A great day for the Coota Blues on Saturday defeating Murrumbateman by 82 pts.
The Blues were never headed, booting 16-19-116 to 5-3-33.
A healthy crowd was on hand at Clarke Oval where the Blues were celebrating 60 years of footy in Cootamundra
Saturday's match was a stand-alone game of AFL Canberra Regional Grade competition, with the other four teams enjoying the June long weekend bye.
The Blues booted five goals to two in the opening quarter and a further two goals in the second quarter saw the Blues lead by 44 points at the long break.
Cheered on by an excellent local crowd, the Blues repeated the dose in the third and fourth quarters to record a resounding win.
The Blues had many winners across the ground, and no better than Blake Basham. The talented 20-year-old, in a break out year, controlled the back line. He continually marked and drove the Blues back into attack.
Again, Blues captain Phil Bird was at his dominant best, as was on-baller Dylan McDermott.
The speed of Jack Caldwell gives the Blues plenty of drive and young Jack gets better in each match.
Having two forwards, Sandy Maskell Knight and Chris Drum, booting nine goals between them, provided plenty of headaches for Murrumbateman.
Maskell Knight booted three of his five goals in the first quarter.
Best: Blake Basham, Phil Bird, Dylan McDermott, Zac Oliver, Aaron Basham and Sam Baldock.
Goals: Sandy Maskell Knight 5, Chris Drum 4, Zac Oliver, Blake Basham, Tom Anthony, Phil Bird, Dylan McDermott, Jack Caldwell and Sam Baldock.
The girls had the general bye, so they resume next weekend, playing Tuggeranong at Kingston Oval, while the men have next Saturday off. The Blues have won their opening seven matches of the season, which is the best start to a season since 2006.
