Grand Final at Kapunda
Winner of Second Semi-fnal v Winner of Preliminary Final
TANUNDA overcame Barossa District by
21 points in the Barossa, Light & Gawler
Football Association under 15 first
semi-final on the weekend.
The well-drilled Magpies ran the Bulldogs off
their feet to advance to the preliminary final,
where they will face the loser of this Saturday's
second semi-final between Nuriootpa and South
A stalemate first quarter had scores tied at the
break and, with light rain setting in, conditions
were a challenge for both sides.
However, the Pies pushed ahead in the second
term, kicking two unanswered goals, to take an
11-point lead into half-time.
Tanunda was playing with superior skill, taking
time to hit targets with class and finesse, while the
Dogs blazed away with rushed kicks and wasted
numerous opportunities going into attack.
Patrick Mudge was playing a good captain's
game for the Pies, bursting through the midfield
with numerous clearances, which allowed
team-mate Jordan Brook to penetrate the
The Pies kept classy Bulldogs' midfielder Will
Cameron relatively quiet, leaving skipper Andrew
Casboult room to dominate, while utility Dougal
Grieve was also influential around the ground and
helped claw the Dogs back to within nine points at
the final change.
However, Tanunda replied with two goals, with no
response forthcoming from the tired Bulldogs, to
take the deserved win.
Brook led the Pies' scoring with three goals, while
team-mates Joshua Clasohm and Jez McLennan
For the Dogs, Ethan Gant and Tyson Liebelt were
among the better performers.
Tim Cameron Bombers stave of South
Lions nearly pull of massive comeback
After the match, which saw Kapunda lead
by 55 points at quarter-time, Bombers'
coach Mick McCarthy praised his team for
showing fight when South took the lead late
in the game.
"We started really well and I'm happy we
responded well to a challenge," McCarthy
"It's always good to win a final and we are
looking forward to playing in a couple of
The Bombers got off to a flying start with
midfielder Ben O'Donohue quickly kicking
the opening goal.
The majors kept flowing for Kapunda, with
key forwards Justin Zanandrea, Wes Farley
and young gun Brad Matters also getting a
piece of the action.
Adam Turrell was lively in the ruck,
winning a majority of the taps and feeding
the ball to Kapunda's on-ball brigade as the
Bombers simply outclassed their opponents.
The second quarter saw the Lions surge and
Kapunda failed to kick a goal for the term.
Tall timber Ben Halliday and Chris
Musolino were dynamic up forward and
caused many headaches for the Kapunda
defence as the Lions worked back into the
South Gawler coach Scott Lee moved
big-bodied defender Heath Lawry into the
ruck to try and stem Turrell's influence on
the game, while young midfielders Nathan
Bartsch and Patrick White began to find
some footy and impact the scoreboard for
Only the resolve of defenders Paul
Anderson and Brad Valentine ensured
Kapunda remained 13 points ahead at the
The momentum shifted back in Kapunda's
favour at the start of the third term.
Valentine was instrumental down back for
the Bombers, and made it hard for the Lions
to move the ball into their forward 50,
while Matters continued to find space up
Kapunda extended the lead to a comfortable
25 points heading into the last quarter,
however South looked to have plenty more
Remarkably, the Lions took the lead late in
the game, before the Bombers extinguished
the fightback with two final goals.
Zanandrea bagged five goals for the
Bombers, while Matters and Farley kicked
four and three goals, respectively.
South's Chris Musolino also had a big day
out, slotting four majors, while Ben Halliday
chimed in with three.
Kapunda will face the loser of Saturday's
second semi, between Nuriootpa and
Gawler Central, in the preliminary final at
Centennial Park next weekend.
