Football U12s It was a strong team performance by the Rochester side when they competed against the Runnymede football team on Sunday. Spectators were greeted by perfect weather, consistent umpiring and an exhibition of high quality skills, overhead marking and strong tackling from both teams. The Rochy midfielders consisting of Jordy Bruton, Hunter Wileman, Charlie Peacock and Jack Seabrook gave us first use of the ball and provided the forwards with plenty of scoring opportunities throughout the day. Trey White was elusive up forward early and was supported by some strong marking from Tobie Woodfine and Harrison Foster. While Harrison Keating was weaving some magic across the half forward line. Our back line was rock-solid all day. Nate Rasmussen, Blake Roulston and Noah O’Sullivan gave us plenty of run off half back. Jagger Thomas and Ethan Howard stood firm taking marks on the last line of defence. Coach Gary Milligan was very satisfied with his team’s performance considering they had a number of players unavailable. Goal Kickers: Tobie Woodfine 3, Nate Rasmussen 2, Trey White 2, Jagger Thomas 1, Flynn Pain 1, Noah O’Sullivan 1, Harrison Foster 1. Awards: Jack Seabrook, Hunter Wileman, Jordy Bruton, Jordy Rasmussen. Next week’s game is on Friday night against Echuca United, starting at 6.15pm. All players to be at the ground by 5.45. U14s On a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon at home Bailey Wileman and his U14’s knew it was going to be tough against the top of the ladder St Augustine’s. After a four goal to none first term the team pulled up their socks and playing to the coach’s advice kept the visitors to just two majors in the second. The third term saw our solitary goal scored by Darby “the goal sneak” Wileman with Rochy holding 80 per cent of the footy. There was some great defensive play throughout the day, but a four-goal final quarter to the visitors saw them come out with a convicing win. Best players: Charlie Palmer, Jonathon Lairdwaters, Darby Wileman, Lachlan Giffin and Noah O’Sullivan.
