Magpies win the flag
by Jack Kovacic
Led by Jim Thomson, Waikerie
won the 2014 Riverland A
grade football premiership after
defeating Barmera-Monash by
34 points at Berri on Saturday.
It was the Magpies’ first flag since
2008 and they came from 15 points

Five minutes into the game, Murray
Middleton took a mark and goaled to
give the Roos their first for the day.
Magpie Adam Braendler was the best
player on the ground in the first quarter,
providing plenty of run down the wing
and delivering the ball inside 50.
Jack Selfe and Jake Smith both stood
up early for the Roos and also played a
hand in setting up back-to-back goals
to teammates Lachie Middleton and
Adam Grose to help their side to an
After Middleton added his second
goal late, Barmera-Monash found itself
with a handy 15-point quarter time
lead. Barmera-Monash looked ready
to attack early in the second quarter,
but only managed a couple of behinds,
before Thomson kicked the next two
goals for the Magpies and reduced the
deficit to just five points.
After Justin Dellazoppa kicked two
late goals in as many minutes, the
Magpies had an eight-point half-time
lead – a good reward for their second
After Shaun Steele goaled twice in

Four-point grand final thriller
by Mackenzie Bristow
Renmark took out the
Riverland B grade football
premiership with a thrilling
four-point victory over
Waikerie on Saturday.
Waikerie was chasing its fifth
straight flag, however could
not pull it off, with Aaron Gill
awarded the best on ground
award for Renmark.
The Rovers came out hard,
hitting body after body and get-
ting the first goal through Brodie
Waikerie struggled to get the
ball into its forward 50 yet the
Rovers failed to capitalise, only
kicking one more goal for the
Lellmann scored that major,
dribbling one out of a stoppage
and bouncing over two players
in the goal square.
Waikerie came back well in
the second, kicking the first two
goals of the term.
Mitchell White led the way,
along with Michael Beelitz, tak-
ing a strong contested mark in
the goal square.
White kicked his second late,
but the Rovers still led by one
point at half time.
The third quarter was as low
scoring as the first two, with only
one goal being kicked each way.
Waikerie’s major came first with
Edward Griffen running into an
open goal square.
However, Renmark replied
through Redpath kicking his sec-
ond. Gill was at his creative best
for Renmark, rarely wasting a
possession and setting up play.
That did not seem to affect
the Rovers who were even with
Magpies at three quarter time.
The Magpies got the first goal
of the quarter though Griffen, but
Renmark got an immediate reply
with Ben Wagnitz receiving a
handball on the goal line and
putting it through.
The Rovers nailed the final goal
of the game at the eight-minute
mark, putting them ahead.
Yet again it was Redpath doing
the damage with a clever banana
from the boundary.
The Magpies kept fighting
with multiple forward 50 entries
late, but just could not buy the
goal they so desperately wanted.
After some confusion over an
umpiring decision, Waikerie had
an unlikely chance to win the
game with a mark after the siren
from outside 50 metres.
But, the resultant kick did not
carry the distance and Renmark
claimed the points.
Brodie Redpath kicked three
goals for the Rovers, B grade
medallist Gill had another great
game and Aaron Camplin, who
went into the game carrying
an injury, had a solid game in
defence and imposed himself on
the contest with his physicality.
Nettelbeck played a ripper for
the Magpies, making a remark-
able comeback from a heavy
knock, while White and Griffen
were their multiple goal kickers.
