Central, South women take points

Both the Central and South women’s sides scored important wins last Saturday but it was West and North who enjoyed the better of the lower grade games in round 12.
First played second as South hosted West at the Alma Oval and, as has become a trend of late, the Robins let their opposition get off to a great start.
South led by 13 points at quarter-time and extended that to 20 points at the main break as West failed to score in the first half. The Robins finally got going in the third term with three goals to South’s two and reduced the deficit to just 12 points with a quarter to go.
It looked as if West would get out of jail once again with a strong finish to the game but it was not to be on Saturday as South held on by five points despite not scoring in that final term. Bronte Johns kicked two goals for the Roos while West had four different goal kickers including Rachael Wheatley in her 100th women’s game.
Brydie Mannion and Phoebe Knell were named West’s best while Abbey Stevens and Sarah Gillespie were the standouts for South as they celebrated Kacee Milnes’ 100th game in style.
Across town it was Central who proved too good for North and put themselves in the box seat to play finals.
Neither side scored a goal in the first half but a strong second stanza from the Magpies saw them take the win by 15 points. Emma Camilleri booted two goals for Central while Ash Forbes and Shelby Raven continued their very good seasons and Caitlin Lee was North’s best on a tough day.
An inspired second half led West to their seventh win of the season as they ran away to a 20-point win.
Down by 13 points at halftime, the Robins turned it around to kick 6.5 in the final two quarters while holding South scoreless.
Zane Kemp, Rylie McInnes and Cowen Smith all kicked two goals apiece for the Robins with Peter Christos and Gary Edge named as their best. Brendon Heinjus and Deklin Langdon were South’s better players.
North had a much easier time of it at the Jubilee Oval as they belted Central’s reserves by 74 points set up by a nine-goal to one first half.
Dakoda Hocking, Jakarda Cini and Jackson Schorn all booted three goals apiece for the Bulldogs with Matthew McKenzie named as their best while Jayson Higgins and Sinele King were impressive for the Magpies.
The win, coupled with South’s loss, moves North a game clear atop the Reserves ladder with three rounds to go.
West cruised to a 39-point win over the Roos thanks to a two-goal, best on ground effort by Joel Van Kemenade. Bryce Langdon booted a goal for South and was named as their best.
At the Jubilee Oval, five goals each from Mckaide Standley and Jet Johnson led the Bulldogs to a huge win over Central. Dwight Chestnut battled hard for the Magpies.
West also picked up a comfortable win at the start of the day with their under 13s defeating South by 36 points. Jarvis Doody was West’s best while Douglas Waites was the standout player for the Roos.
In the other game, North’s Kain Berryman had a day out with seven goals in a best on ground performance as the Bulldogs won by 113 points. Central’s Harrison Ragenovich was their best on a tough day.
