EUROA’S senior football team looked to end a 30 game winning streak by the Kyabram juggernaut at the weekend yet fell short by a mere seven points by the final siren.
JD Hayes had planned meticulously for this contest yet with three regular senior players unavailable, his ability to rely on the good work of the whole playing list who have been working so hard throughout the summer period and first half of the season was indeed tested.
Nonetheless, the players who came into the side from the Reserves – Nick Baring and Matthew Hess – certainly acquitted themselves very well and made sure the team had just as much competitiveness and ‘bite’ as they would have had previously.
Brock Storer, returning from the Reserves the week previous, also played a valuable game as a key part of the defensive unit.
Ben Harrison was the highlight though for the Euroa backline.
With missing superstar Adam Tarrant away due to wedding commitments, Ben stepped up to the plate and comprehensively defeated highly fancied ex-AFL player and league leading goal-kicker, Kayne Pettifer, holding him to the solitary goal.
