Ladies league loses against Tenterfield
THE Stanthorpe/Texas ladies league team faced another defeat over the weekend in their game against Tenterfield, with a 56–0 loss.
With new girls joining the team this year, coach Paul Shatte said they were still learning and were no match for Tenterfield.
“This year we’ve got a lot of girls who it’s their first year of league tag so they’re still learning,” he said.
“They were just too fast for us really.”
Shatte was still happy with the way the team played.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do but having said that, the girls seem to enjoy it and they’re learning and we’ve got good numbers,” he said.
Having too many numbers making up the team may be a downfall, Shatte said.
“We’ve got good numbers and that may be a part of the problem too because we’re trying to give everyone a fair amount of time on the field.”
The girls will now be back training before the game next week to improve their skills.
“Defence work, just trying to tighten up, especially in the middle,” Shatte said.
The team will go up against Pittsworth on Saturday at Sullivan Oval.
“We’re hoping that this week at home we can turn things around,” Shatte said.
