The Kid From Moama Scores 10 Votes

  Lachie Schultz

The “Moama Kid”, Fremantle’s dynamic forward Lachie Schultz scored the maximum number of votes for his outstanding game in the 55-point win over the West Coast Eagles in round 3.

His 23-disposals, eight marks, three goal-assists, nine score involvements and two goals were instrumental in the victory.

He also won the Glendinning-Allan medal for best afield in the Western Derby.

Schultz’s performance has catapulted him into second place behind early leader Isaac Heeney (Sydney Swans) in the Carey Bunton medal for the best NSW player in the AFL.

Near neighbour Todd Marshall from 70 kilometres up the Cobb Highway in Deniliquin also had a break-out game, booting five goals in Port Adelaide’s after-the-siren loss to Adelaide in the Showdown.

Mangoplah-CUE’s Elliot Himmelberg also had a stand-out performance for his side Adelaide booting four goals and scoring six votes in the win over Port Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval.

Swans star forward Isaac Heeney still leads way in the Mohr Medal for the leading NSW goalkicker by one goal from Tom Hawkins and Harry Himmelberg.

This is an exclusive – Himmelberg has Bragging Rights over Older Brother, Harry

Mangoplah Cookardinia United Eastlakes player Elliott Himmelberg polled 2 votes for Adelaide in the win over his older brother Harry’s team, the GWS Giants.
The brothers both played at MCUE based just outside Wagga before going to play for ACT club Eastlakes in the NEAFL.
Meanwhile, Geelong power forward Tom Hawkins retains the lead in the Carey-Bunton Medal for the Best NSW Player in the AFL after Round 16.
He leads the award by four votes from Gold Coast co-captain Jarrad Witts (ex-Sydney University).
The former Finley player also has a handy lead in the Coleman Medal race – he is nine goals ahead of West Coast forward Josh Kennedy and Charlie Dixon from Port Adelaide.
The AFL Coaches Award voting – which is used as the basis for the Carey-Bunton Medal – has gone into camera for Rounds 17 and 18.
