MT BURR REVERSE SEMI LOSS TO WIN FLAG
Terry Willoughby - September 11, 2016
Kalangadoo won a wind assisted second semi-final two weeks ago and looked set to repeat the win early on when they led Mt Burr by 9 pts at quarter-time. Both teams had chances going forward but Kalangadoo looked more settled and kicked truly. Matt Berkefeld was influential for the Magpies and Lowe and Pratt were solid on the backline. Ty Stanley had started well for Mt Burr but many others took time to warm-up.
Mt Burr changed up a gear in the second term and with tall Henry Crauford giving drive and with small-men Dylan Ridley and coach Tomas Renzi slipping in for goals the Mozzies raced to the lead. Using the ball more efficiently Mt Burr rattled on seven goals amid a swag of chances whilst Kalangadoo blundered and stumbled under the onslaught with just two goals to be in serious trouble at half-time, trailing by 23 points. Mt Burr had all the momentum heading into the third quarter and weren’t about to let it slip. Dylan Ridley continued to be a menace on the forward line for the Mozzies with Mitch Gordon and Zac Watson bobbing all over the place. Mt Burr went further ahead in the quarter with four goals to just two from Kalangadoo who looked a spent force at the last change with the Mozzies 33 points in front. Mt Burr’s Tyler Stanley continued to play well and Kalangadoo were unable to find a winning forward as the Mozzies again had the bulk of forward entries and should have won by more but for sloppy goal-kicking.
Best for Mt Burr were Tyler Stanley, tall Henry Crauford, Mitch Gordon, unstoppable Dylan Ridley who booted six goals, helmeted Zac Watson and Cory Gamble. It was a dirty day for Kalangadoo who won the second semi but they don’t payout for earlier wins. The Magpie’s best were Matt Berkefeld, Lowe, Pratt, Lachy Jones, Jack Casey and Fatchen. Mt Burr, still the benchmark in MSE football with a 42 point win.

MT BURR TOO GOOD FOR TANT IN PRELIM FINAL
Terry Willoughby - September 5, 2016
Mt Burr, always in the top two throughout the season disposed of Tantanoola after an even first quarter which had the teams separated by just one point. Mt Burr were quick to assert their authority on the game and with talented youngster Zac Watson leading the way the Mozzies slammed on seven goals to just two in reply from Tant and hold a match-winning lead of 28 points at the long break. Tall men Jake Dowdy and Henry Crauford were also very good for Mt Burr and Tant were unable to counter their height advantage.
With heavy showers falling almost every quarter like a reliable bus service the Mozzies pressed home their advantage with another four goals whilst keeping Tantanoola to a single point. All the life had been squeezed out of the game as Mt Burr led by 53 points with a quarter to play. Watson continued a thorn in Tant’s side and he had strong support from Ty Stanley, Josh Fiebig with Dowdy finishing their good work. The last quarter was something of a formality with both teams goaling twice but Tantanoola had never threatened after quarter-time. The two top teams throughout the season have been Kalangadoo and Mt Burr by a considerable margin and they will again do battle in next week’s Grand Final. Mt Burr’s better players handled the slippery conditions much better and Tant’s major players were never a factor. Best for the Mozzies were Zac Watson, Ty Stanley, Fiebig, Jake Dowdy with five goals and Mitch Gordon. Tant’s battlers included Ricky Hay, Ty McGrath, Dylan Tincknell and Jordan Williams.
Best: Mt Burr - Z. Watson, T. Stanley, J. Fiebig, J. Dowdy, M. Gordon, P. Guyett. Tantanoola - R. Hay, T. McGrath, D. Tincknell, J. Williams, A. Gregory, B. Chant. Goals: Mt Burr - J. Dowdy 5, H.

KALANGADOO CRUSH MT BURR WITH POWERFUL LAST QUARTER BURST
By Terry Willoughby - August 29, 2016
Being held scoreless in the first quarter isn’t quite the way you expect to win in finals football but nobody seemed to tell Kalangadoo that! Playing in gale force winds meant the football was going to be severely hampered so the toss of the coin was vital and it was Mt Burr who had first use of the gale. Mt Burr had the dominant ruckman in Henry Crauford and classy on-baller in Clint Gallio in fine form but the Kalangadoo defence held up strongly and gave the Mozzie forwards hard time. The ball movement was hardly scientific and the just bomb it forward approach didn’t help as Mt Burr only led by 21 points despite nearly all the play being at one end.
Kalangadoo hadn’t seemed to take all that much notice and the second quarter was pretty much the same although Mt Burr managed to scramble the play to the non-scoring end for a behind. Defenders Lowe and Ousey cut off most Mt Burr attacks whilst medallist Jack Casey provided drive around the packs along with Lachy Jones and Matt Berkefeld as Kalangadoo took a narrow two point lead at half- time. Play was concentrated at one end which didn’t make for much of a spectacle for fans with players still opting for the kick and hope method. The Magpie defence again restricted the Mt Burr forwards who must have surely wished for better delivery, especially when Kalangadoo somehow strung some passages of play together and scored the two most valuable goals of the day against the gale. Mt Burr were now precariously placed with only a 3 point lead to defend against the howling gale. Kalangadoo goaled early in the last quarter to hit the front and that opened the flood-gates for the Magpies who dominated from there-on and booted another 6 goals to win by 45 points and jump straight to the Grand Final. Powerful winds had again proved the biggest inhibitor to good football. Kalangadoo’s better players were Jones, Mitch Lowe, Jack Casey, Matt Berkefeld and Braiden Ousey. Mt Burr now have to reach the Grand Final the difficult way. Their best were Henry Crauford, clearly best on ground, Josh Wallis, Andrew Ridley, Clint Gallio and Brodie Hennink.

PORT MACDONNELL BOW OUT OF AFTER POOR SECOND HALF
Terry Willoughby - August 22, 2016
Conditions looked good from outside the fence at Kalangadoo but fast flowing football would be difficult with variable heavy patches on the ground. The first quarter began with some early aggro as both teams sought mastery over the other. Port Mac settled better and added four goals to lead by 21 points. Defences were on top at both ends and neither team had a match-winning forward. Tant made inroads into Port Mac’s lead but couldn’t stop the Demon’s from scoring and still trailed by 12 points at half-time. Matt Roscow, Will MacDonald and rugged Ben O’Dine were doing well for Port Mac but they broke down constantly near goal where Radley and Hudson were resolute for Tantanoola.
Tant must have been revved up at the long break because they looked more positive and although only goaling once they held Port Mac to just four behinds in the crucial third quarter and now trailed by just eight points. The last quarter was almost played exclusively on Tantanoola’s forward line with on-ballers Tom Holmes and Smith constantly stopping Port Mac. Tant had many scoring chances but were wasteful in adding two goals from 11 shots but it was enough as Port Mac failed to score at all. Tant went on to win by 13 points and eliminate Port Mac from the race. Best for Tantanoola were Lane, Caleb Williams, Tom Holmes, Radley, Hudson and Smith. Port mac’s better players were Roscow, MacDonald, O’Dine, Nicholas Driver and Mark Smith but you can’t win finals when don’t kick goals in the second-half.

