ROSEBUD saw off a desperate finishing burst from Somerville to record a ninth consecutive victory over the Eagles in Saturday’s Telstra Stores Mornington and Rosebud Qualifying Final at Red Hill Recreation Reserve.

The Buds dominated the game for three quarters before some poor discipline sparked Somerville to life and forced the reigning premiers to hang on for dear life to win by seven points and earn a clash with Frankston for the first spot in the Nepean League Grand Final. footy1

Rosebud entered the match on a seven-game winning streak it started with a seven-goal-to-one burst against Somerville back in Round 10, and it again jumped the Eagles with a committed attack and fast ball movement that yielded four goals to one and a crucial 17-point lead at quarter time on the Bendigo Bank Scoreboard.

The advantage was sparked by stand-in captain Rhys Bancroft, who made the step up when skipper Greg Bentley was ruled out through injury, booting two crucial goals to get his team off to a flying start.

He found excellent support from Mornington Peninsula Brewery Man of the Match Ben Dwyer, who was the best big man on the ground, kicking one of those first-term majors.

Seb Krumeich resumed his torment of Somerville forward Billy Rolfe and blanketed him for most of the day, while Nick Boswell provided excellent drive off his wing and Matthew Baker shut Luke Rowe completely out of the contest.

The Buds continued on their merry way with another three goals to one in the second quarter as the rain tumbled on a miserable day in the hills, with Dale Stephens, Ryan Spooner and Chris Zurek impressive, while lesser lights Robert Bos and late inclusion Kurtis Corrin also performed well.

Somerville managed to stem the flow in the third quarter, with Scott Simpson winning plenty of taps but being unable to stop Dwyer’s influence around the ground and Luke Collie having the better of Keegan Downie in the absence of Kane McKenzie, while Ben Crowe and Ben Sedgwick were ever present and Tom Shaw and Jedd Sutton also worked hard.footy4

Leading by 30 points at three quarter-time, Rosebud looked certain victors, and it was still in control despite an early major to Crowe.

But then came a double brain snap.

Eagles coach David Hirst won a free kick for a high tackle 40m from goal out wide, and Brenton Payne was marched 50m to the goalsquare for abusive language, cutting the margin to 15 points.

An ensuing scrap resulted in Boswell upending Hirst and the umpire awarding a second free kick, which the coach duly converted to bring the margin to single figures, and when Rowan Hogenbirk kicked truly shortly after, it was just three points the difference and anybody’s game for the first time all day.

Somerville dominated the next 10 minutes, however could only manage three behinds to one to get within a point before making one last run out of defence.

footy2But Boswell had a point to prove and attacked the footy hard on the outer wing, winning the turnover and getting it across to Sean Downie, who found Dwyer sprinting into the goalsquare with his opponent trailing in his wake.

The veteran Bud took the mark and calmly slotted the goal to see off the challenge and seal the victory.

The Eagles played funny buggers with their selection, leaving Hirst, Hogenbirk and Steve Crowe out of their named 22 when they were always going to play in a disappointing and unnecessary move that makes it difficult for people covering the game and spectators alike – the Buds pulled the same stunt with Bentley when reports were he was never likely to play.

HASTINGS gained its revenge for losing last year’s Elimination Final to Red Hill by sending the Hillmen tumbling out of this year’s finals race with a 21-point victory at Olympic Oval yesterday.

Red Hill kicked the first two goals through Jake Mold and Michael Dillon to get off to a flying start, but the Blues got those back from Matt Clifford and Colin McVeigh before quarter-time.

Hastings then took control through the middle two quarters to all but wrap up the contest with a 32-point advantage at the final change, with all their biggest names finding the scoresheet.

The Hillmen won the last quarter with three goals to one, but there was no coming back this time and Hastings earned a first semi-final clash with Somerville at Glover Reserve next Sunday.

FOUR consecutive losses had left Edithvale-Aspendale with the unenviable task of needing to knock off redhot premiership favourites Frankston YCW just to recover the Peninsula League finals berth it seemingly had a mortgage on for the whole season.

It turned out that a draw was enough.

The final round showdown at Regents Park looked to be going to script when the Stonecats eked out a 15-point lead at half-time, but with nothing to lose because it had already seemingly been lost, Edithvale-Aspendale found a gear in the third quarter.

Led by Mark Mullins, who has missed half the season due to injury, Sean Fisher and Jeremy Heys, the home team kicked 3.4 to 0.1 to take an unlikely lead into the final change, and then defended in the final term like its life depended on it (and it did!).

After two goals to three left the Eagles clinging to a one-point lead, the ball spent the last 10 minutes camped in the Frankston YCW forward 50 as Charlie Martello, Steven Mannix and Aaron Pawel desperately tried to hold off Zinzile Mosimane, Scott McLeod and Michael Debenham.

The Stonecats managed a behind to tie the scores, leaving Edithvale-Aspendale to sweat on the result of Seaford’s trip to Mt Eliza to see if it had enough percentage to pinch fifth spot back.

When word came through that Mt Eliza had brushed the Tigers aside by 46 points, there was an even mixture of joy, relief and anticipation as the Eagles resumed their preparation for a finals campaign.

At Emil Madsen Reserve, the Redlegs were never threatened by Seaford, with Daniel Gormley booting four goals and David Barton and Harper Leonard in dominant touch, despite the best efforts of Curtis Murfett and Kyle Matthews.

Bonbeach needed a huge win over Langwarrin to have a chance of overhauling Pines into third spot on percentage, but in the end were lucky to escape with a thrilling one-point victory at Shark Park.

Bonbeach led by 15 points at the last change with Jackson Casey best on ground, and despite failing to score in the final term were able to do enough to get the points.

Pines gained some good momentum for the Qualifying Final with a comfortable 46-point victory over Chelsea at Eric Bell Reserve, while Mornington’s last season rally fell just two points of a finals berth after it thrashed Karingal by 59 points at Alexandra Park.
