Moama’s forward guns had more ammunition than Rumbalara’s on Saturday in a high-scoring affair at Moama Recreation Reserve.

The Magpies took a strong 20.7 (127) to 13.6 (84) victory, taking control of the match after a tight first term.

Tyler Jones was on fire from start to finish, snaring eight majors, while Cooper Barber (four goals), Lachie Collins (three) and Fraser Verhey (two) all managed to hit the scoreboard multiple times.

For Rumba, Djaran Whyman and Beau Jackson continue to look dangerous as a duo, with both snagging three goals in the loss.

●Numurkah stormed to the top of the Murray Football League ladder after a huge win against Finley.

The Blues piled on 31.16 (202) to 2.4 (16) to give their percentage a welcome boost, helping them move above Nathalia on the table.

Josh Evans bagged another nine majors in the win, with Brad Vassal (four goals), Lucas White (four) and Nick Fothergill (three) among the 12 individual Numurkah players to find the middle of the goals.

Cats captain Lachie Small was his side’s best player in the defeat, which was significantly less (60 points) than the first time these two teams met this year.

●Deniliquin came within eight points of securing back-to-back upsets on Saturday after pushing Nathalia right to the line at Hardinge St Oval.

The Rams booted two goals straight to just one behind in the final term, but could not get the job done.

Ben Nisbet kicked three majors for the home side, with Anthony Bull and John Anstee once again the best Rams on the ground.

For Nathalia, Brodie Ross was the only multiple goal-kicker with two, while Malcolm Barnes was influential in the 9.12 (66) to 9.4 (58) triumph.

●A huge final term from Echuca United helped it take a 19.14 (128) to 7.11 (53) victory against Tongala in the revitalised Campaspe Cup.

The Eagles kicked 9.7 to 1.2 in the last stanza of the match to soar to the strong win easily.

Farran Priest dominated with five goals, while Bryce Denham (three goals) was Tongala’s best.
