Crows cause KNT football upset

Aclearer picture of the top five teams in the Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara Football League finals race is starting to show after round 10 provided some good games and a big upset win by Keith over Mundulla.

The Crows started slow in the first quarter, but a big second term saw them fly into half time 11 points ahead.

Mundulla worked hard to be ahead at three quarter time in the topsy-turvy game, but the twists were still to come though as Keith ran over the top in the last quarter to pull off a great win by 11 points.

Lewis Hender and George Johnson kicked three goals each in the victory, while Ryan Bartlett, George Thring and Aydon Innes performed.

William Nankivell kicked four goals but could not push the Tigers home.

Naracoorte continued its great form of late accounting for Kybybolite by 51 points.

The Demons had to work hard for the win as the Tigers hung in during a tightly contested first half.

But Naracoorte opened the game in the second half and took control, with Rory Taggert kicking six of the 11 goals to run out comfortable winners.

Padthaway kept its slim finals chances alive after beating a Border Districts team also trying to make an impact by 20 points.

The Lions were in full control of the game as a big first quarter set them up to come away with the win.

The Eagles ran the game out strong, but the damage was already done in the first three quarters.

Lucindale got back on the winners list as they took care of Penola by 86 points.

The Roos built up a strong lead by half time and never looked back as Josh Trembath kicked seven goals and Hamish Gordon kicked five of his own.

Bradley Bryant, Luke Walker and Bradley Merrett were Penola’s best players on the day.

Kingston moved to second spot on the ladder as the Saints put in a strong performance against Bordertown to win by 35 points.

Most of the Saints damage was done in the third quarter as the home side put through six goals without a miss and held the Roosters goal less during the quarter.

A big clash between Keith and Lucindale headlines round 11, while Penola hosts Naracoorte.

The last time these two teams met the Eagles gave the Demons a thumping.

But this time around the Demons will be stronger and ready to put on a show to get one back on the Eagles.

Naracoorte has found its groove lately and will be hard for the Eagles to contain.
