FOOTBALL – CDHBU outlasted the Murray Magpies to win 11-7-73 to 7-7-49 and remain in the hunt for a finals appearance.
The Power backline worked hard all day in the game played at Urana Road oval.
The Magpies closed to within two goals midway through the last quarter but the Power steadied with some late goals to win by 24 points in the must win game.

The Thirds had a few inclusions on permit from Corowa Under 16s this week which was great and thanks to Corowa for giving us a hand.
We came up against a surprisingly strong Murray Magpies side who had some solid boys who played a great team game.
We felt we went away from the way we like to play a little bit and let them get away from us early.
Having said that, there were still a lot of good passages of play and quick ball movement.
Our smaller players continued to crack in against their much bigger opponents and didn’t give in.
The backline was the highlight with some excellent games from Sean Fischer, Dougall Robb, Tristan Hall and Tom Collier.
Baily, Angus and Jordan all worked really hard in the midfield as well.

This week we travel to Howlong for the games of football and netball.
With some late recruiting numbers should be good for the senior and reserve football sides.
The late recruits will help cover the long injury list.

We are getting better and working as a team.
Brooke M was creating space and shooting well and Bec stood tall against their defence.
Emily, Erica and Michelle all worked hard and created some good turn overs throughout the mid-court. Brooke D never gave up in defence against some very quick opposition.
Thanks again to Shelby and Chelsea in playing both games and standing out in both.

Really stepped it up this week to another level, with all areas combining well.
Shelby and Chelsea starred in mid court and Sisi and Carol were combining well in goals.
Defence was tight and we pushed the Magpies hard but they were able to get that break on us in the last quarter.
Nice to see another young girl in Ella Harvie making her debut and showing signs she is ready for the next step.
