Under 14's Round 2 Match Report

Bowra 14s travelled to Bello to take on the combined Nambucca / Sawtell / Bellingen team after a strong first up win the boys were full of confidence but knew they were in for a tough game .
Bowra started slowly and were down 2 tries to nil before we had really got our hands on the ball , once possession evened up we were able to put some points on the board and went into half time in front .
Some terrible handling in the second half just put our defensive line under pressure time and time again and we gifted the opposition the ball and field position , eventually going down 24 - 20 .
Tristan Mckelvie was strong in both attack and defence , Connor Lockyer was extremely safe at the back in windy conditions , outside backs Tommy Martin , Kye Garzoli and Lincoln Noble did everything that was asked of them , Lochie Mcewen hitting in defence was a highlight of the game and Joe Young was a rock in the middle of the park with several determined runs , the boys were fairly disappointed after the loss which hopefully spurs them onto a more controlled effort next week .
