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

CDHBU ran last sea­son’s run­ner-up Jin­dera all the way be­fore go­ing down by nine­points in an en­ter­tain­ing game at Coreen.

The Power con­tin­ued their high pres­sure game from last week to have Jin­dera un­der the pump from the first bounce. Kade Rowe was prom­i­nent along with Rus­sell An­der­son as the Power took a two-point lead into quar­ter time 3.2.20 to 3.0.18.

The sec­ond quar­ter con­tin­ued with great pres­sure with Cal But­ler and Shan­non Broad­bent lead­ing the way, while Cody Howard’s pace was caus­ing prob­lems for the Bull­dogs. But the Power were un­able to make the Jin­dera pay kick­ing two goals five for the quar­ter to lead at half time 5.7.37 to 5.1.31.

The Power kicked two early goals in the third quar­ter to get out to an 18-point lead be­fore Jin­dera slowly got back into the con­test to only trail by five points at the last change 8.8.56 to 8.3.51.

The game was an arm wres­tle for the first twelve min­utes with Jin­dera lead­ing by a point be­fore three quick goals got them a handy lead. But the Power kept com­ing back and when the siren sounded Jin­dera was in front 13.6.84 to 11.9.75.

The Re­serves had a heart-break­ing five­point loss to the un­de­feated lad­der lead­ers Jin­dera. The pres­sure from the boys was su­perb right from the first bounce which Jin­dera found hard to score against. The back­line, led by Lloyd Lohse and Cam Dut­ton, were right on top and with Mitchell Clifton & Sam Sarah lend­ing great sup­port, Jin­dera found it hard to score. This en­abled the Power to stay in the con­test and when Royce Gre­gory slot­ted his sec­ond goal and Brad Lewis kicked two goals in the last quar­ter the Power had hit the front by a point with five min­utes left. The Power tried to hang on but Jin­dera was able to kick a goal in the last minute as the Power went down 6.5.41 to 6.0.36.

The Thirds were a few short this week with un­avail­abil­ity but Jin­dera helped out with a few play­ers and with their help in the third quar­ter the game was re­ally even. With Blayre Smith able to kick two goals and Tris­tan Hall kick­ing one the Power was only outscored by a goal. Jai Kil­patrick made the most of his chances in the last quar­ter slot­ting a goal but Jin­dera was too good win­ning 25.13.163 to 4.1.25.
