Ju­bi­la­tion for new look Roos

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) -

re­cov­ery from a shoul­der in­jury. Not a great day for the Spencer fam­ily.

Al­though num­bers were good for round one, we are still call­ing on play­ers that may be un­de­cided, to get to John Ford Oval dur­ing the week and have a run. We need your help to con­tinue to grow as a club.

Fi­nal Scores: Corowa Ruther­glen 5.11.41 v Wan­garatta Rovers 19.14.128 Goals: J. Mont­gomery, A. Bartlett, B. Spencer, N. Kusen, S. Mont­gomery Spon­sor Awards: P. Han­cock, S. Mont­gomery, S. Lavis, A. Bartlett, Z. Ni­cholls Thirds

The U18s started well get­ting the first two goals of the game and were look­ing good un­til the Rovers switched on and fin­ished the quar­ter the bet­ter of the two teams.

The Rovers hit their straps with slick ball move­ment in the sec­ond quar­ter hit­ting the score­board with eight goals to the Roos one. With the sec­ond half about to start the boys were just asked to com­pete and that’s what they did.

But with the hot weather, and the Roos a lit­tle un­der­done, the Rovers ran away with the game. But the boys didn’t stop fight­ing all day and there were many pos­i­tives to take out of the en­counter.

Fi­nal Scores: Corowa Ruther­glen 5.6.36 v Wan­garatta Rovers 20.16.136 Goals: K. Bradtke 3, T. Baker, J. Tan­ner Spon­sor Awards: T. Baker, J. Tan­ner, M. Tan­ner, B. Spencer, M. Lavis Coaches Award: G. San­dral

There’s been a lot hap­pen­ing at the Club dur­ing the off-sea­son with the in­stal­la­tion of AFL stan­dard goal posts by Ge­off Kemp (Wah­gun­yah Ma­chin­ery & Weld­ing) and Bren­don Car­mody (BDC En­gi­neer­ing).

Thanks to Scott Wil­son and John O’Donoghue, the play­ers change rooms have been re­painted and player’s meet­ing room in- stalled. A large screen dig­i­tal score­board and time­clock has been or­dered and is due to be op­er­a­tional by the third home game of the sea­son.

And on the so­cial scene, com­ing events to in­clude a fa­ther/son night with Hawthorn leg­end Peter Hud­son and son Paul Hud­son. Golden Roo din­ner with Boomer Har­vey, with dis­counted ex­tra tickets avail­able to Golden Roos mem­bers. More de­tails to come.
