TweetFacebookHigh HeelersThe High Heelers were excited for a big game after the Bay forfeited to the High Heelers in Round 1.

There were early points scored by the High Heelers, setting the scene for the game by Tash Stewart (sponsored by Raw Strength Bombala) and converted by Kayley Keavey. With some great field position it wasn’t long before captain Patrice Clear was in for a try, converted by Keavey. The High Heelers side were still a tad light on, with some key players still out this week, which gave the rest of the girls the opportunity to experience more game time in some unfamiliar positions. The High Heelers rose to the challenge and set plays allowed Lucy Sellers (sponsored by Bendoc Park Poll Herefords) in for a try, as well as Kayley Keavey and Janine Jamieson (sponsored by Jamieson Bros Sawmill) out wide. The halftime score was a comfortable 24-0. The second half saw some quick play and some handy passing to put Kristy Nichols (sponsored by One Agency Bombala) over the line. Abbey Kimber showed some quick thinking to get on a loose in goal ball to get a try herself.

Then with field position again in the High Heelers favour it was a great pass from Katie Peisley (sponsored by D and M Automotive) to Katrina Brownlie (sponsored by Monaro Business and Financial Services) to score her first points for the season.

With a great effort put in by all the High Heelers the girls ran out winners 36-0. Players player and 3 points went to Abbey Kimber (sponsored by J & J Exterior & Interior Design), 2 points went to Georgie Clarke and one point was shared between Patrice Clear (sponsored by Clear Cut Electrical) and Kayley Keavey (sponsored by Dommos Shearing).

Reserve GradeThe Heelers ran out with confidence led by captain coach Clay Stewart. First points were made by Raymond Kading and Mick Sullivan with Clay Stewart converting. Solid hit-ups by Raymond Kading, Nathan Jennings and Matthew Stone continued to lift the reserve grade side. Alex Rosten put his body on the line in defence only to have points scored by the Bay. The halftime score was 12-4. Clay Stewart, leading by example made a line break not long after half time, Nathan Jennings continued the momentum down the field, but it was back to Clay Stewart to score an impressive try in the same set making the score 16-4. The game was proving to be very physical with big hits and tough defence. With good field position and a seamless set play, Nathan Jennings went over the line to bag his own try under the posts. With the try converted by Clay Stewart, the score pushed out 22-4.

With frustrations mounting for the Bay, two players ended up being sin binned for unsportsmanlike behaviour. Nic Rosten captialised on this, demonstrating great pace out wide to score. Shortly after it was Mick Sullivan who put on a lightning run from halfway to score a stunning try out to the left.

With players returning from the sin bin, the Bay put pressure on the line but were held out by the Heelers. Kitt Bryce had the crowd on their feet when he made an impressive one on one tackle to force a loose ball from the Bay. The game continued with physical plays until the siren sounded, the score rewarded the Heelers for their solid game, 30-4.

Players Player and three points went to Raymond Kading, 2 points went to Kitt Bryce and 1 point went to Mick Sullivan.

First GradeThe Bombala First grade team took the field, still with key players out to injury, the boys continue to prove the depth and ability of Reserve Grade players to back up for Firsts is a testament to the clubs dedication and team camaraderie. The Heelers received the kick off and made some great metres through Samioni and the forward pack. Murray Jackson kicked a good ball and put pressure on the Bay and forced an error to regain position. It was Tyler Jones running from dummy half who put the first points on the board. Continued hard runs by Saimoni and Tuwame as well as solid defence by Chris Anderson got the Heelers into optimal field position. Chris Anderson pushed over the line in the corner and put the score to 8-0. Strong runs by Malcolm Stone and Saimoni helped gain field possession and Tyler Jones’s quick thinking to jump on a loose ball made good metres for the Bombala team. Tuwame pushing through multiple defenders, threw a very unselfish ball out to Nic Rosten to score in the corner. Tuwarme converted the try to make the score 14-0. However the Bombala boys soon seemed plagued by unforced errors and continued to let the Batemans Bay team back into the game giving away multiple penalties and putting unwanted pressure on themselves. A short kick off and regather by the Bay had them in for a try shortly after. Malcolm Stone continued his relentless defence and Tuwame followed suit with some great defensive hits along with Charlie Lomas. However Batemans Bay would score again just before half time, taking the score 14-10 in the Heelers favour.

The Bay took the field with momentum all in their favour after halftime and it wasn’t long before they ran in a few unanswered tries blowing the score out to 14-26. The Heelers were really feeling the brunt of their mistake-riddled football. The likes of Malcolm Stone and Chris Anderson were instrumental in getting the boys into decent field position, this allowed the classy football skills of Andrew Anderson to show and go to score just to the right of the posts, Tuwarme converted to bring the score to 20-26. The Heelers would score again to level things up 26-26 but the Bay would have answers and strike back again when allowed too much space to spread the ball, the score was 32-26 in favour of the home team. A converted try behind on the scoreboard and only minutes until full time, the Heelers were not finished yet. Paul Perkins was instrumental in directing a well-executed set play where the Heelers Saimoni would score out wide virtually untouched. With the fulltime siren sounding, the fate of the game lay with Tuwame’s conversion attempt from out wide. As the crowd all drew breath as he closed in on the ball, his strike was sweet and he nailed the two points, locking the final score up at full time at a draw, 32-32.

Three points went to Chris Anderson, 2 points went to Malcolm Stone and 1 point was shared between Saimoni and Andrew Guthrie.

The club would like to thank all the Bombala supporters and those that assisted the players on the day at Batemans Bay. Also the club thanks the major sponsor, Bombala RSL and to all the Jersey sponsors for their continued support of the Bombala players. It will be a home game next Sunday, June 5 against Moruya and the club hopes that the Bombala community will come out and support the hard work of the football club.
