Capras finish season in style against Valkyries

Central Queensland Capras finished their season with a convincing win at home, defeating the Valkyries 56-6 at Browne Parke this afternoon.

The Valkyries came into their final match of the season desperate to record their first win, however, it was the Capras who made the most of the sunny conditions on their home turf.

In a strong display, Chelsea Baker and Bree Spreadborough nabbed first half doubles on their right edge.

The Capras exposed the Valkyries on both edges, thanks to a combination of hard running and slick passing, which saw them race out to a 34-0 lead at half-time.

The Rockhampton-based outfit dominated field position for a majority of the match, with some strong running from the likes of Kailah Rogers putting them on the front foot and allowing space out wide for star half Baker who finished with a hat-trick of tries for the match.

As they’ve done all season, the Valkyries continued to stay in the fight and were rewarded for their efforts when Tahina Booth showed great determination to shrug off a number of defenders to score their first and only try for the afternoon in the 47th minute.

The joy was short-lived for the Valkyries however, as the Capras continued to pile on the points in the second half to round out a dominant performance.

Capras head coach Amanda Ohl said the performance was one her side certainly deserved after putting in the effort all season and credited the work of her forwards who worked tirelessly all afternoon.

“It’s a relief not only for myself, but for the girls, they deserved better than the results we’d been putting on the board,” Ohl said.

“At half-time I told them to enjoy the fun, but forget about it when we go back out, like the old saying goes its zero-zero again, so refocus and earn the right to play footy again,

“I thought Sharni Upton was outstanding, her defence was second to none, but all of our front rowers were fantastic today, they really did set the platform for us to go wide and score points.”
