Kangaroo Island Football League semi-finals for Colts | PHOTOS

A cool day greeted the Colts players for the Kangaroo Island Football League's double-header of semi final matches at Penneshaw on Saturday, September 12.

After the matches, the KIFL awarded the 2020 Pharmacy Medal for the best Colts player to Dudley United's Callum Willson.

Willson is only the third KI Colts player to win back-to-back Pharmacy Medals as he also took home the medal last year.

Parndana vs Kingscote

Parndana welcomed back a couple of players, hoping this would make them stronger. However, Kingscote got off to a flyer, winning all the centre clearances.

Korelle Wintinna played his best game for the year, damaging not just with his skills but also with his marking up forward.

Korelle kicked three of his seven goals in the first quarter helping put Parndana on the back foot.

Parndana kicked their first and only goal of the game late in the first quarter, with a centre clearance ending in the hands of Cooper Corcoran-Cox keeping Parndana's hopes up of a comeback.

This was short lived as Kingscote dominated the second quarter, the Florance boys getting plenty of kicks and their forwards finishing the job.

The game effectively over at half time with Kingscote kicking seven goals to Parndana's one point.

The second half continued in much the same way. Blake Florance shifted up forward and ended up kicking eight for the game.

The Parndana defence tried hard, ably led by Kaui Mauheni-Edwards, but any foray forward was quickly rebounded by the Kingscote defence.

The scoreboard had a similar feel about, Kingscote kicking 4, 7, 6 and 7 goals and will go into next weeks Preliminary full of confidence after a resounding 151-point win.

Dudley vs Wisanger

The Second Semi was also very one sided. Wisanger were always up against it after the Schofield boys were forced to pull out of the game due to illness.

Dudley straight away put their opponents on the back foot, moving the ball with great flair. Zac Keir continued his great form dominating the ruck, and feeding his midfield.

The midfield, in turn, had a field day with Rory Florance and Callum Willson having a lot of the ball. Fortunately for Wisanger it started steadily raining halfway through the second quarter, and this made ball handling difficult.

Duel Pharmacy Medallist, Callum Willson made the ball look dry with some nice grabs.

Dudley well in the box seat with a 62-point lead and keeping Wisanger goal less to half time.

With conditions still difficult, Dudley kept attacking but Wisanger were able to rebound well, ably led by Ryan Turner and Dylan Glynn.

Their attacking plays struggled with their usual tall targets not there, and the Dudley boys were able to counter attack easily.

Wisanger were much more competitive in the second half, and despite being kept goal less for the game they can take some confidence into their next game that they will have some bigger boys back and will at least have the next week to improve. - Ball Magnet
