Hard yards gained in junior footy
TIGERS U-6 coach said he was pleased with the efforts of all players who faced Clermont Bears at the weekend. Hayden Mann scored his first try for the club. Zane Scrivener scored a double, with Lincoln Beames also crossing the line. Karaitiana Fangatua played an outstanding game and was relentless in defence and also crossed over for a try. The coach said it was great to see the team improvement throughout the year.
BLACKWATER Crushers U-6 travelled to Middlemount, putting on one of their best performances this season. The man of the match awards went to Henry Sherwell and Julius Malone. Try scorers were Brody Sonter, Lewis Fursman, Bhodie Stitt, Sherwell, and Malone who crossed for three. Jarrod Ogrodniczek, Jacob Mathewson and Connor Flint made good running metres.
TIGERS displayed a committed team effort on the weekend against the Clermont Bears. Tackling was strong and the boys were backing each other up. The team manager said the structure was coming together well with good straight, hard lines being run in attack. Brayden Harper scored a try and Lochie Nixon scored two. Rohan Mann was player of the week, adding four tries to the team tally and showing strong defence.
BLACKWATER Crushers U-8 got off to a flying start against Middlemount with an early try to Connor Peterson. Middlemount countered with a try of their own, however the Blackwater team’s line was not crossed again in the half due to great defence by Dylan O’Brien-Smith and Leah Reid. The second half became a try feast for the Crushers with Bailey Olive, Dylan O’Brien-Smith and Connor Peterson all crossing the line. Man of the match Marcus Jackson played his best game of the year, delivering the final pass for three tries. Best defenders on the day were Tom McKenzie and Ryan Ogrozniak who worked tirelessly in the tackling department.
EMERALD Brothers Blue toughed it out against Dysart Bulls earlier this month, in the side’s first game back from the school holidays. Cane Comiskey, Trey Mitchell and Zach Pyle led Blue’s defensive effort across all corners of the pitch was supported strongly in attack by Talha Sajjad and Beau Hall who made plenty of hard-earned metres down field with their hit-ups. However the greasy conditions made ball possession a difficult task to master and inevitably a few mistakes started to appear. Brothers offered some resistance to Dysart’s scoring charge with a try to Lachlan Rouse but the lead proved too great, with Dysart eventually prevailing.
