The Josh Bode-led Picola and District Football League north-west played out an enjoyable, but ultimately unsuccessful, interleague match against Hume Football League at Tocumwal on Saturday.
Hume proved far too good as the match wore on and eventually won 21.15
With the game not involved with the AFL Victoria Country Championships, no ranking spots were on the line and both teams played out an entertaining first quarter with six goals apiece.
However, it was all the visitors in the second term as they booted eight goals to two and surged out to a 42-point half-time lead.
The margin tipped 60 points during the third term, but Picola entered the last break with some hope after kicking the final three goals of the quarter, but was then able to register a major in the final stanza as Hume piled on four more to win by 70 points.
Jerilderie’s James Gilligan led the way for Picola to be his team’s best, while his Demons’ teammate Andrew May was awarded the best-on-ground medal for the losing team.
Blighty forward Brody Lumber also played well and kicked two goals. Lumber’s Blighty teammate and midfield speedster Judd Barnes impressed in his interleague debut, as did Deni Rovers defender Brendan Hope.
Chris Allingham was Mathoura’s only representative.
Former Deni Rams footballer James Morris starred for the Hume league with four goals.
Both teams kicked two goals in the opening term, but the visitors pushed away thereafter to kick 17 goals to five and win 19.22
Mathoura’s Bryce Bish impressed for Picola, while Brayden Coburn was named the team’s best player.
Pat O’Connell, Sam Murray (three goals) and Julian Hayes (three goals) were Hume’s best players, while Harry Dowling kicked four goals.
