South smash North in Old Timers weekend match

By Stuart Kavanagh

It was Old Timers weekend for South Broken Hill Footy Club this weekend just passed and this year they were celebrating the 2002 Premiership side.

Both the reserves and the senior men’s sides celebrated in style on the pitch.

The reserves were never troubled in a comfortable 52-point win over Northies.

North barely bothered the scorers, managing only two goals and two behinds.

That was in stark contrast to the South reserves, who easily piled on 10 goals to account for their opponents.


The good times rolled on for South as they recorded an emphatic victory over the Bulldogs in the seniors.

Another bag of goals from South’s goal machine Cody Schorn headlined the monstrous victory as the Roos annihilated their opponents by 104 points.

Although he didn’t quite hit the heights of last week, Schorn managed to score six goals to outscore Northies from his own boot.

The writing was on the wall from the opening siren when South kicked a goal inside the first 30 seconds.

Things didn’t improve for North as they struggled to get any meaningful inside 50s for the entirety of this first quarter.

Kicking with the breeze, the Roos held Northies goalless in an ominous sign of things to come.

It was more domination for the home side in the second quarter.

North managed to bag a couple of goals kicking into the wind, but South maintained their stranglehold on the contest and took a 40-point lead into the half-time break.

The procession continued after the halftime break as South piled on the goals and the Dogs had no answers.

The match finished with South 19.16 [130] defeating North 4.2 [26]

Following the runaway victory, the South boys jumped the fence and sang the club song on the hill.

It was a moving moment as the current side celebrated the win with the 2002 premiership side, honoured at the club this weekend.

The win sees South hold their massive lead at the summit of the men’s league. Next week they travel to Jubilee Oval to take on the rock-bottom Mighty Robins.
