Blacks 10 v Featherstone 8
An entertaining and end to end game for the Owls this morning.
We fell behind to two early goals but quickly recovered to go 3-2 before the lead changed hands a number of time. We were 7-6 down going into the last 10 minutes but the team showed some real determination to claw it back and then defended like their lives depended on it.
Junior played him first game in goal for us today and kept us in the game with some fantastic saves early on as Fev looked like running riot.
Our defence was solid. Will, Blake, Fin and James all put in some tough tackles, worked hard and did everything they could to defend the lead in the last few minutes.
Dexter and Daliso never stopped running on the wings and both some great skill when taking players on.
Amelia and Bailey were creative in the middle, setting each other up for a goal and causing problems for the Fev defence all morning.
Nour played on his own up front today, and was unlucky not score a couple but did set up a goal for Daliso with a lovely pass across the goal.
Players of the Match
Amelia - Her usual high energy performance, set up a great goal for Bailey and got one herself which she thoroughly deserved.
Junior - First ever game, made some great saves and was brave in getting down at the feet of the Fev attack. Played on after taking a right hit to the face.
Daliso x 5 Bailey x 3 Amelia Dexter
Great attitude from the team this morning and deserved the win.
