Tom played a fan­tas­tic game, boot­ing three goals to be named best on ground in the Pi­cola & Dis­trict League round 13 game.

The match was set up beau­ti­fully by Blighty with a nine goal first quar­ter, with the high­light be­ing the way the young Redeyes shared the foot­ball with each other.

Oth­ers who per­formed well for Blighty were Louis Behs­man, Jack Charlton, Dean Mac­don­ald, Will Bull and Harry Sides.

In a much an­tic­i­pated Mur­ray League round 13 clash, the Rams fourths took on the un­de­feated Co­bram, go­ing down to the lad­der leader by 28 points.

For three quar­ters the young Rams stuck with the Tigers, with only four points the dif­fer­ence go­ing into the fi­nal term at Scott Oval.

But in the end the stronger Co­bram bod­ies ran in a few easy goals for the home side.

The Rams’ back­line wel­comed back Tom Bradley from in­jury and he had a great day, as­sisted by Luke Todd who switched to de­fence and marked strongly

On­ballers Charlie Hil­lier and Tom Mc­Cal­lum bat­tled hard all day, run­ning, tack­ling and farm­ing the ball out from con­test to con­test.

Luke Lear­month and Darcy McManus marked strongly, Miller Fitz­patrick, Mar­cus Moorse and Noah Bradley con­trolled their po­si­tions, and backs Brodie Park, Harry Dud­ley, Lo­gan Leiper and Lu­gaidh Jen­ningsGal­lagher bat­tled hard all game for the Rams.

Fi­nal score, Co­bram 5.13 (43) to Deni Rams 2.3 (15).

The Rams thirds suf­fered their first loss of the sea­son, go­ing down to third placed Co­bram by 10 points in a thriller.

A strong first half from the vis­i­tors saw them hold a two goal lead at the main break, but it was the home side com­ing home strongly, kick­ing 5.1 to 1.3 in the sec­ond half to end the Rams’ dom­i­nant run.

On­baller Will Shaw was Deni’s best, with good sup­port from Jake McManus and Ryan Mac­Don­ald.

Oth­ers Rams who played well were Alec Buck­ley, Harry Hil­lier and Cody Lear­month.

The Deni Rovers fourths made light work of an­other chal­lenger in the Pi­cola & Dis­trict League, with a 120 point win over fourth placed Pi­cola United on Satur­day.

The top of the lad­der Roos were dom­i­nant in all four quar­ters, with Nick Stub­bings and Pat West­cott cel­e­brat­ing their 50th club games in style.

Brock Red­den was a stand­out at cen­tre half for­ward, boot­ing seven ma­jors in a best on ground ef­fort.

Haydn Mowat, Lachy Hil­lier and Ray­mond Mu­phy (three goals) con­trolled the game in the mid­dle of the ground, with plenty of run pro­vided on the wing by Jace Collins and from half back by Maisy Ed­wards.

Fi­nal score, Deni Rovers 18.18 (126) to Pi­cola Utd 1.0 (6).

After a few weeks off the Rovers thirds had a fan­tas­tic 31 point win over Pi­cola.

The Roos started well but were a bit rusty and un­able to cap­i­talise when go­ing for­ward.

Bai­ley Townsend started the game well, pro­vid­ing plenty of run and carry from the back­line and Rusty Mil­ward stopped every­thing that came his way.

In the sec­ond half the Rovers took con­trol of gen­eral play but a few quick goals to the home side kept them within reach.

A stel­lar third quar­ter from Hay­den Gar­diner, Ben East and a mir­a­cle goal from Bran­don Arm­strong gave the vis­i­tors plenty of mo­men­tum to fin­ish the game strong.

Brock Thom­son was again out­stand­ing at cen­tre half for­ward and An­thony Zielke dom­i­nated the ruck to round out the best play­ers.

Fi­nal score, Deni Rovers 10.16 (76) to Pi­cola Utd 7.3 (45).
