Berrigan are back in the winners’ list following a 32-point win over Katamatite in round six of the Picola & District Football League on Saturday.

After a close first half the home side upped the ante in the third term and gave themselves some valuable breathing space with a four goal to one quarter setting up the win.

Toby Dalgliesh has hit some form of late for the Saints and was instrumental in setting up play around the ground with his neat footwork.

Kyle McQualter was as damaging as ever from the back flank and broke the lines time and again.

Angus Coldwell found himself in the best player list again with another determined game in the midfield while Berrigan coach Lee Schmidt was as dangerous as ever across half forward kicking two goals on a day where goals were hard to come by.

Ben Irvine and Cam Hall were industrious around the ground, with the win seeing the Saints hold on to sixth spot on the ladder.

Final score, Berrigan 9.17 to Katamatite 5.9 (39).

The Berrigan reserves have jumped up to fourth spot on the ladder following a 61 point win over Katamatite.

The Saints had it all their own way for the first three-and-a-half quarters before the Tigers kicked a couple of goals late in the match.

Connor Thornton stepped his game up a couple of gears with a great showing on the wing, even managing to upstage his father Craig which is no mean feat.

Loch Schifferle was again strong in the middle before succumbing to injury, while Kyle Hawker was another standout for the home side.

Simon Packer was a welcome return putting his silky skills to good use and Cody Danielson-Jenson had another solid game at half back, kicking a big goal from outside 50m.

Andrew Pyle popped in for a game and led the goal scorers with three majors.

Special mention to Simon Steel who kicked a miraculous goal in the gusty conditions to the delight of his comrades.

Final score, Berrigan 11.8 (74) to Katamatite 2.1 (13).
