Victory over Panthers keeps Myrtleford in the top four

-

The entire team savoured the win but it was a special match for Josh Muraca, who played his first senior match.

“Josh Muraca was really solid in his first senior game,” Simpson said.

“He put in a really pleasing preseason and certainly strung a lot of good games together in the reserves; he carried that through to the seniors he kicked a really good goal for us in the third quarter, which gave the boys a really good lift.

“Injury-wise we got through unscathed which is good.

“It was a physical match, which is what we want our brand of footy, and they held up their end of the physicalit­y.

“We’re ready to go again this weekend against Yarrawonga.”

The Saints reserves went down in their match 8.6 (54) to 11.13 (79); Luke Quirk kicked two, while Kane Michelini and Corey Southers turned in best on performanc­es.

The thirds had a big win 14.9 (93) to 4.7 (31)m Josh Jones leading the way with four majors.
