WARNERS Bay caused the upset of the 2014 Black Diamond Cup AFL season with a thrilling three-point win over Newcastle City at No 1 Sportsground.
The 12.9 (81) to 11.12 (78) victory to Warners Bay saw them win the Neil 'Plunger' Dunn trophy for the first time and keep their faint finals hopes alive.
The Bulldogs' success saw them move within two wins outside the top four with four games remaining.
They take on ladder leaders Terrigal Avoca at home next Saturday.
Newcastle City's hold on second position is also under threat from Killarney Vale, who they visit next week.
At Hylton Moore Oval, Terrigal Avoca extended their unbeaten start to the season to 11 with a 19.22 (136) to 3.4 (22) over Cardiff.
Cardiff is now fighting for the last finals berth. The team faces a crunch match against Nelson Bay next Saturday.
In the final game Nelson Bay cruised past Singleton Roosters 14.23 (107) to 5.7 (37) at Dick Burwell Oval.
