The Second half was error ridden by both teams turning over valuable possession and ball procession. The grind was a hard tussle in the forwards with bruising hits and hit ups led by our fearless Captain Mia Tautiga and Aukuso Faafoi. Leading into the late stages of the game the Scorpions held a slim lead 20-16. We had plenty of chances to cross the line but poor ball control letting us down. Otara scored a late try with five minutes to go closing out the game 24-16.
Player of the Day goes to our captain Mia Tautiga who led from the front, Josh Mana who provided much needed direction and Toleafoa Leaupepe who has week after week charged through defence lines. Well done!
Heads up DOGGIES next week we go again this time against Mangere East out at Walter Massey Park, 2.30pm kick off. We hope to see you all out there as we look to travel out South Auckland in hope that we will come back with two points.