ROUND 18 REPORT
August 15, 2016 - by Terry Willoughby
The final round of football was a curious mix of games with all the top four teams being opposed to one another and four of the bottom five having a bit of fluffy football. The top four has been virtually settled since round five so it was odd to see them opposed in this round but the season was set well before. Nangwarry was again belted and finish the season winless with an average losing margin of about 220 points. You can only admire the fortitude of the players who resolutely turned out each week in the knowledge that they would always be on the receiving end. Well done them. But what happens next??
ROBE 34-27 231 CLOBBERED NANGWARRY 1-6 12
Kongorong led throughout the first half against Glencoe, albeit narrowly. The Murphies snapped into action at the start of the second half and piled on six goals while Kongorong looked on and raced to a 25 point lead at three quarter-time. Kongorong, who haven’t finished games too well all season, mounted a charge in the last quarter and bit hard into the Glencoe lead, adding six goals to two from Glencoe and draw level in the closing stages to end a disappointing season for both.
KONGORONG 13-13 91 DREW WITH GLENCOE 13-13 91
Tantanoola had a chance to put their premiership credentials on show against Kalangadoo but they were never really in the hunt. The Magpies had much more of the play in the 1st quarter with Reeves and Lachy Jones active on the forward line and Stone across the mid-field. Tant were struggling to stay in touch with on-ballers Tom Holmes and Jack Dawe working hard with little support and Kalangadoo went to the main break with a 27 point lead. The third quarter followed a similar pattern as Kalangadoo went further ahead but squandered a chance to crush Tant when added they booted three goals from ten scoring shots. Jack Casey at half-forward was too good for the Tant defenders as Kalangadoo raced to a 44 point lead. Tant outscored Kalangadoo narrowly in the last qtr but never threatened as Kalangadoo won comfortably by 37 points. Reeves with five and Jones with four were good up forward for Kalangadoo but Jack Casey was best. Holmes, Dawe and Lyndon Smith battled hard for Tantanoola.
KALANGADOO 12-16 88 TOO GOOD, TANTANOOLA 7-9 51
Heavy conditions meant the clash between Port MacDonnell and Mt Burr was going to be a bit of a slog and so it proved. Port Mac made most of the conditions early and established a valuable 18 point lead at quarter time with star bigman Wil MacDonald leading the way. Mt Burr hit back strongly before half-time but Port Mac had wasted opportunities and only led by two points. The Mt Burr defence held together by Brodie Hennink had done well to keep Port Mac out. The Demons started the second half positively with MacDonald and McElroy rucking and marking strongly to put Port Mac 20 points ahead at three quarter-time. Mt Burr struggled to find a winning forward and had eight different goal-kickers. Port Mac battled hard in the last quarter and went on to win by 16 points and boost their chances in next week’s first semi-final. Best for Port Mac were MacDonald, Ben McGregor, Creek, Justin Bromley and McElroy. Mt Burr, disappointingly lost top spot, were best served by Henry Crauford, Fiebig, Hennink and Schultz.

ONE SIDED FOOTBALL IN ROUND 17
August 8, 2016 - by Terry Willoughby
Three of the four games were won by margins of 147 points and greater with the hapless Nangwarry again on the end of the biggest thrashing, this time at the hands of Port MacDonnell by 231 points. Tantanoola walloped Glencoe, who have endured a disastrous year, by 147 points with jack Gregory booting 11 goals. Kalangadoo disposed of an insipid Robe by 169 points and this emphasises the gulf in the league with the top four teams scarcely challenged by those below them.
Flat track bullies Hatherleigh displayed their best form when all was lost and stretched league leader Mt Burr to the limit before going down by eight points. Where was this form when required earlier on? It is all well and good to smash Nangwarry by 55 goals but credible losses don’t get you into the finals and this has been a Hatherleigh trait for some time. The defences of both teams were loose, hence the high scores of both with nine individual goal-kickers. Tom Renzi kicked eight for Mt Burr and Will Whitty must have thought all his birthdays arrived at once when he booted four for Mt Burr. Josh Wight gathered six and Jack Sullivan three for Hatherleigh.

NO CHANGES TO THE TOP ORDER
Terry Willoughby - July 31, 2016
Top four teams Port MacDonnell and Kalangadoo clashed at the bay and this was an opportunity for Port Mac to regain some respect in the premiership race. Scoring was difficult for both sides with conditions favouring defenders. Port Mac’s big guns in Will MacDonald and Daron Mcelroy were doing well and they helped their team to a narrow lead at quarter time. Kalangadoo quickly made inroads into the lead in the second term with defenders Williams and Hunter shutting down the Port Mac forwards. Matt Berkefeld and coach Ben Mules also had a hand in the play as the Magpies went to the long break with an 11 point lead. Port Mac needed a spark and again it was MacDonald and Mcelroy who worked tirelessly with valuable help from Matt Roscow and Wade Chant. Port Mac kept Kalangadoo to just two points in the third stanza whilst adding four goals and went to three quarter-time with a 13 point lead which was the biggest margin of the game but now they had to defend it. Kalangadoo again came hard in the last term with unusual goal sources in Pratt and Reeves coming to the fore. Port Mac were hanging on tenaciously but Kalangadoo now had their tails up and added six goals to finish over the top of the Bay boys to win by 12 points. Jack Casey, Pratt and Reeves each kicked 3 goals and better players for Kalangadoo were Williams, Berkefeld, Ben Mules, Hunter and Reynolds. Wil MacDonald, McElroy, Matt Roscow, Byrne and Chant were best for Port Mac.
KALANGADOO 12-7 79 OVER A BATTLING PORT MACDONNELL 10-7 67
In another no bearing game Robe held on to defeat Glencoe by 6 points after having led from the start. The game hardly rose to any standard and the Roosters led by 15 points at quarter-time after having kept Glencoe scoreless. Glencoe closed the gap in the second quarter but Robe still held a lead of seven points at the start of the second half. They piled on six goals to four in the most productive term of the game and their lead blew out to 23 points at three- quarter time. Glencoe peppered the goals in the last term as Robe fell away but inaccuracy plagued them with only two goals from nine scoring shots leaving them six points adrift at the final siren. The best players for both teams followed a similar pattern with Deane, Dawson and Everett a constant for Robe and Cocks, Childs and Swan for Glencoe.
ROBE 10-10 70 FELL IN, GLENCOE 9-10 64
Tantanoola look like the only threat to the top 2 teams after easily disposing of Kongorong by 72 points. Tant were never in danger and despite not scoring heavily the controlled play from the outset. Leading by 26 points at quarter-time they steadily increased the margin to 40 by half-time in the heavy conditions. They had too many good performers for Kongorong who just couldn’t get the ball forward often enough. Tant outscored Kongorong in every quarter to win easily with Jack Gregory, Brayden Lane and Tom Holmes kicking three goals each
TANTANOOLA 14-15 99 EASILY KONGORONG 4-3 27
Hatherleigh made short work of Nangwarry but by nowhere near as much as earlier and that probably emphasises the state of play with ladder positions all but settled. Hatherleigh had an enormous number of shots for goal but wasted many. Nangwarry settled for a losing margin of under 150 pointts, something that appeared unlikely for almost all season.

