It was runners-up for the Bingara Polocrosse Club when they attended the Quirindi Polocrosse Carnival recently at the Quirindi Showgrounds. The Bingara team consisted of Phil Frewen, Jessica Barnes, Marc Tongue, Melissa Hanson, Lisa Clarke and Jason Creed.
Saturday morning saw Bingara come up against Inverell in a grading game.
The game stayed even throughout the first two chuckers then Bingara were able to press ahead and display some excellent defence and attacking skills to take an easy win. The Saturday afternoon saw Bingara come up against the Muswellbrook side in what was an exciting game.
Bingara knew there would be a challenge and were able to take a comfortable lead during the first few chuckers. The competition come back fighting after half time however Bingara were able to hold them off and take the win 10 points to four.
This win then put Bingara in the grand final against Galloping Gully in what was always set to be one tough match. The Gully boys come out rough and ready and up for a battle. Bingara were determined to not be put off and managed to keep the attacking and defence even and the scores close.
The game was challenging and exciting and unfortunately for Bingara the Gully boys managed to come out on top for the win. Bingara however still walked away with a prize coming runners up whilst Marc Tongue was awarded best number three player for the weekend.
The Bingara Polocrosse Club were also due to hold their annual carnival a few weeks ago, however due to unforseen circumstances this was cancelled and it is now scheduled to be run on 25 and 26 July 2009.
The Bingara Polocrosse Club is also keen to invite anyone who is interested in having a go at what is a sport for the whole family to join up and come along for great weekends of fun.
Polocrosse is a fantastic horse sport that the whole family can enjoy. Every weekend you’re guaranteed great games of polocrosse and a chance to relax and have fun in a friendly family environment.
Changes to memberships now allow for people to sign up and try out for three carnivals at a lot cheaper price.
This means you can have a go at what is an exciting sport and see if it is to your liking. People who have also previously played before can do this as well instead of signing up for the whole season.
So if you are interested in playing polocrosse you should stop thinking about it and give Louise Dailey a call on 02 6723 6671.
Everybody is welcome.
