01 May U9C Como v De La Salle – Won 26-24
The Como Under 9’s are on a roll with 2 wins in a row. In a back and forward game, the sensational goal kicking proved to be the difference as Como edged a fast finishing De La Salle side to take the win and keep momentum in a tight competition.
Liam Bruce: An excellent scoot from dummy half saw him open his scoring account for the season and some great front on defence from marker almost held-up another De La try.
Connor Curtis: A sensational try off a tap restart saw Connor blast through the De La defensive line for a try and also made terrific metres on a series of elusive runs.
Austin Keys: Put on a huge ‘Sonny Bill style’ hit midway through the second half to snuff out a De la attacking opportunity and let everyone know who owned the middle of the park.
Harley Stubbings: Some great direct runs, mixed in with a beautiful offload game kept the defence in two minds as to what Harley was up to all game.
Isaiah Murr: A great try in the first half combined with a clinical conversion in the second to help Como take the lead, had Isaiah contributing to all facets of the game.
Finn O’Keeffee: Stirling work from First Receiver and relentless chasing from Marker saw Finn take home a ‘Man of the Match’ Performance.
Lachlan Poole: Displayed his ever expanding game with a conversion that never looked like going anywhere but over the black dot, combined with some solid defence saw Lachy submit another great effort.
Zac Rogers: A great try in the second half, splitting a pair of tired De La forwards with great pace, as well as his outstanding support play of the Como Ball runners, saw Zac contribute to all the “1%’s” that helped Como take the win.
Luke Walsh: Showed a great side-step to get Como on the board, followed by the conversion and showed fantastic commitment in cover defence to shut down a number of De La Line breaks.
