Miriam Vale Magpies fly high in hard fought game

IT was a "typical clash" between the Agnes Water Marlins and the Miriam Vale Magpies which could have gone either way.

But Magpies managed to pull through in the second half with a 36-22 win in the hard-fought game at Gary Larson Oval on the weekend.

Assistant Marlins coach Bob Cooper said it was a tough match but all the boys put in a solid effort.

"It could have gone either way" he said. "Our boys played really well, no mistakes, they stuck to the structure.

"The score doesn't reflect the game."

At half-time, the Marlins were up 10-6.

The Magpies swooped in during the second half, capitalising on a few lucky penalties and "they ran away with it in the end", Cooper said.

"It was your typical clash with Miriam Vale."

Despite the loss, Cooper remained positive and believed his team's performance on the field showed promise for the remainder of the season.

"It was a solid team effort," he said. "Everyone pitched in. It was good to see."

Cooper said there were too many key players to name and he was incredibly proud of his boys.

"They did the best they could, that's for sure."
