Sun­day saw the Cougars travel to Green­field Park in Al­bury to play Wodonga Storm.

Both teams were still cel­e­brat­ing the pre­vi­ous week’s win, with the girls beat­ing the Wom­bats 58-4 and the boys 72-0.

The Cougar ladies hit the field for the sec­ond game of the day against the un­de­feated Wodonga Storm. The girls played strong but weren’t able to match the pace of the Wodonga team, who scored sev­eral times in the first half.

Emily Gardner man­aged to steal the ball from Wodonga to score and con­vert the Cougars’ only try in the first half.

Af­ter a half time chat, the girls headed back out hop­ing to come back stronger in the sec­ond half. The girls played a tough game un­til the very end but un­for­tu­nately Wodonga were too strong com­ing away with the win.

The boys stepped up next hop­ing to come away with another great win. The first half was a tight game with every Cougar try be­ing an­swered by a Wodonga try.

At the half time buzzer it was three Corowa tries to Wodonga’s two.

The boys came into the sec­ond half strong, hop­ing to hold onto their lead but Wodonga man­aged to score twice.

The boys played a coura­geous game but Wodonga even­tu­ally came away with the win, 18-12.
