KANIVA/Leeor United continued its landmark KNTFL season with a one-two result in the Mail/Virgo Medal count on Wednesday night.
The Cougars have lost only one game this season, and it was the dynamic duo of rover Jared Greenbank and ruckman Sebastian Guilhaus - both first-year players who travel each week from Adelaide - who combined to take out the quinella.
Greenbank started the count slowly but hit stride mid-season with a string of best on ground performances to pull away from the field. He finished with seven three-vote games, including the last minor round to cap off his excellent year.
Guilhaus started the count well and was always prominent on his way to 22 votes and runner-up.
Ruckmen featured prominently, with Lucindale's Tim Walsh and Padthaway's Peter Featherstone both polling 19 votes to finish equal third.
Lucindale on-baller Ryan McInerney polled 18 votes and Mundulla on-baller Jake McGrice polled 17.
Interestingly, the first five players in the medal, as well as the leading goalkicker, have all come from outside the league.
Lucindale ruckman Walsh won the footballer of the year award, Padthaway's Ben Gunning won the A grade goalkicking with 66 goals and Naracoorte's Matt Willson won the rising star award.
The Johnson Medal for reserves best and fairest was a tie between Kybybolite's Brad Redding and Kingston's Craig Watson with 21 votes.
