Match Report for

Beantown (1st) vs. Albany Women (1st)
22 October 2016

Location: No location provided

Beantown: 27    Albany Women: 0

A cool breezy fall day at Moakley on a muddy grass pitch. This was a close game for half the match. Beantown scored a try in the first 10 minutes and initially looked like they would run away with the game but a number of handling errors penalties kept Albany in the game. The wet conditions were also a leveler, particularly the rain in the second half. However, Albany struggled to convert possession into points and made their own share of errors. In the second half Beantown finally stretched to a comfortable lead. The penalty count was high early on in the game but both teams responded to discussion and the penalty count reduced significantly. Key issues were gate entry and off side at the ruck.

Referee: Nick Eldred
