The Guyra Junior Super Spuds and supporters put in a cold freezing windy day on Saturday, July 6th at the Sporting Complex where they took on Ashford. Guyra had a great day winning all games except the Senior League Tag. The cold weather in Guyra does have some advantages, with the canteen having a great day with lots of hot food and drinks sold. It was one of the best takings for the year.
The Under 8s put on a brave face in the cold winds and took to the field with energy galore. This team knows how to tackle and they showed Ashford their great skills. Max Lockyer surprised himself this game with a great tackle putting the opposition over the sideline. Archie Foster is leading the try-scoring in the under 8s and gives his all each game. Teo Star and Ryan Vidler played well in both attack and defence.
The Under 10s is one of the biggest under 10 teams Guyra has ever had. Everyone had a great game against Ashford winning 50 to 6. Tyler Cameron showed some great skills on the field while making sure the spectators were watching on. Hayden Bezzant is building on his skills each week always making meters for his team. Will Hutton and Liam Hutton are playing good footy and always give it their all.
The undefeated Under 12s are getting stronger every week. The boys played well in the first half passing the ball and giving everyone on the team a run. The score at half time was 32 to nil and the game was called over. In the second half, a couple of the Guyra boys put on an Ashford jersey and had fun tackling some of their own players. Shakel Irving-Frost got a try on the day. Ethan Tribe gave up a trip to the Gold Coast to play footy and he did a great job in attack also getting his first try of the season. This team is looking good for the finals.
The Under 14s won by forfeit but they still took to the field in a short friendly game of footy with some Ashford players. This was a fun game to watch with Guyra boys chasing and tackling each other with big smiles on their faces. The boys showed great sportsmanship and what fun can be had. The under 14s team ae looking good for the finals. Keep up the commitment to training and the results will pay off.
The Junior League Tag team also won by a forfeit. The young ladies took to the field in a friendly game with some Ashford players. All the players on this side are improving every week with their skills. The girls are passing and running the ball so well. Brooke Clarke played her heart out and scored a try and kicked a goal. Oakley Brazier has gained lots of confidence and is playing good footy. Kayden Mulligan also got a beauty of a try sneaking through the defence. Keep up the good work girls.
The Intermediate League Tag team were winners over Ashford 42 to 4. The girls are playing really well as a team. Lorissa Wilson ran the ball strong, making good meters. Lucy Ward is always ready in attach and defence. Olivia Wilson is enjoying her footy and is always keen to take the field.
The Senior League Tag girls take to the field each week with a smile on their faces. They are playing really well but were unlucky and beaten by a strong Ashford team. The girls need to work on their defensive line but this will come with practice. The girls trained with the under 1’s team before the holidays and were put through their paces. Lots of fitness and ball work with not many breaks. The girls finished the training exhausted but could not stop talking about how good it was.
The Junior Spuds season is coming to end quickly with only two games to go. Guyra travel to Bingara on Saturday, July 27th. We hope to see all our supporters there.
