LOCAL FOOTY: Superdogs enjoy a big win


by Nick Kossatch

A new look Riverland Superdogs outfit took to the park at Lyrup Oval and demolished River Murray by 47 points in the masters AFL over 35’s season opening round. From the outset, new recruit and son of West Adelaide 1983 premiership player Ben ‘Ben 10’ Meuret, dominated with strong marks and rebound from centre half back. He also booted three goals when in attack. Paul Rowe showed plenty of heart in the forward lines and he also kicked three majors. It was experimentation as coach Darren ‘Titty’ Tieste ‘threw’ his side around. Brenton ‘Fenno’ Fenwick provided plenty of drive off a wing and small, very small, forward Johnny ‘The Whiz’ Barrett played a much bigger role than he usually does. The magic of Kenny ‘Baker’ Karpany and Mark ‘Knackers’ Upkett dined on the accurate taps in the centre square but the ruckman, whose identity shall remain nameless, was penalised for three separate 50 metre penalties during the game! Regular defender Anton ‘Wow’ Coats enjoyed a cameo forward role with two goals and new players Shane ‘Rambo’ Uren, Andrew ‘Froggy’ and Andrew Giles also starred in their first official game for the ‘Dogs. They play against Pooraka this coming Sunday in Adelaide.
