Camel’s streak has broken

Saturday’s game was the straw that finally broke the Camel’s back. 

Reigning champions Eastside Blues brought the Katherine Camels back to earth, interrupting their undefeated season. 

Saturday’s NT Worksafe Big Rivers AFL competition saw the Blues steal the win 10.11 (71) to the Camel’s 10.3 (63). 

Both Eastside and Camels have given each other their only losses this year.

Eastside have won six of their seven games played and the Camels seven of eight. 

Camels and Tindal Magpies have both played an extra game due to the annual Anzac clash back in April.

They will both have a bye this weekend. 

Tindal may need that week to rest up after getting a thumping from Katherine South Crocs 2.5 (17) to  27.15 (177).

The Magpies have been really struggling this season and are languishing on the bottom of the ladder.

Saturday also saw Kalano Bombers thrash Beswick Bears 16.11 (107) to 10.2 (62). 

The two games this weekend will both be played on Friday night.

They have been relocated from Nitmiluk Oval to RAAF Base Tindal due to Territory Day celebrations on Saturday night.  

The Beswick Bears play The Crocs at 6pm and Kalano Bombers will play Eastside Blues at 8pm. 

This weekend will be the last round before teams take the long dry season holidays break until July 28.

Meanwhile the fortnightly competition is struggling with consistency with at least one team forfeiting every meet. 

Jilkminggan are undefeated on top of the ladder with six wins under their belts. 

The Waliburru Thunder are sitting second on the ladder with four wins, followed by The Gurindji Eagles, Minyerri Tigers and Beswick Hawks, each with two and finally Lajamanu who are yet to secure a win this season.
