Cowboys farewell Thurston in style

It’s the wooden spoon battle nobody saw coming. Both sides were tipped for big things in 2018 but it’s gone the opposite way.

The scoring opened for the night through the Cowboys with a Thurston Penalty Goal but off the kick off they went the length and scored off the same set through Ben Hampton. Thurston converted to give the Cowboys a quick 8-0 lead

The Cowboys rolled up through the Eels forwards and Hampton went over again in the 8th minute. Thurston converts for a Cowboys 14-0 lead.

In the 19th minute Matt Scott steamrolled Tepai Moeroa and he was sent for a HIA.

The next play Jake Clifford has his hand in a try when he kicked to the corner and Feldt flew up and took the ball and scored. Thurston converted from the corner and Cowboys lead 20-0.

A couple minutes later Kyle Feldt went in for a miraculous Try in the corner and Thurston had the ball on a string converting from the sideline. Cowboys 26-0.

The Cowboys kept chipping away at the Eels defensive line and they cracked them again down the side without Gideon Gela-Mosby scoring a try. Thurston converted and Cowboys had a 32-0 lead.

Cowboys head into the halftime break with an impressive 32-0 lead.

The second half started with Kyle Feldt getting his 3rd Try off a Jake Clifford kick. Thurston converted from the sideline again Cowboys lead 38-0.

Gavin Cooper went over after Brad Takairangi was sin binned. Thurston converted and Cowboys lead 44-0.

The Eels were finally on the board with a try to Michael Jennings off a nice play down the Cowboys edge. Moses converted and Cowboys lead 44-6.

Cowboys sent Thurston home a winner over Eels in his last home game of his career.
