Innisfail Leprechauns’ teams have clean sweep against Southern Suburbs

The season has wrapped up for the Innisfail Leprechauns’ Open Women’s team after being defeated in the first semi-final by Edmonton Storm.

INNISFAIL Leprechauns A-grade side travelled to Alley Park to face Southern Suburbs last Sunday in Gordonvale.

The visitors took an early 12 – 0 lead before the Southern Suburbs posted their first points.

It was all Innisfail in the first half, running in with three more tries to go into the half time break with a convincing 28 – 4 lead.

Southern Suburbs scored first in the second half, which were the only points for the home side.

Four more tries to Innisfail in the second half saw them reach the half century and finish with a dominant 50 – 8 victory over Southern Suburbs.

Innisfail’s try scorers were Andrew Garrett 2, Julian Christian 2, Kris 2, Daniel Mooka, Yaza Stephen, and Aaron Jolley, with Jolley also kicking 7 goals.

In the Reserve grade match, the Leprechauns went into the sheds at half time with a 10 – 6 lead.

It was a see-sawing affair in the second half, as both teams registered points which put the game in the balance, with a 22 – 18 score line.

A try to the home side had the scores locked at 22 – 22, until the extras were added, and only two points separated both teams.

Tyrese Brown scored a late second half try, which sealed the thrilling 26 – 24 victory for Innisfail.

The Leprechauns Under 18 side had a try scoring feast and registered a 56 – 8 win over Southern Suburbs.
