LPSSA Success For Forbes Students
Both Forbes North and Forbes Public School have plenty to be happy about after some outstanding results at the Lachlan PSSA Champs last week. With restrictions playing havoc with postponements and delays, the anticipated carnival was finally held last Friday July 30 in Parkes. Both schools have a number of students off to Dubbo for Western Athletics in Week 8. Well done and watch this space for more stories over the coming weeks!
Magpies Soar In All Four Over Jets
Forbes Magpies first grade side returned to the winners circle in emphatic fashion with a resounding 54-18 win over an injury ravaged Narromine Jets at Spooners Oval in Forbes last weekend. It was a timely win for the Magpies and a reminder of the potential the club has after reserves also got the job done in a hard fought 12-10 win of their own. The Magpie juniors also took care of business saluting 52-14 while in the League Tag the local girls also got the nod in a tight tussle 8-6.
Platypi Have Tough Day At Office
Forbes Platypi First XV side look set to finish fourth after losing to Bathurst Bulldogs 28-19 at Anne Ashwood Park in Bathurst last Saturday. Ironically, it also appears likely both sides will clash again in two weeks in a rematch on the same ground irrespective of last round results. Forbes play Dubbo tomorrow in Round 15 of the Central West Blowes Menswear Cup at Grinstead Oval with First XV kick off at 3:15pm.
