KNT split round wraps up with a bang

Round five of the Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara split round concluded Saturday when the remaining three games of the round were played.

Mundulla proved too strong for Keith in the game of the day.

The Tigers started strong in the first quarter and the Crows were playing from behind the rest of the game.

The Crows did bounce back in the second quarter to cut the margin back to 14 points by halftime.

Mundulla again stretched the margin out in the third quarter and went on to record the victory by 25 points.

Darcy King had a day out for the Tigers with five goals.

Dylan Mosey and William Nankivell were great contributors also in the victory as well with two goals each.

Darcy King, Nathan Studham and Jacob Grosser were Mundulla’s best players.

Will Schreiber played a great game for the Crows to be named best and kick three goals.

George Johnson and Riley Wilsdon also had strong performances for Keith.

Kybybolite continued their great run of form to start the season as they accounted for Penola by 61 points.

The Tigers won their third game in a row as they got on top of the Eagles early and did not look back.

Stephen Craig and Charlie Hillier kicked three goals each in the victory.

Jared Deep, Oscar Clark and Joseph Schultz were Kybybolite’s best players.

Garret Ha led Penola’s goal-kicking list with two goals.

The Eagles’ best players were Harrison Evans, Jayden Eldridge and Jordan Galpin.

Lucindale recorded a solid victory over Kingston in the battle for the Wilks Cup.

The game was close until half time as both teams played some good football.

The Roos used a third quarter push to break the game open and by the end of the contest they had recorded a 57 point victory.

Jay Schulz kicked four goals in the victory for Lucindale. Tom Fisher, Luke May and Luke Kelsh were very good in the victory for the Roos.

Tyler Baker kicked three goals in a fighting effort for Kingston.

Jed Castley, Orestis Gambranis and Hagan Wright were Kingston’s best players.


The season continues this week as round six brings a lot of great contests again.

Padthaway hosts Border Districts and both teams will know this is a must win contest as the loser of this game will start to fall behind in the race to stay in touch with the top five.

The Lions have had a hard time in the last two games as they faced red-hot teams in Bordertown and Kybybolite and they have struggled to put together four quarters of solid football against the best teams.

Jordan Hooper, Mitchell Minns and Danny Juckers will be the keys to taking it up to the Eagles in this contest.

They will need to win lots of the ball and have it mostly in their front half to set up scoring chances.

The Eagles are strong down back.

Dylan Auciello holds down the “general” role for Border Districts and leads the way when rebounding the ball out of danger.

The Eagles should have too much firepower for the Lions.

Dylan Schoenmakers, Mark Quinn, Zac Richards and Mackenzie Bower look set to have big games against the Lions.

Penola welcomes Bordertown to McCorquindale Park on Saturday as the Eagles will be out to stop the Roosters from recording another victory.

The Roosters have won four games in a row after going down in round one.

Jacob Eats has been huge during the run of victories and especially in the past two games as he has kicked 14 goals in his last two outings.

The Eagles will be thinking long and hard about how to stop the supply to the Roosters forwards.

Thomas Whittlesea, Jaidan Kappler, Harrison Fromm and Troy Blackwell have been in good recent form for the Roosters.

Penola has been playing some good football recently as well.

Jayden Eldridge, Harrison Evans, Jordan Galpin, Bradley Merrett and Brad Bryant are in good form.

The difference between the two teams is the Roosters have more depth and that will be the difference in the game.

Kingston takes the challenging trip to Kybybolite to try and stop the Tigers’ winning momentum.

The Saints’ start to the season has not been a good one as they have had lots of team changes from week to week due to injuries or work commitments and the results have shown it so far.

The Saints have just one victory for the year so far and will be hoping they get some players back soon to try and see if they can climb up the ladder.

Kybybolite has been playing great football.

Jack Kelly has led the charge as coach and getting Andrew Bradley and Jack Trengove back to the club has helped with the early season charge.

Jared Deep has been a great pickup so far.

Jared has proven to be consistent and a goal-kicker so far this season.

The Saints will need to get big efforts from the Watts boys, Hagan Wright and Thomas Matsouliadis if they are going to match it with the Tigers midfield.

The Tigers will start favourites at home and will like their chances to get over the Saints.

Naracoorte hosts Keith and it will be the Crows who will be searching to bounce back after going down the previous two rounds in big clashes.

The Demons are on the rebuild and everyone knows that.

The Demons are getting games into their younger players and the goal is to be set up for the coming years.

Keith on the other hand is focused on this year and challenging for the premiership.

The Crows will likely win this game and need it for their confidence going forward.

Coach Lewis Hender will be pushing that point to the players all week.

The Crows players such as Will Schreiber, Seb Schreiber, Daniel Bibby and William McMurray will be the driving force to create shots on goal in the contest.

Keith will get the win comfortably, but it will be good to see if the Demons can give their fans some joy during the game by putting some goals on the board.

Mundulla and Lucindale will be the game of the day.

The Tigers are once again in the thick of the action for another season and Lucindale is back up near the top of the ladder after missing the finals last season.

Darcy King is back and healthy again for the Tigers.

Jake McGrice, Nick Mosey, Dylan Mosey and Nathan Studham are always dangerous when they have the ball.

Lucindale also gets great service from their players.

Jay Schulz has been a good addition to the team, adding a strong focal point.

Tom Fisher, Will Graetz and Bradley Agnew are in great form at the moment.

This should be a cracking game that looks like it will go either way.

Mundulla at home is always tough and the Tigers will be looking to protect it as the favourite.