FINAL FOUR SET WITH THREE ROUNDS TO GO
Terry Willoughby - July 24, 2016
Only Hatherleigh had much to play for and that forlorn hope was snuffed out by quarter time when they failed to goal against Kalangadoo. The Magpies weren’t about to rollover to the flat-track bullies and piled on another seven goals in the second quarter to have Hatherleigh on the floor by half-time. Matthew Berkefeld and defenders Bannister and Auld had been resolute for Kalangadoo whilst John and Chris Mules gave plenty of drive. The game was all but over as a contest when the second half began and even though Hatherleigh gained some scoreboard respectability they never looked likely as Kalangadoo were now in cruise mode. The Magpies extended their three quarter-time advantage with four more goals to win easily by 60 points. Berkefeld, Bannister, John Mules, Auld and Stone were best for Kalangadoo. Hatherleigh’s best showed out mostly after half-time.
KALANGADOO 18-14 122 EASILY, HATHERLEIGH 9-8 62
Port MacDonnell were surprised by the tenacity of Glencoe who matched the Bay boys strongly to lead by nine points at quarter time but that was when penny dropped. Port Mac were stung into action and kept Glencoe scoreless in the second term and slammed on eight goals to race to a 45 point lead. Goal-kickers seemed to bob up everywhere as Port Mac went further ahead in the third quarter as the Glencoe resistance faltered. Port Mac coasted in with another six goals in the final quarter and won easily by 92 points. Eleven individual goal-kickers were led by Roscow and Williams with 4 each and better players were MacDonald, Tom Sullivan, Chant and McElroy. Zacc Cocks and Dylan Childs who are rarely out of Glencoe’s best, again battled strongly ahead of Swan, Martin and Giersch
PORT MACDONNELL 23-21 159 THRASHED GLENCOE 10-7 67
Kongorong had a rare win when they defeated a disinterested Robe by 14 points. About the only interest in the game was could Kongorong rise another place on the ladder. They led from almost go to whoa in a game that hardly aroused the spectators.
KONGORONG 10-14 74 DEFEATED ROBE 8-12 60
About the only interesting stat to come out of Mt Burr’s game with the hapless Nangwarry was that coach Tom Renzi booted 20 of their 39 goals. But to get some perspective on this we should equate that to kicking about 3 when you play against a top four opponent. One can only admire the Nangwarry players resolve when have been belted by an average margin of about 230 points all season and today was no different.

MT BURR CLEARLY ON TOP AS KALANGADOO RUES LOSS
Terry Willoughby - July 18, 2016
Hatherleigh displayed some finals form in the first quarter against Glencoe but it is likely to be all in vain as they will finish fifth. They bolted away in the first quarter with 9 goals to just two from Glencoe and effectively ended the contest but maybe they heard on the bush telegraph that Port Mac were unlikely to be upset by Kongorong because they managed only 6 more goals for the game to win by 32 points. Glencoe slowly clawed their way back into the game but they had given up too much of a lead early on. Jase Bateman, Tim Merrett, Faulkner and Waring played well for Hatherleigh. Glencoe’s best were Zacc Cocks, Martin, Ed Trupp and Giersch
HATHERLEIGH 15-14 104 DEFEATED GLENCOE 11-6 72
Close rivals Kongorong and Port MacDonnell had a tight battle in the first quarter with Port Mac ahead by 3 points. Mobile follower Daron McElroy was already a standout player for Port Mac and when his team piled on 13 goals to a miserable two from Kongorong in the middle quarters the result became a forgone conclusion. The win was the boost Port Mac needed but how much they take out of it remains to be seen, after Kongorong have only won twice. McElroy was best for Port Mac and booted six goals, others to play well were Zac Williams, Roscow and Will MacDonald. Jason Phillps, Hein, Waters and Ham tried hard for Kongorong.
PORT MACDONNELL 22-7 141 EASILY, KONGORONG 7-7 49
Tantanoola had a battle on their hands against a pumped up Robe who had little to play for. Jon Agnew was in everything for Robe who held the lead for almost all of the first half. Trailing by a point at the start of the second half Tantanoola were quick to assert the class and with Tom Holmes leading the way they overcame Robe with 5 goals to one and shot to a 24 point led with a quarter to go. Robe fell apart completely in the last term as Tant booted 12 goals to win comprehensively by 83 points. Tant had 12 individual goal-kickers as players seemed to pop everywhere when their turn beckoned. Holmes, Brown, Cooper Hamilton, Saint and Lyndon Smith were Tant’s best. Agnew played pretty much a lone hand for Robe with some help from Kurray and Pettit.
TANTANOOLA 21-15 THRASHED ROBE 8-8 56
Kalangadoo had a chance to go to the top of the ladder against Mt Burr but wasted too many opportunities, mostly in the second quarter. It was always going to be a tight contest and scores were level at quarter time. Defences of both teams were on top with Josh Wallis and veteran Pete Guyett for Mt Burr and Pratt and Bannister for Kalangadoo playing resolutely.
Kalangadoo kept Mt Burr to just one goal from two scoring shots but frittered away chances like a millionaire when they had 10 scoring opportunities for just a solitary major and led by only 9 points when it should have been much more. Mt Burr had survived the onslaught and made the most of it and booted four goals to Kalangadoo’s three and trail by just two points at the last change. Kalangadoo had used a lot of petrol by the start term and it was Mt Burr who finished better. Wallis was still strong in defence for the Mozzies but on-ballers Gallio, Dylan Ridley and youngster Zac Watson also stepped up and Kalangadoo still had the yips in front of goal. They again wasted chances with only two goals from six shots whilst Mt Burr four goals to win by seven points. Best for Mt Burr were Josh Wallis, Ridley, Gallio, Zac Watson, Fiebig and Guyett. Wasteful Kalangadoo, nine goals from 28 shots, were best served by Jack Casey, Bannister, Pratt, Hunter and Williams.

