2019 SEASON – WEEK 12

UNSW Raiders clinched the top spot on the ladder and are one game away from claiming minor premiers with a gutsy 29-6 win over the number two team UTS Gators. QB Tanner Young (#15) said after the game, “It was a good effort and good team win. We scored when we needed to, and Defence played well. Looking forward to growing from this experience.” Tanner ran for one TD and threw for 3 TDs hitting Austin Karr (#24) in the corner for all of them. “I thought we executed well on both sides of the ball.” said Austin. “Defensive line played a great game and was physical up front. Offensively we made some great plays but we made too many mistakes. Luckily we have a couple of weeks to work on it.” The UNSW Raiders have a bye next week before their final game of the season against the Pirates. Meanwhile the Raiders Women’s team were scheduled to play the Central Coast women’s team but unfortunately the Sharks couldn’t field a team and had to forfeit. The Colts enjoyed the bye weekend off.
