INSPIRED by star
performances from Lenny
Campbell and captain Kenny
won the Independent A grade
football premiership for the first
time since 1994 against BSR at
Brown's Well on Saturday.
The Warriors appeared to have
the majority of supporters in their
corner on the day, which spurred
them on to victory.
In the first year without a
colts competition, the pre-match
atmosphere was a bit lacklustre
for a grand final, but after Advance
Australia Fair it was clear to all that
the two teams were itching to get
started and the excitement built.
The last game of the season
started with both teams failing to
kick an early goal until experienced
full forward Anthony Pierri kicked
truly to put the Warriors in front.
An injury to versatile player Matt
Mattner added to the Redbacks' early
worries. It took a risky kick-in by the
Warriors to give Alex Birch and BSR
their first goal.
The Warriors led by seven points
at quarter time, but the second
quarter saw BSR fight back like
impressive sides do.
It was the battle of the defences
towards the end of the quarter and
it seemed BSR won the fight, taking
a five-point lead into half-time.
At the start of the premiership
quarter, the Warriors took back the
lead early with a goal to Ben Will.
Overall throughout the third
quarter Moorook-Kingston was far
superior, showing more efficient ball
use under pressure than BSR.
Heading into the final quarter of
the season, Moorook-Kingston had a
handy 30-point lead.
It looked like the Warriors
were getting set for a premiership,
constantly feeding the ball forward
and capitalising on multiple
opportunities inside fifty.
BSR got some late goals to reduce
the sting of the grand final loss.
Most valuable player for BSR went
to Samson Marks, while the winning
team's MVP was captain Wright.
Best on ground was awarded to

INDEPENDENT GRAND FINAL
Warriors' 20-year wait now over
first flag in 20
by 26 points
Men make their way into grand ﬁnal
A WEEK off should
make little difference to
performance for the Waikerie
A grade men's hockey team
in this week's Riverland
grand final, according to
coach Ryan Edwards.
The side defeated Loxton
3-1 in the second semi-final last
month, before the latter had a
win over 2-1 win over Renmark
Loxton will now play
Waikerie again in the fourth
consecutive grand final between
the two teams.
Edwards, who will also play
in this Friday's match, said finals
preparation was a season-long
"There's not much you can do
in a week," he said.
"You just need to work
through the year and stick to the
things you've been working on."
Edwards said he was
confident that Waikerie
could win this week's final,
particularly because the side
won last time despite having
"room for improvement".
"We're also pretty lucky that
we should be at full strength,"
he said. "We've had a few little
injuries during the year, but
everything's all right now."
Waikerie's A grade men's
hockey team will be joined in
the grand finals matches by the
B grade and under 18 men and
women, along with the under 15
men and under 12 mixed team.
"On behalf of the hockey
club, I'd like to wish good
luck everyone who's playing,"
