LIONS TRIUMPH TO WIN FLAG
by Ryan McArdle - September 12, 2017
Congratulations to Peake and District Football Club for winning the Mallee Football League
A grade Premiership, Been a long time but they got the job done on Saturday in a hard fought win.
A healthy crowd flocked to Murrayville oval to see Peake take on Pinnaroo in the A gradeMallee football league Grand Final. It was tight first up with both teams getting plenty of the ball. The Pressure was huge in every quarter, with Pinnaroo getting lots of drive through, Alex Keough, Tyson and Shannon Jenner. Jarrod Kerber was great and Shilo Dabinett showed us what type of player he has turned into, as did Rory O’Driscoll who is a good size footballer. Ryan Nickolls was a big physical target up forward and at some stages required the attention of two of Peake's backman. He bagged four for the day. Clint Muster also had two goals
to his name. Chad Nickolls was good and also Callum Tonkin got his hands to the footy quite a lot, which was exciting for the Roos.
Peake were inspirational all day with great performances from many players. Jamie Conlon was BOG, he has the agility and versatility of a small midfielder but the ability to play tall as well which makes his dangerous. Jake Niven was huge all day and he got himself the best team man award. I thought the combination of Lachy Wilson and the superstar young gun
Nick Gregurke was telling over the four quarters, in big moments they stood up and took the game on. Luke Genikas showed us what he can do busting packs and delivering for his team, I thought some of his efforts were real team lifters. In a low scoring match Sam Braidwood was hard to stop as he imposed himself in marking contests even. Saunders was great as usual.
Peake got up by 5 points in the end and huge congratulations to the Peake A grade for a well-deserved premiership win, under the super coach Matt Whitford.
