 were both narrowly defeated.

The Ressies scored a massive win over the Blues, with Ben Carey showing his pedigree with a 9 goal haul, Alister Batt backing up from the 17s battled hard with Josh Campbell, Ryan Pollack and Jake Gooden all scoring amongst the votes.

NthW:                    10:3,        13:8,        18:13,      22:18       150

Coleambally:         0:1,          1:3,          1:4,          2:5           17

10) Coach Price although pleased to take the reserve grade win is demanding more commitment from his troops as against the top teams playing for 2 qtrs is not good enough, players need more then one nights training, all players are given fair warning – with the numbers coming back from injuries and out of the 17s no ones spot is guaranteed from here on. In the awards D Price won the mug, Jacob Gooden the scribbles café award and Brad Curtis the Wagga Caltex fuel.

NthW:    4:5,         5:9,          8:15,        9:19         73

Marrar:   0:2,          3:3,          3:4,          6:6           42

Goals: B Carey 3, M Honeysett 2, B Hogan, B Curtis, D Selby, J Cox

Best: B Curtis, J Gooden, I Rutland, B Hogan, D Price, J Cox

A good team effort last week saw the seniors overcome an initial 1st qtr Marrar lead to draw even at the 3rd break and lead halfway through the last, however a couple of poor judgement calls gave away easy goals in the last 5 minutes turned what should have been a well deserved win to a 12 point loss. Keep at it boys, work on the goal conversions and more wins will follow.

Marrar:   4:2,          6:2,          8:4,          11:5         71

NthW:    2:2,          48,           7:10,        8:11         59

Matty Thomas grabbed the mug, Dowds seemed to be everywhere was rewarded with the Scribbles Café award and Troy Curtis continued his representative form taking the Caltex Wagga fuel award.

11) Today we turn back time and venture back to Yerong Creek to play TRYC Magpies, the u17’s on Sunday will travel out to Coolamon.

Last week saw the seniors hang on for a 1 point win over CSU in a nail biting finish.

Nth W    2:2,          3:3,          7:5,          8:7,          55

CSU        2:2,          4:5,          5:5,          8:6,          54

Goals: M Adams 2, J Campbell, Jacob May, J May, R Pollack, C Watt, T Strong

Best: M Thomas, A Guymer, M Adams, N Dowdle, R Pollack, T Curtis

The backline and centre all worked well with Ryan Pollack and young Eagle both playing standout games, Dowds and Matty T were inspirational in the centre. Overall a reasonably good team effort from all the boys, let down a bit by our forward delivery and conversions that said the future is looking good for some more wins.

The Reserves win over CSU could have been a lot larger if the goal kicking accuracy was a little more on target,

Nth W    5:5,          8:10,        12:13,      18:15       123

CSU        2:2,          4:5,          7:8,          10:6         66

The u17’s won thanks to a Narrandera walkover forfeit.

12)  Last weeks venture out to Yerong Creek produced only one win from 5 games, however Sundays game at Coolamon saw the u17s victors in an entertaining game.

Daisy outshone some of the younger players to take out the scribbles award, Cambo the mug and newcomer Dylon Flynn grabbed the Caltex Wagga fuel.

The seniors despite matching the TRYC in the last half couldn’t overcome the 10 goal lead they’d given away at halftime.

14)  “Oh how I want to be in North Wagga when the Saints come marching in” rang out loud and true following the seniors unexpected defeat of the reigning premiers Temora last weekend. In front of the gathered players from the 1973, 1983 1st grade and 1993 reserve grade premiership teams our boys put in a cracker of a game, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the crowd. At the main break we were only 10 points down with the whole team playing well. Following the break the boys came out fired up piling on 4 unanswered goals to take a 16 point lead into the 3rd quarter and held on to take a 10 point win.
