Saints second after smashing Hoppers

By Southern Riverina News

Berrigan have crept back to second spot after a crushing 160 point defeat of Yarroweyah in round 13 of the Picola & District League on Saturday.

The Saints did as they pleased in a telling team performance with Ted Walliss top scoring with nine majors, while also unselfishly dishing one off in the goal square.

There were 12 individual goal scorers on the day but it was the ferocious Matt Mahon who was chosen as best on ground with his miserly defensive work.

Rounding out the best was the onball brigade in Harley Middleton, Angus Coldwell and the Beams brothers — Tom and Jake.

Jack Robinson was also a notable inclusion with his work on the back flank.

Final score, Berrigan 29.19 (193) to Yarroweyah 5.3 (33).

The undefeated Saints reserves are now two wins clear on top of the table after a 98 point win against the Hoppers.

Craig Glanvill was named best on ground after another high possession game from the backline while also kicking four goals.

Ged Towler top scored with five goals in a commanding display while Steve Morgan was again strong from centre half back.

Young mids Adam Fox, Mason Peters and Jarren Osborn gave plenty of dash around the ground.

This week’s dishonourable mention goes to Tyson Marett who after 10 attempts on goal registered no points for his side.

Final score, Berrigan 17.9 (111) to Yarroweyah 2.1 (13).

The Berrigan fourths also had a solid win by 142 points.

Even though Hamish Cameron kicked 11 majors for the day it was Darcy Pyle who took home the chocolates with a ruthless game across the midfield.

Matt Whelan was solid again also kicking three goals while Xavier Fox and Caleb Thornton were dangerous all day.

Liam Brown rounded out the best after bagging himself five goals in a strong display.

Final score, Berrigan 21.16 (142) to Yarroweyah no score.
