Imperials moved into the SFNL four by leading all day and beating reigning premiers Ouyen United on Saturday.

But the Kangas did fight back with a five goal burst in the final quarter. Their day began badly when Mitchell Taylor was delayed and did not arrive by plane in Mildura until 1.25pm and then had to be driven to Blackburn Park.

South’s Brodie Hodson missed the delayed plane leaving South Mildura a little undermanned against the Tigers, who had former Essendon player Alwyn Davey, Aaron Motlop and Shannon Motlop in the side.

 

Mildura steam rolled Irymple to cement top place on the ladder while ex-AFL player Ben McGlynn booted six goals in a Wentworth win over Merbein at the George Gordon oval.
