The Sharks are looking the goods. But beware the Phantoms, Tigers and Sacred Heart lads. Glenunga are in a whole world of pain, while Salisbury North are also struggling big time.

Henley v Salisbury
Henley held strong at home in a nail-biting contest against a valiant Salisbury North outfit. Salisbury North came into the game without a win from three attempts but that certainly did not hold them back. Henley got out to a solid start with four straight goals in the opening term building a 10-point lead at the first break. Salisbury North showed more promise in the second term as they reeled the margin in to just two points at half-time. The second half saw both sides go back and forth before a final quarter effort from Salisbury North fell just short as Henley’s accurate kicking in front of goal proved to be the difference. Jake Cook and Jackson Smith both starred up forward for Henley with three goals apiece while Corey Gray’s performance earned him best-onground honors. Steven Wellington impressed with a three-goal haul for Salisbury North, but it was not enough to get his side across the line in what turned out to be the match of the round.
