THE Scone Thoroughbreds captured their third consecutive A-Plus Contracting Hunter Valley Group 21 women’s league tag crown after accounting for Greta Branxton 16-0 at Olympic Park, Muswellbrook, on Sunday.
The defending premiers held a narrow 6-0 lead at the break, courtesy of a try to Maddy Adams and a Charmaine Bloomfield conversion.
And, despite a gutsy effort from the Greta Branxton girls, Scone went on with the job in the second half.
When Adams posted try number two, the Thoroughbred led 10-0.
Then, to put the icing on the cake, captain Sofie Casson touched down between the uprights in the dying minutes. Bloomfield added the extras for a 16-0 scoreline.
Not surprisingly, the player of the match was Adams.
