Saints Women's team had a strong come back

Harvesters came out strong against the
Saints women's team on Saturday against
Waterford High school. The team managed
to push through the Saints defensive
line, scoring a try early in the game.
Although the ladies fought back, running
the ball deep into the Harvesters' 22,
the Saints lost possession, leading to a
second try from Norfolk.
After some reassessing, the Saints
picked up their game, running the ball
hard down the field and out wide to
Daria Keane, who stiff-armed her way
through the Norfolk defense to score the
Saints' first try of the game. Keane's
try proved to be the boost the women
needed, as teammate Lauren Wilks
followed suit with the team's second
try, followed by another 5 points from
Keane. The second half was up and down
for both teams, but the Saints dug deep
and secured the win with two tries from
Carleigh LaLonge and another try by
Mandy Milliquet, after the Harvesters
third and final try of the game.
Oleniuk completed 4 conversion kicks,
adding 8 points to the score board.
Oleniuk was also named player of the
game for the Saints.
