Game Review

The teams were well matched in a high-standard match and South prevailed due to the only lopsided period of the match, scoring 4 quick goals early in the second term.

South's Max Piggott, who only scored 21 career goals in 8 appearances had a day out, contributing 7 majors on this day after being summoned as a late replacement.
