MINYIP-MURTOA came away with its third win of the season when it faced Nhill on Saturday. 

The Burras won the contest 15.13 (103) to 10.12 (72). 

Burras coach Damian Cameron said his team lifted its effort from the previous game. 

“We didn’t get on top until the last quarter really, I was happy with the boys, the effort was much better than last week,” he said. 

“Although we weren’t on top until after the third quarter the effort was there and thought things were going to open up for us.” 

Cameron said Nhill challenged them for the whole game. 

“To their credit they threw it at us. They won a lot of the ball along the ground which was a credit to them. Once we got up and going and it was a matter of time until we got up on top,” he said. 

“We got back to winning the contested footy which is something we pride ourselves on” 

Cameron said the work rate and work ethic is what impressed him about his players in the round four clash. 

The Burras had a pair of forwards who dominated in their forward 50 with Kieran Delahunty kicking seven goals and Jae McGrath kicking six goals. 

“Jordy Delahunty was absolutely fantastic today. He’s played consistent footy all year without stepping it up and today he really stepped it up,” Cameron said. 

Jordy, John and Kieran Delahunty were all named within the best players for the Burras, Cameron was named best on ground.
