Published on: Aug 28 2017 | Author: Zac Milbank |

Woodville-West Torrens has won the 2017 Stanley H. Lewis Trophy as the SANFL’s best performed club for the fourth time in five seasons.

With both their Macca’s League team finishing as minor premier, the Eagles tallied a total of 2325 points to finish ahead of second-placed Sturt on 2200 points.

Despite having only two teams, Port finished with 2000 points to finish in third place ahead of improving South Adelaide on 1900.

The Eagles first claimed the Trophy in their first league premiership year (1993), with their most recent successes coming in 2013, 2015 and 2016.

The Trophy, named after past SANFL Chairman Stanley Heathcote Lewis, has been awarded since 1962 to the club which has displayed excellence across all grades of football.

Points are awarded for each win across the minor round, with 100 points allocated for a League victory, 50 points for the Reserves and 50 for an Under-18 triumph.

In the event of a draw, half of the points allocated for a win in that grade are awarded to each club involved.
