Lack of ball control results in loss

A LACK of ball control plagued the Atherton Roosters women’s team on the weekend, who went down 28-12 against Ivanhoes on Saturday night.

The Atherton team struggled to keep their hands on the ball, allowing the Ivanhoes Maidens to secure an easy win. 

Coach Paul Stephens said despite the loss, it was an entertaining game to watch and a good learning opportunity for his team heading into the second half of the season. 

“Ball security was our main issue, but our defence was really good, and we could have lost by a lot more if we didn’t have that,” he said. 

“We will definitely take a lot out of this game, especially when it comes to our game plan and how to stick it out when the plan goes wrong.

“The girls are disappointed, but you can’t win every game and they had fun playing in front of a huge crowd after the A Grade game.”

This Saturday the ladies will go up against the Kangaroos at home from 1.30pm.
