Queanbeyan Blues 22 d Yass Magpies 6
The Queanbeyan Blues pulled off a stunning upset with a 16 point win over the top of the table Yass Magpies at Phillip Oval on Saturday.
Heading into the match the Magpies were undefeated and had only conceded four points. But the Blues produced a great attacking display and were able to run over the top of the Magpies.
It took the Blues just eight minutes to open the scoring, with centre Klaudia Osztrenkovics making a break and running 35 metres to score under the posts. Payge-Louise Condon successfully converted to give her side a 6-0 lead.
Krystyana Haridemos extended Queanbeyan's lead, bursting her way over the line for a try. The score remained at 10-0 at half-time.
Yass were first on the board in the second half, with Samara Afele scoring a four-pointer and Shannon Wright successfully adding the extras to make it 10-6.
But the Blues extended their lead a few minutes later after hooker Condon scooted out of dummy half and planted the ball over the try-line.
Queanbeyan sealed the win with Osztrenkovics scoring her second try of the day, with the final score 22-16.
The win sees the Blues finish the round in outright third place, while the Magpies still sit on top of the ladder thanks to their superior for-and-against record.
