Port Lincoln football preview

LAST round before finals and the positions look unlikely to change but a close battle is shaping up at Mallee Park.

The second placed Peckers go up against Wayback, who have won their last four games and could be dark horses going into finals.

The Peckers are favoured to win this one but the Demons will make it a competitive contest and are capable of pulling off an upset.

As Centenary is getting a rest before finals Lincoln South will play its last home game of the season against Marble Range at Ravendale.

The Rangers are coming off a dominant 93-point win against Boston and look to have another big win this weekend, but Souths should never be underestimated and will make them earn those possessions.

Marble Range should get the win here as they prepare for the elimination final.

Finally Boston will close out 2019 at home, but have a tough task in the form of minor premiers Tasman.

The Roosters should close out the minor rounds with a dominant win but the Tigers should give it all they have.

Before the A grade people should also attend the reserves match which will see Boston veteran Adrian 'Adie' Searle play his 250th game.

Shanno's Pizza Award

Tasman under 17 midfielder Cooper Perham and Lincoln South under 13 centre half back Jayden Evans are the latest winners of the Shanno's Pizza Award.

Cooper inspired his team to their round 13 win against Lincoln South in difficult conditions, setting the tone early with some bone crunching tackles and elite clearance work.

Racking up a high possession count and bringing teammates into the game he finished his good work with three goals in an ultimate four quarter performance.

Evans put on a dominant display in his side's round 14 win against Wayback as he cut off many Demon attacking plays with ability to read the ball and set up his teammates with precise kicking and creative handballing.
