Two-time Geelong premiership speedster and Shepparton export Shannon Byrnes starred for Katamatite in its 14-point victory against Katandra in the Picola league’s south-east division.
Played under lights on Thursday night at Katandra’s new clubrooms, Byrnes played in a one-off game alongside mates Jason Kennedy and Tyson Saunders.
Big-man Saunders dominated proceedings on the scoreboard with six goals in a decisive contribution to the result.
The Tigers began the game in scintillating fashion, scoring six goals to four in the first quarter, before the two teams traded blows in a physical encounter.
Matt Dwyer, Nicol Clurey and Patrick Riordan were also named in the Tigers’ best. Sam Fowles was also busy up forward for the visitors with two goals, while Mitchell McGowan also slotted two.
Katamatite will face a tough match this week when it hosts Shepp East who is leading the south-east division ladder.
In the north-west division, Yarroweyah found it tough going against a strong Deniliquin Rovers side, which took the points with a 100-point winning margin.
Yarroweyah defenders Ben Soule, Nathan Congram and Scott Randall were completely on top but goals to a couple of Deni’s onballers saw Yarroweyah trailing 3.1 to 6.1 at quarter-time.
This week, Yarroweyah travels to Mathoura and will be hoping for a strong showing against the Timbercutters, who are also winless this season.
After their bye this week, Strathmerton will host Blighty, who are currently sitting on top of the ladder.
