Sib­ling ri­valry on show in big bat­tle

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Carly Laden

A clas­sic case of sib­ling ri­valry saw the young and en­er­getic Sharks tri­umph over the Stingrays in the sev­enth round of touch foot­ball at Fa­ther McMa­hon Oval.

Sharks’ Orry and Sage Lovell took on their Stingrays brother Seth Lovell in a bat­tle to de­ter­mine who was su­pe­rior.

It was an even start, with both teams match­ing each other try for try. That was un­til Orry Lovell broke through the gates in break­neck speed, build­ing up to 7-3 lead at half time.

Orry was a clear stand­out in the first half with four tries to his name. His team­mate and sis­ter Sage scored a try for the Sharks, while brother Seth scored two for the Stingrays.

It was an in­tense start to the sec­ond half, with both teams ramp­ing up the de­fen­sive pres­sure.

But once Shark Jor­dan Ba­con got go­ing, there was no stop­ping him as he scored six tries to ex­tend the Sharks’ lead, play­ing an in­te­gral part in their 14-6 vic­tory over the Stingrays.

In terms of the friendly com­pe­ti­tion be­tween sib­lings, it was Orry Lovell who tri­umphed with a to­tal of five tries while Seth Lovell scored four.

Else­where in di­vi­sion 1, the Run­aways ran away with a 7-6 vic­tory over ARAC At­tack, the Bul­lets out­ran the Roey Roost­ers 7-6 and the Wil­lie Creek Crocs man­aged a for­feit vic­tory over the Stingers.

The Green­backs also smashed the Bush Chooks 11-4, while the Score­gasms and Touchy Feely drew level with each other at seven-a-piece.

Mean­while in di­vi­sion 2, the First Na­tional Rock­ets held off the Ex­ploders 5-4, the Tide Run­ners scored a much-needed vic­tory over The An­i­mals 9-4 and Yippee Try Yay out­lasted Touch It 5-4.
