It couldn’t have been much tighter as SOUTH LAUNCESTON sealed the top spot and next week beating Longford 4.7 (31) to 4.6 (30) in windy conditions. Only one goal was scored after half-time, but the pressure and intensity were there as the defenses were tested all day. Bart McCulloch opened the scoring in the first minute and Luke Murfitt-Cowen responded as the day looked like a shootout between the two. But it turned out to be the opposite with four of eight goals scored in the first quarter, with the wind wreaking havoc throughout.

A 60-yard bomb from Jake Murfett put the Tigers at two points before he returned straight to defense, which was necessary in the 15th minute as South’s counterattack looked dangerous. A massive tackle from Josh Frankcombe repelled the attack as Longford produced a promising flood, bringing the crowded and vocal grandstand to his feet as parking around the ground was prohibited. But South’s defense called off the race and put the Tigers’ chances to bed. Jordan Tepper and Ben Webb were South Launceston’s best, while goaltenders Murfett and Connor Pearton shone for Longford. BRACKNELL took the mental advantage ahead of next week’s playoff final, beating DELORAINE 13.16 (94) to 10.6 (66).

The Redlegs led at every break, taking the lead to 33 points at the main break before Deloraine had a quarter-goal on her own to pull her down to 13. Josh Holland and Nick Mitchell were Bracknell’s best as the rookie Damon Howe waved the flag for Deloraine while Ashdyn Heathcoate and Lochy Dornauf each hit four. GEORGE TOWN won their third game in five weeks, beating Bridgenorth 10.8 (68) to 4.12 (36) to send their scoring men home happy. The Parrots led in the first two breaks but were held scoreless by the Saints in the second half as the home side scored five goals in the last term to secure the victory.

A precise eight-goal run sent ROCHERLEA to the final with a barrel of momentum, beating Scottsdale 14.11 (95) at 4.5 (29) to secure the double chance. Leading by just three in the quarter, the Tigers kicked off before Scottsdale caught up to them again, but the in-form team proved too important as Josh Holton scored four. Jordan Cousens and Dakota Bannister led the way at Rocherlea as Brad Tuffin and Bryton Mullins were the strongest in Scottsdale. Rocherlea will face Longford, another Tigers team, next week for the chance to face South Launceston for a place to the grand final.
