The McPherson's Under 7's played Narromine. Saxon and Jackson continued their great season, with Beau showing how good he is with every run. These boys have been outstanding, but the improvement shown by Lebron, Oscar and Bill in the recent weeks is also very pleasing.

Bill has begun to get very involved and more confident with his running, but he was just beaten to man of the match this week by Oscar whose attitude and effort has been fantastic at training- and it showed on the weekend. A good tough game was played and the boys should be proud of how far they have come in a short time.
Off to Dubbo again on Saturday for a 12.45pm game.
The French Taste Bakery Under 8's hosted Narromine on a boggy track. The game started off evenly until Carter Moran split the defence and ran 20 metres to score and convert his own try.
Bradley Lewis once again showed his team mates the quickest way to the try line with a barnstorming run through the middle to score and convert his try. Jaxson Clarke must be getting tackling practice from his dad with some great bootlace defence.
Aisea Folau was pushing the defensive line backwards with his strong running which lead to Braxton Mulligan scoring one of his three tries. The ever reliable Harvey O'Keefe and Nate Goulthorpe were outstanding in defence, tackling anything that moved while Ned Hewes displayed some elusive running and stepping to dazzle the Narromine defence throughout the match.
The game finished with Parkes seven tries to Narromine's four. Man of the Match went to Braxton Mulligan with Players Player going to Carter Moran. Coach Benjamin Lovett was very impressed with the team's attitude and sportsmanship.
The MP Home Design and Develop Mod League under 10's played against South Dubbo Raidettes last weekend. The girls played really well and are showing improvements each week with some great runs by Charli Milne, Maddison Doering and Aleeya Ehsman.
Emma Hando and Ayesha Carruthers put their bodies on the line for their team while Miley Duff and Charli Milne were strong in defence this week, with both girls also kicking a conversion- something we've been practicing.
The final score of the game was 32-14 to Parkes. Players Player was Corby Fliedner, who scored three tries.
The Bob Skinner Painting and Decorating under 13's played top of the table South Dubbo and had a loss this week with score being 22-4. Our team started off really great but tired in the second half.
Joan Carolan had a great game doing some great tagging in dummy half while Missy Cornelissen also did great tagging and had a few breaks. Layla Logan played on the wing and had some good runs.
Jade Coulston had a great pick up after the ball was dropped by Dubbo and took off up the field but had a fall and was tagged while Grace MacGregor scored in the second half.
Andrew Thomas Building Under 10's won 24-16 against Narromine. Tries were score by Khan Jackson (2), Jett Clarke and Ari Albert. Conversions were successful by Jett Clarke, Joel Whitney, Aiden O'Keefe and Ari Albert.
The Central West Fluid Power Parkes under 12 Blues were in Dubbo last weekend to take on a big Dunedoo outfit.
The Blues were slow off the mark and took their time getting use to the size of their opponents. Oakley "Flash" Fleidner was first to grab the points but it didn't take long for the Dunedoo Swans to hit back and a successful conversion saw the score 6-4 to Dunedoo.
A great set play and strong runs from Ryan Whitney, Kailen Butt, Callum Munday and Ryan Cox again saw Oakley go over the line for his second try of the match with the conversion successful from Jaylin Moran. Dunedoo crossed just before half time to tie up the score at 10-all going into the break, despite the awesome defence by Ryan, Caleb Gould, Linc James and Hamish McGrath.
The Blues started the second half like the first and from a nicely placed kick on the fifth, Oakley picked up a hat-trick with a successful conversion from Lachlan Thomas taking the score to 16-10.Dunedoo hit back immediately after a scoot from dummy half saw a converted try, tying up the score at 16-all.
Off the back of a great set Lochie Thomas took the ball to the defensive line, found a hole and scored the match winner, with the score finishing up 20-16. Harry Turner, Camden Graham, George Thomas and Riley Fernando all had fantastic defensive games this week but here was no doubting the man of the match title belonged to Oakley Fleidner for his superb hat-trick.
Next weekend will be our two Parkes under 12 teams on a Friday August 28 under lights at Pioneer Oval and it promises to be a great spectacle.
The Sportspower and MP Hone Design and Development Under 14's faced the competition leaders Narromine Jets last Saturday in what was expected to be a tough game. Parkes opened proceedings with a try to Aiden Byrnes and a successful conversion.
Both sides fought hard to complete their sets but after several errors resulting in penalties it was Narromine who scored, followed by an unsuccessful conversion. The Jets took possession of the ball and left Parkes on the back foot as they set about chase but strong defence from Toby Cox, Zac Payseno, Jack Milne, Bob McEwen, Aidan Byrnes and Jack Jessop saw the boys stop Narromine from scoring.
The wet slippery conditions were evident as both teams kept losing possession. Narromine scored again giving them the lead before several head high penalties on Daniel Hando saw Marley Moran successfully slotting a penalty, taking the score to 8-all at the break.
After the half-time break Dean Robinson, Oliver Thomas and Joe Monk continued to be consistent in defending the line.
Possession changed and Oliver made a break, running close to 70 metres looking for someone to offload the ball to before deciding to go all the way, for a spectacular try with the conversion by Dean Robinson successful.
This try gave Parkes the lead but the game wasn't over. As the clock counted down however, you could see the desire to hold on to the win was strong for Parkes and they were able to hold Narromine out and win the game 12-8.
The Brian Collins Smash Repairs & Agriwest Under 16s travelled to Nyngan on Saturday and came away with a lucky win. The boys had a slow start with no aggression in both attack and defence. Try scorers for the game were Toby Miller, Kane Bailey, Bayden Moran, Jaime Thorpe, Tye Toomey and Malakia Folau. One conversion was successful from Toby Miller with the full-time score 26-24.
Women League looks strong in Parkes as juniors teams played each other last Saturday at Pioneer Oval.
The Hanson Plumbing and Parkes Services Club SLT Blues played the Whites in wet, soggy, rainy conditions.
Both teams had a really good game and had fun playing each other. The half-time score was 4-nil showing how similar the teams were in ability before the Blues eventually emerged victorious 14-nil.
Tries were scored by Jorja Simpson, Mary Sladden and Olive Moore with one successful conversion by Teagan Smede. The most enjoyable part of the game was playing in the mud followed by a team photo of all the girls playing this season.
After new COVID-19 restrictions were announced that could potentially affect community sport, it was announced on Thursday night with a joint CEO press release that sport in the Central West was safe; great news for the club!
