The Cobram Courier - - GAME ON -

A-grade

Strath­mer­ton d Ber­ri­gan

56-39 Strath­mer­ton fought a hard game against a tough op­po­si­tion in Ber­ri­gan.

Up by two at half-time, the Bull­dogs put their foot down in the third quar­ter and kept it go­ing for the rest of the match.

It was great to have so many ver­sa­tile play­ers in one side that can all work to­gether and good to see them putting to­gether four con­sis­tent quar­ters.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Molly Coburn on mak­ing her A-grade debut. It was also great to see ju­niors step­ping up.
