Fin­ley thirds too good

Southern Riverina news - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Fin­ley’s thirds are con­tin­u­ing to play good foot­ball with a solid win at home against Congupna on Satur­day.

The slow starts con­tin­ued with the op­po­si­tion con­trol­ling the first five min­utes of the game and there were a few misses on goal by Fin­ley.

Some classy skills from Lachie Os­borne helped hold Congupna to a goal.

Once the Fin­ley boys were warmed up they got the ball rolling. In a phys­i­cal game the Cats were able to win the ma­jor­ity of stop­pages and move it for­ward to Duncan Clarke who was dom­i­nant across half for­ward.

Luke Bram­ley, Nik Burns and Bai­ley Coombs cre­ated mul­ti­ple scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties with some great at­tack­ing footy and vig­or­ous work ethic.

The sec­ond half was a bit of a slog and there were again missed op­por­tu­ni­ties up for­ward.

At the other end Os­borne, Nick Gray and Mar­cus An­der­son were able to re­duce Congupna’s scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and help the team to a good win. Scores, Fin­ley 8.12 to Congupna 2.7. The Fin­ley fourths had a big win against a de­pleted Congupna side on Satur­day.

The home team were able to lend some of their play­ers to the Road to en­sure all play­ers had some game time.

The match was played in great spirit en­abling skills to be fur­ther de­vel­oped at this level.

Archie Ma­son con­tin­ued his good form rov­ing well around the packs, while Harri- son King had his best game for the year kicking three goals.

Robbie Ham­man and Tom Loomes con­trolled the air­ways pro­vid­ing plenty of op­por­tu­nity to the on­ballers and Shadeau Brain played another con­sis­tent game.

The high­light of the match was the game time af­forded to the emerg­ing young tal­ent in the team and they will all ben­e­fit from the ex­pe­ri­ence.

Fin­ley are well placed in fourth spot on the lad­der with only per­cent­age sep­a­rat­ing them from the third placed De­niliquin.
