Rockets and Rupertswood players.


Echuca-Moama Rockets took on Rupertswood on Sunday, in great conditions and in front of a strong crowd at Echuca South Recreation Reserve.

Appointed skipper Sarah Douthat led from the front against the division two Football Integration Development Association club.

Dylan McGregor, Katrina Delany, Jake Robinson and Robbie Goulding provided strong defence throughout the four-quarter match.

Brent Thomas starred in the ruck and won plenty of contests, which paved the way for his midfield troupe to run the ball away.

Mikayla Armstrong, Sophie Ryan and Nathan Dri worked well with Nate and Kayden Tonizzo, all thumping the ball down the ground.

Most of the ‘one percenters’ were done by Matty Guiney, Jordan Betts and Brad McGillvray, with tackles and assists the feature of their efforts.

Zane Perris’ long bomb to Callum Charteris and Andrew Guy in the forward line provided one of the many highlights.

With great team work, Charteris and Guy fed the ball to Cameron Farr who then slotted the goal and celebrated in great style, fist pumping the air.
