Mag­pies set pace

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport - BY JONATHAN BOX

Af­ter four rounds of Minin­era and District Foot­ball League, Wick­lif­fe­lake Bo­lac re­mains the only un­de­feated team as it con­tin­ues its strong start to the sea­son.

The Mag­pies’ lat­est vic­tory came over Taty­oon to the tune of 38 points.

The Mag­pies led from the start and although outscored by Taty­oon in the last quar­ter, the dam­age was well and truly al­ready done.

Will Slat­tery put in another big per­for­mance in front of goals, kick­ing six, tak­ing his to­tal to 16 in the past three games.

Chris Keilar and Darcy Lewis were other mul­ti­ple scor­ers and Har­ley Hunter and Ad­di­son Mil­ner were best play­ers along with Brad Keilar and Bai­ley Veale.

This week the in-form Mag­pies host SMW Rovers. Rovers, sit­ting on one win from four games, have had a cou­ple of close games and on Sat­ur­day lost to Glen­thomp­son-dunkeld by a goal.

Although the Rams led all the way, a last-minute fight back from the Rovers al­most got them over the line.

Liam Baker and Jar­ryd Un­der­wood were the only two mul­ti­ple goal-scor­ers, while Ge­or­dan Mclough­lan was best for the Bull­dogs. Dan Cur­ran and Ben Nankervis pro­vided plenty of strength in de­fence.

At the south­ern end of the league, Cara­mut trav­els to Macarthur to take on the Ea­gles with both teams search­ing for their first win for the sea­son.

Both suf­fered heavy losses in round four with Moys­ton-willaura beat­ing Hawkes­dalemacarthur by 10 goals and Woorn­doo-mort­lake claim­ing vic­tory over Cara­mut by more than 17 goals. Aaron Seabrook con­tin­ued his good form for Hawkes­dalemacarthur and with Luke Gow, Kyle Smit­ten and Brady Pur­cell also play­ing well, they will hope they can come away with the four points.

Stand­ing in their way will be Cara­mut play­ers James Tem­ple­ton, Luke Austin, Bray­den Burgess and James Coglan­west, who will not go down with­out a fight.

In other games, Great Western is com­ing off its first loss of the sea­son, against Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum by 19 points and will play Glen­thomp­son-dunkeld, Ararat Ea­gles host Moys­ton-willaura and Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum plays Pen­shurst.

With Woorn­doo-mort­lake sit­ting sixth and Taty­oon sev­enth on the lad­der on eight points each, both teams will be keen to gain a four-point ad­van­tage.
