Burrows digs in to teach Katunga lesson

June 12, 2017

Waaia midfielder Ash Quinn booted two goals to help his side end Katunga's short-wining streak on Saturday.

Rennie is back, Waaia has ended Katunga’s short streak and nothing has changed at Katandra.

Round nine of the Picola District Football League south-east competition threw up a host of intriguing results, with the Bombers stealing the show.

Katunga, which had won three games on the trot, was given a lesson by the resurgent Bombers, with the final score finishing 15.19 (109) to 11.8 (74).

Charlie Burrows kicked six goals in the Bombers’ 35-point win, although it could have been more, as Mick Cleeland’s side missed opportunities in front of goal.

In addition to Burrows’ haul, Ash Quinn and Matt Brown also chipped in with two goals apiece.

For the hosts, Cal Wilson, the Swans’ leading goal-kicker, was kept to just one goal, while Jacob Hodgkin and Dylan Sidebottom kicked seven between them.

Ricky Webb and Shannon Emmett were the Swans’ best.

As a result, the Bombers have jumped the Swans into third position, with the latter dropping to fifth following Rennie’s victory.

●Rennie, which had lost three games in a row, returned to winning ways with a 35-point victory against Dookie, 15.15 (105) to 10.10 (70).

The Grasshoppers, who are still without playing coach Craig Ednie and midfielder Cooper Bennett, were led by Kris Willett and Chase Strawhorn, with the duo kicking three goals each.

The hosts were firing from the outset kicking five goals in the opening quarter, before Matt Pendergast and Mitch Collins Bye gathered a stranglehold on the game from midfield.

Lenny O’Sullivan and Jacob Crow chipped in with two goals each for United.

With the margin sitting at 43 points at three-quarter-time, the hosts fought off United’s slight comeback as they rounded out comfortable winners.

●Katandra remains winless after falling 31 points of Katamatite.

The Tigers proved too strong for the Kats, extending their one-point lead at half-time to run away with the game.

In a relatively low-scoring affair, Tyson Saunders’ five goals were decisive.

Patrick Frappell was Katandra’s best, while Patrick Riordan led the way for the Tigers alongside Saunders.

The victory puts the Tigers two games clear of the winless Kats in seventh position.
