The Under 10 Bushhawks took on the Junee Diesels on a very chilly Saturday morning.
The team’s hard work on the training front paid off, with the Bushhawks coming away with only their second win for the year and they did it in style.
They were led well in attack upfront by Noah Coble and Jakob Friend – both scoring a meat pie.
Others in attack were Thomas Woodhead, who grabbed himself a try from dummy half, and the ever-dangerous Jacob Kennedy, who posed a threat whenever he ran from first receiver,
The whole team tackled well, with Jayden Steele and Thomas Woodhead leading the way.
The Hirsh twins were strong.
Delilah Cross looked dangerous with her speed and Laylah Hughston handled herself well from dummy half.
Ben Young was strong in defence and great with the ball, Jacob McKinnon was great on the wing in defence and a threat in attack setting up a try on the other side with a speedy run across field. Alex Cummins showed his presence in the middle with some strong carries and Archie Coble filled in well and didn’t let anyone down from the bench.
The young Bushhawks, after some big defeats recently, won 36-26 and really enjoyed singing the team song on the sideline - you couldn’t wipe the smile off their faces. The team is looking for a strong finish to the season but unfortunately, the momentum will be stalled as they have the bye this week.
The Under 15s Bushhawks came up against Junee last Saturday at home at Boorowa.

However, Junee wasn’t giving up. Jake Christie, James Collins, Josh Demont and Jacob Piper were all able to find the line to score a try. Bushhawks narrowly won the game 18-14. Well Done.
