Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Carly Laden

Green­backs have con­tin­ued to re­main supreme atop the Broome Touch As­so­ci­a­tion’s divi­sion 1 com­pe­ti­tion af­ter se­cur­ing a 6-2 vic­tory over Tox Free Run­aways in the sev­enth round.

The Run­aways were de­ter­mined to top­ple the top side with great de­fen­sive pres­sure early on although the Green­backs were quick to drive the ball up the field.

Shortly af­ter, Mick Al­bert got the first try of the night for the Green­backs leav­ing the Run­ways won­der­ing how they would shut their op­po­si­tion down.

De­spite a rel­a­tively even con­test mid­field, Green­backs speed­sters Jor­dan Ba­con and Joey Kain brought the match to an­other level, ex­tend­ing their lead by two more tries.

Although the Run­aways were strug­gling to get past the Green­backs’ de­fences, Paul Boon man­aged to get his team on the board to leave the half-time score at 3-1.

Af­ter the main break, Ba­con was quick to score for the Green­backs de­spite Run­aways’ Fletcher Ghan­dour giv­ing good chase.

As the Green­backs stepped it up, fum­bles be­gan to cost the Run­aways pre­cious points as Ba­con con­tin­ued to speed past to add to the Green­backs’ tally. A late try from Kim Green gave the Run­aways a lit­tle so­lace in keep­ing the mar­gin be­low five points as the Green­backs held on to take home the vic­tory.

Else­where in divi­sion 1, ALL­STARS se­cured a com­fort­able win over ARAC At­tack 10-2, Stingrays tri­umphed over Primewest Pan­thers 11-6, and Score­gasms drew level with Roey Roost­ers at 4-all.

Mean­while in divi­sion 2, The An­i­mals smashed Balls Deep 16-2, Bush Chooks held off Yippee Try Yay 6-3, Ex­ploders de­feated Broome Pi­rates 9-5, and First Na­tional Rock­ets blasted the Stingers 8-5.
