The 2022 V/Line Cup continues to dominate football grounds in Shepparton.

The four-day event features emerging footballers from across country Victoria in a round-robin format.

On Tuesday, April 12, South East and Pioneers division one boys sides battled it out at Shepparton’s Deakin Reserve.

The Pioneers walked away with a 22-point win, while Barwon Cats saluted by 22 points against North East Border in the remaining division one boys contest.

In the girls matches, Barwon ran out 95-point victors over North East and Pioneers claimed a thrilling one-point triumph over South East.
