THE Kyabram U16 team was keen to have its first win at home and made it two in a row when it defeated Shepparton Swans White by 50 points on Sunday. The team welcomed back Cooper Gentle from a long-term leg injury and it didn’t take long for him to make his mark on the game — and he ended up kicking four goals.
Onballers Jackson Barnett, Wes Hill and Anthony De Pasquale worked really well at the centre bounces and provided the team with plenty of drive through the midfield.
The defence stood up when the pressure was on, with Noah Sewell leading from the front at full back along with Liam Scopelliti and Blake McAuliffe giving lots of run out of the backline. Both wingmen, Sam Plumb and Brayden Hall, continued to use their pace around the ground to keep the ball moving forward while utility Johnty Hawes gave them a leading option up forward as well as changing in the ruck.
It was a great day for the boys, with nine different goal kickers and the entire team contributing to the win.
