2024 SunCable BRFL Men's and Women's Round Four Recap

BRFL RD4 Recap

The Katherine Camels got a comfortable victory over Katherine South before the Arnhem Crows handed Eastside their first loss of the season as the Crows solidified their position as one of the premiership favourites in the 2024 SunCable Big Rivers Football League (BRFL).  

Under the mid-day sun, the Camels kept the scoreboard ticking over as Katherine South could not keep up.  

Brittany Daly was rewarded with a best on the ground as captain Sarah Assmus kicked four goals. Maya Netherway and Cassandra Glover were also both recognised for their efforts.  

Katherine South, Harriet Rowe, Madison Hohn, and Teegan Wattam were acknowledged for their commitment despite the result falling away to a 45-point win to the Camels.  

In what was built up as a potential Grand Final preview, the Arnhem Crows left Eastside in the dust as the Crows stormed home with a 68-point win.  

Jenna Singh Lippo (four goals), Lynelle Ahfat, Lahlisha (Bush) Gordon, and Jonita Kingsley (two goals each) were the difference-makers in the clash against Eastside.   

With the game sealed, Lahlisha (Bush) Gordon and Jenna Singh Lippo are tied at the top of the goal-kicking ladder with 10 each as Jonita Kingsley moved to third with seven for the season.  

In the men’s, Ngukurr claimed their second win of the season, as the Crows made it three in a row.  

An interesting contest played out on Nitmiluk Oval as the Katherine Camels and Ngukurr battled it out in a ferocious contest.  

It was a shootout to start the first term as four goals straight to Camels played three goals, one behind at the first break. The arm wrestling continued well into the second quarter, as Camels added two more goals, with Ngukurr also putting on two goals and two behinds as Katherine had a three-point lead at the long break.  

After the halftime break, Ngukurr took the lead with a two-goal, three behinds in the third to just one goal, two behinds for the Camels. This would become a sign of the momentum swing as Ngukurr finished the game with three more goals to secure a 16-point win.  

Jake Farrell took out best on the ground as Dwayne Hall and Brain Joshua partnered nicely in the midfield. Lester Gumbula and Jimmy Hall kicked two each for Ngukurr with Daniel Vercoe kicking three for the Camels alongside Josh Carlin and Jake Seadon with two each.  

The Arnhem Crows claimed a win after the game was called off against Eastside.  

The Crows flew straight out of the gates with nine scoring shots in the first quarter with Eastside unable to get their game going.  

The start of the game set up the rest as scoring became more of a struggle.  

Elton Camfoo kicked three goals in a potential best-on-ground performance, with Adam and Timothy Kerinaiua having strong games and Peter Lane, who has been one of the Crow’s most consistent players to start the season.
