Super League: Round 4
Woden Eagles went to battle against Canberra City Bears in last night’s thriller. Woden Eagles were unstoppable with a strong performance by the senior playing group including captain, Sophie Broadhead. Woden and City ended the game with a 4-4 draw.
Tuggeranong Vikings demonstrated why they should be favourites in 2018 with a dominant display against Gungahlin Cats winning 12-3. Vikings welcomed back touchdown-scoring machine Breanna Toze who scored a double. Rebecca Beath was having a field day linking with Elise Wilson scoring a hattrick of touchdowns.
Underdogs Gungahlin Cats started strong against the Woden Eagles, however Eagles captain Trent Gavenlock lead from the front, scoring three (3) touchdowns in a 10-6 win. The Cats fought to the end which saw a double for Steven Kennedy and Ben Davis.
The 2017 Super League Men’s Final did not disappoint. Field 9 was surrounded by a swarm of people and pets in what was an electric game with the two heavy weights going head-to-head. Tempers were high with strong defensive efforts from both teams leading to a low score line at half time. ACT representative coaches, Doug Witt (Vikings) and Steve Hughes (Phoenix) were quite calm during half time, addressing their players and praising their efforts in defence and attack. However, Phoenix #10, Isaac Crowe proved the difference with the match winning touchdown in the second half to give Phoenix a tight 4-3 win over the reigning champions
