Orange City's Woodward Street Quality Meats under 17s and Chemmart under 13s both scored emphatic Central West Junior Rugby Union victories last weekend, over Orange Emus and Mudgee respectively.
The under-17 outfit wore special, one-off jerseys to help raise awareness for mental health organisations Headspace and batyr, with Ashcroft's Let's Make Better being part of the day too.
The City boys started the game well with Harry Grant stepping his way through Emus' defence to score the first try of the game.
City forwards Logan Buckley, Andrew Romano and Oscar Watson were strong in attack and were rewarded with tries. The backline worked well together which lead to Harry West, Sean Carpenter and Will Burdack scoring tries with Grant capping off a great game by scoring his second too.
West converted three of those tries, securing the 46-14 win.
Raph Wald, Tom Bray and Burdack were awarded the On Trac Ag best and fairest points, with Romano being voted the Ward's Plumbling players' player.
The under-13 Lions' rematch with the Wombats was played out in similar fashion to their first game, with Orange City dominating the scrums and constantly keeping the ball moving through the backs.
Andrew Ingham crossed the stripe in the opening minutes, his first of a brilliant hat-trick.
Shortly after, on the back of a superb tackle and then steal by Tama Nixon, Ingham was over again.
The tries flowed with Angus Tremain and Harrison Kukla both ploughing through the defense for five-pointers. Mania Nixon flew down the side-line and a terrific inside ball to Hayden Buesnel and through to Trixie Ward to score.
Kukla again had the ball, Harrison Wood following him down the paddock to receive the ball and score under the posts, with Tremain converting.
Quick thinking and a great offload by Alexa McKinnon-Braid saw Lily Bone saw her push over the line for her first of two tries.
Temana Te Rupe and Lachlan Newman both gave the Wombats a lesson in tackling, and Alex O'Brien's big hits stopped Mudgee's trying stars in their tracks.
Ilka Gordon took a fantastic catch and set off, gaining ground and then moving the ball on to Buesnel, whose passes were perfect for the whole match.
James Walker constantly supported the ball carrier, and both he and Jamie Adams were invaluable in the lineouts both reaching to steal many a Mudgee ball.
Another try to Tremain, which he magnificently converted from the sideline, one each to Ingham and Bone, and four more to Kukla, and a conversion by Newman brought the win to 78-7 to the Lions.
Gordon and O'Brien shared the D&K Ward Rural Fencing players' player while Ingham, Kukla and Tremain claimed the Olly's Earthworks best and fairest points.
