Weary Pirates on the up despite loss
SPRINGSURE Mountain Men defeated Peak Downs Pirates 28-8 in Springsure at the weekend.
After a strong start that saw the Mountain Men leading by 16 points at the break, the Pirates responded with some great second-half defence despite players being thin on the ground.
Best for Pirates was Shaun Fay and Ash Dougherty in the front row.
“We played for a while there with only 12 blokes,” Pirates coach Kurt Sullivan said, feeling positive about the remainder of the season.
“We’re actually on the improve.
“We’re making enough line-breaks, we just need to capitalise on our opportunities and start scoring tries.”
Springsure coach Ben Sullivan spoke highly of his charges’ defensive effort this week.
“Our defence was excellent - it kept us in the game,” he said.
Springsure’s man of the match was Wayne York, with Kurt Crowley also having a great game in the centres.
