The Mendi Blackhawks defeated the Pride 32-10 at Jack Manski Oval on Saturday evening, and claiming the Foley Shield for 2017.
The Pride tested the Blackhawks defence for the first 13 minutes of the game, which included back to back sets and 2 line drop outs.
But it was Jordan Drew who was the first to score for the Blackhawks, after a long pass from Kyle Laybutt landed him in the corner.
Carlin Anderson converted the try making this was the only points scored in the first half.
The second half didn’t start great for the Blackhawks kicking it out on the full. The Pride pounced on the opportunity scoring in the next set making the score 6-4.
Hard working Temone Power was next to score for the home team after a quick pass from Sione Lousi.
The away team once again struck back soon after, keeping them in contention and making the score 12-10 with just under 30 minutes remaining.
Carlin Anderson scored a solo try, which was soon followed by Kyle Laybutt kicking for himself and diving on the ball just before it hit the dead ball line.
Kierran Moseley and Jordan Kenworthy both scored late tries for the Blackhawks taking the win out of reach for the Pride.
A highlight for the game was the foot race between flying wingers Jonathan Reuben and Gideon Gela-Mosby which eventually saw Reuben making the tackle, after Gela-Mosby took an intercept close to his teams try line.
The win saw the Blackhawks remain in 5th position on the Intrust Super Cup ladder and win the Foley Shield for 2017.
The next game for the Townsville Blackhawks will see them travel to Winton to take on the Ipswich Jets this Saturday.
