Isis walk the walk over Bar­bar­ians

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

MOVE over Quade Cooper and James Her­well, we have Quade Broughton and James Har­ney, plus add our two young ladies, Te­gan Shee­han’s and Fiona Ped­del’s names in the Childers Pri­mary School, or more cor­rectly, Isis Cut­ters U12 team which, cap­tained by Chad Booker, won the An­toa Toia Shield for Best Spir­ited pri­mary school rugby union team in Bund­aberg Schools re­gion.

“I’m de­lighted not only to get sec­ond in com­pe­ti­tion but to win this as best sports is the cream on top,” said Gary Marvell.

The tro­phies were pre­sented at Childers Pri­mary School assem­bly on Fri­day.

Fri­day night saw Isis vs Bar­bar­ians.

Isis had to bounce back af­ter last week’s loss. Down 7–nil.

Ear­lier the Isis boys be­gan to the chal­lenge. Bar­bar­ians talked the talk this week but they couldn’t “walk the walk”.

The fi­nal score flat­tered Bar­bar­ians as Isis em­bar­rassed Bar­bar­ians into un­con­tested scrums.

“It was a pow­er­ful for­ward de­ter­mi­na­tion,” said coach Gary Maroney.

Isis needed a larger bench and with By­ron Hardy, Ben Devlin, Chris Royan, Ri­ley Golchert, Daniel Con­nolly, we had num­bers to play with.

For­wards Kallum Mor­gan, Ben Flem­ing, Pe­ter Van Rooyan, Ethan Pip­pia, Josh Hutchins and Ja­son Palmer were pow­er­ful.

The backs started to get in com­bi­na­tion with Tom Green, Stephen Pick­ers­gill, Jake Bauer and Bren­dan Mor­ris plus a won­der­ful in­tro­duc­tion by our Ton­gan quadrella – Tre­vita, Sione, Apa­iata and Mapa to Isis Rugby.

In the first half, the first try to Kale Hen­dle af­ter a quick tap then fol­lowed up quickly by a sec­ond try to Ty Nash run­ning off the back of a ruck.

Isis went in half-time 10-7 ahead.

In the sec­ond half Isis scored through lonely backs play by Man of the Match An­drew Golchert and Kale Hen­dle for Heath Tis­dell to score.

So many more op­por­tu­ni­ties in the sec­ond half, like club cen­te­nar­ian Brad Brighton bustling through Bar­bar­ians’ de­fence, only to pass and lose the ball over the line.

“Will have to stop sim­ple mis­takes but we are get­ting bet­ter,” says coach Gary Maroney.

A good re­sult. Isis 15, Bar­bar­ians 7.
