With a later start time at Cobram’s home ground, the Roar were confident going into the game.

With a full list of players, the game started positively with a few shots on goals.

After building some momentum, the goals started to flow.

Joseph Allen opened his goal account with a great header, followed by goals from Mikael Corso, Sonny Rowe and Craig Keech, who kicked his first goal of the season.

Goals: J Allen 3, S Rowe 3, M Corso 1, Mikael Artavilla-Bennett 1, M Alkundi 1, L Quianne 1 and C Keech 1.


Cobram Roar 12 d Albury United 0

From the outset Cobram pushed forward with numbers and peppered United’s goals.

Cobram’s defence of Thomas Corso, Luke Goodin, Harry Paterson and Lachie Kelly was impenetrable. Harry provided great run and carry, pushing the ball forward, and Thomas was cool, marshalling the backline.

Sonny Rowe, Jesse Wakeman and Logan Stone provided some wonderful through balls which resulted in goals and Jake Brincat was in the thick of the action creating chances.

Jackson Coopman and Jake Kalz were lethal up front and Xavier Spiller was unlucky to not convert from the penalty spot.

The goals were shared well with Jackson scoring four, Jake three, Jesse and Logan two each and Luke one.

Apart from the numerous goals, one of the most pleasing parts of the game was Cobram keeping a clean sheet.

Currently on top of the ladder, Cobram will play second-placed Myrtleford on Sunday in what should prove a tough match.

Awards: Xavier Spiller and Jesse Wakeman.

Cobram Roar 8 d Albury United 1

Sam Wood opened the scoring for Cobram in just the fourth minute of the match. This started an avalanche of goals for Sam, who had netted six by half-time.

These were facilitated by a dominant defence and midfield who kept feeding the balls to him.

The Roar, buoyed by their sizeable lead, started off the second half a little sluggishly. This let Albury sneak in a goal.

But that kicked Cobram back into gear, with Toby Shilling and Ella Lissington scoring another two goals.

It was a great team effort by everybody and a well-deserved victory.

Goals: S. Wood, T. Shilling and E. Lissington.

Best: S. Wood, D. Cheong and A. Fotia.
