South Australia Country has lost its first match to Western Australia Country since 2012, falling by 40 points at the Fremantle Oval on Saturday evening.

Despite slamming on six goals in the second term to take a nine-point lead at half-time, the Croweaters were held scoreless in the third term while the hosts went on a scoring rampage.

The Sandgropers banged on 8.2 in the premiership quarter to set up their first victory in the last five meetings between the two rivals.

Former Glenelg defender Aisea Raikiwasa was adjudged as SA’s best player, fittingly awarded the Barry Stringer Medal.

SA midfielders Jack Kelly, Campbell Combe and Brian Fenton all tried hard but the momentum the black and gold outfit built in the second half proved too much to overcome.
