Berrigan lost to the Timbercutters for the first time since 2011 on Saturday.July 30, 2014 3:40am
On Saturday, Berrigan supporters were left wondering when the last time was that Mathoura had beaten them.
Most guessed it was in during the Saints’ premiership winning season of 2011 - and they were right - but the Timbercutters brought their A game at the weekend, snatching a one-point win.
It’s now back to the drawing board for the Saints, and right near the business end of the season, with the side looking for two more wins before the finals series.
Final score: Mathoura 15.12 (102) def. Berrigan 15.11 (101).
The Saints lead at each break and showed some top passages of footy, so good at times it warranted discussion among spectators.
Harley Middelton and Chris Patten through the middle and Grant Martin in the back half continued to impress, fighting hard for the footy all day.
Daniel Parmley was also brilliant, right across the ground. He was relentless in attack and scored three majors for the day.
Berrigan’s reserves continue to brave the world and on Saturday went down by 100 points.
It has been a tough year for coach Craig Glanville and the seconds, but there’s still hope of stealing another win or two before the end of the season.
The thirds stuck it with the likes of fourths players Brad Loats, Reilly Rennick and Hamish Congdon filling in for the day.
Berrigan’s fourths had a convincing 47-point win, which boosted the team’s confidence leading into the finals.
It was a team effort with all players putting in 100 per cent to get back on the winners’ list.
There were plenty of goal kickers with Ben Fox scoring two goals, and Tom Whelan, Mason Peters, Riley Rennick, Riley Nolan and Jake Blanch all scoring one.
Miles Curtin played his best game of the season and Fraser Haintz, Tom Whelan and Brad Loats played there regular game.
