Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

THE con­di­tions were slip­pery, but the Monto Roos weren’t go­ing to let the game slip when they took on the Eidsvold Ea­gles on June 3.

With con­cen­tra­tion hats on, the home team let the op­po­si­tion score just one try.

At full-time, the fi­nal score was 48-6 to the Roos.

Roos coach Mathew Dahtler was proud of his team’s per­for­mance and

said it helped boost over­all con­fi­dence.

“We won the game be­cause of our strong de­fence, and made the other team do er­rors,” he said.

“There were a few show­ers, the con­di­tions were slip­pery, but it wasn’t too bad.

“It was a lapse of con­cen­tra­tion that let the other team score.”

Train­ing has been an in­flu­enc­ing fac­tor in the team’s per­for­mance, ac­cord­ing to the coach.

“More peo­ple have started com­ing to train­ing, and now that we’ve had some wins, play­ers are more mo­ti­vated,” Dahtler said.

“We are grad­u­ally get­ting bet­ter as we go through the sea­son.”

Though Monto and Eidsvold were ri­vals at the week­end, they will be play­ing to­gether dur­ing the Men of League match this Satur­day.

“I re­ally thing the two teams com­bined will be one strong team,” Dahtler said.

Kick-off will be at 2pm at the Monto Com­bined Sports­ground.
