U12s — Blue
The wet weather couldn’t stop the under 12s on Friday night, where the Echuca United Blue and Echuca Bombers played off under lights at 7.30pm
Both sides gave it their all, with both teams showing great sportsmanship in a very good game of footy.
This week’s awards went to: Noah Schmedje made sure he was hard to handle, James Graham never stopped attacking the ball, Jett Lia was great in any position and Cooper Wallis gave it his all for four quarters.
Echuca United Gold headed out to Lockington on Friday night in trying conditions to take on LBU.
The game was a great arm wrestle, with LBU kicking some late goals to run away with the win.
Lenny Cook and Kane Sidebottom gave great drive out of the middle and across half back, constantly rebounding LBU forward thrusts.
Tylan Batey stood tall for Gold as one of the few key position players against a larger opposition and provided a great focal point.
Ash Broadhead showed initiative playing forward and back pockets at times, with Tom Fish playing a great game at full forward.
U14s — Echuca United (16.16) 112 def. Tungamah (1.2) 8
We travelled to Tungamah to take on the Bears and it was evident from the first bounce that it wasn’t going to be easy.
With Beau Trahar in the ruck the boys in the middle were getting first use of the ball giving our forwards great opportunities.
The back line was strong with pressure applied by the young Bears.
Max Childs led by example in the middle helping feed Jarryd Taylor four goals and the pocket rocket Ryan Smith five goals.
All in all it was a great team win.
Goals: Ryan Smith 5, Jarryd Taylor 4, Will Graham, Riley Godfrey, Max Childs, Ollie Poole, Bodhi Chique, Tyson Hay, Colby Campbell 1.
