Dungog Warriors Under 10s vs Kurri Kurri

On Saturday we travelled to Kurri Kurri to take on the bulldogs. Kurri scored in the first 5 minutes with some uncommon missed tackles from the Warriors. Following the restart, we had some great runs up field where Connor Hannan dived over from dummy half. Kurri scored pretty much straight away with a run up the sideline & the Bulldog’s player was too quick for our defence. Just before half time Cooper Gorton crashed his way over the line using all his strength carrying nearly the whole team over with him. At half time we were trailing 12 – 10. The second half started well when Tom Lovegrove kicking the ball dead from the restart, resulting in a goal line drop out. This was the turning point as our boys kicked into gear, running in 8 tries & kicking 6 goals in the final 17 minutes. With Taylor Hunt 2, Tom Lovegrove, Jacob Duck, Darcy Mackay, Isaac Edwards & Finley Stevenson crossing the line for tries. These tries were all made possible through the efforts of Charlie Boorer, Mia Finch, Nick Baker & Connor Beisler tackling their hearts out in defence & excellent work off the ball. Their defence for the entire second half was absolutely outstanding. There wasn’t one standout player the whole game, there were 13 standouts. With their first 3 games being comprehensive wins, the kids have been re-graded into first division, which will be a challenge, but a challenge Im sure they will handle quite well. Great work boys & girl. See you at training on Tuesday. Kenneth Gorton
