Rennie football

May 24, 2017

Craig Ednie was good for the Hoppers before suffering an injury late in the match.


It was a close game all day between Rennie and Tungamah except for 5 minutes in the third term when the Bears kicked 4 goals to grab a match winning break.
Early it was a mixture of young and old as Dykes turned the clock back showed poise, Tom Ryan was classy in the forward line and Wallace continued to be in Brownlow form in the ruck.
As the game progressed, Westwood at half back and Smith showed their nous and experience. O’Rae hit form and Pell showed great intent.
Tungamah won by 22 with Ryan kicking 3.

Great win by the Hoppers getting up by 18 points against Tungamah.
The win was set up by a dominant defence led by Alex Park, Trav Wallace on his wing and Kennedy in the pivot.
Rennie broke the game open in the back half of term 3 with Beavis and McCabe kicking 2 each to take the lead out to 6 goals at the last break.
Tungamah pressed late but Brock Conway, Hugh Fisher and Sam Thomas all contributed strongly.

Still undefeated, the smallest Hoppers played their best footy of the season to dominate Tungamah in term 1 kicking 4 unanswered goals.
It was an all-round effort lead by the midfield of Hoskings and Josh McInness, supported by Matt Nieuwenhout playing to his coach’s instructions, Sammy Bigger and Shaw who were creative and Ethan Stephens who gave a contest at half forward all game.
A margin of 27 in what was a tight game of footy after quarter time.
