A youthful Katanning Wanderers fell to their third straight defeat of the 2020 Upper Great Southern Football League season at the hands of an experienced Brookton-Pingelly outfit by 122 points at Quartermaine Oval last Sunday. The Panthers, led by a dominant ruck and key forwards, defeated the Wanderers, 23.10 (148) to 3.8 (26). The Panthers’ big win moved them into third spot on the UGSFL premiership ladder. Former Brisbane Lions player Matthew Moody and Lloyd Padwick kicked eight and six goals respectively after finishing off the work set up by midfielders Dylan Kirk, Kaine Ah-Chee and James Spark. Both Moody and Padwick led and marked well and kicked long goals. The Panthers started and finished strongly with eight goals in the first quarter and six goals in the last and were full of running all day. An inexperienced Wanderers side, to their credit, never gave up. With an average age of 21 and with a number of senior players out injured, they still won a lot of the ball. Jacob Rosario was strong in defence for the visitors as they held the Wanderers to only one goal up to three-quarter-time. The home side moved youngster Deklan Georgy on to Padwick and kept him to two goals after half-time, courtesy of strong marking and tackling. His pinpoint-accurate left-foot kicking was a feature of his four-quarter effort. Ruckman Mitchell Banks and rover Reece Nicholson were also hard workers for Wanderers, with Banks rucking tirelessly and Nicholson always being at the bottom of the packs fighting for the ball. The Panthers were best served by Moody, Tyson Kirk, Ah-Chee, Padwick and Luke Kirk. Callum Collard was the only multiple goal kicker for the home side while Georgy, Nicholson, Banks, Ryan Pontillo and Emmerson Smith were named among their better players.
