Kellett field goal clinches dramatic win for Coffs Harbour Snappers

Snappers 18s score on the bell to go top of the league.

THE Coffs Harbour Snappers Under 18s snatched victory over the Port Macquarie Pirates with a field goal on the bell, securing a hard-fought 20-17 win at Bay Range Park last Saturday.

Snappers club president and Under 18s coach Jimmy de Dassel was thrilled by the performances, which bode well for the future success of the club.

“The Snappers U18s have moved to top of the table after a nail biting victory over Port Pirates on the weekend,” de Dassel said.

“With seconds left on the clock, skipper Lincoln Kellett calmly slotted a field goal to break the deadlock.

“The Snappers’ 20-17 win is reward for the hard work the players have been putting in at training.

“Kellett also scored a try along with Charlie Egan and Sam Locke-Kelly.”

The Snappers Under 16s boys continued their phenomenal season with a convincing win over the Port Macquarie Pirates, cementing their position at the top of the table.

“It was an outstanding club performance by the Snappers, winning seven from seven matches against the Pirates,” de Dassel said.

“Women’s rugby at the club keeps going from strength to strength with strong wins in the Women’s, under 14s and 16s girls.”
