The B’s had a stellar season.  The following shows how they’ve stacked up against Uni Whites’ season stats since 2003:

  • The highest points per game (2.2), equal to the infamous C’s of 2015.
  • The only team to score more points was the A’s in 2003 (48), when they played 22 games.
  • Most goals scored (86).  Next was the A’s in 2003 with 71.
  • Least goals conceded (19).  Next was the A’s in 2016 with 20.
  • 2nd least losses (2), bettered only by the D’s in 2015, and equal to the A’s in 2003.
  • Ellery Shopen scored the 2nd most goals in a season (31). Only Richie Coburn has scored more (34 in the A’s in 2003).

One player who scored some big goals for the B’s this year was Patty Jenko.  He notched up his 50th appearance for the Whites last week in the A’s against Sacred Heart.

Congrats also to Amir Khasanov who racked up his 100th match for the Whites in the final round.  Amir once again showed his versatility by completing his century at left back, after Eddie succumbed to an ankle injury.

Another White has joined the prestigious Century Club.  Congratulations to Simon “Michael” Clarke who capped off his century with a goal against the hapless Blues.

Plaudits also go to Ellery “Richie Jnr” Shopen who has become the Whites leading goal scorer (since 2003).  On his way to knocking Richie “The Don” Coburn from top spot, he hit 9 past Grads Blue.  This beats the previous record of 6 also held by the esteemed Richie, and the dead-to-us Nick “Mercedes” Ward.

Our five wins also produced a goal tally record for the club: 32 goals in a league round smashes our previous best of 22 from May last year.

Our commiserations go to the struggling Blues who helped make all of this possible.  Hopefully they have better luck in div 2 next year.

Close on the heels of Max Demianyk, four more Adelaide Uni students initiated at the Whites in 2015 have notched up their 50th game.   Congrats to B’s stalwart and potty-mouth James Reilly, 2015 JWM winner Damo Holoubek, C’s lovechild Christian Roschi and Bres Academy graduate Dan Antony.

The growing list of recent half-centurions bodes well for the Whites. It’s great to have players sticking with the club and playing with each other season after season.

George Tan‘s mantle as the player to reach 50 matches over the longest period has only lasted a few weeks.  He passes it to inaugural E’s player-manager Ryan Harrowfield, who first played for the Whites in 2007.

Ryan last played for the Whites back in 2012, taking a sabbatical to raise four boys.  He’s over that now though, and is back in White!

Congrats Ryan!

Some long overdue half-centuries were racked up over the past few weeks.  Conan Shao finally hit 50 after 5 years at the club.  However George Tan surely takes the prize for the longest time to get to 50: his first game with the Whites was back in 2009.  George has played in all five Whites sides, and scored the first ever goal for the E’s in their opening match this year.

On the other end of the spectrum Max Demianyk will hit 50 if he plays against Pembroke this week, after joining the club in 2015.

Belated congratulations to Alan Evans, Ollie Smith and John Wilson who all hit their 100th game in the last few weeks.  Ollie marked his 100 with his first goal for the A’s in a 5-2 route of Unley. Alan’s was celebrated in the 6-1 derby win over Grads Reds.  John’s was unfortunately played against old friends in the south Parklands.

Meanwhile, Ian Hendrie marked his 50th match for the Whites with a hat trick over Unley in round 2.

And in case I forget, the other Ian will get to his 50 this week against Mercedes.
