Cowboys Bulldozed by Dysart

WATCHING either half of the Dysart Bulls-Emerald Cowboys game, you could have sworn the two teams swapped jerseys.

After taking a back-seat ride in Dysart’s 42-point demolition in the opening half, Emerald bounced back to concede just one try in the second-half.

But the damage was done and the Bulls finished easy 48-4 victors.

Cowboys’ spokesperson Damon Walsh said he had nothing but admiration for

Emerald’s second-half performance.

“I thought we were gone in the second half - we only had 13 players left and looked really tired but full credit to the boys,” he said. “We had a lot of trouble defending in the first half, especially their five-eighth and their forwards. They made a lot of ground. But I can’t speak highly enough of how well we defended (in the second-half).”

Dysart coach Bill Devine said despite making “big yards” in attack, the execution certainly slipped in the second stanza.

“It was all reflected in the statistics and completions,” Devine said. “I’m not real sure what happened after the break, I guess we were just a little over enthusiastic.”
