U15s through to fi­nal

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - Sport -

Blighty's Un­der 15s have booked their spot in the Pi­cola & District League grand fi­nal fol­low­ing a nail­bit­ing four goal win on Satur­day.

The Redeyes came up against a tough Ber­ri­gan side at Ber­ri­gan with scores dead­locked at the fi­nal whis­tle.

Blighty held their nerve and played beau­ti­fully in ex­tra time to run away from the Saints.

Fi­nal score, Blighty 28 to Ber­ri­gan 24.

The Redeyes will meet their ri­val Deni Rovers in the de­cider at Me­mo­rial Park this Satur­day.

Un­for­tu­nately for Blighty both the Un­der 13s and Un­der 17s have been elim­i­nated from fi­nals.

The Un­der 13s were sim­ply no match for an un­de­feated Deni Rovers on Satur­day.

De­spite a heavy 37 point loss, the game still saw an out­stand­ing and de­ter­mined ef­fort from Gemma Mac­don­ald and Katya Eddy.

The tena­cious Ruby Caruso and Sa­mara Wat­son worked tire­lessly for op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The Redeyes should be proud of their sports­man­ship and never give up at­ti­tude.

Fi­nals score, Deni Rovers 40 to Blighty 3.

The Un­der 17s had a strong game against their Rovers coun­ter­parts, how­ever it was the Rovers that fin­ished on top by nine goals.

The Redeyes all came to­gether to keep the score tight, im­prov­ing vastly on pre­vi­ous 19 and 20 goal losses to Deni.

Blighty’s mid­courters fought hard pro­duc­ing many turnovers, de­fence stayed strong and the shoot­ers had their eye in, rarely miss­ing the op­por­tu­nity to score.

It was the last quar­ter that saw the Rovers get away in what was an en­ter­tain­ing game to watch.

Fi­nal score, Deni

43 to Blighty 34.
