The Cooma Cats recorded their 11th win for the season on Saturday defeating the Gungahlin Jets, Cooma 13.7 (85) to Gungahlin 10.12 (72). The Cats tested the depth of their squad with a number of players unavailable due to work and injury and the Jets sought about to make amends for their embarrassing loss earlier in the season.
The Cats began the game well enough with a flood of possession but an outnumbered Cats forward line struggled to convert that possession onto the scoreboard and it was the Jets who got the first two goals into the breeze.
A see-saw battle then ensued as the Cats balanced the match ups and began to score with Tony Flemming kicking three goals to have the Cats ahead a quarter and half time with a slim lead.
The Cats, with coach Damien Asanovski playing and rolling back the clock, used all of their experience in the third quarter to control the game off the back line and set-up opportunities for the forwards including captain Taylor Lee who kicked truly to have the Cats in control five goals ahead at three quarter time. Some outstanding final quarter efforts by Chris Gresser (Subway player of the Week) and a great game from Nathan Runge were evident in the final stages of the game as the never say die Jets threw everything they had at the Cats right to the final siren.
The Jets' efforts were to no avail as the Cats secured the victory and celebrated in front of a loyal home crowd.
The Cats next game is their last for season 2014 at home against Harman Hogs before their final game of the season away versus Tuggeranong.
In the juniors lead in game the U14 Snowy Supercats had their strongest game of the season against friendly foes Marist College and a great game was had by the improving young side.
The Supercats also play their final game for the season this weekend so everyone is invited to Snowy Oval on Saturday to see some great AFL action and celebrate the Snowy Supercats great season 2014.
