Blackwater back on track at home
CONFIDENCE is running high in the Blackwater Crushers camp after a vital 34-12 win over Emerald Tigers in Blackwater.
With the Tigers having already beaten a competition favourite in the Peak Downs Pirates earlier this season, the test was on for Crushers to continue their good run of form against a hot-cold Emerald outfit.
“Overall I think we backed up well from Bluff,” Crushers president Brett Hansen said. “We talked about not being complacent and that really showed from the start. We slacked off a little around half-time but we put our foot down and got on with it.”
Tigers’ coach Phil Rooney said they struggled to match the weighty Blackwater pack.
“They were just too big, too strong on the night,” Rooney said. “They were running through us all night.”
He said they regained some composure by the 40-minute mark but the damage had already been done.
