Sunday night’s slow-burn elimination final classic looked destined for extra time when Leroy George cancelled out Nikola Mileusnic’s breakaway opener.

Enter Berisha, who rescued the match with a piece of brilliance.

The Kosovo international had barely had a moment to savour through a tricky night.

But in the 89th minute he climbed into the air, despite Jordan Elsey’s close attention, to score the winner at AAMI Park from Kosta Barbarouses’ cross.

The result was tough on United and coach Marco Kurz, whose team brought a superb attitude to Melbourne.

“That’s football,” Kurz said.

“You saw the scene … three against one, the cross was good and the quality in the box from the striker is very well.

“It’s a goal you cannot defend.”

Adelaide won the pressure battle in the first half, led by combative German Daniel Adlung and anchorman Isaias.

For their enterprise, United didn’t have a shot on target until Mileusnic’s 57th-minute breakthrough.

Isaias’ raking ball from a free kick put Miluesnic through on goal, with the South n outrunning Rhys Williams to flick past Lawrence Thomas and celebrate in the arms of the rapturous away fans.

Things were looking sour for Victory, with Carl Valeri lucky to stay on the pitch for a studs-up challenge on Ersan Gulum before Berisha and James Troisi engaged in an on-field slanging match.

Then coach Kevin Muscat’s attackers levelled the match.

Barbarouses danced his way down the right, dinking the ball across goal for George to head home.

Victory were finally up and about, with the Dutchman at the heart of two missed chances in the following minutes.

Berisha botched a one-on-one chance after George’s dazzling run through midfield and misjudged a header from Troisi with Victory on top.

As injury time loomed, the 32-year-old wouldn’t be denied, reminding all of his finals pedigree.

He, and Victory, will get another chance to test that record next Saturday night in a semi-final against Sydney FC – a rematch of last year’s grand final.

“We’re ready,” Muscat said.

“It was a battle, it was a fight … we were up for that challenge and we knew it was coming.

“The way we stuck at it right to the death, kept asking questions, is a really positive sign for the group.”


AFL nomads Suns hold out Lions at Gabba

Gold Coast have held out Brisbane to win their AFL derby at the Gabba by five points.There may be no place like home but life on the road is good again for Gold Coast after they held out Brisbane by five points in their AFL derby at the Gabba.

The Lions clawed their way back from a 27-point third-term deficit before Cameron Rayner had a chance to lock up the scores on the stroke of fulltime in front of 16,087 fans on Sunday.

However, he could only manage a behind as the Suns clung on 11.10 (76) to 10.11 (71) – just their third win in nine Queensland derbies at the Gabba.

It was a confidence boost for AFL nomads Gold Coast (3-2 record), who snapped a two-game losing run, including last round’s 80-point thrashing by West Coast.

They are on a three-month road trip due to the Commonwealth Games and won’t host their first game at Carrara until the round-11 clash with Geelong on June 2.

“We had to respond after last week and I think Brisbane did as well. It was a great game down to the last kick, almost a draw. Maybe that would have been fitting,” Suns coach Stuart Dew said.

The Lions were just as desperate to win after last round’s 93-point loss in which they registered a club record-equalling lowest 17 total points against Richmond.

While there was no sign of the Bad News Bears on Sunday, the Lions still have one thing in common with their luckless predecessor – Brisbane (0-5) haven’t won a game this year.

Gold Coast’s Touk Miller (21 touches) was magnificent, earning the Marcus Ashcroft Medal for best on ground.

His running battle with Brisbane’s All-n Dayne Zorko was worth the price of admission alone but it was his desperate dive that spoiled a potential match-winning Jacob Allison goal with two minutes left which summed up his game.

“It may be round five but some of those moments are special and should be celebrated,” Dew said of Miller’s effort.

It took just 16 seconds for Brisbane to draw first blood through Lewis Taylor but back-to-back goals by Darcy MacPherson gave the Suns an 11-point lead by the first break.

The Suns had a 14 point halftime buffer despite MacPherson going down with an ankle injury and blew the deficit out to 27 early in the third.

But forward Eric Hipwood (three goals) and livewire Charlie Cameron (two goals, 18 touches) cut loose to reduce the lead to 15 points by the final break.

And when Hipwood booted his third goal midway through the fourth, the Gold Coast’s lead was just four.

However, it wasn’t to be for the luckless Lions as Rayner’s late attempt sailed wide.

“He is disappointed but he shouldn’t be. We had others who missed easier shots on the night,” Lions coach Chris Fagan said of a shattered Rayner.


Brumbies lose to Jaguares in Super Rugby

The Jaguares have beaten the Brumbies 25-20, capping of a horror weekend for n rugby.Brumbies coach Dan McKellar is left ruing a passive early effort from his side and a missed opportunity to make up ground on their Super Rugby conference rivals after they lost 25-20 to the Jaguares in Canberra.

The Brumbies were the only local side to get a point from the round but on Sunday they blew a chance to make up more ground on the two teams above them in the n conference.

They were always in chase mode after trailing 13-0 early, with captain and lock Sam Carter saying his side was asleep in the first 20 minutes.

The Brumbies got back to within three points by halftime following two tries by fullback Tom Banks.

But their failure to post points when the Jaguares were down to 14 men early in the second half proved costly.

