Round 2 Seniors action

Congrats to Malachi Lines on his senior debut for the Roos on Saturday at Able Storage Oval. Interestingly Pistols and Goldie 88.9 FM “Call of the Wild” from the scoreboard box affectionately referred to Malachi as “Malarky” Lines; that nick-name might just stick.

Final score Mount Barker 7.6 (48) to Uraidla 8.15 (63).   The Roos next face old foe Hahndorf on Anzac Day at Hahndorf Oval.  More senior action and junior pics to follow.
