LEETON-WHITTON'S search for an elusive first victory of the 2019 season will need to wait at least another fortnight.
The Crows traveled to Mangoplah Sportsground on Saturday in the hopes of picking up their first victory against the Goannas, who were also winless.
However, it wasn't to be as Leetob-Whitton fell 12.7 (79) to 5.3 (33).
Both teams had started well, but it was MCUE who went into the half-time break with a 27-point victory.
Ryan Grey and Thomas Meline were best for the Crows, who remain winless after four rounds and appear destined for a long season.
Leeton-Whitton, along with the rest of the competition, will now have the coming weekend off for the representative round.
Senior Crows player Jade Hodge is the coach of Riverina side, who will be taking on ACT Canberra. Several Leeton-Whitton players were named in the squad with the final team to be chosen this week.
