Enngonia and Bourke secured their first wins of the 2013 Barwon Darling Cup competition over the weekend which means five clubs from six have tasted competition victory after just two rounds.
The Outlaws defeated Newtown 30-8 at Enngonia Sportsground yesterday, while Bourke was clinical in its 60-nil demolition of Brewarrina at Geoff New Fields, Brewarrina on Saturday.
Meanwhile, last year’s runners-up Walgett stand alone as the only undefeated side in the BDRL after a strong victory against Goodooga at Walgett on Saturday.
While an official score has not been received yet the Dragons were runaway victors and it’s believed the final margin was 64-8.
That result puts Walgett in the outright lead on four competition points with Bourke, Enngonia, Newtown and Goodooga all having one win each. Brewarrina remains the only winless club.
Enngonia sizzled at home to beat the Newtown Wanderers from Walgett in a clash of the Barwon Darling Cup’s newcomers.
At Walgett, Goodooga back-rower and vice-president Kevin Hooper said the Magpies tried hard but Walgett capitalised on Goodooga mistakes to run away with a good win.
Walgett’s resident Facebook sports reporter Richard Walford pointed to Dragons’ speedy backs Louis Murphy and Kevin Murray being damaging out wide on the back of experienced forwards Richard Dennis and Charley Kennedy’s hard work in the middle.
The junior games in Walgett saw the Dragons’ under-14s make it two from two with a 52-6 win against a young Collarenebri while the Bulldogs hit back in the under-17s with a 48-34 win against Walgett.
Dale Jones got the three points off coach Jason Horan for Walgett’s under-14s and bagged a double alongside frequent try-scorer Cohen Fernando while Tony Scott (two points) and Jermaine Sands (one point) also did well for the Dragons.
Collarenebri coach Chris Kirkland was delighted with Zac Flick and Will Simmonds, two youngsters playing their first BDRL game for the Bulldogs while Kyran Walford and Jeffrey Flick also went well in the 14s.
Jeffrey Wright, Lachlan Paters, Shaquille Peters and Peter Adams were Collarenebri’s best in the 17s.
At Brewarrina on Saturday, Bourke had a great day with wins in all grades on the road. Before the big boys ran on, the Warriors won 28-16 in the under 14s. The two sides produced a thriller in the under-17s, Bourke scraping home 28-26
