Picola managed a premiership double after defeating Strathmerton in the Picola District Football League north-west reserves grand final.

United was brilliant from the outset, kicking three goals in the opening term to eventually win 13.8 (86) to 5.9 (39).

The 47-point victory meant United, who competed in three of the four grades, secured victory in the two open age divisions.

Matt Atkinson starred in the reserves, kicking three goals from midfield.

Travis Gilby, Noah Glanville, best-on-ground Ben Reid and Darcy O’Neill all finished with two majors as United kept the Bulldogs goalless in the third term.

Daniel Allen was lively up forward for the eBulldogs, kicking two of his side’s five goals, while Lance Crowe worked tirelessly.

In a battle between first and second, it was the ladder leaders who proved the grandest of sides on the biggest of stages.

●In the under-17 decider, Picola felt the full force of Jerilderie with the Demons sweeping to a 90-point victory.

The Demons jumped out of the blocks kicking four unanswered goals in the first term before Kyal Atkinson kicked United’s first and only goal for the morning.

On the other hand, the Demons had seven individual goalkickers with Andrew Neessen stealing the show with six.

Nash Fitzgerald and Tyson Conn claimed four each, while Jordan Anthony and Ben Neessen finished with three and two, respectively.

Mitch A’Vard was prominent all morning, while for United Jarrod and Jayson Byrne, Atkinson and Kyle Saunders led from the front, but the Demons cruised 15.13 (103) to 1.7 (13).

●Baylee Morton had a morning to remember kicking seven goals in Tocumwal’s 62-point win against Deniliquin in the under-14 grand final.

The Bloods pounced on the Rovers, amassing 38 unanswered points in the opening term, before eventually claiming the spoils 14.5 (89) to 4.3 (27).

Zander Griffin, Harvey White, and Tom Barker were the Bloods’ better players, while Kaiden Joss kicked two of the Rovers’ four majors.
