Toronto Pick Up Tight Win Against Resilient Halifax


Toronto pick up their first win of the Qualifiers on Sunday afternoon, Halifax holding their own and keeping the Wolfpack to just 14 points as they ran out 14-0 winners.

Toronto would pile the pressure on the Halifax line early, Josh McCrone floating a kick across through the air across the Fax line, Saltonstall claiming the kick but forced behind his own line, Toronto trying the same again on the next set but only able to come up with a knock on, Halifax surviving the early barrage.

The Wolfpack looked to have opened the scoring in the 10th minute, a kick taking a fortuitous bounce and landing in the hands of a Toronto man, denied only by a Shane Grady tackle, dislodging the ball and winning possession back.

On the verge of halftime the Halifax line would finally give, Toronto getting themselves to within a metre or so of the line, Andy Ackers then forcing his way over from dummy half to open the scoring, Gareth O'Brien converting to send Toronto in at the half 6-0 up.

Halifax were slowly but surely getting back into the game, firstly a Scott Murrell 40/20 and just minutes later a goal line drop out after Ben Johnston's grubber had to be knocked dead by a Toronto man. Halifax unable to cross, denied by stubborn defence as Murrell and Grady both went close.

A penalty would bring Toronto's next points on the hour mark, Gareth O'Brien dispatching with ease to extend Toronto's lead out to 8-0.

Toronto would see the game out with 3 minutes left to play, Andrew Dixon breaking the Halifax defensive line to score and seal the game for the Wolfpack, Gareth O'Brien going 3 for 3 off the boot as Toronto took a 14-0 win in a relatively uneventful game.
