The first ranked Moss Vale side defeated their sixth placed opponents on July 15 at David Wood Playing Field.

After a week off, Moss Vale coach Corey Denford said his side got off to a slow start. 

“It was a little bit tough at first but once we got the cobwebs out of the way we started to play some good football,” he said. 

Kris Spilarewicz was first to score for Moss Vale in the first half. 

James Marmont followed up with another goal to take the score to 2-0 at the break. 

Denford said Moss Vale brought more energy to the field after the break. 

“Once we got into our groove it started to open up in the second half and we played some really good football,” he said. 

Both Bowral’s keeper Philip Sellars and Moss Vale’s keeper Jacob Clarke keep the scores tights, keeping a number of goals at bay. 

Denford said Moss Vale’s change in play during the second half was a match highlight. 

“We made some changes to our structure and that showed we can be really successful,” he said.

Denford commended Rheece Denford ad Morgan Horne on their performances. 

“Rheece has made a lot of improvements in his transition from reserve grade to premier league and he is starting to gain recognition for that,” he said. 

“Morgan is starting to cement his place in the back line.” 

Denford said the Bowral opposition put up a tough fight during the round 12 match. 

“We definitely noticed an improvement in their play over the last eight rounds,” he said. 

“Their football has gone from strength to strength.” 

Denford said he was happy with Moss Vale’s development but wanted to gain more consistency ahead of finals. 

“We just need to remain consistent as far as the game plan and stay true to the task and the results should come.”
