Teams put on show in special game

Mundulla and Naracoorte played out a cracking contest that highlighted round 7 of the 2022 Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara Football League on Saturday.

Although the Tigers and Demons went all out in search of glory on the field, the sides joined forces off it to raise money for MND.

Mundulla decided to wear their old Tatiara guernseys in the game and will do the same later in the year when they meet in the last round of the season.

On such a grand occasion, the sides played out a game that was close all day and came down to the smallest winning margin possible.

Mundulla worked hard to open up an 11-point margin at half time, but Naracoorte fought back in the third quarter kicking five goals to one quarter to go in to the last change 12 points ahead.

Mundulla fought the game right out and edged ahead by one point by the time the final siren went.

Jake McGrice, Darcy King and Dylan Mosey were great in the win, helping the Tigers get across the line.

Keenan Jacobs, Matt Willson and Aaron Slorach were the Demons’ best as they nearly helped Naracoorte pull off a great upset.

Border Districts defeated Bordertown in a cliff-hanger game where the lead changed a lot of times.

The Eagles led by 10 points at half time and then Bordertown took control in the third quarter when they kicked five goals to one to open up a 16-point three-quarter time advantage.

The Eagles then fought back in the fourth quarter by kicking five goals to two to snatch the win and keep their season on the up.

Blake Helyer was dominant with five goals for the Eagles, while Mark Quinn, Dylan Auciello and Brayden Denmead were instrumental in the victory.

Jonte Dolling led the Roosters goal kickers with three as Cameron Graetz, Harrison Fromm and Hayden Shuttleworth fought hard all game.

Padthaway had a strong 39-point win against Penola on Saturday.

The Lions started strongly and apart from bad kicking at goal, they were able to come away with a solid win.

Tobin Cox kicked three goals and Nathan McCarthy kicked two goals to help lead the way for Padthaway.

Thomas Cooper, Jack Luckett and Nathan McCarthy were the Lions best players.

Bradley McCarthy and Luke Walker kicked two goals each for the Eagles, while Bradley Bryant and Bradley Merrett were the better players.

Lucindale continued its unbeaten run to start the season by taking care of Kingston by 39 points.

The Roos were strong right from the start and Sam Williams led the way with two goals in the forward lines.

Tom Logan, Lachie Jones and Anthony McCarthy helped the Roos jump over the line with great game play.

Kingston found it hard to find a winning goal kicker all game as they had five single goal kickers in Travis Burns, Jack Harding, Todd Lockwood, Tom Rogers and Tyson Mills.

Thomas Rogers, Jack Tapfield and Jake Wehl tried hard all game for the Saints.

Keith proved far too good for Kybybolite on the weekend as the Crows recorded a 63-point win over the Tigers.

George Johnson kicked five goals, while Billy Wade and Daniel Bibby bagged four goals each to help out.

Daniel Bibby, Billy Wade and Charles Hender were strong contributors in the victory.

Thomas Jennings was the only multiple goal kicker for the Tigers with two goals. Tom Woodard, Callum Masters and Tom Kitschke were the Tigers best players.

There are no KNTFL games this week as there is interleague where the league takes on the Mid South Eastern side at Kongorong.
