Uralla defeat Gallant Missiles

April 21, 2008

The Bingara Missiles Oz Tag team started slowly in their game against Uralla and was down 10-0 at half time in cold, freezing conditions. The team, Kelly Welsh, Bec Wilkins, Cindy Atkins, Mandy Alley, Carissa Riley, Tina Arvella, Kyra Beasley, Jess Heal and Jacky Sullivan certainly got their game together in the second half.

Uralla only scored two further tries and the Bullets added one when Cindy Atkins scored.

The final score was 14-2. Part of the problem was the lack of organisation for their game and the standing around waiting for game officials in very cold conditions, did not help. It was also apparent that Uralla were more experienced and the Missiles have few players that had played before this season. Next week at home they take on Glen Innes with a full squad and this will make a difference.

Anyone thinking about coming along next Saturday is encouraged to get there for the Missile’s game as they are not only having fun, but also playing some good footie.
