Brahmans go down by one point
THERE was more heartache for the Proserpine Brahmans at home this weekend, going down 29-28 to Sarina in a heartbreaking loss at Les Stagg Oval.
In slippery conditions the Brahmans fought gallantly in front of their home crowd but fell just short of producing their first win of the season.
Saturday's loss was the club's seventh straight for the 2012 season and they need to turn things around quickly with only nine games remaining.
A slow start again cost the Brahmans but they did well to fight their way back into the contest.
The team take on fellow cellar-dwellers Wests this weekend, where they will be boosted by former NRL player Darren Mapp who is set to make his debut with the Brahmans on Saturday.
Sarina and Proserpine couldn't be separated in reserve grade, with an 18-18 draw the final result on Saturday.
After injuries and ill-discipline reduced the team to eleven players, the Brahmans did well to hang in there and share the points with the Crocs.
The reserves will be confident of a better result this weekend when they take on the last-placed Wests in Walkerston on Saturday.
The under-18s Brahmans posted their third win of the season with a hard-fought 26-20 win over Sarina.
Both teams traded tries early in the game but it was the Brahmans who had the last laugh as they pulled away for a six-point win. A place in the competiton's top four will be on the line this weekend when the Brahmans take on the fourth-placed Wests at Tiger Park on Saturday.
