Raggies started extremely well in very hot conditions (35 degrees). Pooraka fought back but never looked like winning. A great first up performance by the boys.

Very hot conditions again (35 degrees) with a strong northerly wind. Led for most of the day before losing it in the last quarter. Looking forward to playing them at home.

Goals - A.Kite 4, K.Hopper 2, M.Constable, M.Grossmann, A.Norsworthy, S.Oatway

After a promising start, we were unable to win the ball around the stoppages and Walkerville controlled the game after quarter time.

Goals - C.Whenan 4, K.Hopper 3, M.Grossmann, M.Fenton, S.Sullivan 2, S.Oatway, M.Stagg

An ordinary first half despite starting better. Portland looked to have the game in their control at half time. The Raggies came out to play in the second half with the backline particularly mean conceding only 1 goal until the last 2 minutes.

A great start but couldn't sustain it resulting in a very disappointing loss. The Raggies have shown they can play as well as any other side but need to do it for 4 quarters.

A solid 4 quarter performance against an undermanned opposition. The second quarter was particularly good.

This was the one that got way. Up by 3 goals with 5 minutes remaining. Disappointing.

Finished this one off well. We kept Modbury in the game with some inaccuracy in front of goal. Modbury hit the front just after 3/4 time but the Raggies weren't going to let another one slip.

The win the Raggies needed to have. The first win against this team since we resumed playing them in 2003. Great win with a barnstorming finish.

A solid win after letting them back in during the latters stages of the second quarter. The second half belonged to the Raggies. Thanks to Eastern Park loss to Modbury, Raggies are now in fifth position.

It was not the best display of footy for the year but it was one of the most important wins. The Raggies participation in finals is assured.

Poor kicking for goal in the first half, after a good opening against the breeze in the first quarter, really hurt in the end. A few injuries meant the side had to be reshuffled after half time, but Modbury were too good from there.

A disappointing finish in muddy conditions. Whilst we didn't play well, the goal post didn't help (twice) in the 3rd quarter when we were getting back into the game. Improvement was made this season but a very hollow feeling after exiting at this stage of the finals.
