Koonibba wins again to move clear at the top

Koonibba surged six points clear with its top-of-the table A grade Far West football success against Western United on Saturday.

Inaccuracy in front of goal did not have an effect on the Roosters as they claimed a 26-point victory, winning 11-28 (94) to 11-2 (68).

Clayton Milera, Andrew Cox and Jesse Lennon all booted two goals for Koonibba, while Jarden Stoetzer put three through the sticks for the Tigers.

Only five points separated the sides at quarter-time, with Koonibba then able to build on that lead in the second quarter with 3-8 to Western United’s two goals taking their half-time lead up to 19 points.

The two sides could not have shown a greater contrast in front of goal in the third quarter as the Tigers scored four goals to go to 9-0, while Koonibba had the majority of shots but went into the last break 8-20 to see its lead reduced to 14 points.

Three goals to two in the final quarter helped Koonibba continue their perfect start to the season and add further breathing space in first position.

Ceduna closed the gap to the Tigers to four points with a commanding 120-point triumph over Thevenard.

Impressive displays in the second and fourth quarters helped the Blues to the 22-12 (144) to 3-6 (24) result, after two consecutive defeats.

Jamahl Lebois and Kingsley Ware led the scoring with five and four goals respectively.

The Magpies started well to kick the first two goals of the game through Kyle Penna and Drew Allen but Ceduna took a three-goal lead into the first break

The visitors did most of their damage in the second term as Thevenard added just one point, while Ceduna bagged 6-3 to lead by 56 points at the main break.

Lebois grabbed three goals in the third quarter as Jarrad Trowbridge got Thevenard’s lone major of the second half.

The Blues registered seven goals to no Thevenard points in the fourth quarter to close out the big win.

Koonibba won by 78 points in a comfortable 16-6 (102) to 3-6 (24) B grade affair against Western United.

The Tigers kicked just three behinds to half-time, while Koonibba booted its way to a winning position with six goals.

Five goals in each of the remaining quarters gave the Roosters a seventh win of the season against the second-placed Tigers, who did get on the board but proved no match for the leaders.

Tyron Winfield was outstanding with six goals, while Shaun Betts got five.

Ceduna’s 11-12 (78) to 6-4 (40) victory over Thevenard has t hem within one win of the Tigers.

The Blues were three goals clear at quarter-time and Thevenard paid for two poor subsequent quarters as they could only add eight points.

Fifty-three points clear at the last break, Ceduna took their foot off the gas to enjoy a final 38-point margin.

Karel Sleep and Michael Pearce got three goals each.
