EMERGING tall forward Bailey Kemp played a key role in Kolora-Noorat’s 22.8. (140) to 10.11. (71) win over Allansford on Saturday at Noorat.

The Power had to deal with a first-half challenge from the Cats that had the home team four goals down late in the second quarter.

A late flurry from the Power gave it a three-point half-time lead and laid the foundation for a second-half onslaught.

Kolora-Noorat kicked 14 goals to Allansford’s three over the last two quarters to record a big win.

Ben Fraser kicked five goals for the Power but it was the four-goal haul from Kemp that stood out for coach Danny Finn.

“Because he is such a good player, Ben gets double-teamed a bit,” Finn said.

“That frees Bailey up and he was really dangerous close to goal.

“He competed really well in the air, he’s only a young player and there is a lot of upside to him.”
