Want­ing more af­ter the game with it all

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE game had ev­ery­thing – good for­ward hits, great back­line run­ning, won­der­ful de­fence, great scram­bling de­fence, trys, penal­ties and non-penal­ties.

Now ev­ery­one is wait­ing for an­other match be­tween the two foes.

Tur­tles are a pow­er­house team – they showed it on the night.

You don’t win five pre­mier­ships with­out be­ing an ex­cel­lent team.

Isis stepped up to the mark. Bring on the next game, hope­fully the grand fi­nal, be­tween Isis and Tur­tles to de­cide the bet­ter team.

Story of the day

Isis scored first with try to Brad Brighton, con­verted by Kale Hen­dle within first 10 min­utes.

Isis nar­rowly missed a penalty goal. Fif­teen min­utes later Tur­tles score and con­vert for a 7-7 score­line at half time.

Tur­tles scored first in se­cond half but didn’t con­vert the try. Isis, af­ter ap­ply­ing pres­sure for a long pe­riod, scored from a charge down of Matt Maroney for Tye Nash to score. Con­verted by Kale Hen­dle, score 14-12.

Tur­tles re­ceived an un­sure penalty to lead 15-14 with 10 mins to go. Isis at­tacked for 10 min­utes.

Heath Tis­dell was pulled down af­ter a sen­sa­tional run with four min­utes to go by won­der­ful Tur­tles de­fence af­ter look­ing cer­tain to score.

Chris Royan al­most scored on the way with two min­utes to go but lost the ball in a won­der­ful Tur­tles tackle over the line.

At full time in fi­nal play, Isis ap­peared to have a pos­si­ble penalty to win the game but the penalty was not given. Fi­nal score – Tur­tles 15, Isis 14.

Isis has de­cided this game is just the be­gin­ning and hopes to face the Tur­tles again in the premier­ship.
