Strong start for Tigers
Waikerie overcame a terrible
first quarter to smash Loxton
by 63 points in the final round
of Riverland A grade football at
Waikerie on Saturday.
An undermanned Loxton came out of
the blocks strongly, kicking with the aid
of a strong breeze.
The Tigers kicked the first six goals of
the match, while Waikerie missed several
set shots to finish the quarter goalless.
Rhys Mitchell was in great form up
front as Loxton led by 35 points at the first
change and an upset was in the air.
Loxton's Ash Montgomery and
Waikerie's Reid Beeching were having
a great duel in the ruck, while young
Magpie Elliott Modra was playing his
best game of the season on the forward
However, it was not long before Waikerie
had wrestled back the lead.
The Magpies kicked six goals in about
10 minutes of play, despite the Tigers
flooding the Magpie forward line.
Loxton tried to cut off Jim Thomson by
sitting players in front of him, but the goal
sneak still managed to kick four goals for
Even Montgomery was forced to play
loose in defence as the Tigers struggled
to combat Waikerie's forwards and the
Loxton's lead was quickly eroded and
Waikerie went to the half time break
leading by nine points in a stunning turn-
After half time it was one-way footy,
despite Loxton kicking with the breeze.
Thomson and Shaun Steele had plenty
of the ball up forward, Tristan Geehman
dominated his wing and Elliott remained
dangerous on his flank.
Tim Bevan was getting plenty of the
ball in the midfield, doing what he liked
as Waikerie increased its lead to 24 points
at the final change.
Chris Papageorgiou and Nick Uren did
their best to stem the tide for Loxton, but
the Tigers were unable to get the ball past
Steven Braun at centre half back, with the
big man playing his one of his best games
for the season.
Waikerie could have won by more, but
finished the game with seven behinds in
Geehmann was terrific for Waikerie,
along with Steele, Thomson (seven goals),
Braun and Modra.

Renmark s big victory
by Mackenzie Bristow
Renmark finished the
home and away season in
good fashion with a 46-
point win over Berri in
Riverland A grade football
at Renmark on Saturday.
Four goals to Liam Jackson
and Josh Warnock saw the
Rovers do the job, while Berri
full forward Andy Hyland
The Rovers ran the ball
out of the backline brilliantly
through Brandon Persinos and
Trevor Thorpe. Berri was get-
ting the ball in to its forward
line enough, but it was coming
straight back out through some
great work from Kim Polst and
The second quarter saw
Renmark continue to dominate
play but some resolute defence
from Berri kept the Rovers to
only four goals.
The Demons kicked the last
four goals of the quarter to give
themselves a slim chance going
into the last.
Renmark coach John Persinos
implored his players to finish
the job with the reward of the
double chance still a possibility.
In the final quarter the game
opened up as both teams tired.
There were plenty of forward 50
entries, but neither team had that
touch of class to finish the job
until Brandon Persinos slotted
one at the 16-minute mark.
A consolation goal from
Berri's Daniel Marner closed
out a lacklustre second half.
The Demons finished their
season in fifth position and will
not take part in finals action,
while the Rovers meet Waikerie
in a mouth-watering elimination
final this Sunday.
