Gayn­dah v Eidsvold

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

GAYN­DAH Gla­di­a­tors showed their fight­ing spirit to achieve a de­fin­i­tive 28-8 win against the Eidsvold Ea­gles on Fri­day night.

One Ea­gles player was walked off the field with an in­jury early in the first half, while his team­mates ran a determined de­fence, which pre­vented the Gla­di­a­tors from scor­ing.

Blake Popp scored first for the Ea­gles 14 min­utes into the game.

Late in the first half Gla­di­a­tors Josh Robert­son and Shane Mor­gan each scored a try, and both were con­verted by Ben Kenny.

This gave the Gla­di­a­tors a firm 12-4 lead go­ing into the break.

An­nouncer Vin­nie Sch­mierer said Eidsvold were the first to score in the sec­ond half due to a favourable bounce of the ball.

“Gayn­dah gained mo­men­tum and strate­gi­cally worked their way into the match, com­ing away with a much-needed win,” Sch­mierer said.

The Gla­di­a­tors’ Ben Kenny again con­verted two tries in the sec­ond half for his team to win 28-8.
