Revenge for the Magpies



LOWER Clarence gained revenge for its early-season Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League loss to the Grafton Ghosts with a 36-20 victory at Frank McGuren Field on Friday night.

Magpie pivot Adam Elliott enjoyed the first game of senior football under lights at the ground scoring three tries and kicking four goals for 20 points in the game.

Lower raced away to a 26-nil lead at half-time and only two late Ghosts' tries added respectability to the score.

LOWER CLARENCE 36 (Adam Elliott 3, Luke Many, Darrin Essex, Aaron Taylor Tom Freebody tries. Elliott 4 goals) d Grafton Ghosts 20 (Phil Warby 2, Warwick Brown 2 tries. Chris Adamson 2 goals). Referee: Troy Martin.

RESERVE GRADE: Grafton Ghosts 46 (Scott Kilduff 4, Rick Bender 2, Scott Pereira, Jon Carney tries Jason Cheney 5, Bender, Kilduff goals) d Lower Clarence 13 (Damien Randall, Wayne Shannon tries, Anthony Hickling 2 goals).
