At the top of their game

The Cobar Roosterettes welcomed Lisa Travis back to the team on Saturday after she missed their last three games due to Western Rams representative duties.

The side also farewelled Natalie Barnes who played her last game for the Roosterettes on Saturday in Brewarrina before she heads to Queensland for work.

The Roosterettes marked the occasion with an emphatic 34-0 win over the young Googar team that had to date been playing well against the other teams in this year’s Barwon Darling Cup competition.

Brianna Watson opened the scoring for the Roosterettes with a weaving run that evaded the defence and Zoë Harland’s sideline conversion had them up 6-0 early in the match.

Travis picked up a loose ball to score Cobar’s second try and Harland’s conversion pushed the margin out to 12-0.

Cobar had a high completion rate with the ball as Tyler Chiswick, Bianka Jacobson and Jennifer Mitchell all made good runs for the Roosterettes that was backed up by their defence with Kasey Egan, Naomi Whitehurst and Kaitlyn Clark all grabbing good tags.

Jacobson bagged a try for Cobar before Watson again made another good swerving run to elude the defenders and score her second try of the match and gave Barnes the easiest of conversions for Cobar to lead 22-0 at the break.

The Roosterettes continued to dominate with Mitchell, Harland and Jade Goonrey all scoring second half tries but it was all down to their defensive line that didn’t let the Googars have it easy with the ball.

Cobar’s best players were Egan, Harland and Mitchell.
