Shepparton East's Aaron Egan and his teammates had a ton of fun on Saturday when Egan brought up his century of goals for the season in Picola District Football League south-east.MATTHEW GALEA August 5, 2014 3:15am
By the time Aaron Egan kicked his 100th goal for the season on Saturday, he had five markers.
Egan has been a massive hit at Shepparton East since making the switch from Shepparton United to play in the Picola District Football League’s under-17 team.
After 15 games this season, Egan had kicked 87 goals — 13 short of his ton.
Game 16 was against Rennie and Egan admitted while he was thinking about it, he never expected to finish the day with 100 goals for the season.
‘‘Everyone was keeping track, but we thought it might come over the last two weeks and I might be able to get it against Tungamah,’’ Egan said.
‘‘I seemed to hit it early. I kicked four in the first quarter and we thought we might be on.
‘‘The guys were just hitting me up all day.’’
With eight goals to his name at three-quarter-time, it was clear Egan’s ton was a priority for the whole team.
‘‘The coach asked me how many I needed and I told him five and the boys just made it their thing to get me the five I needed,’’ Egan said.
Goal 100 came on the run, when Egan managed to wriggle his way through five opponents and kick the goal from 35
‘‘The sirens, the cars were all going off and the boys all ran up from the backline. It was just going off,’’ he said.
‘‘I wouldn’t have got it without my team. Tom McCluskey and Will Sanders were hitting me up all day; it was just a good day for footy.
‘‘It was special. They were trying hard to keep it off me. I had about five players on me, I don’t think they wanted me to kick it.’’
The Eagles kept Rennie scoreless on the day, winning 22.22 (154) to 0.0 (0) — a result which is indicative of the season Egan’s side is having.
The Eagles are on top by percentage ahead of second-placed Tungamah and Egan now has his sights on capping a wonderful year with a premiership.
Egan is the second PDFL south-east junior footballer to hit a ton of goals after Rennie under-14 gun forward Bailey Frauenfelder, who has kicked 122 goals in 16 under-14 games this season.
