The third quarter began with two Kingscote majors but a more determined Wisanger turned the game into more of an arm wrestle, although the goal tally continued to mount.
Wisanger was still finding it difficult to move the ball forward and at three quarter time was looking down the barrel of the task ahead. Kingscote 15.5, Wisanger 4.4.
