Hop­pers open ac­count with big win

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

Ren­nie de­feated Yar­roweyah at Yar­roweyah by an im­pres­sive 111 points in round three of the Pi­cola Foot­ball Net­ball League.

It was Hop­pers v Hop­pers and Ren­nie took the early ad­van­tage with Ed­nie and come­back king Rhodes kick­ing 5 be­tween them in the first term.

They capped off the up­field work of firstgamer McCal­lum and Tem­pany on the wings, Free­man through the mid­dle and Wil­son at half back.

The second quarter saw more of the same as Ed­nie had 6 by the mid­dle of the term be­fore go­ing to the bench. Run­nalls and Ben Welsh were ap­ply­ing the pres­sure to keep the ball for­ward and Clarke was solid in de­fence.

Af­ter half time Fer­gu­son con­tin­ued his strong lead­ing and mark­ing at half for­ward and young Joel O’Dwyer kept on pro­vid­ing de­fen­sive drive.

Dykes grabbed a cou­ple of goals late in the game and great to see Alex Lovel kick his first se­nior goal. Rhodes and Ed­nie ended with 6 each in an even team per­for­mance.

Player in­cen­tives went to Tem­pany, Clarke, Rhodes and Run­nalls and the Yar­ra­wonga Ho­tel award went to Sam Fer­gu­son.
