Bobcats match NCF Premier League powerhouse Urunga
MACLEAN Bobcats may not be able to reach the North Coast Football Club Coffs Premier League finals but they have illustrated they won't go down softly.
The Bobcats hosted finals-bound Urunga Raiders at Barry Watts Oval on Saturday and emerged with a 1-1 draw against the competition leaders.
The result is a bittersweet one for the Bobcats who would have appreciated a similar one earlier in the season.
The Bobcats are currently seventh on the premiership ladder with 15 points, 10 points behind sixth-placed Coffs Coast Tigers and six ahead of Westlawn Tigers.
Westlawn were thumped 7-0 by Boambee.
Urunga are now one point behind Coffs Lions on the ladder as the Lions beat third-placed Sawtell Scorpions 2-1 yesterday.
In other NCF Premier League games played at the weekend, Northern Storm Thunder snuck away with a 2-1 win over Orara Valley Dingoes, while Coffs Coast beat Woolgoolga Wolves 6-5.
