WINS | [1992] Round 13: Penrith 18 Western Suburbs 10

Sunday 28th June at Campbelltown Sports Ground

Penrith 18 – Tries: Leeds (1), Mackay (1); Goals: Leeds (5) | Western Suburbs 10


The Panthers posted the first points when fullback Andrew Leeds hoisted up a high kick 15 metres out and regathered it over the try line and grounded it. His conversion gave the visitors a 6-0 lead.

The Magpies soon after narrowed the lead with a penalty conversion, and then tied it up with a try.

Penrith once again regained the lead through a penalty conversion to Leeds and held the 8-6 lead going into half time.

The Panthers further extended their lead early in the second half when a John Cartwright grubber was spilled by the Wests defence, with Graham Mackay picking up the scraps and planting it in the left corner. Leeds’ conversion from the sideline made it 14-6.

Whilst the Magpies were next to score to close it to 14-10, the Panthers closed out of the contest in the muddy conditions with two penalty conversions, including one at full time to record a gutsy 18-10 victory, and provide a bright spot for the Panthers in the days after the death of Ben Alexander.
