United 0 From the outset Cobram pushed forward with numbers and peppered United’s goals.
Cobram’s defence of Thomas Corso, Luke Goodin, Harry Paterson and Lachie Kelly was impenetrable. Harry provided great run and carry, pushing the ball forward, and Thomas was cool, marshalling the backline.
Sonny Rowe, Jesse Wakeman and Logan Stone provided some wonderful through balls which resulted in goals and Jake Brincat was in the thick of the action creating chances.
Jackson Coopman and Jake Kalz were lethal up front and Xavier Spiller was unlucky to not convert from the penalty spot.
The goals were shared well with Jackson scoring four, Jake three, Jesse and the fourth minute of the match. This started an avalanche of goals for Sam, who had netted six by halftime.
These were facilitated by a dominant defence and midfield who kept feeding the balls to him.
The Roar, buoyed by their sizeable lead, started off the second half a little sluggishly. This let Albury sneak in a goal.
But that kicked Cobram back into gear, with Toby Shilling and Ella Lissington scoring another two goals.
It was a great team effort by everybody and a welldeserved victory.
Goals: S. Wood, T. Shilling and E. Lissington.
Best: S. Wood, D. Cheong and A. Fotia.
