Match Report - Women 15/4

Coastal Women's second game of the season against Okaiawa was a hard fought game on a hot Autumn afternoon.

It was a tough battle in the forward packs between the teams.

Coastal player of the game Jaymi Ngaia was running with purpose off the scrum and making up front tackles. Coastal showed domination in the scrums, and half back Beth Cook made some try saving tackles and she showed some good decision making throughout play. Coastal were leading 12-10 at halftime, but again the lack of subs hurt Coastal with Okaiawa being able to bring on fresh legs, which was the difference.

Shinae Minhinnick on debut, had a strong first game, showing lots of promise for her future. Coastal finished the end of the 2nd half strongly, scoring 2 tries and a conversion in the last 5 minutes, but wasn't enough to get the win, going down 37-31.

At end of round 2 Leah Barnard was the top try scorer and top point scorer for the CMK Chartered Accountants Premier Women's Rugby and managed to add another try to the total against Okaiawa - keep up the great work Leah.

Coastal's next game is their first home game of the season, 22nd April at Rahotu against Inglewood @ 11.30am, come and support the Coastal ladies.
