Devil of a match for Reserves
NAROOMA Devils Reserves took on the Eden Tigers on Saturday Afternoon.
The Narooma lads where excited about the clash and had a great week at training leading into the game. The Devils were boosted by the return of Troy Beacham to the team and with plenty of numbers at training we were ready for the game.
The Eden Tigers had a flying start to the game and scored three tries in the first 15 minutes the Devils had no ball and did it tough having to make over 60 tackles at the start.
The game then settled down and we got right into it, with Marty and Shaun leading the boys around and the forwards getting stuck into some great defensive work.
As the game progressed all of the Devils had a really hot go, Franco, Ryan and Mitch working well on one side and Elijah, Steve and Toby on the other.
With the injection of Beach into the back line the boys had started there comeback and after being so far behind looked like real contenders.
The boys in the middle played out of their skins, Max, Daniel, Aaron, Ben and Steve made a huge amount of ground up the centre giving our backs plenty of room to spread the ball out wide.
The Devils won the second half 20 points to 10 but it wasn’t quite enough to get us over the line with Eden tiring and the Devils storming home all we needed was an extra few minutes but the time clock beat us and the Devils went down 36 to 26.
It was a great come back from the boys but just wasn’t meant to be!
A win is just around the corner.
Best on the ground for the Devils were 3 Points Max Carter, 2 Points Daniel Alderton and the 1 point to Troy Beacham
We play Tathra away next week and I’m sure the result will be different.
See you all at training, Coach Jase!
