Tocumwal slips to fifth

Southern Riverina news - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Five goals from John Walker helped pro­pel Picola United to a gritty Picola & District Foot­ball League vic­tory against Tocumwal on Satur­day.

The Blues led at ev­ery change, but with­stood a late burst from the Bloods to pre­vail by 15 points at Tocumwal Recre­ation Re­serve.

Fi­nal score: Picola United 11.10 (76) def. Tocumwal 9.7 (61).

Walker may not have fea­tured on the list of bet­ter play­ers for Picola United, but his im­pact on the score­board was piv­otal in a low-scor­ing con­test.

Mark Ryan, Tim Scadden, Scott Miles and Darcy Bot­ter­ill shone for the Blues, with Walker’s five-goal haul com­ple- mented by three from Tyler Chisholm.

Keith Baron again starred for Tocumwal, while Ja­cob Hore and coach Daniel Kirchen worked hard.

Dane Maxwell and Michael O’Rior­dan kicked two goals apiece for the Bloods.

Tocumwal, which beat Jer­ilderie last week, has now slipped back to fifth on the lad­der with a 5-6-1 record.

The Bloods meet fourth­placed Mathoura at Mathoura this Satur­day.
