SPECIAL YEAR: North Whyalla denied West Whyalla their fourth consecutive B Grade premiership, winning the flag and staying perfect in 2021.

North Whyalla has capped a dominant season in the WFL reserves by winning their first B Grade premiership since 2015, seeing off a determined West Whyalla by 25 points.

The Magpies were undefeated going into their clash with the Dragons, and demonstrated why they were the best team all year by grinding out a 8.11 (59) to 5.4 (34) victory.

West were able to hold North spearhead James Abdulla to a single major and prevent the Magpies from running away with the game after the heavy favourites made a good start.

But it wasn't enough to keep North at bay, who maintained control of the contest and led all the way, never allowing West to get close enough to actually threaten their lead.

Lourens Victor was Best On Ground while Frederick Ward, Aaron Grimm, Kevin Sims and Darren Cole (two goals) were all standout performers for North.

Liam Croft and Ryder Kortman had two goals apiece for West, who were boosted by the performances of Cameron Dawes, Adam Haseldine and Steven Kinnear (one goal).

In the Under 18's Central Whyalla achieved footy immortality by winning their fifth Thirds premiership in a row, defeating Roopena by 65 points.

The Roosters established an early lead and never looked back, with Best On Ground Mitchell Byrne kicking four goals and Jurgen Faber and Shane Stainer having two each.

Roopena completed their undefeated season in the Under 15's by winning their third premiership in a row, rolling North Whyalla by 51 points.
