Under 9s League Tag
This round gave our team two games and allowed Tamsyn Ritchie to score a hat trick of tries in each, tries were also scored by Monica Taylor, Emma Craig and Mickaya Crisp-Zagar. Grace Shea was also great in defense as was Breanna Brown and Shadae Crisp-Zagar. Lowanna Potts and Juliet O'Brien showed great improvement and it was brilliant to see all our players playing together for the first time this year.
The Boorowa/Harden Under 13s had their first Boorowa home game last Saturday against Cootamundra. The game started very slow for the home team conceding 24 unanswered points before they remembered how to tackle.
A couple of huge tackles from Cooper Cross saw the Bulldogs finally coughing up the ball in good attacking territory and four tackles later Cooper crashed over for a try next to the posts, 24-6 at half time.
The second half started like the first with Coota scoring two soft tries before the local boys switched on again through some great defence from Beau Abnett and new recruit Jack Kennett out wide. Cooper took full advantage and crossed for two more tries.
The Bulldogs tried everything to finish our boys off but more great defence saw jack Kennett pounce on a loose ball and bust through a couple of tackles before running 70m to score an excellent try.
Our young guns Dan Canellis and Harvey Gay who stepped up from the Under 11s tackled the big boys brilliantly and Nathan Welch, Billy Ward and Jack Innes were strong up front once they switched on (maybe if they turn up early next week we might start the game better!)
Fergus Munns, Joe Prosper ran the ball strong whilst Patrick Davis, Hamish Minehan and Jesse Glover were great in attack once we got our fair share of the ball. Josh Flick has been super consistent all year and got through a power of defence he also got thrown around by the big Coota forwards but got up and smiled at them when playing the ball! Players player went to Beau Abnett who had a great game in attack but was rock solid in defence. Final score 32-22. Great finish we just need to learn how to start!
