RIVERLAND FOOTBALL SCOREBOARD
will be looking to
secure a premiership
this weekend, when
they take on BSR
in the A grade
final at Brown's Well
on the weekend.
last won a premiership in
1994, when they defeated
East Murray by a single
point, while their last
grand final appearance
was in 2004 when they
took on Lyrup.
Coach Corey Gilgen
said he was "pretty excit-
ed" for this weekend's
clash and was hoping to
get a win on the board for
"It's good to be in there
and have a crack... We've
had a pretty good year so
far, so it would be nice to
finish it off," Gilgen said.
"I guess you have to be
confident. Once you are
there, anything can hap-
Gilgen said it had been
a "great" season for his
first time coaching the
side, with the Warriors
losing once throughout
"From where the club
came from a couple of
years ago, to have enough
players this year and to
have support around the
club is really good," he
said. "It has been a good
fun season with a really
good bunch of blokes.
"We didn't aim to make
finals at the start of the
year, it was more about
good fun and a good sea-
son, but it has worked out
Terry Packer is likely to
miss this weekend's grand
final at Brown's Well.
Packer injured his knee
against BSR in the second
semi-final a week ago.
While the damage
was limited to carti-
lage, he was unable to
bend his leg this week
and is unlikely to play.
Coach Corey Gilgen said
Packer's chances were
"It's looking like he's
not going to come on as
his knee is still pretty
bad," he said. "It is unfor-
tunate for Terry as he had
a really good season."
Defender Joe Abdulla
will return to the Warriors.
Packer's knee injury
could be offset by a knee
injury to BSR star Troy
He injured his knee late
in Saturday's preliminary
final against Brown's
Well and hobbled off the
Warriors wage war

Struggle for Panthers
by Jack Kovacic
On a warm winter day,
Barmera-Monash ran over
the top of a spirited Loxton
North side by 41 points in the
Riverland A grade football
second semi-final at Waikerie
The Roos will now have a week
off ahead of the grand final.
Loxton North, on the other hand,
will have to defeat Waikerie if it is
to play in the big one.
Barmera-Monash won plenty of
the ball around the middle of the
ground early thanks to Aaron Dart
and Mal Greenwood.
This created opportunities up for-
ward which led to the Roos kicking
the first two goals of the day.
The first term ended up being
a shootout as the Panthers kicked
five straight goals, mostly from
midfielders pushing forward.
Michael Smart was also good for
the Roos until he went down with a
Although they had four more
scoring shots for the quarter, the
Roos only held a four-point lead at
A Ben Walter long bomb from
the boundary gave Loxton North
the lead a minute into the second
After kicking a goal in the first
term, Jake Smith provided a good
medium-sized option up forward
for the Roos, kicking two more in
Panther forward Barry Kaesler
also kicked two majors for the
Although they were inaccurate,
a few late goals to the Roos gave
them a very handy 23-point lead at
Loxton North's Daniel Proud
kicked the first goal of the second
half before his cousin Ryan kicked
another major not long after to peg
Barmera's lead back to two straight
After being quiet in the first half,
RFL leading goal-kicker and Roos'
full-forward Adam Grose kicked
three goals in less than 10 minutes
to give his team a 32-point three
quarter time lead and significantly
decrease the chances of a Loxton
Daniel Proud worked hard all day
for the Panthers and got rewarded
with his second goal of the day
early in the last quarter.
Ryan Langcake capped off per-
haps his best game for the year with
two goals in the final term to add to
his earlier goals and seal the game
for the Roos.
Barmera-Monash showed the
future of its forward line is in good
hands with a quarter of its goals
coming from Steve Burton and
Sam Butterworth, who are in their
first and second year of under 18s
always going to be tough for the
Panthers, conceding 15 more inside
50s than Barmera, with the Roos
handling the heat much better.