ARE PORT MAC GETTING THE STAGGERS?
Terry Willoughby - July 3, 2016
Do Port MacDonnell have a glass jaw or are Tantanoola better than first thought? Tant led narrowly at quarter time but Port Mac’s big men in Wil MacDonald and Daron Mcelroy were already under notice. The Bay boys had a greater part of play and booted 4 goals in the second term and held a 10 point lead at quarter-time. Youngsters Wade Chant, Blake Lynch and Sullivan had been good in support roles to MacDonald and McElroy but Tant turned up the heat in the third quarter with six goals to just two from Port Mac and suddenly the game had changed and now Port Mac were in trouble and trailing by 13 points. The last quarter was a battle of defences as Tant battled to hold onto the lead and Port Mac tried hard to regain it. Both sides goaled twice in the last quarter with Tant winning by 14 points. Port Macs goal-scoring ability appears to have deserted them and they now look vulnerable. Best for Tant were Cam Saint, Hayden Brown, McRostie, Radley and Tom Holmes. For Port Mac, Wil MacDonald and Mcelroy worked hard, Wade Chant, Lynch and Ryan Fox had their moments.
TANTANOOLA 12-10 82 DEFEATED PORT MCDONNELL 10-8 68
Kalangadoo pounded the goals all game to smash Nangwarry yet again, this time by 252 pts. Fifteen players got their names on the score-sheet and that turned the short drive from Kalangadoo to Nangwarry into a long one.
KALANGADOO 43-17 275 PUMMELED NANGWARRY 3-5 23
Hatherleigh had a comfortable 36 point win over Kongorong and keep what looks like a chance for finals alive! Realistically they have little, a game and half from fourth spot and fewer games to play hide the true story. The Eagles were never in danger after quarter time leading by 33 and 43 points at half and three quarter-time respectively. Hatherleigh’s better skilled players in Caolin Buckley who booted 6 goals, Gerard McGrath and Jack Sullivan punished the poor finishing by Kongorong repeatedly to be best for the Eagles. Kongorong booted four last quarter goals but the game was done and dusted by then.
HATHERLEIGH 15-17 107 TOO STRONG, KONGORONG 11-5 71
Mt Burr very nearly succumbed to lowly Glencoe before snatching a five point win to remain on top of the ladder. In a lack lustre performance the Mozzies were harassed all day by Glencoe who trailed by just a solitary point at half-time. Glencoe’s usual good players in Childs and Cocks were getting some valuable help which hasn’t been there very often and they forced errors in a somewhat cocky Mt Burr team. The Mozzies got a mini-break in the third quarter but defenders Josh Wallis and Brodie Hennink were working overtime to keep Glencoe out. Glencoe again challenged strongly in the final quarter and forced Mt Burr to defend grimly before falling 5 pts short. Most of Mt Burr’s best were in the back-lines, Hennink, Josh Wallis, Clint Gallio and Sam Wallis. Glencoe’s best were Dane Paproth, Childs, Cocks, Jason Bates, Pitson and Giersch.

TOP FOUR IN THEIR SEPARATE COMPETITION
Terry Willoughby - June 26, 2016
Glencoe was the only team outside the top four to win at the weekend but even they only managed a win over hapless Nangwarry by 176 points and ensure they didn’t fall to the bottom of the ladder. Everything was the same as before for Nangwarry but at least they kept Glencoe to less than 30 goals.
GLENCOE 29-23 197 CRUSHED NANGWARRY 3-3 21
Mt Burr easily disposed of Kongorong by 80 points after increasing their lead in every quarter. Big man power drove the Mozzies with Henry Crauford and Jake Dowdy leading the way. Goal-kicking accuracy deserted Mt Burr in the third term when they added three goals from eleven scoring shots but Kongorong went scoreless for the term. Mt Burr coach Tom Renzi led the goalkicking with five as they went further ahead in the last term. Good players for Mt Burr were Crauford, Dowdy, Clint Gallio, Hennink and Stanley. Jason Phillips was the best in a poor effort for Kongorong.
MT BURR 18-16 124 EASILY OVER KONGORONG 6-8 48
Robe made a promising start against Port MacDonnell and led by 9 points at quarter-time with the usuals in Jaryd Dawson, Zac Deane and Dickinson doing well but that was the signal for the Bay boys to step up. After the first change Port Mac kept Robe to just two goals in the last three quarters and booted eleven themselves amid a plethora of chances to win easily by 59 points but it should have been much more. Scott Enderl, Zack Williams, Roscow, MacDonald and Ned Wilke all played well for Port Mac while most of Robe’s better players went missing after a good start.
PORT MACDONNELL 13-20 98 DEFEATED ROBE 6-3 39
Hatherleigh’s fragile form and hope of final’s action disappeared by half-time against Tantanoola whose greater playing depth was too much for the Eagles. Leading by 27 points at half-time the Tigers had a strong target at full forward in Jack Gregory who finished with eight goals and others who bobbed up in support. Tant kicked away in the third term with six goals to three as Hatherleigh struggled to stay in touch despite the efforts of Gerard McGrath and Caolin Buckley. Tant’s ability to find a target highlighted their dominance and they won comfortably by 53 points. Best for Tant were Hayden Brown veteran defender Dustin Knaggs, Radley, Lane and Troy Hatt. McGrath, Jed Telfer, Buckley and Matt Faulkner headed Hatherleigh’s best.

