McKay kicks nine, but the big test awaits ‘Pies

EUROA reserves travelled to Echuca to take on the Murray Bombers on a cold but dry Saturday afternoon.

The winter time blues struck again with several players missing from injury and sickness although there were three big inclusions in Cunningham, McKay and White.

The game started slowly with both teams getting the pace of it before well-known goal kicker Bulldog kicked the first for the game and year for him.

Our midfielders as usual, Graf, Carracher, Cunningham, and White were getting plenty of it as was Giovannini who gets better each week.

Chris McKay came on through the quarter and proceeded to slot two goals to give Euroa a 15-point lead at quarter time.

Euroa’s backline is part of the reason the team is where it sits on the ladder, and again with the evergreen Watson, Burls, Berry, Duff and Moore, it is probably having his best season to date, and it kept Echuca to only two goals for the half.
