Tyrendarra triumph in qualifying final
TYRENDARRA is one step closer to the big dance in the South West District Football League competition after defeating Heathmere in Saturday’s qualifying final, 12.7 (79) to 6.11 (47).
It was a hard hitting clash throughout the four quarters with the Darras charging home in the second half to cement their spot in next week’s second semi-final against top side Westerns.
Tyrendarra developed a lead early in the match with their options up forward providing plenty of opportunity to score to lead 26-14 in the first quarter.
Despite missing the services of playing coach Leon Davis due to injury Heathmere hit back hard in the second quarter with Josh Andrews and Will Pickett finding plenty of the ball in the contest.
The game remained open at half time with Heathmere trailing by just eight points, 6.6 (42) to 5.4 (34).
