To record 100 individual goals in one season is a difficult task for any AFL forward, but an even more more complicated assignment for a footballer who is barely a teenager.

Moama’s Todd Murphy registered his 101st major on the weekend following an 11-goal haul.

The outstanding performance against Deniliquin in the under 14s divison saw the youngster reach the ‘ton’.

The 13-year-old won the goalkicking award in the Murray Football League under 14s competition — and somewhat considerably too.

Murphy has doubled the goal kicking efforts of almost all his fellow under 14s competitors.

Echuca United’s Jake Martin (64), Barooga’s Riley Gow (47) and Finley’s Mathew Wilson (42) are the MFL’s other leading goalkickers.

Moama’s under 14s side has dominated the 2014 season thus far and is yet to taste defeat.

The Pies will clash with Cobram in a semi-final this weekend at Memorial Park.

More in Wednesday’s Riv.
