Five goals from Dylan Johns helped South run over the top of West in the reserves last Saturday while the North women scored their second win of 2019.

South and West went back and forth in their reserves clash at the Alma Oval, trading the quarter-time and halftime leads. 

The Roos broke out to a two-goal advantage after the third term and eventually ran out winners by 23 points.

Johns, who was in town for the funeral service of his grandfather Brian the day before, was given special clearance to play in the game from both his home club and by the West Football Club. He went on to boot five goals in a special performance up forward.

It was also a competitive affair in the other reserves game with North holding on for a 37-point win over a gallant Central side. 

Jarred Paull booted three goals for the Pies while Dakoda Hocking did likewise for North and both were named as their respective sides’ best players.

The North women picked up just their second win of the season, overcoming their inaccuracy to defeat Central by 28 points. 

The Bulldogs kicked 11 behinds from 14 scoring shots but held the Magpies goal-less.

West were made to work hard for their seventh win of 2019, breaking away from South in the final 10 minutes to win by 20 points. Lillie Bornholdt kicked two goals for the Robins while Indianna Paull was their best. 

Bronte Johns kicked both of South’s goals and Eliza Cumming was again their standout.

The Robins were too strong for the Roos in the Under 15’s with Harper Bromson’s four goals leading them to an easy win. Central were unfortunately forced to forfeit again, handing the points to North at the Jubilee Oval.

West edged out South in their low-scoring Under 13’s game by 11 points. Eli Chestnut kicked two goals for the Robins.

At the Jube, North proved too strong for the Magpies as a three-goal, best on ground effort from Cruz Lihou led them to a 61-point win.
