COLAC District Football League’s junior ranks are in strong hands if interleague results are anything to go by.
The league’s under-14 squad scored its first win in four years, downing Central Highlands Football League 8.6 (54) to 4.6 (30) at Rokewood.
A three-goal third term from Colac District put the result out of Central Highlands’ reach.
“Captain Roy Armistead on the ball was ferocious all day and was awarded best-on-ground honours,” Colac selector Peter Mulheron said.
“He was closely followed by Jonty Graham at full forward who kicked five of Colac’s eight goals in what was an outstanding team effort by Colac,” he said.
Colac District’s Stewart McCann, two goals, and Armistead, one, also affected the scoreboard while Zac Zdybel, Lachlan Theodore, Cooper Stephens and Lachlan Bone were among the best players.
Meanwhile, Colac District’s under-16 team suffered a 26-point defeat to Central Highlands.
Birregurra senior player Lewis Melican was Colac District’s best in the 3.8 (26) to 7.4 (52) loss.
“Campbell Floyd found space and gathered plenty of possessions while Luke Nowell, Chester Gardner and Tyler Murnane were in and under winning the contested ball,” Mulheron said.
“Jack Barrow also played his part on the wing,” he said.
Murnane, Zac Day and Tom McGuane kicked goals.
