Cowra captain Chris Miller has breathed a mammoth sigh of relief after the Eagles beat Orange City20-12 to keep its finals hopes alive.

Played at the Cowra Rugby Grounds on Saturday, Cowra recovered from a 12-6 halftime deficit byposting the only points of a compelling second period, in front of a vocal Eagles’ Old Boys crowd.

The game lacked fluency due to some undiscipline play with both sides struggling to win itsrespective scrums and lineouts.

Miller attributed his sides win to it’s never say die attitude.

“The stop and start suited us because they have some quick outside backs and we used it to ourforwards’ strength.

“Because we stuck in the whole game we knew we could win it, that played a big part in ourmindset to win the game… we believed in ourselves.”

Early penalty goals gave the hosts an early 6-0 lead before back to back tries to Joe Lasagavibau firedCity to at 12-6 lead, with Duncan Young converting one of two chances.

The Lions forced two turnovers on its own try line and repelled the Eagles again in the closing stagesto remain in front at the break.

Momentum then swung in Cowra’s favour but the Eagles couldn’t convert pressure into points asthe visitors’ defence held firm.

City’s number 6 Feleti Wolfgramm received a yellow card at the hour mark but it didn’t stop his sidefrom maintaining its lead.

The Lions’ Young missed two penalty goal opportunities to pull further ahead before its defencebroke during the game’s final quarter.

The first of Cowra’s tries came after an inspired kick chase from winger Tom Dewhurst and fullbackJohn Grant resulted in City losing possession inside its own 22m.

After several phases Jimmy Montgomery darted across from the ruck and Alex Webster gave Cowraa 13-12 lead.

The win was sealed soon after when Montgomery’s brother Jeremy scored similarly at the other sideof the posts and Webster’s radar was again accurate.

City coach Steve Hamson said his side looked the better in the first half before surrendering its sixpoint advantage in the second 40 minutes.

“The critical thing was our decision making at the break down we gave away too manypenalties and invited the referee into the game,” Steve Hamson said before talking about his side’sfinal two regular round games against Dubbo Roos and Orange Emus.

“You wouldn’t budget winning either of those.”

Cowra’s skipper Miller said the win gives his side hope.

“If we’re lucky enough to get in the semifinals we know anything can happen from there.”

Cowra 20 (Jimmy Montgomery, Jeremy Montgomery tries; Alex Webster 2 conversions, 2 penaltygoals) defeated Orange City 12 (Joe Lasagavibau 2 tries; Duncan Young conversion.)
