The Pink Panthers continued on their winning ways with a solid performance against the gallant Binnaway Bombshells in round 14 of the Christie and Hood Castlereagh League competition played in front of a healthy crowd at McGrane Oval on Saturday.

With the pressure on all teams in the competition as we move to the pointy end of the season, another win was vital for the Pinkies and they showed their intentions early when Emily Fardell crossed out wide in the opening minutes. Binnaway replied soon after with a try to Jesse Newton to even up the score at 4-4.

The first 20-minutes was a struggle for both teams but with five minutes remaining, Rani Diggs scored off a planned move. Shian Chatfield converted from wide out to make it 10-4 and with only one minute remaining on the clock, Mab Fuller broke the hearts of the Bombers when she intercepted a wayward pass and race 90-metres to score under the posts for the Pinkies.

Chatfield gave the Pinkies a 16-4 lead with her conversion and the Pinkies went to oranges in control.

They continued on from their great first half display in the second stanza and the tries came at regular intervals with captain-coach, Kylie Louie crossing for a great individual try in the opening minutes, followed by Shian and Mab Fuller crossing for her second try.

Kiara Brown finished off a great backline movement to score in the corner and when the final hooter sounded the Pinkies were in front 36-4.

 It was a great team effort from the Pinkies and along with the first grade team, they have a bye this Saturday and the following week the face off with the high-flying Narromine Jets in what will be huge tests for both sides.
