Round 5 rolls into second week

Round 5 rolls into second week

Round 5 of the Kowree-Naracoorte season kicked off last Saturday with a split round that will be completed this Saturday.

Only two games were played last weekend as Bordertown and Border Districts recorded victories in strong performances.
Bordertown d Padthaway
Bordertown proved to be too strong for Padthaway by 52 points.

The Roosters performed strongly for four quarters and pulled away after half time to get the four points.

Jacob Eats put in a strong performance in front of the goals by kicking six goals in the victory.

Billy Hayes, Tom Mackenzie and Thomas Whittlesea added two goals each in the win.

Harrison Fromm, Hayden Shuttleworth and Harrison Jolly were Bordertown’s best players.

The Lions had three players Danny Juckers, Jordan Hooper and Cody Marshall who registered two goals each in a fighting effort.

The Lions’ best players were Mitchell Dean, Nathan McCarthy and Jordan Hooper.
Border Districts d Naracoorte
Border Districts returned to the winner’s list after they accounted for Naracoorte by 133 points.

The Eagles produced a percentage-boosting performance in the victory and shared the goals around as nine players recorded at least two goals in the victory.

Dylan Schoenmakers kicked six goals to lead the goal kickers on the ground.

Mark Quinn and Joshua Richards kicked four goals also in strong performances.

Border Districts’ best players were Dylan Schoenmakers, Ben Walter and Mark Quinn.

Naracoorte coach Sam Logan put in a good personal performance in the loss with three goals.

The Demons’ best players were Matt Willson, Tommy Anderson and Blake East.

The rest of round five will be completed this Saturday where the other three games will be played.
Kybybolite v Penola
Kybybolite are at home against Penola and both teams have decent form coming into the contest.

The Tigers have given their fans hope of a finals charge this year after their start to the year.

Kybybolite with a bit of luck could have been undefeated coming into this game.

Coach Jack Kelly has done a great job since taking over and has the Tigers playing great football.

Andrew Bradley and Jack Trengove have been important additions.

Jared Deep, Billy Laurie and Andrew Bradley add class to the team and will have a big say in the Tigers’ fortunes as the year continues.

The Eagles are building nicely as well.

Coach Jayden Eldridge has the young Eagles playing as a team and are a competitive outfit.

Jak Ryan, Beau Shinnick and Bradley Bryant were important players in their victory at Kingston and they must be at their best again if they are going to get across the line over the 


The Tigers seem primed to win this game and will go in as favourites.

The Eagles will be competitive and fight hard, but I’d expect Kybybolite to win by 4-5 goals in a good contest.
Keith v Mundulla
Keith hosts Mundulla in what should be another blockbuster between the two teams.

The Crows were undefeated until they were upset by Lucindale in round 4.

Keith could not find the middle of the goals as they kicked 7.16 in the performance.

The Crows will be looking to kick a bit straighter against a strong defensive Mundulla team.

The Schreiber brothers, Aaron Young, Daniel Bibby and Lewis Hender will be important cogs across the ground for Keith as they look to tackle 


The Tigers are strong across every line.

Jake McGrice, James Hinge, Dylan Mosey and Nick Mosey are usually involved strongly in most wins the Tigers get.

The Tigers have a big belief in their system as was evident in their past two victories with both coming after being behind at three-quarter time.

The week off should have both teams well-rested and ready to attack the ball hard.

Mundulla will be the slight favourites at home but the Crows are a good team and should take it right up to the Tigers on their home ground.
Kingston v Lucindale
Kingston will be searching to get back on the winners list as they are at home against the suddenly in-form Lucindale Roos.

The Roos impressively dispatched the reigning premier Border Districts and then defeated Keith in their last two outings and will be keen to continue the form against the arch-rival Kingston.

Jay Schultz kicked four goals in the Roos’ last win and the Saints will have a hard time matching up with him.

Kingston defender Ben Rogers will likely get the first crack at the job.

The Saints have injury problems at the moment and will be hoping they get some key players back soon.

Campbell Watts, William Watts and Chris Draper have started the year in consistent form for the Saints.

Riley McFairlane, Brad Agnew, Jack Yates and Tom Fisher have started the year in strong form for Lucindale.

Lucindale looks to be in better form and Kingston’s injury list will make it hard for the home team to get across the line.

The Roos will be heavy favourites.
