Pecking order made clear in Crows clash

Pecking order made clear in Crows clash

Keith put on a powerful performance in the game of the round in round two in the Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara Football League.

The Keith Crows came up against the reigning champions Border Districts and the Crows started strong and never looked back.

The Crows opened up a 25-point lead by half time that could have been bigger if they kicked straighter at goal.

Keith put the game away in the third quarter and ran out solid winners by 46 points.

What a big statement by the Crows who seem to have started the season full of health this year.

William McMurray is back and with the added key recruits in Aaron Young and Cameron Craig the Crows look very good on every line.

The Eagles struggled to stop the Crows on Saturday.

Riley Wilsden kicked four goals and Johnathon Wilson kicked three goals to lead the scorer’s list for the Crows in the victory.

Will Schreiber, Ryan Bartlett and Jacob Graetz were the Crows’ best players.

Mackenzie Bower and Joshua Richards kicked two goals each in a fighting effort for Border Districts.

Chase Bower, Dylan Auciello and Luke Nicholas were the Eagles’ best players.

Bordertown recorded their first victory of the season after they defeated Lucindale by 47 points.

The game was close up until three quarter time before the Roosters put their foot down and ran away in the fourth quarter.

Thomas Whittlesea returned to the Roosters lineup and kicked four goals.

Kyle Emery and Jacob Eats kicked three goals each in the victory as well.

Jaidan Kappler, Joshua Searle and Lachlan Murch were the Roosters’ best players.

Lucindale tried hard all game and Tom Fisher, Jay Schultz and Henry Tregoweth kicked two goals each to help keep Lucindale close for most of the encounter.

Bradley Agnew, Tom Fisher and Justin Watson were Lucindale’s best players.

Penola bagged their first victory of the season after defeating Naracoorte by 38 points.

The Eagles started strong and put in a good solid performance across the four quarters.

To Naracoorte’s credit, the Demons fought back to win the second half after Penola dominated the first.

Brodie Foster (6) and Jak Ryan (4) combined for 10 goals in the victory.

Jordan Galpin, Brodie Foster and Beau Shinnick were the Eagles’ best players.

Matthew Maney kicked four goals for the Demons to be their leading goal kicker in the game.

William Limbert, Matt Willson and Tommy Anderson were Naracoorte’s best players.

Kingston got their first victory of the season in a good team performance against Padthaway.

The Saints upped their defence in the second half to hold the Lions goalless and record the victory.

Todd Lockwood kicked three goals in the victory.

Chris Draper, Jack Harding, Thomas Matsouliadis, Brandon Tapfield and William Watts also were able to kick multiple goals each for the Saints.

Thomas Matsouliadis, William Watts and Mackenzie Slee were the Saints’ best players.

Padthaway had just three goal kickers for the day with Jordan Bell, Jordan Hooper and Danny Juckers kicking two each.

Jacob Fiebiger, Cody Marshall and Danny Juckers were solid contributors for Padthaway across the four quarters.

It was the third game in a row between the two Tigers teams Mundulla and Kybybolite that Mundulla had to overcome a three quarter time deficit to defeat Kybybolite.

In round nine last year, Kybybolite led Mundulla by a goal and went down by 11 points.

Later in the year in round 16, Kybybolite led by four points at three quarter time and Mundulla got up by 12 points.

On Saturday Kybybolite led by 10 points at three quarter time and Mundulla came back again in the fourth quarter and got the victory by 13 points.

Mundulla always has the belief they can overcome anyone at three quarter time.

Billy Wiese kicked three goals in the victory for Mundulla.

James Hinge kicked two goals.

Jake McGrice, Reagan Tink and Nathan Studham were the best players for Mundulla.

Andrew Bradley, Billy Laurie and Stephen Craig each kicked two goals for Kybybolite.

Jack Trengove, Tom Curnow and Angus McKenzie were Kybybolite’s best players in the close encounter.
Round three starts a bit earlier than normal as Kybybolite hosts Naracoorte in their annual Anzac Day clash today.

The Tigers will be fired up to get one back over the archenemy in this contest.

Jack Trengove played his first game for the season last Saturday and he made a big difference to the Tigers team.

Kybybolite will be red-hot favourites in this game and it will be interesting to see how they handle being the hunted.

Aaron Slorach, Matt Wilson and Matthew Maney will need to be at their best to take it up to Kybybolite.

However, I think the Tigers bat too deep and should be too strong for Naracoorte.

Local football returns to Apsley this weekend when Border Districts host Lucindale.

The Eagles have decided to play two home games at Apsley this season and Lucindale is the first team they will welcome there.

The Eagles will be looking to rebound after they suffered their first loss against Keith last weekend.

The Eagles will be confident their stars in the Bower boys, Dylan Schoenmakers and Zac and Joshua Richards will hit form on Saturday.

Lucindale will be planning to stop them.

Jay Schultz and Josh Trembath provide good targets for the Roos as long as they can get the ball down to them.

Bradley Agnew, Tom Fisher and Tom Logan have begun the season well and they will be in the thick of the action on Saturday.

The Eagles go in as favourites and should get across the line in a good contest.

Penola hosts Padthaway and here is a big chance for either team to move to 2-1 with a win on Saturday.

The Eagles will go in with a lot of confidence after their big win last weekend.

The Lions might be feeling a bit flat after they pushed Kingston for most of the first half and just could not get anything going in the second half.

Brodie Foster looks to be in good form for the Eagles after his big haul of goals against Naracoorte.

Brodie has eight goals so far this season.

Jak Ryan looks like he is a good recruit as well after he kicked four goals last weekend.

Jordan Hooper and Danny Juckers have fitted in nicely at Padthaway and will need lots of the ball for the Lions if they are going to win this game.

I think Penola can win this just at home.

The Bordertown oval will be packed on Saturday when the Roosters host their arch-rival Mundulla in a blockbuster contest.

It has been a long time since you could say that both teams are genuine finals contenders as Bordertown has spent nine years out of the finals.

The Roosters have recruited well with Jaidan Kappler the pick of them so far.

The battle of the forward lines looks great with Mundulla’s James Hinge and Darcy King at one end.

Down the other end, Bordertown will have Thomas Whittlesea and Jacob Eats to aim for.

Jake McGrice, Nick Mosey and Dylan Mosey in the midfield vs Kyle Emery, Bryce Damin and Billy Hayes.

The matchups look great and the crowd will be in for a great contest.

Mundulla lifts for these kinds of games and I feel they will sneak over the line in a tough close encounter.

Keith hosts Kingston in another blockbuster and the Crows are currently looking great after their big off-season recruiting has shown promising early signs.

Aaron Young has added a lot to the team.

William McMurray is back as well as the Crows look very solid across the board.

Kingston has been hit by the injury bug early again this season.

Losing James Siviour and Ben Warner to injury has been a big loss to the team.

The Saints found a way to get a win on the board and may have found a quality utility in Brad Sibley to help with depth in the team.

Mackenzie Slee was very solid in round two and the Saints seem to be set with a very solid defensive lineup when they get a full team together.

The Crows will go into this game as very warm favourites at home.

Kingston moves the ball well enough to push the Crows all the way.

Keith should be able to get across the line.
