Short-staffed junior Knights combine teams for convincing win

The Kiama Junior Knights were back in action at Chittick Oval on Saturday, with round four of the South Coast Group Seven Junior Rugby League competition.

In the first game of the day, the Knights Under 14 Red girls league tag team took on Albion Park Oak Flats Maroon and won 24-14, before the Knights Under 14 Blacks defeated Albion Park Oak Flats White 56-4.

At midday, the Knights Under 11 ones boy's team continued their solid start to the season with a convincing 50-10 win over St Georges Basin.

With several players missing due to school holidays, reinforcements were called upon from the Under 11 twos and Under 10s.

"All players stepped up and contributed to the win, under the guidance of skipper Ally Hamilton," co-coach John Mak said.

"Standouts in attack were Jett Brookfield, Tewiremu Harris and Lucas Mak, while the Poching brothers Levii and Lacom held the middle in defence. New recruit Phoenix Johns also showed he will be a handful for any opposition.

"The team enjoyed the win and will now prepare for the local derby with Gerringong next Saturday."

Later that afternoon, the Knights Under 12 twos went down 22-18 in a tough match against Stingrays, the Under 12 ones defeated Stingrays 24-16 and the Under 12 two girls league tag team beat Albion Park Oak Flats 32-14.
