WODONGA MCTA star Jade Culph says the team’s domination of A-Grade at Victoria Country Week will hopefully have it well-placed when finals start this afternoon.
MCTA is yet to taste defeat at Wodonga and Culph said the team’s success had allowed it to conserve energy ahead of finals.
Key player Mark Shanahan rested yesterday and Cameron Meagher will likely sit out this morning’s final round match ahead of this afternoon’s semi-finals.
“It’s certainly given us options,” Culph said.
“We’ve just about locked in top spot which is great.
“We’ll probably rest Cameron in the morning match which hopefully means he is fresh for the afternoon.”
Wodonga MCTA did not lose a match again yesterday in what shaped as the most important day of competition so far.
It smashed its main rival — the also previously unbeaten Mud Island — 4-0 in the morning session to lock away top spot.
Time expired in their afternoon match against Maryborough but a points advantage saw MCTA claim victory.
“Today was a big day for us,” Culph said yesterday.
