THE men’s premier league touch football competition leaders endured the fastest-moving game of the season against the MJR Electrics on Tuesday night.
MJR Electrics drew first blood, scoring an early try, but it wasn’t long before the undefeated Cobras took control, winning 6-3.
They pushed through fatigue for a well-earned win according to Cobras captain Chris Dowell.
“Started off flat out, a really fast game, I think that’s been our fastest game since the start of the season,” Dowell said.
“We put in the hard yards, I think we deserved that win.”
Five of their tries were scored on the wing.
The Cobras pushed hard through the middle, and caused MJR Electrics’ wingers to draw in close, leaving the wing open, and then passing it out late in the phase to score.
Cobras’ Nathan Rose played skilfully in the centre, faking to advance the ball forward. Darren Reynoldson managed an impressive dive over an opposition player to score a try.
Senior player Brocke Argus dictated the play when MJR Electrics had the ball, and both teams rarely made a mistake.
Tight defence from the Cobras made it tough for MJR to break through and score. However, they weren’t impenetrable; Brayden Winnel scored two, Jesse Margosis scored one try.
