Following from the League Tag Ladies, the Youth League Tigers were also able to defeat the Grenfell Goannas with a fantastic game as the final score was 20 – 14.
This is the first time in the season that the Youth League players have had a full team. Jayden Brown returned from a 6 week injury to play his first game back for Youth League and made an outstanding effort as he scored two tries in the first half.
The defence that the Tigers displayed was the best they have done yet as they prevented Grenfell from scoring numerous times. A fantastic runaway try was scored by Luke Tarrant in the first half as he dodged through the Goannas and ran to score perfectly under the posts.
As they went into the half time break they were in the lead 16 – 4. With the excitement of playing with a full team, the boys new that they had the better chance in winning this game.
Bailey Cain was able to score an effortless try in the second half as his agility weaved him straight through Grenfell’s defence line. He was awarded Players Player for his incredible performance throughout the whole game. Bailey displayed a ‘no fear’ attitude as he ran and tackled Goanna players that were double his size.
They are all very eager to train hard this week as they head in to verse the top of the ladder team Peak Hill. Congratulations Canowindra Tigers Youth League!
