TRINITY Old Scholars re-
turned to the winners’ list with
a narrow 10-point victory over a
much-improved Central United
in the South Australian Amateur
Football League’s division six on
Playing at Trinity College, another
slow start saw the Old Scholars
trailing at the first break.
Very little separated the sides
during the middle terms, as the
margin rarely exceeded a couple of
kicks either way.
Trinity big man Adrian Zorich
spent more time in the ruck than
he has all year and relished the
opportunity, stamping his authority
on the contest.
Ryan Clarke and Mitch Dearing
also continued their impressive
seasons, but at three-quarter-
time United still clung to a narrow
After a see-sawing last quarter
the Old Scholars hit the front,
before Zorich capped off his best-
on-ground performance by putting
through the sealer late in the term.
Trinity forward Alex Cotter
finished with four goals, which sees
him rise to the top of the division
six goal-kickers’ list.
The win puts Trinity two games
clear in third spot on the ladder.
It was a very different story in the
reserves, as Trinity ran away with
a very comfortable 185-point win
over Central United.
A dozen individual goal-kickers
highlighted the home side’s even
spread of contributors.
Club president Carl Teusner
led the way with six majors, while
Matt Gagliardi and Jordan Smith
dominated through the middle of
The big win was a fitting way to
celebrate club stalwart Ryan Palmer’s
150th game; he is only the fifth Old
Scholar to reach the milestone.
Inaccurate kicking in front of goal
proved costly for Trinity’s C grade,
which lost to PHOS Camden by 10
Ben Grose was again Trinity’s best
player, finding plenty of the footy
and hitting the scoreboard with
Owls fall short
Angle Vale has fallen 20 points
short of an upset win over ladder
leaders Houghton Districts in
division seven on Saturday.
The Owls trailed by just four
points heading into the final term,
before the Raiders flexed their might
to run away with victory.
Angle Vale’s Scott Burgess put
in one of his best performances of
the season, while Matthew Rogan
finished with a handy two goals.
It was not all good news, however,
with star recruit Adam Varcoe going
down with a serious injury early in
The result was significantly
different in the reserves, with Angle
Vale going down to Houghton
Districts by 118 points.
The Owls trailed at every break as
Raiders’ forward Robert Allen put
on a show, booting 10 goals.
Steven Emes was Angle Vale’s best
player, finishing with three majors.

Two Wells overcoming
by 43 points in the Ad-
elaide Plains Football
League on Saturday.
Rooster Nathan Rose had
his radar on target, kicking
an impressive six goals from
seven shots, but the same
could not be said for his
team-mates, who struggled
to split the big sticks early
in the contest, resulting in
16 behinds for the game.
“Our efficiency in front
of goal wasn’t very good,”
Two Wells, coach Neville
“At one stage we were
4.10 to three goals, but we
should have probably been
10.4 to three goals.
“In general play it was
a good win, but for the
amount of forward entries
we had, to score only 12
goals was probably the

rate and winning the footy,
it was good.”
Playing at home, it was
Two Wells that shot out of
the blocks to take a 16-point
lead at the first break.
On-baller Ned Seccafien
was having his usual influence
through the middle of the ground,
while in-form swingman Andrew
Hardiman continued his stellar
season across half-back.
“He’s in his career best form,”
Seccafien said of Hardiman’s
“I said to him at the start of the
year ‘you probably won’t play in
the same spot two weeks in a row’.
“The previous week he was at
full back on Brendon Niklaus

he was at centre-half-back and
next week he might be at centre-
“But that’s where I see his role
in our team, that depending who
we’re playing determines where
he’ll be playing.”
The Eagles rallied to win the
second quarter, booting two goals
to one, to cut the margin to just 13
points at half-time.
First-gamer Jamahl McKenzie
was lively up forward for
Hummocks and had good support
from Rob Bellamy.

missed multiple chances, before
