Crystal Brook stormed home to secure a place in the 2018 Northern Areas Football Association A-grade grand final after a 59-point victory over Orroroo.

The Roosters got off to a slow start in the first quarter of the preliminary final as the Roos managed to set a nine-point margin.

It was in the second quarter that the Roosters’ brilliance was on display and the red-and-whites started to add to scoreboard, limiting the Roos’ scoring opportunities.

Onto a winner: James Wardle Memorial Trophy winner Mitch Abell with senior colts coach Paul Fogarty.

Heading into the third quarter with an 18-point lead, Crystal Brook continued to pile the pressure on Orroroo as well as adding considerably to the goal tally.

The Roosters were in fine form in front of goals and booted seven in the third term, with the Roos scoring just a single point.
