Fin­ley 3rds out­classed

Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

The ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated clash be­tween fi­nals con­tenders Fin­ley and De­niliquin didn’t de­liver the close con­test ex­pected when the two sides clashed at ‘The Cat­tery’ on Satur­day in the Murray Foot­ball League.

In near per­fect con­di­tions the well drilled De­niliquin out­fit cap­i­talised on their ob­vi­ous height and size ad­van­tage to dic­tate the tempo of the game from the out­set.

The young Fin­ley play­ers strug­gled to match the in­ten­sity of their op­po­nents and weren’t able to build any mo­men­tum de­spite their best ef­forts.

The fi­nal score­line showed De­niliquin pre­vail­ing by 50 points, 13.5 (83) to 5.3 (33).

Good play­ers for the Cats were Luke Bram­ley, Lachy Gor­don, James McCaw and Liam Os­borne, who all showed great de­ter­mi­na­tion, while Matthew Wil­son led the goal­kick­ing with three ma­jors.

This week’s home game against Ba­rooga pro­vides a per­fect op­por­tu­nity for the Cats to bounce back.

The Fin­ley thirds are fourth on the lad­der, now a game be­hind De­niliquin but two games clear of fifth spot.
