(Pic: Sydney FC/Jaime Castaneda) WITH one hand firmly on a second consecutive Premiers’ Plate, Sydney FC Head Coach Graham Arnold is eyeing records with the Sky Blues over the remainder of the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 eason. The Sky Blues produced another masterclass at AAMI Park on Saturday night, dismantling in-form Melbourne City 4-0. It follows Sydney’s 4-0 massacre of Wellington Pheonix the previous week. ”We’re chasing our record from last year,” Arnold told reporters on Saturday night. ”We’re two points ahead of that. We’ve got nine goals more than what we had last year. ”That’s how I motivate the boys - 66 points is the greatest in the history of Australian football and we’re chasing 67 points. ”There’s still 21 points to play for and we’re on 49 points so we’ve got a possibility of getting 70 and that’s what we’re after.” Bowling Round-up Hunters Hill Men Club Pairs C/ships P LangwillJ Lowe d G Thongsophon S Donnelly 19/12 G CooperJ HirstdK UyedaD Hanrahan 22/19 K StuartI Ross dB Stuart G Gorton 22/7 G Stuart J Stewart d R Schilling J Mc Donald 25/14 Sat Social K UyedaD Hanrahan J Juniper d R Mitchell R CraigJ Mc Donald 22/13 K StuartI Ross d R Bauer G Norris 27/22 R Carabetta P Nightingale d P LangwillA Hayes 33/13 I Radovnikovic R Schilling d O VandorosS Crowhurst 23/19 Thu Social J Beale K Beatie O Vandoros d V WahlquistG Cooper M Giddens 16/14 P Hirst J Lloyd R Schilling d N Snashall C ArragoniK Saggers17/15 P Gore J Hirst d P Smith P Nightingale 20/19 Next Rd Club Pairs C/ships next Sun morning 9.00 am PETER JACKSON Gladesville Men Wed 7 Feb Social G Gear P Chatfield C Sandstrom dr S Rotondo B Morrow J Roberts 22/22 A BolsterK McFarlane d R Gledhill R Marrins 24/21 Sat Feb 10A Bolster P Chatfield T Beno d G Gear A Macdonald W Cappelletto 27/12 G Douglas G Jones P Coyle d F Alcuri G Merchant G Bricknell 24/13 S Rotondo K Findlay C Paterson d L Dodd R Gledhill C Sandstrom 17/16 C Ross V Moscato d K McFarlane P Mazaroli 27/20 Sun Feb 11 Fours C/ship s/fP Musumeci G Jones G Bricknell P Coyle d J Roberts R Loveridge (sub K Ho) W Cappelletto C Sandstrom 29/16 COL PATERSON Ryde X Phoenix Men Wed Feb 7 Social G Landon G Landon F Moscato d C Peters B Roberts J Gwilym 30/28 U Mere A Locascio B Iacono d K Smith G Butt L Hansen 25/10 J Roberts D Galati A Marcellino d V Ardino D Douglas R Howell 20/18 W Carpenter J McPherson d J Falsone G Carroll 18/132 Sat Feb 10 Social G Landon G Landon D Galati d Averel Cusack Marion Johnston A Rozsnyoi 25/18 J Roberts A Lo- After absorbing a barrage of City attacks, Arnie’s men took the lead via Bob‘ from the spot with Ninkovic making it two for the Sky Blues with yet another fantastic goal close to half time. It was much of the same in the second half as Bob‘ got his second before Mierzejewski wrapped up the three points ten minutes from time. The Brazilian’s second goal sets a new record for the quickest player to reach the 20-goal mark in an A-League season. The result has opened up a 12 point gap at the top of the ladder, with secondplaced Newcastle Jets not in action until next weekend. It’s been another phenomenal campaign for Sydney FC, currently on 49 points from 20 matches as they look to break the records they set in their double-winning campaign of 2016/17. The Sky Blues next match is at the ‘Fortress’ (Allianz Stadium) as they kick-off their AFC Asian Champions League campaign against K-League outfit, Suwon Bluewings. Captain Teresa marks 100th game with a ticket to final Sydney FC’s W-League team captain Teresa Polias became the first womens team player to reach the milestone of 100 appearances. She led her side through to its fifth Grand Final after seeing off the challenge of a gritty Newcastle Jets at Leichhardt Oval, with a 3-2 scoreline after extra time.

