Finley thirds too good

By Southern Riverina News

Finley’s thirds are continuing to play good football with a solid win at home against Congupna on Saturday.

The slow starts continued with the opposition controlling the first five minutes of the game and there were a few misses on goal by Finley.

Some classy skills from Lachie Osborne helped hold Congupna to a goal.

Once the Finley boys were warmed up they got the ball rolling. In a physical game the Cats were able to win the majority of stoppages and move it forward to Duncan Clarke who was dominant across half forward.

Luke Bramley, Nik Burns and Bailey Coombs created multiple scoring opportunities with some great attacking footy and vigorous work ethic.

The second half was a bit of a slog and there were again missed opportunities up forward.

At the other end Osborne, Nick Gray and Marcus Anderson were able to reduce Congupna’s scoring opportunities and help the team to a good win.

Scores, Finley 8.12 to Congupna 2.7.

The Finley fourths had a big win against a depleted Congupna side on Saturday.

The home team were able to lend some of their players to the Road to ensure all players had some game time.

The match was played in great spirit enabling skills to be further developed at this level.

Archie Mason continued his good form roving well around the packs, while Harrison King had his best game for the year kicking three goals.

Robbie Hamman and Tom Loomes controlled the airways providing plenty of opportunity to the onballers and Shadeau Brain played another consistent game.

The highlight of the match was the game time afforded to the emerging young talent in the team and they will all benefit from the experience.

Finley are well placed in fourth spot on the ladder with only percentage separating them from the third placed Deniliquin.
