Solomontown 109 D South Augusta 65
The match of the round proved a bit of a fizzer after half time as the Solly juggernaut rolled on.
The Cats lead by only two points at half time in a low scoring affair and the game seemed poised for a tight finish.
A seven goal to two third quarter in favour of Solly blew that motion out of the park as a six goal three quarter time lead ended up a 44 point victory to the blue-and-whites.
Davey and McIntyre kicked three a piece and Francis, who was feeling a little bit out of touch, hit back hard with a solid best-on-ground performance.
West 97 D Port 51
Port showed some character that has been missing as of late in a spirited 46 point loss to West.
Port started the game strongly and at half time were only 22 points down. In previous weeks this would blow out in the second half but a spirited Port outfit hit back in the third and the game was in the balance at the final change with West leading by 12 points.
The final challenge proved too much for Port as West dominated the final term keeping Port scoreless.
Wayehill was named Port’s best in a game that showed some pleasing improvement for the dogs.
Central 35 DEF BY Lions 70

The Lions switched on the flair in the final term adding six goals to a behind and running out comfortable winners. Bradley celebrated game 201 with five goals and Fuller was deemed best afield for the Lions.
