Warriors win Belconnen battle

The West Belconnen Warriors have claimed a 24-10 win over the Belconnen United Sharks to keep their slim finals chances alive.

West Belconnen opened the scoring in the 11th minute when a Bobby Roberts cross-field kick found the grateful arms of Trent Vaughan.

The Sharks fought back and levelled the score when Matt Woolnough caught the West Belconnen markers napping to score from dummy half.

Roberts gave the Warriors the lead once again as he twisted and planted the ball over the line.

West Belconnen continued to attack down their left edge and were rewarded before the break when Vaughan beat his man off the back of a scrum to give the Warriors an 18-6 lead at the break.

The second half turned into more of a grind but the Warriors were the side to score first in the second half in unlikely circumstance. Prop Bayley Loughhead decided to put in a grubber kick which Mitch Shaw gathered to score.

The Sharks continued fighting and were reward when Iszac Bell scored out wide. However, it wasn’t enough as the Warriors claimed the win.

West Belconnen Warriors 24 (Tries: T Vaughan 2, R Roberts, M Shaw; Goals: R Roberts 4) d Belconnen United Sharks 10 (Tries: M Woolnough, I Bell; Goal: T Aroha-Tuinauvai)
