The Shepparton Swans under-15s recorded a nail-biting win to stay atop the Keatings Goulburn Murray under-15s ladder, overcoming Shepparton United 10.12 (72) to 6.6 (42) in a tight Goulburn Murray Junior League encounter.

The Swans found contributors right across the ground, with Max Bicknell and Sam Garraway kicking two apiece.

Joshua Winkler, Lewis Christian Rachele, Jye McDonald and Samuel Castles also earned spots among the best.

Blake Sofra, Zane Chalcraft, Nathan Scott, Jack Scott, Thomas Higgins and Cody Skinner all fought hard for the Dees.
