MID SOUTH EAST FOOTBALL 31 Demons fighting to regain top four spot From back page MAJOR MILESTONE: Goal umpire, David Gilbert will wave the flags for the 500th time in a senior Kongorong game this weekend. But 500 games is less than half of the total number of matches he has officiated in a 30-plus year career. It has been said repeatedly in the past few months that, with the talent in the team, the seasiders should be higher on the ladder than their current ranking of fifth. For a team which has played in three of the past four grand finals, they will be hard to beat if they reach the major round. The Demons can afford to lose this Round 16 contest and still finish third or fourth. Their best approach would be to win their remaining three matches. This is a tall order for coach James McGregor and his team. PREDICTION: Kalangadoo by 15 points. Kongorong v Glencoe DIARY DATE CONFIRMED: Mort Frost’s book on the history of the Mid South East Football League will be officially launched on August 31.

There is a wealth of statistics and hundreds of photographs. Orders are now being taken for the book and they can be placed with either club officials or through the MSEFL. The launch will feature a highprofile guest speaker whose identity has yet to be announced. All past MSEFL secretaries and presidents are to be invited to the launch. WITH both teams only playing for pride, the match-up of the Murphies and the Hawks will chiefly be of academic interest. As just 19 points separated the teams when they last met on May 24, an even encounter is anticipated. With three rounds left to play, neither side is likely to move far from their current rankings in the bottom half of the ladder. Looking to 2015, Kongorong looks better placed as its senior colts side is undefeated and the red-hot premiership favourite. It is a bleaker picture will be waving the flags for the 500th time in senior company for the Hawks. His commitment to the Hawks and the MSEFL rivals that of the dog on the tuckerbox and there is not much he has not encountered in his career dating back more than 30 years. PREDICTION: Kongorong by 10 points Tantanoola v Robe HUGE HONOUR: Kalangadoo veteran, Brian Casey has been officially endorsed as a life member of the Mid South East Football League. IT is several weeks since the Roosters peaked with a 19 point win at Port MacDonnell. With no commendable form of late and patchy pre-match preparation, it is hard to see the seasiders lowering the colours of the home team at Tigerland. Tantanoola is still not assured of playing in a third consecutive first semi final. The best-case scenario for the Tigers is that they will be playing five more games in 2014 culminating in a grand final appearance on September 13. LIFE MEMBERSHIP: Kalangadoo’s Michael Jones will officially become a MSEFL life member next month. for Glencoe with its equivalent underage team currently in seventh position with just three wins. If the A grade football does not appeal, there is another reason to get along to the Kongorong Oval. Home ground goal umpire, Dave Gilbert The worst-case scenario will have the red-and-whites playing their penultimate game of the season on Saturday. Tiger utility player Matt Pilmore rolled his ankle last Saturday and is in doubt for a few weeks. His team will have too much firepower, and incentive, to drop this game. PREDICTION: Tantanoola by 30 points. Senior Colts player suspended until end of roster season THE Mid South Eastern Football League’s independent tribunal met recently to hear the charges arising from the Tantanoola v Mount Burr senior colts match on July 19. Mount Burr player, Brodie Hogan was charged with using abusive language towards an umpire and intentionally making contact with an umpire. Through his club advocate, Hogan pleaded guilty to both charges and was subsequently suspended for a total of six matches, with two matches suspended until the end of the 2015 season. He will be eligible to resume playing on August 23 which is 1st semi-final day.
