966 days ago (about 2 1/2 seasons) Yankalilla squared off against the Creeks for the 2012 Premiership on Yanks home ground.
Creeks prevailed by 21 points 14 - 9 to 11 - 6.
Fast Forward to their Round 6 2015 clash and the only similarity to that day is the scoreline.
Creeks again prevailing in a hard fought scrap to win by 9 points 13 - 10 to 12 -7.
What was different today to back then?
Beers have gone up a $1
Crowd was down about 85%
Perfect conditions today compared to the strong Northerly back then.
Only 26.190476 % of players from that GF day battled it out today.
Thats 11 from 42.
Creeks had 5 (Basir, D.James, Saunders, Dave & Nick Warren)
Yank had 6 (Bond, Brannigan-Fisher, P.Fittock, Hunt, James and Sidebottom)
With such a large turnaround of players and loss of experience and some serious talent in a relatively short time it's not surprising
that these 2 clubs have plummeted so quickly.
Tho neither will threaten finals this year they should still be able to provide competitive efforts in the remaining 12 Minor
round matches.
Yank losing playing coach Thomson for the game in the 2nd Qtr with concussion ? was unlucky for them.

Question mark because he was helped from the field and didn't return. Was later told he was concussed.
I guess he was? Have no reason to believe otherwise.

If he was concussed on Saturday I wouldn't be suprised if that's it for Thomson's playing days. He's had several knocks and from what i've heard he's struggled to recover from them.
Success is in trying

Yeah I have to agree DbT .. I am surprised he was even playing . From what I heard on Saturday he would be well advised to hang up the boots for good. Health and Family are far more important than a game of Footy.

Well no real surprise with the 5 winners of Round 7 but the margins certainly were a little surprising.

Goolwa/PE, Myponga and Compass all had BIG wins over McLaren, Willunga and Strath respectively.

Victor scraping in over Yank by only 3 points suggests they still have plenty of work to do to be a serious contender.

Bays had a real tough slog at the Creek to secure a 25 point win pretty much on the back of a 5 goal to nil 2nd term to set up their win.
Both teams defenses made scoring hard despite the perfect conditions with only the IN FORM Neale (6 goals) for the Bays and Keeley (7 goals out of the 8 kicked for the Hawks) appearing as constant forward threats.

Is it too early to say the FIVE is set ?
There appears to be only 5th spot up for grabs at this early stage.
Unless McLaren beat Yank & Creek in next 2 rounds i think it's Mypongas to lose.

Not sure it's Myponga's to loose - although I am looking forward to us having Allen, Gum & Bartetzko in at least 1 game together this year [-o<

Have heard of the McCracken Cup over the years but what is it actually?
Does anyone know or even care?

Rounds are noted on the program. It's a knockout comp and last team standing wins. Winner gets a golf day at McCracken with drinks and food provided after the season ends.

Rounds 1,2 and 7 this year. After those rounds have been completed a ladder is compiled from these 3 round results.

The top 2 sides from this ladder when they play in the 2nd half of the season are playing for the McCracken Cup.

Prize is a day of golf, with booze and food included at Mccracken and is a ripping day for any club lucky enough to win it!

Cheers for that explanation BJ
Really does sound like its worth winning. :drinkers: :partyman:

Well going on that info it seems there were 4 undefeated teams from those 3 rounds.

Goolwa / Port Elliot 3 wins 185.2%
Encounter Bay 3 wins 160.2%
Mount Compass 3 wins 155.3%
Victor Harbor 3 wins 127.9%

So it seems that Goolwa / P.E. will play E.Bay for the McCracken Cup in Round 18

Myponga to bee to strong for a struggling strath
Mclaren to re-ignite their season, lose this and it's curtains
Compass in a goal fest, should be close.. If they win this have to be flag favourites
Goolwa to flex against a weaker side, can't seem to do it against the better teams
Victor to smash Willunga, been disappointing the last 2 weeks

Bays v Compass: Hot Dogs too good.
GPE v Creek: Off the back of 2 big wins, GPE will be too slick for Creek.
Strath v Pongy: Pongy should be too strong.
Will v VH: Interesting with neither side travelling that too well - Willunga coming off 2 near 10 goal losses and VH's form ordinary at best. Some quality returns to the VH side and should see them win. I wonder who will be first to sit Boydy on his arse?!
Yank v McLaren: Yes VH were ordinary last week but Yank really aren't far off the pace esp considering they were without Thomson, Fittock, Wilson, Plant, Lewis +++. IF they get any of that quality back I think Mclaren will be in for a tough day. I'm going for the "upset"?

Hey if he wanted to come back for $0 I'm sure we would have taken him [emoji6]

But why pay a little fella (good as he is) when we've got a stack of young locals raring to go!
Good mates as they are, I'm sure once they cross the white line it will be on!
