The Raiders trekked to the southern suburbs of Adelaide to take on O'Sullivan Beach / Lonsdale.
After a goalless first quarter for the Reserves, the tide quickly turned with a five to one goal second quarter. Freddy Taylor and Todd Birch each snagged three goals a piece to steer the Reserves to a comfortable win.
Final Score: Houghton Districts 10.8 68 / OSB Lonsdale 6.8 44
Best Players: J. Coff, T. Ferris, T. Birch, F. Taylor, D. Keetch.
The A Grade After a cracking first half, the A Grade couldn't match the persistence of OSB Lonsdale, going down by four goals.

It was a chilly day up the hill - we're not sure if the gauge reached double figures!
Nonetheless, the President's Beer & BBQ Lunch, sponsored by Vale Ale Brewing, saw a cosy crowd gather by the fire pits (thanks Brooksy and Barry!) to enjoy a few beers and a Mumma Crago lunch special. Thank you to everyone who attended.
The Reserves got off to a slow start against St. Paul's Old Scholars, but they kicked into gear in the second quarter and maintained a stronghold on the game til the final siren. It was the tenth win for Reserves, who are having a remarkable year. Final Score: 17.17 119 to 2.1 13. Best Players included J. Kuhar, M. Johnson, D. Keetch, S. Grimley, B. Johnson.
The A Grade mirrored the Reserves slow start to their game and were unfortunately unable to claw back the gap in the muddy, wet conditions. Houghton weren't able to capitalise on their at-goal attempts, with the low scoring affair going in favour of St. Paul's. Final Score: 5.8 38 to 7.4 46. Best Players included J. Davis, N. Hall, C. Schutz, M. Sharpe, L. Rayson.

And it continues! The Reserves Juggernaut put on a show for the crowd of onlookers that gathered for the Annual HDFC Past Players and Sponsor's Day at Houghton Memorial Oval. The Final Score: 18.15 123 to 6.3 39. Best players included T. Oswald, D. Keetch, B. Johnson, S. Grimley, B. Kroepsch.
The A Grade weren't able to match the excitement from the Reserves game, and were handed their biggest loss of the season thus far, going down to a talented Marion outfit by almost 60 points. Final Score: 9.5 59 to 17.14 116. Best players included B. Korner, M. Sharpe, J. Davis, J. Currie, N. Hall.
A huge thanks to the great Don Korner for organising the day's event and an even bigger thanks to the crowd of past players and sponsors that came along for the day. We love having you all there!
Round 8 saw Houghton take on Tea Tree Gully - a clash that was over a decade in the making.
The Reserves had a tight tussle, and in the first challenge of the season, it came down to the wire. A free kick in the Raiders forward late in the final quarter saw the visitors push ahead. Much to Hendo's delight, the Reserves were able to hold onto their lead until the final siren. Final score: 7.5 47 to 7.12 54. Best players included M. Cooper, J. Coff, D. Keetch, R. Purdon, A. Molloy.
The A Grade came with the will to get another win on the board, but weren't able to shake the persistent opposition. Despite a cracking start to the game, missed opportunities saw the Raiders A Grade go down by 16 points. Final score: 14.7 91 to 11.9 75. Best players included N. Hall, B. Turner, J. Davis, M. Sharpe, R. Glanville.
