Tumut’s lacklustre season copped another late blow after dropping their second-last game of the season to wooden spoon contenders South Wagga.
The Eagles held a 2-1 advantage at their Bull Paddock fortress before fading away to concede two more goals to the visiting Warriors.
“We were pretty depleted with our captain-coach away and a few players out with suspension but South Wagga played really well through the midfield in the second half,” Eagles player Mick Parker said.
“Reece Mastellotto and a few others weren’t available and that was hard being down on man power.
“Still, can’t take anything away from South Wagga. They were up for it and they did a good job out there.”
Meanwhile, Tolland returned to the winners’ circle in the best way possible after posting a 4-2 win over Junee.
The Wolves trailed 2-1 at the break before slotting three goals in the second half to reassert themselves as genuine title contenders and keep their top-two dream alive.
Cam McCrory scored a double in the win while Scott Stuart and Colin Cummins also found the net.
The result plus South Wagga’s win condemns Junee to the wooden spoon.
