Jonty Klemm continued his strong form by kicking four goals in the win, with Gus Downs (24 disposals and one goal) and Josh Goldie (22 disposals) prolific.

Accuracy was the name of the game at Norwood Oval as the Redlegs beat Glenelg by 20 points.

Norwood booted a precise 14.4 (88) but the Bays were made to rue inaccuracy despite having more scoring shots, finishing with 9.14 (68).

Redleg Toby Callow was one of the stars of the show, booting five-straight goals as Jeff Rozenbilds, Jim Kelly and Jack Hayter all collected more than 30 disposals.

Max Atkin and Ned McCarthy both booted three goals for Glenelg, as Timothy Alver gathered 31 disposals.

Woodville-West Torrens defeated North Adelaide by 20 points at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval in another match determined by goal kicking accuracy.

The Eagles kicked six goals without a blemish to half-time but the Roosters struggled in front of goal.

The contrasting accuracy continued for the remainder of the game, as the Eagles booted 11.3 (69) to North’s 6.13 (49).

Jevan Phillipou, the younger brother of St Kilda draftee and Eagles junior Mattaes, kicked three goals and Jack Cook gathered 30 disposals for the victors.

For the Roosters, usual suspects Sam Cumming (36 disposals and a goal) and Blake Oudshoorn-Bennier (33 touches and one goal) were strong in the middle.

Central District handed Sturt its first loss of the season by defeating the ladder-leaders by 42-points at X Convenience Oval.

Sturt kicked two goals in the first two minutes of the contest, but the Bulldogs hit back to lead at the first break, before putting the foot down in the second term.

The momentum continued in the second half as the Bulldogs kicked four goals in eight minutes after half-time, with star on-baller Dyson Sharp leading the home side to a comfortable win.

Sharp was typically prolific for Central, picking up 37 disposals, ten clearances and two goals, while forward Dougie Cochrane booted four goals from 27 touches.

Noah Roberts-Thomson was the Double Blues’ best player, gathering 24 disposals and two goals.
