Top three firm up in Minin­era

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport - BY JONATHAN BOX

With only two rounds left in Minin­era and Dis­trict Foot­ball League’s home-and-away com­pe­ti­tion, teams sit­ting in the top three po­si­tions on the lad­der will most likely re­main there un­til fi­nals.

The group has a two-game buf­fer from fourth-placed Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac.

Although Pen­shurst, Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum and Great Western will fin­ish in the top spots, the or­der in which

they will fea­ture is still up for change. Only four points sep­a­rate the three.

All eyes will be on Taty­oon, Woorn­doo-mort­lake and Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac to see which teams will snare the fi­nal two spots in the fi­nals up for grabs.

Match of the round this week­end will be be­tween the Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac Mag­pies and Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum.

The Mag­pies need a win to stay in touch with fi­nals whereas a win for the Demons would keep them in con­tention for top spot.

The Mag­pies last week put them­selves back into the top five with a good win over Cara­mut.

Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac came out strongly in the first quar­ter and showed no signs of slow­ing in the one-sided af­fair, com­ing away a 124-point win­ner.

Timothy Carter kicked five goals for the black and white to sneak into the best, while it was Harley Hunter who again shone for the home team.

James Spicer, Ad­di­son Mil­ner, James Anag­nos­tou and An­gus Chirn­side rounded out the bet­ter play­ers on the day and they will again be look­ing to per­form well to hone them­selves for the best chance of a cru­cial win.

Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum also had a con­vinc­ing win, over Moys­ton-willaura, by just un­der 150 points.

The Demons kicked away in the first, hav­ing a larger score at quar­ter time than the Pu­mas ended the game with, Dar­ren Cook, Ri­ley Brown and Michael Lock­yer kick­ing 17 goals be­tween them to find them­selves all in the best.

They were joined with Beau Ketchen and Jack Pitts, but it was Thomas Mil­lard hit­ting his straps at the right end of the sea­son, who took out be­ston-ground hon­ours.

In other games, Cara­mut hosts Pen­shurst, Glen­thomp­son-dunkeld trav­els to Great Western, Hawkes­dale-macarthur and SMW Rovers do bat­tle at Hawkes­dale, Taty­oon should have no trou­ble when it hosts Moys­ton-willaura and Woorn­doo-mort­lake will be look­ing for a good win against Ararat Ea­gles to give them a chance of get­ting a spot in the top five.
