IN what was a very good game of pressure finals football, the Euroa reserves were able to come away with a hard fought 16-point victory.

The game was played in good spirit with much pressure applied at the contest by both teams.

This was to be a close encounter for all the game with the biggest margin being ten points during the game when Shepparton broke away during the third quarter.

To the credit of the Euroa reserves team they kept working hard to stay in the contest eventually coming away with a sixteen point victory resulting from a very good last quarter when they converted with a four goal four score to Shepparton’s one goal two.

The team was best served by Jack Smith playing in a number of positions down back and up forward, and Nick Johnson who was a strong contributor across the half back line.

Craig Bamford worked hard in his on-ball role and in the forward line Curtis Hoare continued his good first year of senior football giving the team much run during the game.
