Last night seen the 1st grade team take a step closer to back to back titles with a win over the Dapto canaries. The boys started out a bit slow in the first half with the canaries taking a 12 nil lead half way through the half. The Butchers hit back right on half time to go in to the break 12-6 down. The second half a different Butchers team took the field and racked up 28 unanswered points before they switched off allowing the Dapto team to score a few late tries. Final score was Butcher 34 defeating Dapto 24. Unfortunately our U19’s team bow out of the competition with a 28 to 16 loss to Corrimal.
Full report will be in Mondays Illawarra Mercury.
