Match report from Referee Scott Reilly:
Three 30-minute periods of varying standards as both teams got a look at their player pool for the new season. White Plains started strongest, putting together a few phases, but poor handling often led to turnovers. When Lions had the ball WP defended strongly, making it hard for VL to get a game plan executed.
As the match went on, a tiring VL team let WP hit a couple of overlaps and put a couple of tries in. Good run out as an opener for the new season.
