We also scored 19 in 3rds, but so did Warnervale for a drawn result. It was a big game for Lochie Peruch backing up from the Colts, he scored 2 tries, kicked 2 conversons, got 2pts and players player! Daniel Ranson scored the other try with 1pt to Connor Kondrat and 3pts to Tim Newton - the match sheet tells me Tim was halfback! A new career for our u19s prop??
2nds were in a very tight match and held on to claim a 15-13 victory. Tries to Jake McPhie & Matt Norman with Sam Evans kicking a conversion and penalty. 1pt to Mitch Mitchell, 2pts Rhys Stratton, 3pts and players player Matt Norman.
Then on to the top grade and a minute silence pre-game in memory of Greg Pierce. Warnervale opened the scoring with an intercept, but by half time we had a 15-12 lead. That went out to 20-12 before a couple of quick tries had them back in front 24-20. A late try got us back in front 25-24 before they scored off the last play of the match and we went down 25-29. Tries to Blake Jacob, Chad Martin, Julian Bacigalupo, Luke Wiseman & Sam Evans. 1pt Chad Martin & Luke Wiseman, 2pts Peter Steele, 3pts & players player Julian Bacigalupo. Congratulations to Joe Carroll on his first grade run on debut, hope the shoulder is feeling better Joe!
Next Saturday Colts play Terrigal 11:20 at Slade Park and 3rds play The Entrance at the Sharkpool at 12:30. Top 2 grades have a bye. Cheers Boys!
