Reserves: Jerilderie 3.4 (22) lost to Berrigan 15.9 (99).
It was good to have extra numbers this week, although the Demons still rely on thirds players coming up each week.
Up forward Greg Lawton was dangerous all day, while Brody Newton was one of the best for Jerilderie.
Ben Barlow and Henderson Patu tried their hardest, while down in the backline Lachie Watson, Cadman Ham and Fraser Pinnuck were fighting out of their weight division, but never gave up and fought it out to end.
U17s: Jerilderie 16.14 (110) def. Berrigan 1.2 (8).
In a game where the score didn’t reflect how well Berrigan played, Jerilderie were able to get the ball down to the forwards with Jordy Anthony kicking five goals and Nash Fitzgerald kicking three.
Bohdi Beasley was good forward around the ball, while the onball brigade of Nick Baldwin, Josh Rochford and Zac Barlow gave the Demons plenty of drive.
In the backline Fraser Pinnuck and Sam Owen were reliable as always and it was good to see the fourths players step up to help out too.
U14s: Jerilderie 4.7 (31) def. Berrigan 3.1 (19).
It was a great start by the young Demons with Brock Kocks showing great ball gathering skills and Oliver Knight scoring two goals to give Jerilderie a 17 point lead at the first break.
In the second term, the Demons took their foot off the pedal and let the young Saints back in the game.
Travis Lawton gathered plenty of possessions, while Cruz Nash had a run up forward and kicked the Demons’ only goal for the term. After the main break, both sides were desperate for the ball with neither side kicking a goal for the quarter. Zander Nash tried hard all day and Austin Mauger played with eyes only for the ball.
The final term saw the ball spend a lot of time in the Demons forward line, but Berrigan’s pressure meant scoring opportunities were limited. The smallest player on the field, Dan Eldridge, had a great game and Oliver Knight kicked a nice goal after playing on from a mark.
