The Finley Under 14s produced another great performance to defeat Moama by 30 points at Moama on Saturday.

The young Cats have now won three games in succession to start their Murray League campaign under Mark Milthorpe’s guidance and the boys are developing their football skills at a rapid rate.

Talls Tom Loomes and Rob Hammon took control of the airways and dominated this area of the game.

Ben Chesworth was instrumental in defence taking control and turning defence into attack.

The young Cats had all the momentum leading into half time.

After the break Finley continued the pressure through Joc Brain, Jacob Armer and Eli Sutton.

Archie Mason made a welcome return to the team and with Shadeau Brain provided a touch of class around the stoppages.

Final score, Finley 9.7 (61) to Moama 4.7 (31)

A depleted Under 17s had the daunting task of taking on the reigning premiers Moama at home.

The Cats were heavily undermanned due to a combination of injuries and school holidays.

Coming up against a strong Moama side it was always going to be a tough day at the office, and two late withdrawals meant the depth was truly tested.

To the team’s credit they gave a red hot crack, with multiple players stepping up to the challenge.

The top age players showed the way with Duncan Clarke and Dylan Maxwell restricting Moama’s scoring opportunities.

Through the middle Tristan Doyle, Luke Bramely, Dylan Sibraa, Lachlan Kerr and Nick Burns tried hard all day.

Up and comers in Hugh Jamieson, Nick Lunn and Harry John showed great bursts of ability and intensity and will only excel with more opportunity to show their skills.

Final score, Moama 11. 17 (83) to Finley 3.1 (19).
