Cobram Victory travelled to Shepparton to take on the undefeated Shepparton South in what was set to be a tough match for an under-strength Victory outfit.

Victory continued to push and had a handful of corners and it was Miles again who struck a perfect half volley off a corner only for his goal-bound effort to force the South keeper into a great save and keep a one-goal lead into the break.

South was now on the back foot as Victory continued to push and pressure the South defence and could have easily taken the lead when a long range effort by Marc Startari came back off the cross bar and a scramble in the box just missed that final touch.

Final score: 1-4.
