USA have opened their second match of their tour in Australia in far more convincing style than their opening clash, going down to Goulburn 42 ? 10 last night. In steamy conditions the Americans looked a far more composed side than in their first clash, however still made the simple mistakes which resulted in them being 14 ? 0 down at half time, despite having most of the possession and the territory.
USA were still in the match, especially when the rain started coming down again, slowing the Goulburn attack, however again a handful of defensive lapses, plus the inability for the Americans to have patience on the try line to convert the territory into points.
The Tomahawks eventually got on the board in the final 10 minutes of the match, going to the air through Connecticut?s Mike Mulvihill, who put the ball out on the wing, for Jade Porter to collect the loose ball and score.
USA crossed again with just 30 seconds to go to add some respectability to their scoreline, playing possibly their best move of the day, sending the ball across the forwards before cutting back in with a lurking back just near the posts.
More information on scorers will be made available as soon as possible.
USA?s next game is down at Seiffert Oval in Queanbeyan on Saturday February 14, kick off at 6:00pm.
