Four tries makes Moss the man in Ghosts win

A MONSTROUS four try haul to the Ghosts' points machine Joel Moss helped lift the home side to a dominant 34-14 win over Evans Head Bombers at Frank McGuren Field yesterday.

Moss, who has now run in 15 tries for the season, punished the Bombers' right edge defence.

But it was his team work with inside man Blake Winmill which really pleased Ghosts captain/coach Ryan Farrell.

"He scored a couple of absolute rippers combining with Blake, and they were really sharp down the left edge," Farrell said.

"The first 40 minutes, everyone played really good and we were sharp all over the park.

"But the second half we dropped a lot of ball and made it hard for ourselves."

The Ghosts were always in control of the match, dominating possession and the scoreboard through the first half.

And despite being disappointed with a few aspects of ball control in the second stanza, Farrell took plenty of positives from the defensive effort.

"Because we gave them so much ball, we had to do a lot of defending, and the way we ripped in for each other was really good," he said.

"We had the rhythm in the first half, and it just went missing in the second half a bit and we let them run in a couple of tries.

"It's something we can look at working on, and I'm confident that when we do string two halves of footy together it will be a pretty special 80 minutes."
