Cougars remain undefeated

The Corowa Cougars hosted Wodonga Storm last Sunday in perfect play conditions, as the grounds at West Albury were too wet following a week of record rain.
 
It was then decided the Wodonga ground was the next port of call but the goal post fell over the afternoon before the match and there was no way that they could have cut them in a short amount of time, so it was on to the Corowa Cougars for the round three clash.

In a lackluster performance, the home team recovered from a slow start to stay undefeated.

The likes of Braith Murphy, Nikki Lomano, Jack Synnot, Adam Henderson and Andrew Ford tried their best for the home team.

Wodonga were the first to cross the line after some poor tackling by the Cougars which left the backline wide open - Corowa 0 to Wodonga 4.

Straight after Wodonga scored they received the ball from the kick off only to drop it and Corowa went about their way to secure a try from Braith Murphy, near the post, 6-4.

In a very interesting first half, the Cougars defence line made many mistakes but it was the experience of Adam Henderson who made sure the Cougars were on the way to victory, after he charged his way over the line to score - Corowa 12 to Wodonga 4.

Straight after the Corowa try, Wodonga’s winger came in for a run and raced away 30 metres to score and it was converted.

Following, big Anthony Murphy simply charged his way over the line to keep the Corowa team in front and the score was 16 to 10, in the black and whites favour.
That was the final score with Corowa just edging out the Wodonga Storm 16 to 10 in what was called a nail biting clash.

The Corowa Cougars would like to thank their major sponsors Billy’s Custom Spray Painting, Corowa Home Improvements, Upton Steel Supplies and minor sponsors Shalew Spraying and Ag Services, Cofield and Co Plumbing, Corowa Furnishings and Floors and Corowa Dry Cleaners  for their support.
