It was Super Saturday up at Houghton Memorial Oval.
Two milestones, a junior exhibition game and Quiz Night! And to top it off, two wins!
The Reserves were greeted by a determined Mitchell Park. But they quickly turned up the dial for Dave Keetch's 250th and Andrew Roger's 100th game. With eleven goal scorers to share the goods, the Reserves were relentless, posting their thirteenth consecutive win.
Houghton Districts: 19.19 133
Mitchell Park: 3.2 20
Best Players: A. Rogers, D. Keetch, T. Ferris, J. Kuhar, B. Kroepsch
The Lil Raiders and Lil Hawkers took to the ground for the second junior exhibition game of the season. HDFC is very proud of the Lil Raiders and how far they've come in their first season together. With only a few games left, we look forward to planning for Junior Raiders in 2019 and beyond. A big thanks to the Lil Hawkers and their families for coming along to support our exhibition games this season. We hope to continue the newly founded tradition next year.
The A Grade were determined to notch up their fifth win of the season. Mitchell Park proved to be a worthy competitor and yet again, the game came down to the wire. The Raiders managed to hold on in the final minutes of the game to celebrate an overdue win.
Houghton Districts: 9.16 70
Mitchell Park: 9.13 67
Best Players: M. Sharpe, B. Johnson, S. Prochazka, B. Clark, N. Hall
