Carnamah Perenjori have their revenge and are off to the grand final after taking down Coorow Latham 12.10 (82) to 8.16 (64) in the North Midlands Football League preliminary final. The Roos claimed redemption in the rematch of the 2022 NMFL grand final, which saw the Magpies take the flag after defeating Carnamah 16.10 (106) to 8.12 (60). The preliminary final began with Carnamah coming out red hot, posting a quick five goals to Coorow’s one. The Magpies were shooting themselves in the foot in the second term with their goal kicking, as they kicked 2.7 in the quarter. Coorow’s inaccuracy stood out, as Carnamah went into the half up 24 points, but Coorow had more opportunities to score in the game but failed to capitalise, with the scores sitting at 8.5 (53) to 3.11 (29). The weather turned sour and rain picked up at the ground which did not help the trailing Magpies scoring struggles. Although the team managed to pick up some scores late in the game, it was constantly being matched by the Kangaroos who went on to win the game and end Coorow’s season. Now Carnamah have the last laugh, with the win sending them to the grand final, where they will face Three Springs. The Magpies experienced highs and lows all season, as after starting 9-0, the team lost four out of the past six home-and-away games. Coorow still finished second on the ladder, but fell short in the qualifying final to Three Springs and now the reigning premiers’ season ends with their loss on the weekend. The Kangaroos finished with a 9-6 record, winning their past five games straight to send them to the big dance. Carnamah will now take on the top side Three Springs in the NMFL grand final on Saturday, September 9, at Morawa Oval with bouncedown at 2.30pm.
