The 1st quarter was a tight tussle with the Tungamah boys matching it with Nathalia, playing Bears brand of football. But that’s where it ended, with the Bears beaten by a stronger quicker outfit that outplayed them. Having 2 of the big men go down didn’t help the outcome but no excuses.

Next week is another opportunity to show the supporters Tungamah are better than that and play their best footy.
