KI Football – Wisanger wins at Parndana | Photos

Wisanger travelled to Parndana for their third contest of the year on Saturday.

It was very wet but the wind was only slight favouring the northern end. Wisanger having the wind first started well handling the conditions better and they kicked five goals to one, through great work in the center from Reece Boulden and Dylan Lockett combining with Sam Clifford up forward.

The second quarter saw Parndana improving around the ground and they went to the half time break just six points down. Frank May had lifted at half back and he and Shaun Laffin, in his 250th game, were having a great tussle.

Wisanger started the third the same way as they did in the first and again got out to a 3-goal lead. They were dominating the ruck and the likes of Luke Stewart and Dylan were driving them forward.

Parndana started the last with hard running and good teamwork to slowly erode the margin to two goals.

Steve Obrien in the ruck was having an influence and Zach Trethewey and Ben Gaskin were driving the Roosters forward.

People were thinking here we go again another draw looming but Wisanger steadied through goals to Sam Clifford and Khyal Hodge and they ran out 3-goal winners. – Dave Christiansen

Kingscote rolls on

Western Districts having at the last minute found their jumpers, began the game well to outplay Kingscote and establish a narrow lead at quarter time in drizzling rain.

Kingscote lifted their game in the second quarter, made better use of opportunities and established a handy lead at the long break in what had become a wet and chilly contest. 

Scores at half time K 10-9 WD 5-1.

WD made it hard for Kingscote to score in the third quarter, but pressure of forward entries saw Kingscote advance to 14-14 at 3/4 time, while WD had not added to their score.

WD opened the final quarter with desperation and scored the opening three goals.  this stung the Kingscote boys and their efforts picked up.

The WD outfit, much depleted, never gave up working hard to their credit, while Kingscote posted a warning for future contests. Final score K 17-17 WD 8-3
