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.
