Junior Brahmans beaten by Magpies
THE Proserpine under-11 Brahmans hosted Magpies Black on Saturday and it was the visitors that came away with an 18-12 win.
Magpies were first to score before Byron Muller crashed under the posts to score the Brahmans first try.
Midway through the first half Hone Bloomer and Jack Dray linked up with Max Bernett for another try but Magpies were able to score again after swooping on a loose ball.
Calvin Thompson and Riley Scanlon also had great games running a quality ball from Jesse Gatton but were unable to apply any more pressure before the half time break.
It was bad news from the kick-off as the Magpie number six cut through some lacklustre Brahman defence to put them two points behind.
The home side were not able to convert good field position into points and the Magpies defence forced another turnover which led to a try.
Joe Wilson, Jayden Lane, Michael Gordon and Jack Handley all tried hard but were unable to breach the opposition line as the visitors kept the Brahmans scoreless in the second half for the first time this season.
Coach Paul said the boys played well enough to win the game but handling errors and poor defence proved quite costly in the end.
