Willunga’s men’s side were on the other end of their result, with Strathalbyn providing the upset of the round in a two-point thriller (7.12 54 to 7.10 52). 

Other results from the mens saw the rest of the round go to plan for the favourites, with four of the top five getting wins.

Blackwood’s finals hopes have been ended in extraordinary fashion, after they drew their clash with Onkaparinga Valley in Round 16 Division One action in the Hills Football League. 

The Woods and Dogs were neck and neck all day in a low-scoring scrap, fittingly sharing the points (5.9 39 to 5.9 39) but knocking Blackwood out of contention. 

Other matches from the round saw the rest of the top five take out wins against their bottom five opponents. 


The River Murray top five is now locked in with two rounds to play, after the Coorong Cats comfortably beat Rambler (13.19 97 to 4.7 31), and Mypolonga thrashed Mannum (18.14 122 to 5.1 31) in Round 16 action on Saturday.

The Roosters were never in their clash with Cats, and the 66-point loss means they’ll need the most unlikely of fortnights to make the finals. 

The Tigers did their part with ease to confirm their place in the top five, with Jack Kluske and Nick Hombsch kicking 10 goals between them in their 91-point win.
