Matches mark end to summer season
THE Supa Oldie Soccer summer season comes to a close with this week with the final games to be played ahead of the end-of-season BBQ.
All games will commence at either 6pm or 6.45pm. A courtesy bus will be running for those who need a lift home at the end of the presentations.
Those players who collected a perpetual trophy at last year’s presentation should return the trophy today.
Nominations are due for the winter competition and organisers are keen for them to be lodged so they can compile the draw and advise teams.
In last week’s matches, Happy Campers downed Total Graffiti 3-2 in a very social encounter. Paul Stockton, Chris Pierce and Leigh Predo scored for the Campers but then one of the Campers did the right thing and scored a goal for Graffiti.
The Total Graffiti players then pulled down the nets thinking they were doing the right thing but unfortunately they were on Field 1 and there were two more games to be played.
Australia started a player short in their game against The Blues and despite trailing 1-0 early after B White opened the scoring, fought their way back to secure a 3-2 win. J Butler finished with a goal-scoring double for the winners while Brett Butcher also goaled. Khris Scott and Linda Woefle won the player awards.
Hanks Kitchen defeated Micks Mowing 6-4 with Chris Rumpf scoring a double.
Misfits and Grafton Thunder played out an epic 4-4 draw with M Lynawood and John Gorrie both scoring doubles. Lisa Linnerton, K Hunt, R Goodwin and Mark Newman also found the net.
Winmills Campers and Black Toyota had a great tussle with the teams finishing locked 2-2 at the final whistle. Country Energy scored with just four seconds on the clock to snatch a 1-1 draw in their clash against XVII. A short-handed Dilligafs were forced to borrow a few players to make a contest of their game with Road Runners.
Tony Powell opened the scoring for Road Runners before P Connell levelled the scores. Dave Groth and Dave Anderson then found the back of the net to seal a 3-1 win.
Poles & Holes reversed their recent form slump to post a 2-0 win over Grafton PO Hotel. They obviously borrowed well as imports Theo and Bobby scored the goals.
Cangy-Angy also borrowed well in their game against KAOS with J Ford and M Lynwood scoring to give Cangy a 2-0 lead early. KAOS then fought back with Karen Barlow putting away two to lock up the match for a great last 10 minutes. Stuart Gerathy then found the net to give Cangy a 3-2 win.
In the final match, the Saps and Flat Whites played out a 2-2 draw.
