Mulwala opened the encounter against Congupna in attacking form getting in first use of the ball out of the centre and driving it forward to the fast leading Troy Taylor.April 23, 2014 2:26pm
Ty Primmer and Dean Strauton were winning the contests at ground level and their bullet like passes were hitting the target regularly.
The number of attacking 50 entries didn’t result in a run of goals mainly due to some excellent defensive work from the Congupna back men who were working overtime and teaming well.
After a dominant period by the Mulwala team Congupna was able to respond with a couple of goals in a row to close the gap and make a contest of the first term.
Ty Primmer continued his good form winning the ball through the midfield and pushing back hard to support the back line players when they were under pressure.
The backlines of both teams were performing well which made scoring difficult.
When Mulwala was in the position to extend their lead they failed to take their chances and consequently went to the first break behind on the scoreboard.
The second term saw the work rate of the back six really lift with Patty Fittock, Nathan McNair and Matt Howard turning defence into attack on a regular basis and the forwards took full advantage. The combination of Farrar, Taylor, Strawhorn and Russell was creating problems for the opposition and the addition of seven goals to Congupna’s one for the term opened the contest right up.
Jackson Weir was running riot through the midfield collecting possessions and cutting through the lines with his speed.
Weir continued to get strong support from Jackson Gash, Cam Curling and Ty Primmer who won the ball at the contests on a regular basis.
The speed of Farrar and Taylor up forward really started to open up the options Mulwala forwards but the team seemed to shut down just prior to the last break and Congupna took full advantage slamming on four quick goals to get themselves back into the contest.
A bit of inexperience with player changes left the door open for Congupna and the team will need to learn from the experience to ensure they play the term right out until the siren.
In response to the poor finish to the third term the Mulwala players opened the last term swarming around the contest and attacking hard.
The early opportunities were only points but Mulwala was determined to keep the pressure on and it took some magic from the boot of Troy Taylor to slot the much needed goal and break the run of points.
Ty Primmer and Jackson Weir were showing their opponents a clean pair of heals which helped open up a winning lead.
