The Cooma Cats continued its winning ways on Saturday defeating the Harman Hogs to retain the Schulberger Cup.
Robbie Schulberger, vice-captain of the Cats and whose father played for both Cooma and Harman, was full of praise for the Cats determined effort.
"We fought hard today against a quality outfit and to come away with the win is a big step forward in building momentum this year," he said.
After a slow start Cooma finished strongly holding Harman to only one goal in the second half to record a comfortable 62 point win. Cooma 13.18.(96) to Harman 5.4.(34). The Subway Cooma player of the week went to Kyle King for his standout game with many dashing runs out of defence. The Cats would like to thank their major sponsor the Australian Hotel, Cooma .
The Snowy Supercats Under 14's AFL side had a tough game against Tuggeranong on Saturday losing by 10 goals but walking away with their heads held high. For first time coach Tyson Stead it was the effort of Chloe Ware, Dylan Noble and Jess Sergo that led the way and it is terrific to see the progress this young team are making. The Supercats would like to thank their Sponsor Coles Cooma.
The Cats return to Snowy Oval along with the Supercats next week for their game against Tuggeranong Hawks. The Supercats U14 game begins at 10am with the Seniors at Midday.
On Sunday it was the turn of the Cooma /Woden BlueCats Masters (35yo+) team that took to Duntroon ovals for a round robin tournament against sides from Sydney, Wagga, Riverina and the ACT.
The BlueCats dominated both their encounters with an elegant display showing high quality disposal and unexpected speed surprising their elder opponents.
At the end of the carnival it was the team with the unblemished win/loss record and the highest for/against and the Blue Cats we're awarded a historic victory.
The Masters team now look forward to a return clash against a combined ACT side in July at the clubs 30th Anniversary reunion celebrations of the clubs premiership in 1984.
