Rams shake off determined Tocumwal

DENILIQUIN coach Gary Parsons was happy with his team’s form in the final round of Murray Football League matches on Saturday.

The Rams were just two points ahead of bottom team Tocumwal at half-time, but produced a much better effort in the second half.

They were astray in front of goal in the final stanza kicking 4.7 but still won by 50 points.

Parsons gave credit to Tocumwal’s effort in what was possibly its last performance in the league before switching to the Picola League.

“It took a couple of quarters to shake them,” Parsons said.

Deniliquin kicked six goals in the third quarter but squandered opportunities in the last term.

The Rams’ top player was wingman Brenton Loudon, an exciting player with lightning speed.

Rick Gittens, Ryan Chadderton, Matthew O’Connor and Braydon Ball were others to play their part.

Thirds captain Clay Howe played his second senior game, highly rated for his efforts on a wing and up forward.

The Rams meet third-placed Finley in a semi-final next week.

Five players with niggling injuries rested on Saturday — ruckman Anthony Bull, Ash Morris, centreman Blair Whelan, defender and back-up ruckman Daniel Jordon and on-baller Tom Draffin.

Finley defeated the Rams by 10 goals when they met for the first time this season.

Congupna finished the season on a high note with a 141-point win against Rumbalara.

Finley won by 34 points against Barooga.

Top team Mulwala won by 70 points at Nathalia and Cobram likewise easily defeated Moama by 55 points.

Tongala was 11 points behind against Numurkah at the final change, but kicked six goals for a 14-point win.
