KIFL Round 18 - Kingscote wins heading into finals | PHOTOS

Last home game before finals with Wisanger Panthers hosting the Kingscote Hounds.

In the other matches at Penneshaw, the A Grade saw Parndana beat Dudley United but in the Reserves, Dudley United were victorious.

As always for as far as you could see at Wisanger, all you could see was kids playing their last game of Auskick and U12s for the year.

There would have been close to 100 kids, which is good for the future of our football.

Colts was a one-sided affair with the mercy rule being enforced at half time with Kingscote running out the winners 28.12 to Wisanger 6 behinds.

The Reserves was a scrappy game to start with, with both teams turning the ball over making it hard for themselves to take control of the game.

Kingscote had three kids from Colts come up and play and play they did winning some contests and using the ball with good skills.

As the game progressed, Wisanger slowly took control and eventually ran out comfortable winners by seven goals 13.11 to 6.7 putting them into top position to play Western Districts next week.

The A Grade was set up to be a cracker with the winner potentially finishing in second place and having the double chance.

All year the A Grade Competition has been even and on any given day any side could win.

From both sides there was plenty of pressure, tackles and a few big hits and the intensity was good to see.

The game was close all day with only a goal or two separately the teams. Wisanger seemed to be in control in the first half with a two and a half goal lead at half time.

Both teams came out after the break looking lively and the atmosphere was like finals footy.

It went goal for goal with neither team looking like kicking away. Kingscote eventually holding on to win by six points 13.8 to 12.8.

Kingscote will meet Wisanger again in the second semi-final having being beaten on percentage to second place by Parndana.

Good luck to all clubs and teams playing in the finals. - Craig Turner
