Barooga seniors sixth on Murray Football Netball League ladder after morale-boosting win at home over Moama.LAURA HURLEY July 9, 2014 3:47am
Barooga’s seniors have ended a four-game losing streak with a win over Moama on Saturday at Barooga Recreation Reserve.
The victory has moved Barooga into the top six on the Murray Football League ladder.
Scores were level at quarter-time, but the Hawks were ahead at every other change and finished with 12.10 (82) to Moama’s 8.10 (58).
Coach Leigh Ramsdale said the win was a good boost for the players’ morale.
‘‘It was a good result, we’ve had a tough month,’’ Ramsdale said.
‘‘It’s a good win for us.’’
With a bye this weekend before facing Cobram on Saturday, July 19, Ramsdale said the break would be a good opportunity for the Hawks to rest and recuperate, as well as gather confidence.
Cobram has yet to win a match this season.
Ramsdale is confident the bye will also allow some key players to return from injury.
‘‘The last few weeks were wearing the boys down a bit,’’ he said.
‘‘The weekend was a good experience after struggling for the past month.’’
Marcus Smith booted three goals for the home side and was voted best on ground for his efforts.
Dylan Brooks and returning ruckman James Philpot were also prominent.
Tyler Jones kicked five of Moama’s eight goals, while Rhys Archard, Time Scadden and Brett Godfrey also gave good performances for the Magpies.
While the win has put Barooga into finals contention, Moama has now dropped to eighth on the ladder.
The home side’s Al Corry helped himself to six goals and Matt Brown booted five in the 21.18 (144) to 5.3 (33) win.
Despite the final scoreline, it was an improved performance for the Tigers, who went goalless against Moama the previous week.
John Lucas, Nick Hoban and Darcy McCormack were Cobram’s best.
