With the Murray Bushrangers having a bye in the TAC Cup, Deniliquin star Jake Marshall returned to lead the Rams’ thirds to victory on Saturday.
In what will prove to be an important match for two sides fighting for a finals berth, the Rams held Finley goalless for three quarters before running out with a 10.4 (64) to 2.10 (22) win.
Marshall booted five goals in the first three quarters, while his uncle Todd Mashall was named best on ground.
Sean Fisher, Brady Trotman and Ben Irwin also had a big say in the outcome, while Jack Conallin and Liam Pitts battled hard all day.
Tall target Bryce Scoullar (two goals) was the Rams’ other multiple goalkicker with three others kicking singles.
Better players for Finley were Sam Orro, Lanz De Peralta and former Deni Rovers player Che Griffin.
It was a similarly important game in the fourths, with the Rams coming out on top by 21 points.
The Lambs are in fifth spot on the ladder and are now one game clear of sixth-placed Finley.
Saturday’s match was a hard slog with the Cats’ failing to kick a goal and the Rams registering just three.
Lachie Trotman, ruckman Sid Pearn and gun smalls Will Shaw and Sam Willoughby were the stars for Deniliquin.
