Stop, stop: Roos keep going

Updated: Oct 20, 2021

ABANDONDED games and byes have yet to dent the momentum coming out of Mitiamo as they chase back-to-back Loddon Valley football flags.

The Superoos easily accounted for Pyramid Hill last Saturday, overcoming some wobbly opening minutes as both sides dusted off the cobwebs from Lockdown 5.0 when games and training were not possible.

Tyrone Downie led the way with five goals in the 51-point victory at Mitchell Park.

He was well supported by Andrew Cussen and both were named among the best.

The Dogs had creative moments but only rarely broke through a diligent Mitiamo defence.

Meanwhile, the woes continue for Bridgewater who easily accounted for Maiden Gully,

More injuries saw the Mean Machine without a bench in the final term.

League leading goalkicker Joshua Martyn, who kicked three on Saturday, has an injured shoulder with Zeb Broadbent (hamstring) and Tom Dowd (hamstring) also on the injured list. Andrew Collins was injured at training last Thursday and did not play.

While only lowering the colours once so far this season, the Mean Machine have been hit by injuries most of the year.

Marong highlighted the gap between top and mid-level sides with an 83-point win over Bears Lagoon Serpentine.
