THE Cooma Cats AFL team recorded another victory on the weekend keeping them at the top end of the NSW/ACT AFL division 3 ladder, heading towards a second finals series in a row. In their game against the Molonglo Juggernauts the Cats dominated in most facets of the game at Snowy Oval running away with the game Cooma 22.13 (145) to Molonglo 6.7(43).
The Cats began the game well, but inaccuracy in front of goals early cost them and with the fit Molonglo outfit taking it up to the Cats with four early goals it was the Cats on the back foot. Then the Cats' running game kicked in with Dean Parrot, Pricey, Matt Briant and Zac Bowden all hitting top gear and starting to find the scoreboard via their forwards Daniel Wicks, and Kyle Hubert. Off the backline Kyle King was simply dominating his opponents with his pace and skill and the Juggernauts had no answer as the Cats built up a 10 goal lead heading to half time.
After the break the Cats really put the foot down and their forwards found the scoreboard with ease and the Cats looked like a side in top form. The Cats tackling was ferocious and the home crowd were enjoying the Cats success as they saw off the Juggernauts eventually winning by 16 goals. The Subway Cooma player of the week was Daniel Wicks who marked strongly and kicked well delivering up forward.
The Cats now have a tough month on the road before returning to Snowy Oval for their 30th Anniversary premiership re-union game on Saturday July 26 where the Cats Masters team will also make an appearance before the finals action begins in August.
