Minor League, but major win!

July 31, 2012

This week Bingara Minor League hosted Inverell East at Gwydir Oval.  The 8’s was an exciting game with each team going try for try.  Neither team gave up and it went right down to the wire with Inverell East coming out victorous 46-44.  Tries to Thomas Young (4), Isaak Johnson (3), Brooke McKinnon (1), Steven Todd (1) and conversions by Brooke McKinnon, Steven Todd and Thomas Young.

The 10’s had a great first half and at half time the score was 22-22 with tries to Jake White, Dylan McKinnon, Joseph Smyth and Jack Todd. Conversions were by Jake White, Tyler Greacen, Dylan McKinnon and Miki Stamenkovic. The 2nd half saw Jack Todd score 2 tries, the last one scored right on full time to level the scores.  It was Josh Armstrong’s conversion that made the final score 34-32 to Bingara. Another win and another fantatic all round team effort.  Well done boys.
