Report

Bondi raiders won Gridiron News South Wales’ Waratah Bowl V in 1989, by a single point over Sydney Uni Lions. The Sydney Uni Lions looked like they had it in the bag with less than 90 seconds on the clock, but a series of errors deep in their own territory cost them the game.

The Lions had to start from their own seven yard line after receiving a punt, and then QB Eric Carrier was sacked on his own four yard line. On third down they went for a long pass which was sensationally intercepted by Free Safety Joe Desmid, giving the Raiders a last shot.

Back-Up QB for the Raiders, James Hayes, hit sent a 36-yard pass to flanker Harry Pavlidia, and then a draw play gained them another seven yards to the Lions’ eight yard line. Again QB Hayes found his man, Harry Pavlidia, who slipped into the endzone. Powers kicked the extra point which proved to be the difference between the teams, but it was the strange decision to go long earlier which cost the Lions.

The first quarter had been scoreless, and in the second Lions QB Carrier found Tom Boardman for a 75 yard TD reception. Another long punt by Powers had the Lions on their 3 yard line, and on a QB sneak Roy Herman stripped the Lions QB of the ball giving them possession on the 5 yard line. With 30 seconds to go in the half Rookie Brett Mason scored on a counter play, and with the kick good, both teams were level on 7-7 at the half.

In the third quarter there was no scoring, but in the fourth the Lions QB pitched out to John Kirby in the backfield on a third-and-nine. Carrier then swung out left and Kirby sent him the ball back and in he went for the score. The Raiders were stunned, but managed to regain composure and block the score. This set the scene for the crazy scenes at the end of the game. [Ref: 7]

Report

Gridiron, or American Football, was first played in South Australia in 1986. The Eastside Razorbacks won the first Championship 36-12 over the Brighton Breakers. The other two teams in the League the inaugural season were the Port Adelaide Spartans and Southern District Longhorns. They were joined by the Eagles for the second season, and the Razorbacks repeated as Champions, winning 7-6, again against the Breakers.

There were no new teams in 1988, and the Port Adelaide Spartans upset the status quo, beating two-time defending Champions the Eastside Razorbacks 18-0 in the Final. The 1989 season saw an expansion to six teams as the Elizabeth Lions entered the fray. The Razorbacks won back their title 28-12, against the Brighton Breakers, yet again – the third time in four years they had beaten them in the Final.

Report

After a short 2-game season for each of the three teams in the American Football Canterbury League, Warhawks (2-0) took on Wolfpack (1-1) in the Final in what the AFC website described as a final for the ages between the two AFC titans.

Wolpack’s Rookie Quarterback Josh Thompson settled early in the game and connected with his receivers for 4 Touchdowns, including a bizarre fumbling play which left the Warhawks defense baffled as they rushed towards the ball leaving the Wide Receivers open for a late score that sealed the game.

Warhawks QB Steven Harris was also in fine form, proving hard to stop, however, a crucial Interception by cornerback Jaka Payot settled the Wolfpack defense.

The Warhawks got into a game tying position late in the game behind Captains Anthony Vea and Steven Harris, but the late fumble play score settled matters, with standouts for the Wolfpack including rookies Nick Smith and Corbin Menchen. [Reference: 1]
