All rounds lead to Kingston this week as both Kingston and Keith navigated their way through round five games to remain undefeated and the two teams now meet in a massive blockbuster on Saturday at Kingston.

Kingston took care of Penola on the weekend in a hard fought 33-point win to stay undefeated at the top of the ladder and set up a clash against Keith who also recorded a 39-point win against Padthaway.

Ben Warner was great in the Saints win with five goals and Jacob Fisher helped out with two goals of his own. Ben Warner, Tyler Baker and Hagan Wright were outstanding for The Saints.

Penola had single goal kickers and really couldn't find an outstanding offensive force all game long. Brock Egan, Scott Merrett and Bradley Bryant tried hard all game for The Eagles.

Keith broke away from Padthaway in the second half of the game last Saturday to remain undefeated and continue on their way.

Ben Simounds kicked four goals, while he was helped out by Albert Dunstan who kicked three goals of his own. Luke Harder kicked five goals for Padthaway in a great fighting effort.

Patrick Curpurso, Lachlan Johnson and Will Schreiber were awesome in the Keith victory. Jason McCarthy, Luke Harder and Tom Moyle-Read were the better players for Padthaway.

Bordertown were in total control of their game against Naracoorte. The Roosters jumped out to a nine-goal lead by half time and never looked back.

Curtis McCarthy kicked four goals in the victory and had Joshua Searle and Thomas Whittlesea helped out with three goals each in the win. Joshua Searle, Thomas Gough and Tom Whittlesea led the way for the Roosters in the victory.

Naracoorte had just three players who kicked goals up forward and that was Rory Taggert who kicked six goals, Aaron Slorach with three goals and Sam Willson who put through two goals of his own.

William Limbert, Sam Bates and Bartley Nolan were the better players for Naracoorte.

Border Districts won their second game for the season after a close win against Kybybolite on Saturday. The Eagles held Kybybolite without a goal in the first half and held on in the last quarter as The Tigers tried to fight back.

Borders were led well by Shawn Mansell who kicked five goals and Graham Hampton kicked two goals to help out. Daniel Skinner, Mark Quinn and Rodney Oliver were great for the winning Eagles.

Tyler Harris kicked two goals for Kybybolite in a fighting effort. Dylan Brodie, Bill Munn and Luke Cooper tried their best for Kybybolite.

Mundulla put in a workman-like performance to overcome Lucindale who couldn't kick straight in the second half as they attempted to comeback from a 42-point deficit at half time.

The Roos kicked 5-9 to 6-2 in the second half but just couldn't find the middle sticks more often as they went down by 41-points in the end. Harry Dowling kicked five goals for Mundulla in the victory.

Sam Luckett, Brayden Redden and Harry Dowling were instrumental in the victory for Mundulla. Lucindale found it hard to find a forward who could get on top of his man as they had all single goal kickers. Riley Milne, Tom Logan and Henry Tregoweth battled hard for Lucindale.

Round 6 this week has many great match ups and none better than the clash for top spot between Kingston and Keith at Kingston this week.

Both teams will be pumped and ready to test each other out in front of a huge crowd. The battle of the Eagles takes place at Francis in another game as Border Districts hosts Penola.

This is a game that could go either way. Lucindale host Kybybolite and The Roos would be warm favourites at home to get the win.

The big rivals Mundulla and Bordertown play each other at Mundulla in a clash that will test to see where the Roosters are at. Mundulla are starting to get their full team back and are looking good.

Padthaway and Naracoorte battle in the last game and both sides are in the mix but need to put some consistent wins together to break away from the chasing pack. This should be a great game as well.