We’ve always had quality players and I’m very privileged to have played with every player I’ve set out on the pitch with. “I’d like to thank them, I want to thank all the coaches I’ve been lucky enough to work with as well, and of course the club.” She said while her eight seasons had “merged into one in my head”, the 2013 Grand Final was a huge highlight along with the Club World Championships in Japan. “A lot has changed since season one, we’re recognised worldwide now, a lot of foreign based players want to come over,” Polias said. “Every team has got incredible players coming over now, this season is a great example of how far the league has come because any team can beat the other on their day.

Wednesday 14 February, 2018 THE WEEKLY TIMES 27 C entu ry m ak er Rob son tu rns u p h eat with 1 5 6 A MAGNIFICENT century by number three Angus Robson propelled Eastern Suburbs into the box seat of their NSW Premier Cricket first grade clash with Sydney last Saturday at Waverley Oval. The former Leicestershire batsman smashed an unbeaten 156 to help the Dolphins register 7-369 in first day action after the home side won the toss and batted in heatwave conditions. It was an herculean performance by Robson who faced 286 balls and cracked eleven boundaries during his stellar knock as well as featuring in three key partnerships that broke the Tigers’ spirit. The Dolphins were 2-24 following the early dismissals of openers Adam Ezekiel who was caught by the promoted Suffan Hassan off quick Nic Bills for 17 and Peter Lazarus (4) who was trapped LBW by paceman Tom Ortiz. A steely Robson then stole the show – combining with Ian Moran (67 runs off 105 balls) for a third wicket partnership of 126 before adding 94 runs for the fourth wicket with Sam Smyth (45) and 91 runs for the fifth wicket with Harry Byrnes- Howe (47 runs off 42). Lion-hearted Bills (3-65 off 22 overs) and Ortiz (2-74 off 16) shared the bowling honours for a flustered Sydney attack. MEANWHILE in third grade action at Birchgrove Oval, Eastern Suburbs skipper Mark Morley smashed a game-changing 173 off 152 balls to help the visitors amass 300. The number five rescued the Dolphins who were tottering at 7-182, thumping seven sixes and 17 boundaries and sharing an eighth wicket stand of 98 with tailender James Hooke (29). SECONDS: Eastern Suburbs 220 (Udit Mehta 100, Tom Gallop 25, Matt Sarkies 21, Jon Smith 18, Alex Glendenning 3-24, Alex Bloomfield 3-32, Nick Govers 2-34, Ash Squire 2-66) v Sydney 2-69 (Tristen McDonald 34no, Matt Pasternatsky 26no). THIRDS: Eastern Suburbs 300 (Mark Morley 173, Andy Coles 39, James Hooke 29, Cameron Holmes 3-51, Hugh Sherriff 2-61, Craig Di Blasio 2-63, Liam Scott 1-31, Justin Rodgie 1-42) v Sydney. FOURTHS: FIFTHS: Eastern Suburbs 128 (Rashad Rizme 5-30, Sam Shaikh 2-29, Ellis Sherriff 1-7, Damien Rapisarda 1-8) v Sydney 4-25 (Ksh Cyril 15). POIDEVIN-GRAY U/21 SHIELD (Qualifying Final): Sydney 6-233 (Travis Loxton 96, Nick Taylor 66, Harry Manenti 44no, Michael Sullivan 2-48, Jacob Workman 2-55) d Parramatta 177 (Liam O’Farrell 58, Owen Simonsen 20, George Joseph 19, Evan Pitt 18, Hamish Starr 18, Hugh Sherriff 3-14, Chris Thompsett 2-16, Tyler Meyer 2-26, H Manenti 1-34, Ben Manenti 1-41). Pace ace Hugh named in Green Shield Merit XII RISING Sydney colt Hugh Sherriff has gained selection in the 2017-18 AW Green Shield Merit XII. Regarded as the strongest junior club competition in the world, the AW Green Shield is NSW Premier Cricket’s U/16 competition and forms part of the Club Championship. Based on statistics from the preliminary rounds only, the AW Green Shield Merit XII comprises the top six batsmen in the competition, the top five bowlers and the leading wicketkeeper. Sherriff, a promising pace bowler and capable batsman, capped a fine series by bagging 14 wickets @ 14.50 with a best of 5-29 and skippered the Tigers to the qualifying finals. The strapping quick - who became one of the youngest bowlers in NSW history to play first grade when he made his top grade debut aged 16 before Christmas - was a valuable member of Sydney’s premiership-winning Green Shield and fourth grade teams last summer that brought home silverware. Earmarked for bigger things by keen judges, the talented Sherriff will represent Cricket Australia in a youth international series against Pakistan in Melbourne during April. A student at Christian Brothers Lewisham, Hugh showed his