UNDER 10'S MATCH REPORT
Blayney 44 defeated CYMS Green 16.
On Saturday we played host to CYMS Green in pretty good conditions for footy.
For the first time in a long time we started strongly this week and scored three quick tries all to Mayson McPaul to lead 14-0 early.
However it wasn't long before the mistakes came and CYMS scored two tries in the last three minutes before half time to make the score 14-10 at the break.
The head coach was less than impressed with the teams first half performance and let them know all about it.
After pointing out a few areas of improvement we went out for the second half and hopefully a much better performance.
I think the only way to describe the second half is incredible. We scored straight from the kick off when Aiden Nunn got the ball and beat nearly every CYMS defender to race all the way and score.
We were in again from the kick off this time Zak Simons getting the ball and racing away to score a great solo try.
Both Aiden and Zak scored again and the blockbusting Harry Zideluns scored and is fast becoming a try scoring machine.
But it was Mayson McPaul who crossed twice in the second half to take his tally for the day to five.
It was an outstanding performance from Mayson with his strong running making him almost impossible to stop.
He was excellent in defence as well in what was by far his best game of the year. Zak Simons was back to his best with two tries and also strong in defence and Aiden Nunn continues to shine in the half back role.
He also bagged a double. Lochie Little was brilliant from fullback with safe hands strong running and great defence capping a great game. All in all the second half was superb but we really need to start our games the same way we are finishing them.
The entire team should give themselves a big pat on the back for a great performance. This week we travel to Bathurst to take on the strong St. Pats side but if we listen to the coaching staff and start believing in ourselves we will play well.
UNDER 12'S MATCH REPORT
The Under 12's bounced back with an enthusiastic victory over Oberon on Saturday.
The boys played some good attacking footy throughout and defended well against a side that tried to get on the outside with speed.
Try scorers for Blayney were Logan Claypole who produced some excellent runs, Joey Hobby who was heavily involved, Morgan Fuller who also produced some very clever skill play to set up Liam Henry's try and Nick Tilburg who crossed twice through some some smart decision making.
Brad Baker had an outstanding game at fullback and he also crossed for a try from a very determined effort.
Pat Duggan amongst others was also very good in taking the side forward.
Overall it was a very pleasing team effort with the boys turning up ready to play.
On the whole well done to the team with all players showing a good level of determination throughout this match. The team will once again need to use this enthusiasm when travelling to Mudgee as they look for a good result.
UNDER 16'S MATCH REPORT
The Blayney Under 16's won a nail biter on the weekend against second place Bathurst St Pats.
In an exciting game full of tries and great tackling and attacking play Blayney ran out winners 19-18.
Blayney dominated the first half scoring three tries to one outplaying St Pats. The second half turned around and with an ankle injury to the tackling machine Brandon Hahn Pats managed to score three tries out wide .
With Blayney scoring our only try of the second half the game was all tied up at 18 all.
With two minutes on the clock and fifth tackle on Blayney, Casey Wallace nicely slotted a field goal from 20 meters out. in a long two minutes the Bears held out St Pats to to win 19 to 18 and stay on top of the table.
With boys getting out of their sick beds and injuries Blayney fought hard for this win.
Ryan Simmons played his best game of the season in my eyes on Saturday - Well done Ryan.
