KEITH won the toss on a gloomy winter’s day and kicked to the north end of their home oval going with the breeze.
Keith defeated Border Districts on June 14.
The first score went to Borders with a behind. The Crows answered with a good passage of play moving the ball from the kick in ending with Simounds for Keith’s first goal for the game. Borders moved the ball forward where C. Barras snuck out the back for an easy reply.
Keith was having all the play in their forward lines but only behinds were scored. Borders couldn’t get the ball past half forward as Gill repelled everything.
Goals to Wilhelm, King and Redden saw the Crows creep away on the scoreboard. A. Wilson and H. McMurray on his wing were finding plenty of space driving the ball into the Crows’ forward line on many occasions.
Keith’s use of the ball improved as the quarter went on, and big Hugo Drogemuller ended the quarter with a goal to give Keith eight for the term.
Keith were straight into attack to start the second quarter where Snajdar marked and goaled. Good pressure and tackle by Miller put Borders into attack only to be rebounded by S. McMurray who with Gill worked the ball forward for Redden to finish off.
More goals to Simounds, King and Mitchell quickly blew the margin out. The Crows back line were well on top not letting anything through, their skills and run were resulting in the forwards kicking goals with every inside 50 frustrating the Borders defence.
Snajdar kicked his fourth for the quarter. Borders defender Jay Zeuner saw red and he was red carded which resulted in a goal to Redden.
Ferenci and Burr were trying hard for Borders without much help. Snajdar then goaled on the siren to put the Crows well in control at half time.
After only 39 seconds in the third quarter, Makin slotted another major for the Crows.
Goals were free flowing for the Crows. Sharing it around, A. Wilson, Mitchell, Simounds and Gill all kicked truly.
Borders eventually found their way into their forward line where C. Barras marked in the pocket and played on, kicking his and Borders’ second.
A quick reply from Simounds for Keith got the momentum going back in the Crows’ favour.
S. McMurray combined well with C. McMurray in defence who then found H. McMurray who found Simounds for a goal.
Keith dominated play to go into the final break well in control.
Borders started the last quarter well kicking the first goal through Miller.
Players starting to tire as the lights helped players see as the conditions darkened.
Snajdar and Wilhelm added a goal each to get the Crows to 30 goals for the match.
Burr, Barras and Ferenci battled hard all day for Borders while Snajdar bagged seven and Simounds with five gave the Crows targets all day.
