Timbercutters take the reserves points

August 04, 2017

Berrigan’s seconds fell victim to a well stocked Mathoura outfit on Saturday.

The Saints couldn’t quite capitalise on the scoreboard and the Timbercutters ran away with it, winning 11.8 (74) to Berrigan’s 5.6 (36).

James Ware was best on ground as he seamlessly weaved his way through waves of desperate Mathoura forwards to set the Saints up from the last line of defence.

James Morrow has hit some white hot form as of late with the Sherrin seeming to be drawn to him like a magnet.

Steve Morgan crashed his way through in typical fashion while Benny Fox put his cheetah-like pace to good use.

Matty Cameron was again a vital cog and did what he could while Joe Gorman danced his way around opponents just like he did in his glory days in the fourths.

Thirds: The thirds had a convincing win over a tough opposition in Mathoura, scores 9.11 (65) to 2.2 (14).

Tom Whelan was at his usual best along with Fraser Haintz, Josh McQualter, Brad Loats and Ben Fox. Mason Peters kicked a beautiful goal from 50 metres sealing the victory.

The thirds are just hanging in for the finals race and this week take on Strathmerton — a win will see them play in finals.

Fourths: The fourths started off firing on a very windy morning.

James Curtin was back to his best along with Max Cameron who has had a great year in the backline. Caleb Thornton and John O’Neill had an impressive second half.

Mathoura were stronger and took the four points — 4.6 (30) to 0.2 (2).

This Saturday the fourths will have breakfast at the café at 8am, kindly donated by Debbie Burley. They will then walk to the ground together and get ready for their last game of the season.