MT BURR HANG ON BY NARROWEST
MARGIN AGAINST TANTANOOLA
Terry Willoughby - June 20, 2016
Mt Burr led throughout but were mightily pleased to hear the final siren when they held on to win by a point against Tantanoola. In a game where goals were hard to come by the Mozzies had three by quarter-time and a lead of 15 points. Defenders Josh Wallis and Brodie Hennink were holding up many Tant forward moves whilst the Mozzie forwards were finding scoring almost as difficult. The second quarter saw Mt Burr gain the biggest lead of the game when they added four goals with coach Tom Renzi and fellow on-baller Clint Gallio finding some space to follow up chances provided by ruckmen Dowdy and Crauford. The Mozzies led by 16 points at the main break and Tant had wasted chances around goal due to the strong defensive work of Mt Burr. Play continued to be a battle of defences in the third term but Tant were having more of the play with Tom Holmes having many touches around the mid-field and Jack Dawe getting into the game but Mt Burr kept a tight hold on the lead which narrowed to 10 points at three quarter-time. In darker conditions the only thing that shone were goals and only 3 were kicked in the last quarter as Tant closed in but Mt Burr’s solitary major was enough to win by just a point. Best for the Mozzies were Wallis, Dylan Ridley, Gallio, Dowdy and Hennink. Tantanoola were brave in defeat but poor kicking was their problem and their best were Holmes, Dawe, Troy Hatt, Ricky Hay and Williams.
MT BURR 9-4 58 HANG ON, TANTANOOLA 7-15 57
The game was never a contest as the Hawks did very much what they liked. Josh Wright booted 13 goals and Paul Ellis eight for Kongorong whilst Phil Forster booted Nangwarry’s single goal.
KONGORONG 44-17 281 TO NANGWARRY 1-5 11
In the past matches between Kalangadoo and Glencoe were brutal battleground affairs but not this one. The Magpies are in top spot and Glencoe are only two games ahead of the much maligned Nangwarry and that is how the game played out. The Magpies were all over Glencoe after the Murphies made an enterprising start to lead by 9 points at quarter time. That all changed quickly when Kalangadoo rattled on 15 goals to just three in the middle quarters and lead by 66 points at the last change. Jack Casey and veteran forward Michael Durbidge went on goal-kicking spree with seven and 5 respectively as Glencoe’s defence buckled. Kalangadoo added a lazy seven more goals to zip from Glencoe in the final quarter to win easily by 110 points. The Magpie best were Lachlan Jones, Fatchen, Bannister, Stone and Jack Casey. Glencoe’s battlers included Nic Martin, Cocks, Pitson and Kasparian.
KALANGADOO 24-19 163 THRASHED GLENCOE 7-11 53
A good first half by Robe saw them hold a 23 point lead and look likely to upset last round’s giant-killer Hatherleigh if they could sustain the form but it wasn’t to be. Hatherleigh snapped out of their lethargy and rammed on seven goals in the third quarter with Mcgrath, Sullivan and Rayson the prime movers and Wight and Caolin Buckley bobbing up around goals. Robe had dropped off the pace as Hatherleigh went to three quarter-time with a five point lead. Hatherleigh could have had a bigger win but poor finishing near goal kept Robe within striking distance but just didn’t have enough good players to mount a challenge and Hatherleigh went on to win by 15 points. Mcgrath, Sullivan, Rayson and Waring were best for Hatherleigh. Robe’s better players were Dawson, Dickinson and a pair of Jacks’ Kelly and Sneath.

HATHERLEIGH CAUSE HUGE BOILOVER
June 6, 2016 - Terry Willoughby
Hatherleigh caused a monstrous boilover when they defeated one of the top four, Port MacDonnell by 54 points. The result may be a little misleading however, as Hatherleigh are still two and a half games outside the top four and the premiership ladder did not change. Port Mac looked sluggish early and Hatherleigh matched them everywhere with Jason Faulkner and Jed Telfer doing a fine job against the high scoring Port Mac forwards. Port Mac got on top briefly in the second quarter when they goaled four times and went to half time with narrow nine point lead. All indicators on past form suggested that Port Mac would go on to win from here but Hatherleigh regrouped with Caolin Buckley and Jack Sullivan leading the way around the mid-field and McGrath at half-forward in menacing touch. Port Mac’s big guns in McDonald, Dylan Bromley and McElroy had been well held at this stage and Hatherleigh surged to a 13 point lead at three quarter time. Still many would have expected Port Mac to rise out of their sluggishness but again it was Hatherleigh who now had their collective feet on the throat of Port Mac and they weren’t about to stop. They slammed on six last quarter goals as Port Mac surrendered to race away to a big win, arguably their best in several seasons. Caolin Buckley, Faulkner, Jack Sullivan, Jed Telfer, McGrath and Joe Rayson all played well for Hatherleigh. Port Mac’s best were a little harder to find but Wade Chant, Simmonds, Matt Roscow and Tom Sullivan tried valiantly.
HATHERLEIGH 14-17 101 UPSET PORT MACDONNELL 7-5 47
Tantanoola got thepercentage boost this week with the usual thumping of Nangwarry by 221 points.
TANTANOOLA 36-27 243 NANGWARRY 3-4 22
Kalangadoo easily disposed of Kongorong after quarter time when the scores had been level at three goals each. From there-on Kalangadoo dominated play and booted 20 goals to four from Kongorong to win easily by 108 points and maintain top spot on the ladder. Kalangadoo’s mid-fielders in Fatchen and Jones won many kicks and booted goals as well give the Magpies a huge lead by three quarter time. Coach Ben Mules booted six goals for Kalangadoo who did pretty much as they liked after the first quarter. Best for Kalangadoo were Jones, tom Williams, Krieger, Bannister and Fatchen. Only Michael Waters, Jason Phillips and Robert Hein showed much resolve for Kongorong.
KALANGADOO 23-15 153 TROUNCED KONGORONG 7-3 45
Mt Burr saw off a strong challenge from a competitive Robe to win by 39 points. Robe led early but wasted chances to build a solid lead with inaccuracy. Mt Burr gradually got on top in the second term but Robe clung on tenaciously and were right in the game at the long break and trailed by just 10 points. Veterans in Jaryd Dawson and Kelly were doing well and Zac Deane proved an effective avenue to goal for Robe. Mt Burr quickly asserted their greater depth of talent in the third quarter when they slammed through seven goals to just one from Robe and raced to 43 point lead and seemingly a comfortable win. Robe had other ideas and again made Mt Burr fight hard for the points as they kept in touch with the highly rated Mozzies to the finish but had been beaten by one poor quarter. On –baller Clint Gallio was best for Mt Burr, Tom Hales booted five goals whilst coach Tom Renzi, Henry Crauford and Sam Wallis played well. Dawson, Kelly, Deane with five goals and Jordan Mann played well for Robe.

