Johnson field goal snatches win for Warriors over Raiders
« on: April 30, 2022, 05:26:08 PM »

Shaun Johnson snatched a 21-20 extra time win for the Warriors over the Raiders with an 82nd minute field goal at Moreton Daily Stadium.

For the second time since his return to the Warriors this season, Johnson stepped up to secure victory for his team after a late penalty goal by Reece Walsh sent the game to extra time.  
It was a heart breaking defeat for the Raiders, who were the better team for most of the match but have now lost their last five games in succession.

The Raiders led 20-12 at halftime but did not score a point in the second term.

Canberra captain Jack Wighton (dangerous contact) and Kiwis Test forward Joey Tapine (gouging) face an anxious wait to learn whether they are charged by the match review committee  after both were placed on report.

Daejarn Asi had a debut to remember for the Warriors after joining the club mid-week as a replacement for Ash Taylor, who is set to announce his retirement due to a hip injury, with the former Cowboys playmaker producing two try assists.
