Erin Clark. Junior Warriors v Junior Eels

Canberra rocked the Vodafone Junior Warriors with two late tries to deny them their first win of the season in today's seventh-round NYC clash at GIO Stadium.

The Vodafone Junior Warriors were leading a tight contest 10-6 when the Raiders went ahead through loose forward Hudson Young and added another to surge to a match-winning 18-10 lead in the final moments.

There was time for one final strike from the Vodafone Junior Warriors through standoff Chanel Tavita-Harris but it was too late then to affect the outcome.

It was 20 minutes before they opened the scoring with a try to wing Mat Faitotoa, Canberra responding to hold a 6-4 advantage at the break.

The Vodafone Junior Warriors were back in front early in the second half when Joe Vuna's try converted by Kane Telea had them 10-6 in front.

There it stayed until the late stages when Canberra found a way to win the game leaving the Vodafone Junior Warriors still without a win this season.
