Seniors fourth quarter
Update: A Bennett mark and snap in the square sees the margin blow out to 23 points, Parrots in trouble.
Update: Bennett with another forward mark to put the result almost beyond doubt. He's missed but a 17-point deficit will be tough from here
Four goals to Hillwood have seen the Sharks storm to a 16 point lead with 17 minutes played. Tom Bennett has been a huge target up forward with him, Chamberlain, Jake Pearce and Moore slotting through majors.

Quarter-time in seniors
After one of the most entertaining NTFA seasons in history, the biggest day on the local footballing calendar is finally here.
Come 4.30, NTFA's premier division will have a new standard bearer as either Hillwood or Bridgenorth will stand victorious on Windsor Park with the other left in despair.
NTFA finals fever
Both sides are chasing their first premiership in over eight years with Bridgenorth's last victory their 2010 double and Hillwood's coming at the turn of the century.
The Parrots will have a chance to clean-sweep the competition, participating in all three finals - under-18s against Longford, reserves also against the Tigers and finally, seniors.
