Great game, nice to be back playing again after a break.

Way too many turn-overs and lots to concentrate on at practice this week.

U12 — White

Moama White took on Tongala in a Saturday twilight game, which followed the senior clash at Tongala.

Both sides were pretty excited and a very even, tough first half saw the scores going backwards and forwards, until great team play between Archie Teasdale and Lachlan Hogan allowed Teasdale to goal on the half time siren to give Moama a bit of momentum.

In the second half the Moama team play took over.

Regular goals and some wonderful passages of play saw Moama take control of the game.

Teasdale was outstanding up forward, and first year players Mitch McLean, Ryder Douglas and Jake Barden were making the most of their opportunities.

Hogan found captain Josh Wright in the goal square, who kicked truly and provided a great target for the team.

Noah Walker was a solid contributor as usual, and Sam Hoopell seemed to have his own ball with him.

It was great to see a really strong team effort from all players, as Moama ran out strong winners.

Well done to the Tongala boys, who gave 100 per cent throughout the whole match and never gave up.

Awards: Archie Teasdale, Josh Wright, Mitchell McLean, Noah Walker, Ryder Douglas.

U14s — vs LBU

Moama was fired up Friday night and ready to claim bragging rights against friendly rivals LBU.

The first bounce saw Brodie Marriott two goals straight into the action with support from Maddick Flemming and Oscar Priddle.

Our on ballers James Bentley, Matthew Cartwright and Baxter Anderson one goal were getting plenty of the ball and driving it forward.

LBU kept pushing forward but our backline held firm with Ryder Clark, Jake Cardilini, and Will Norris having standout games with great support from Zac Casey and Jordan Meager.

Lachlan Carter was again a focus at centre half forward with two goals in the second half and with the big fella Hunter Dixon at full forward they were proving to be a headache for LBU.

Our forward flankers also contributed to this and Maisyn Douglas with two goals was again sensational with plenty of support from Ryan Simmons with one, and Archie Connors.

Moama had plenty of opportunities to score a bagful of goals but LBU backline kept up the pressure with many minor scores recorded.

In the end Moama were triumphant easily taking the win.

Best: Brodie Marriott, Maisyn Douglas, Ryan Simmons, Will Norris, Ryder Clark, Lachlan Carter, James Bentley, Matthew Cartwright, Jake Cardilini, Archie Connors.

U14s — vs Tongala

Playing Tongala in difficult conditions, it was a slow start from the boys, a scrappy first quarter.

Dylan Jardine and Darcy dominated in the middle at the start of the second quarter, with the boys gathering momentum, we started to hit the scoreboard regularly.

Keeping Tongala scoreless in the third, with Taj off halfback setting up attack for our forwards.

We finished off a bit scrappy in the last quarter, the boys still managed to pull off a good win.

Well done to Darcy for a best on ground performance, winning every hitout and contest he was in.

Dylan controlling the mid field will set us up well coming into the second half of the season.

Awards: Darcy, Taj, Jacob, Kalani, Johnny, Grant, Dylan, and Ben.
