Mag­pies swoop on Ea­gles

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport - BY JONATHAN BOX

On a cold, wet day of Minin­era and Dis­trict foot­ball, Great West­ern proved too good for SMW Rovers to re­main un­beaten, Pen­shurst claimed the im­por­tant scalp of Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum and Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac had a mas­sive win over the strug­gling Ararat Ea­gles.

The Mag­pies in­flicted the big­gest margin of de­feat for the Ea­gles so far this sea­son when they scored 50.23 (323) to just two points.

James Spicer had plenty of the foot­ball in front of goals, boot­ing 16 ma­jors, while Chris Keilar and Nigel Otto kicked 15 be­tween them.

Har­ley Hunter and Jhye Kenna were named best on ground.

It might be a sim­i­lar story this week when the Mag­pies host Hawkes­dale-mcarthur, which has also been strug­gling de­spite notch­ing a win against Moys­ton-wil­laura at the week­end.

The Ea­gles led from the start against the Pu­mas, with Paddy Kelly and Lach­lan

Re­ich­man boot­ing three goals each to fea­ture along­side Jack Sproal and Jamie Hetheringt­on in the best play­ers; how­ever, their cel­e­bra­tions might be cut short this week­end against the Mag­pies.

SMW Rovers host Glen­thomp­son­dunkeld on Satur­day, with both com­ing off losses at the week­end.

Both teams have three wins for the sea­son but nei­ther has taken a big scalp.

Ian Wors­fold, Alex Mc­carthy and Darcy Os­borne were the best play­ers for the Bull­dogs in their loss to Great West­ern, while for the Rams it was Nathan Lester, Lach­lan Seed and Mitchell John­son in a loss to Taty­oon.

Bull­dog Jar­ryd Un­der­wood and Ram Adam Cameron kicked four goals for their re­spec­tive teams set­ting the stage for a great match be­tween two well­matched teams.

In other games, Cara­mut plays Taty­oon, Pen­shurst should have no trou­ble against Ararat Ea­gles, Moys­ton-wil­laura hosts Great West­ern and it should be a good con­test be­tween Woorn­doo-mort­lake and Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum.
