Last weekend’s game ended up being playful as Gooloogong didn’t have enough players to compete. The Tigresses decided to split into groups and play for fun and due to the forfeit Canowindra nabbed two points anyway. Everyone had fun and it was good for the Tigresses to practise against their team mates.
Canowindra Youth Players dominated the Grenfell Goannas at Gooloogong with a win of 34-16. The boys had a strong start which carried throughout the game. Luke Tarrant and Jack Grant scored two fantastic tries each along with Will Middleton and Jayden Brown scoring 1 try each. Jayden Brown’s kicks were spot on for this game as he got 5/6 conversion kicks and also made a perfect 40/20. The team wingers Ebann Malae and Tinei Sauvao had great games and showed improvement in tackling and defence. Players’ player went to Bailey Cain for his outstanding performance on the day. The team now prepare for next week’s tough game against top of the ladder, Peak Hill.
The Canowindra Tigers boys defeated Gooloogong 60-26. It was a great turn out due to the Nugget Cup Memorial that Canowindra are privileged to be a part of. Matt Mclean was at his best, not missing a kick with 10 out of 10 conversions. Good defence by Curtis Hughes and Blake Willson as they refused to let Gooloogong pass. Try scorers were Nick Willson 2, Brydon Hughes 2, Adam Micallef 2, Aaron Earsman 2, Brendan Traves 1 and Jayden Brown 1. Players’ player went to Captain Aaron Earsman for another fantastic game, he is a credit to the team.
