ROUND 11 of the Barkly Australian Football
League 2015 season played out last Saturday
at Purkiss Reserve oval, leaving only three
more rounds to go before the finals.
The Spitfires proved that they still covet their position
in the pecking order and are not ready to relinquish a
premiership without a fight after they trounced the YDU
boys with an 18-12 (120) to 5-4 (34) victory.
Andrew Baker kicked a massive eight goals followed
by Dane Nichols with five, Selwyn Club two and one
each to Plummer, George and Walden.
Goal kickers for YDU were Damien Campbell with
three and one for Jason Burton and Hosea Crafter.
Ali Curung were due to battle it out with Elliott in the
second match but they were unable to field a team on
the day and so forfeited the round to Elliott who picked
up a 10-goal score without even pulling on their togs.
Once the schedule was re-jigged and the junior fans
had an extended free-for-all on the oval, the highlight
match of the day kicked in between Janapurlalki Eagles
and the Barkly Work Camp team.
A tight fast game saw Isiah Farrell-Nelson kick five
majors and Noel Jones four, with one each to Waistcoat,
Corbett, Hayes and Bloomfield for the Eagles.
BWC fought bravely to the final siren and came
within one straight kick to claim the title but it was
not meant to be.
Soaring home with a 5-point lead, the Eagles narrowly
defeated BWC 15-9 -(99) to 14-10-(94).
Emerick Johnson and Douglas Watson put 4 big ones
through the sticks, with two goals for Ricky Douglas
and singles for Peterson, Martin and Willis.
Although the new change rooms are complete, delays
in the finalisation of the usage agreement with the
Barkly Regional Council may not see them come into
use before the end of the 2015 season.
This year’s Grand Final will be decided on Saturday
19 September and it is sure to be one to remember.
BAFL heats up
as nears finals
TENNANT Creek marathon runner Adrian Dodson-
Shaw, who now lives in Broome, was at Uluru to greet a
group of local runners who were there to run around the
world’s most famous rock.
Adrian has impressed everyone by competing in the New York
and North Pole marathons so the Tennnant runners were very keen
to meet up with him.
The Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP), founded by world mara-
thon runner Robert De Castella, devised the Deadly Fun Run Series
(DFRS) for those from remote communities who are not quite ready
to tackle the big runs.
Anyinginyi Sport and Recreation (ASR) got right behind the DFRS
by facilitating events in the Barkly and when the DFRS Champion-
ships came around in July, three home-grown deadly runners were
supported by ASR in order to participate in this year’s championship
run at Uluru-Kata Tjuta.
“Dane Nichols, Crystal Johnston and Zac Limerick travelled down
for the event which coincided with the 30-year anniversary of Uluru-
Kata Tjuta being handed back to traditional owners,” ASR manager
Marcus Maher said.
“We were very proud to be there at such an historic moment and for
our representatives to participate in the fun runs and the10 kilometre
relay around the base of the rock itself.
“There were representatives from about 60 remote communities in
the relay event so it was a great opportunity for these three young
people network with a broad cross section of Aboriginal Australia.”

and Crystal Johnston.
