The conditions were once again perfect on Sunday for the clash between the Bellingen Bulldogs and the Northern Beaches Blues.
The Under 13's Bulldogs showed their dominance in the first half kicking nine goals to one. This was due largely to the tenacity of Taylor Harris and Jesse Case up forward.
Jordan Steele was influential in the ruck with Ryan Hooper finding some great form in the middle winning the clearances.
The second half was much of the same with Tyreke Whyman and Lochie Rixon getting plenty of the ball around the ground. A rock solid effort down back by Luke Greenwood helped Bellingen deliver a convincing win.
Special mentions go to Nick Fairbanks, Cam Greenwood and Flynn Schreenan for their tireless efforts.
The under 11's game saw a depleted Bellingen Bulldogs side go up against Northern Beaches, premiers for the last 2 seasons and strong contenders again this year.
Despite our home ground advantage the Bulldogs were outclassed in the first half and as a result a few players were swapped between the teams to make the second half a much more even contest.
Wilbur Carter Lynch was relentless in defence and Jarrah Whitmore, Leon Leek and Arlo Bennett demonstrated great perseverance.
The Gelato Bar vouchers went to Isabel Tobey for most improved kicking and Shae Steele for her never give up attitude. Keenan Powell from the under 9's played up a grade for the first time and showed great bravery in contested possessions and tackling.
Last game for the season next week, let's make it a good one Doggies!
