Leeton-Whitton 24.17.161 d Temora 2.0.12
THE Crows travelled to Temora on Saturday to take on the plucky Kangaroos.
Temora started well kicking the first goal after a sea-sawing opening five minutes. From this point on the Crows machine kicked into gear. All boys had the chance to play in many positions throughout the game.
The pleasing aspect was that wherever the boys were placed they followed team structure and rules. Coopa Steele continued his great start to the season kicking 10 goals. Josh Thomas used the ball well, while Jack McAliece and Nathan Baulch put in their best performances for the season.
Gus Crelley continues to play good football, while Jye Doyle racked up the possessions. Mark Tyson ran strongly from defence and Jay Tang continued to elude the defence.
Goals: C Steele 10, R Grundy 2, J Tang 2, J Rourke, H Booth, M Ryan, J Doyle, J Thomas, S Walsh, J McAliece, N Ryan, N Baulch, A Crelley. Best: C Steele, J Thomas, M Tyson, N Baulch, J McAliece
Leeton-Whitton 15.11.101 to 0.0.0
THE under 13s looked to continue the form they showed in round two.
They did not disappoint. Jayden Broadbent and Lachlan Bailey dominating the clearances. This continued for the first half with Harrison Steele and Cooper Purtill setting up attacking options for the forwards. The forwards supported the midfielders and accuracy in front of goals proved plentiful with Taj Doyle (5), Angus Howe (4) and Myles Jackson (2) being the multiple goal scorers on the day.
THE Crows split the points with Temora on Saturday with a hard-fought draw.
Leeton-Whitton jumped out of the blocks dominating the first quarter with their free flowing football generated by midfielders Luca Deaton, Jude Clayton, Shannon Lehmann, Jonah Allen and Christian Werner. The Crows capitalised on this dominance resulting in Luca Pitt kicking his first goal for the year and Shannon kicking another. The second half was a dour affair. Temora stayed kicked their second goal of the match with 40 seconds left to get the draw.
