A sizzling display from Rennie saw Berrigan suffer a 33 point loss in round 10 of the Picola and District Football League on Saturday.

Against a rock-solid Saints outfit, the Hoppers produced some of their best football of the year on their home deck, racing away early and strong enough to see off the Saints.

The star player was again Chase Strawhorn, who after returning to action three games ago has made a massive impact for the side, leading their goal kicking each game, this time with six big goals.

The second term proved costly for the Saints; the Hoppers kicking four goals while keeping the visitors goalless, ending the half with a 39 point advantage.

From there each side piled on the goals, but Berrigan could not cut into the deficit as Rennie bagged a fourth win for the season.

For Berrigan Jacob Sampson was given the nod as best afield while Harley Middleton was not far behind him kicking four goals.

Jye Adamson and Mark McQualter were again as busy as usual and the backline were well led by the team’s leaders in Grant Martin and Ben Irvine.

Final score, Rennie 17.8 (110) to Berrigan 11.11 (77).

The Hoppers and Saints are now locked on four wins, with Berrigan’s slight edge in percentage having them sit seventh on the ladder.

Berrigan’s task is even more daunting this week, facing an undefeated Waaia on Saturday.
