Mulwala opened up in the first term doing plenty of the attacking with Will Farrer and Dean Staunton proving dangerous.April 29, 2014 4:39pm
Gareth Oughton opened the scoring with a goal from a set shot and Mulwala were away.
Mulwala was kicking to the river end which was favoured by the breeze but missed chances which cost them establishing a handy early break. Across half-back Hammond and Fittock were combining well to shut Cobram’s forwards down.
The forward line was very congested which was to Cobram’s advantage and it took young Jacko Gash to find some space to slot Mulwala’s second major. Sean Robbo was back in action and his ability to combine with Patty Fittock was looking dangerous.
The blustery conditions were playing havoc with the delivery to the forwards with targets missed and shots resulting in points. Will Farrer was rewarded for playing in front and hit Chase Strawhorn on the lead to produce Mulwala’s third major.
As the term wore on Mulwala was able to set up some more effective forward entries with goals to Russell and then Ling to build a handy margin. Patty Fittock continued his good form across half-back which helped keep Cobram scoreless for the term.
Nathan McNair was working well against a much taller opponent at full-back, spoiling well and winning the ball at ground level. Score: 5.5.35 to 0.0.00
The set up for the second term had Will one out in the full forward line and he didn’t let his team down kicking the first of the term. Dean Staunton and Ty Primmer were working well at ground level which caused Cobram a lot of problems.
Cobram’s manning up was proving costly as the Mulwala boys were able to find targets in space when going forward. Jackson Gash was proving dangerous in front of goal as Mul’s lead built in the second term.
Cobram’s forward line was a ghost town as all the play was once again in Mulwala’s forward line.
Will and Chase were starting to share the forward fifty well with Chase kicking Mulwala’s eighth. Will Farrer’s overhead marking was spectacular dragging down multiple screamers in contested situations.
The Mulwala defensive group continued to be miserly with Cobram finding it impossible to get through and score. Fittock, Robinson and Howard were letting nothing get through to the Cobram danger zone. Score: 8.12.60 to 0.0.00
Mulwala opened the third term full of running and the addition of three quick goals. The centres were winning the ball at ground level and the fast entry into the fifty set Chase up for another goal. It was raining goals as Dean Staunton joined the party for Mulwala’s thirteenth.
The rebound from the backline by Fittock, Hammond and Holcomb was continually setting up scoring chances. Jackson Gash’s contested marking was a feature of his game, add goal kicking to his package and he was playing very nicely.
The speed of Jacko Weir and Dean Staunton around the top of the fifty really opened the Cobram defence up during the third term.
Will Farrer’s check-side goal from 30m out was a nice party trick as Mul marched away with the game.
Matt O’Shea continued his mighty job in the ruck providing plenty of chances for the smalls at ground level. Score: 17.13.115 to 0.0.00
The Mulwala defensive unit continue to combine well to negate Cobram’s chances to achieve their first score for the game. The Mulwala players continued to dominate around the contests with extra numbers and strong fielding.
Chase Strawhorn and Will Farrer were teaming well together which helped Mulwala’s score line to continue to build. The young Cobram players continued to work hard but they found space hard to come to targets up forward and therefore impossible to hit.
Mulwala had no passengers in their twenty-two with all players hitting the contests hard and showing their commitment to the jumper and the team. This was epitomized by Josh Hammond’s chase down twenty minutes into the last term to turn a Cobram scoring chance into a Will Farrer goal.
