Yar­ra­wonga 51 de­feated Wodonga 30 With coach Mulquiney still away, the Pi­geons saw Jackie fill in again and come away with another great win.

Play­ing the bot­tom side gave Yarra ver­sa­til­ity in mak­ing moves and try­ing out new tac­tics.

A good start saw the Pi­geons up by 9 goals at quar­ter time and 20 goals at half time. El­lie D and Laura D mov­ing well and shoot­ing con­sis­tently.

Mid-courters Ebony W, Brigid P, Jackie F and Clare O were strong and fast and got nu­mer­ous turnovers.

Wodonga came back in the third quar­ter with Yarra win­ning the quar­ter by only a goal. Still up by enough to make some moves, Jayanna went into goals help­ing the Pi­geons ex­tend the lead once again.

De­fend­ers Paris, Jay and Clare worked hard

A bit­ter cold day at Wodonga but the foot­ball and net­ball ac­tion was hot, 7/7 strong wins for the YFNC.

The se­nior foot­ballers setup for a crack at the Mag­pies next.

James Jor­don’s se­nior de­but was ex­cit­ing for sup­port­ers, and a proud mo­ment for his de­voted mum.

Well done to Terry Cartwright who took over Un­der 18s coach­ing reins while Ross was away.

All se­nior and ju­nior teams have this week­end off. Rest up and en­joy the break. There won’t be any Thurs­day night tea this week.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Harry Wheeler and Bran­don Symes (open) and Matt Casey (Un­der 19) who have been selected in Vic Coun­try squads.
