In su­perb con­di­tions at the Al­bury Sports­ground Yar­ra­wonga and Wodonga Raiders put on su­perb show­case of Un­der 14 foot­ball in a high class, com­pet­i­tive game.

There was no room for the faint hearted as play­ers con­tin­u­ally put their body on the line in what was a pres­sure filled at­mos­phere.

Hunter Sur­rey dis­played his class with a dom­i­nant dis­play both in the air and at ground level, the on­baller/for­ward was in­stru­men­tal fin­ish­ing with 3 match defin­ing goals and the AWJFL medal for best of ground.

Caleb Mitchell and Olly Ri­d­ley were su­perb through the mid­field whilst Mitch Lough­nan, Charley McKenna and Ge­off Mont­gomery ran all day on the wing.

Thomas Gor­man was the dom­i­nant big man on the ground, win­ning the ma­jor­ity of tap outs and push­ing hard all over the ground to en­sure his team­mates had a clear pas­sage to the ball.

The back­line was su­perbly led by Co-Cap­tain Sam Hem­phill who did not lose a con­test all day, Hud­son Gil­lies, Hunter Frauen­felder, Bren­dan Ryan, Jye Leonard and Zach Cum­mins com­peted hard to re­strict to their op­po­nents.

Bot­tom age dy­namo Lach­lan Phillips was ‘Alex Rance’ like across the full back line, back­ing him­self to run down the field and set up scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for the for­wards.

Key for­ward Jack Tout marked ev­ery­thing that came his way kick­ing 3 goals to high­light his class and po­ten­tial.

Full for­ward Jyda House set up the game early with a goal and goal as­sist to in the first quar­ter to get his team rolling.

Jobe Kennedy, Ethan Byne and Hugh Mullins ran hard all day to en­sure there was an op­tion across half for­ward whilst pro­vid­ing for­ward pres­sure in the for­ward 50.

Zac Fraser’s hands in tight and abil­ity to use team­mates fur­ther up the ground was a high­light of the game whilst bot­tom age dy­namos Mac Pen­der­gast (1 goal), Jett Peters, Alex Di Cioc­cio and Xavier Walker all had an im­pact at cru­cial times.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Beau Cum­mins, Rudi Vo­dusek, Darcy Hicks, Harry Barker, Nathan Weir and Beau Cum­mins for their con­tri­bu­tion and train­ing stan­dards dur­ing the sea­son, all six boys are set for a big year in the Un­der 14’s in 2019.

Thanks to the army of vol­un­teers who sup­ported the Un­der 14 pro­gram in 2018.
