MINUS the on-field leadership of coach JD Hayes, the Euroa senior team were able to shake off a tenacious and determined Tatura outfit at Memorial Oval in Euroa last weekend to shore up a top four spot.

Next Saturday will be a vital clash against Seymour in the last home and away weekend to determine who will take third spot heading into the 2017 finals series.

Hard at the football mid-field star David Mole led from the front with his attack on the contest resulting in many forward opportunities for the likes of Jett Trotter and Trent Storer.

Trent’s brother Brock was outstanding in his link-up play and run from out of the backline as he too was able to give team-mates further up the ground repeated opportunity to win the ball.

The Bulldogs persisted throughout the first three quarters however as they maintained pressure on the ball right throughout the ground, causing the home team to stumble and stutter on a number of plays, turning the ball over and costing themselves opposition goals.

Will McFarlane again demonstrated his flexibility in starting in the middle then pushing forward to give the Tatura defenders plenty to think about.
