Violet Town lunge at lapless Ardmona

By Meg Saultry

Violet Town racked up its third win of the season in immense fashion, with a 125-point trouncing of Ardmona on Saturday.

With only three matches played across round 16 of the Kyabram District league, Violet Town posted the highest score and winning margin of the round in the one-sided contest.

The result looked to be a foregone conclusion by half-time, with the Towners continuing to systematically pile on the goals to extend their lead past 65 at three-quarter time.

And digging in further, the Towners later booted nine goals in the final quarter to post a three-digit winning margin.

Ryan Jennings starred in attack, with the Towners skipper kicking six majors, Nick Abley (four) and Brendan Anderson (three) also contributing plenty, while Jett Bewick was judged best afield alongside Mark Baker.

Violet Town has the bye this Saturday, before its final match of the season against Avenel a week later.

Final score: Violet Town 21.22 (148) def Ardmona 3.5 (23)

Goals: R. Jennings 6, N. Abley 4, B. Anderson 3, J. Cripps 2, J. Bewick 2, T. Rogers, T. Saker, S. Horsburgh, R. Smyth

Best: J. Bewick, M. Baker, N. Abley, R. Jennings, P. Wakefield, T. Rogers

• Violet Town’s reserves also dominated their match against Ardmona, delivering a 124-point thrashing to the home side.

The Towners kept the Cats to a goal a half, while piling on eight and 11 of their own across the two halves.

Jarrod Fox (five goals) and Alex Nikolovski (four) were influential up forward, while Riley Dowell and Nick Papakalodoukas were again standouts for the Towners.
