During the remainder of the first half, Cambridge scored a point for their team. WA continued to give it their all, passing the ball to each other down the field. Their efforts were interrupted by the end of the first half but they were determined to make a comeback in the second half.

Despite their hard effort, Cambridge left the game with a win on their back. Though WA may have lost, their teamwork and positive attitudes really stood out throughout the game.
