New South Wales leave it late in women’s open

first_imgBy BEN HARRISNew South Wales led only once in the first game of the women’s open and it was at the time when it counted the most.The women in blue got some revenge from their 2012 series defeat when they defeated Queensland 6-5 at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Friday night.The two sides were never far away from each other, in fact you would have thought they were identical in many aspects.Only a touchdown separated the pair throughout the entire match.Queensland had a chance to send the match into drop-off when New South Wales player Kristen Boss found herself forced-subbed, and with a one woman advantage for the final 10 seconds, Queensland could not score the much-needed touchdown.It was a thrilling end to an entertaining match.It took seven minutes for the first touchdown to be scored, which came courtesy of Savannah Pratten for Queensland.New South Wales captain Louise Winchester showed her experience when she darted through a gap to even the scores a short time later.Queensland took a 2-1 lead into half-time when Kate McCarthy scored.While it was tight in the first half, both teams broke free of their shackles in the second half as they went touchdown for touchdown.Four touchdowns had been scored in as many minutes.Another two touchdowns for both teams and Queensland held a 5-4 lead with 10 minutes to go.Both teams were good in attack but even better in defence as any touchdown-scoring opportunity was foiled by some desperate touches on the line.But two long balls by New South Wales led to touchdowns.The first was thrown by Danielle Davis to Samantha Rodgers.The second was a superb right-to-left pass by Jessica McCall to Elisabeth Hewitt, which put New South Wales into the lead for the first time.It proved to be decisive as New South Wales held on for the win.NEW SOUTH WALES 6 (Samantha Rodgers 2, Louise Winchester 2, Yasmin Meakes, Elisabeth Hewitt touchdowns) def QUEENSLAND 5 (Savannah Pratten, Brooke Walker, Shenae Ciesiolka, Kim Sue See, Kate McCarthy touchdowns).