MT BURR AND KALANGADOO VICTORIOUS IN TOP 4 CLASHES
May 30, 2016 - Round Nine report with Terry Willoughby
Kalangadoo asserted themselves early against Tantanoola and led by 19 points “Max” Fatchen showing his best form since transferring from Nangwarry. Jack Casey up forward was another to show out and Tantanoola couldn’t subdue either of them. Tantanoola added six goals in the second quarter but Kalangadoo were still going strongly and matched every goal and more with Jon Mules and Lachy Jones involved in most moves. Tant were still close enough at the start of the third quarter but Kalangadoo had their tails up and slammed on another 6 goals as Tant struggled and the margin blew out to 59 points at three quarter-time. Kalangadoo coasted a little in the last quarter and Tant booted some junk-time goals but never really threatened. Fatchen, Jon Mules, Jack Casey and Lachy Jones were outstanding for Kalangadoo. Best for a patchy Tantanoola were Troy Hatt, Radley, Hudson and Saint.
KALANGADOO 21-10 126 OVER TANTANOOLA 15-10 100
Robe did the now commonplace stitch-up job on Nangwarry, this time by 226 points. Kelly and Deane booted 10 goals each for Robe but that is cold comfort because Robe are still two games and plenty of percentage shy of the top four. Nangwarry at least managed a trio of goals.
ROBE 38-22 250, NO DESCRIPTIVES, NNGWARRY 3-6 24
Glencoe erased last weeks’ horror with a 32 point win over Kongorong. The Murphies charged to a 35 point lead at quarter time and have Kongorong on the defensive from there-on. Glencoe led at every change with McEachern, Creek and Biggins each booting three goals and the usuals of Kasparian, Martin and Cocks among the best. Youngsters Blackwell, Michael Waters and Ellis headed Kongorong’s best.
GLENCOE 16-11 107 COMFORTABLY OVER KONGORONG 10-15 75
Mt Burr dispelled any ideas that they might be on the downslide with a 36 point win over Port MacDonnell. Clint Gallio and Jake Dowdy impressed around the stoppages and mid-field with their ability to win the ball and use it effectively. The Mozzies always had the upperhand and led at every change. Port Mac just couldn’t make any inroads once Mt Burr got on top in the second quarter. Former medallist Clint Gallio was best for Mt Burr ahead of Dowdy, Josh Wallis, former North Gambier junior Henry Crauford and defender Pete Guyett. Bromley, rugged Ben O’Dine, McDonald and Zac Williams tried hard for the disappointing Port Mac.

BIG MARGINS AGAIN RULE - ROUND EIGHT REPORT
May 22, 2016 - by Terry Willoughby
Glencoe became the second team to cop a 30 goal thrashing when Tantanoola blew them away with a ten goal burst in the first quarter and lead by 50 points. Not content with that the Tigers slammed on another 9 in the second and any sort of a contest was over. Glencoe briefly arrested the scoring onslaught in the third term but Tant were just coasting by then with many players just arranging themselves into goal-kicking order of which there were fourteen. Tantanoola exploded into action again in the last quarter with 13 goals to just two from Glencoe which gave their percentage a healthy boost and sent them to the top of the ladder. Best for Tant were Jack Dawe, Brown, Dylan Tincknell and Troy Hatt. Not much joy for the Murphies who were reduced to a sack of spuds, Childs, Martin and Trupp tried hard.
TANTANOOLA 35-15 225 CRUSHED GLENCOE 7-6 48
Mt Burr brought last week’s flat-track bullies, Hatherleigh back to earth when they led at every change to win by 34 points. The Mozzies were quick to assert their authority on the game in the First-half when they led by 46 points. Former medallist Clint Gallio was in slick form around the mid-field and stoppages where he provided lots of chances and forwards Tom Hales with six goals and Dylan Ridley three, made the most of them. No multiple goal-kickers this week for Hatherleigh who struggled against the tight defence of Mt Burr led by Sam Wallis and Pete Guyett. Mt Burr took their foot off the gas a little after half-time but were never in danger of defeat. Tom hales, Ridley, Gallio and Sam Wallis played well for MtBburr whilst Gerard McGrath headed Hatherleigh’s best along with Jed Telfer and Wight.
MT BURR 19-5 119 TOO STRONG FOR HATHERELIGH 12-13 85
Kalangadoo bounced back from last week’s shock defeat and had too much talent for Robe. The Magpies started in powerful fashion with seven goals to lead by 30 points at quarter time and looked in the mood for a big win but Robe clung on tenaciously through the second term and closed the margin to 19 points with star ruckman Dylan Coxon doing well at the stoppages and Jon Agnew in good touch at ground level. The Magpies again surged in the third term but Robe kept within respectable range but couldn’t close the gap. The Mules brothers, Ben, Chris and John were all doing well for Kalangadoo and Robes challenge was starting to wane in the last quarter as Kalangadoo raced on another 5 goals to finish with a battling 51 point win. Ben Mules booted six goals to be best for Kalangadoo along with his siblings and Jason Bannister. Robe struggled to finish the game off with Kelly, Pete and Jon Agnew, and Coxon named best.
KALANGADOO 20-9 129 COMFORTABLY OVER ROBE 12-6 78
Another day and another thumping for Nangwarry, this time from Port MacDonnell. Which ponders the question, how long can and will this last? Dylan Bromley booted 13 goals for the winners in a game that was little more than goal-kicking practice where 14 players shared the spoils. To give some idea of Nangwarry’s plight you only have to look at the premiership ladder, 88 points for and 1601 against. Results such as these are not just difficult for Nangwarry, the winners also lose interest in the lack of challenge.

