Mundulla might too strong for Penola Eagles

Round 10 of the Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara season once again provided some interesting results as the teams push towards making the finals.

Keith and Bordertown played out a classic contest between two teams in the thick of the premiership race.

The Roosters had the early by quarter time.

The Crows turned the game around in the second quarter to get the lead back by halftime.

The contest was close the rest of the way as the Crows and the Roosters combined for 29 goals as the Crows were able to record a 19-point victory.

The Crows move a full game ahead of fourth with the victory and are in control of their destiny as far as the double chance is concerned.

Aaron Young had a big game in the victory with five goals.

Riley Wilsdon was a force for the Crows also with three goals.

Aaron Young, George Johnson and Daniel Bibby were the Crows’ best players.

Jacob Eats fought hard for the Roosters all afternoon as he kicked eight goals.

Harrison Fromm, Sebastian Trenorden and Jacob Eats were the Roosters’ best players.

Border Districts continued their strong form recently when they overcame Kingston by 66 points at Gall Park.

The Eagles opened the game up in the second quarter and never looked troubled as they continued to find momentum towards defending their title.

Mackenzie Bower kicked four goals in a strong performance for the Eagles.

Mark Quinn, Joshua Richards and Zac Richards added three goals each in the victory.

Bart Nolan, Dylan Schoenmakers and Zac Richards were the Eagles’ best players.

Todd Lockwood battled hard all day to lead the Saints goal kicking with two goals.

The Saints’ better players were Jack Armfield, Campbell Watts and William Watts.

Kybybolite won their eighth game in a row after they accounted for Lucindale by 37 points.

The Tigers kept their season humming along and proved to be far too strong for the Roos.

Lucas Schultz kicked four goals in the victory to lead the way.

Tom Woodard, Andrew Bradley and Oscar Clark were the Tigers’ best players.

Lucindale found it tough to score but Josh Trembath led the Roos’ goal kickers with two goals for the game.

Lucindale’s best players were Riley Mcfarlane, Matt Kelsh and Jack Walker.

Mundulla had a big percentage boosting victory against Penola by 90 points.

The Tigers had a strong second quarter to build enough momentum to pull away from the Eagles and maintain their spot in first position on the ladder.

Billy Wiese had a great game with seven goals.

Darcy King and Jake McGrice added four goals apiece in the victory.

Billy Wiese, Darcy King and Elliot Jaeschke were the Tigers’ best players.

Penola found it hard to find a key forward who could kick goals.

The Tigers did not let Penola have a multiple goal kicker for the game, with the Eagles having eight individual goal kickers.

The Eagles’ best players were Jayden Eldridge, Bradley Bryant and Harrison Evans.

Padthaway kept their slim finals hopes alive after they defeated Naracoorte by 31 points.

The game was tight in the first half.

The Lions held a slight three point lead at halftime.

Padthaway took control of the game in the third quarter and ran out solid winners in the end.

Brad Ficken led the scoring for Padthaway with four goals and Danny Juckers added three goals.

The Lions’ best players were Danny Juckers, Brad Ficken and Cody Marshall.

The Demons’ leading scorers were Aaron Slorach with three goals and George White who added two goals.

Zach Boston, Tommy Anderson and Quentin Mitchell tried hard all game for Naracoorte.

A clash of the top of the table headlines round 11.

Kybybolite hosts Mundulla in the battle for the top position.

Both teams have done a great job so far this season to have only recorded one loss.

Mundulla only just beat Kybybolite the last time they faced each other.

This time around Mundulla will be stronger and harder to beat.

I would expect this contest to be a fierce close and low-scoring affair.

I think Mundulla will be a slight favourite to get across the line by a goal or two.

Another top five clash happens when Border Districts host Keith at Apsley.

The Eagles are getting their form back from last year as they work to try and find a place in the top three by the time they get to the finals.

The Crows had a great win last week and also are looking to attack the end of the minor rounds for the double chance.

This game is a genuine 50-50 contest and Border Districts lost their first game at Apsley earlier in the season.

Keith might be the slight favourites heading into the clash but it will not be a surprise if Border Districts records the win.

Bordertown head into their game against Lucindale having lost three of their past four games and looking to find their early season form.

The Roosters have fallen to fifth and have a chance to jump three games clear of the sixth-placed Roos.

Lucindale has a hard run home and needs to find their best form quickly if they want to stay in finals contention.

The Roosters might have too much overall strength around the ground for Lucindale and record a strong win.

Penola will be the favourite to beat Naracoorte on Saturday.

The Eagles look to have a few more solid veterans than Naracoorte do at this stage.

The Demons put on a good performance last weekend but could not do it for four quarters.

The Demons will like their chances to get the win.

They need to find a better spread of goal kickers to get the victory.

The Eagles at home should get across the line as they do have a good spread of players who can kick a number of goals.

Padthaway hosts Kingston and the Lions will be hoping they can bring their best to get the win and keep their finals chances alive.

The season has not gone the way the Saints planned as they have had a lot of injuries to both senior teams this year.

Kingston will be hoping to get a few players back soon so they can finish the season on a strong note.

The Lions at home is always a good challenge and Kingston has struggled there in the past.

The Lions will start favourites because of home-ground advantage.
