Round Five Football Preview 20-5-2017
Karoonda V Pinnaroo
Karoonda played the mighty Lameroo Hawks last week and came away winners by 17 points. Karoonda had plenty of run and carry to their main man up forward Adam Proud, who booted seven goals and now has 15 to his name in the past 3 weeks, Dylan Fry and Jarrad Woodward hit the scoreboard as well. Tyler Wagner and Rupert Benson were the major ball winners for the Magpies.Pinnaroo had a solid four quarter effort against last weeks ladder leader Peake and gave them a workout coming away winners by 48 points. Ryan Nickolls bagged four with Jed Villis had three to his name. Shannon and Tyson Jenner were up and about with Micah Vanloon and Rory O’Driscoll was had around the contest.Pinnaroo looked impressive and will continue on their winning way.
Murrayville V LamerooMurrayville came up against a strong BDT side and went down by 56 points. Brad Collins and Jake Venning bagged two each for the dogs. Was great to see Harrison Brown getting plenty of the ball while Ben Mader and Chris Pressor also had good games.Lameroo would be disappointed with their loss to Karoonda last week. Great to see Josh Ridgway bag four goals and Travis Brown chipped in with a couple. Very pleasing to see an old mate of mine Andrew ‘Warno’ Warnest donning the boots for the Hawks, he is a gun. Hayden Thorpe showing he is still on top of his game along with Harrison Fromm.Lameroo will bounce back in this game and take the pointsPeake V BDT
Peake came up against a red hot Pinnaroo on the weekend and although Peake had a few players out, they got beaten around the ground. Cody Mclean and Jamie Conlon bagged a couple each, and giving them first look at the ball was big man Pat Gabb who was dominant in the ruck. Lachy Wilson is also having a consistant year. I think Peake will get a couple back this week but will still have some under injury clouds.BDT had a good win against the Murrayville outfit, scoring quite consistently in each quarter. Patrick Barrett, Lachy Richardson and Josh Richardson all bagged four for the Crows, while Jarrad Brock has come back to some of his best form, Clint Richardson always shows some class and Chad Kennett is up and about.
This will be a tight encounter but Peake will bounce back this week

Round Four Preview 13-5-2017
Lameroo V Karoonda
Lameroo hit the flying Roos last week and got beaten by a large margin. 36 scoring shots to 11 says a lot and if Pinnaroo had kicked straight it could have been more damaging for the scoreline. Jayden Barrett, William Werner, Tom Bell and Seth Nassif rounded out the Hawks goal kickers with Tyson Collins and Brad Wakefield getting plenty of the ball.Karoonda just went down to BDT last week, they had a ripping third quarter to get them to within three points but BDT pulled away in the last quarter. Adam Proud booted three and Hugh Johnson-Schroeder kicked two for the Magpies. Rupert Benson and the Coach Corey Knight were the ball magnets for Karoonda.I think it will be close game and Karoonda will just get over the line at home
Pinnaroo V PeakePinnaroo had a convincing win over Lameroo last week, Jack Kenny is having a great year and had a day out with four goals, Lachy Pye and Rory O’Driscoll and Tyson Jenner combined with six between them, and the goal kicking list goes on for the Roos. Peake had another good win, the first quarter was close but after all downhill for the Lions, “Mr Versatile” Jamie Conlon and Darren Hare bagged three each, while the Big man Pat Gabb was unstoppable around the ground and so was Lachy Wilson.This will be a ripper of a game and I’m going with Peake in a tight one.
BDT V Murrayville
BDT had a good win over the Magpies last week, Josh Richardson was in mail medal form with three goals and a best on ground, while Brett Todd and Paddy Barrett were also major ball winners.Murrayville had a tough day at Peake, they showed a bit of zing in the first quarter but couldn’t get their hands on the ball after that. Charlie Ralli was good in front of goal with three majors, while Brad Collins and Harrison Brown tried hard for the Dogs.
Going for BDT who will win comfortably.

Football Preview - May 6, 2017
In what was another great round of football in the Mallee, Peake, Lameroo and Pinnaroo were on the winners list.
Round three looks set to be another great round of football, with three interesting matches on the cards.
Border Downs-Tintinara v Karoonda
Karoonda came up against a red hot Peake Lions last weekend and it was a good hit out for the first half but Peake were too good in the end.
Karoonda do have some good run and were very competitive; Jordan Hentschke was great all day for the Pies and Adam Proud bagged five goals in a great effort.
Border Downs-Tintinara went head-to-head with Lameroo and wasn’t this game a ripper.
It was tight at after every break and the last quarter brought a change in lead and saw Lameroo take the points.
Lachy Richardson and Josh Keller booted two each for the Crows while fig man Hayden Schilling was best for BDT.
This game could be closer than we think but BDT look set to rebound from last week.
Peake v Murrayville
Murrayville came up against the raging Roos on the weekend and Pinnaroo got done by a big margin.
Brad Collins and Michael Philips tried hard for the Dogs, while Charlie Ralli scored a couple in a low score line for Murrayville.
Peake travelled to Karoonda and it was a good game for most of it with Peake pulling away in the last quarter to keep top spot.
Gabe Phillips was off the leash bagging eight goals in a best on ground performance and Jamie Conlon snagged five as well.
Lachie Wilson continues his strong form and his influence around the ball was great.
Peake should win this clash by a few goals.
Lameroo v Pinnaroo
Pinnaroo are up and about and showed Murrayville that they are setting their sights on September action.
They kicked 25 goals in total with Ryan Nickolls leading the way with six, and Lachy Pye with five.
Jack Kenny was best on ground and Shannon and Tyson Jenner were creating plenty of run as they do.
Lameroo played BDT and came away with a win which was great to see, a tight game all day but the hawks got the points.
Seth Nassif bagged a couple and was best on ground, Andy Hunt got in on the scoring action and was great to see young Billy McNeilly and Brad Wakefield among the best for the Hawks again.
This will be a cracker but Lameroo should win what could be a tight match.

