Perfect weather conditions greeted the players at Parndana on Saturday for the A Grade match between Wisanger and Parndana.
The undefeated Roosters were missing a number of regular players so it set the scene for an even contest.
It was Wisanger who did the scoring early with Boomer and Hutchy combining well in the centre and their big men Hodgy and Laff looking ominous up forward.
If it wasn't for inaccuracy in front of goals they could have put the game away in the 1st quarter, scores W 3-8 to P 1-0.
Parndana regrouped at quarter time and it was their turn to control the game with the Gaskin boys and Trad McMulkin playing well in the midfield aided by Zach Trethewey who was putting his accurate kicking skills to good use. Half time the scores were even.
The second half was an even and enthralling contest to watch. Parndana looked to have a slight advantage but missed a few easy shots on goal early in the final quarter, which cost them dearly when in the final 10 minutes a determined Panthers outfit hungry for victory finished the game with a couple of match-winning goals to Anthony Anderson and Hodgy.
A great game to watch which could have gone either way, well done Wisanger.
Kingscote vs Western Districts
The first quarter saw Western District open strongly with good teamwork and understanding that fed their forwards regularly. The Kingscote boys were chasing jumpers and the ball when it got forward was rapidly sent the other way. Coulson for Western Districts was marking and kicking faultlessly so that at quarter time Wonks had scored 6.1 to zero.
Kingscote set out with much more determination and were able to outscore the west enders through Corby and Colman, so that the game looked more even with the half time scores WD 8.1 to Kingscote 4.1.
Rain started during the third quarter and the overall body strength of the Wonks boys, coupled with excellent team work saw them pull away from the Dogs, who while they never stopped trying were sorely outgunned. The final tally of WD 14.7 to K 6.7 pretty well summed up the contest. - Daniel Butler
