KANIVA-LEEOR United has extended its winning streak to four matches after thrashing Kybybolite by 107 points on the road on Saturday.
An eight-goal first term was the catalyst for the Cougars’ big win, before the visitors finished off with an 11-goal final quarter to run out 28.14 (182) to 11.9 (75) winners.
But Cougars coach Neil Reeve said his side could still improve
“Although the scoreboard was what it was, we still didn’t play our best footy,” he said.
“We showed patches of how good we can be, but also how bad we can be.” Reeve’s men lost the third quarter – kicking two goals but conceding three.
Dylan Williams kicked five goals, Reeve kicked four – all in the final term – and 11 other players split the middle – five of those on two or more occasions.
Key forward Leigh Ryan was one of those players, kicking three first-quarter goals before injuring a hamstring.
Reeve said his side had a number of stand-out performers.
“Paul Adlington has hit a bit of a purple patch, Dylan Williams again was fantastic and Tim Boyd was good through the midfield,” he said.
Lachie Seed made a successful return from injury, while Reeve also praised the performance of skipper Jonno Hicks on Kybybolite forward Scott Carberry, who kicked seven.
Bordertown moved to the top of the table with a 86-point win over Border Districts at Frances.
The visitors extended their advantage at every change on their way to a 22.12 (144) to 8.10 (58) win.
Jed Jarrett booted five goals for the Roosters, while Elijah Ware kicked four for the Eagles and Corey Burr was named in the top two players for the fifth game in succession.
In other results, Keith accounted for Naracoorte by 31 points, Padthaway overran Lucindale to claim a 25-point win and Mundulla smashed Kingston by 84 points.
