9:19 am on 16 August 2009

The Vodafone Junior Warriors recovered from a 0-12 deficit to overpower the homeside Parramatta 42-22 in last nights 23 rd-round NYC encounter.

With three games to play in the regular season, the Vodafone Junior Warriors are now seventh on 27 points, three clear of ninth-placed North Queensland and still only three points away from fourth spot.

After trouncing Gold Coast 52-4 last Sunday, last nights win also gave the Vodafone Junior Warriors back to back wins at last after a recent trend that has seen a victory followed by a defeat.

The Warriors scored three converted tries to lead 18-12 at halftime followed by three more early in the second spell to leap to a 36-12 advantage, the 36 points accumulated in a matter of 28 minutes.
