The Shep­par­ton Dis­trict Ju­nior Football League un­der-16 sea­son is prov­ing as un­pre­dictable as the AFL.

There are close re­sults ev­ery­where you turn and only two games sep­a­rates Shep­par­ton United Blue on top of the lad­der and Echuca White in ninth.

That even­ness came to the sur­face on Sun­day as the Mur­ray Bombers held off a late chal­lenge to de­feat an in­ac­cu­rate De­mons by six points.

Shep­par­ton United Red got one back, over­com­ing a three-quar­ter-time deficit to de­feat Mooroopna by eight points.

Shep­par­ton Swans came within 10 points of knock­ing off Kyabram Black, with Will Dwyer, Josh Rachele (four goals), Jaxon Thomas, Ty Suther­land and Ma­son Trevaskis in top form.

The Bombers’ best were Mitchell Gugliotti, Liam Dil­lon, Cooper Vick and Kalab Ford.

Shep­par­ton Notre Gold booted 10 goals in the sec­ond half to se­cure a 25-point win against Rochester.
