South West Win Game Two

The Apprentice & Traineeship Colts team have won their second game of the Nutrien Ag Country Championships, with a hard fought twelve point win over Great Southern at Rushton Park on Thursday afternoon.

After losing earlier in the day, the Colts team needed to win to remain in the hunt for the Grand Final, and unlike the first game they started well and put two very quick goals on the board.  Wayward kicking by Great Southern proved costly as the SWFL took a seven point lead into the half time break.

Three further goals in the second half put the SWFL in a great position, but a late goal to Great Southern narrowed the margin to two goals and was costly from a percentage stand point.

Jude Mazzucchelli was the best player for the South West in the match, and pleasingly there were six different goal scorers giving the team many avenues to goal.

After day one, South West sit fifth on percentage with Peel the only team to win both games.  SWFL will play Peel in the final game of the round robin tomorrow, but will need to beat Regional Districts first to make the final match of the Championship a live fixture to have any chance of making the Grand Final.
