Ber­ri­gan footy re­ports:

Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

The Ber­ri­gan re­serves con­tin­ued their win­ning form on Satur­day and are now sit­ting a game clear in fifth po­si­tion on the PDFL north-west lad­der.

The team put to­gether a great three­quar­ter ef­fort to keep Tocumwal to one goal up un­til the fi­nal quar­ter.

Toc. kicked four straight goals in the last quar­ter with the Saints tak­ing the foot off the pedal but man­ag­ing to hold on for the win by 35 points.

Some great in­di­vid­ual ef­forts from Adam Fox and Crag Glanvill who con­tinue their con­sis­tent form. Ged Towler im­pressed up for­ward with four goals and Matt Cameron con­trib­uted well through the mid­dle and half back line.

Well done also to Joel Har­ri­son, one of our

MFL

most com­mit­ted foot­ballers, who had a great game against the Bloods.

It was an all im­por­tant match for Tocumwal and Ber­ri­gan in the thirds, as the win­ner would stay in the top five.

It was a close con­test in the first half with Ma­son Peters work­ing tire­lessly in the back line along­side Ri­ley Dempster and the young Saints were able to make the most of op­por­tu­ni­ties driv­ing the ball for­ward.

There were plenty of goal­kick­ers — Brad Loats, Ben Fox, Fraser Haintz, Tom Whe­lan, Colby Hel­lyer-Maude and Mani Tan­ner — and the Saints were up 6.2 to 3.5 at the main break.

Toc. came out stronger in the third quar­ter and Ber­ri­gan had to work hard to stay in touch. In the fourth term Ber­ri­gan was a point down and strug­gled to keep up, only scor­ing a point and in the end los­ing by 27 points.

The Ber­ri­gan fourths took on lad­der leader Tocumwal and again gave ev­ery­thing they have.

The back line led by Ben Ack­erly and Max Cameron worked hard along with John O’Neill.

It was al­ways go­ing to be a hard match against a taller and stronger side.

Ber­ri­gan’s awards went to Jebe­diah Mey­erVale who played his best game for the year, Jim Curtin, Ben Ack­erly, John O’Neill, Caleb Thorn­ton and Ai­den Fennell.
