Roos Keep Looking Up

With eyes firmly fixed on the football, pictured here is in form Ruckman Luke Giles as Michael Pope (2) waits for the outcome.  For more Round 7 Seniors action and colts action between Mount Barker and Torrens Valley at ABLE Storage Oval, click on the Seniors and Juniors links above.

Wayward Roos make a Point

High flying Sam Pfeiffer takes a strong grab as the Roos ran out winners against the Torrens Valley Lions 9 goals 22 points (76) to the visitors 6 goals 14 points (50). The errant kicking Roos move to fourth on the HFL ladder.


The only way is up. Roos recruit, Sam Pfeiffer shows his Lions opponent which way the Roos are heading.

Please let the club know if you are a budding action sports photography like our Aussie, who would be willing to provide suitable action shots of the women’s football games.

Roos on the Rise

Simon Nunan prepares for an overhead mark as Echunga’s “Buddy” Liston attempts to spoil. Mount Barker ran out victors 11.10 (76) to Echunga 7.8 (50). As a result the Roos now find themselves 5th on the Premiership ladder. Best players from Saturday at Echunga Oval were Tom Hughes, Luke Giles, Sam Pfeiffer, Zane King and Jarred Chaplin. The Roos now have a bye and then the interleague commitment. Their next outing will be at ABLE Storage Oval on Saturday May 27. (V Torrens Valley)
