Day 1 wrap-up
The NT State Titles commenced last night with teams from all over the Territory making their way to Goodline Park in Palmerston, near Darwin. The Palmerston Raiders Rugby League Club ensured the fields were in immaculate condition for the event, which will see all round games held over two evenings (Thursday & Friday) in cooler conditions and Grand Finals to be played on Saturday.
Round one tapped off and saw in the Women’s open Division Inferno Magpies open their account with a convincing 6-0 win over the Titans. While the Sharks managed a tough 7-6 win over a much-fancied Rebels side from Katherine.
The Men’s Division saw a number of closely fought encounters with Alice Springs taking the win over the Inferno Magpies in what was a terrific show of speed and skill. The Rebels Men’s team from Katherine managed a 6-1 win over the Darwin Men’s side, while Sims Refrigeration put on a terrific display with a convincing win over the MacKillop Saints.
In the Senior Mixed Division, Palmerston Magpies currently sit top of the ladder, while in the Under 18s, the Inferno Magpies are the current leaders.
Games continue tonight from 6pm at Goodline Park, Palmerston. All results are available via the tournament website: http://websites.sportstg.com/assoc_page.cgi?c=14-920-0-532184-0&sID=213772
