Bears go down to Li­ons in lo­cal derby

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

A big crowd turned out to see Tungamah and Mul­wala re­sume their lo­cal ri­valry af­ter a thirty-two-year hia­tus.

Fit­tingly be­fore the game the “Rod Stacey Stand” was of­fi­cially opened and ap­pre­ci­ated by all. The Bears had come to play and were well in the game with Jake Jones and on­ballers Bodhi Butts, Brady Hayes and Chris Pow­ell clear­ing the ball well to pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for Brent Chap­man, Pow­ell and Travis Hayes to score early goals.

Re­serves

Tungamah 7. 7. 49 def by Mul­wala 13. 9. 87. Awards : Pel­i­can Ho­tel - Alan Richard­son, One Zach - A Con­nell.

Thirds

Tungamah 60 def Mul­wala 39. Tungamah hosted Mul­wala at the Bear pit for the Bears 1st home game of the sea­son.

Mul­wala kicked the open­ing goal, then Tunga stead­ied and held a 2-goal lead at quarter time.

It was a very even con­test, a game played in good spirit.

Tungamah was threat­ened in the last quarter with Mul­wala tak­ing the lead, but then the Bears stead­ied the ship with a few late goals to even­tu­ally win their first Mur­ray FNL game of footy for Tungamah FNC, a win by 21 points.

Fourths

Tungamah 7.2.44 def by Mul­wala 11.3.69. The Bears youngest men put in a top ef­fort in their first game against a Mur­ray League side, their mates (now ri­vals).

Af­ter a slow first half, down by quite a num­ber of goals at half time, the boys came out in the 3rd quarter with de­ter­mi­na­tion and great team work to bring the game back to only a goal or so dif­fer­ence.

In the end go­ing down by 4 goals but not due to a lack of ef­fort.

Best: Seth Hae­bich, Luke Mills, Paul Mills, Liam Wil­liams, Jake Walker and Har­vey Thom­son.

Awards: Crusty Loaf Bak­ery - Jake Walker; McDon­alds - Thomas Costi­gan; Sub­way - Paul Mills; Tunga Mer­chan­dise - Aaron Mills.

Chris Pow­ell looks to kick to a team­mate dur­ing the Bears loss to old ri­vals Mul­wala.
