The Camden Cats reserve grade side has got its season back on track with a comprehensive 110 point win against the Inner West Magpies at Fairfax Reserve last weekend.
Bolstered by the return of key forward Aidan Bell, the Cats dominated their opposition in the first half, piling on 10 goals to 2 in a blistering start to the game.
Camden midfielder Adam Storey ran riot through the middle of the ground with countless inside 50s and a 70 metre goal of his own in the second quarter.
He was well supported by reserve grade debutant Will Brown; who did not look overawed in the higher level competition and veteran James Broadbent who turned back the clock with a masterclass in the Cats’ backline.
The Cats showed a level of skill and intensity not seen in reserve grade this season, as they continued to score at will during the second half piling on another 10 goals to secure a comfortable 110 point win.
Taine Gilheany had his best performance of the season for the Cats with 7 goals; while Aidan Bell in his return to the cattery also scored 7 goals.
This was a great result that puts the Cats back in the hunt for a finals berth.
