A seven goal third term by Mount Compass clinched the game on Saturday against Strathalbyn. The Dogs always had the answers leading at each break and was brilliantly led by captain Nick Brokenshire, until he was injured late in the last term.

Mount Compass started the better with Daniel and Michael Corbett winning the middle under the hands of Hoban. James was having a great duel with the Compass big man and his relationship with onballer Lawson was a real positive for the Roosters.

Parsons was dominating up forward for the Dogs, as Pegler had the measure of Hill, and Hickey was controlling Pinyon.

However it was the defence of Brokenshire, Tom Corbett, Camac, Vitkunas and McKenzie which did not allow the Roosters to hit the scoreboard in a dangerous manner.

Simounds presented all day with Christie, but they had no help. Lawson, Tucker and George were up against too many hungry Dogs and this enabled Compass to lead at each break and have a seven goal to one third term and open up a 62 point lead at the last change.

There were no goals scored in the last and Mount Compass won by 62 points. Green, Brokenshire, Daniel, Parsons, Davis and M Corbett had good days for Compass. For Strath none tried harder than Lawson, James, Christie, Pegler, Hickey, Tucker and George.
