No thirds either so after a bit of a break and everyone keeping in the shade the 2nds went out and faced some very strong opposition from Kariong. The game was very close for a long time before we pulled away at the end for a 47-19 win. 2 tries to Moses Fotofili and tries to Josh Blackwell, Brook Cheezy Morrow (welcome back Cheezy!), Nathan Brown and Daniel Ranson. 5 conversions to Nathan Smith and 1 to Luke McPhie. Also a penalty try. 1pt Tim Warwick, 2pts Josh Blackwell and 3pts Jesse Pavlovich - Jesse Pav & Josh Blackwell shared the players player.
1sts started off quickly and coach Matt Parker was full of smiles after the opening tries were scored by front rowers. We always had control of the game but Kariong really put in a big effort even with many players backing up from the 2nds. Final score was 72-29. Big day for Joshua Fash Meadham who scored 2 tries, kicked the last conversion and got the 3pts and players player! 2 tries and 2 conversions to Mitchell Jacob, 1 try and a conversion to birthday boy Daniel Aguirre-Acevedo. Tries to Luke Sheridan, Max Stewart, Elliot Dawkins, Blake Jacob, Jack Booker, Justin Staben, and Thomas Starkey - who scored off his very first touch in his first appearance in first grade. Nathan Brown kicked 2 conversions. 1pt Luke Wiseman & debutant Matt Norman, 2pts Max Stewart.
Next week is the final round before the semis and we host The Entrance/Northlakes in Seniors. Again we must win both 1sts and 2nds to have any chance of a spot in the semis and 3rds will be looking to wrap up the minor premiership. Team photo day for Colts and Seniors, fancy dress day with a Hawaiian theme and music after the games from Eddie Williams . A big day for everyone! Thanks to the good crowd who showed up to support us today .. Cheers Boys
