KAROONDA KNOCKS OFF REIGNING PREMIERS
In one of its biggest wins for sometime, Karoonda has beaten the unbeaten Lameroo at the weekend by 43 points. The Hawks did start well leading 4.2 to 2.1 at quarter time but the Magpies fought back in the second to trail by just eight points at the main break, helped a little by Lameroo’s inaccurate 2.7.

For Karoonda, Josh Ridiger and Justin Jackson was best, with Jarred Graetz kicking seven goals and Corey Knight three. For the reigning Premiers, Ben Greiger and Craig Zerk were best.
At Pinnaroo, Peake gave it to the Supa Roos in the first term, kicking 7.1 to 1.2 and after a even second term still retained a 25 point lead at half time. The homeside came to play in the third term, adding 6.5 to regain the advantage and went on with the job in the last term to win by 22 points. Leith Dabinett and Brad Sheridan were best while for Pinnaroo, Kym Marwick and Jake Hewett were best for the Lions with Kane McDonald kicking five goals.
At Murrayville, Border Downs/Tintinara ended up too good for the homeside, winning by 28 points. It was an even first half, before the Crows edged away in the third term adding 3.1 to 0.3 to have a three goal buffer heading into the last quarter. The Crows ran out the game better in that last term, adding six goals to three to run away with their second win of the season. For the Crows, 2008 Mail Medalist Josh Richardson (3 goals) was best, along with Jack Zacker and Luke Remfry. For Murrayville, Drew Crane kicked seven goals (20 to date in ’09) while Matt Standley and Chris Webb were best.

KAROONDA STARTS WITH A WIN, AS DO LAMEROO & PINNAROO
The Mallee season got underway on Anzac Day with the Karoonda favoured to defeat Peake after some strong off season recruiting. Peake had lost one of their better players in Matt Seyers to Imperials in the River Murray League in the off season, but they came out strong scoring the first three goals of the game and led by 13 points at quarter time. The Magpies got going in the second term adding 4.1 to 2.1, but still trailed at half time. In tough conditions due to the welcome rains, it was a battle to score and the homeside managed to add 2.2 to 1.2 in the third term to go into the last break with a 3 point lead. In the end the Magpies proved too strong in the final term to run out 34 point winners with new recruits Sean Barrett and Justin Jackson (2 goals) in the best players, with veteran Luke Hocking kicking three goals. For the Lions, James Hewett and Todd Hillam played well with James Fiegert kicking three.
At Pinnaroo, the rain had done plenty of good but a little bad as the boundary lines washed away prior to the first bounce. Pinnaroo had the use of the wind in the first term and added 3-4 to 1-1 to lead at quarter time. Murrayville had their turn with the breeze and in while adding 3-1, the Suparoos grabbed two goals into the breeze to main a narrow nine point lead at half time. Neither team scored a goal in the third term, but in the final term Murrayville kicked the first goal to bring the margin to within a kick. Pinnaroo then kicked away adding the next couple to give them the nine point victory. Pinnaroo’s Wade and Ryan Nickolls were their best while for Murrayville Rian Crane and Damien Fenoughty were their best.
At Coonalpyn, the Grand Final re-match saw Lameroo too good for BDT running out winners by 22 points. Lameroo breaking the game open in the second term where they added 4.2 to 2.1. Ruckman Ben Greiger and Mark Benham were named best for the Hawks while for the Crows, last years Mail Medalist Josh Richardson played well as did James Sampson.
