KEILOR will take on undefeated Aberfeldie in this weekend’s EDFL Women’s - Premier Grand Final at Windy Hill after proving too good for Hillside on Saturday.

Roys Win Sewell Reserve Shoot-Out

GLENROY booked itself a third season in Strathmore Community Bank Premier Division with an entertaining 16-point win over Essendon Doutta Stars on Saturday.

In what was a somewhat bizarre first half, the Stars booted seven unanswered goals in the opening quarter before the Roys returned the favour with seven of their own in the second.

Glenroy then kicked another seven in the third quarter to lead by 16 points at the final change before managing to hold Douttas at bay in a game that concluded with a total of 35 combined goals.

Veteran forward Adam Winter finished with four goals, as did Tyson Lever in his first game of the season.

At the other end, Mitch Jensen ended the day with five of his side’s 16 majors, with Alex Boyse and Marcus Calvaresi each contributing two of their own.

Both clubs are now out of relegation danger but will not feature in this year’s finals series.

Roos Relegated To Division 2

OAK Park will be a Strathmore Community Bank Division 2 club in 2020.

The Kangaroos’ relegation from Division 1 was confirmed with a 38-point loss to Taylors Lakes at Lionheart Reserve on Saturday.

The Lions got an early jump on Oak Park with five goals to one in the opening quarter and from there, the game was played on their terms.

Oak Park could only muster four goals for the day and was rather wasteful in front of goal, finishing with 15 behinds.

But the Lions were just as bad, kicking 10.17.

Jake Hobbs starred up forward with four goals while Mark Polycarpou was the best player on the ground in what was Taylors Lakes’ final game of the season.

Oak Park will take on West Coburg in what is a dead rubber for both clubs in the final round this weekend.

Covelli Snags 11 As Bears Make Maiden Finals

BURNSIDE Heights forward Josh Covelli (pictured) stunningly claimed the Strathmore Community Bank Division 2 goal kicking title in the final round of the home-and-away season on Saturday.

Covelli entered the weekend 10 goals adrift of Sunbury Kangaroo, Lachie Baddeley.

But with Baddeley on the sidelines for the Kangaroos’ win over Moonee Valley, Covelli returned to the Bears’ line-up after a three-week injury layoff and booted the 11 goals he needed to steal the goal kicking gong for the second year running.

It was an entertaining shoot-out between the Bears and Hadfield at Tenterfield Drive with 36 combined goals scored for the day.

Burnside Heights kicked six goals in each of the first two quarters to establish a 43-point half time lead and from there, managed to keep Hadfield at bay and collect a comfortable 74-point win.

The result confirmed Burnside Heights’ maiden senior men’s finals berth, with the Bears to take on Coburg Districts this Saturday in an Elimination Final.

The game will be this weekend’s EDFL Match of the Day radio game live from 2pm on 98.9 North West FM.
