MOOREBANK Mounties Magpies are through to the second week of Sydney AFL second division finals after defeating Camden Cats by 18 points.
The Magpies won 14.17 (101) to 12.11 (83), at Gipps Road, Greystanes, on Sunday.
The Magpies finished fourth and the Cats, fifth, after the competition rounds, so it was knockout footy.
The Cats led by five points at three-quarter time but the Magpies soared in the final term kicking six goals to win the match.
Outstanding games from Blake Parker, Andrew Cruwys, Shaun Wicken, Blake Pearce, Johnathan Moore and Chris Cairns inspired the Magpies.
Magpies coach Mark Coles said he was thrilled with the result.
"Obviously, everyone is very pleased with the win, but we still need to make sure we play for four quarters," Coles said.
"We didn't make the most of our opportunities in the second quarter when the game was there to be put beyond doubt, and as a result we let a quality side back into the game.
"That said, we (the coaching staff) are very proud of how the boys dug deep in the last quarter. There is a lot of character with this group."
The Magpies play Sydney University, Sunday, 3.15pm, Gipps Road, Greystanes, in another elimination semi-final.
