Team line ups for this weekend's round of finals

Shepparton United has conceded just two points in its two matches this season in the youth girls’ competition.

With the most stringent defence in the Shepparton District Junior Football League the Demons refused to let Northern Angels score in a cruisy 64-point win.

Ellie Mifka was sensational against an understrength Angels, kicking two goals and dominating across the field.

Taleah Briggs also enjoyed sending two majors home, while Kasey Boschetti and Claire Macgill were worthy of accolades.

While Northern Angels were under the pump for the whole match Indiya Parker and Sara Kolundzija still stood strong.

Mooroopna snatched the early lead, but Numurkah’s improved second half helped the Blues to victory, 8.4 (52)-4.5 (29).

The Cats held sway up to the main break thanks to Brontie McCormick, Chelsea Briggs-Baksh and Lakeea Charles, but Numurkah’s Tammy Stone was keeping busy.

Stone finished with three goals in a best-on-ground performance where she received support from Katie Miller, Jordyn Commadeur and Chloe Taylor.

Shepparton Notre allowed Echuca just two goals in their contest as the Bears had the game tucked away by half-time.

Already ahead by 43 points before extending the final margin to 68 points, Shelby Sleeth (four goals), Teagan Brett (three goals) and Breanna Seal (two goals) were major contributors and Arnika McGregor again reigned supreme.

A Keeley Skepper, Tayissa Gray and Madison Gray-led performance gave Benalla a big win against Tatura.

The Bulldogs were well served by Lucy Somers, Chloe Wereszczuk and Laura O’Connor.

Olivia Cicolini, Samantha Rourke and Eloise Ashley-Cooper were sensational in Finley’s big win against Cobram.