Five-eighth Wharenui Hawera salvaged a bonus point for the Brumbies with a penalty after the siren.

“I thought overall our first 30 minutes was passive. It just wasn’t good enough,” McKellar said.

“The last 10 minutes of the first half we managed to get possession, build pressure, maintain pressure and we scored two tries.”

The Jaguares controlled possession for most of the time winger Emiliano Boffelli was in the sin bin for tackling Henry Speight in the air.

Shortly after he returned, centre Jeronimo de la Fuente crossed and five-eighth Nicolas Sanchez converted to put the Jaguares 10 points ahead.

The Brumbies pulled the deficit back to three with 13 minutes to go when winger Chance Peni escaped three defenders to score and Hawera converted.

But Boffelli atoned for his earlier indiscretion, crossing in the left-hand corner in the 71st minute for the match-clinching score.

“We just didn’t take the opportunities when we had them,” Carter said.

“I think we had four or five cracks and turned it over one or two metres from their tryline.

“We knew they were going to come out pretty hot, pretty passionate and start fast.

“We needed to be better in that first 20 minutes. There were too many mistakes even getting out of our end.

“We didn’t execute when we had to – that was the issue tonight.”

The Jaguares dominated the first half-hour, with centre Matias Orlando crashing over from close range after a patient 18-phase move.

Sanchez converted and kicked two penalties before the Brumbies finally woke up and applied pressure.

Banks crossed in the 35th minute from a Hawera pass and the two combined again on the stroke of halftime when the fullback pounced on a perfectly placed kick from his pivot.


Battered Roos hold off Hawks

An undermanned North Melbourne have held on for a 28-point AFL victory over Hawthorn.North Melbourne coach Brad Scott has hailed the determination of his players after the undermanned Kangaroos held on for a gritty 28-point victory over Hawthorn at Etihad Stadium.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

Up by 57 points at halftime on Sunday, the Kangaroos looked dead on their feet in the third quarter after losing both Shaun Higgins and Ed Vickers-Willis to concussions within the same passage of play.

Hawthorn dominated the third term and threatened an inspired comeback but North did enough to stem the tide and claim a 14.14 (98) to 11.4 (70) win, climbing to third on the AFL ladder.

Spearhead Ben Brown (four goals), Ben Cunnington (30 disposals) and backman Robbie Tarrant (16 marks) played starring roles during North’s dominant start with Hawthorn restricted to just three first-half goals.

The complexion changed within a matter of seconds when North lost both Higgins and Vickers-Willis to concussions.

A motionless Higgins was taken from the ground on a motorised stretcher and sent to hospital after a nasty head collision with Hawthorn’s Ryan Burton.

The 30-year-old, whose wife on Sunday gave birth to their first child, was coherent and in good spirits after the incident.

Vickers-Willis was able to run from the ground after colliding with Harry Morrison but was also ruled out for the final term.

Hawthorn took control in the third quarter with Luke Breust slotting three of his five majors and Liam Shiels adding two more.

But North fought back bravely and secured a hard-fought victory through late goals to Cameron Zurhaar and Jarrad Waite.

“We knew at halftime that Hawthorn are a very dangerous side and that they would respond,” Scott said.

“I thought it showed great character and fight, when we were clearly running out of legs, to be able to not only stem the tide but to push back the other way and score ourselves.”

Hawks coach Alastair Clarkson was pleased with his side’s third-quarter fightback but left to lament a “dreadful” first half.

“At (halftime), we’re staring down the barrel of a 100-point loss … to the credit of the players, their pride kicked in a bit,” he said.

In another blow for the Hawks, Tom Mitchell’s Brownlow Medal hopes could be in jeopardy with a suspected high elbow on North Melbourne ruckman Todd Goldstein certain to face scrutiny.

Tagged by Ben Jacobs, Mitchell’s frustrations boiled over in the second term when he gave away a free kick – and a resulting goal – for the glancing blow on Goldstein behind the play.

Mitchell’s scintillating form had him considered an early Brownlow frontrunner but Jacobs wore him like a glove, restricting the prolific ball-winner to 19 disposals.

North’s Zurhaar was reported for rough conduct after laying a hard bump on David Mirra which sent the Hawks backman hurtling into the boundary fence.

Good intentions abound, especially when it comes to recycling.

But sometimes, such as when your compost bucket on your kitchen bench starts to smell or attract insects, it becomes very tempting to just chuck it all in the bin.

In fact research shows that up to one-third of the rubbish in our bins could have been composted, but instead rots in landfill, creating greenhouse gas emissions.

Luckily someone has made composting easier.

The Chef’n EcoCrock Compost Bin is a dual bucket design for the benchtop.

It features a simple white ceramic outer which goes with pretty much everything, a cute green seedling handle, and an inner plastic bucket with handle making it look as good as it works.

The designers of the EcoCrock have thought through kitchen waste, especially the smell.

The vented lid features a charcoal filter to ensure there are no smells emitted from the food when left for a few days.

And the dimensions ensure ample capacity – 3.3 litres.

While the bin is slim enough to fit into narrow spaces and its oval opening caters for those users who prefer to ‘toss’ their waste rather than place it.

The inner bucket has a handy carrying handle to transport the kitchen waste to the garden compost heap or worm farm.

All pieces can be easily washed and the bin comes with two charcoal filters, with spares available in packs of two.
