Trinity Aquinas and Scarborough face off this weekend in the 2016 A Grade Grand Final rematch. 

North Beach and Fremantle CBC made it two wins in a row after both losing in the first-round while University made it three wins from three starts. 

 

B Grade

Mt Lawley find themselves in top position on the ladder with two wins from three starts and a handy percentage. They managed to hold on to beat Maddington in round three by thirteen points. Last year’s B Grade leading goal kicker Adam Mckinlay slotted four goals for the winning side while his brother David is leading the goal kicking award already this season with fifteen goals to his name. 

So far it remains a close competition with positions 1- 6 all sitting on two wins. Kelmscott are the only side not to have won a match this season and were beaten comfortably again in round three with a 62-point loss to Wanneroo. 

Stirling, Collegians and Maddington are all sitting on one win. 

C1 Grade

Ballajura held off Willetton to claim a six-point win and remain undefeated for the season. They now sit on top of the ladder by one game. They face an experienced C1 side this weekend in Carlisle at Kingfisher Oval.

Noranda also managed a six-point victory over Carlisle who are now sitting on the bottom of the ladder.

Quinn’s Districts recorded their first win of the season with a 49-point victory over Bullcreek Leeming. Quinn’s Districts were relegated at the end of 2016 and had lost to Ballajura and Melville before their round three win. 

C2 Grade

In the 2016 C3 Grand Final rematch Nollamara recorded their first win for the season beating Swan Valley by ten points. It was just one point more than their Grand Final winning margin in September last year. It has been a tough elevation into C2 grade for Nollamara who were beaten comfortably by Bassendean and Lynwood Ferndale in the first two rounds. They face Warnbro Swans this weekend who are sitting in second spot with three straight wins. 

After making the preliminary final last season Gosnells have kicked off 2017 with three wins and the highest percentage to sit on top of the ladder. Round three saw them defeat Ocean Ridge by 39 points.
