The opening half hour of footy saw both teams go from one end of the field to the other without either threating the try lines to much. From the sideline you could see whoever was to score first was going to get their sails up and make it a lot easier to take the points. With Ed Price taking an intercept, it was a sure thing he would open the account for the men in blue, however he was called back for being off side. Condo took the opportunity and turned it into a 5 pointer of their own in the next few phases of play. The teams went into half time with Condo leading 7-0.
The second half was one-way traffic for Condo in the first ten minutes. Even the return of “The King” Pete Middleton could not spur the boys onto a victory. Though Pete was unlucky not to get a 5 pointer in his first game of the year. Stu Gavin seemed as though he got his first meat pie of the year but was short of the line. Soon after the Pythons leading try scorer showed how it was done with Toddy Wyburn crashing over for a consolation try towards the end of the game.
A lot of the boys dug in well with the front rowers of Dude Williams, Stu Gavin and Jacob Baker all having great games against a huge pack from Condo. In the backs the experience of Craig McKenzie and Ed Price helped the young talent of Tim Middleton and Jamie Grant get around the paddock. McClintock’s best and fairest points for the day went to 3 points and player’s player to Jack Beath, 2 points went to Jack Knight and 1 point each went to Dan Bowd and Luke Watt.
This weekend Canowindra play host to Blayney at 315pm at the oval.
