THE Singleton Greyhounds remain in the Hunter Valley Group 21 Rugby League Women's 11s hunt following a strong showing at home on Friday night.

Reeling after a 12-4 loss to the Aberdeen Tigers in the previous round, the hosts made amends against the Scone Thoroughbreds at Pirtek Park.

The scores were locked at 0-all at half-time, but Singleton lifted in the second period.

Tyler Kersley and Micaela Merrick dived over the tryline, while Amber Russell kicked a goal in the 10-0 victory.

With the Merriwa Magpies destined to clinch top spot, the showdown between the Murrurundi Mavettes and Greyhounds at Scone Park on November 8 should decide who joins them in the decider the following week.
