The Showdown #3
In a 1 all tussle this year both teams had lot to prove how they have improved in this third encounter. Jay Johnson dominated in the backline for the Blues cutting off all attack whilst Jared Court long boot delivered the ball downtown. Across the middle Diesel was running around like a dog on heat getting into all the action and setting up Angry for some terrific goals. The Blues father sons combinations are proving very effective with youngstars Devon Pullybank played well off the wing whilst Jury-Lynn was the turnover king with effective tackles earning him a swag of free kicks. Dad couldn’t be more chuffed screaming encouragement until noise control was called by some old duck in Kaiapoi.
For the Cougars it was awesome to see 18 registered players with no ring-is from other clubs. Chilly and George battled hard through the middle. Dev was handy on the wing with his long range kicking. Champs still found his way to goal despite some loose passes and Mildenhall despite his age can still run the legs off ya (for the first five metres anyway!) Jonty turned some loose ball into attacking footy and Brad turned a beer budget into champagne footy. Blues too good by a lot of points 8 16 64 to 7 7 49
