More heartache for Brahmans
THE Proserpine Brahmans have fallen in their sixth straight loss of the 2012 campaign after getting beaten by the Magpies at home on Saturday night.
In front of a vocal home crowd the Brahmans did well to fight their way back into the contest after trailing by 16-0 late in the first half.
Crucial errors cost the Brahmans dearly and they were unable to chase down the fast finishing Magpies at Les Stagg Oval.
Sitting on the bottom of the ladder with zero wins from six starts, the team is doing their best to stay positive and will be desperate to record their first win of the season against Sarina at home this Saturday.
Despite leading for the majority of the game the Brahmans went down to Magpies 34-22 on Saturday.
Leading 22-16 with only seven minutes to go the Brahmans looked set for their second win of the year but a late flurry from the visitors saw them steal a win.
Coach Paul Maxwell rued his team's late-game collapse saying that they had squandered the game through silly penalties and errors."They put on three tries in the last seven minutes and it was disappointing that we let them back into the game," he said.
Brent Frankie, Dan Welsh, Michael Leo, Bryce Fraser and Hugh Middleton were the Brahmans best players on the day.
The under-18 Brahmans also went down to the Magpies despite racing to an 18-4 lead in the first half.
After suffering some injuries in the second half the Brahmans fought hard to protect their lead but were eventually run down 22-18.
Alex Richards, Jake Berkers and James Cootes were singled out by Coach Damien Bermingham as his team's standout performers.
The Lady Brahmans put in their best performance to date this season as they were narrowly beaten by the Magpies on Saturday.
The final score line read 30-20 with the team putting points on the board for the first time this season after being held to zero in their two previous games.
Coach Zach Hoffman noticed a big improvement in his team and said he was looking forward to their next game against Wests in two weeks time.
