COACH Nathan Gilliland was looking for a better showing than the previous month from his senior team against Benalla last weekend and despite the lop-sided score-line (courtesy of a final quarter blow-out) this was what he received.

Leading from the front Nathan himself led the goal-scoring for the team with three while captain Andrew Bell underlined his reliability, yet again putting in a very high quality four quarter effort.

Nate Trotter stuck to his guns all day in a huge task and won plenty of praise for his determination and desire.

Pat Horsburgh continued some fine late season form and was ably assisted by the likes of Max Gleeson.

In what was best described by those present as an untidy attempt at a bump, VFL listed Euroa boy Jacob Gleeson was knocked out mid-way through the third quarter.

Fortunately Jacob received a positive report later that night from the medical staff at Wangaratta hospital, despite not recalling anything of the incident.
