Old Scholars Football Association

It was an old-fashioned shootout early between St Virgils and DOSA, with a flurry of goals keeping it close before the Saints kicked away late for a 51-point win. The two sides booted 13 first-quarter goals between them, and while DOSA slowed down from there St Virgils kept their foot on the gas and finished with 22 goals as some wayward kicking kept them from an even larger total. Long-time state league superstar Jaye Bowden led the way for the Saints with five majors, while Michael Fisher kicked six in a losing side.

There was an even bigger score kicked in the reserves competition, as OHA piled on 56 goals to claim a big win over Richmond. Most notable was OHA forward Paul Hudson, who lived up to his famous name with a rare 20 goal haul for the victors.

NAB League Boys

A stunning first half set up the Tasmania Devils boys for their first win of the season, as they ran out 27-point winners over the Eastern Ranges at the Twin Ovals. An even bigger margin of victory looked to be on the cards as the Devils shocked the visitors early, kicking eight goals to one in the first half and taking a 46-point lead into the main break. The Ranges came racing back in the second half but left themselves with far too much work to do, and the Devils did enough to keep the margin comfortable. Sam Banks and Oliver Sanders were busy throughout and led the game with 29 disposals apiece, while four Devils kicked multiple goals in a balanced display.

Southern Football League

Already traditional rivals, there was plenty of pride on the line as Huonville and Cygnet faced off in a rematch of last season’s SFL grand final. While the Lions took home the trophy in 2020, a blistering start helped Cygnet to turn the tables and claim a 24-point win on enemy turf. They kept the home side goalless in the first quarter and skipped away to a 30-point lead at half time before holding their nerve late when the Lions made their push. Joseph Direen kicked five goals for the Storm, while James Zeitzen was named best on ground and continued his strong start to the season.

North West Football League

A late comeback saw reigning NWFL premiers Burnie claim a heart-stopping two-point win over Wynyard, with a goal to Oakely Smith in the final minute and some scrambling late defence stealing the result. The Dockers trailed at every break and fell behind by 14 midway through the final quarter, but they kicked the last three goals of the game to grab a lead that they wouldn’t relinquish. The win was made even sweeter as it came in Burnie veterans Nick Walters and Tyrone Morrison’s 250th game, with both named in their side’s best players.
