Close games for Boorowa/Harden BushHawks

Under 6s

The mighty Boorowa Under 6s traveled to Coota last Saturday in excellent conditions for footy.

It was a tight match with some great defence from the Boorowa side led mainly by Dylan Roberts, Mason Owen and Charlie McKinnon, with attacking raids instigated by Macie Harris, William Cross and Mason Friend.

Everyone played well and it was our best game to date.

Keep up the good work!

Under 8s

Harden/Boorowa Bushhawks Under 8s and Cootamundra Bulldogs played a 26-all draw on Saturday. 

In a bruising encounter Justin Woodhead led the way, crossing for a early try but the big Coota forwards were taking some stopping and ran in two quick tries.

Ethan Abnett was brought into the attack and on the back of a strong run, Phoenix Daries was able to get across from dummy half to score his first of two for the match. Phoenix also converted his try to put us back in the lead. 

Billy Fogg was our best player on the day, closely followed by Tarell Karaitiana Halls, Angus Whybrow showed good determination Bailey McKinnon scored a beauty going the length of the field. 

Hamish Kennedy and Ethan Abnett joined the try scorers as well. Deklan Friend is playing strong and enjoying himself.

Sunday, Mother’s Day saw the U8s Bushhawks back in action at Canberra GIO Stadium where we took on the Cooma Cults. Full credit is to be given to all the boys they played in the true spirit of the game.

As a team showed great determination in attack and defence running out winners.

Under 14s

The Boorowa/Harden Under 14s had a gut wrenching last minute draw with Coota last Saturday in a seesawing game.

The Bulldogs got off to a good start putting on three tries before the Bushhawks finally woke from their slumber and started to defend like they know they can.

Once they reined in Coota’s attack through good defence from Patrick Davis, Beau Abnett, Cooper Cross and Ferg Munns BushHawks put together some attacking raids of their own! 

A long ball from Cooper Cross to speed machine Will Fahey set Tom Wales up to score in the corner giving the home team a 14-4 margin at the break.

The second half started a lot better for the Bushhawks with big defence once again from our forwards, with Joe Prosper and Mitchell Cassells leading the way.

Defence from our halves was outstanding with Hamish Minehan and Aidien Hill chopping down their much larger opponents every chance they got.

It wasn’t long before Patrick Davis the new hard man of the pack set Beau Abnett up in the corner.

Cooper Cross and Will Fahey’s combination was great to watch, With Will scoring three tries to give us a handy lead 24-14.

Few lapses from the kick offs gave the Bulldogs a sniff and they took full advantage scoring twice taking the score to 22-24.

A great individual try from Captain Cooper Cross outwide, and a missed conversion took the score to 28-22 with two minutes to go. A costly mistake by the coach, playing players out of position in the last two minutes saw the home team regather the kick off and score three tackles later and convert the try 28 all fulltime score.

Seth Hughston was solid at full back, Jesse Glover looks to have found a home as our utility, playing extremely well at hooker and wing, it was good to have Big Billy Ward back in the pack who along with Luke Dean gave valuable minutes in the middle.

The ever reliable Logan Mears was great in a number of positions which isn’t an easy task.

The Bushhawks were the better team for most of the game but a few simple errors cost them the win. This is a very strong team that will give the Comp a shake once they hit their straps
