G’day footy fans! Buckle up as we dive into the SFL A Grade Men Round 4 2024.

It was an absolute cracker of a round, with teams battlin’ it out for glory, guts, and the right to brag at the local.

This round wasn’t just a contest; it was a full-blown spectacle with some standout players turning the turf into their personal stage.

So let’s tuck into the meat pie of this week’s action and see who kicked what and how the teams are stacking up after the SFL A Grade Men Round 4 2024.

Ironbank vs. Port Noarlunga

In a game that could’ve been mistaken for a shootout at the O.K. Corral, Port Noarlunga A Grade Men came out guns blazing, racking up a whopping 199 points in a total demolition job on the local boys from Ironbank.

Cockledivers Gary Karpany was the man of the hour, booting an impressive 6 goals, while former GWS Saints Zachary Sproule bagged himself 5 goals.

The Ironbank lads put up a decent fight, scoring 92 points, but let’s face it—they were more outgunned than a kangaroo in a knife fight. Port Noarlunga’s win was convincing and would have been even higher if not for some errant kicking (19 behinds), leaving the Ironbank crowd a bit more silent than usual.

The result leaves Port Noarlunga sitting pretty at 2nd on the ladder, while Ironbank holds 5th position.

Aldinga vs. Cove

Down at Aldinga, it was a tight tussle that had the spectators spilling their snag sizzles. Aldinga A Grade Men scraped through with a win over Cove, 78 to 75. This nail-biter had all the drama of a season finale of “Neighbours,” with both teams going hammer and tong until the final siren.

Christies Beach vs. Reynella
