Chidlow rolls on

Chidlow rolls on

Star forward Adam McKinlay kicked nine goals to take his season tally to 160 as the dominant Cougars booked a spot in next Sunday’s grand final at Mundaring oval.

Best for Chidlow were Steven Schorer, Matthew Mallaby and Josh Tielen.

Chidlow’s scoring power proved far too great for Gidge as it cruised to a 54-point victory, 20.8 (128) to 11.8 (74).

McKinlay’s brother Brett has kicked 90 goals for the year and small forward Shane Fitzgerald 80.

In the first semi-final, Pickering Brook defeated Mundaring by 20 points, 13.11 (89) to Mundaring’s 9.15 (69).

The Hawks jumped out early against Mundaring, who suffered from terrible inaccuracy, posting 13 points straight before eventually finding the big opening in the third quarter.

From then on, the Roos pushed the Hawks right to the final siren and the result could easily have been different with some straight kicking.

The best Pickering players were Tim McQuoid , Rob Stanton and Luke Jones while for Mundaring, David Smith, Sean Lucassen and Thomas Cowton played well.

Gidgegannup will now take on Pickering Brook in tomorrow’s preliminary final at 2pm at Chidlow Oval in what shapes as a highly interesting contest.

Gidge thrashed the Hawks by more than seven goals in their first clash of the season in the opening round then the Hawks returned the favour, downing Gidge by 11 goals at their only other clash in 2013 on August 4.

Both will be eager for another crack at the all-conquering Cougars.
