Gremlins lose in low scorer
TO CALL it a low scoring affair would be an understatement as the Gremlins fell short of the mark against Inglewood 4-6 at the weekend.
Playing in cold, wet conditions handling errors were not uncommon and both sides found it hard to complete their sets.
Gremlins liaison officer Paul Shatte said both teams found the conditions frustrating as the reached the break level at 0-0.
"Both teams had numerous scoring opportunities but found it difficult to complete their sets leaving both coaches frustrated," Shatte said.
"The slippery conditions contributed to many of the mistakes and neither side were able to cross the line during the first half and left the field with a nil all score line."
The conditions didn't improve as the players took to the field for the second half but the visitors managed to make a break through midway through the half as Jayden Klein crossed.
Matt Gainey converted the try giving the Roosters a 6-0 lead. But the Gremlins hit back and after a successful build-up Cameron Robazza crossed to make it 4-6.
The conversion kick was missed which left Inglewood's two point lead in place with only minutes to go.
The home side pushed for the win but it was in vain.
