Murray stands in the way of Wimmera interleague success

Wimmera Football League will have to wait until next year to improve its standing in community championships football after a narrow loss to Murray league.
Wimmera’s 22-point loss at Moama led to the region’s flagship football competition slipping in rankings to 17th in the 32-league field.
The loss was its first at a championship in three seasons.
Murray, on the other hand, is now ranked 14th, in a field led by Geelong league.
Wimmera led early in its championship clash before Murray, on the end of a six-goal second quarter, claimed a 17-point lead at half time.
The visitors then played catch-up football for the remainder of the game.
Minyip-Murtoa big-occasion aerialist Kieran Delahunty shone for the Big W, as did resolute Horsham utility Rhona Conboy.
Minyip-Murtoa assistant coach Sam Winfield and Burras team-mate Warwick Stone, Stawell coach Tom Eckel and Horsham talent Ryan Kemp were also prominent.
Brodie A’Vard, Ned Nihill and five-goal Ashley Froud led the way for Murray.
A Wimmera under-18 team also narrowly missed out, losing by four points in a curtain-raiser.
Jordan Delahunty, Adam Haslett and Paul Summers were best for the Wimmera side.
