Eagles fell Congupna in one quarter to regain top position on the ladder.June 9, 2014 3:14am
Echuca United clambered to the top of a congested Murray Football League ladder after a tough win against visiting Congupna on Saturday.
The Eagles trailed at each of the first two breaks but a superb third quarter saw them hold the Road scoreless while booting five goals of their own to take control of the game, eventually winning 9.10 (64) to 5.9 (39).
It is the first time the team has lost three quarters but still won the match since 2007.
While it is not ideal to only win one quarter of the match, the team would be happy with its efforts in restricting Congupna to minimal score advancements each time.
Rochester recruit Dean Moon continued his recent stellar form at the club with another best-on-ground performance in the midfield, while Farran Priest and Tom Jackson also impressed.
Josh Rankins has also been a valued addition to the team since his return from injury, Rhys Egan did a good job in his first senior game for the year and Ricki Waters had a good match.
The result means the Eagles sit on top of the ladder, with a good percentage holding it ahead of Barooga, Mulwala, Rumbalara and Finley, who all have six wins for the season.
Defender Brad Sanderson was reported during the match.
