The team played in the LMR event in Bendigo with the first game against Bendigo Senior Secondary College. Jacob Scott did a very good job in goals all day but was “nutmegged” from a short corner early in the game to see us fall behind. Then the Clayton Thompson show rolled into town and as the boys would agree he won the game off his own stick scoring four goals and running rings around the opposition. The Coach was howled down by the players on the bench in the second half when he wanted to give him a rest, but the umpire solved the issue by sending Clayton to the sin bin for two minutes for a “bad” tackle.
In the second game against Mildura it was a very close contest with Mildura scoring with five minutes to go in the second half. They scored again to put the result beyond doubt. A magnificent effort by the boys with Ryan More, Bailey Gray and Jacob Baldock excellent in defence, Nathan Vanzetta and Connor Brown creative in the midfield and Cooper Arkinstall a livewire up forward.
Echuca College 4 defeated Bendigo Senior Secondary College 1.
Echuca College 0 lost to Mildura SC 2. MVP – Clayton Thompson.