wares last Sunday when he snared 3-14 off seven overs to help the Tigers roll Parramatta in an U/21 Poidevin-Gray Shield qualifying final at Old Kings Oval. Young guns Travis Loxton (96), Nick Taylor (66) and Harry Manenti (44 not out off 32 balls) shone with the bat as Sydney registered 6-233 before quicks Sherriff and Chris Thompsett (2-16 off six), Tyler Meyer (2-26), Harry Manenti (1-34) and spinner Ben Manenti (1-41) combined to skittle Parramatta for 177. The Tigers will now face Gordon in an U/21 semi final on February 25 at Chatswood Oval. Reunion lunch for Birchgrove Scorpions BIRCHGROVE Scorpions Junior Rugby League Club - a force to be reckoned with in the Balmain Junior League during the 1970s and early 1980s - is holding a reunion on Saturday February 24 at Balmain Bowling Club from 1pm. A breeding ground for many a Tigers player over the years, event organisers invite all former players, officials and supporters to attend the get-together. Club stalwart and long serving president Geoff Large said the Scorpions enjoyed a wealth of success - winning numerous premiership and Club Championship trophies - before disbanding in 1987. Birchgrove Juniors were a foundation club of the Balmain Junior League in 1908 and competed briefly in the 1930s before reforming as Birchgrove Scorpions in 1967. Experienced wingers John Davidson and Wayne Miranda were the first Birchgrove juniors to establish themselves with Balmain in the NSWRL premiership during the late 1970s and early ‘80s. Other Scorpions to earn their first grade spurs include two time Grand Final forward Kevin Hardwick; wingers Stephen Kerr and Garry Mara; props Mike Marketo, Mark Clinton and John Bilbija; halves Mick Campbell and Peter Camroux; fullbacks Peter Grounds and Rod Pethybridge; half Mark Ko’cass, Bruce Parnell and utility Jeff Earl.

Four boys and a Tigers’ Mum SOME sporting clubs pride themselves on how many trophies are in their cabinet, but for Lane Cove Tigers Junior Rugby League Club success is being valued differently as the Doumit family sign up their fourth child to play for the club this season. Lisa and Michael Doumit’s four kids - 10 year old Will, nine year old Ollie, seven year old Ben and the newest addition to the club, 4 year old Sam, will all be taking to the field for the Tigers across four different divisions. (He During 2018, Sam will line up in U/6s; Ben in U/7s; Ollie in U/9s and Will in U/10s. If you thought your Saturday mornings were busy just take a moment to think about the logistics behind this family during the junior rugby league season. Lisa is a proud “Tigers Women’s Hockey Kate Cade 0402 421 260 Men’s Hockey James Stephens 0439 601 117 Men’s Masters Mark Richard 0439 424 055 Junior Hockey Kirrily Pereira 0417 808 587 www.rydehockey.com.au mum” and is an ever-present fixture on the sideline supporting her boys. After meeting Lisa it’s not hard to see where her boys’ love of sport comes from. As a paediatric physiotherapist by trade and a competitive triathlete and hockey player for fun, her boys definitely take after her and are determined, respectful players and quick as a whip on the field. “Joining the Tigers family has been great for my boys and also for us as parents,” she said. “To see the boys as part of a team, making Junior Cup opener BALMAIN junior representative rugby league teams opened their 2018 NSWRL Junior Cup campaigns with losses to Penrith last Saturday at Panthers Stadium. great friends while building their confidence and having a heap of fun is really rewarding. But it’s not just about the kids, being able to join the club and give back whilst enjoying ourselves is just as good” says Lisa. The Lane Cove Tigers, who were founded in 1925 but only reformed recently in 2012 as the family focused club they are today, brought in a new rule this year to celebrate this milestone and are offering the third child’s registration FREE. Matt Girvan, Lane Cove Tigers Club Registrar, says “that’s the best kind The Tigers U/16s were rolled 22-0 by the Panthers, who dominated possession in the sweltering heat.

Lane Cove Tigers enjoyed a successful 2017 season - bringing home two premierships at North Sydney Oval and great results across all grades. The Tigers’ Under 9s defeated Asquith Magpies 30-14 in their Grand Final while the Lane Cove Under 11s captured their third successive title with an impressive 40-18 victory against North Sydney.
