It was a clean sweep for South at the Alma Oval on Saturday, headlined by a seven-goal haul by Melisa Keenan in the women’s game, while North also picked up a big reserves win over the Robins.


Keenan’s best performance of the season so far came against the Magpies on Saturday as she led her side to a huge 67-point win. Eliza Cumming was once again amongst South’s best along with Sarah Burns and Britney McInnes.

Shelby Raven was easily Central’s standout and kicked their only goal of the afternoon with a running effort that contained five or six bounces in the final minute of the game.

Across town it was a much closer game and the bottom-placed Bulldogs even held a 13-point lead against the top of the ladder West at halftime, but the second half belong to the Robins as they ran away with a 14-point win.

Sophie Palmer kicked two goals for West and Brydie Mannion was named as their best while Natalie McMahon and Ebony Watson were North’s better players on the day.  

West are in the box seat to finish first and can lock that up with a win over South this coming Saturday. Despite their fifth-straight loss, the Magpies still sit in third place on the ladder but will need a big effort next weekend against an improving North side as the two battle for third spot.


South held off a brave Central side and kicked away late to win by 44 points. Nick Brown and Ryan Gillespie were impressive for the Roos while Leo Johnson, with three goals, was Central’s best player.

North’s reserves kept pace with the Roos in the race for the minor premiership with an 80-point victory over the Robins at the Jubilee Oval. 

Ethan Slater pushed his case for a senior call-up following his return from injury with four goals while Jackson Pryor and Nash Mitchell were named as the Bulldogs’ better players. Peter Christos and Tim Nicholson were West’s standouts as the Robins fell to their fifth loss of the season.

Ty Parker kicked six goals and Mason McCully booted five to lead South to a huge 149-point win over the Magpies while Dwight Chestnut was Central’s best once again.

Seven goals from Kody Ellis headlined North’s win against the Robins at the Jube with Joel Van Kemenade continuing his strong season by being awarded West’s best player.
