CHFA. Circular Head Football Association concluded its home and away season with a one point thriller and a more than 100 point thrasher on Saturday.
Ladder leader Irishtown took on bottom of the ladder Redpa on home ground, dominating in attack.
Redpa was forced to play a defensive game but were strict in applying pressure onto their opponents, causing Irishtown to kick inaccurately on many occasions.
Despite this defence, Canary Kurt Everett claimed nine majors throughout the contest alongside three from Gary Randall.
Following three quarters with one behind on the board, Anthony Thompson booted the Redpa goal in the final term as the side conceded defeat, 16.15.111 to 1.1.7.
In Smithton, Scotchtown and Forest Stanley locked into a fierce and fiery battle.
The Demons took the lead in the first term before the Tigers fought back for a two point lead at the final change.
Daniel Littlejohn and Judd Stewart kicked strongly for the home side while Lincoln Jackson and James Jackson represented the visitors.
A fierce final term thrilled spectators as the lead changed hands several times. An error by the Forest Stanley defence in the dying seconds of the match turned a five point lead into a one point loss as Scotchtown booted a goal after the siren, 8.14.62 to 9.7.61.
In the Reserves, Forest Stanley and Irishtown dominated against their respective opponents.
The Canaries claimed a 160 point victory over the Redlegs, 25.13.163 to 0.3.3, as Sean Ryan stormed the ground with seven majors.
The Demons and Tigers played a tighter match throughout three quarters before Forest Stanley prevented the home side from any final term impact to take the win, 5.8.38 to 11.5.71.
In the Under 17 matches, Redpa defeated Irishtown with 3.9.27 to 6.4.40 while Scotchtown earned the win ahead of Forest Stanley, 9.10.64 to 2.3.15.
The Under 14 results were similar as the young Redlegs booted 7.3.45 to the Canaries’ 2.3.15 and the Tigers claimed a slim win with 3.11.29 to the Demons’ 3.2.20.
