Ea­gles take flight over the Roost­ers

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

THEODORE Roost­ers hit the Eidsvold field run­ning on Satur­day with an early con­verted try to Travis An­der­son but the Ea­gles played with en­thu­si­asm and man­aged a 32-30 win.

Af­ter Theodore’s Shane Hooper added an­other four points to the vis­i­tor’s score, Eidsvold hit back with tries to Stan­ley Bligh and Cas­sius Collins, one of which Bligh con­verted and the scores were level on 10-10.

An un­con­verted try to Theodore’s Eben Nor­ris and a con­verted one to Eidsvold’s Bert Bee­z­ley meant the teams went to the half-time break with the Ea­gles two points ahead.

Be­gin­ning with a con­verted try to Eidsvold’s Ja­son Bligh, the teams took turns cross­ing each other’s lines in the closely con­tested sec­ond half.

Bee­z­ley crossed again as did Damian Jenk­ins and Collins added two points with a suc­cess­ful kick for goal.

Sec­ond half try scor­ers for Theodore were: Nathan Braden, Hooper, Justin An­der­son and Hughes con­verted the first two.

A suc­cess­ful con­ver­sion of An­der­son’s try would have lev­elled the scores at 32-32 but the kick nar­rowly missed, hand­ing the game to the Ea­gles.
