Davies man of the match for First National

SOS SOCCER: First National and Odd Balls played their game at a fast pace despite the heat in last week's round of Grafton Supa Oldie Summer Soccer at Rushforth Park.

Nigel Davies had the moment of the match when his own keeper kicked the ball at his head while falling down and the opposition repeated the effort to finish him off.

Final score was one-nil to First National. J Cousemacker and K Starr stood out from the crowd.

The Hackers and Shockers had a close game with Shockers winning 4-3. Karina Broomhall, Amanda Daffey and Paul Moore were picked as best players.

The Grasshoppers and South Services had a friendly game filled with fun and laughter. All goals were scored in the first half with the Grasshoppers coming out on top 3-2. T Clark, H Blen and K Murray stood out in this game.

Tyre Power Pros dominated their game although GPS No Class had the excuse of having been back at school with students. The score was 10 to 2, best players E Gallagher, M Danvers and Trinette Reimer.

Total Graffiti in the second with two quick goals in succession in the second half by Thabani saw Total Graffiti prevail in a tight contest with Oops.

South High United played Road Runners and won 3-2 in a fast game where everyone tried hard. Best players were P Johnson, A Bale and Matt McKee.

Blue Jays and Valley Signs both felt the heat but by half time Blue Jays led 2-0. The second half was much the same with lots of shots wide of the mark and Zac Page getting a screamer of an own goal. Final score was 3-2 to Blue Jays.

Wowies won 4-3 in a close game with Boral Bangers, Reece Angry Birds and Couties played out a 3-all draw, Wisdom won 6-3 over Saps and Poles and Holes beat Cartridge World 5-2.
