Last Sunday, Molong Hockey Club took an under 11 representative team to Moorebank. The girls have been training on a Sunday morning for the past 6 weeks in preparation for this carnival. The girls got off to a slow start going down in their first game against Met South West White 2-0. They then regrouped and won against Sydney South 2-0. The third game could have been a high scoring game however the girls couldn't seem to get the ball into the goal with the final score 0-0. The girls found something special in their fourth and fifth games. Maybe it was the thought of the everyone getting a Sundae if they were able to score a total of 6 goals in their remaining two games. Game four saw a win against North Sydney Beaches 3-0.
The Sundaes were looking promising. Game five, 3-0 win against Southern Highlands. The Sundaes were theirs! Thanks for the motivation Jenny Olsson. Winning their final game cemented Runners Up in Division Two for the day. Congratulations to the MHC under 11 rep team!

RUGBY UNION Mervyn Magpie
Despite the bigger scoreline of 52-15, the Magpies win over Yeoval was a much more physical game than their previous win over Canowindra. Yeoval started the game strongly and were unlucky not to score in the first fifteen minutes. They missed a penalty attempt and consistently pressured the Molong line, but to no avail. On the back of two penalties and a strong Blake Hutchinson run, Molong were first to score. The Magpies scored another three tries in the remainder of the half, with these being split by one to
the home team. The best of these was to prop Darcy Garlick following slick support play by most of the backline. Stuart Hobbs and Woody Mann being the scorers of the other two. With half Mitch Brown kicking three from four Molong went into halftime with a 26-5 lead. The second half was almost identical for the visitors, with another four tries, again three of which were converted, to take their tally to 52. Continued page 14
