Flyers on high after win
Pegy Flyers got their first win of the season in last Thursday’s round 11, after a hardfought, skilful game against the Falcons.
Swift play from both sides in the first half made progress far from easygoing, and the match scoreboard stood at 13-all at half-time.
But the Flyers broke away early in the second and established a 10-point buffer.
They kept up the scoring pace from then on, as the Falcons were unable to close the margin, and were rewarded with a 33-24 win.
