Mad­dest of Sun­days for Tigers


THE Mid-North trans­formed into Tiger­land yes­ter­day as foot­ball and netball play­ers from Brinkworth, Spald­ing and Red­hill cel­e­brated win­ning four pre­mier­ships in a sin­gle day.

The BSR Tigers’ A and B grade foot­ball teams each won back-to-back pre­mier­ships while the Tigers A-1 netball team won its first pre­mier­ship since 1995.

It fol­lowed a one-goal loss in last year’s grand fi­nal.

Club vice pres­i­dent Shane Weck­ert said it had been a busy but suc­cess­ful day for the club.

“The netball girls cel­e­brated the hard­est,” Mr Weck­ert said.

“They went nuts af­ter the game. It was pretty spe­cial for them win­ning this year af­ter los­ing last year by a sin­gle point.”

The Tigers C-2 netball team also won but the A-2 side was not as lucky, los­ing by four goals to North Clare.

The Tigers A-grade foot- ball team beat Blyth-Snow­town 58-31, while the BGrade side beat the Bur­raBooborowie-Hal­lett side 7527.

Play­ers from all the Tigers teams cel­e­brated to­gether on Sun­day.

In the South-East, an- other tiny town with a strong foot­ball her­itage re­turned to the win­ner’s cir­cle as Mun­dulla won its first pre­mier­ship since 2004.

Mun­dulla won through from the elim­i­na­tion fi­nal to beat favourites Keith by three points in the grand fi­nal of the Kowree-Nara­coorte-Ta­tiara League.

It was a re­turn to form for the Mun­dulla team which won nine pre­mier­ships in 11 years and a mind­bend­ing seven flags in a row start­ing in 1994.

In the Ade­laide Plains Foot­ball League Two Wells went back-to-back, de­feat­ing Balaklava by 20 points.

In the Hills League Iron­bank broke an 18-year pre­mier­ship drought, down­ing Kers­brook in a dom­i­nant 28 point win.

In the SANFL pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal at Ade­laide Oval, yes­ter­day, North Ade­laide staged an ex­tra­or­di­nary come­back to win by five points, af­ter ear­lier trail­ing Woodville-West Tor­rens by 47 points.