Football Preview 29-4-2017
The Nerves have settled and the Mallee A Grade Football teams have their first game for 2017 under their belt. Good luck to all teams this week.
BDT V Lameroo
BDT came up against Pinnaroo last week with the opening quarter looking quite even and then the scoreboard stayed even across the day with BDT coming up winners with a 9 point win.
BDT had a number of multiple goal scorers while Pinnaroo had Ryan Nickolls bagging three. Lachy McDonald and Paddy Barrett were best for the Crows and Calum Tonkin and Rory O’Driscoll were best for the Super Roos.
Lameroo headed to the Lions den last week and seem to start a little slow giving Peake the opportunity to get a few goals up early. It wasn’t until the third quarter were Lameroo piled on some goals in quick succession to bring them to just on six goals. Peake ended up being too good and taking the points. Peake had some players who scored heavily with Wade Saunders four, Jamie Conlon four, and Gabe Phillips three, Jamie Conlon was best on for the Lions. Josh Ridgway bagged three for the hawks and was good to see Billy McNeilly in good nick and also Big Brad Wakefield, he is looking fit and set to make an impact for the Hawks this year.
This Week BDT take on the Lameroo Hawks and this game always seems to be a big encounter year in year out. I will back BDT in a tight one
Murrayvile V Pinnaroo
Murrayville took on the mighty Magpies last week and Karoonda really gave them a touch up winning by 86 points.
Thomas Watts and Harrison Brown bagged three each for the Dogs, while for the Magpies Adam Proud bagged eight, Lachy Hentschke doug deep with five. Nicholas Roennfeldt was inspiring along with Harry Brown for the Dogs, and is great to see Josh Rosenzweig leading the way for the Maggies.
Pinnaroo are looking very competitive this year and are strengthened with Ryan Nickolls heading up their forward line. Young guns Rory O’Driscoll and Alex Keough are always in tight and the Jenner boys are great play makers creating opportunities all over the ground.
Pinnaroo will take the points in this battle against the Dogs.
Peake V Karoonda
Both Peake and Karoonda coming off good solid wins last week and both teams will be eager to stay on top of the ladder and not give in too early in the season.
It seems Peake played well last week but it was in patches and against good teams you really have to give a four quarter effort. I think the first game of the year for everyone is challenging, match fitness is something that will become easier a few games in so we really can’t be too critical early on.
Karoonda are probably in the same boat with match fitness but good to see them post a 25 goal plus scoreline which means they have a structure sorted, that structure may be tested this week against a quality outfit in the Peake Lions.
think Peake will continue on their winning ways.

Football Preview 22-4-2017
The 2017 Mallee Football League season is upon us again with lots of player movement as usual over the off season. Good Luck to all teams in the first round.
Karoonda V Murrayville
Both teams coming off a disappointing year again last year, I can only imagine they both want to get off to a cracker start to the year and come away with a win in round 1. Karoonda have some experience in local star and player coach returning to the magies Corey Knight, he will bring an enthusiastic list of additions to the club which I think will put them in good stead for a solid year.
Murrayville have lost a few players but have gained some as well, Brad Collins, Scott Hannam and Jack Weller to name a few.
I think Karoonda will get the win
Pinnaroo V BDT
Pinnaroo had a reasonable year last year and will gain a couple of ins this year including Ryan Nickolls. They did seem to play good patches of footy last year so hopefully they can build on last year.
BDT are regular finals attendees and capitalized again in the GF again last year. They have also lost a few payers including Ben Prater and Tassie Hawthorne, but with their inclusions adding to their already accomplished list of players I see them having another competitive year.
BDT will be too strong and start the year off with a win.
Lameroo V Peake
Peake had a good season again last year and were unlucky to get beaten in the GF last year. No outs listed and a few gains including Darren Hare and Mark Boothy along with Max Sparks
Lameroo coming off another solid year last year have also been bolstered by some good recruits in Ben Quinn and Big man Brad Wakefield.
A few big outs include Ben Woodall, Ben Greiger and Fraser Sampson but one thing with Lameroo is their star local lads in Matt and Josh Ridgeway and a few others will always give 100% so they’re always a challenge.
Peake to get over the line
