Reserves miss while U/18s hit
WHILE celebrations continue for the A-grade Devils, Reserve grade was left to contemplate what could have been following an away clash against the Noosa Pirates at the weekend.
The Gympie reserves lost their encounter 24-22, blowing a slim lead at half-time.
Coach Greg Rendell said the team was disappointment with the loss.
“We bombed at least three tries and blew a few chances,” he said.
“A small positive for us is that the match was within our reach, so that is something we have take away from the game.”
The result could have been different five minutes out from full-time when the Gympie side opted to go for a try instead of kicking for goal to level the score.
Meanwhile, the Devils under-18 side enjoyed a solid first hit-out for the season, toppling its Noosa counterparts 24-10.
