Cats 6-4-40 def by Barny 15-20-110

Footballers and supporters alike got a good feel and reminder that football is a winter sport with the trip just down the road to Barnawartha on a wet, cold and windy day. 

The Cats knew it was going to be a tough day at the office but with another debutante in Jayden McCluskey getting his first senior game the guys were up for the challenge. 

The first half was close, and the guys were putting up a determined effort against the side second on the ladder, unfortunately after half time the team couldn’t maintain the intensity and Barny’s class come to the fore and they kicked away to a record themselves a solid win. 

Hopefully the weather turns for the better for the trip down the road next week to Chiltern.

Cats 3-3-21 def Barny 2-5-17

In an exciting game, the Rutherglen Fourths put in a tremendous effort to beat Barnawartha. 

In a great display of determined wet weather footy, the U14 team held Barnawartha goalless from quarter time and clawed back three goals to finish with a pleasing four point win. 

In the best players again was Indi Kotzur with a dominant game in the ruck, Justin Lewis dangerous up forward, Ryan Milthorpe strong in defence and Jack Keys and Lochie Webb getting plenty of the ball around the ground.
