WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 15 2021 WEATHER 55 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Josiah Farrer powers Katherine Souths into Big Rivers grand final. Picture: Glenn Campbell It was also a big week for the Camels with key midfielder Daniel Vercoe winning the prestigious Doug Kelly Medal earlier in the week. Vercoe finished top of the best and fairest count with 20 votes to his name, two votes clear of Garraks Gabriel Henry. After playing nine matches throughout the BRFL Vercoe has already earmarked himself as one to watch in the grand final and will give Souths plenty to fight against. Arnhem Crows Freda Wosomo and Tindal Magpies captain Vicki Farrelly both topped the womens count with a tied 12 votes each. the Camels have had a rest, so everything is set for a big one. In Tennant Creeks Barkly Football League, the Eagles played their way into Saturdays grand final against Spitfires. The Eagles gutsy 16.12 (108) to 15.10 (100) preliminary final win over Barkly Work Camp brings together a Spitfires side gunning for a seventh flag in eight seasons and an Eagles team trying to repeat their 2018 triumph. Dion Burton and five-goal forward Mitchell Hayes led the way for the Eagles, while Dallas Scobie and four-goal forward Jarrod Lane stood out for BWC. shake off the Bulldogs, who had Nicko Farrell in sparkling form at full forward with his seven-goal return. But Souths Farrer was the matchwinner, along with Hayden Edwards through the middle, Dean Robertson in the ruck, Alwyn Davey and Kiefen Mardi. For Souths coach Mal Fox the win gives his side another shot at the Camels as the grand final beckons. It promises to be a great grand final, the Camels are a very good side and were no slouches either, Fox said. Well be fielding our best side, with Will Farrer a likely inclusion, for the big one and KATHERINE Souths spearhead Josiah Farrer powered his side into Saturdays Big Rivers Football League grand final with an 11-goal haul in the preliminary final. Farrer, deputising for his injured brother Will in the key forward post and still nursing a plate in a broken hand, was unstoppable against the Ngukurr Bulldogs. He sealed the second Souths-Camels BRFL Grand Final in as many years as the Crocodiles beat opponents Ngukurr by 48 points.
