Round 17 saw the Raiders take on old rivals, Tea Tree Gully, at home.
After a tight tussle during their first encounter in Round 8, the Reserves were determined to get a stronghold on the game early. That they did, and with Freddy Taylor on fire in the forward, the Reserves came out convincing winners.
Houghton Districts: 17.8 110
Tea Tree Gully: 5.1 31
Best Players: F. Taylor, J. Kuhar, J. Dwyer, D. Donovan, R. Glanville
The A Grade were keen to not let their season get the better of them. The A Grade held on for the first half, but a classy Tea Tree Gully outfit showed just why they were in finals contention, steaming away in the fourth quarter.

For our final minor round at home this weekend, we are recognizing our partnership with beyondblue.
beyondblue provides information and support to help everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live.
For us at HDFC, mental health is a topic close to our hearts. We firmly believe that the ideals of an amateur sporting club should be centered on providing a positive and inclusive social environment for people of all ages and backgrounds.
We will have donation tins at the bar and canteen. Please consider supporting HDFC and donate to this wonderful organisation.
The Raiders headed to Mawson Lakes for the return leg of the joint Club fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis.
