Thank goodness for Strathalbyn. Their win over McLaren has kept their season alive and maintains interest on what team will make the final five in season 2019.
What a great win by Strathalbyn. A loss would have seen the Roosters fall two games behind, but now it is level with McLaren in fifth spot. Langhorne Creek were ruthless against the Magpies and won by 91 points. In other games Victor Harbor defeated Myponga/Sellicks, Mount Compass disposed of Encounter Bay and Willunga rolled Yankalilla.
Round 15 has two great games, which will impact on the make up of the five.
How good are Strathalbyn? We will find out on Saturday as they play Mount Compass. Stop Pinyon and Ziggy Vitkunas, you stop the Dogs from scoring, but Rooster coach Todd Price knows the best way to stop them, is to stop the supply. James is back and always rucks well against Hoban and Sam Elliott and Tucker are in ball winning form.
Kiss Of Death - Strathalbyn by 1 point.
Langhorne Creek travel to Willunga and this is a battle between the two best ball users in the competition when allowed space. Kellock, Sellar and Derham are stars and Perrey is a true leader, while the Demons have Scanlan, Renney, Alexopoulos, Lee and Burdett in great form. The ruck duel between Bass and Sellar will be worth the admission.
Kiss Of Death - Langhorne Creek by 7 points.
Encounter Bay will return to the winner's list when they meet Goolwa/Port Elliot. James Fry is resilient, tough, and skillful and Tom Neville played his best game for the Magpies last Saturday. The Bays have some great kids in Marshall, Bonnes, Fyfe and Bradford. Kiss Of Death - Encounter Bay by 44 points.
Victor Harbor meet Yankalilla and will not want to take the Tigers easily. Jed Durdin will be a great match up for Bartlett. Kiss Of Death - Victor Harbor by 19 points.
McLaren will bounce back against Myponga/Sellicks, but you have to admire the efforts of Hill and Ogilvie.
Kiss Of Death - McLaren by 63 points.
