Magpies swim over
Cincinnati Dockers in the Rain!" Myk Aussie
Daniel Russo, Media Relations Dallas Magpies.
The Dallas Magpies Australian Rules Football Club, unable to play its
usual free-flowing game due to a game-time downpour, adopted a scrappy
style of football in the wet and rain to convincingly beat the Cincinnati
Dockers 64 to 14 on Saturday. The game, played at Lookout Park in
Richardson during persistent heavy rains, left both teams scrambling to
keep possession of the slippery football. But the Magpies better adapted
to the adverse, soggy conditions for a convincing victory.
After the Dockers
kicked the opening goal, the Magpies roared back with nine unanswered
major scores of their own to put the game out of reach.
With the victory,
Dallas now leads the all-time series 3-0.
victory was crucial for the Magpies, keeping them in the hunt for the
Mid-America Australian Football League title after losing a nailbiter in
Chicago just two weeks ago.
to the thunderstorms, the 2 p.m. kickoff was pushed back to 2:45 p.m.,
and when play got underway the ground was deep in water. Though the rain
never let up, many valiant supporters were rewarded with an exciting and
hard-fought game of underwater football.

an Australian native who is currently a punter on the Cowboy’s roster.
opened up the scoring quickly to take the lead with a 6-point goal in the
first two minutes of play. But Dallas answered strongly, and kicked away
in the first quarter with four unanswered goals, three of which were
scored by Dallas’s team captain, Stuart Rackham, playing in front of
the goals in the full forward position.
The second and
third quarters were controlled by Dallas’s on-ballers, Anthony Guterres
and Seth Haesecke, who made sure that Dallas would win the contests when
the ball went loose on the wet ground, as it continued to do throughout
of the few memorable clean possessions of play followed a center bounce
when rover Brandon Blankenship ran clean through the middle, scooped up
the ball and launched a 40-yard bullet of a drop punt to Rackham that
never rose above head height. Dallas
extended its lead in the second half by running fresh legs off the bench
and keeping the forward line free so that Rackham and center half forward
Glen Paton could control play in front of the goal. Sean Stover and Sean
Neary played stalwart defense in the second half, stopping the ball from
ever getting past the center half back line.
the final horn, the Magpies had earned a thorough 50-point victory, led
by Rackham, who kicked six goals in the rain and mud.
now moves up in the MAAFL standings to third place with a 2-1 record.
With the MAAFL title still well within reach, the Magpies face two tough
back-to-back road opponents in Nashville and Atlanta before playing their
final home game in Dallas against Milwaukee in September.

GOOD START TO 2004 FOR MAGPIES
Beat Baltimore/Washington! The Magpies started off the season in
style with a victory over the Baltimore Washington Eagles. 10-13
(73) Magpies to 2-7 (19) Eagles. Despite the wide final margin, the
game was a closely contested and physical battle. Matt
the Magpies webmaster has produced a video compilation of the match,
located on the Magpies homepage at www.nyfooty.com
to Razzle Dazzle ‘em in Chicago. The Pies fly off to Chicago this
weekend to play the Chicago Swans at Rogers School Park. The game
also coincides with the Swans' 2nd Annual Aussie BBQ Day, so they will be
cooking snags and burgers during the game (while the Magpies are kicking
goals). The BBQ is in conjunction with the Aussie Consulate and the
Chicago Sharks, the other major Aussie Rules team in Chicago. Last
year approximately 250 people were in attendance, so tell your friends in
the Chicago area to come along as it should be very fun.

USAFL Club Development Coach Named.
From the USAFL.
USAFL is proud to announce that Dave Ulonska of the Pittsburgh Wallabies
has accepted the position of USAFL Club Development Coach. In late
2000, Dave joined the Philadelphia Crows after never previously playing
football. By 2001, Dave was the Social Coordinator and Assistant
Coach with the Crows and a senior member of the Committee. In
recognition of his efforts, Dave was honored by the USAFL with a Club
Administration award at the 2001 USAFL Nationals.
late 2002 after Dave’s transfer to Pittsburgh, he saw the opportunity
to start his own team and co-founded the Western PA Wallabies. He
became President and led his team to the submission of a team in the 2002
Nationals to join with Cincinnati in Division 2.
January 2003, Dave returned home to Australia, but returned back to
Pittsburgh in February 2004. He was welcomed back and re-claimed
the Club Presidency position, and has since grown the Club with many
initiatives including the development of a Metro League (Western PA
Australian Football Metro League – WPAFML). He also initiated a
name change from the Western PA Wallabies to the Pittsburgh Wallabies to
foster more local support.
Club Development Coach (CDC) will be responsible for assisting and
facilitating the growth of USAFL registered clubs by sharing knowledge,
information, and consolidated USAFL approved materials. The CDC
will provide ongoing assistance to Clubs in their startup endeavors, and
to identify and share best practices from around the League to Clubs.
join us in welcoming Dave aboard!" Mark Wheeler, USAFL President
