Berrigan fourths player Max Cameron runs out of defence on Saturday.

Berrigan’s reserves took another scalp as they build momentum towards the end of the season winning by 127 points.

The Saints donated a few players to the short stocked Hoppers and it made for interesting viewing.

Joel Harrison put on a clinic, even getting best on ground for the opposition.

Simon Steel tried to put a hard tag on his energetic teammate in Adam Fox but the tag was quickly shaken.

Stuart Pyle was again comfortable at home up forward kicking five goals, while stay at home forward Cody Heazlewood kicked six majors.

Phil Smith showed his mastery up forward also, kicking two sensational goals with equally as good celebrations to go with them.

The midfield gladiators in Glanvill, Congdon and Baxter also impressed.

Final score, Berrigan 20.13 (133) to Yarroweyah 1.0 (6).

Berrigan’s fourths came out against Yarroweyah a little flat footed, going down by 20 points on Saturday.

Hamish Cameron had a great first quarter in defence taking six strong marks under pressure but the Saints couldn’t get the ball past the centre.

The second quarter saw a much better display of footy as Darcy Pyle cleared the ball out of the centre and found Matt Whelan who goaled in the first minute for the visitors.

The ball made it to Berrigan’s forward line at least eight times.

In the third quarter the coach gave Aiden Fennell the job of holding back Yarroweyah’s star player, who was causing them headaches, and Aiden did the job he was asked.

The fourth quarter saw Matt Whelan kick his second goal but it was too late.

Best players for the Saints were Aiden Fennell, James Curtin, Hamish Cameron, Darcy Pyle, Pat Waugh and Matt Whelan.

Final score, Yarroweyah 5.3 (33) to Berrigan 2.1 (13).

The Berrigan thirds had an easy win against an undermanned Yarroweyah, with a 136 point victory.

Goals were aplenty with Coleby Hellyer-Maud kicking seven, Ben Fox six, Brad Loats five and James Curtin and Riley Dempster two each.

Even though it was an easy win, the boys still played at their best.

Fraser Haintz, Tom Whelan, Riley Dempster, Rory Thornton, Ben Fox and Hellyer-Maud were all in the best players.

Final score, Berrigan 23.11 (149) to Yarroweyah 2.1 (13).