PORT MACDONNELL FINISH STRONGLY TO DEFEAT KALANGADOO
Report from Terry Willoughby - May 16, 2016
Port Mac trailed throughout the first 3 quarters before finishing over the top of Kalangadoo to win by 5 points but they still didn’t advance on the premiership ladder which has four teams level on five wins each. Kalangadoo started with the aid of a 2-3 goal breeze but failed to take advantage of it and led by just 6 points. Port Mac’s big men had clogged up the Magpie forward line effectively but lacked attacking avenues. Kalangadoo stole a break in the 2nd quarter with five goals and looked to be going better at the half-time siren. Port Mac again stifled the Kalangadoo forwards in the 3rd term with MacDonald, McIntyre and O’Dine most effective. They matched Kalangadoo on the scoreboard but still trailed by 18 points but now had the greater proportion of play. Port Mac finished strongly with six last quarter goals to swamp Kalangadoo and win by just 5 points. Ben O’Dine in defence along with Jacob Langdon stopped many Kalangadoo forward moves and Wil MacDonald provided his small-men with an abundance of chances to best for Port Mac. Kalangadoo disappointed at the finish and their best were Jack Casey, Dallas Jeffree, Lowe, Lachy Jones and Fatchen.
PORT MACDONNELL 13-10 88 JUST, KALANGADOO 12-11 83
The floggings continue for Nangwarry, this time from the flat-track bullies in Hatherleigh by a whopping 341 points. With three double figure goal-kickers in Wight, Merrett and Telfer no more needs to be said.
HATHERLEIGH 55-19 349 NANGWARRY 1-2 8
Robe overcame a spirited Glencoe after half-time to win by 44 points. Glencoe led throughout the first half but never by much but again it was the hard work of the regular best players that kept them in the game. Kasparian, Childs, goal-kicking Alex Hentschke lacked support, particularly in the 2nd half once Robe started to get on top. Booting seven goals to three in the 3rd quarter saw Robe turn an 8 point deficit into lead of 19 points going into the last quarter. They had plenty of momentum with on-ballers Coxon and Jon Agnew now on top. Robe finished with another seven goal quarter and run out comfortable winners. Best for the Roosters were former coach Dylan Coxon, Kelly, Jon Agnew, Pettit and Everett. Matt Kasparian was best for Glencoe ahead of Childs, Pitson, Hentschke with five goals and Poole.
ROBE 20-15 135 COMFORTABLY OVER GLENCOE 14-7 91
Tantanoola with a strong 1st quarter had too much talent for Kongorong. The Tigers led by 30 points at quarter-time and although sloppy in the second term never had any worries. Class players in Jack Dawe, Tom Holmes won possessions all around the ground and hard working on-ballers Troy Hatt and Lyndon Smith pushed the ball forward at every opportunity. Kongorong’s better players battled to find a way forward where the Tantanoola defence was too strong.

KALANGADOO STAY UNBEATEN
by Terry Willoughby - May 7, 2016
Kalangadoo maintained their winning run after a competitive first half against Hatherleigh. The Eagles led narrowly at quarter time and continued to match scores through the second term when they trailed by just 2 pts at the main break. Gerard McGrath and Jack Sullivan were giving plenty of drive around the mid-field for Hatherleigh and the Magpies were constantly being harassed when they had possession. The Eagles work-rate started to fall away in the 3rd quarter and Kalangadoo kicked out to a 22 point lead at three-quarter time with Bannister, Pratt and Lowe showing the way and Ben Mules directing play and kicking some valuable goals. Hatherleigh’s efforts faded completely in the last quarter and even though Kalangadoo outscored them the margin didn’t blow out too far as the Magpies coasted in by 36 points.
KALANGADOO 14-9 93 SOLIDLY OVER HATHERLEIGH 8-9 57
Mt Burr inflicted the usual degree of pain on the hapless Nangwarry with a 176 point belting, albeit the closest game Nangwarry have had in 2016. Jake Dowdy with seven and Tom Hales with six led the goal-kicking frenzy for the Mozzies whilst Craig Hicks battled hard for Nangwarry.
MT BURR 28-22 190 TO A BELEAGURED NANGWARRY 2-2 14
Robe bolted to a big lead by quarter time against Kongorong and were never seriously challenged from there-on. The Roosters had a 31 point lead going into the second term but were unable to build on it as Kongorong tightened up in defence and Robe forgot how they got such a big lead in the first place. Nick Cane was a strong goal-kicking target for Robe who regained some of its earlier form in the third quarter to again kick away to a big lead with four goals to one from Kongorong and lead by 46 points. Kongorong matched Robe on the scoreboard in the last quarter but the damage had been done with Robe winning by 39 points. Jake Wehl was best for Robe ahead of Cane who booted sixgoals, Kelly and Lehmann. The Phillips boys, Jason and Shaun, Ellis and Waters were best for Kongorong.
ROBE 16-9 105 TOO GOOD FOR KONGORONG 9-12 66
Glencoe put up its best showing for the season but it was still not enough and they went down to a Dylan Bromley inspired Port MacDonnell by 17 points. Glencoe led their more highly rated opponent by 10 pts at quarter time but a six-goal 2nd term by Port Mac saw that lead evaporate by the quarter-time break. Already Bromley was proving too hot to handle on the Port Mac forward line. Another six goals in the third quarter saw Port Mac extend their lead to 16 points with youngsters Ned Wilke, Scott Enderl and Wade Chant chipping in with good play to further frustrate Glencoe. Glencoe’s usuals in Cocks, Kasparian and Childs were battling strongly to keep their team in touch but Bromley turned everything to gold whenever Port Mac went forward. Both teams booted five goals in the final term but Bromley’s efforts ensured a win by 19 points for Port Mac. He booted 11 of his team’s 19 goals to be best on ground.

GAPS WIDEN BETWEEN TOP AND BOTTOM
by Terry Willoughby - May 2, 2016
Kalangadoo remain the only unbeaten team after narrowly defeating Mt Burr by just 8 points. The Magpies shot to an early of 17 points but were kept goal-less in the second quarter as Mt Burr battled their way back. The Mozzies should have been in front at the main break but wasted shots around goal. The third quarter was an even battle with both teams booting four goals but Kalangadoo increased their lead to just 2 points. Mt Burr again had chances go begging in the last quarter and Kalangadoo made more of theirs to win narrowly. Better players for Kalangadoo were Reynolds, Pratt, Matt Berkefeld and Jack Casey with four goals. Ty Stanley, Jake Dowdy in the ruck, Josh Fiebig with five goals and “Angry” Anderson were best for Mt Burr
KALANGADOO 12-11 83 DEFEATED MT BURR 10-15 75
Hatherleigh dominated the 1st half against Glencoe to lead by 55 points. They outscored Glencoe in every quarter, finishing with a burst of seven to win easily by 83 points. Jack Sullivan, Matt Fabris and Caolin Buckley starred around the stoppages and mid-field for Hatherleigh whilst Sam Telfer with six goals and Brad Wight five were too strong on the forward line. Glencoe were very disappointing with only Patrick Mitchell, Swan and Trupp showing much fight.
HATHERLEIGH 21-17 143 THRASHED GLENCOE 8-12 60
Port MacDonnell burnt off an early challenge from Kongorong with an 8 goal burst in the 3rd quarter to win by 47 points. Kongorong took the game right up to Port Mac in the first-half but lacked the scoring power to make the Seasiders pay. In the 3rd term Port Mac’s strong rucks and on-ballers fired up and the game was out of Kongorong’s reach at three quarter-time. Ben McGregor and McElroy won handsomely around the stoppages with Ben O’Dine a stumbling block in defence. Nick Ham, Jason and Shaun Phillps battled hard for Kongorong but one big quarter bought them undone.
PORT MACDONNELL 15-13 103 COMFORTABLE WINNERS, KONGORONG 7-12 54
Greater goal scoring power enabled Tantanoola to kick away to a good lead by quarter time against Robe and built a buffer for the remaining three quarters. Robe battled strongly in the middle quarters but could never quite get on terms with the greater depth of Tantanoola who led by 19 points at the last change. Robe had used up all their credits by then and Tant kicked away with six goals to three in the last quarter to win by 36 points. Hudson and Troy Hatt were best for Tant and provided ten of the 18 goals. Robes reliance on a few again told with Everett, Kelly, Nick Cane and Pete Agnew again their best.

