The Bega Chicks are on the cusp of an undefeated regular season campaign after downing Eden 34-0 on Wednesday night.

THE Bega Chicks league-tag side have maintained their undefeated record, winning their 12th game from as many starts this season with a 34-0 demolition of the Eden Tigerettes.

The clubs clashed at the George Brown Memorial Oval in Eden in a deferred match on Wednesday night, and the Chicks wasted no time in opening the scoring.

Alliera Bower-Scott crossed first after just seven minutes, and then it was Georgina Pearce setting the field alight to touch down,

The Tigerettes fought hard, but found Bega’s precise defensive pattern difficult to make incisions into.

Riuel Umback finished off a fine movement, dashing over to score and extend the Chicks’ lead to 14-0 after Kezie Apps’ conversion.

Bega’s first half blitz continued with Pearce and Bower-Scott both collecting their second four-pointers, and Apps converting the later try on the halftime bell for a 24-0 lead.

It was a resolute Eden Tigerettes that came out in the second half, and they restricted Bega to two tries, with the only points coming from tries to Tegan Mundy and Kezie Apps, and one Apps conversion.

It finished 34-0, with Pearce and Bower-Scott the Chicks’ best, and Hayley Jessop and Tegan Mundy also turning in busy performances.

The Chicks went into the game without prolific point-scorer and Captain Joccooa Rogers, and team manager Trudi Badullovich was impressed with the side’s all-round team performance, Badullovich was also full of praise for referee Leigh Hennessey, who showed he has a great understanding of the rules of league tag, and when his playing days are finally over, she believes he will make a great middle man.
