TUESDAY NOVEMBER 15 2016 SPORT 27 V1 - CAVE01Z01MA THE Kiwi Warriors Jesse Hockey kicked a penalty goal to give his side a dramatic 23-22 win against KFC Feds Devils on Saturday night. The Warriors big units in the forward pack and the centres caused plenty of trouble for the Devils defence, helping the side to remain undefeated through the first two rounds of the season. The Devils were tenacious at the breakdown, winning turnover ball on several occasions to relieve defensive pressure. but it wasnt enough to get the side across the line. The Warriors struck early with a scintillating run from fly half Hockey, swerving through the Devils defence off the back of a scrum 20 metres out. The game was shaping up as a battle of the fly halves, as Devils playmaker Wayd Nibbs turned the ball inside for Amino Masala to slip through a gap and provide a return pass for Nibbs to score, levelling the scores. A kick over the defensive line into the in-goal by Hockey was not cleaned up by the Devils who showed indecision as the ball rolled close to the dead ball line. This allowed Warriors fullback Harry Wheokie to pounce on the ball for a try to regain the lead. Some quick footwork from Wheokie released winger Victor Teo, who was always going to be hard to stop with so much momentum, as he bumped off two would be tacklers on the way to the try line to extend the Warriors lead to ten points. Devils then hit back before half time but last seasons grand finalists went further behind through a penalty goal early in the second half. Devils never gave up and a well executed play saw Nigel Lingen cross for his second try, giving Devils the lead but it wasnt to last.
