As Redpa travelled to meet Forest Stanley, the visitors restricted their opponents to three majors and four behinds in the opening term while booting one goal and one point themselves.

However Redpa’s defence could not prevent the havoc Kade Bellinger would create, claiming six majors throughout the course of the day and allowing Forest Stanley to hold a 73 point margin at half time.

Redpa put two goals on the scoreboard in the third while Forest Stanley added three before the home side stormed home to win 20.13.133 to 3.3.21.

In Smithton, Irishtown posted five majors and two behinds in the opening stanza while Scotchtown responded with just one point.

The home side could not touch the scoreboard as the visiting Canaries booted away for a 71 point advantage at half time.

In the Reserves, Irishtown restricted Scotchtown to one major and three behinds while posting 7.8.50 and Forest Stanley dominated against Redpa winning an uncontested 12.15.102 victory.

In the Under 16 proceedings, Scotchtown were unable to impact the scoreboard in the first quarter as Irishtown gained a 24 point lead. The visitors stretched the margin further to win 3.1.19 to 11.10.76.

In the second game, Forest Stanley managed just one point and one behind against Redpa’s 19 goal haul. The final siren sounded to leave scores at 1.1.7 to 19.27.141.
