Battle for top spot
Battle for top spot

An eight-goal win to Boulder over Railways at the weekend has ensured a three-way tie at the top of the ladder in Under 16 Goldfields Football League junior competition.

Although the Tigers remain in third position, they moved level with Railways and top-of-the-table Mines Rovers on five wins apiece.

Holding a slight four-point advantage at half-time, the Tigers booted nine goals to two in the second half – running out 13.11 (89) to 6.5 (41) winners.

Trent Wojtowicz, Mitchell Bowden and Sebastian Wellstead were crucial up forward for Boulder – each kicking three goals.

Thomas Paahi, Wellstead and Mason Gould were standouts for the Tigers, while Zak Singh, Dylan Hinchliffe and Ryan Borchet tried hard for the Panthers.

Mines Rovers consolidated top spot on the ladder with a commanding 104-point win over bottom-placed Saints.
