Jerilderie's Zander Nash has a kick on the run in the Under 14s on Saturday.

Reserves: Jerilderie 7.1 (43) def. by Tocumwal 6.8 (44).

Jerilderie started well with Hendo Patu kicking a tremendous goal on the run.

Onballers Jack Anthony and Ned Beasley played well, providing plenty of drive around the ground.

As the game went on the Demons maintained the pressure with Cameron Arnold playing well across half back, going into the main break down by just 11 points.

The third term was an even battle with Fraser Pinnuck playing well off half back and Tom Murphy in everything running off the wing.

Jerilderie lifted in the final quarter with Steve Marshall and coach Luke Keating leading the charge and were unlucky to finally go down by just one point.

Under 17s: Jerilderie 9.7 (61) def .Tocumwal 6.9 (45).

It was a big struggle for the undefeated Demons who had to work hard all day, only getting in front on the scoreboard in the last quarter.

Mitch A’Vard tried hard all day, while up forward Jordy Anthony had to work hard for his goals.

Glenn Dilullo played well to chip in with two goals and John Lawton ran hard and threw himself into every contest.

The backline, led by Nick Baldwin, stood tall with Sam Owen, Riley Belling, Fraser Pinnuck and Rory Knight giving their all.

As the game wore on the Demons slowly clawed back the lead, with Charlie Simpson playing well off half forward with other fourths players Oliver Knight and Zander Nash also contributing to the victory.

Under 14s: Jerilderie no score def. by Tocumwal 12.7 (79).

Tocumwal came out firing but to the Demons’ credit they limited the Bloods’ shots on goal.

Rory Knight was solid in defence, while Austin Mauger showed great tackling and attack on the ball.

With the backline under constant pressure they stood tall, especially in the third quarter where they held Tocumwal to just two goals.

Soumyajit Roy played well when moved to full back, while onballers Travis Lawton and Zander Nash battled hard all day against much bigger opponents.
