Navy too good
on the greens
CERBERUS Football Club has broken
its premiership drought, claiming its first
Aussie rules flag in 51 years by beating
Chelsea Heights in the Southern Football
League thirds grand final.
The all-Navy team, known as the
"Dogs", withstood a late challenge to win
8.15 (63) to 8.5 (53) on September 17.
While Cerberus did not kick a goal dur-
ing the final quarter, its backline stopped
many opposition attacks and, with support
from the midfield, controlled the game to
secure the 10-point victory.
Among the standout play-
ers for the Dogs were ABBM
Jesse Meyer, LSETSM
Matt Holmes, SMNET
Dillon Slater, SMNCT Josh
Courtney, SMNCK Danton
Winter and SMNET Ned
SMNET Orchard was
named man of the match for
his standout efforts both in
the ruck and backline.
Coach Steve Phillips was
proud of the team effort, par-
ticularly for standing tall in the final quarter.
Co-captain ABBM Meyer said the con-
test was the "most intense" he had ever
"When we were only up by a few points
in the last quarter and Chelsea continued
to push, the final siren couldn't have come
sooner," he said.
"All of the boys were exhausted but
somehow managed to find that something
extra to get us over the line."
Defenders LSBM Corey Nicoll and
LSSTD Andrew Smith set the tone for the
team, acting as a wall and repelling Chelsea
Heights' many first-quarter attacks.
The Dogs failed to capitalise on their
early dominance due to inaccuracy in attack.
Knowing Chelsea Heights would fight back
with the wind in the second quarter, Phillips
deployed a spare man across half-back.
The tactic stemmed the opposition's
onslaught toward the end of the first half,
allowing the Dogs to take a narrow lead at
the main break.
Wayward kicking again cost Cerberus
in the third quarter and allowed Chelsea
Heights to stay in touch at the

time address, and his players
The premiership capped
off a stellar year for Cerberus
Football Club, which won
a number of trophies includ-
ing the Kapooka 12s plate,
the Bev White Cup against
Dandenong and the
Community Cup against the
Club president and Cerberus XO,
CMDR Shane Glassock, paid tribute to the
efforts of a small but dedicated committee
which had worked hard over the past 12
months to ensure the club's survival.
"The result was that more than 60
players had been able to take to the field
this season to represent HMAS Cerberus,
and had all played a part in getting
through the home-and-away season unde-
feated, and ultimately winning the pre-
miership," he said.

Tobruk to the sword, 4-3,

"I got lucky. He kicked

match for us," he said.
The final had ended in
a 1-1 draw following goals

Success' victory speaks
volumes of the crew's
never-say-die attitude as it
overcame fatigue and the
crippling heat to win two
penalty shoot-outs in the
final and semi-final.
Team captain ABBM
Liam Chandler attributed
the win to hard work and
"a little bit of luck".
