Dungog Warriors Under 14’s vs West Maitland

The Warriors under 14 team travelled to McKeachie’s Complex to play West Maitland.
Our first full strength team for the season saw the game played in trying conditions. In heavy drizzle visibility was obviously reduced as West Maitland crossed for their first try in minutes after the kickoff.
Keen words from Craig and Jason saw the Warriors quickly regroup and step into stride. Khelan Stevenson crossing for a try and followed up with the conversion.
Huge efforts in attack came from Jack Walters, Alex Rooke, Ryan Wilson and Drew Grant. Bryson Stevenson quick to back up with Josh Hayward broke the Wests attack at play after play.
Josh Haskins and Brando Brandon setting play, seeing Wyll Darr cross the line on three occasions in exception team play and individual ability.
Again Jack Fisher proved his ability as an all round player and Damon Boland making three tackles in succession saw the Warriors dictate the terms of play.
The signature step of Kurt Wallace and consistent plays of Hayden Badior ensured the Warriors won both the mental game and the point score at 22-16.
Congratulations Pup and Ajax, the under 14s are developing sound skills and more importantly a sense of sportsmanship beyond their years. Sean Wallace
