Wentworthville U14 Girls Match Report
Round 14 Wentworthville 14 – Rooty Hill 18
What an improvement from last week! The girls really tried their best and played a gutsy game.
We scored first in the corner by Charleez, conversion by Azalea was unsuccessful. Then Rooty Hill hit back and scored out wide, their conversion also unsuccessful. Great metres were made from dummy half by Saviour, followed by Elena & Esei running strong onto the ball and getting the next play ready, for Phoenix to score under the post. Conversion by Azalea successful. Rooty Hill ran the ball out wide and hit us down the edge (Azalea, Elena & Tameka) made the tackle on the opposition, but she managed to free her arm and put the ball over the try line. Half-time 10-8 our way.
We received the ball in the 2nd half and knocked it on. We had to defend, a miss tackle and a offload saw Rooty Hill score in the corner. 10-12 to Rooty Hill. Everyone got involved Hemu, Azalea, Charleez, Esei and Tauaiupolu saw an opportunity out wide and scored. 14-12 to Wenty. The girls had to keep defending the line, as we were hit with a lot of penalties. Rooty Hill saw a gap and scored under the post, conversion successful. 18-14 to Rooty Hill. We played a great game, but the opposition were better on the day!
