Crush­ers ride on a wave of mo­men­tum

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

ISIS Crush­ers ap­proach their big home games this week­end on the back of one of their best per­for­mances this sea­son.

Isis crushed Waves Fal­cons 17-0 in their en­counter last week, but will face a white-hot Tur­tles out­fit cel­e­brat­ing a 12-7 win over ri­vals Bar­bar­ians.

The Crush­ers’ dom­i­na­tion of the set plays pro­vided the side an ad­van­tage over their ad­ver­saries, as they worked the Fal­cons across the field in an at­tempt to find an op­por­tu­nity.

The in­jec­tion of the Crush­ers’ Ton­gan im­ports into the tight five proved a game changer for the good guys, and the ex­tra power and pre­ci­sion helped as­sert Isis’ dom­i­nance.

Their proven abil­ity to re­peat­edly bend the Fal­cons’ de­fen­sive line al­lowed the Isis for­wards to take full con­trol, and it was of no sur­prise that all three tries came via the en­gine room.

If any­thing made the play­ers and coach­ing staff happy it was their de­fen­sive ef­fort, which did not al­low any points.

The ac­tion will start at 4pm as the over-35 Isis Sugar Dad­dies go head-to-head with the Bund­aberg Rum Ruck­ers.

Fal­cons and Bar­bar­ians will face off at 5pm with the main game sched­uled to kick off at 6.30pm at Childers Show­ground.
