Mustangs too good for Nanango

THE high scoring action was furious and the Mustangs chalked up their first win of the season at home on Saturday against Nanango.

During the first three rounds Murgon had only managed to post 56 points, and in a high scoring game more than doubled their season's total during round four.

Murgon Mustangs stalwart Peter Bligh proved impossible to contain and crossed the line on four occasions for the home side.

Mustangs centre Charlie Parwan also got among the action and posted a hat trick while Tim Brunjes, Eddie Albury and Luke Bond touched down for the home side during the 10 try romp. Gary Pidgeon had his radar tuned in and slotted nine conversions from 10 attempts, scoring 18 of the total 58 points for Murgon.

Nanango worked hard during the match, but could not match the Mustangs' tempo or their score line.

Shane Williams and Drew Jackson posted doubles during the match with Harley Gilliland scoring the fifth try.

Ashley McDonald and Brian De la Cruz slotted conversions along with Hayden Hockey, who put two over the cross bar, but it was not enough for the visitors who lost the match by 30 points.

In other South Burnett A-grade fixtures Cherbourg Hornets beat the Blackbutt Yarraman Timbertowners in Cherbourg by 54 points to 22 and the Kingaroy Red Ants downed defending premiers Wondai Wolves by 32 points to 26.

Other matches in Murgon included the under-18 fixture between the home side and East Magpies with the visitors scoring a comfortable 46 to 26 victory, while Murgon downed Nanango by 32 points to 22 in the under-16 game and in the under-14s only one conversion separated the Mustangs from the Stags with the home side winning by 14 points to 12 in a close encounter.
