First win of the sea­son for the Isis Devils at home

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

The long drought is fi­nally over for the Isis Devils.

After not win­ning a match for al­most a year, which ac­tu­ally came in the fi­nals se­ries last year, they re­turned to the win­ners cir­cle with a 32-14 win over Eastern Sub­urbs at home last Satur­day.

Com­plet­ing their first win in the league this sea­son, it is the first time they have won dur­ing the regular sea­son since de­feat­ing the same side on July 18 last year.

Four tries in a stand out per­for­mance by Jack Rowan was the dif­fer­ence be­tween the two teams.

Talk­ing after the game, cap­tain Peter Grant said it was a re­lief to break the drought.

“Ev­ery­one was re­ally happy. It felt like we’ve won a grand fi­nal with the way we cel­e­brated,” Grant said.

Pay­ing credit to all the play­ers in the team, Grant said it has been tough at times as the club suf­fered big de­feats.

“All the boys turn up each week and all have got big hearts,” he said.

“It was good to win on spon­sors day for our fans and club.”

Not con­tent with one win, Grant said the team would aim for more in the fi­nal three weeks of the sea­son.

Mean­while the loss to Easts ends their chances of fi­nals, with the Wal­la­roos to fin­ish fifth this sea­son.

Club pres­i­dent Kevin Grant said the women’s team im­pressed coaches walk­ing away with their first points of the sea­son.

“Our women’s team have a great chance lead­ing up to the fi­nals, with only three-games to go,” Grant said.

“Our girls team are strong play­ers and the draw last week­end lifted their spir­its head­ing into the fi­nals, next sea­son we could pos­si­bly see a fur­ther two teams join the women’s league.”
