    REV UP NEEDED: Coach JD Hayes demands more of his inaccurate chargers during the quarter time huddle.

    EUROA had a successful trip to Echuca on Saturday, putting together a four-quarter performance to shoot the Bombers down in a dominant display.

    The Magpies brought up a couple of players from the reserve grade for the must-win game against the similarly placed Echuca side, and it proved a selection masterstroke.

    The visitors got off to something of a slow and wasteful start, peppering the forward line with regularity, and controlling much of the play around the ground, but once again failing to convert that dominance into goals on the board.

    To give credit to Echuca, their bigger bodied players were asserting some aerial dominance, and were able to keep up with Euroa’s comparatively diminutive midfielders and forwards right up until the main break.

    Echuca is always tough to beat at home, and with inaccuracy having cost the Magpies in the past, Euroa supporters and coaching staff must’ve felt they were once again headed for a frustrating day at the footy.
