Cats found out in tough con­di­tions

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) CLASSIES -

Up to Beech­worth for an im­por­tant game that had been moved from the long week­end.

With the way the weather was the guys would have been a lot hap­pier to play the Round 9 game back on the June long week­end.

Kick­ing with the aid of the breeze in the first quar­ter, the Cats didn’t make the most of the ad­van­tage and even though we kept the Bushies goal­less we only put on two goals our­selves.

In the sec­ond quar­ter Beech­worth showed us why they are al­ways tough to beat up there as they han­dled the con­di­tions much bet­ter than us and piled on five goals to our none to take con­trol.

Af­ter the long break the Cats worked hard but the Bushies had their tails up and han­dled the wet, wild and windy con­di­tions a lot bet­ter than us and gave the Cats a wet weather foot­ball les­son.

The back­line worked hard and was led well by one of the young guys Michael Cooper, coach Wil­son did his best to lift the guys but full credit to the Bushies who sim­ply out played us.

Awards: Greg Leahy Re­me­dial Mas­sage - Michael Cooper, Com­plete Body Craft Damien Wil­son, Corowa Golf Club - Tom Quinn, Poaches Par­adise Ho­tel - Sam Fiedler, Ruther­glen Pizza - Ryan Jones, Hun­gry Jacks Bar­nawartha - Tom Maloney, Auc­tion Player Michael Cooper.

Our Re­serves han­dled the freez­ing con­di­tions bet­ter than Beech­worth and came home with the four points af­ter a very good 36-point win.

Rhys Ren­shaw and Shaun Moore both adapted to the con­di­tions well and the re­turn of Nathan Waite cer­tainly was ben­e­fi­cial to the team. Bran­don John­son again got plenty of the ball and the ex­pe­ri­ence of Matt Far­ru­gia was price­less.

Both our ju­nior grades didn’t get the re­sults they were af­ter, but fort hard in very try­ing con­di­tions with the score board not be­ing a true in­di­ca­tion of both games.
