Tocumwal footy:

Southern Riverina news - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Un­der 14s: The Tocumwal boys were back to their best against Pi­cola United — dis­ci­plined, ap­ply­ing con­sis­tent pres­sure and us­ing the ball well.

Zan­der Grif­fin, Bai­ley Ma­son and Tom Barker dom­i­nated the stop­pages.

Chase Hard­widge, Hay­den Davis and Connor Crow­ley read the play beau­ti­fully and Blair Eddy had a great game for his 50th match.

Un­der 17s: Tocumwal fell just one point short of up­set­ting a strong Pi­cola side on Satur­day

Dy­lan Maxwell, Mitchell Reilly (five goals), Jesse Col­ston and Reilly Ren­nick were bet­ter play­ers for the day.

The Bloods sit just one win out­side of the top five fol­low­ing the heart­break­ing loss.

Re­serves: The first quar­ter again proved to be Tocumwal’s worst for the game, lead­ing to a 98 point loss.

Pi­cola man­aged to cap­i­talise on all their first quar­ter op­por­tu­ni­ties to boot six goals straight to take a six goal lead into the first break.

The Bloods to their credit hit back hard with some won­der­ful tack­ling and kept the lad­der lead­ers to one sec­ond quar­ter goal.

The sec­ond half was hotly con­tested footy with the Blues hav­ing to bat­tle hard for any scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

But the top team were too good for a hard work­ing Bloods out­fit.

Tocumwal’s best were Paul Quick, Ben and Corey Herezo, Char­lie Kelly, Tim Brun­skill and Glyn Mat­ters.