TWO NAILBITERS & TWO BIG WINS IN ROUND FOUR
April 26, 2016 - Terry Willoughby
Hatherleigh led at every change but never by much. Kongorong tenaciously hung on and were never out of contention but never appeared quite likely to win either. Down by just 5 points at three-quarter time, the Hawks battled on strongly and made the most of their chances with 3 last quarter goals to level the scores at the final siren. Jase Bateman, Wight and Matt Fabris played well for Hatherleigh. Franchetto, Waters and Lightbody did likewise for Kongorong.
HATHERELIGH 11-16 82 DREW WITH KONGORONG 12-10 82
Port MacDonnell and Tananoola went goal for goal throughout with the scores rarely more than a kick apart. Tantanoola held the lead at each change of ends and then withstood a late challenge to win narrowly by just 2 points. Port Mac’s straight kicking kept them in touch throughout although Tant had more of the play. Bryce Radley, Troy Hatt, Jack Dawe and Tincknell were good players for Tant . Zack Williams, McElroy, Justin Bromley and Feast were good for Port Mac who without star bigman Will McDonald.
TANTANOOLA 12-13 85 JUST OVER PORT MACDONNELL 13-5 83
Mt Burr despite wayward goal-kicking led easily at half-time over Glencoe. The Mozzies dominated play and had 22 soring shots but only led by 43 points. The usual triers of Childs, Cocks and Kasparian battled to keep Glencoe in the game along with Ed Trupp but Mt Burr with 10 individual goal-kickers had too much talent and better teamwork. They went further ahead in the 2nd half and won easily by 93 pts. Coach Thomas Renzi booted seven goals for Mt Burr and Gallio was a star around the stoppages and mid-field, others to do well were Dowdy, Guyett and Dylan Ridley.

GAP BECOMES A GULF BETWEEN TOP AND BOTTOM TEAMS
April 18, 2016 - News on Round Three from Terry Willoughby
Top team Mt Burr and steadily increased their margin over Kongorong throughout the game to win by 66 points. Too many good players to cover proved Kongorong’s un-doing with Dylan Ridley, Stanley, Jake Dowdy and Brodie Hennink leading the way for Mt Burr. Ten individual goal-kickers bobbed up as Mt Burr led by 28 points at the long break and raced away in the 3rd term to have the game under control with a 56 point lead. Mt Burr added another six goals in the last quarter but coasted a little and allowed in Kongorong in for four goals but still won easily.
MT BURR 19-13 127 TOO GOOD, KONGORONG 9-7 61
An inaccurate Tantanoola saw off an early challenge from Hatherleigh to win comfortably by 42 points. The Eagles led by 3 points at quarter-time but Tant clicked into gear in the second quarter with five goals but wasted a chance to hold a commanding lead with poor finishing. Lyndon Smith was leading the way for Tant and star recruit Tom Holmes picked up kicks all around the ground as Tant led by 27 points. Braydn Reilly was effective near goal for Tant who again wasted chances in the third quarter which allowed Hatherleigh to stay in touch without ever really threatening. Tant kicked away in the last term but it could have been much better than the 42 point margin indicated. Reilly finished with five goals, Smith and Holmes were high in the best for Tantanoola. Sullivan, Walker and Pulmer headed Hatherleigh’s best.
TANTANOOLA 14-20 104 EASILY, HATHERLEIGH 9-8 62
Port MacDonnell wasted early chances with poor kicking for goal which kept Robe in the game at quarter time but then added 14 goals without a miss to win easily. Port Mac led by 15 points at the half-time interval and then kept Robe scoreless in the third term to lead by 39 points. Robe added five goals in the last quarter to gain scoreboard respectability but Port Mac slammed through seven without a miss to win by 46 points. Zack Williams, Jacob Langdon Justin Bromley and McElroy headed Port Mac’s best and Dylan Bromley booted four goals. The usuals in Everett, Kelly, Agnew and Cane stood out for Robe but most were outclassed.
PORT MACDONNELL 17-7 109 DEFEATED ROBE 9-9 63
It was Glencoe’s turn to inflict more pain on Nangwarry and they did so with a 204 point pasting. Sixty-six scoring shots to just seven from Nangwarry gives a better picture of the game. Tory Weaver booted 13 goals for Glencoe but his mother might also have done just as well! Cocks, Weaver and Brad Mitchell starred for Glencoe who got a big percentage boost if nothing else because another thrashing was what Nangwarry got.

by Terry Willoughby - April 10, 2016
Mt Burr trailed throughout the first half against round ones biggest winner in Tantanoola but regrouped in the 3rd quarter to snatch a six point lead at the last change. Tant had more of the play but wasted chances in front of goal, 15 shots to 9 for a one point lead was a poor return and Mt Burr made them pay in the 2nd half. Dowdy and coach Renzi each booted four goals as Tant struggled to keep afloat. The Mozzies seemed to goal every time they went forward and in the end won by 27 points. The best for Mt Burr were the Ridley brothers, Henry Crauford, formerly with North Gambier and Clint Gallio. Tant’s best were Brown, Williams, Knaggs and Troy Hatt.
MT BURR 16-8 104 TO TANTANOOLA 11-11 77
