In a back-and-forth tussle between the Imperials and the Southerners football clubs, it was the Southerners who came out on top after staging a fourth-quarter comeback to defeat the hosts 13.11 (89) to 11.2 (68) in round two of the Lower South West Football League. With both teams still looking for their first win of the season, the match started in favour of the hosts as consistent pressure around the midfield and great passing led to them taking the lead in the first term. Kicking four goals and one behind gave the Imperials some breathing space over the Southerners who managed to kick two goals and four behinds. In the second quarter the Southerners dug in and denied their opponents any time on the ball which caused constant turnovers capitalised on by the team in red, white and blue. The Imperials only managed to score two points in the second quarter, which was a far more physical affair than the previous passage of play. The scoreline at half-time read Imperials 5.2 (32) to Southerners 5.4 (34). After the half-time break both teams immediately got stuck into each other again but it was the Imperials who were more clinical in possession. With every kick landing where it was meant to, the Imperials managed to move the ball quickly through the field and score five goals in the period. The Southerners, while left a bit disorientated, were not out of the fight completely and kept themselves in the tie with three goals of their own. Going into the fourth quarter the Imperials led Southerners 10.2 (62) to 8.7 (55). Relentless pressure from the Southerners left the home side buckling and forced into easy slip-ups as goal after goal from the visitors sealed them a memorable victory. The best on ground for both teams included Caine Milentis, Reid Chatley, Jordan Bradley, Austin Styles, Brandy Armstrong, Lance Lucas for Imperials, and Oscar Omodei, Jack Hick, Darren Flockart, Kye Jasper, Codey Hay for the Southerners.
