Railways have advanced to the grand final in the Great Southern Football League reserves competition after a convincing 34-point preliminary final win over North Albany at Sounness Park on Sunday. Royals also had success on preliminary final day as they won both the 16s and colts matches to reach their respective grand finals. The Tigers rebounded from their qualifying final loss with a big first half, piling on eight goals and holding the Kangas to just one major. The Tigers were 42 points ahead at half-time but a two-goal third term from the Kangas cut the margin back to 35 points at the last change. Despite the Kangas finishing well and adding three goals in the final term, the Tigers rallied to add three majors of their own, finishing 12.6 (78) to 6.8 (44) victors. Tigers’ Charlie Punch medallist Anthony Coyne was prolific in the win and was well supported by Shaun Hodgson, Taj Stubber and Declan Willey. Hodgson was the main avenue to goal with four while Willey also added three majors. The win sets up a eagerly anticipated fixture with Royals in the decider. Ben Dickinson kicked two majors for the Kangas while Jackson Cosh, Blair Walkington, Nathan Komene and Rhett Hassell all played well. In the colts preliminary final, the Lions were dominant 65-point winners against the Tigers. Ryan Lazar, Jordan Hulm, Kaizen Beck and William Cousins provided most of the drive for the Lions as they led at every change to eliminate the Tigers. Lazar and Rory Luscombe were the major goal kickers, each finishing with three goals in the one-sided affair. The Tigers were best served by Stephen Coyne, Jaydan Kowalski, Tyler Maher and Lachlan Cale. The Lions progress to face top seed Denmark-Walpole in the grand final. In the 16s preliminary final the Lions finished comfortable 50-point winners over the Tigers. The Tigers were held scoreless for the entire first half while the Lions fired home six goals to lead by 39 points at half-time. The Lions were outscored three goals to one in the third term, but the Tigers were left to rue a poor first half as they bowed out of the finals campaign with a 11.9 (75) to 3.7 (25) loss. Lions young guns Billy McRae, Maxwell Swarbick, Brock Zambonetti and Mitchell Paine all played key parts in the win. Hunter Porteous, Mitchell Geddes, Ben Michael and Austin Brown were the Tigers’ best players. The Lions now face Albany to decide the 16s premiership.
