Upsets and big scores sweep footy round

Round Three of the Kowree Naracoorte-Tatiara Football League threw up some interesting results and upsets.

The round kicked off with Kybybolite playing Naracoorte in an Anzac Day game.

The Tigers showed a lot of strength in the victory by winning by 193 points in the contest.

The Tigers had a huge percentage-boosting victory.

Stephen Craig (10) and Charlie Hillier (8) combined to kick 18 goals between them in the strong win.

William Shepherd, Stephen Craig and Jared Deep were instrumental in the victory to be named in the top three best for Kybybolite.

Naracoorte struggled for most of the game and could only score one goal in the game.

Brodie Pratter was able to kick the Demon’s only goal.

The Demons need to keep the youth coming through as they have strong Colts teams to build from.

Lucindale caused a big upset when they defeated Border Districts at Apsley on Saturday.

Border Districts had a good first quarter and did not take advantage of the extra five scoring shots in the first quarter to create a bigger quarter-time lead.

Lucindale turned it around in the second quarter to lead at half-time.

The second half was even between the two teams and it was the visiting Roos side that was able to pull away for an impressive 17-point victory in the end.

Riley McFarlane kicked three goals in the victory and was helped out by Riley Clarke, Samuel Pitt and Joshua Smith who added two goals each in the victory.

Riley Mcfarlane, Thomas Gould and Jack Yates Were Lucindale’s best players.

Border Districts got solid contributions in front of the goals from Mackenzie Bower who kicked four goals and two goals from Isaac Hewson.

Joshua Richards, Mackenzie Bower and Sam Pridham were the Eagles’ best players.

The game was close across the four quarters as both teams went hard at each other.

The Roosters were able to edge ahead and keep the lead until the final siren.

Thomas Whittlesea kicked three goals and Billy Hayes added two goals in the victory.

Round four preview

Mundulla hosts Border Districts in a game where both teams are coming off a loss.

Mundulla lost to Bordertown in a tight game while the Eagles lost to Lucindale in a surprise result.

Both teams will be keen to bounce back this week.

Mundulla seem to have a slight edge in this one at home and are probably playing the better football at the minute.

Border Districts cannot be counted out and did win twice at Mundulla last year.

Mundulla to get home by a goal.

Bordertown heads into their match-up with Naracoorte as red-hot favourites.

The Roosters defeated Mundulla on the weekend and will be looking to continue that winning form over Naracoorte.

The Demons kicked one goal last weekend, so they will be looking to put scoreboard pressure on in a much-improved effort.

Bordertown look far too strong at the minute and I can see Thomas Whittlesea or Jacob Eats kicking a big bag of goals for the Roosters.

Padthaway is at home to Kybybolite and this is an interesting game.

The Lions and the Tigers are 2-1 so far this year and this shapes up as a good test to see where both clubs are at.

Kybybolite coach Jack Kelly has the Tigers sitting nicely and will be looking towards players such as Jack Trengove and Andrew Bradley to lead the team towards another victory.

The Lions will have plans to stop their influence.

The Tigers will start as slight favourites.

Kingston is at home against Penola and the Saints have suffered two losses in a row and have injury concerns at the moment.

The Eagles could have been 2-1 if they had a bit of luck on Saturday.

The Saints will enjoy being on their home deck and should be confident of a turnaround to square the season record at 2-2.

The Saints will be favourites to find a way to get the win at home.

Lucindale is coming off an upset win against Border Districts and faces the red-hot Keith Crows on Saturday.

The Roos had a strong team win against the reigning KNT premier Border Districts.

The Crows are looking more and more like the team to beat this season.

Especially, if they can stay healthy and keep their best team on the oval.

Aaron Young and Cameron Craig have added strength and experience to the Crows team and look complete across each line.

I think the Crows will get across the line over a tough Lucindale team by a few goals.
