Roverettes win a thriller

It was a real thriller between Boorowa and Binalong in last Saturday's league tag with the home side sneaking its second win of the season in a hard fought encounter by 12-10. 

Both sides defended well and it was having just a little more strike power for the locals that proved the difference. 

Both sides struggled to gain any advantage early on but it was the Roverettes that crossed first through Mackella Pye from close range for an unconverted try and a 4-0 lead. 

That's the way the score remained until halftime with neither side able to breach the others strong defence.

Early in the second half, Mackella Pye crossed for her second try through a darting run making the score 8-0 to the Roverettes.  

Binalong were never going to make it easy for the locals and struck back after 11 minutes of the second half through their fullback Tara West. 

The try was converted and at 8-6, it was game on. 

Boorowa was next to score with ten minutes left through Rachel Corkery however the try was unconverted and the Jersey girls were still in striking distance at 12-6. 

Binalong crossed next for an unconverted try with five minutes on the clock to trail by two points. 

Boorowa's defence held firm in the dying stages to come away with the win. 

It was a fantastic team effort as the side goes from strength to strength every week and is certainly a force to be reckoned with. 

This week they face an in form Bungendore outfit on their home turf but with growing confidence the girls will be up for the challenge.
