Berrigan got back on the winners’ list with a massive 135 point win at Mathoura in round three of the Picola & District League on Saturday.

The Saints were in front all day in the warm conditions, never taking their foot off the pedal and playing a consistent brand of footy.

Jye Adamson was the pick of the Berrigan side as he ran hard all day and seemed to always come out of a pack with the ball.

Harley Middleton returned to Saints headquarters and was industrious in the forward line with six majors.

Trent Osborne had a great game in defence with the rugged defender too strong in the air for his counterparts.

Angus Coldwell again showed plenty of toe around the ground and was a headache for the Timbercutters through the centre of the ground.

Cam Hall has hit form and put his strong frame to good use around the contests.

Jack Robinson was again in the thick of the action in the engine room and coach Lee Schmidt was as damaging as ever as he set up the play around the ground with his silky skills.

Final score, Berrigan 25.11 (161) to Mathoura 3.8 (26).

The reserves also returned to the winners’ list with a commanding 91 point win against Mathoura.

After a slow first quarter the boys were given some stern words from the coach and the response was immediate as the Saints took control of the match from then on.

Andrew Hawkins was clunking everything in sight while also keeping the goal umpires on their toes.

Stu Pyle was rock solid in defence and relished his move to the forward line in the dying minutes slotting three goals.

Mitchell Beck was a handy inclusion and was impossible to stop as he baulked and weaved his way all the way to the goals time and again.

Cody Danielson-Jenson had another consistent game and Adam Fox’s slick ball movement was truly poetry in motion.

Due to injuries Chris Cameron was eventually subbed on and sprinted straight onto the ground booting three magnificent quickfire goals keeping all of his adoring fans in awe.

The ambidextrous Nathan Magill made a cameo appearance and did not disappoint as he gave sublime disposal to his eager colleagues.

Young Bailey Thornton stepped up to help with numbers and played like a lion, while Craig Glanvill created magic.

Final score, Berrigan 16.9 (105) to Mathoura 2.2 (14).

The Saints will now host reigning premiers in both seniors and reserves Picola United on Saturday.
