Isis goes two in a row

Ju­niors show off skills in Crush­ers Cup cur­tain raiser

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

TWO WINS on the trot has given Isis Crush­ers a new wave of con­fi­dence for the Spring Cup.

The sur­prise win over Bar­bar­ians two weeks ago painted a tar­get on Isis but try as they might, the Fal­cons couldn’t wear down the Crush­ers at Childers Show­ground.

Isis adopted a “play smart, not hard” ap­proach to their clash with Fal­cons, and it was that decision which led them to the 16-12 vic­tory.

Ja­son Palmer and Bren­den Mor­ris shared the Player of the Day in recog­ni­tion of their ex­cep­tional per­for­mances.

Palmer led the side with tire­less de­fence while Mor­ris rat­tled the op­po­si­tion with crush­ing hits to stop cer­tain points.

Welsh im­ports Barry Gwynn and Jack Mor­ris were again out­stand­ing, while Wayne “Cookie” Cooke made a cameo in the front row.

Kale Hen­dle scored a try and kicked two penal­ties, while Heath Tris­dall fin­ished with a con­ver­sion and a penalty to his name.

BE­FORE the big boys ran out for their Spring Cup fix­tures, the stage was set for some of our ju­nior foot­ballers to shine.

The Crush­ers Cup saw the Isis Cut­ters take on the Bundy Bar­bar­ians in a match more about fun than the fi­nal score.

Both sides put on a dis­play of skil­ful pass­ing, eva­sive run­ning and com­mit­ted tack­ling, with Cut­ters even­tu­ally run­ning away with a 32-14 win.

The re­sult was merely an end­note to the game, with all play­ers re­ceiv­ing a medal for par­tic­i­pa­tion.
