Roosters dominate Storm in Round 11

A flood of tries and a solid defensive line worked in the Atherton Roosters Women's side’s favour on Saturday morning, when they dominated over Edmonton Storm, 40-10.

Leading 22-6 at the break, the ladies were on their best game against the Storm, with hooker Kimberley Bryant and halfback captain Teesha Potts putting on their best performances to help the team secure the win. 

Bryant scored three of seven tries, while Potts put on a strong performance in the middle, and Aleysha Genge converted four for her side. 

Coach Paul Stephens was very impressed with every player's efforts and hoped they would keep it up as they head into the last leg of the FNQRL Women’s season. 

“Our defence was really good, and even though Edmonton had their fair share of the ball, we held them back,” he said. 

“We took our chances and were 22-6 by halftime. We were completing sets, and we were in a good territory.”

The ladies are currently second on the FNQRL ladder, with a six-point buffer between them and third-place holder Yarrabah Sea Hawks. 

The Roosters will go up against Edmonton again on 22 June at Petersen Park.
