Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes returned to their best form with a 75-point thrashing of Wagga Tigers on Saturday.

Goannas teenager George Kendall was a standout as they bounced back from their first loss of the year with a big win, 14.11 (95) to 3.2 (20) at Mangoplah Sportsground.

Ryan Price kicked five goals swapping between full forward and the midfield with Tom Keogh, who also bagged three.

MCUE coach Travis Cohalan welcomed a big win over Tigers.

“You’re always happy when you beat such a proud club, a club we have a great respect for, like Wagga Tigers,” Cohalan said.

“They have always been a powerhouse so you’re always going to be happy when you come away with a 10 goals plus win.”

MCUE are still without a number of experienced players and loves that he has been able to blood so many youngsters.

“We’ve been able to play a lot of young kids and give them a chance in different positions than what we thought we may have done at the start of the year,” he said.

“They have all got their chance, due to injury or suspension, and they are standing up week by week.”

Lachie Johnson in his fourth senior game and Matt Collins were others to shine for MCUE in the big win.

Nick Ryan and Jake Mascini were Tigers’ best.
