THE 2020 Mid South Eastern Junior Football League season continued on Saturday with matches played at three separate venues.
It was a busy day at Kalangadoo, with junior matches played before the senior Limestone Coast Football League.
The Magpies’ Senior Colts team failed to claim a win in front of their home fans against Nangwarry.
After a tight first term, the Saints marched away to a 48-point victory.
Zaidyn Tweed kicked three goals, while Bailey Lindner also scored a pair to win best-on-ground honours.
Glencoe also ran onto its home turf, but managed to collect a win against Hatherleigh.
The Eagles led by five points at the main break, but the Murphies broke the game open in the third quarter with five unanswered goals.
Hatherleigh had no response and lost by 30 points.
Kyle Maney scored three majors and Ben Weedon was named best on ground for Glencoe, while the Eagles’ leader was Cameron Atkinson.
The opening Senior Colts clash at Kongorong was between Tantanoola and Mount Burr.
A scoreless first quarter left the Tigers on the back foot and they struggled to catch the Mozzies.
Muhammadrizo Abduvahobov booted three majors and Taylor Allen secured top votes to lead Mount Burr to a 56-30 win.
Sam Jennings played an important role in Tantanoola’s stronger second half.
Kongorong utilised its home conditions to triumph against Robe.
A high-scoring third term allowed the Hawks to fly away from the Roosters after just five points split the pair after the first half.
Jake Whitty was Kongorong’s best player in the 76-25 win, while Brandon Nicolle stood out for Robe with two goals.
The big wins continued in the second round of the Junior Colts season.
Nangwarry proved elusive for Kalangadoo during the pair’s battle.
A fast start from the Saints opened up a commanding lead and the team secured a 53-14 win after the game finished with a scoreless fourth quarter.
Daniel Stone scored the Magpies’ only two goals, while Archer Virtanen kicked three to be named as Nangawarry’s best.
Glencoe’s hopes of a home victory against Hatherleigh were dashed after a scoreless opening quarter.
The Murphies managed to kick their only two goals for the game in the second stanza, as the Eagles cruised to a 53-point win.
Kaleb Price was Glencoe’s only goal scorer, while Oliver Fitzgerald led Hatherleigh’s charge.
Kongorong suffered a challenging home game against Robe.
The Hawks did not hit the scoreboard until the third quarter with a goal, which arrived after the Roosters already kicked 14 majors.
Robe eventually raced past triple figures and scored a 110-point win.
Joseph Ciabattoni and James Dutton had a field day with five goals each, while Ryan Angelino was Kongorong’s most notable player.
The closest Junior Colts game was between Tantanoola and Mount Burr.
After the Tigers enjoyed a 34-point lead at the main break, they slowed in the second half and only managed one more goal.
The Mozzies tired to catch up, but could only close within 13 points as Tantanoola held on.
Cade Kelly scored three majors to claim top votes for the victors and Mount Burr’s best player was Brady Sharp.
Round three will be played at Tantanoola and Hatherleigh.
