Leeton-Whitton's junior sides finish well before 2017 finals

THE Leeton-Whitton under 15s have completed the home and away season undefeated after a tight tussle with Narrandera on Saturday at Leeton.

The game was close in the early parts of each quarter with both teams having some good scoring opportunities only to be blocked by some good defense.

Leeton got the break at quarter time after kicking three goals in the final five minutes of the quarter.

Jay Tang was playing well and looks to be in very good form going into the finals.

Josh Thomas was running well, linking up on multiple occasions to set-up the forward line.

Sean Walsh showed some good glimpses and looks to be a potential match winner in the finals.

The second quarter was very similar to the first, Narrandera contained the Crows outfit for the first eight minutes.

The Crows then put on three goals in the last five minutes to take a 33-point lead into the long break.

Jye Doyle was proving to be a good ball distributor and Jack Rourke was dominating the aerial contest.

Nathan Ryan was relishing his role in the midfield.

The second half was a different affair as Leeton kicked three goals to Narrandera’s two, to run out 42-point winners.

Coopa Steele continued to evade tackles and break lines giving the Crows constant momentum, while Reece Grundy continued his high workrate which allowed him to get to many contests.

Leeton will take on Narrandera this Saturday in Ariah Park in the second semi-final, with the winner guaranteed a spot in the big dance a fortnight later.

The under 11s and 13s had the bye last weekend. 

However, both of those teams are also through to the finals of the South West Junior Football League competition. The 13s finished second and the 11s first.
