In a second-half blitz the ALLSTARS outran Fyre to notch their second win of the season last Thursday night.

ALLSTARS were quick to get on the scoreboard with a try from James Matthews in the opening minutes.

Although ALLSTARS threatened to break away, Fyre managed to shut them down as Liam Bedford broke through to level the score.

After a stalemate, the teams were soon matching each other try for try with Zak Austin, Alex Valli and Bedford scoring for their respective teams.

A third try from Bedford gave Fyre a two-point advantage until a late try from ALLSTARS’ Valli had the scores at 4-3 at half-time.

In the second half ALLSTARS came back with a vengeance when Emile Boxer was incredibly quick to level the score once again.

It seemed the quick try gave ALLSTARS a new pep in their step as Boxer, Megan O’Connor and Valli continued sprinting down the field and handing their team the lead.

Despite Fyre’s best efforts and the likes of Bedford and Sophie Moore scoring additional tries, they struggled to convert against the hyped-up ALLSTARS.

A last-gasp try from Shannon O’Connor sealed the deal for ALLSTARS, who claimed the 11-6 victory.
