Youngsters ready to fight for football title

Kybybolite and Keith will play for the Senior Colts Division 1 premiership and the battle shapes up to be an unpredictable affair.

The fourth-placed Crows pulled off a stunning upset over the undefeated minor-premier Kingston in the semi-final.

Little split the pair across the opening three quarters, but Keith rose with a Grand Final berth on the line and prevailed by 12 points.

Jessie Cox and Samuel Gogel combined to kick five majors and will be ones to watch inside the 50-metre arc this weekend, while Rafferty Mcmurray is in strong form in the middle.

Kyby secured their Grand Final ticket under less eventful circumstances with a comfortable 75-point win over Penola.

Brodie Pratter stole the show with eight goals, while Noah Baker, Lachlan Nolan and Max Malone all kicked a pair of majors each.

Keith’s backline could be in for a nightmare trying to stop the goal-kicking quartet after Pratter also booted four in the most recent clash.

Kybybolite has won its last seven games and starts as the short-priced favourite on the big stage.

The Division 2 Senior Colts title will be fought between Bordertown and Naracoorte.

The Roosters defeated Mundulla by 15 points, while the Demons edged ahead of Padthaway Lucindale by four.

Minor-premier Kybybolite appears in a good position to wrap up the Junior Colts Division 1 flag.

After an undefeated home-and-away campaign, Kyby charged into the decider with a 1202-point thumping of Mundulla.

The victor’s forward line was dominated by Charlie Brodie and Remi Brown, who booted eight and six goals respectively.

Further up the ground George Malone made a significant impression and will be keen to continue his side’s impressive form when it matters against Kingston.

The Saints experienced a much tougher ride to the decider with a hard-fought five-point win over Bordertown in the semi-final.

Luke Watson stood out with three majors and J-De Peterson also displayed some fine skills and the pair will be pivotal in Kingston’s premiership hopes.

It will not be a simple task for the Saints after they lost by over 10 goals in the latest encounter with Kyby.

Padthaway Lucindale and Naracoorte will play for the Junior Colts Division 2 trophy and the game will open proceedings 9.30am before the corresponding Senior Colts clash is at 10.50am.

The Junior Colts decider will be played at 12.20pm, while the first bounce of the Senior Colts showpiece match will take place at 2pm.
