Shepparton District Junior Football League teams have come home from Moama with unblemished records.OLIVER CAFFREY May 20, 2014 3:10am
Two Shepparton District Junior Football League teams secured division wins at the Moama junior interleague carnival on Sunday.
The under-13 and under-14 sides went undefeated in their three games.
League under-13 coach Gerard Butts said the team jelled together perfectly.
‘‘It was the first time they’ve played together and as a team, they played really well and shared it around with a good spread of goal-kickers,’’ Butts said.
‘‘The attitude throughout the day was outstanding, for the kids it’s a long day, but they were able to stay focused and play really well.
‘‘It all happens pretty quickly with the two 15-minute halves, but we threw them around in different positions and they took it all on board.’’
The under-13s thumped Central Murray in the first game by 55 points, were then pushed to three points by Goulburn Campaspe, but were far too strong for Bendigo in the final match, prevailing by 42 points.
Midfielder Jye Chalcraft was named the Player of the Carnival, kicking seven goals in three games, while Jimmy Boyer booted three.
Ruckman Daniel Bathman was named in the best players in two games and Harry Brodie was also good.
League under-14 coach Chris Barzen said he could not fault the effort of his players.
The under-14 side went back-to-back after winning last year’s Moama carnival.
‘‘The majority of the team has been together before, there were a few new guys that came in, but the even spread of the team and the 21 players on the day was great, we had no passengers,’’ Barzen said.
‘‘(Assistant coach) Jamie Madgwick and I find them very coachable and a hard working group, they do anything they’re asked to do.’’
The under-14s were tested against Murray in the opening game before comfortable victories against Bendigo and Goulburn Campaspe.
Kai Madgwick was named among the best in all three games and was rewarded with the player of the carnival.
Kyle Clarke was important, Broady Blackley-Dow played well and Lachie McMahon had some good moments.
