White Plains Wombats Win in their Home Debut

By Phil Schacter

SUNY Purchase college: White Plains Wombats had their home game season opener on Saturday June 18 against the Washington DC Slayers. 

The Wombats received the ball off the kick off and made an impression immediately through the middle. Towards the back end of the set the Wombats scored a 50 m try down the left hand side scored by Nathan Wales. From there the Wombats continued to show their dominance racking up 50 unanswered points. Shortly before half time after repeat sets the Slayers put points on the board through a try. The second half continued much the same way with some nice long distance tries through support play. The Wombats conceded a few late tries but came up big winner's against the Slayers, 90-10. Next week the Wombats travel to Boston to take on the defending champions.
