The Camden Cats men’s division two side have shot the lights (literally) with a hard fought 7 point win against Sydney University on Saturday.

The Cats started the twilight fixture at University Oval with a bang, kicking 6 goals to 4 to take a slender 11 point lead into half time.

At the half time interval the oval’s floodlights went out; causing a long delay to the game that swallowed up the entire third quarter.

When play resumed for the last quarter, neither side could gain the ascendancy.

Goals became extremely hard to score in the greasy conditions, but the boys from Camden found a way to victory over their more fancied opposition.

Turn on the lights: Camden found a way to beat Sydney University.

Through the midfield Beau Snellman and John Murtagh continued their amazing recent form with best on ground performances, while veterans Dan McKay and Brenton Sommerville played supporting roles from the back half.

Up forward, the ever dangerous Jihad Ykmour caused plenty of headaches for the students and he was well supported by Chris Glynn.

Beau Snellman was the only multiple goal kicker for the Cats with 2 goals for the game.

Camden Cats goal kickers: B. Snellman 2, J. Ykmour, J. Murtagh, J. Bines, C. Glynn.

Camden Cats best players: B. Snellman, J. Murtagh, D. McKay, C. Glynn, J. Barbaro, B. Sommerville.
