ROUND 14 WRAP + GALLERY
An incredible weekend of football on the south coast of New South Wales unfolded as the Group 7 competition neared the final.
See how things played out across the league.
THE JETS HOLD ON THE RETURN OF THE GORILLAS
The Nowra-Bomaderry Jets survived a late scare from the Warilla Lake South Gorillas to record a 30-20 victory at Cec Glenholmes Oval.
A 90-metre interception from James Hoy gave the Gorillas the best possible start in the eighth minute, with the winger saving a try and rebounding off one of his own as he charged down the sideline.
Beau Luland then turned the tide in the Jets’ favor within a five-minute period, struggling for Adam Quinlan to score, before shooting out of the fool’s half to score one of his own.
The gorillas’ adventurous play from three backs saw them spread the ball wide after a long kick from Nowra, only to see them fumble and Matori Atunaisa picking up the ball to push the lead to 18-6.
When Zac Kershaw broke through from close range to open up a 24-6 lead, Warilla seemed to be in big trouble.
They responded, however, with tries from Darnell Walker, Jake Brisbane and Justin Jones for a converted try at 26-20 with 17 minutes remaining.
However, a pair of penalty goals halted the comeback to keep the Jets strong going into the final run.
A CONTROVERSIAL FINAL SEES THE SHARKS DOWN WITH THE LIONS
The Shellharbour Sharks posted a 14-12 victory over Gerringong in the round game at Ron Costello Oval.
It was not without controversy, however, as the Lions appealed for a winning goal after the bell, only to have it denied.
Taj Ford put a grubber on the siren which the Sharks charged and recovered, before the five-eighth stole the ball while on the ground and ran 40m to score.
However, the match officials deemed the innings complete and Shellharbour took the two points.
With the scores level at 12, a penalty was awarded in the 76th minute for a dangerous tackle, allowing Shellharbour to shoot on goal to win the game.
Jacob Seabrook surged forward from 43m, struck sweetly and raised the flags to claim a famous victory.
BERRY DENIES JAMBEROO IN DEATH
Late drama led the Berry Shoalhaven Heads Magpies to an upset 24-20 win over the Jamberoo Superoos at the Kevin Walsh Oval.
With time running out and the Magpies leading 18-14, Jayden Morgan plowed his way through sloppy defense to take the Roos lead in the 77th minute.
That forced a short kick-off, which could not be recovered by the locals.
With one last roll of the dice, Joe Rogers threw the deflected ball to Blake Dryden, who came on and scored with just 10 seconds remaining to give the Magpies their third win of the season, and their first since April.
THE STRIPES REMAIN AT THE TOP
The Stingrays of Shellharbour retained top spot on the Group 7 ladder thanks to a 24-18 win over Kiama at the Kiama Showground, but not without a late scare.
Seemingly in full control of the contest after James Scott ran nearly 90 yards to score an interception attempt in the 43rd minute to push the lead to 24-6, the Knights launched a charge.
A couple of tries to the right edge from Cameron Cornell and Callan Thistlethwaite set up a grandstand finish for Kiama to pull within six with just over 10 minutes to play.
However, the Stingrays remained solid, closing out the contest to clinch the win.
BULLDOGS BITE EAGLES
Milton Ulladulla made a big statement after defeating Albion Park-Oak Flats 42-18 at Bill Andriske Oval.
A brace from full-back Jarrah Treweek highlighted the win in front of a great home crowd.
The former came off a lovely short pass from running back Sam Stewart, before the latter knocked everyone out of their seats.
A perfect chip from Cody Roach was juggled through the air by Treweek, who regained possession before it hit the ground in a remarkable display of athleticism.
