Kyabram got a bit of revenge on Mooroopna to start the new Shepparton Junior District Football League season.
The Cats defeated the Bombers by 115 points in last season’s under-16 division one grand final, but it was the Bombers who prevailed on Sunday with a 48-point win.
Mooroopna was down a few players, but the Bombers were made to work for everything and a solid three-goal lead at quarter-time provided them a good platform to build on.
The Bombers’ band of on-ballers, which consisted of Sam Vick, Keeley Genio, Brad Whitford and Luke Donnell were hard at it all day, combining well across the park.
Bombers coach Rob Whitford reserved special praise for Mitch Cox and Zane O’Donnell who he said were major ball winners.
‘‘It was a good, hard-hitting game of footy,’’ Whitford said.
‘‘We’re really happy with the effort.’’
Whitford said a bigger pre-season effort than the year prior played its part, despite the fact a number of his players’ efforts over that time were disrupted by injury.
‘‘We had a few injuries leading into the game, but we managed to get all the boys fit,’’ Whitford said.
‘‘We ended up putting out probably our strongest side and they lined up really well from the get-go.
‘‘They came out hard in that first quarter and played the game plan really well.’’
Whitford said Mooroopna kept coming at his side, but was delighted to see his side take the points.
‘‘We’d just kick away every now and then, but we had to be on the ball to keep the pressure up,’’ Whitford said.
‘‘They’re very well coached and they’re very good opposition.
‘‘It was all positive for us after the game.’’
