Score­gasms on the At­tack

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Carly Laden

Score­gasms bounced back from a pre­vi­ous smash­ing, beat­ing ARAC At­tack 10-7 on March 22.

In the sixth round of com­pe­ti­tion at Fa­ther McMa­hon Oval, Score­gasms were ready from the first whis­tle.

Score­gasms got off to a great start in the open­ing min­utes of the match, scor­ing two suc­ces­sive tries within five min­utes.

ARAC At­tack strug­gled to keep up with Score­gasms’ fast pace but even­tu­ally found their rhythm by scor­ing a few tries and build­ing pres­sure.

It looked to be a close match when Score­gasms held the lead by only one point at half-time.

But Score­gasms re­peated their pat­tern of putting the pedal to the metal and scor­ing early in the sec­ond half.

ARAC At­tack tried to re­main within grasp of the lead, con­tin­u­ing to step up the pres­sure and scor­ing a few tries of their own.

What fol­lowed was a bit of backand-forth be­tween the two teams as they tried to match each other point-for-point.

But ARAC At­tack ul­ti­mately fell short of a vic­tory when Score­gasms pro­ceeded to ex­tend their lead in the clos­ing min­utes of the match.

Else­where in divi­sion 1, Bul­lets and Sharks con­tin­ued to be highly com­pet­i­tive teams, smash­ing Ru­n­aways, 13-2, and Touchy Feely, 17-4.

Wil­lie Creek Crocs also man­aged a vic­tory over Green­backs 9-5, Roey Roost­ers de­feated Bush Chooks 8-2, and St­ingrays man­aged a for­feit vic­tory over Stingers.

In divi­sion 2, Yippee Try Yay cheered them­selves to an 11-3 vic­tory over First Na­tional Rock­ets, Touch It de­feated Tide Run­ners 5-0, and Ex­ploders blew Broome Pi­rates’ chances of win­ning with a 9-5 vic­tory.
