Wildcats triumphant

July 27, 2017

Finley Wildcats posted an impressive 16 point win over Euroa in round 12 of the Shepparton and Districts Junior Football League Youth Girls competition on Sunday.

Playing at home, the Wildcats jumped out to a 27 point lead at three quarter time, keeping their opponent goalless up until that point.

Euroa hit back hard in the final term but weren’t able to impact the scoreboard enough, kicking a wayward 1.5.

Elouise Ashley-Cooper dominated all over the ground playing several positions in the last quarter for Wildcats.

Ruby Stewart, who travels from Hay, held on to loads of defensive marks and applied plenty of pressure in defence.

Young guns Olivia Cicolini and Lucy-Jayne Burdon dominated their positions and were awarded with being placed in the best players, playing in the forward line and back line respectively for Finley.

Rhiannon Murphy-Riddell made a successful return from injury, dominating up forward with four goals.

Charlie Mason closed out the side’s best with all players in form at the right time of the season.

Final score, Finley 5.0 (30) to Euroa 1.8 (14).

The game had plenty of highlight with Kezley Murphy-Riddell kicking a goal in her debut game.

Sophi Bury of Tocumwal is starting to hit her straps, rucking well and with loads of enthusiasm, while Olivia Wells of Strathmerton played well up forward for the Wildcats.

Wynta Brain rucked and defended well and Victoria Alexander, who hasn’t missed a game since starting mid-season, is getting stronger with her pressure in defence and her clearing of the ball.

The second placed Wildcats will take on Shepparton Notre at St Luke’s Primary School in Shepparton in a top of the table clash on Sunday at 12.30pm.
