Young Fin­ley side home by one goal

Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

The Fin­ley thirds con­sol­i­dated their po­si­tion in the top six with a hard fought one­goal win over emerg­ing ri­vals, Congupna on Satur­day.

An in­spi­ra­tional per­for­mance from Zec Cup­pens pro­pelled the young Cats to an early lead and with bustling young­ster Kodi Cain also to the fore, they were able to dic­tate the tempo of the game un­til mo­men­tum shifted late in the third quar­ter.

Congupna swung sev­eral po­si­tional changes and this sparked an un­likely late re­vival.

De­spite re­lin­quish­ing the lead early in the last term Fin­ley were able to hold their nerve

and sealed the win cour­tesy of a great team goal de­liv­ered via James Mc­Caw.

All play­ers once again played their role in the win with some of the more prom­i­nent be­ing Luke Bram­ley, Liam Os­borne, Dun­can Clarke and Dan O’Bryan.

Dy­lan Si­braa con­trib­uted two goals in an­other solid per­for­mance.

Fi­nal score, Fin­ley 6.6 (42) to Congupna 5.6 (36).

The Fin­ley thirds also had a spe­cial night this week with ex-Syd­ney Swans player and for­mer lo­cal David Mur­phy tak­ing the young Cats for a train­ing run on Mon­day.

Mur­phy was vis­it­ing his fa­ther Ray in Fin­ley and de­cided to im­part his knowl­edge and love of foot­ball to the side.

He lived in Fin­ley un­til he was 18 year­sold, at­tend­ing St Joseph's Pri­mary and Fin­ley High School, be­fore mov­ing to the Wagga Wagga sub­urb of Tur­vey Park.

The pacey winger started his footy ca­reer at the Swans as a 21 year-old in 1984, play­ing 156 games, re­cently be­ing named on the wing in the Syd­ney Swans’ Team of the Cen­tury.
